Nicole brings a wealth of expertise to South Bay real estate, having discovered her talent for navigating and mastering the complexities of the market after selling her own home. Since then, she has built a strong reputation of trust among her clients and colleagues as a principled realtor with a deep knowledge of local inventory, contract negotiation, and market strategy, bringing clarity and guidance to the process of home buying and selling. Aligning herself with Strand Hill, which dominates the South Bay real estate market, gives her the capability to create a seamless experience for her clients. Her resourcefulness and commitment to quality service have earned her top-producer status. She consistently receives laudatory reports from past and present clients and promises to go the extra mile for them. Nicole has lived in Manhattan Beach for over 20 years, having raised her two sons here. Passionate about the outdoors and relaxed beach lifestyle, the South Bay is a natural fit, enabling her to hike the local mountains, bike along the coast, and take advantage of award-winning public schools. She is also dedicated to supporting and strengthening her community, devoting her time and energy to Givebackhomes, Local Love for Manhattan Beach, and Heal the Bay. Nicole's skill set and personal involvement in the community makes her an ideal person to help you locate the right neighborhood, home, and schools for your family.
Nicole was much more than a professional, knowledgeable and effective representative who was a pleasure to work with on the purchase of our home – she was our friend and ally through every challenge we encountered relocating from out of state with small children to our new home in Manhattan Beach. We are very grateful and would absolutely work with her again on any future transaction.
Nicole is an amazing realtor. I can’t recommend her highly enough for any of your real estate needs. She has extensive knowledge of the local neighborhoods, she is incredibly thoughtful about what would be best for you and your family, and she is unstoppable when it comes to getting you into a home that is perfect for you. I met Nicole when my family relocated to California from Texas. Even though Nicole’s primary focus is sales, she enthusiastically brought us on as clients - happy to get us familiar and settled in the South Bay. She is generous, warm, and welcoming. Nicole spent considerable time with me. She not only walked with me through a variety of homes at various price points, but also helped me understand the nuances of the neighborhoods - down to the everyday details that can impact your quality of life, such as schools, parks, shops & restaurants. She lives in the area, has raised a family here, and understands how details matter. We had long conversations about the differences between locations - always in the context of what would be best for my family. I never got the feeling that Nicole was trying to “force-fit” my family into a property just to get a deal done or that she was showing us properties that didn’t match with our needs. She has amazing talent and learns your preferences quickly, then refines her recommended list of potentials as she gets to know you better. We were on an incredibly tight timeline and needed someone highly responsive. Even though the entire process - first meeting to lease signing - lasted nearly three weeks, Nicole was incredibly helpful and communicative the entire time. We always felt that we were her top priority. She was instantly accessible via phone, email, and text. As with any real estate transaction, there were unexpected twists and turns along the way and like most clients, we had our anxious moments during this process. When it comes to getting through the difficult patches, Nicole is a steady hand. You can count on her to be a calming voice in even the tensest situations. She remains steadfastly focused on the end game - getting you into a wonderful new house. I can’t recommend Nicole enough. She is an incredible realtor and a wonderful person. You would be lucky to have her on your team.
“Nicole did an outstanding job in finding me the ideal off-market property . She was well prepared, thorough, and did an excellent job in representing me during my search. As someone just moving the area, she took the time to educate me as to attributes of the various neighborhoods and found me the perfect location. Nicole has great market knowledge and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking in the South Bay.”
Working with Nicole and Strand Hill was the single best real estate transaction I’ve been involved with. Her constant communication and steady support were present throughout the entire process. Nicole listened to our goals and quickly found a home that fit every one of our needs. On top of that, we had a clean, easy, and painless close for the first time ever. I would not hesitate to engage Nicole again in the future.
I had been looking for a house for awhile but in no hurry. Nicole sent me listings and we visited a number of different places over a couple years. She was always looking out for me with no unwanted sales pressure. We found the perfect house and she helped me negotiate a very fair deal. Nicole helped my whole family go through the whole process. Nicole helped with a check list of things that had to get done and a list of people that had to do them. She kept track of all the time lines and she made herself available 24/7. Strongly recommend
Nicole offered us excellent advice and representation throughout the process. She offers the highest level of expertise and integrity. We sold our home at over asking price and couldn’t be happier!
