"Buying a home in any time can be extremely challenging. Though in these times, it is even more so. It's crucial to partner with a real estate professional who knows their business inside and out, who has your back and who will steer you through the process to avoid pitfalls and issues. I found all of that in Nili Hudson. I interviewed numerous agents prior to choosing Nili. Her personality is extremely warm. She's also detail oriented, honest, and knowledgeable in her trade. She was great in making suggestions to make my offers more competitive. She was extremely communicative throughout the entire process. She had solid recommendations for knowledgeable inspectors to check my property and facilitated expediting all of those simultaneously. She was a fantastic partner in the process,"
"It's hard to even begin to describe how extraordinary Nili is. Let me start by saying that, in the madness that was the LA market in early 2021, Nili helped me to find and close on my dream home in a matter of about three months. The entire process was fast, seamless, efficient, and, dare I even say pleasurable and fun?! I went into it hearing stories of friends and acquaintances who likened the home buying process in 2020 / 2021 to a battlefield. My home buying journey couldn’t have been smoother, and I know it is almost entirely because I worked with Nili. I knew I wanted someone with deep knowledge of the LA market and a lot of experience. I also wanted an agent who didn't"
"Buying our first home in early 2021 was not a walk in the park from the covid restrictions to the very low inventory - thankfully we had Nili as our agent to help guide us through the very challenging market conditions. She was with us every step of the way and the path was full of twists and turns before we ultimately found our perfect home. After an exhausting competitive bid process and then falling out of escrow on a house due to issues with the seller - we were starting to lose hope that we would actually find a home to buy. I joke that Nili found our home on the "dark web" but she was actually able to use her extensive network to find out about a pocket-listed"
"To anyone considering working with Nili Hudson as a real estate professional, this will serve to verify that you can do so with complete confidence. We have worked with Nili since 1997 on several matters involving the purchase, sale and leasing of real estate, including the purchase of our multi-million dollar home in Santa Monica. Her knowledge of her field and her professional ethics and honesty are the highest. To say that we have been pleased by her representations is an understatement, She has always exhibited the highest level of professionalism, knowledge, proficiency and a tireless work ethic. For anyone that is looking for a Realtor, we can say with certainty that they would be extremely well served with Nili as their representative. Our transactions with Nili involved our purchase"
"I was a first-time buyer, and boy was I lucky to have been introduced to Nili. Nili has this wonderful combination of being unbelievably knowledgeable, insanely patient and kind and an incredibly hard and dedicated worker on behalf of her clients. She spent countless hours walking me through all of the steps along the way of this arduous process. It was a roller coaster ride with some steep highs and lows, and she was in with me every step of the way, sharing her thoughts so that I could be as informed as possible before making any decision. I had some pretty specific needs on the home and she always made me feel that there is no rush, that finding the right home may take some time. I am moving"
"As first-time buyers looking for a new home during a pandemic with a baby on the way, we were a little tentative about what to expect and how to navigate our next steps. Nili was there for us every step of the way. She never made us feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. She took the time to really get to know us and what was most important to us in our search. When we found the house of our dreams, she was quick to act on our behalf and we still talk about how seamless the process was from start to finish. Thank you, Nili!"
"Nili not only provided an exceptional level of professionalism, knowledge and support throughout the process of searching for and purchasing my first home in Woodland Hills, she helped in making important decisions at the highest level, and was exceptional at going above and beyond from start to finish at helping with the smallest of details. She quite honestly is a real estate professional that works from the heart. It is clear that she is in this line of work because it brings her great joy to partner people with the properties that will bring happiness and joy into their lives. She is competent in any location you ask her to work in and relieves the stress of searching for a property. She made me feel like I had a true"
"I worked with Nili in 2020 to find my personal home and I have to say the transaction was more than perfect. Nili was supportive and not pushy throughout the process, she made it clear to me that she was with me for as long as it took to find the perfect home and was flexible to match my schedule. The transaction happened very quick once we found it, she was excellent at negotiating and equally important she worked very well with the sellers agents and as a whole the transaction went beautifully with all parties happy with the end result. Post transaction Nili has been following up to ensure I think of all the little things such as gutter drainage and the fact that I have a one"
"We were new to the LA area and Nili was so helpful in giving us a feeling for our new home town, and helping us to find a house that we fell in love with. Her advice during negotiations was always spot on and she was very helpful during inspections. She has continued to assist with advice regarding repairs and remodeling. Great experience!"
"We had the pleasure of working with Nili to sell our current home and purchase our next home. Both transactions were complicated due to buyer and seller demands on dates, complex financial arrangements, and other factors, but Nili helped us navigate all the considerations and options available to us, to make the right decisions. We ended up with an incredible sale price, and with Nili's guidance, smartly outbid others on our purchase while still staying within our budget. An amazing feat! Thank you Nili for keeping us calm, grounded, and informed throughout the process! To anyone considering working with Nili, just know that she'll always have your best interests in mind, and will exhibit the utmost in professionalism and ethics while representing you. She's the best!"
"This is the 3rd time we have used Nili in the last 20 years. That does say something about a good client/agent relationship!!!! Nili always provides the highest level of professionalism and is the most supportive agent we have ever worked with. She guided us through each process with knowledge, guidance and patience. Always punctual and prepared. I give her 5 stars...*****"
" Nili recently helped us secure a home in the Mar Vista area. As new residents to LA, she guided us through multiple areas of town and ultimately found us our dream home and helped us close under asking price! Nili is a real estate vet. In almost every home we walked into, she knew the other agent getting insider info for us to come in as strong buyers. I'd highly suggest Nili to anyone looking for a home in the LA area. She's kind, knows her business well and will help negotiate a fair price. Once we bought the house, she was also extremely helpful in coordinating inspectors, contractors, etc. during escrow, which was a huge relief to us, given we couldn't take the time off work to deal"
"Purchasing a home of any size is an intimate process and when you begin you are placing your trust in someone who is a stranger. It was important to me as a single woman that I work with someone who not only listened but heard my needs. Nili is extraordinary!! She is gracious, patient, thorough and has a broad base knowledge of all the facets of putting a deal together and seeing it through to the end. She constantly keeps you informed and is also available for any question or concern you may have. Nili is the consummate professional with heart."
"There are some connections in this life that you just know are right from the start; and using Nili to help find/purchase my condo in Westwood is one of those. This whirlwind experience started out with Nili slowly and surely showing me what was out there in my price range; my taste, and desired location for several weeks until I closed escrow on a house I was selling and was ready to pull the plug on a purchase. Nili found me a gorgeous penthouse condo in westwood OFF MARKET/POCKET LISTING in a time of very low inventory; simply because she is very well connected and respected in this westside real estate market. It went like this: I saw the condo on a Friday afternoon, presented an offer on Saturday, and"
"We were compelled to write this review because we have been so impressed, and grateful for, Nili's service. Nili has helped us find 4 homes and this last one will be our last move for a long time. With her help we were able to find our dream home and navigate the escrow, and all that it entailed, with a tight deadline prior to our baby being born. We truly believe no one else would have found us our home and worked so hard for us. We've worked with other agents before but Nili is a class act and went above and beyond at all times. She was always available, always listened to our concerns and always responded. It's refreshing to be around someone who loves what they do, and Nili"
"We did not realize that selling a home didn't have to be a stressful experience until we worked with Nili. She is very knowledgeable, fast-acting, kind, and caring. Nili answered every question we had in detail, was always available for support, and helped us anticipate every step of the selling experience. Nili negotiated our sale masterfully, helped us maintain clear boundaries with the buyer, and took care of every detail. When we bought the house ten years ago, it felt like the blind leading the blind. But in Nili's hands, we felt secure, calm and at ease. Not to mention that the house sold within days, we got our asking price, plus a few extra perks. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Nili sold me my first house, she sold me my last, and will sell me my next. I won't go anywhere without her on my journey in Los Angeles. This seasoned professional helps you every step of the way with insights and advice. She is patient and methodical... helping you navigate the amazing process of choosing your home. She will tirelessly research, compare, discuss and strategize with you. You will not find a more passionate and pragmatic hand-holding champion for your prize."
"Nili, exceeded our expectations. She marketed our condo beautifully, generated a ton of interest and then negotiated on our behalf smartly. She kept us informed each step of the way and educated us when we needed it. I would recommend Nili highly, they don’t come any better!! Thank you Nili!"
"Because of my work, I’ve had to move in, out and around Los Angeles several times during the last decade. During that time, Nili helped me buy three houses and sell two, as well as helping me find homes to lease. Each time, she made the process as painless as possible. She understands my practical and aesthetic needs and always guides me in the right direction. Together we have bought, sold and rented in all kinds of markets and she consistently gets the job done. A year ago I found myself shopping for a home in a very difficult seller’s market and she found me the perfect place at exactly the right time. I’m very happy there and don’t anticipate moving again, but it’s nice to know if I ever"
"Nili helped us sell our house in Santa Monica. We live on the east coast and have had the same tenant in the house for the past 17 years. Nili educated us about the process, laid out our options at each point, and always emphasized that she would follow whichever option we selected. Her sale strategy was excellent, revealing her knowledge of the area and experience with the psychology of potential buyers. We had 6 offers within 5 days of the first open house. The house was in escrow less than 2 weeks after the listing went online. Nili was very considerate of our tenant, which was a priority for us, and she took care of many details which we could not see to because we were out of state."
"I am not easily impressed by most things or people and generally I don’t write reviews or buy into consumerism - period. Having said that, I am breaking those rules for good reason. Nili IS IMPRESSIVE. She is a professional who knows her stock and trade and it’s clear why she is successful. She guided us in terms of the price we should list our house for and told us what to expect. She was pitch perfect - we got more than we had hoped for and what she thought we would get. She knows the area, the market and the people. She is respectful, attentive to detail and has a genuine interest in her clients. She also has the patience and disposition of a saint. If I could leave"
"I worked with Nili to buy my first home...It was exactly what I wanted, a true (and major) fixer in Santa Monica. It was the least expensive home in the area at the time - and I would never have "won" the house without Nili. Beyond that, as a first-timer, she walked me through the home buying process - giving me the confidence to lock in and make the purchase. Most remarkably, the property had THREE all cash offers - almost guaranteeing that I would not get the house. But Nili worked with the sellers' agent to convince them I was the offer to take. She let them know I would follow through (unlike many all-cash offers) because I intended to fix it and live there - not tear it"
"Before my husband and I bought our first home, I had always thought that real estate agents made a killing on commissions. 3% of the sales or purchase price always seemed so high - was it worth it? After working with Nili, I would say that she is worth her weight in gold. If you are lucky enough to get to work with Nili, you will find her to be not only an amazing agent, but a wonderful person so full of integrity that you will also have a new friend. My husband and I were looking for a house for several months and we ended up with the house of our dreams. As we looked at various homes, Nili pointed out things I never would have thought about, all"
"I have to pat myself on the back for choosing Nili as our realtor. She was amazing: knowledgeable, competent, and understanding. She pushed for the best possible price and got it, and then proceeded to guide us through the process, putting our interests first, while maintaining a good working relationship with the buyer. Who knew there was so much to know about selling a home? This was such an easy process with Nili at helm. My husband and I highly recommend her, for buyers and sellers you can't do better"
"We have now had the pleasure of working with Nili on three real estate transactions: the purchase of a home, the sale of that home two years later, and the purchase of another home. Nili has superior skill in researching property values within the context of the market. For the purchase of our first house, she was thorough and complete in providing information regarding comps as well as “context” within which the value of a property near the beach could be evaluated. She used this information to provide comprehensive communication to us, but also in using it to negotiate a reasonable yet competitive price. She wielded her skills and her knowledge in an aggressive yet always pleasant manner, reacted very quickly to compete effectively with multiple offers, and we got"
"Nili tirelessly showed us MANY homes all over LA as we chose the perfect spot for our family. Not only does she have incredible professional experience with these areas but she was born and raised here and has, thus, lived, played and worked all over. This allows her to offer insights into the various areas that would be lost on a newer agent or one from out of town. When it came time to put in an offer and then close on our house her knowledge and guidance was indispensable. We absolutely love our new home but look forward to working with Nili again when the time comes for us to move once more. And we highly recommend Nili to anyone looking to buy a home."
"Nili is the absolute best. She's well informed, well connected, very experienced and most importantly trustworthy to negotiate on your behalf and be aligned with your interests (and not short-sighted to try to push a deal for her own benefit). And she's a tough, tough negotiator. We would use Nili over and over again (and have for two separate homes). She is so skilled and also a truly wonderful person. We were lucky to have Nili helping us with one of the most important decisions a person or family can make."
"I wanted to write you a quick note to sincerely thank you for the time and effort you put in to make this whole process happen. I know I would be lost if it wasn't for the professional and thoughtful manner you handle your client's business. I am truly grateful for coming into contact with you and look forward to a long and positive relationship."
"Her market knowledge, professionalism and negotiating skills are a great asset for anyone she represents. But what touched me the most is her relaxed human touch and caring during and after the transaction - a rare gift in today's market."
"You were terrific as our broker and we admire your experience, judgement, and work ethic. We hope we work with you again someday. As well, we will recommend you to anyone we know who needs residential real estate brokerage services."
"Nili has represented me on two purchases and one sale. She is professional; she is always well-prepared and well-versed in market conditions. And most importantly, she is never non-plussed or without a strategy when things get complicated or messy. I would not consider using anyone else for my residential real estate needs."
"Nili helped us buy our first home, a condo, four years ago. it was because of her care and professionalism that we decided to work again with her when buying our second home. She understood our need to sell our condo and buy the new home simultaneously. She worked tirelessly coordinating the endless details related to both the transactions. It was because of her attention to detail that we were able to close both the deals on time. Buying our house and selling our condominium was a breeze. We are thrilled to be in our new home and remain thankful for all her efforts."
"Nili has represented us on two separate transactions so far—once when we purchased our Westside condo in July 2007and again in March 2010 when we were relocating for work and needed to sell our condo quickly. We specifically chose to work with Nili again, because she is extremely knowledgeable about the LA market and she demonstrates the kind of professionalism and work ethic that is rare to find these days. We were worried about getting our condo sold in a down market, but with Nili’s guidance and market expertise, we had an accepted offer that we were happy with a mere NINE days after going live on the MLS (and we had multiple offers)!! She stayed on top of things up until the very end and communicated regularly with us"
"I was lucky to find Nili the first time I bought a home several years ago and have since had her represent me again as both a buyer and a seller. Her business ethics, market knowledge and ability to negotiate effectively on behalf of her clients put Nili in a class all her own. Not only will Nili help you find your dream-home, but she will make the process a pleasure. Nili is a great listener and a tireless advocate for her clients"
"My family and I have had the pleasure of working with Nili three times and each and every experience has been wonderful. She has an expert knowledge of every neighborhood in Los Angeles and that allows her to pin point the perfect home for your needs. Nili is extremely passionate about what she does. She always responded to any questions right away with a call, text or email and never left us hanging. Her passion helps make the complicated experience of buying or selling a home, fun and exciting."
"Amazing. We recently moved to LA from abroad and to find Nili was an absolute godsend. Her knowledge made us feel comfortable about the process at every step..And there are a lot of complicated steps! Her knowledge of the market and the area made the proess very comfortable but what made it special was that it was so personal. We felt as if she understood us and what we needed which is exactly what we needed. Incredibly professional and experienced but Oh yeah, she is also isa really really nice person....That counts for a lot"
"I have known NIli for around 4 years. She assisted my daughter in buying a townhouse in 2010 and recently assisted my husband and I in purchasing a townhouse. From the gecko Nili made us feel totally at ease with her personality, knowledge, professionalism, and accessibility. Real Estate is not just a "job" for Nili; she takes an extreme amount of pride in her work and consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to help us find the right place at the right price. She did this for my daughter as well. I can't speak highly enough of Nili; she will do everything in her power to make sure you find your "dream home"!!"
"I stumbled upon a house and figured I didn't need an agent. I'll just buy it. What's the big deal? I got to the open house. People were swarming. Came back for a second look. ALL THE SAME PEOPLE WERE THERE. Panic set in. Fortunately I had met Nili on a couple of occasions long ago and for some reason she popped into my head. I called her, asked her to look at the house and to tell me if I was crazy. After confirming that I probably was, in fact, crazy and had been for quite some time......she agreed it was a great house for me and assured me that if I wanted it, she would get it for me. She navigated through a very competitive bidding situation with"
"My wife and I have worked with Nili for over 20 years.We have done two transactions (1 purchase and 1 sale) over that period of time and are working on a third currently. I cannot say enough about Nili’s skills in regards to follow up, negotiations,and overall professionalism. If there is a benchmark of what a a truly great real estate Broker should be, it is Nili Hudson. If you are fortunate enough to work with Nili you will do yourself and your family a great favor and be provided the best possible real estate representation.The utmost possible financial outcome will come as a result. If you want the best there is, hire Nili Hudson."
"I recently purchased a 8 unit apartment building in West Hollywood for
"My little family recently purchased a house in Woodland Hills and Nili was our agent. We were first time buyers, and she simply made it happen by helping us step by step through the process, she recommended the best mortgage broker and stayed in contact with the seller's agent every day till she got us the house of our dreams. Moreover, she watched our backs by putting all the right things in our contract, and even re-negotiated with the seller after escrow to get us an even better deal than we've agreed on. I would trust her blindly with buying or selling any property for me in the future."
"Awesome realtor. knows her business forward and back. very good listener and patient with clients. very thorough and diligent. very responsive around the clock. very attentive and fastidious. highest recommendation."
"I would highly recommend Nili Hudson to anyone who is even considering a new home. She is wealth of knowledge in real estate and the overall LA market. Her charming personality makes it pleasure working together and her level of client dedication will exceed expectation. She is incredibly passionate about her work and has a clear understanding of her client's needs"
"Nili is without question the most professional realtor I've ever had the pleasure of working with. We first met Nili during a stressful cross country move, she treated our hunt for a rental home with the same level of diligence and importance as she would the purchase of a m home. Unlike many realtors she fosters a genuine relationship with all her clients (home owners or tenants) which will ensure you continue to work with her until you find your perfect home. I've referred her to numerous friends who have all had the same wonderful experience. A true professional."
