Veronica Martish

There are no words to describe what we feel inside.

Nil is a house-hunting whiz and an all-around great person. She found us our dream rental in 2 days!!! This is after we desperately searched for a rental over 3 months with little to no hope of finding a descent place to move our household from a different state to NC. Nil is very attentive to details and she took into account our constraints and did a careful search at record speed. We needed a carpet-free property in a family-friendly neighborhood within our budget. Nil found us multiple rentals that met all of our criteria and even more. She is tech savvy and she toured several houses on FaceTime, eliminating the need for us to come to the area. That we have signed our lease this morning is because Nil was a responsive and meticulous realtor. We look forward to working with her next year to purchase our dream house this time. We have no doubt that we will be in good hands with a true expert and a kind person who makes us feel we are already home.

"Great person to work with and I will not look for another agent next time!

"It was fun working with you buying our first home. Thanks for being with us when we needed. Your comforting approach made this experience less tiring for us and we enjoy our new home very much. Let's keep in touch..." "Nil did an exceptional work during my last home buying experience. Her calming personality and smiling face helped us go through tough times during the process. She is reliable and caring with detailed knowledge on the subject."

Hasan & Ozlem Cete

We are new in USA and have no idea about the mortgage.

Nil helped us a lot. In every stage we communicated with her and she was very nice always. I will recommend her to all of my friends, for sure. We appreciated her energy, kindness and support always.

Neslihan Gul

Nil is an amazing professional who isn’t just passionate about her work, but is also passionate about the well-being of her clients.

In fact, she goes above in beyond to ensure her client’s satisfaction. Nil is thoughtful and thorough. As a first time home buyer, she walked me through every step with patience and grace. She made my home buying process seamless. Nil has become my realtor of choice. I recommend her to everyone who is looking to move to or within the Triangle.

DUAL AGENCY - "Nil is very conscientious to details, she was genuine and worked beyond our expectations to make this happen.

Thank you!"

Patrick & Tolison Boyle - Buyers

DUAL AGENCY - "Nil should be the standard against which all other real estate agents are measured.

She is ethical, honest, professional, and most importantly, knowledgeable. Working with Nil feels like working with a trusted friend. Buying or selling a home is a stressful task- there is just so much to consider. Nil makes it an easy, pleasurable experience rather than a confusing, anxiety-inducing one. Her motivation and enthusiasm are contagious! She went above and beyond in getting our house sold, using creative methods to attract potential buyers. I would recommend Nil whole heartedly to anyone buying or selling a home".


"The most professional, friendly and highly effective agent I have ever worked with.

Nil provided total solution by working for the client truly and very dedicatedly in taking care of every need. Including picking up mails, taking care of the house at the time you were out, negotiating with the contractors for a better deal, continuously providing feedback on the showings, followed up with the agents and prospective buyers for feedback, tried her best to keep the listing price and bring the right value for selling, clearly stayed on top of any issues and communicated effectively, worked with relocation are some of the great service Nil had rendered in this more than a year long process of selling. Nil has developed a great relationship with the entire family and is very well regarded by every one of my family members. Sukanya, my wife, had a great partner in Nil during the entire staging, scheduling and showing process. You can count on Nil to help you in every stage of the selling process. Nil stayed persistently optimistic during the long selling process and gave all her best in making the sale happen. Nil was available at anytime from very early in the morning till late evening 11PM all days. She was even made herself available during her vacation and that too while away from USA. You can always reach her via, email, text, phone or any other way including face book. Nil is naturally very customer centric and has demonstrated very high professional abilities in providing exceptional client services in the entire sales process. In fact I had initially engaged Nil as my agent for buying an investment property. I was so impressed with her abilities and market knowledge. You need an agent who can be an advisor when you are new to the area and location. Nil can provide great insight on market, trends and pricing. I never had hesitation to engage her when I had to put my house on the market. Also because of her service and the relationship I went above and beyond to recommend her as listing agent at the time when the relocation company was involved in helping my home sale process. Keller Williams was not on the list of preferred agent but now Nil through her great services earned the respect of everyone and had registered Keller Williams with the relocation company that was involved in dealing with the sale of my home. If anyone is looking to buy or sell their properties and looking for an who can provide total solution to the utmost satisfaction then I guarantee Nil can provide the best in class service. I had explained in detail in the survey on her engagement in every bit of the sale process. Truly a delightful person to work with. This is a difficult market, especially if you are selling, and you need the right agent to represent and Nil is unquestionably the right representative for you. Best Regards, Venkat & Sukanya Narayanan

Venkat & Sukanya Narayanan

Nil is AMAZING to work with!

Nil sold my townhouse in Apex in 9 days!!!! As for buying a new home, she listened to our needs and wants and absolutely delivered. She negotiated with the builder so I didn’t have to. From tracking down the builder, finding us a lot to build on, picking out fixtures and colors, to helping us negotiate with the contractor to store our storage unit on site before move in! She fought for us every single step of the way and we are so grateful. We couldn’t have done it without her expertise and knowledge! Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts!!! We will absolutely be using her realtor expertise in our next move!

LinkedIn: "We have sold and bought our houses with Nil Varinca.

She is a great person to work with. I recommend her everybody who I know in house market to buy or sell. She was equally great for both areas. It was pleasure to work with her."

Zeynep Akyil

I was so impressed with her availability to work with us during the hours and days that we needed her there for us.

She is very kindhearted and had our best interests at heart no matter what the scenario, even if it was only $100 at stake! She sincerely listened to what we want and was amazing with our family. We consider Nil a friend now and I think that is the best compliment we could give her. We strongly recommend her to anyone that will listen.

Kevin & Nicole Ensinger

Saved From Foreclosure - "You really did a tremendous job selling Jeanie's house.

I am so thankful that you were the one that stood out to me as I was looking for someone for her. You truly do give all of yourself to your clients, that is rare to find anymore. If I know of anyone else who decides to sell or is looking to buy, I will give them your name with the utmost confidence."

Gina Hoosier - Loss Mitigation Manager

Nil is a skilled real estate professional who is well organized and knows her marketplace very well.

She is able to understand the neighborhoods, pricing nuances and potential target buyers for a property and brings the facts and figures to support it. Punctual, well organized and knowledgeable about your market."

. We are very happy to work with her and glad to know her.. She helped a lot to our dream come through..


"Your expertise made buying our new home an experience to remember.

I do not know what I would have done without you being there by my side. You are someone who is knowledgeable and dependable. You were there when I needed you, and there to tie up the loose ends. Buying our new home could not have been possible without you. Thank you for making our dreams come true! I will forever recommend you to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home. You are the best!!!"

Eda Varinca

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Nil, who is an excellent realtor.

Nil was super easy to communicate with, she thoroughly explained each step of the selling process to us. She was also quick to respond to any issues/questions. Nil did an excellent job of listening to all our concerns and made every effort to alleviate any stress affiliated with the selling of our home. She did excellent job helping stage our homes and also brought her professional team to take amazing pictures. She was an effective negotiator and ensured that each task remained on schedule in order to meet the closing date. We highly recommend her as an agent and would absolutely contact her first regarding any future real estate sales or purchases.

Sandeep Sharma

"We really enjoyed our experience with Nil.

We felt that she listened and respected our needs and helped us to find exactly what we were looking for. We enjoyed that she has a great attention to detail with each home, quickly being able to point out things that needed to be fixed or items that were not aligning with the selling point. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. We would, without hesitation, recommend her to anyone buying or selling and home and would certainly use her again if we were to be back in the market. Thanks Nil!" – (SOLD Their Home in 2015!)

Renee & Leigh MacNeil

"Nil has been with us throughout our long home buying process.

She has been very open, informative, helpful and last but not least very patient. She was able to provide invaluable insight and recommendations which helped a lot while making our decision. We love our new home!"

Ekrem & Oznur Hatip

“I was introduced to Nil through a previous client who referred a cousin to both Nil and me.

Nil has been a top-quality Realtor throughout the entire transaction! My hats off to her professionalism and strong work ethic!”

Megan Jurgens

I have hired Nil to sell my house in Chapel Hill.

She values her work as she put herself in the situation as if she is doing this for herself. She ıs so personable to work with and you feel this closeness. As a result, she tries to find all the possible opportunities and solutions. The customer is first in her work. Never late to her appointments. Provides information that she searched for marketing and design a plan to be successful. Being punctual and expected are great. I would hire her again and recommend her work to my friends.”

Demet Sag, PhD

"Nil found us a great home!

I met Nil over a year ago; however, I was not ready to purchase a house at the time. She kept in contact with my husband and me and sent us email updates for houses that had come on the market. There was never any pressure to buy. When we were ready, we contacted Nil and she started us on the journey to home buying. She was very understanding to our needs and was able to locate houses in the price range and areas of interest. I believe that Nil went above and beyond to find us the perfect house. I would definitely recommend Nil to anyone who wants to make the move to home buying. Nil did not only find us a house to live in but a place we both can call Home! Thanks, Nil!"

Angela And Craig Cerveny

We had worked with 2 other realtor before Nil and I can honestly say she was amazing to work with.

She guided us on the house we liked and also helped us about the details before putting offer. However, after our offer got approved she helped three times more during the closing and inspection times. This was our first house and she educated us with a kind and friendly mood. I love my house and I want to live many years in that house but if I would be in the market again I would definitely seek for her help and I will recommend her to my friends and family. Because she is our family now!!! We love you Nil

Sahin Tosun

"I referred a client to Nil because the client was moving to the Raleigh area from Charlotte.

She was ultra professional and took very good care of my clients, despite the difficulty in finding them what they wanted. She came through with a "Win-Win" for all concerned and I will gladly refer others to her again. She has a wonderful personality and gets the job done! She's a Realtor you can rely on."

Lynne, KW Charlotte Agent

I just want to thank Nil so much for everything you have done in helping get the house sold.

You went way above and beyond and made the experience much better than it would have otherwise been. You worked very hard for us and I am very appreciative of everything you've done. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know that is in the market. Thank you so much."

Candice Hollis

“Nil works hard for clients and listens to what they want.

She makes their priorities, her priorities. She's a joy to work with!”

Dina Falco White Anderson/Vanguard Homes

We worked with two real estate agents before Nil.

Therefore, I can tell you how great it is to work with Nil, who listened and worked for your best benefit. She is very efficient and has a super charming personality. And she can fight for you when there is a situation. Her knowledge on construction business is a great asset and really helps our purchase. Very efficient, great negotiation skill, follow through and even think ahead of us. I would totally recommend her to all our friends as an agent and a friend".

Yuching & Ling-Chieh

"Nil Basu, Thank you for all your hard work in getting my townhouse sold.

We worked great together as a team. I appreciate your attention to detail and keeping me informed. You made my move less stressful. I am excited as I close the door today and open a new door to my future - Thanks again for helping me through this and making the transition go so smoothly. God Bless You"

Jeanie Jones

"Nil Basu is an extremely organized, punctual, courteous, and always easily reachable; very knowledgeable about the local market and its dynamics.

An ideal seller’s agent - we truly felt our best interest was Nil’s priority. She had many important timely suggestions and showed excellent ability to react to an unpredictable market. As people we know get into the market, we would not hesitate to give Nil the highest recommendation."

Goran & Liisa Bozinovic

"Nil was very detail oriented and helped us find our dream home.

She was there every step of the way and made sure that everything went smoothly down to the last detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home”

Hakan & Michelle Serger

Nil is very knowledgeable about the housing market and was able to answer all of our questions sufficiently.

As a first time homebuyer Nil helped us understand the process of purchasing a home. I was not familiar with the process and a actually little nervous. She knew what we were looking for and all the little details that we want. She was there every step of the way, ensuring my family’s needs were met with our brand new home.

Vildan O.

“Nil is a wonderful real estate agent.

She is always looking out for her client and looking for the best deals. I would highly recommend her to list or buy a home for a client.”

Pat Rentz

"The sellers agent ended up helping us out.

The good agent came from Keller Williams Realty Cary. Give them a try. ~ Ask for Nil!" Diane Winrich (Packer Fan – Was the Buyer on Listing 2007!) Again In 2014 SOLD this home Two Times!

Mr & Mrs. Winrich

"I was actually surprised at what a relatively painless process this turned out to be.

Again, I think this had a lot to do with our good fortune in finding a great agent. You did an excellent job all around in finding our 1st home. This is especially true given that we changed our criteria several times during the process. As a first-time homebuyer, Nil was a blessing. She was never at a loss for time to assess our needs and find the perfect home."

Jerry Campbell & Ting Li

"Nil took such wonderful care of my fiancé and I when we were buying our first home recently.

Even before we had moved Nil was already on top of things, finding listings for us and learning more about what we were looking for. Once we moved, she was eager to set up an introductory meeting with us and we immediately felt comfortable working with her, knowing she was on our side and was going to take care of us. Three days later we met with her on a Saturday morning to go look at some properties. She took a very objective approach, indicating details she noticed about the house, but always allowing us to make the final decision to move on to the next property. When we finally found a property, we were interested in, Nil again pointed out the details and quality of the construction. She guided us through the entire process, and we had no hesitation when we made our offer, knowing that Nil was taking care of us and wasn’t going to let us end up in the wrong home. Her encouraging words and enthusiasm from searching all the way to closing made this an easy and enjoyable process. She also negotiated a great price for us! Thanks Nil!"

Chris And Meg Williams

Working with Nil was wonderful-five stars!

She was always very professional and available for any questions. She made our buying experience much more pleasant and met a touch deadline to close! I would highly recommend her.

Richard Putz

"The process of buying a home can be a stressful one, especially if it is your first home, and you have to buy the home from across the country.

After that first phone call with Nil, we knew we were in good hands. She took us on and stood by us through the whole process, showing us every option available to us. Anytime things got a little crazy she was right there with a solution, and it always ended up on track. She introduced us to an amazing team, and if it were not for Nil and the team, I do not think my husband and I would be saying we have a home that is ours. Nil is a true blessing and more than we ever expected. The moment we stepped off the plane in North Carolina, she was right there, making us feel right at home. She could have just shown us some houses and had it said and done, but that is not Nil. She took us in, helped us find a home, scheduled inspections and meetings, and showed us around our new hometown! All of this in a matter of 3 days! She was right by our side from the beginning to the end. We really felt as though we found more than a realtor in Nil. She was there for us in every way, sought out our needs, and always made us feel as if we were a priority. We are now new residents of the triangle area, and we don’t know many people, but one thing is for sure, if we come across anyone who needs a realtor, without a doubt, my recommendation for Nil would be given. Plus, no matter where my husband’s job take us, I really don’t think we could ever find a realtor to compare to Nil".

Lori & Douglas Wenner

Nil was absolutely fantastic.

She helped us find someone to make minor repairs to our home. Help stage our home. Photos and advertising was on point. She responded to our concerns and questions.

Kym Putz

Nil was really helpful and we appreciate her hardworking to get us the house of our dreams.

If I were to buy another house I’d still choose to work with her because I know she will still be able to work with her best capacity. I definitely recommend working with her she’s amazing at her work and as a person as well. We’re so glad to work with you and thank you for being patient and helping us out in this journey again.


Buying a house is a big step in life and even more so when you are in a state you are not familiar with.

Nil listened to what we were looking for in a house and sent us houses that fit our ideal home. We flew down on Memorial Day weekend and she took all day Saturday to look at about a dozen homes with us. She listened to our feedback on each house so we could find the ideal house and we did! Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience and as stress free as possible.

Mr. & Mrs. Atencio

We've met Nil, thanks to Facebook, and she became a member of our family immediately.

.. We were looking our first home to buy. Since we were living in CA, it would be so hard for us to relocate to NC if it wasn't with Nil. Thanks to her experience and connections we found our lifetime opportunity and landed on a 3-story townhouse within our budget in less than a month. Thank you so much Nil! You will always be welcomed in our house!

Selin & Senol Ozer

"We have been working with Nil for about 6 months.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Nil. Her professionalism and knowledge of the area that we were interested in buying is above and beyond and we want Nil to be our agent for any future real estate transactions. She is courteous and quick to reply."

Ronald & Veronica Gutschall

"I was extremely happy with everything.

Nil was great under the circumstances that my family and I were challenged with. She understood our needs and ensured that everything was taken care of it. She was extremely friendly and helpful in everything; found the resources that I needed."

Div & Hetal Bhatt

"We had started with another agent and were unsuccessful in finding a new residence.

When we tried again, we chose to go with Nil Basu, who we had met an open house months before. You were a much better fit for us, bringing a personal touch, and keeping a professionalism and sense of trust that is required in such a transaction. You were always there when we needed you, even taking last minute calls and appointments when we were driving around and saw something that caught our eye. It was such a pleasant experience, that you have helped inspire a career change for me. I have experienced real estate before, sharing experiences with family, and came away with an almost “car salesman” feeling. You helped me to see that it can be so much more and that it is a great experience to be shared with someone. It can be enjoyed and not as a mountain to climb. This is one of, if not the, most important purchase/investment that anyone can tackle and you put the fun back in it, as it should be. Our family just wants to say thank you and we will always remember you and how you helped us in such an important time."

The Hadi Family

You did everything great.

But most important thing is, you made us comfortable during this selling and buying house, which is normally stressful process. You were always honest and always planed ahead. Nil Basu helped us selling our town home and buying our new house. She was very helpful every steps of selling and buying a new house. The best things about her, she listened and absorbed everything we said, she noted them not only paper and on her head, even if we forget what we want she reminded us when we made a decision. She did sold our town home while the new town homes were still building around us. Her marketing ideas helped us to sell in three months, which was the time that all the mortgage market was down. Best of all we did not lose any money while we were selling just because her right move at right time. Also when we are buying the house she was very helpful. Right now if we need to buy a house again, we can just ask Nil to buy us a house and we can just go to closing without hesitating what she picked for us. We are so certain that she knew what we want what we like and what we need. We did really enjoy while working with Nil. We never felt like we were alone. She was always available and had time for us. She clearly explained everything while we are selling and buying. She is an honest person that we could trust. Now we are getting ready to move our new house without any questions or worries in our head. We would like to thank Nil all of her professional hard work. Thank you".
