About Abra Nicolle
Integrity, tenacity, communication, discretion and honesty. These are the tenets that Nicolle has built her business on and brings to each and every transaction she does. Nicolle's careful attention to detail, understanding of the complex New York real estate market and her ability to understand her customer's needs make her an excellent and professional broker. She understands that purchasing and selling a home are important financial and emotional decisions and works with clients to make that process as smooth and successful as it can be. Nicolle has the right combination of creative problem solving skills, business acumen and market knowledge and can expertly handle buy, sell or rental transactions whether for personal or investment purposes.
During a family visit to New York City when she was 5, Nicolle knew then that someday Manhattan would be her home. Following her graduation from Carnegie Mellon, she moved to Manhattan. Nicolle worked for several investment banks which included spending two years on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. With the temperature of Wall Street changing, Nicolle returned to academia to earn her MBA in Management at Baruch College while also attending the Institute of Culinary Education.
Several years and one rough job market later, Nicolle was still searching for a career that she felt passionate about and that could utilize her broad skill set while satisfying her entrepreneurial spirit. Serendipitously, she was given a real estate opportunity of a lifetime and sold her first home to buy her current home. Nicolle found the process to be challenging, personal, emotional and fascinating, and knew that becoming a broker would be a perfect career fit. Since then, she seems to have the odd gift of attracting challenging deals, yet successfully overcoming obstacles and always getting the deal done. She understands that though this is not just a business transaction but often an emotional journey and she works to be her client's advocate and guide through every step of the transaction.
Nicolle is currently a very active member of her coop board with an eye towards construction and finance. She has a broad variety of interests including being an avid reader/writer, a lover of film, architecture, and visits Ireland every chance she can. She lives on the Upper West Side with her rescue dog, Willa.
