Prior to transitioning into the world of residential real estate, Nicole enjoyed success as an entrepreneur forming Collins Design Group in 2003 and Designed Living International in 2006, Nicole's company was engaged by developers to furnish model homes and then sell complete turnkey furniture packages to American and Canadian buyers of high end resort property in Mexico. 

In addition to her impressive professional background, Nicole brings to clients a strong work ethic and a second-to-none knowledge of Orange County's coastal region. 

"With the exception of a year in Aspen and Los Angeles, I've lived in Orange County my entire life," she said. "From Emerald Bay to Irvine Terrace to Newport Coast, I've called a number of the area's most sought-after community's home, and have developed an intimate familiarity with what each has to offer. I am passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to the local marketplace which means an educated and efficient route to the realization of my clients most important objectives."

With a massive network of personal connections, Nicole also offers clients advantages few others can match. As members of Big Canyon Country Club, The Center Club and The Pacific Club, Nicole's family have been prominent in Orange County for many years .Nicole fondly recalls working with her family as a teenager and the opening of the families dream being realized in the Orange County Center for the Performing Arts. What's more she works with nonprofit organizations such as United Way Orange County and Human Options, a charity whose aim is to heal abused lives. 

"I consider myself very fortunate that my family is well known and respected throughout the community," she remarked. "Because we're so immersed within the local culture, we have an incredibly large network and enjoy treasured relationships with many influential people. 

For Nicole, joining Surterre perfectly positions her to deliver the highest level of quality service to each and every client she represents. From Surterre's award-winning in-house design and advertising studio to the industry's latest advances in technology, the company offers its agents a host of advantages not found anywhere else. 

"Surterre Properties is the most innovative and successful force in today's luxury market," Nicole said. "I truly believe that Surterre puts me in the ultimate position to achieve the pinnacle of success."

    We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Irvine, CA
    Nicole was very responsive. We started viewing properties right away. She lives in the area and was very knowledgeable about Irvine based on our needs.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $5.125M in Corona Del Mar, CA.
    Nicole helped find me a great house in Shore Cliffs near the beach that I just love. her help in managment of the transaction and negotiation skills were great. After the closing I utilized Nicoles experience as an Interior Designer on the full house and was happy getting in my lovely home by the Holidays. She is kind and professional and I highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Paul Fleming Founder, Flemings, PF Changs, Paul Martins American Grill.  MoreLess
