credentials & experience

Meet Nicole!

"Although she's a world traveler at heart (having lived in 6 countries) her experienced cultural palate can be found most days at the local Taco Bell. Let her treat you to nachos sometime and ask her about real estate, or PEZ,...she knows a whole lot about both!"

Years in NWA

Since 2006 (Fayetteville, Farmington & Prairie Grove); Prior to living in AR I lived in multiple locations throughout the US, including CA, CO, TX, MD, VA, CT & NY, as well as overseas postings in Moscow and Dubai. Now that I am settled, it is my pleasure to help families, professionals and students in their relocation journey to this area. 

Real Estate Credentials

I  have enjoyed being a REALTOR since 2014 and only wish that I had discovered this profession sooner! I am a full time agent, was the top producing agent in my firm 2016 and have been honored at the Realtor Recognition Awards 2016 & 2017 for yearly real estate transactions totaling over 4.6 million & 3.3 million respectively.  

Professional Life Prior to Real Estate

Prior to real estate I worked as a 4th grade teacher in Washington DC. Upon moving to NWA I owned and operated a decorative painting business for 7 years, gaining valuable remodeling and construction based knowledge/contacts. Following, I helped my family open and operate two restaurants in Farmington (Briar Rose Bakery and Damons BBQ and Grill). And yes, my clients do tend to benefit from free cinnamon rolls while working with me :)

Community Involvement & Hobbies

Meals On Wheel Delivery Volunteer

Wedding cake design/decorating

Wildlife Photography

Spring & Summer favorites: boating on Beaver Lake, kids soccer games, traveling and spending time with friends (usually centered around some kind of grilled meat or crab boil! Yum!)

Fall and Winter favorites: Razorback football, book club, Whole Foods bingo nights and chocolate peppermint back on every menu!

Reliable, Responsive & Trustworthy

P.B. - Buyer, Seller, Prairie Grove

"She was fabulous! She is knowledgeable, professional, a visionary, prompt, courteous, I could go on and on. She helped us sell a historic house, buy land and sell land and buy new construction...all in 9 months! I have, and will continue to, recommend her to everyone. A joy and a pleasure to work  with!"

R.B. - Buyer, Springdale

"Nicole was wonderful to work with. As a new home owner it is a scary process to ask the right questions. Nicole helped me understand the process and guided me through the process. I also believed that her responsiveness is what allowed us to get our home. The home that I purchased had been 3 days  on the market and she was able to schedule an appointment immediately. Thanks to her, I am an owner of a great home!"

B.R. - Seller, Eureka Springs

"Nicole helped stage our house, which I feel ultimately helped sell it.  She videoed the house after the staging and gave the home a holiday feeling.  Nicole had a welcoming gift for the new owners as well as us, the sellers.  Nicole has great negotiating skills and a very warm personality. We were  very satisfied with Nicole's work as I feel any future seller would be."

S.W. - Seller, Eureka Springs

"Nicole is an amazing real estate agent.  She is very professional, knowledgeable, industrious and thoughtful.  Her recommendations for arranging our home are what sold our home.  You cannot go wrong if you hire Nicole to sell your home."

N.J .- Seller, Fayetteville

"Nicole showed up the day that I made contact with her. She sold my house in 2 days, need I say more. She was very professional and spot on wish all of my requests."

S.J. - Buyer, Fayetteville

"Nicole is a very knowledgeable and helpful realtor. She is great at finding out about the history of a property and she understands the remodeling process as well if you are looking for a fixer upper. We highly recommend her after she helped us purchase our last home!"
