Nonnie Dinges

A Trusted Name in Peninsula Real Estate since 1984

Old Testimonials link

My husband and I recently relocated to San Mateo from Southern California. After several months of unsuccessfully searching for a home in the area, we met Nonnie, and things just clicked. She was able to match us with a home that fit our needs perfectly! And, because of her extensive experience and networking, she was able to find our new home before it was even officially listed.  The sellers wanted a 30-day escrow, and Nonnie's detail orientation and follow-through made that work despite the geographical separation between us and the sellers. 
We are extremely satisfied with the home, the neighborhood, and our experience with Nonnie Dinges and her team!  Thank you for making the process go so smoothly!
Jane & Steve

Nonnie did a great job as our Realtor.  She was very knowledgeable about the Peninsula market and gave us a wealth of excellent advise.  She represented us with professionalism and enthusiasm and went about and beyond the call of duty on many occasions.  We highly recommend her services and if we ever need a Realtor in the Bay Area again she's on the top of our list!!- S.

In the high stakes world of Silicon Valley real estate, Nonnie Dinges was instrumental in the purchase, renovation and subsequent sale of our very first home in San Mateo Park.  Her experience in San Mateo County provided invaluable in location the perfect house.  In addition, her tenacity, patience and professionalism enabled us to actually acquire the house, versus four other couples, as first time buyers.  Four years later, she represented us in the sale of the same home.  She implemented an extensive marketing plan and due to her long established contacts and resources she was able to get everything done in a very short period of time.  She ensured that all relevant documents were in perfect order and that every deadline was met.  In the negotiation itself, she gave good, well-grounded advise.  Although we knew she had other homes on the market at the same time, we felt as if we were her only clients.  Our experience with Nonnie was exceptional and we hold her in the highest regard. - K. Harrar, San Mateo
Nonnie & Tiffany made the process so easy when it came time to sell my condo.  From the beginning till escrow, I felt comfortable leaving every bit of detail in Nonnie's hands.  I loved the fact that all appointments were set up at my convenience.  Nonnie was able to keep in contact with my tenant, making it easy for me and well as comfortable for my tenant.  If your buying or selling I would defiantly recommend Nonnie and Tiffany as your realtors, the dynamic duo will get the job done! - B. Langridge, San Mateo
Nonnie spent a great deal of time and effort helping my wife and I check different neighborhoods to locate a desired area and house. My wife always noted Nonnie's enthusiasm each day helping us find a house.  I was referred to Nonnie by my parents  whom she assisted in selling a house.  My parents were very happy with Nonnie and I was as well. - Mr/Mrs Whitney, Pacifica
Nonnie helped me buy my first home.  I can't even say enough about how great she was to work with.  She grew up in the area and has been in real estate for many years, so she didn't just get in the market when the getting was good, but because she likes what she does and is good at it.  Those factors were important to me and were ones which drew me to her initially.  Her knowledge of Peninsula neighborhoods, properties and local agents is excellent.  She is well connected, experienced, hard working and just a pleasure to work with.  Its been a very tough market for buyers, and their agents.  Regardless, she stayed focused and upbeat during the whole process and helped me out when my spirits were flagging.  Nonnie was a strong, dependable ally who worked hard for me.  She made buying my first house exactly what it should be; a great experience.  And, Nonnie's assistance did not disappear the day I got the key to my house.  She's sent me useful tax information, other helpful info and even helped me find a great home insurance broker.  Nonnie is just wonderful and I've already recommended her to several close friends.  I wholeheartely and sincerely recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling property. - S. Maineri, San Mateo
When it came to selling our beloved first home, we were apprehensive about finding just the right realtor to represent us. Responsivness, honesty, and integrity were our utmost concerns. After interveiwing three realtors for the job, it was evident that only one realtor truly listened to us, and had the experience to fullfill the task. Nonnie Dinges was there at every turn from putting our house on the market in a matter of days, to pricing it for maximum interest from potential buyers. Every time we had a request, she responded within hours with a solution. Custom-made flyers. Staging advice. Neighborhood marketing materials. Nonnie was quite literally there at every turn, to guide us and hold our hand. during such as stressfull transaction, it was so comforting to know that Nonnie was our advocate. In the end, she sold our house in six days,at a price that exceeded our expectations. For old-fashioned service with a trademark smile,I wholeheartedly recommend Nonnie Dinges. - P. Rogers, San Mateo
Nonnie Dinges represented us very well in our quest for real estate on the San Francisco Peninsula.  In fact, we found our dream house based on her excellent reputation among her peers and detailed knowledge of the Real Estate market.  Her customer service skills are extraordinary as she continously kept us apprised of listings, school reputations, and changing market conditions in the various cities on the Peninsula.  She was extremely flexible to our continous "preferred location" changes and was completely honest and genuine in her recommendations to us at every turn.  She really cared about our needs and fulfilling our expectations above and beyone.  She's very thorough and applies strategy on her customers behalf and always to their benefit.  Her relationship management skills are exemplary.  We purchased our home two years ago and she continues to stay in contact with us through a variety of informational notices that are of concern to us as residents of San Mateo County.  I would highly recommend her to my friends and business associates and will perssonally use  her services for a lifetime. - Mr/Mrs D. DeCarlos, San Mateo
I just wanted to take a moment to say how very, very much I appreciated the way you handled the sale of my house in San Mateo.  Can't believe your energy!  And knowledge and competence.  And I so appreciated the way you stayed in touch at each step of the way.  There was never any need for me to wonder what or if there was any action.  Action?  Fourteen offers within two days of going on the market?  And we got well above asking!

Nonnie, it has been my pleasure to ensure that my other realtor contacts around the country have your name and phone numbers, in the event they have clients moving your way.  They are aware of how y ou went well "above and beyond." - C. Austin, Maryland

Thank you for selling our San Mateo home!  Your expertise and level of preparation contributed to an exceedingly successful transaction.  After twenty-nine years in the Aragon, we wanted to be certain that the sale of our home would be handled in a professional manner and that there would be maximum exposure to buyers.  You surpassed our expectations.

In our interview you were concise and clearly presented the steps necessary to market our home.  You outlined what resources were available through your company and provided us with a binder of pertinent data and comparable sales in our neighborhood.  You mapped out a timeline that expedited marketing our home while still accommodating our personal schedules and needs.  You offered helpful suggestions regarding interior and exterior details that enhanced our property, and you widely advertised our home using the most recent technology.

Our home sold on the first day, over asking price and we received a dollar amount that was greater per squart foot than all the recent sales in the Aragon!  Your knowledge of legal requirements and your positive business relations with support people put us at ease when the transaction closed.

Your ethical professionalism was greatly appreciated, and your warm, genuine attitude made us worry free.  Your willingness to go the extra mile made the difference!  Thanks for your superb efforts.
- Mr/Mrs French, San Mateo

Nonnie and Tiffany are an amazing team! From start to finish they handled everything for me. I have an incredibly demanding schedule and not a lot of down time to handle the multitude of paperwork and appointments that goes into selling a house.
Nonnie & Tiffany were great! They worked with my schedule and never missed a single detail. They are THE experts in the Redwood Shores area, there was never a single day on the market I did not have multiple viewings of my house.

Nonnie & Tiffany went above and beyond anything I would have ever expected of an Agent, they keep selling until the deal is closed. A truly remarkable attribute in today’s world.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication in selling our home. You make a truly amazing team! Your professionalism and enthusiasm were second to none. From the moment our house went on the market to the day we closed (45 days) you were there every step of the way. I never expected such incredible service, but you two are truly incredible people.  - Mr/Mrs Sanchez, Redwood Shores
It was a pleasure having Nonnie Dinges assist us during the search for our first home. Being a native of San Mateo, she knew the advantages and disadvantages each neighborhood offered. At that time, we resided in San Mateo and it was nice that she offered us personal tours of the neighboring areas in her van. We also had very specific requirements on our ideal home. She put our interests first by seeking our honest opinions and tailoring a search that fitted our needs as first time home buyers. Nonnie was also very good in following up with our thoughts and concerns based on the properties we visited. We were also working on a tight deadline. With Nonnie being in this business as long as she has been, she knew key people to help us close escrow in a timely manner. We highly recommend Nonnie for your home search needs. - Mr/Mrs Cho, San Mateo

Nonnie was wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end of the buying process.  She took the time to answer real estate quuestions from the search process to the close of the escrow.  I would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling. - L. Krick, San Mateo
Acknowledging that Realtors are tremendoulsy overpaid, I came to the realization that they do a lot of behind-the-sceens  legwork that we don't even see--and try to make the sale/purchase as effortless as possible, in which is why they get paid the big bucks. It's a lot of stress, but Nonnie was a phone call away at anytime to hold my hand (if I needed it) oh, and I did have a "melt down day." I think we'll all have them.
Now our agent. Nonnie Dinges (if you shop at Safeway at 19th Ave., that's her picture) Anyway, tfor the month of September in all of San Mateo (including San Mateo Park, Baywood, et cetera), we had the highest selling price per square foot home ($615,00 for 1200 square feet of home.) My husband and I followed her advice and it sold rather quickly. Nonnie Dinges KNOWS San Mateo-- I think it's her specialty area. You have to talk to her and see what she says. If you are not in a rush to sell, tell her. If you want to get rid of it fast, tell her. If she has suggestions about selling, listen to her. Now is a great time to sell- interest rates are keeping people looking. Anyway, thanks for letting me carry on. In short, if you are thinking of buying Real Estate in San Mateo County, call Nonnie Dinges.
