Testimonials

Where to start?  I could tell you, you are a fabulous real estate agent but I have told you that when we began working together.  The essence of what I am feeling is so much more.  You have looked out for me at every turn …and beyond the client relationship.  You have reached out to help me in friendship.  Your caring reflects in all that you do and I am grateful for and admire your generosity of spirit.  You are one special real estate agent.  Anyone that wants to buy and sell should have you on their side.  Thank you Nazzi Shishido.

Nazzi is a wonderful real estate agent. She is patient, honest and, best of all, determined and relentless. I'm sure we would not have closed on our current house without her. If you are looking for someone to find you a place in Los Gatos or the surrounding area, Nazzi is the one to go to.

Nazzi is hands down the best realtor we have worked with!  She helped us with 2 transactions, buying our dream house and selling our old house both in Los Gatos.  She understands the market and specifically the city of Los Gatos like no other realtor.  I have worked with several other realtors in the past, but I always felt that they had alternate agendas vs. my best interest in mind.  With Nazzi, I felt the complete opposite.  She is extremely trust-worthy, professional, proactive and a strong negotiator. She would review the other parties' proposal and negotiate favorable terms on our behalf before bringing the proposal to us.  It was a privilege to work with Nazzi, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch realtor.

Having bought and sold homes in San Francisco, Maine, Los Gatos, and Santa Cruz.  I have yet to meet another agent with the savvy, expertise and initiative to get things done as professionally as Ms. Shishido.

Perhaps it's her back ground in engineering, or the due diligence she puts into the sales and marketing equation-whatever "IT" is makes the experience of the real estate transaction a smooth and positive one.

She is currently my go to gal for short sale properties here on my side of the hill. There's a reason why she is in the top 1% in her industry despite the turbulence of the market. I just wish I had more cash to speculate with.

Above and Beyond and a godsend! That’s the best way I can describe our experience with Nazzi.  I met Nazzi at an open house for a property she had listed. Her style and approach was professional and engaging and she really represented her seller very well. She answered all my questions and knew so much about the property.  She gave me privacy, while looking at the house and not like some relators that will not leave you alone. I walked saying to myself that when we were ready to sell our home, I will call her and I did.  Nazzi’s marketing, staging, home preparation and attention to detail made possible for our home to sell in 2 days for a lot more than our asking price.  Thank you Nazzi.

We used Nazzi Shishido of Alain Pinel Realtors to list our home when my wife and I "right sized" from our home of 30 years. Nazzi was truly amazing from the very beginning with a professional analysis of our home's value; to the on-line virtual tour she designed and put together; to the ads she wrote and ran in our local newspaper; and, to the open houses she had almost every weekend.  Throughout this process Nazzi helped guide us through not only the personal side of letting our 30 year home go but she helped us through the financial side by negotiating TOP DOLLAR for us.

We have in the past and will continue to recommend Nazzi Shishido to all our friends whether they are buyers or sellers.  Because it is our opinion and belief you will not find a more personable, knowledgeable, hard working, understanding and ethical Realtor the Nazzi.  Plus wouldn't you guess it ... she loves ALL animals especially her pug of course!

We recently bought our home with Nazzi in Los Gatos and we were absolutely blown away by her professionalism, close care, kind patients, knowledge and resources at her finger tips...Our purchase was not an easy one (trust me) and it came right down to the wire (on Christmas Eve!!!) with surprise issues but Nazzi always knew exactly what to do and how to handle the situation without so much as a flinch...No joke, she was & is Awesome... I have bought a few homes in my life using different realtors and I am sorry but Nazzi Shishido is the absolute BEST by miles! This woman has style for miles, class, experience, massive respect within the community and she is wicked smart, ...She is a "real" realtor & the true definition of a PRO AND SHE HAS EARNED IT........ We would highly recommend her to anyone on the planet when buying or selling a home, most likely the best decision one could ever make when making such an important move in life....The only sad part, is that when its all over....You will miss seeing Nazzi like the desert misses the rain, she is such a wonderful Joy to be around & have on your side...

Nazzi has represented our interest on several occasions, both as sellers and buyers, for high-end properties as well as for lower priced properties. Nazzi knows the market well, anticipates markets changes, and gets the deal done; she is on top of every detail, from disclosures to inspections, to  staging. When repairs are needed, she recommends capable, available, and highly skilled professionals you can trust. Nazzi is highly professional, personable, and easy to work with. Furthermore, she pays attention to every detail in a contract, keeps everything transparent and ethical for all parties, and the transaction gets done on time and without drama.

-Catherine A.   


We found Nazzi through a glowing recommendation from a friend. I have to say that Nazzi exceeded our expectations in every way. She was ultra proactive through every stage of the process and made buying our fabulous home almost effortless. When it came to closing the deal her expert negotiating skills came into play. Nazzi has the most fantastic network of contacts of everyone you could possibly need both throughout the buying process and after. It cannot be underestimated how useful this is.

If you are buying or selling property I cannot recommend Nazzi highly enough.

-Christine L.  


Nazzi has helped me buy and sell homes in the Los Gatos area and I can honestly say she is the best agent period. She knows the industry like the back of her hand and is overall very intelligent, with a diverse background ranging from a masters degree in engineering to operating large scale businesses in other industries. Nazzi is passionate about finding the RIGHT home for her buyers and isn't interested in just a quick sale. She will also fight for her sellers to get the best price within reason and is refreshingly honest about what you can expect given market conditions at the time. She also has a heart of gold!

Our house is in the heart of Silicon Valley, but one mile up to the top of a narrow, private road containing about 20 other homes.  The house and lot are large and well-equipped, and the views of the valley are spectacular.  But not everyone is comfortable driving up the private road.  So, it took  a carefully orchestrated sales campaign: 1) expert photography; 2) well-worded brochure and ads; 3) exact timing; 4) market-sensitive pricing and 5) Nazzi's first-class reputation within the local real estate community.   Bottom line: An offer was received and accepted one week after the MLS listing, with only one public open house and at $100,000 above asking price.   Nazzi is the best!

It gives me great pleasure to talk about our experience working with Nazzi. In fact, I could not think of anyone else that I could be happier to talk about than Nazzi. She is an amazing real estate agent and person.  From the moment we choose her to represent us we felt that she has one mission,  and one mission only: to get the best deal possible for us. Today, my wife and I live together with our two boys in a beautiful property that Nazzi helped us find. Our life is better because of her. We worked with Nazzi on two transactions. First, it was the house we currently live in, which we purchased about 3 years ago. We spent about 6 months looking for the house before we meet her at an open house. We liked her from the moment we met her. We worked with other agents before and we realized, as soon as we met her, that she is in a different league. She is very  knowledgeable, experienced, driven, and very interested in getting the right deal for the customer. We told her that we do not want to rush, we want to take the time to find the right property. And especially because of that, I still cannot believe that she has never been late answering emails. If we sent her an email on Saturday evening, we got an answer back on Saturday evening. Frankly, I really do not know how she does it. Anyway, we saw quite a few properties that my wife and I liked, that we felt they were the right properties for us. And we were so wrong! Looking back, none of the properties we liked at that time comes even close to the one we ended up buying. Nazzi had quite a few opportunities to close the deal and get us a house but instead of doing that she opened our mind, she educated us and made us see what we did not see at that time. She kept saying "no, I don't think you will be happy in this house", "this is not a house for you guys", "this house is not a good investment". We really felt she is on our side, that she is not eager to close the deal no matter what, get the commission and move on. After a few months of searching, she recommended us a house, which we ended up buying. It is an amazing property in Los Gatos, one my wife and I feel we will grow old in. We could have not found any other house that would have been better than this house. On top of everything else, the house increased its value more than 60% in 3 years(!). Even though we do not look at the house as an investment, Nazzi definitely helped us make a great investment.

A few months ago we have decided to sell our rental and asked Nazzi to represent us even though we knew the area the house is located in is not one where she has many clients. She was very kind and accepted it. She did a fantastic job preparing the house for sale, bringing in contractors and coordinating all the work, bringing in an amazing stager and negotiating with the buyer. She took care of everything for us! Our rental property ended up being the best sold unit in the complex, ever, and by far. We could have not asked for more.

If you’re looking for an agent, you will not find a better one than Nazzi. If you have any questions or you would like to talk more about Nazzi, please feel free to contact me directly though Zillow. I would be more than happy to help.

Nazzi can only be described as amazing in professionalism, responsiveness, knowledge, and execution. She helped us prepare our home to be marketed as well as representing us as our real estate agent. We have moved all over the world and used many real estate agents. Nazzi is the best agent we have ever used and I would highly recommend her

-Brent R.   


We bought our house with Nazzi several years ago, but we remain friends to this day, that says a lot about the personal relationships she develops with her clients.

She was very patient with us during our long search for the perfect house, she always had our interest in mind. And when we finally found our house, she used all of her expertise and helped us get our house despite multiple bids that was going on!

-Dr. Mark P.

Nazzi is proactive, appropriately aggressive, loyal and very well connected.  She help us buy our house. Not only is she tenaciously helpful during the search and purchase phases, but several years later she remains a valuable source of information and assistance.

Selecting Nazzi to sell our house was the best decision we made. She guided us through the process, helped to maximize the attractiveness of our house including staging and did a terrific job of managing interest and ultimately negotiating our sale. We highly recommend her.

-Richard D.   


A professional in all senses of the word. Nothing was too much trouble. Made to whole process simple and straightforward. Supporting documentation was completed as it should be. Good at listening and putting forward alternative thoughts and ideas.

-Jamie M.   


Nazzi handled the sale of a condo for me in Santa Clara CA. Her pre-sale guidance, strategy, market knowledge, and suggestions to present the home at its best were spot on. She is very results-oriented, efficient, and knowledgeable. I am happy to provide a stellar review for her, with the highest recommendation. I would work with her again without hesitation. Thank you, Nazzi!

We have been house-hunting for a long time. Way too long for my liking. We were quite frustrated with previous realtors: lacking competence, questionable negotiation skills, you name it. Then we ran into Nazzi by pure coincidence. Very soon, house-hunting turned into fun, we felt well represented  and well advised, and now we are the proud owners of a wonderful new home. Regarding Nazzi's negotiation skills: we got our new home by winning a highly competitive bid; according to the previous owners, there were 6 bids; ours was the best, but only few thousand bucks above the 2nd bid. Good job, Nazzi

I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful representation you gave me during the sale of my house.  Your advice Nazzi prior to listing was extremely beneficial to us.  I know it made a difference in my being able to put the best possible product on the market.  You provided us with excellent representation.  I was impressed with the quality of advertisement, the professionalism you exhibited when dealing with other agents, and the time spent explaining the numerous documents to me.   

Nazzi is a very experienced and knowledgable realtor. She knows the area where she sells and is very good at pointing our good and bad issues and ideas as to what sells a home. I highly recommend her!
