about nick

Nick has many years of experience in selling real estate, having been involved with countless multi-million dollar transactions in both Marin and San Francisco.

Born in San Francisco and raised in Marin, Nick has a great knowledge of both areas; from the personalities of each town and neighborhood to the reputations of schools. Nick truly knows Marin and San Francisco and loves to share his knowledge with clients.

As a full service broker, Nick is always available to his clients and provides them with full service before, during and after every real estate transaction. Along with a focus on service, Nick is known for his integrity, negotiating skills, inventive marketing and knowledge of the market. While Nick specializes in representing buyers and sellers of properties, he works with buyers and sellers of all different situations.

Nick is also the founder of housing non-profit Home For A Home through which he uses a portion of commissions earned on real estate transactions to fund the construction of homes for those in need.

Home For A Home is driven by the belief that a safe, solid home can be the catalyst to dramatic and positive change in people's lives. When someone uses a Home For A Home member to represent them in the purchase of a property, the agent donates a portion of their commission to fund the construction of a home for a family in need. With a growing network of over 75 realtors, mortgage brokers and leasing agents currently making regular donations, over 200 people have received safe solid homes.

Currently, they are building houses in the poorest areas of highland Guatemala. Homes are made entirely of reinforced concrete block and floor, corrugated metal roof, with skylight, a metal door with lock, and a metal-framed window with glass. The home is stuccoed and painted inside and out with colors chosen by the home owner and includes a bunk bed.

The houses are simple, yet solid. They provide a huge improvement from the living conditions most of recipients had been living in which usually consisted of cornstalks, plastic sheets and dirt floors.
