About Nicole
A lifelong lover of architecture and design, Nicole’s passion for real estate originally propelled her into the top ranks as one of the youngest sales managers for the Mark Company, (now owned by Compass). She built a track record of successfully juggling multiple developments totaling in the hundreds of millions. After mastering commercial real estate early in her career, she had a successful stint in new construction sales for developers before settling into her true calling, residential real estate. A top producing agent for consecutive years and counting, Nicole’s numbers speak for themselves. Yet, it’s her approachability, relatability, and savvy counsel that garners her repeat clients and a steady stream of referrals.

Nicole knows that buying or selling a home is one of life’s most momentous milestones, and she has earned a reputation for being an expert sounding board and trusted advisor. A fixture in the industry for nearly two decades, the seasoned agent is equipped to handle first-time buyers and veteran sellers alike. The most non-salesy Realtor you’ll come across, Nicole operates with an effortless straightforwardness that’s never pushy or aggressive. Renowned for being refreshingly relatable, the Northern Californian local has raised kids in both Oakland and Lafayette, which means she knows all about the family-focused choices that accompany home buying on both sides of the tunnel.

As tenacious as Nicole is in her realm as a Realtor, it’s no surprise she was an All-American swimmer and team captain at Cal Berkeley. A natural born leader and team player at heart, she has the unique capacity to remain calm, cool, and focused under pressure. Ultimately, isn’t that who you’d want on your team when the stakes are high? Happily married to a fellow Cal Berkeley Alum and former athlete for fourteen years, the duo is actively involved in their three children’s after school sports and activities. Come weekends you’ll find Nicole joining masters swimming with Orinda Aquatics or hiking and biking with her tight-knit family in the backcountry.
