Julie Olson2 weeks ago I met Debbie and Josh when I was looking for my new home. They were very friendly and professional and very patient with me. They took my wants and needs very serious and even though it was a stressful, time due to the flying out the door inventory and COVID-19 issues they continued to reassure me my new home was out there waiting for me!! I felt comfortable with them since day one and I know I have made two new friends in the new area of Henderson, NV. Debbie & Josh are two of the most hard working, friendliness and fun people you will ever meet! They put up with me for 5 months and I have to say I enjoyed them both very much!! If they can put up with me, they can work with anyone!! Best experience ever!! Jules Olson 😀
Wendy Le 1 week ago We were fortunate to have engaged Joshua Nickelsen (from The Perna Group) as our realtor for the sale of our former rental property. He was referred to us through another agent who posted an inquiry on Facebook to assist with our area. He reacted to the posting and contacted us within minutes! Since we reside in California, we weren’t sure who we could trust to sell our property so we had a lot of questions. He took adequate time to answer our questions and gathered necessary information to get started. Joshua is down to earth, informative, and extremely patient. What we particularly appreciated was his honest feedback and responsiveness – often we heard back from him within the hour (often minutes!). He worked diligently to ensure we received the most value for our home through a thorough review of the comparables. This process was very important to us because the property needed quite a bit of work and we were not willing to spend more money to rehabilitate it. Within a few days, he had contacted the property manager to take a quick sweep of the property, had it cleaned, took pictures, and the property was LISTED! As a result of his hard work and diligence, our property was sold after TWO weeks on the market and near our asking price! We couldn’t be happier with our choice to go with Joshua and his team. The entire process was seamless! We will most definitely continue to work with Joshua for any real estate transactions in our future, and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!

They were slow and didn’t get back to us very fast, probably because of the price range on houses. Angel was a savior and just wanted the best for us and answered as fast as she could, I would give her a 10+ if it was available because she is amazing, precise and cares for her clients. Any question can be asked and she works to get it done. From financing, to showing the property, to getting the questions answered from the seller. Felt she almost overworked herself for us, I would recommend Angel to anyone that needs a house in Las Vegas. She is a kind soul that definitely needs a raise! if we ever want a different house, Angel is our top realtor. Don’t hesitate to contact her because she get’s the work done and makes you feel valued
