Novak is a really great realtor, he did such a wonderful job helping us find our house. Thank you so much for everything.

ZORA M. (BUYER 2024)

Selling our home after 20+ years in KW was stressful and emotional. Novak was so helpful and supportive through the whole process. From the 1st time we met to discuss the possible listing of our home his knowledge and experience stood out, to staging, viewing and selling our house. He was there with us the whole way! Hands down the best realtor in KW!!

JAN H. (SELLER  2024)

Novak is an exceptional realtor! His professionalism and market expertise made our home-buying experience seamless. Novak's clear communication and attention to detail set him apart. I highly recommend Novak for anyone in need of a reliable and knowledgeable realtor.


Novak is not only a wonderful realtor he is also truly an incredible person. He is very easy to work with and he is a true gentleman. He really cares about about the safety and well being of his clients and is incredibly respectful. He never pushed me to make any decision and always had my best interest in mind. I am grateful for all of his help and highly recommend him.

EVA R. (SELLER 2024)

Very friendly and patient. Easy to work with and quick to reply. Also very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure and good experience working with him and his team. Customer for life

GARY P. (BUYER 2023)

I highly recommend Novak - hands down he is the BEST realtor to help you navigate the market whether you are selling or buying. Novak was referred to us several years ago by 3 different work colleagues and since then, he's become the 'family realtor' for our extended family. I have personally used Novak to buy and sell multiple properties and each time he's gone above and beyond to make the deal happen and make sure we're happy with the outcome.

Novak has a direct approach and truly cares about his clients - he is honest and won't sugarcoat something just to make a sale. Whenever we'd run into an issue or concern during the buying/selling process, he'd come up with solutions and work to reduce any stress. He communicated frequently with us throughout the buying/selling process and still keeps in touch to see how we're doing. He's not just a great realtor, he's a great person.

He used his knowledge of the Waterloo area and extensive network of connections to find us our current home (private sale) and even a year later, I'm grateful every day to have this home which is so perfectly suited for our family. Simply put, this would not have been possible without his experience, expertise and determination.

Novak is trustworthy, friendly, a true professional and will work really hard to help you sell or buy!


Absolutely amazing experience! We were on a very tight timeline to find our new family home. Novak was wonderful throughout the whole process, honest and very knowledgeable. He took his time with us and, was always there for all our questions. I highly recommend working with him!


Novak is a wonderful and very thorough realtor! He was quick to help us find the home we really wanted and always answers our questions with lots of detail and enthusiasm. He's as sincere as they get and we would absolutely recommend him to everyone! Thanks so much Novak!


Novak is an exceptional realtor. He is professional, knowledgeable and motivated to find you what you are looking for.

We have had the opportunity to work with a couple of realtors in the past and Novak is definitely top tier. He made what could have been a very stressful and tedious experience easy and enjoyable. He went above and beyond to seek out properties, provided us with great advice and savvy guidance on future endeavours.

What separates him from the rest is his integrity and his no nonsense approach. When we met barriers in the process, he was quick to provide solutions and act with our best interests in mind. He kept the lines of communication open and always made the best use of our time. He has set the bar high in the industry.


Novak is an awesome realtor!! I have gone through three realtors over the past 10 years in this region. Novak is the last, and by far the best.

He goes above and beyond where it counts. He provides me with all the facts and allows me to make my decision without feeling pressured in any particular direction. As well, he has gone to city hall to check on bylaws for a particular place we were looking to purchase. He has also called his personal lawyer and accountant on occasion to consult on certain matters when it was time sensitive and a bit complex.
He provides me access to his expertise, and to his network of professionals, long after the deal was closed.

As well, Novak is trustworthy. His work is based on reputation and word of mouth. I know that Novak values his integrity more than any deal. You'll get this sense from him the first time you meet him and walk through a property.

I full trust in Novak's integrity and expertise, and he is always available when I need him.


We were looking for our first home with very limited choices in seller market, Novak provided alot of options and willingly looked for the houses with us. With all his hard work and perseverance, we were able to get a place we can call home that near to good school for our little one and within our budget. we will definitely work with him again and we recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home.

Teamwork that proved results! Novak and Kristi's knowledge of the marketplace worked to our advantage, very quickly. Initial inquiry as to our expectations led to an active plan bringing us exceptional results. They suggested a new condo for our viewing. No need to look further, our new home had been found. Novak and Kristi's actions proved our trust in them to fulfill the plan.


Novak did an excellent job helping us find our first home! He answered all of our questions, helped us with each stage of the process, and showed us places that were exactly what we were looking for. We love our home!

DAVE E. (BUYER 2021)

Novak's professionalism and many years of real estate expertise helped us land our dream estate home in this very competitive market environment. His guidance and attention to even the smallest detail made navigating the home buying process stress free. I highly recommend his services and couldn't be any happier!

RUDY V. (BUYER 2021)

I am glad to be writing this review for Novak Nikolic. Novak helped us find our first home here in Waterloo. Throughout the process he was highly supportive, professional and always looking out for our best interest. Novak is a highly reliable person, and an extremely resourceful partner to have on your side, especially for first-time home-buyers who knew very little about the market. He came highly recommended and I would not hesitate recommending him further.


As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Novak! He was very responsive and helped me navigate buying process. He was very knowledgable about the neighbourhood and provided honest and valuable input - a trusted advisor! Would highly recommend!


My daughter and I purchased a house in Elmira that Novak was selling for a client. I can see he made a good impression on others in these reviews, as he did on my daughter and I. Though I will add that Novak does not attempt to make "impressions". His thoroughness and professionalism is what impressed us. I recommend this agent to anyone wanting genuine integrity, good advice and representation.

MARY H. (BUYER 2019)

I had the pleasure to work with Novak selling my house. He was excellent and listed the house at the right price. He was very professional in his dealings and very patient. I highly recommend him.


We had an unforgettable experience with Novak obtaining a property. He went above and beyond for us and worked really hard to make sure we get what we were looking for. He was very supportive and always available for us during the whole process.  His personal approach, valuable professional advice and efficient style of work made it a positive experience for us. We would strongly recommend him as a great realtor!


Novak did an excellent job with helping us purchasing our first home. Always extremely professional and responding in no time to our questions. Without his valuable advice we wouldn't have got the house we wanted. Thank you Novak, perfect service!


On the 1st anniversary of our lovely new home I am finally finding a moment to share our experience with Novak Nikolic. Novak represented the seller of the home that we purchased. We were immediately impressed with Novak's friendly and honest disposition (our new home was going to require some TLC and we appreciated that Novak didn't "sugarcoat" things). After purchasing the home, we faced the stressful task of selling our old home. I was determined that we were going to sell privately...and I mean REALLY determined! I held this determination right up until I fell and broke my foot. The next phone call was to Novak, and we are so thankful that we did! With his guidance, our house sold within days (and for a price better than we had hoped for). When our much-anticipated move-in day to our new home arrived, our excitement was quickly dashed when we saw that the previous owner had not held true to some of the conditions of our contract. Novak, however, stepped in and personally saw to it that ALL conditions were met (and met to our satisfaction). We will forever be grateful to Novak for that. If you are considering buying or selling (or both!) a home, do not hesitate to use Novak. We whole-heartedly would recommend him and will use him again in the future.


Novak is very experienced and down-to-Earth. He was extremely patient and helpful as we navigated the process of buying our first home. He took the time to get to know our preferences early on, and that helped greatly to narrow down the field until we found the home we ended up purchasing. We appreciated his "no-nonsense" approach to getting business done, and his knowledgability when addressing our concerns. His availability was flexible and excellent, and it was a pleasure to work with him over the course of the past few months!

BEN C. (BUYER 2020)

An excellent agent. Helped us tremendously and answered all of our questions and calmed any anxieties we had about buying our first home. I highly recommend Novak!


As first time home buyers, Novak was the perfect fit for our search. We would highly recommend him as a realtor. Making the decision to begin searching for your first home is incredibly difficult. The relationship with your realtor can cause unnecessary stress and increase the anxiety of this large decision. As first time home buyers, Novak came to the table ready to listen. He was conscientious to our requests and was patient with us throughout the entire process. We never once felt pressure to make a decision we didn't feel comfortable with and made educated decisions using his expertise. Novak was able to provide clarity to our concerns and outline clear expectations during searching and placing offers on homes. Novak worked with us to help us find our very first home that we love dearly and we could not thank him more for this fantastic experience. We look forward to working with him again!

VAL B. (BUYER 2020)

I've known Novak for over five years and my family and I have worked with him several times. I've never known him to compromise his integrity, and when it comes to real estate transactions, that means the world.


We worked with Novak multiple times and it was absolute pleasure every time working with him.


Novak is honest and trustworthy! He provided advice , but allowed us to make our decision without any pressure. He knows to complete a transaction in the fewest moves with excellent negotiating skills.


Novak is the absolute best of real estate agents. He is helpful to the extreme but also very knowledgeable. He has a no-nonsense approach to buying a house (probably to selling too but I don't have experience in that). You will not regret hiring him.


Absolutely outstanding and professional realtor that showed both patience and understanding when it came to both selling my property and purchasing a condominium. His integrity and honesty made the entire process a positive experience and stress free. The only realtor that I would recommend. Keep up the great work and thank you.


Novak was a great realtor! He knows the Waterloo region very well and was extremely helpful in navigating us around the area. He was available whenever we needed him to provide us insight into the home buying process and all of the necessary steps needed to complete our first home purchase.


Novak helped us purchase our first home and we are grateful for all his expertise and for taking the time to understand what we needed and guiding us to the best choices. Thank you!

AKOS S. (BUYER 2019)

Novak has been representing me for a number of years now through multiple houses, buying and selling. Each experience has been excellent from start to finish. In each instance Novak has ensured my best interests were looked out for. His guidance has been crucial in everything from listing prices, closing details, and conditions. I have been recommending Novak to friends and family since our first interaction over 7 years ago, and will continue to do so.


Novak was terrific. He was successful at quickly finding a place that fit all my needs while coming in under budget. I’m very pleased with the service.


It was an absolute pleasure to work with Novak not only once but multiple times. He is extremely professional, diligent and a joy to work with. I continue to refer Novak to friends, family and my clients.

DEJAN V. (BUYER 2018,2019)

Novak was wonderful to work with. He was always patient and accommodating to our requests. Novak was very professional with a great outcome, he got our house SOLD!


Look no further!! If you are looking for an agent, look no further than Novak! We had a great experience working with Novak, very professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would highly recommend!!


Novak is a sincere and honest person. He works hard for his clients and keeps in contact throughout the entire sale. I have used him twice and would recommend him to all my friends and anyone else who needs a good realtor. He is definitely a five star person.


We recommend his service, helped us to sell our property and find our dream home!!!


Novak, you have made our dreams come true! You found us our dream home and we can't thank you enough! It was nothing short of a miracle that you were able to see our house in short order as well so that we could follow our dreams to our new home. You absolutely wrapped your ars around us at this extremely stressful time! Your open approach to all of our questions gave us huge confidence and your commitment and expertise provuded us with ongoing direction and context to make the right decisions. We love our new home and would recommend you to anyone who wants the 'BEST' working for them! We are clients for life!


Novak is the right combination of professionalism and knowledge, while being positive, calm and personable. We greatly appreciate his abilities and we highly recommend his services.


Novak helped us purchase a home and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with. He was very prompt and proactive in his approach, and genuinely wanted the best for us. Our timeline for buying a home was very constrained, and Novak did all that he could to make sure everything went through smoothly. I would definitely recommend him, and will surely be using him in the future.


As a former realtor myself, I can say that I did not have the highest opinion of most realtors! Novak and the Chestnut Park team in waterloo are a breath of fresh air to a stale industry. Honest opinions backed up with researched facts! Not afraid to advise against my emotional responses, but professional enough to respect my decision. Having a plan B in negotiations, taking the time to work with us for over a year to find the right property! Without a doubt the most professional and knowledgeable service we have ever received. Thanks Again Novak, Lee and the Chestnut Park Team.


Novak has been a pleasure to work with! He went above an beyond to ensure our home showed well and sold for a price my wife and I were very happy with. Novak also helped us find our new home in a very competitive market and after losing out on numerous properties he was able to find us our new home! Novak was very patient and positive throughout the entire process and both my wife and I are extremely grateful for all of his help. Thank you Novak!


Novak is a very knowledgeable Realtor with the patience and understanding to make your selling or buying a great experience.


As first time buyers, we were incredibly nervous to begin the process of looking for a home. We had heard so many horror stories from friends and colleagues about the market, their challenges and real estate agents pushing them to make decisions that weren't perhaps always in their best interest. So when we first met Novak for coffee, we were notably hesitant to jump into the market. Novak instantly made us feel comfortable and heard, and even more so, meeting with Novak left us feeling incredibly excited to begin this process. Novak told us that there were no bad questions, and we had complete permission to ask anything and everything about the process, and never made us feel as though we were asking too much - and of course as first time buyers we had a ton of questions! Novak provided us with ample information regarding each house we viewed, and was consistently knowledgeable when asked pretty much anything. Going above and beyond supporting my partner and I in our home ownership journey, Novak was further incredibly kind to our families as they attended open houses with us, and even on our first walk through after having our offer accepted. When it came time to make an offer, Novak offered us counsel as to how we could prepare the strongest possible offer, whilst continuously stressing that ultimately we needed to be comfortable with whatever we put forward. In truth, we couldn’t say enough about how helpful, kind and knowledgeable Novak was throughout our time with him, and we would give him a seven star rating here if possible. We would recommend Novak 100 times over, and already have, and look forward to working with him again one day! Thank you Novak from the bottom of our hearts - we are now living in the home of our dreams thanks to you.


Novak was an excellent agent. He was very patient, sticking with us through over a year during a very fast paced and stressful housing market. Novak was in constant contact with new listings and was very receptive to our specifications. His advice during home visits and stressful bidding processes was very practical and reassuring. We never felt pressured and Novak was always receptive to our questions and second guesses. I would recommend Novak to anyone looking to purchase a home.


We worked with Novak to sell a large condo in Waterloo. Novak assisted and guided us throughout the entire process. Starting from our initial meeting right through the closing he provided us a highly professional service. He was very knowledgeable, highly respectful and considerate towards our privacy and needs. He made the difficult process of selling a place an easy experience for us. Thank you for all your help and professional service Novak. We will certainly recommend your service to our friends and family. Thank you and best regards.


Novak really gets to know his clients and their needs and was successfully able to find us our dream home 2 times! No list of requirements is too short or long, Novak really focuses on making sure you find what you're looking for. He works around the clock and makes himself available whenever it is convenient for the client. Very professional and personable, highly recommend!! We hope to work with him for years to come!


Hi there, we recently had the opportunity to work with Novak on the sale of our home. I was very impressed with the amount of the prep work he does making sure we understand the whole process and to ensure we get top dollar for our home. We had a home stagger who help us showcase our home in the best possible way. Even though market was slow, we had a buyer at the very first open house and sold our house with no conditions. Whole process lasted less than 2 weeks, he made sure we are informed well during that time. His work ethics and customer service skills are very impressive and I would strongly recommend Novak to anyone buying/selling their home.Thanks Novak, keep up the good work.


Amazing Agent! Novak was highly recommended by a friend. His integrity, loyalty and honesty is without question. I am sure if it was not for Novak we would not have been able to purchase that perfect house. He knew the area and the market really well (We were looking in the kitchener Waterloo Cambridge region). He would give us a synopsis of the houses, and inform us of any potential issues or concerns so that we would not have any surprises. From windows, to electrical, to exterior, to additi ons. And he was able to negotiate a good price in a tough market and not rush us into a hasty decision. Good luck finding a better agent.


Novak is extremely diligent with a tremendous attention to detail. He listened very carefully to our needs and executed flawlessly. Novak is a pleasure to work with and often goes over and above the call of duty to make a deal happen. He is very hard working and has excellent sales and negotiating skills. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home quickly and effectively. Hands down one of the best real estate agents in the business.


Novak is highly processional, highly knowledgeable and most importantly honest. He truly goes above and beyond to assist his clients. We were first time home buyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. He spent hours answering our questions and providing objective data. We never felt forced to make an offer. When he found the house that we really liked, Novak made it happen for us to get "the one". He consistently had our family's best interest on mind as he negotiated for us in today's tough/seller oriented market. Novak has been there for our family every step of the way. He has always answered every call and email regardless of what time of day or night it was. His excellent work ethic, his integrity, professionalism, guidance and knowledge are much respected and appreciated.


My wife and I met Novak by chance, but are so happy that we did. Not only was he always professional with us, he was patient understanding and generous with his time. He never rushed us, and always explained things thoroughly. I would recommend Novak to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, we will surely be going through him the next time we are on the market. Outstanding customer service, as well as willing to do "whatever it takes" for his client. They don't make 'em like that anymore!! Thanks Novak!


My husband and I contacted Novak as we wanted to sell our current home in Kitchener quickly, and find the country home of our dreams. It was a tall order, but Novak stepped up to the plate. He was honest, straight-forward and truly had our best interests in mind at all times. He was able to sell our home quickly for the price we wanted (and a short closing as well. He also spent two full days driving us all over this area of south western Ontario to find our perfect country home. When we found it, he negotiated such a great deal that we had money left over to do the required renovations. Any questions we had were answered promptly and all concerns (no matter how small) were taken seriously and were quickly addressed and remedied. He also put us in touch with an awesome home inspector and a great lawyer which simplified the process even further. From beginning to end we felt comfortable and confident with Novak representing us. He figured out what we really wanted, and he did everything he could to make it happen. I would highly recommend Novak to anyone looking to buy or sell. If we ever go through this process again, He is the only one I would want representing us.


Novak, speaks truth to what he represents! We have felt nothing less than comfortable and confident working with this true gentleman. Novak directed us into the right purchase that suited our needs. There was never a moment he did not put our well being first. He had complete genunity regarding our family, which made our experience in finding our first home not only about that but developing a personal relationship!


Novak was very knowledgeable and understanding in helping me purchase my first home for my children and I. Novak listened and helped me through the process. He was hard working, determined and always available. We couldn't be more happier and with his help we found the perfect home. I would highly recommend him to any of my colleague, friends and family.


Novak is one of the most patient men I have ever met. He was my selling agent, and also for 7 months my purchasing agent. The professional shine never wore off in all the months of searching, even though I was extremely picky about houses. His sense of humor shone at just the right moments, making him a pleasure to be around. I would highly recommend Novak to anyone, and would gladly enlist his services again.


Working with Novak was a great experience all around. Not only is he very knowledgeable and professional, but he is funny and truly cares about his clients. He stuck out for us whenever needed and defended our rights all along. We had run into some problems with the home we purchased and Novak went out of his way to help us and make himself available whenever needed. If we ever buy/sell a home again, we'll definitely work with Novak again.


Over the years, I've had the privilege of dealing with many Agents. Without fail, upon completion of the home purchase or sale, every single one of them left something to be desired from the experience. I had given up on the hope of finding that "Perfect Agent"...and then I met Novak in 2011. Professional, knowledgeable, and patient, he understands what questions to ask, when to ask them, and, most importantly, he knows how to LISTEN to the Client and tailor himself to your needs. Apart from dealing with Novak exclusively since 2011 for all my real estate transactions, the best compliment a Client can give his Agent is to highly recommend them to friends and family. I don't normally write reviews online for anyone or anything because I usually have something to complain about, but here I am. This system will only allow me to give Novak a max of 5-Stars, which is too bad because he deserves more!


Novak was a pleasure to work with! He sold my home quickly and he negotiated a great price for us. When helping us buy a new home, Novak was very patient and knowledgeable. I would recommend Novak to all my friends and family. He made selling and buying a home very easy and enjoyable process.
