Client Reviews

Wow! Noel was the perfect fit for us. She knew what we wanted and walked us through a sensitive transaction. She is so professional; always following up on each step of the purchase and returned all our calls in a timely manner. Her knowledge of the area and the market were key in us purchasing our property at such an incredible price. I highly recommend her.


"I worked with noel on purchasing my first home and she will be the first person I call when I'm ready to sell! She was incredibly patient with me, helping me learn the real estate ropes and walking me through the bidding, escrow and closing process. Not only is she great at her job, she is a great person to get to know - very kind and supportive. I would highly recommend her because she is honest, she made buying a bank owned home as easy as possible and has always been available for questions, even after the sale closed. I ALWAYS recommend family and friends work with her!"

Noel conducts her business very professionally but with a personal touch. She listens and understands your wants and desires. She will share her immense experience and knowledge with the best way to proceed on your real estate transaction. Noel always made us feel confident that our transaction would be completed without incident, as it was. We couldn't be happier. We would definitely recommend Noel for any type of real estate transaction you need.

"Noel is very knowledgeable and committed. She is driven and eager to help you any way she can. She is a great Real Estate Agent and I would highly recommend her. "


"Noel worked with me on a short sale of my home. The entire process was conducted with professionalism and thorough knowledge--and, what was very important for me at the time, kindness. It was a difficult time for my family and Noel kept in constant contact with me, the buyer's agent, and all the various agencies involved. I would recommend Noel Crider without hesitation to handle any real estate transaction with the professionalism all of us look for in a real estate agent. She was and is awesome."


"We used Noel to buy a house in Auburn in January 2011. We had bought 10 acres and where planning on building, but with the housing market going down, found it was cheaper to buy. Noel looked at what we had and listened to what we wanted. She gave us HONEST advice and opinions on various houses we looked at. Noel was always available to us either in person, cell, or through email. Once we found the right home, Noel stayed on top of the whole process through closing. Noel even recommended an excellent mortgage broker which we used and where very happy with. You want a knowledgeable, hardworking, honest agent, hire Noel Crider."

"I could never say enough about my experiences with Noel Crider. She has worked with myself and my family on multiple transactions. There is no way I would ever work with any other agent as long as Noel is here in my area. Her customer service is first and foremost on my favorite list. She truly listens to her clients, she is always available when I need her. To say she goes above and beyond is almost an understatement. Next on my favorite list is her dedication to her career. She is consistently honing her skills through training and staying current on market trends. Noel is a true professional is every sense. I have been completely thrilled with my experience every single time."

"Please allow me to share my utmost wonderful experience working with Noel Crider over the past year. She helped me navigate through the short sale of my home--seamlessly. Never once did she skip a beat and always did what was in the best interest for ME as her client--not just for her to "get the sale!" Noel is an expert real estate agent and demonstrates this time and again for both selling and buying in this challenging real estate market. Noel, you're truly incredible and I had such a positive experience working with you. I appreciate all your hard work and commitment to the process of selling my home. I will, without a doubt, refer you to ANYONE who is looking to buy or sell a home. There's no need to even shop around for a real estate agent--just call Noel and she'll treat you with respect and integrity. THANK YOU, NOEL! You're simply the best."

"Our experience with Noel Crider in Short Selling our home was painless even though it was under difficult circumstances in this tough economic environment. Her talent as a Realtor and a Short Sale Specialist really stood out in our eyes from other Realtors in three important ways, 1) The knowledge, ability and persistence to consistently troubleshoot issues with lenders, 2) Always quickly responsive to our inquiries and keeping us in the loop with any changing issues in the Short Sale process and, 3) Working with us step-by-step all the way through the Close of Escrow. We would highly recommend her services to anyone facing the difficult and serious circumstances of Foreclosure and looking to Short Sale their home. In the future when my wife and I plan to buy a home again Noel Crider has our business without question."

"I can't say enough about Noel's professionalism. She handled everything with competence and a firm but gentle touch. Noel consistently followed through with her responsibilities and always kept in communication. Perhaps the reason I felt most comfortable working with her was the way she kept everyone else on task from the seller's agent, lender, title company, all the way to the inspectors. She showed me as many homes as I wanted or needed to make sure I was purchasing the home that was right for me. You spend a lot of time with your real estate agent, and Noel has the perfect blend of humor and caring, but at the same time she is always on the job for you."

- Margret

"I honestly cannot imagine working with a more knowledgeable and insightful real estate agent. Noel took the time to get to know us, our likes, dislikes, must-haves, and must-not-haves! She was quick to respond to any questions we had and really helped to guide us through the process. (Not to mention the fact that she showed us so many houses and never seemed bothered as we updated our criteria or even choice of location.) I assumed home-buying would be a fairly cold process, but Noel makes it so fun, and makes it clear that she really does care about where you end up! When I found out that she donates a significant portion of every commission she earns, I knew she was the right agent for us! She helped us to find a beautiful home that is perfect for our little family! Through her hard work, persistence and knowledge of the market we were able to get a home we never dreamed we could. Her firm (but kind) negotiating really paid off! I don't think we would be in our dream house if it wasn't for her ability to work with the seller's and their agent. We couldn't be more thankful. She was the perfect combination of professional and personable. I never knew home-buying could be so fun! "

It was a pleasure to work with a professional like Noel Crider. Noel was very knowledgeable of all aspects when assisting me in buying my recent property. She was especially good with the short sale and financing aspects of the transaction. She made the deal flow very smoothly from my prospective. I would heartily recommend Noel for assisting you with any real estate transaction. Mike456, Lincoln CA

My husband and I recently bought a house with Noel Crider being our realtor. We have bought and sold 5 other houses in our lives, and even though this was a short-sale, the entire process went perfectly from start to finish. Noel was responsive and knowledgeable, giving us her time and expertise. She showed us houses within our budget and even gave us a referral to a mortgage company that we ended up using.The house we bought had had another offer accepted on it when we began looking, but Noel remembered that it was a house we really liked. When the offer went bad, she immediately called us and arranged a showing that very day! I call that great customer service--she made the house we wanted a reality for us after we thought it was off the list! We would highly recommend Noel for a realtor--she's the best!

I love, love, love Noel!  We started looking for a home in the Auburn area and ended up in Roseville.  Noel drove us around Auburn showing us homes and neighborhoods that would fit our needs and gave us great ideas and insights into the area.  She even showed us these wonderful walking trails and gave us ideas on how to best access them.  Noel is not only knowledgeable about real estate, but she has a wonderful sunny personality and is a lot of fun to work with.  I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. You can trust her!

- Stephanie B.

Noel is the best! She's responsive, personable, knowledgeable, and efficient. We couldn't have had a better experience. She's professional but utterly likable, as in, "let's chat over coffee next week!" She immediately puts you at ease and we actually enjoyed our experience in what could have been entirely stressful. Her knowledge of the area is vast and she helped my husband and me to hone the specific area where we are to retire in our dream home. She listens well  and simply directs us to homes in areas that meet our criteria; she doesn't oversell or waste our time - she's incredibly efficient. And, as an added touch, she describes in detail what it would be like to live in the area; where we'd grocery shop, where we can find warm apple pie at a moment's notice; the ratings of the local schools; how the area lights up at Christmas time--all of the details that impact our decision to move to the area. She even helped with our hotel stay providing reviews and links, as well as recommendations for lunch and dinner. She was our own concierge! In essence, we are buying more than a house; we are embracing a lifestyle. And she gets that. Big kudos to Noel.

- Deborah B.

Noel is as good as it gets! She and her team guided us through an incredibly difficult, and drawn out short sale process. I'm not sure what the standard service is for a realtor, but I feel VERY sure that Noel went well beyond the normal realms of her duties to insure the success of this transaction. I will recommend her to anyone who asks for a realtor, and feel so fortunate to have worked with her. Thank you so much for all of your work. You are great.

My wife and I spent  an afternoon with Noel looking at properties in Auburn.   She's very knowledgeable about the entire greater Auburn area-all it's nuances and layout.  She is very professional, friendly, and connected.  Her communication skills are top notch and she's very down to earth.  I would strongly recommend her if you are in need of a real estate agent in the greater Auburn area.  It's apparent she not only is very informed of the area but she enjoys living here as well.

- Larry G.

Although we ended up not purchasing a new home in Auburn, we had a great experience with Noel and certainly will contact her again when we are ready to purchase land or a new home.  She is very knowledgeable regarding the foothills market, personable and highly professional.

I can't begin to say enough positive things about Noel.  Very professional and efficient.   She had great suggestions to get our house sold and good professional people she worked closely with  for video, website, pictures, staging etc.  She got our house sold in record time and was so easy to work with.  She is positive, very knowledgeable and always got back to us in a timely manner.  Amazing experience. We highly recommend her.

- Julie R.

My wife and I had a great experience with Noel.  We were out-of-town sellers and she really went above and beyond in taking care of us.  The house we were selling was a rental and woefully out of date.  We met Noel once at the house, and she took over from that point forward - we never needed to come back into town. 

From knowing which contractors to use, to working through issues, doing a bit of landscaping and decorating, Noel was great.   At the end of the day we got exactly the amount that we needed to get out of the house, after being underwater for about 8 years.  She is very thorough and conscientious; and a pleasure to work with.  We enthusiastically recommend her!

- Kerry D.

Noel has been a true pleasure to work with. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the industry. We appreciated her follow up and ability to work with our schedule. She does a great job working with other professionals (stagers, photographer, videographer, other realtors, lenders, etc.) so we knew we were taken care of. She listed our home in Auburn and it sold in less than 24 hours. We even received a back up offer! Noel was with us throughout the entire process. She is not only great at what she does, but a delightful and wonderful person!

- Kindy M.

Noel Crider is a great Real Estate Agent. She's both honest and knowledgeable. Having an agent you can trust is priceless and Noel is definitely trustworthy. Best of all, she's patient. She even puts up with people like me...that alone should earn her agent of the year.

- Stephen F.

Noel and her team were exceptional to work with! Noel was very friendly and professional, caring and laid back.  She is so knowledgeable about the area she serves, but also was committed to learning more as she guided us through some tricky situations with great advice and listening to our wants and needs.  We felt very well taken care of throughout the whole buying process.  We realized through working with Noel that our first home buying experience in a different state did not leave us very trusting when we went to buy our second home, but I am glad to say that Noel and her team changed our minds about that! She was committed to helping us find something and we are very happy with her services and our new home. We highly recommend Noel for your real estate needs!

- R. O.

Thank you Noel for helping us find our dream retirement home!  Your expertise in finding the right location, then navigating the competitive Sun City Roseville marketplace was invaluable.

- Carol W.

Working with Noel was a great experience! It was crucial for me to find a realtor I could trust and rely on, since I had to sell my father's Auburn house while living 3,000 miles away. Noel turned out to be just the person I was looking for. Because I wasn't living in the area, she stepped in and went the extra mile on many occasions, with both small and large tasks. There were a number of times when I thought, "Wow, she is certainly earning her commission!" 

Noel suggested some renovations to make the house more salable. Her recommendations turned out to be right on target--she knows her stuff! The house sold quickly, smoothly, and exceeded my expectations. She has terrific instincts and judgment. On top of that, she's also sensitive and receptive--a pleasure to work with!

I recently hired Noel as the listing agent for the sale of my house in Auburn. I'm very happy with the decision that I made. 

I first contacted her last summer  after reading her reviews here on Yelp. I wanted some advice when making improvements to the house that would make the most sense when it was time to sell. She came out to see the property at that time (which I didn't expect) and offered me advice which seemed well thought out and reasonable. 

This year I was ready to sell and I called Noel along with another agent to set up interviews. Noel came out to meet me first and I liked her so well that I cancelled the second interview and signed a contract that night. 

I had already done a lot of work to the house, but Noel offered suggestions to finish getting it ready for the market and helped find a couple of contractors that I still needed. She even helped me to stage the place using many of her own supplies on the evening before we had pictures taken.  

The result was that I had 5 offers on the first day that we accepted them. I  accepted the best offer, established a second offer as a back-up contract, and then went right to work completing my move out of the house. 

I was in transit going across the country during most of the escrow period, but we were able to keep in touch and take care of the remaining business by phone, email, DocuSign, and overnight mail. Noel is very tech-savvy, so this all went smoothly.

I'm so glad that I selected Noel as my Realtor. I felt like we were a real team during the 6 weeks or so that it took to get my house completed, listed, and sold. I can't imagine that anyone would have done a better job for me.

Noel and her colleagues did an exceptional job facilitating the sale of our home in Auburn. In addition to helping us prepare for and execute a successful sale, Noel and Colleen also went above and beyond the call of duty when they helped us mitigate an emergency repair to our home while we were on vacation and unable to respond. It was comforting to know that they were there for us and handling all of the important details to ensure our home was sale ready and to protect our assets.

We highly recommend Noel and Colleen as outstanding Real Estate Agents.

-David P.

We have now purchased three homes in Auburn through Noel and she has been great!  She is able to find a good selection of homes that conform to our specifications and within our price range.  When she shows them she points out all the issues that may be a problem and suggests solutions that may be available of difficulties in correcting.  She is very complete and helpful in preparing all the documentation with no mistakes.  Once we have zeroed in on a home she is excellent in negotiating a mutually acceptable deal.  I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home in Placer County.

- John S.

Noel, I cannot express how grateful I am to have you as my agent, standing up for me. We had an extremely challenging buyers transaction. Even though my family and I have bought and sold homes with you previously, this one takes the cake. THANK YOU for going way above and beyond what you were "required" to do, and being a friend and confidant all along the way, and always being there. I really wish everyone had the integrity that you do. Thanks to you, my children and I are now in OUR home, and words cannot reveal our emotions. Thank you so very much!!

- A. B.

Noel and her assistant Roice are a great team to work with! They just helped us buy our first house in Auburn CA and walked us through each step. We are very happy with our new house and would highly recommend Noel as a Realtor!

- Amanda R.

Noel is the best! She drove our short sale to completion in a very timely fashion. She went out and actively found our buyers. When the banks were giving her the run around, she went straight to the top to get things in order to complete the sale. A year later, she was our realtor when buying our current home. Her connections helped us creatively finance the home. We are so happy with the way Noel helped us on both occasions! You will be too 🙂

Noel helped us with the short sale of our house. She understands what is happening in the real estate market. She was honest and very straight forward with us. She put together a marketing plan and strategy for our property and reviewed it with us for our approval. She kept us well informed throughout the whole process. Once a buyer was signed up, the bank tried to raise the price twice. The first time the buyer increased their offer, to our surprise. The second time Noel researched and found contacts in the bank's main office and explained the situation. The bank dropped the second increase request.  We feel so confident with Noel she is now helping us in our search for another home.  We are some what picky about what we are looking for and she is great to work with.

- Terry M.

Noel Crider helped me at a very difficult time, the short sale of my house. She was professional, kind, thorough, knowledgeable, and I always felt that she was looking out for my best interest. Perhaps that's why I'm taking the time to write this review. There are real estate agents out there who will do an adequate job. Noel goes far beyond adequate. She takes the time to know you as an individual and works the ins and outs of your particular situation. She impressed me time and again with her thorough knowledge and with her formidable network of experts. I would recommend her very highly to anyone looking to sell or buy a property. She's fabulous.
