I would like to highly recommend Crystal Huffman as a Realtor.

She was able to help my husband and I sell our home in the East Contra Costa area and buy a new home in Tuolumne County. Crystal was able to stage our home beautifully. We received multiple offers all within a short period of time and sell quickly. Crystal listens to the needs and concerns of her clients. If we had a question she would always get back to us promptly. She is very personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an experienced and reliable Realtor.

Heather Dodson

Nicole was great throughout the entire process of selling our house.

She was very professional and went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor. She communicated every step of the process so we were always aware as to what was happening. I appreciate the care she took to make this process easy for us.

Danielle Hughie

"Knowledge of the area and community!

Very professional and attentive to our needs! Excellent service and would definitely recommend him to my Family and Friends!"

Francis & Jackie

I cannot thank Michelle enough for helping me negotiate my client's potential division of real assets in a lengthy and contentious dissolution.

Although I mentioned it was not a rush, she was very prompt in her response when I requested of her to gather information on the parties' community property asset so we can calculate an estimated amount of proceeds that may be up for division at settlement. Michelle was also very knowledgeable about what I was reading and pointed out what to look for in order to determine a potential value. I will no doubt highly recommend Michelle as their agent when the parties decide to list their home for sale.

Jennifer A. Navalle

Nicole Pitts of NextHome is an excellent real estate professional.

Anyone would be happy to work with her. She does an excellent job!!!!! I give her a five star rating because she earned every star!!!!!!! Thank you, Nicole!!! You're the best!

Robin Houdashell

Our family worked with Nicole to list our first home and purchase our new home.

We highly recommend Nicole and plan to work with her should we ever be in the market to list or buy a home again. She took the stress out of listing, working showings around our schedule (me working from home, and having a toddler) to helping us select the best offer! Nicole is extremely passionate about finding her clients the perfect space. Additionally, was super flexible with showings(early and late) and always answered any questions we had making us feel comfortable with the choices made throughout the entire process. We are so happy we had the opportunity to work with her!

Marquelle Doyle

Joe is a true professional, who puts his clients first!

Was timely, due diligent, and helpful through the entire process. Words can’t describe how considerate and flexible he was to work with me and my schedule. One of the most personable individuals I’ve met in life, I would recommend him to anyone!


Jenifer Wasso was referred to me by another realtor from a different area.

The process of working with Jennifer was simple and easy. She was always on top of things, she knew what she was doing. She was professional, courteous, truthful, and trustworthy. She handled the negotiations well, and gave the right advice. She was very helpful during the process of negotiating and communicating with my lender. She was respectful and caring and not rushing. And most of all, she continued support after closing, making sure we were not missing anything. I would definitely use her services again and again. I have suggested her to my extended family and would suggest her for all of you who are looking to get the right property for your loved ones. God bless

Ashraf Awadalla (Owner )

This is the second home I have sold with Nicole.

The first was an excellent experience the second was even better. The second home sale was further complicated by our moving 1/2 way around the world while the house was still for sale. Nicole dealt with all the issues seamlessly including dealing with the time difference and a third party with authority to act on our behalf. My only regret is Nicole is not familiar enough with my current real estate market to fly out and help us purchase a new house here.

Mark Schwartz

Thank you, Anthony.

You are a consummate professional and we have appreciated your expertise and professional throughout some difficult times with selling our our rentals!

Nancie B.

Anthony was great to work with from start to finish!

The photos and description of our house was perfect! Very communicative and responsive! Top notch! Would recommend his services to anyone! We have used him to sell two houses.

Vick Mackey

I cannot believe how easy Nicole made selling my home.

The situation was a little outside of the normal and Nicole handled all that was thrown at her with incredible efficiency. I have worked with real estate agents through my business for over 30 years and I have never seen an agent do as much to support her client as Nicole. 5 Stars is a joke for a rating can I give a galaxy?

Mark Schwartz

Anthony was amazing to work with.

He was great with communicating and very efficient. He took the stress out of this entire process and made it an enjoyable experience. We have used him for both buying and now selling our homes and can’t recommend him enough, he’s truly the best!

Jason & Heather

Anthony helped us get our first home in 2018.

He was the perfect relator for my wife and I and was beyond patient with the both of us. In June 2021, we decided that we wanted to sell our home, move to a different area and make some money in doing so. My wife and I both agreed that we should speak some other realtors first, just to see what was out there. After throughly looking into every single realtor we spoke with, we both agreed that Anthony, again, was the right person for us. He has the experience, knowledge and attitude that makes you feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Anthony Pigati for you home buying/ selling needs.

Denise Hook (Retired)

Upon our first meeting, I was impressed by Jenifer’s professionalism.

She had prepared a portfolio of my home, current value and market trends. From this I was able to understand what my home was valued and what I would list it for. Jenifer had secured a professional photographer who did an excellent job photographing my home and a video. My home sold in four days! Jenifer made herself available at all times. She kept me informed throughout the whole process. She is knowledgeable and has excellent customer service. I would definitely recommend her, she is an amazing person, efficient, knowledgeable and very professional.

Sandra J Ferreira

Anthony Pigati is an outstanding realtor who made our dream home purchase possible.

His dedication and commitment were evident throughout the process. Always prioritizing our best interests, Anthony was consistently accessible, reassuring, and diligently worked behind the scenes with everyone involved in the sale. Thanks to his expertise, we now happily reside in our custom house. Highly recommend Anthony for his professionalism and exceptional service.

Anthony Derendinger

We totally found Nicole on a fluke!

She was showing an open house for another realtor that could not make it. With everything shut down due to COVID, we were just happy to be able to attend an open house and stumbled upon this one. Nicole was awesome and the showing was great. Fast forward a couple weeks later, with our realtor at the time, we were still being outbid left and right. We spent the first half of 2021 bidding way over asking on homes and not even coming close. We needed change and both agreed that Nicole was awesome and that we should reach out and give her a try. The only problem was that we did not have her contact info. We had a flyer from the open house, but it was for the selling realtor. Well... we contacted the realtor and sure enough she gave us Nicole's info. We reached out to Nicole June 23 and, I kid you not, the very next day someone accepted our offer. The stars must have aligned or something because to this day we are still in awe of how everything fell into place. Nicole went way above and beyond with every step of closing. Anything we needed at all she was one step ahead of us. The communication was amazing and she was always available at the drop of a dime. Even after we closed and started moving in, she continued to check in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly. There was even a day that she came by before showing a house to a client. We were pulling up carpet and flooring and Nicole being Nicole, started helping. She was walking out tons of filthy carpet and padding ,with no care in the world, and dumping it in the trailer out front that YES, she provided for us! We can't put into words how blessed we are for finding Nicole. She's everything a realtor can and should be and then some. We're in our FOREVER home because of her. We'd give her 10 stars if we could!!!

Jenifer came as a recommendation from my prior realtor, who up and moved out of the state.

Thankfully he had someone local to work with and introduced me to Jenifer. It took a long time because of my situation to really get things rolling but she was patient and worked with me. Once the sale became more of a reality, she was with me every step of the way. Circumstances were not typical but the home sale was. She was upfront and honest on where the house (September 2022) was priced given the housing market. I had three expectations going into this partnership. First, a quick sale, second, a short close, third, at or above purchase price. The house went on the market on Friday, October 14 and we had two offers before Sunday, the second one, which was accepted. We closed on November 7 after the paperwork was done and ended up at purchase price. I could not be happier with her attentiveness to my sale. She was there EVERY STEP of the way, which made this sale very easy. She gave me her honest opinion when it came to the condition of the house and what her expectations were. The listing was phenomenal, the images, drone footage and post production additions were amazing! The house looked so good I would have considered buying it again. So thank you very much Jenifer for all your work, effort and tome to make this sale a reality. In my eyes, you were amazing at what you did. I will highly recommend you to my friends looking to list their house. Thank you for everything!

Stephen Toumi

Nicole was absolutely amazing!

Very responsive, communicative, knowledgeable, friendly and GREAT at her job. 100% would recommend 100x over. If we are ever looking to purchase another property, we would absolutely go with Nicole again. Thank you so much!

djoffcl4 (Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2023 in Millsmont, Oakland CA)

Nicole is an amazing agent.

She goes way above & beyond for her clients. I can’t thank her enough for all the extra help she gave us in trying to prepare the house for sale. We have sold several homes and never had an agent who did so much! I wholeheartedly recommend Nicole! She works so hard for her clients. Her knowledge of the market, rates, real estate rules is impeccable and she will do her best to get you the biggest profit possible! She also helped us with our new purchase and again got us the best deal on a new build home! She is there every step of the way thru the selling & buying process and makes sure she explains every step. You couldn’t ask for a more reputable & professional agent!!! Thank you Nicole!

Kathy Hicks

We lost our father in 2021.

We had to make the decision to sell our family home. That being very difficult we hired Nicole Pitts. Nicole not only showed respect and compassion, she was amazing and handled every situation that arose. Her persistence and dedication is something you don’t see very often. I highly recommend Nicole for anyone buying or selling a house. I would hire Nicole again for any real estate business. Thank you Bertha Madrigal-Graves

Bertha Madrigal-Graves

We couldn’t have ask for a better realtor!

Nicole was by our side from start to beginning. She answered all of our questions and was always reachable whenever we needed her. We can’t thank her enough for all of her help and perseverance! You’re the best Nicole!

Jennifer and Don

"Anthony was one of the most knowledgeable, professional, straightforward real estate professionals we’ve ever dealt with!

He was there every step of the way, from selling our house to buying our new home! You could not ask for better service! Thank you Anthony for everything!!!"

Eric (Buyer & Seller)

Based on my personal experience with Nicole, I've recommended her to my dearest friend in the market for a home.

Needless to say, my friend is as impressed as I am. Nicole stood in my corner the entire home buying experience. She shared my frustrations, and rejoiced with me at closing. I honestly would not have closed and moved into my "forever" home without Nicole... seriously! I would not consider anyone other than Nicole for my future investment home purchases. I can confidently say anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and hard working realtor will be beyond satisfied with Nicole's services.

Brenda Grant (Sheriff's Aide)

I had the pleasure of working with Joe on the sale of my parents home in Antioch.

It was great seeing Joe again as he helped my parents buy this home many years ago. He is a great realtor with a wealth of experience and knowledge of Antioch and surrounding markets! I could not be more pleased, from start to finish, with the ease of my real estate transaction. Joe is an effective communicator who always responded in a timely professional manner. He is a good listener and collaborative in nature. I would highly recommend Joe for any of your real estate needs!

Deena Z

Nicole did an outstanding job selling our home.

She is very personable, professional and knowledgeable. She worked tirelessly to make the selling experience as seamless as possible, always keeping in mind our family, their well being and the challenges and timelines of moving out of state. We were very fortunate to have Nicole on our side. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

Christina Connor

"Anthony was amazing.

He is very knowledgable and honestly knows his passion. He was readily available to show us so many potential houses in the area we requested. His grace & experience showed t’/o the whole process. He made the experience one to remember. Always had our back and was very straightforward. He is authentic and real. I recommend Anthony without a doubt... thank u again Anthony. You made our experience less stressful and accommodating to our daily schedules. Kudus Anthony!!! Much appreciated..."

Denise (Buyer and Seller )

"We have used Anthony for our last 3 real estate transactions.

He is always very responsive and an excellent negotiator. He explains the process thoroughly. We highly recommend Anthony, he’s the best!"

GK Shive (Happy Client)

"Anthony listed our home a few months ago when the market was changing quickly from a sellers market into another direction that made things much more difficult for sellers.

He made sure our home stood out above the others by using professionally created photos,video as well as drone footage. In our case we ended up with a buyer in a very short time after following Anthony's advise. To say the transaction was difficult to pull off would be an understatement....Several contingencies complicating the process. Listing to sale was 2 months total period. He also found us a wonderful new place to call home. If you want the best then give Anthony a call!"

Nick & Toy (Seller - Buyer)

"Communication is key and he kept me informed of every aspect of the transaction before it happened.

Being that COVID-19 is a factor right now, he made everything safe and convenient when it came to setting up showings by appointment, which was extremely appreciated considering my fiancé is 4 months pregnant, we have 3 dogs, and we were still living in our home. I couldn’t imagine listing with another agent. He made himself so available to answer all my questions and concerns."

Adam S. (Seller)

Nicole is amazing.

She helped us sell our home of 25 years and did an exceptional job. She is professional, very knowledgeable, knows how to negotiate for the best benefit of her clients and goes way above and beyond in her levels of service to provide the best value and benefit to her clients. Nicole also sold my Mother's home of nearly 40 years and provided the same expert service. She is simply AMAZING and I would not hestitate to recommend her to anyone! If you want to sell your home and want high levels of professionalism and service above and beyond you should work with Nicole.

Kelly R Calhoun

Lindsay M.

My wife and I would highly recommend Jen for any sale/purchase of a home.

Jen was amazing. We definitely had a partner in our journey to move towns. She was compassionate and caring for our family and guided us every step of the way. She went above and beyond with how she handled a difficult sell.

Pete Kemme

Many years ago Tommy and I took a chance on a young “newbie” realtor, Anthony Pigati to help us find and purchase our first home.

Forward 20 years later, he assisted us in selling my parents home under some difficult circumstances. Today, he presented my daughter and son-in-law with the keys to their first home! Congratulations to them! And thank you Anthony for your commitment! I can fully attest to his integrity, honesty and commitment to serving his clients in meeting the needs of both purchasing and selling homes and always going above and beyond! I will forever be grateful and will always recommend Anthony and the services he provides! Thanks again Anthony for everything you have done for 3 generations of our family!

Tammy & Tommy Sizemore

"Excelent service and very knowledgeable on the current market trends and the realestate industry.

My situatioin was unique as I was undecided on what to do because of a recent separation and Anthony was patient, understanding during this time of uncertainty. Thanks for spending the time needed to secure the home I now have. Life is better since you have been my agent. happy holidaysand come over for a drink soon. Alan"

Alan Cezar (Home Buyer)

"Being older adults, we have dealt with a few real estate agents by now —so we have some comparative experience to fall back on and we can enthusiastically say that Anthony Pigati is a superb, top-notch realtor.

We are so thankful for his assistance and expertise in helping us find and process buying our new home. What sets him apart from the many that we have done business with, is his real estate knowledge, his familiarity with the area in which he serves, his accessibility throughout the process, and most of all - his intuitive ability to listen to his clients and help them find the kind of house that they are searching for. Buying a house can be a very stressful experience, and Anthony’s good nature and warm personality was a therapeutic plus. In other words, on top of everything — he’s a real nice guy. Doing business with him was a 5-star experience. Thank you, Anthony! "

Stephen & Mona (Happy Buyers!)

"We feel so incredibly lucky to have found Anthony.

We live four hours away from the area where we wanted to buy a house which added some stress to the search for a new home. We had a short amount of time to find our new home and Anthony was extremely efficient in helping us see all the homes that fit our criteria. The first meeting with Anthony, he had a booklet prepared for us that had every listing with pictures and information about each house that we wanted to see. Once we decided on our home, Anthony made the whole escrow process move along with as little stress as possible. Anthony also provided us with contact information for all the Tradesmen we needed to do some updating and repairs on our new home. Anthony responded immediately to every email, text and phone call. I have never had the quality of service that I received from Anthony. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anthony to anyone who is in search of a Realtor.“

Herman Family

Anthony was AMAZING!

He was so knowledgeable with every aspect of selling our father's home! He made the process so easy!!! Thank you! ??

Corrin M.




Since day one, Nicole has been super professional, responsive and friendly.

She was patient with us when it came to choosing our right home. Due to us not knowing the exact area we would like to buy, she was willing to travel to different cities to show us house viewings. We are grateful for her honesty, dedication and going above and beyond our expectations.

Jason N

"With Anthony as our agent, my husband and I were able to have a complete sense of calm throughout the entirety of the buying/selling process.

He's been doing this a long time, and it shows. And this matters more than a lot of buyers may realize. If you find a home that sweeps you off your feet, your "soulmate home", and you don't have a wise, experienced, socially intelligent agent representing you, that house you love is going to break your heart and find a different buyer. But Anthony knows how to make things happen. He's just skilled like that. And it helps that he truly cares that you get the home (or the buyers for YOUR home) that you are seeking after. I swear, nobody cares these days.. But working with Anthony will be refreshing experience for you, restoring your faith in humanity. Besides the huge sigh of relief you'll have with him as your agent, he's just a pleasure to work with, a very cool guy all around-- not pushy, not rude, very considerate and conscientious, honest, funny, hardworking, and just plain enjoyable. There's really no need to look further -- you found your guy! ??"

K & A

Look no further for the best agent for your sale or purchase.

We have used Sheri several times and will continue to do so. She is effecient, knowledgeable, experienced and has a pleasant, easy to work with personality! She is always on top of things and is diligent in keeping the process moving forward to avoid delays. Without hessitation, I highly recommend her! You can confidently expect the best from her partnership with your endeavor!

Lynda Saito

TL;DR: Nicole is a fantastic real estate agent and a wonderful human being.

You would be wise to trust her. To understand the value of Nicole representing your real estate interest I have to tell you how I met Nicole. I just finished working with my third realtor as a buyer’s agent and started to work directly with selling agents myself. I was not particularly enjoying the DIY experience as most selling agents would brush me off or tell me to go get a realtor. The best was when they assigned me a realtor! Nicole was actually selling a house I was interested in and she responded professionally and met me at the house the same day. She represented the house well, but that house ended up not being what I was looking for. I tried a few more times representing myself and eventually decided to reach back out to Nicole to see if she would be willing to be my buyers agent. Best decision I made in my house buying journey! Nicole worked hard by keeping on top of the other agents and sometimes even me when my work took my attention away from my dream of home ownership. Even though the beginning of my home buying journey was 6 months of frustration, Nicole made the last two months a great and successful experience.

Edward Gilbert (Project Manager)

Having her walk thru each step of the process with us made it such a pleasant experience.

Highly recommended!

Linda and Mike Magann

"Anthony is, without a doubt, the best realtor we have worked with.

Our family initially retained him to sell our father’s property after his passing and we have now used him four times over the years. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and very responsive to any and all questions we had. He repeatedly went the extra mile to make the process go smoothly. Our family would highly recommend him."

Rosemary B.

Not only is Crystal a long time friend but an amazing realtor.

We have had the pleasure of working with her on the sale of one home and the relocation and buying of another. She does her research and makes the buying and selling process as easy going as possible. She is very quick with responses and gets the job done! We highly recommend Crystal!


Michelle is an exceptionally talented agent whose unwavering dedication and remarkable interpersonal skills consistently leave a lasting and positive impact on everyone fortunate enough to work with her.

She gets the job done well and fast!
