This has been my fourth purchase over the years and Amanda Wasenius and crew were the very best to work with. Amanda is extraordinary, witty, and very direct in her approach within such an aggressive market. She was always available within a few hours or less any day I wanted to see a property. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process, helped me think things through, and was confident that I would find the right home even though it was slim pickings at times. She is a little piece of sunshine! Really liked the InTown Partners Real Estate Group /Keller Williams style. Super efficient, professional, and warm with the quickest tu...— William D.
Could not have asked for a better home buying experience. Amanda was with us from the start expertly responsive to our requests and quick to find solutions. A great home buying experience with a professional agent. Would refer her to anyone.— Buyer
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Amanda! She was very response to my calls and emails. As a first-time home buyer, I feel she kept me informed every step of the way. She worked really hard at any negotiating needing to be made. I will continue to use her for any and all of my real estate needs!— Buyer
Christine turned our one week home buying race into a fun, fast paced, dare I say; vacation. Being new to Huntsville, we were all over the map, literally, Christine set aside time devoted to showing us around and helping us decide which area we wanted to narrow in to. Once it came down to a decision between two homes, she demonstrated incredible patience and didn't leave us for a second. She knew we were on a tight time line and never skipped a beat. With a huge decision on the line, there were still many laughs and good memories made. What should have been a crazy stressful week, Christine helped turn into a fun and enjoyable experience. I would no...— Jenn M.
Christine made the selling of our home such a pleasant experience,. She was very engaged and involved in the entire process, from the initial meeting, to staging our home, to open houses and final closing. She kept us informed every step of the way and offered suggestions to gain more exposure. Her knowledge and expertise gave us peace of mind and we trusted her throughout the process to help us make good, informed decisions. Christine's overall approach was very personal and didn't make us feel like just another client. She took what is normally a very stressful event and made it easy. If we ever have to buy/sell a home again, without hesitation, C...— Allen

Working with Nicole has been a pleasure. She helped us both sell our house and purchase a new one. She is extremely responsive and eager to help in any way. She coordinated everything from inspections to contractors and provided great recommendations. Nicole handled every detail making the whole process as simple as possible. We highly recommend her to others.— Buyer & Seller
Trying to buy a house for the first time was overwhelming. I had no idea what I was doing and already hated the process after trying to do it on my own for a couple of months. I ran into Nicole at an open house and was pretty hesitant about giving her my contact info. But, I'm so glad I did. She sent me houses, got to know my likes and dislikes, and invested a good bit of time in me weeks before I had even committed to her. She was always available and had great response time to all of my questions. She walked me through the process, even though it took months. She found me an amazing home, and after some negotiation, I bought it for a great price.— Cassie A.
Working with Nicole has been nothing short of amazing! I'm relocating from California to Huntsville and Nicole responded to an inquiry that I made on an initial property interest. I closed on a house yesterday in an area I love, for a great price, and it was Nicole that made it happen. When we flew out to look at properties, she was fully organized with schedules, maps, drinks and snacks! She was super easy to work with, totally responsive to my texts, emails, and phone calls. She dealt with all the inspections and had a great referral for financing. She knows all about the area and clearly loves what she does. I highly recommend her. You couldn't d...— Joe G.

Nicole sold two houses for us in about two months. We decided that we were going to move out of town and had to sell our house that we lived in plus our rental house. We interviewed a few different agents and Nicole presented us a plan that we liked. We put our rental house up for sale following the plan and it sold in 5 days. There were a couple of complications during the closing but Nicole worked with us to ensure that the closing was going to happen even though it was delayed a few days. We were finally ready to sell the house that we were living in and Nicole put it on the market. We had numerous showings and we accepted an offer after 5 days. ...— Marshall D.
Nicole made our process easy and stressfree. We negotiated with the sellers and she helped us get almost all closing costs covered. She told us exactly the best things to ask for to personally fit our needs! She explained all the numbers and made it sound simple. Everyone always says house buying is so complicated but if Nicole is your real estate agent, it will be a stressfree fun experience. I'm beyond thankful she was the one who helped us purchase our first home!— Buyer
After living in the Huntsville area for forty plus years, my wife and I made the momentous decision to move to Pennsylvania to be near our son and his family. What could have been a very traumatic experience was made much easier due to the marketing skills of Nicole and her associate Christine Wicks. When questions arose, they were always ready with an answer. While we're glad the migration is over, if required to do it again, we would not want to repeat it with anyone else.— Buyer
From the first time I called Nicole she always answered very promptly or called me back as soon as possible. Every step of the way to finding a place to call home she was patient and understanding! Some houses all we did was drive by and shook our heads no. She’d laugh or smile and say, “ On to the next one!” I hate ive personally been so busy I haven’t left a review till a year later, but I must say it really warmed my heart and made me smile when I got a txt message a week ago from Nicole congratulating us on 1 year of living in our new home! Thank you again Nicole! If we ever move you’ll be the one we call!— Buyer
Very professional and knowledgeable of real estate in Huntsville. Pleasant and easy to communicate with. If she is not available, another member of the team contacted me to see if they could assist. I live in another state and felt comfortable with the recommendations from Nicole, such as banks, home inspector, attorneys and they were all great and reliable. I have no reservations in recommending her to family and friends and anyone looking for a top notch, trustworthy realtor.— Buyer
Nicole was so helpful and attentive through out the entire process. She understood our wants and needs and held our hands the whole way through. She made everything stress free, simple, and very quick!— Buyer
Nicole was a dream to work with from beginning to end. I originally had contacted her to help me find a rental and that morphed into me purchasing my first condo in Laguna Beach! She was utterly patient with me as I navigated all first time home buyer questions & was extremely responsive and timely doing so as well. Highly recommend Nicole and hope we get the opportunity to work together again!— Natasha C.
Nicole was instrumental in helping my husband and I purchase our first investment property. She met with us to discuss both our short and long term goals. Nicole then started identifying deals that met our criteria and was very quick to let us know when a gem hit the market. Huntsville is a hot investment place so it's important to move quickly in order to compete with other investors. Nicole even ran the investment analyses on deals including both Buy&Hold, and other investment strategies to show the numbers. She is very knowledgeable in real estate investing and gave us the confidence to jump into the game. We look forward to building our portfoli...— Kara D.
The very best home selling and buying experience ever. Its impossible to describe the professionalism of Christine Wicks and her partners. She was super knowledgable and detailed. Christine and her associates, Nicole, and Amber were always there for us, with answers to any questions. We were told by neighbors and friends over and over what a great job was done in marketing our home. Christine paid such attention to every detail when she listed our home, and when it came to purchasing she really watched out for us, helped us make good decisions and completely followed through from the first day till the last. She took care of every big and small deta...— Wendell T.
It seems that whenever something wonderful happens, it's always "someone else" it happens to. My wife and I we were blessed to be that "someone else"! We recently relocated to Huntsville, AL, and were looking to buy a home. Our real estate agent, in Utah (where we moved from), recommended we contact Nicole Hartenbach at InTown Partners Real Estate Group in Huntsville, AL, and speak with her. After discussing with her exactly what we were looking for and the price range we sought to stay within, Nicole immediately went to work. while we were still living in Utah! Nicole sent us current home listings on a regular basis which helped us to get an excell...— Larry H.
