Nicole was born and raised in San Jose. She has lived in the Bay Area her entire life and loves being able to call it "home."
Before becoming a licensed real estate professional, Nicole worked in technical recruiting and management at Google and Facebook (2007-2016). She recruited the most highly sought-after engineers and research scientists in the world, in the fields of infrastructure, machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence.
While in the corporate world, Nicole received top-notch training and development in negotiating salaries and offer terms, closing strategies, and people/process/project management. She now utilizes these skills to get her Sellers get top dollar for their homes, and to help her Buyers negotiate the best possible price and terms for their purchase.
In addition to becoming a licensed REALTOR in 2018, Nicole furthered her education and achieved her California Real Estate Broker's license in 2021 - a designation only 12% of agents have. This license allows her to start her own brokerage, but she chooses to stay with Compass due to the amount of benefits it provides to her clients.
Nicole and her husband, Nicholas (who is a licensed General & Electrical Contractor), have been together for over twenty years and have four children and two Shih Tzus. They are both passionate about real estate investing and renovation.
Outside of real estate, Nicole's proudest accomplishments include running over 13 half marathons, one 4-hour full marathon, leading a Girl Scout troop and owning/managing two Airbnbs.
Having lived in the Bay Area her entire life, Nicole is an expert in this market. She is a very motivated, driven individual who lives by the highest levels of integrity and honesty. She is a REALTOR you can trust to help you with one of the biggest financial transactions of your life. She would love to be your go-to agent whether you are Buying or Selling, and promises to give you a boutique-brokerage, high-touch experience where you are informed at every step of the process and where YOU come out the WINNER.
