A Mix of Southern Charm with NYC Hustle
Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Nicole moved to Manhattan shortly after graduating from LSU to pursue a career in Retail Management. After living in NYC for over a decade, she bought a house in Darien, Connecticut with her husband Brian and young son Myles to be closer to family. Her first hand buying experience helped solidify her decision to pivot her career into real estate. She knew that buying a house was more than a transaction, and that every client would need an individualized approach.
Being a new mom in town, Nicole hit the ground running building connections and learning the ins and outs of the area. She quickly became the go to for information on events in Fairfield County and loved helping her new friends get settled in. She also learned from the best by spending time with top performing agents in the area to gain hands-on experience.
Her strengths in communication, negotiations, recruitment, and sales help her clients navigate obstacles successfully during their journey. On a personal level, she loves cooking, visiting wineries, watching football and enjoying time at the beach with her family.

My Listings and Sales
My fiancé and I recently enlisted Nicole's services to find our first apartment together. Operating on a tight budget, a small window of time and very specific location requirements Nicole was able to find us a wide array of rental options both within our price range and location. She was extremely responsive to all of our needs, always getting feedback about what we liked and what we did not like about the apartments we viewed. She knew the area extremely well and was able to provide information about any neighborhood we were looking in. We were both moving to CT from two different states. Nicole was extremely efficient in showing us as many places as she could while tightrope walking our schedules. We absolutely recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a place to live, and we will certainly be using her again if the need arisesPaxton Mclane, client
