I have been working with Nicole Altamirano for over 5 years and I've seen such a wonderful blossoming by Nicole. She has represented us for a couple sales and we continue to refer her to family and friends. She does everything from start to finish and is tremendously detail oriented. Her devotion is evident and does everything possible to make the buying and selling process smooth for her clients. Good job Nicole!
Murre is certainly as good as it gets. He has lived his entire life in Davis and knows the market each year. His character is fitting for the real estate profession. During the whole process of selling our family home he was so easy to work with - attentive to every detail, working as the intermediary between buyers and sellers, promptly responding to all correspondence, obtaining bids for repairs and following up on the work. He was always available to open the home whenever the contractors/inspectors needed access. I can say with ease, Murre will guide and provide you with great care through the whole process.
I just sold my home in Davis, and just as my home was going on the market, both my listing agent and myself went out of town. I wasn't stressed in the least, because Nicole was on the job. My house sold in just 20 days for the asking price. Nicole handled everything and kept me organized and informed. Nicole was a delight to work with. Friendly, helpful, consultative, efficient. I couldn't be happier.
Working with Sandy was a great experience. She was extremely dedicated to finding us the right house and worked tirelessly to ensure the deal closed. Sandy was available when needed and had answers to all of our questions. She knows the Davis market well and has a good network of resources for getting the job done efficiently.
Suzanne did the impossible-she not only sold our home that could be described as "unsalable" but she sold it at a price that was more than we expected. She then negotiated the purchase of a new home for us all under a very restricted timeline. This was no easy task. Suzanne gave us 100% commitment and she artfully managed the entire transaction. Simply put, Suzanne is an expert at what she does and we highly recommend Suzanne Kimmel for any real estate needs.
Anita has helped me over the past few years with my real estate needs. Meeting Anita after working with other real estate agents is like going from night to day. She works with a great team at First Street Real Estate and has access to great resources and knowledge of the market. She is simply brilliant in this profession.
I feel very fortunate that a colleague referred me to Claire Black Slotton of First Street Real Estate. From the moment I decided to move to Davis, Claire shepherded me through the entire process with finesse and calm. It's easy to lose patience with a short sale (they take a longtime) but Claire kept me on an even keel. She was always willing to answer my numerous questions and to participate fully in the process. She even managed to find me a month-to-month rental in which I've lived while waiting for the sale to be finalized. (In Davis, filled as it is with student apartments on yearlong leases, this is nothing short of miraculous.) Not only that, but she got me a really good sale price.
With her delightful sense of humor and generous spirit, Claire is a walking advertisement for the qualities I have come to associate with Davis: friendliness, consideration for others, quiet professionalism, and intelligence. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to buy property in this great community.
Moving to Davis was one of the best decisions we have made. We found our dream home through the excellent guidance of our realtor, Murre Traverso. He offers a great balance of professional and personal qualities that one would want when dealing with one the biggest decisions - buying a home.

Suzanne Kimmel was recommended to us by a friend of our daughter. We live four hours from Davis and were only in town for the weekend to search for a condo. When we arrived, Suzanne had the listings that she thought would meet our needs ready for us to see. With Suzanne's expert help we placed an offer the next day. With her expert guidance we had our bid accepted and closed escrow in 12 days. She also recommended an expert contractor, CGI Construction, to take care of the repairs for us. We would definitely use Suzanne again and would recommend her to anyone needing an agent in the Davis area. Thanks Suzanne Kimmel !!!

Sandy found our dream home. She maintains all the characteristics I look for in a realtor: consultative, timely, understanding, and always professional. Her ability to walk the find line of negotiation was very impressive. If you are looking for someone to not simply represent you, but to partner with you, then you should work with Sandy.
Anita has helped me in the past few years for a few real estate purchases. She is an amzing real estate professional. She knows her job and is very knowledgeable regarding real estate issues. She is always ready to help and goes over and beyond in her duties to help you close the deal. Anita will never push you into buying property. She would rather lose a deal than to make her clients unhappy. She is simply, BRILLIANT.
Our transaction was unique. Claire immediately researched for our particular needs and guided us through the process and red tape in an impressively professional manner. It was a treat to work with her! And we would consider her first for future needs. Her caring and service are her assets.
Mark & Belinda Webb
We are repeat clients of Suzanne's on both the buy and sell side of each transaction and could not be more impressed with her services. She has taken ownership of the process in each case, but never left us feeling that we were out of the loop or that we were not ultimately in control of how the process unfolded. In each case, her suggestions and recommendations were spot-on. She is truly an expert in her field. Should we have need for services of a Realtor in the future we will look no further than Suzanne. She has our highest recommendation.
Client of Suzanne Kimmel
My wife and I relocated to the Davis-Sacramento area a month ago. Suzanne helped us find a beautiful home in West Sacramento. She treated us as though we were her only clients. She worked within short deadlines, and kept the complex, and sometimes bewildering sale process on track. We would not have closed, or moved into our new home without her help. I wish I could give her ten stars, but alas, I'm restricted to five.
I had the pleasure of having my house sold by Sandy. She was amazing! She found a buyer and got it sold only 2 days after having it listed. She was so helpful with the inspections and even let my boys in when they got locked out. We adore Sandy and highly recommend her for your real estate needs.
Anita is better than excellent! I will consider her my agent for any future real estate needs and highly recommend her.
It was a pleasure working with Suzanne. She has numerous years of experience, strong knowledge of the Davis housing market and a friendly and easy-going personality. It was wonderful to work with someone so patient and dedicated to her clients. She is hard working, efficient and generous with her time. Suzanne is highly recommended for anyone trying to find their place to call home!
Murre helped us buy our first home years ago and has always kept in touch with us throughout the years. With a growing family it was time for us to find a larger home and we knew we didn’t need to look elsewhere for another realtor. He listened to our requests before, during and after the sale. Murre is truly dedicated to the satisfaction of his clients.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Selling my house was so important to me. Relief from the financial burden of the mortgage and the ability to save the money that was going to the property will enable me to pursue my desire to return to school and become a human rights professional. It is people like each of you that renew my faith in the human spirit of loving kindness. We have not known each other long and our opportunities to meet were all based on business relationships...yet, in the process, I found you amazing women that I respect and care for in ways I never expected. Thank you for being not just my realtor and my short sale expert, ...but my friends. As I pursue my future goals, I hope that I can give back to the world with the same unselfish, loving kindness that you showed me. Simply saying 'thank you' will never be quite enough to express my gratitude...
I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole. She was absolutely fantastic! She really knows her business well. She made the process of buying my first home a breeze. I felt that she was attentive to all my needs and always responded promptly. Being a first-time home buyer, I'm sure I was a pain in her neck, but she certainly never made me feel that way. You'll be in good hands with Nicole!
Claire was honest, open, and friendly with us. She explained things thoroughly and carefully (and realistically!), which was very valuable to us as first-time homebuyers. She is also gentle and soft-spoken which we appreciated. We have encountered pushy realtors in the past (who called us over and over) but Claire let us move at a pace that was comfortable for us. The service Claire provided us was about the only bright spot in a pretty stressful month. She really helped us wade through the muck! She kept encouraging us and cheering us up when things got sticky!. We have already given her name to others and will continue to do so.
Ben and Lorna Wilson
Suzanne's thoroughness is very impressive. We felt extremely comfortable with Suzanne handling the many details of the sale and purchase of our home. The process transpired exactly as she stated at the outset. She was outstanding to work with and I would give her my highest recommendation.
We truly had a wonderful real estate experience with Anita. Throughout the process of purchasing an investment property, Anita was sincere, honest, and presented herself in a professional manner. She clearly works hard for her client's benefit.
K. Munagala & Geeta Rayala
My wife and I were referred to Murre from friends of ours and we were immediately impressed with his approach and knowledge of the real estate market. Looking for an ideal property can be difficult, but we felt he made the process pleasant and smooth. It is easy for us to see why he is successful in his profession.
Jeffrey & Elizabeth Shuster
I just wanted to express to you my appreciation for all you have done for me! You quoted a realistic listing price for my home in today's market. That listing and all your hard word sold my home in 3 weeks! After I had been with with another agent and company for 4 or 5 months, with no results. You were a delightful breath of fresh air! Having to deal with someone that would not speak to me or return my calls for weeks was very frustrating. I was very grateful that you made sure I knew, at all times, the status of my home! It was amazing to me how fast my home did sell! I believe an excellent agent made the difference! During the process of escrow I was very anxious, due to my previous experience! Your honesty and constant communication helped me to relax! I feel that you went to great lengths to protect my interests, even though you were the buyer's agent as well! You're the greatest, Claire! I won't hesitate to recommend you to everyone.
Suzanne is great! To say she goes the extra mile for her clients is an understatement. Her prompt implementation was refreshing and her professional sources were a page long. She knew who to delegate a job to and for a reasonable price. I was most impressed by how each professional/worker we employed responded to Suzannes' needs. It was evidence of her professionalism and ability to maintain business relationships.
We met Murre at a fundraiser for one of the local schools. His active dedication to the community is clearly evident. When it was time to sell our home we turned to Murre who was reliable and hardworking every step of the way. His sincerity and high level of integrity add to his great reputation. We are very thankful that we had such a good experience.
I met Anita at an open house. She answered a lot of my general questions and offered to send e-mails on available houses. anita was very willing to provide assistance at whatever level I choose. When it came time for purchasing a home, her negotiation skills were a great asset.
Ms. Pallavi Mamidi
Sandy did an excellent job in representing us during the sale of our home. She listened to what was important to us, provided ongoing feedback and regular communication. She created a great presentation of our home, including outstanding marketing, pricing and excellent staging. She was willing to schedule open houses and showings to fit our busy family life. In the end, we got exactly what we were asking for and were very pleased.
Roman & Cammy Rieger
Throughout the process, we always felt that Suzanne was in complete control of the situation, and provided extremely valuable advice. She handled some very complex and tense negotiations with the sellers. Most importantly, Suzanne showed that she actually cared deeply about us as her clients.
Claire understood my needs perfectly. She is a hard and devoted worker - and worked very hard for her commission. She had great patience and went beyond the call of duty.
Experienced and exceptional service… Truly an advocate for his clients!
