As a Realtor, Nicole’s goal is to help her clients – whether buyers or sellers – avoid as many stressors as possible during each real estate transaction. She states, “I want to help my clients avoid some of the pitfalls, misunderstandings, frustrations, and problems that I have encountered in my own home buying experience, and to help improve upon the good experiences I’ve had.”

With previous experience as a Realtor at a local real estate company, Nicole is taking her skills in real estate to a new level by joining the San Marco office of Florida Network Realty. Her goal as a Realtor is to create strong relationships with her clients that leave them feeling confident about the real estate process.

Before becoming a Realtor, Nicole was a local business owner – owning and operating a cosmetic and beauty store for eight years. During this time, Nicole received many awards and trips for being top in sales, and sales increase for her area and nationally.

When asked why she became a Realtor, Nicole states, “So many things have pointed me in the direction of being a Realtor. For years I’ve dreamed about getting into the real estate market, and have purchased property for resale at a profit, and have owner-built a home,” she continues, “In 2016 it became apparent that my husband and I would be moving and relocating, and I began learning everything there was to learn about the market, house hunting, and the process of buying and selling. Working with my Realtor on our relocation, I began to feel confident that I could not only get my license to become a Real Estate Agent but could also provide excellent service.

When not working, Nicole loves to get outside and enjoy the beautiful beaches of Northeast Florida – boating with her family, snorkeling, stand up paddleboarding, and kayaking. Nicole and her husband also enjoy riding motorcycles – she started riding in 2014, and Nicole loves that sense of freedom and empowerment it provides. One of Nicole’s newest hobbies is photography and she enjoys learning how to better capture her subjects. Pictures of nature, sunrises and sunsets, shorelines, boats, and the bridges of Northeast Florida are just some of Nicole’s favorite things to photograph.

BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HOMESERVICES FLORIDA NETWORK REALTY USES FACETIME™ TO SHOW AND SELL HOMES

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Nov. 20, 2014) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty, Northeast Florida’s most dynamic and innovative real estate firm, offers a fully virtual home buying and selling experience using FaceTime.

“Our team understands how challenging it can be to bring everyone together for a real estate transaction,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “With FaceTime, our real estate professionals can show a home with their smartphone. It is exciting to see how technology is helping to simplify and accomplish this part of the home buying and selling process.”

FaceTime, Apple’s video chat service for iPhone 4 and 5, as well as many iPads, has proven success connecting friends and families around the world. Businesses like Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices are also making the most of FaceTime and other technology applications for the benefit of its customers.

Realtors Linda Maxwell and Sarah Leuthold

Realtors Sarah Leuthold and Linda Maxwell of the company’s Avondale/San Marco office recently sold two homes with the support of technology. They used FaceTime to show a home to a couple who were relocating to Northeast Florida from Arizona. Even though the couple had never visited Jacksonville, they put a contract on the home following the FaceTime showing.

The seller of the home was represented by Realtors Josh Nugent and Dee Burnett, also of the Avondale/San Marco office. Buyers and sellers often select Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices because the company provides technology with the most effective tools and services.

“Our seller was thrilled with the end result,” Nugent said. “Our company’s advanced technology gives us an edge. We have sold many of our listings using professional photography or video.”

As technology continues to transform the ways in which buyers search for homes and real estate professionals communicate with their clients, the company’s technology development group remains on the forefront of new advancements.

“Technology is helping us make the home buying and selling process as convenient for our clients as possible,” said Broker/Executive Vice President Christy Budnick. “Our company is the market leader and we are constantly challenging ourselves to use technology and applications to streamline the process and successfully achieve our clients’ goals.”

And while the company embraces the use of technology, leaders recognize that some clients choose to communicate in different ways.

“We recognize that some clients have hesitations about technology and prefer face-to-face interaction,” Budnick said. “While technology plays an important role, it all comes down to people and relationships. Exceptional customer service remains the core of our business.”
