Lapera-Holler Team Testimonials

At Lapera-Holler Real Estate Teams, our customer satisfaction says it all. 


“Nicole and her team were an answered prayer for our family.  A coworker recommended Nicole to my husband after hearing the challenges we were having with our agent.   When we contacted Nicole, she was exactly the person we needed to help us buy our first home.  We were also dealing with a short time frame, a very specific location and a baby on the way, so we needed an agent who would be patient with our concerns, but also prompt and on top of things.  Nicole guided us through the process and was very attentive to our questions and concerns.  She was able to put things into perspective for us, with her many years of experience, and she would advocate for us when necessary.

Needless to say, we found the perfect home for our family.   Nicole gave us great advice in putting an offer packet together, and it was the extra small details that she advised us on that made the deal for our offer be accepted.  We are forever grateful to have met Nicole, and consider her a family friend.  Without a doubt, we would recommend her 100% to family and friends, and anyone who is looking for a great, personable, purposeful and thorough agent.”

“Nicole helped sell our rental home a few months ago and it was an extremely easy and good experience for us.  Her knowledge in the business is outstanding and we definitely felt that her expertise played a big factor in keeping us grounded and realistic throughout the process.  In the end, we listed quickly, were under contract quickly and settled quickly.   She is extremely professional and was always available to answer my 10,000 questions and listen to my “what-if’ scenarios.  Though we don’t have any immediate plans to move anytime soon from our current home, I will be calling Nicole again once the time comes to sell and buy again.”

 – Ida Davis, Frederick MD


“Nicole was dedicated, helpful, and invested in our happiness throughout our simultaneous selling and buying process! She kept us grounded and calm, and made sure everything worked out beautifully with the timing of our move. We’re now in our dream house because of her and her team!”

  – Erin Barber, New Market MD

   “I highly recommend Nicole and Joan.  They are absolutely the best agents around.  I have bought five houses and sold two houses over the last 18 years living in Frederick County, using Joan and Nicole as both a buyers agent and a sellers agent.  Every buying and selling experience went perfect due to their professionalism and attention to detail.  

  In the most recent transaction, Nicole was the buyers agent for a foreclosure.  The purchase process was intense because of the short turnaround times for paperwork and extra work dealing with the bank.  Nicole went above and beyond to make sure we got everything to the bank’s agent even when the paperwork deadlines were unreasonable.   One example comes to mind: The bank’s agent wanted a certified check to her office within 24 hours.  Of course, we found out on a Thursday before a holiday weekend and both Nicole and I were leaving town for the holiday weekend.  We could not overnight (FedEx) the check since we found out so late from the selling agent.   To make sure the check made it in time, Nicole drove the check down to Bethesda dealing with 270 traffic on a Friday before leaving for vacation.  Exceptional!!!   I was extremely grateful to Nicole for her patience in the buying process.”

   “I used Nicole to purchase my first home 6 years ago. She has since sold that home and got us our forever dream home. She spent countless hours of hard work with a difficult purchase this last time and took the stress away from myself and my wife. She will go above and beyond to help you with all your questions and needs. She will also negotiate and make sure that you are getting the best deal. When we put our house on the market she advised us on exactly what to do to our home to get the most money and we got a contract in less then a week!!! Herself and Joan are the best, most professional agents I have ever worked with.

           – John & Hannah Creswell , Thurmont MD 

   “My wife and I were referred to Nicole by a family member who used Nicole to sell their town home as well as buy their new home.  We decided to use Nicole as a selling agent for our town home and were very impressed by her professionalism and quality of work.   She was always available and did a great job advertising our home which sold in less than 48 hours.  She was very informative and efficient in keeping us up to date as well explaining the whole selling process seeing as this was our very first home we sold.  From start to closing, my wife and I were always kept up to date and informed of everything making it a seamless, easy process.

There was no question that we would use Nicole as our buying agent when we purchased our new single family home in Frederick.  Nicole got to know us and was able to identify exactly what we were looking for.  We only had to look at less than four homes before we found our dream house thanks to Nicole.  We couldn’t be happier and would recommend her and her team to anyone.  Similar to selling our townhome, we knew exactly what was going every step of the way and Nicole was able to recommend and set up everything for us to make our new home purchase an exciting, easy process.”

– Mark & Erica Murphy, Frederick MD

“Nicole was a pleasure to work with. She was knowledgable, professional, and always available. She helped us quickly sell our old house, and buy the home of our dreams. We both enjoyed working with Nicole, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking realtor services.”

“Joan Lapera and Nicole Lapera-Holler have worked with my parents and I for years on many buying and selling transactions. Their knowledge of the industry and effort put forth to help my family have surpassed all my expectations. I would not use anyone but Joan and Nicole in the future.”

– Joe Spinelli, Walkersville MD

“Working with Nicole of the Lapera-Holler Team was an instrumental part of the purchase of my first home. As a first-time homebuyer, I was cautious and had many questions regarding the home buying process. Nicole was very knowledgeable, friendly and was available whenever I had questions or concerns. I would recommend using Nicole and her team at Real Estate Teams for any future home buying or selling needs!”

-Andrea, Frederick MD

   “Nicole Lapera-Holler has been our real estate agent for more than 10 years.  She has assisted us with selling and purchasing homes and worked tirelessly for us.  We have also recommended Nicole to our family and friends and they have been equally as impressed with the service and the results they received.  If we sell or purchase a home in the future, there is no doubt in my mind that we will call Nicole.”

PS.  Thanks, Nicole for always making us feel like we are your only clients!!

       – Beatrice, Middletown MD

   “Joan Lapera has been working with me for the last few months in the effor to sell my home. She has been extremely professional and knowledgeable about the real estate process. She has been quick to set things in place, like photos on the Internet, the sign in my yard, and is very prompt with returning my calls, emails, or texts. I would like to take this opportunity to say that she has also gone above and beyond to help me obtain advice with an out-of-state home purchase issue. Entering into a real estate contract is not something that I have done frequently. Counting on my agent, Joan, to guide me toward experts who eventually helped me solve my out-of-state real estate problem, is more than greatly appreciated. I fully recognize that taking time to assist a client outside of the norm is not something that all people would willing do. I want to compliment Joan on her sincere compassion, understanding, and willingness to help a client in need!
I am so fortunate that I selected her to by my agent. I will surely call on Joan for all my future real estate needs and will sing her praises to friends who need a terrific real estate agent.”

         – Penny, Walkersville MD

   “Two years ago we were planning to move to Frederick. Without ever meeting Nicole she quickly helped us through email and phone calls set up several viewings. She was so incredibly helpful, quick to respond, and caring!! I cannot say enough great things about this group! We found our home that day with her assistance and she made it such an easy process for us. Thanks again Nicole! You’re awesome!”

   “This team will really take care of you!! We just closed on our house after 9 months of searching for the perfect one. Nicole, Joan and Joe were super helpful and at times bent over backwards to accommodate our family. Selling and buying a home is stressful but they got us through it and helped us get everything we wanted.”
