Nicole Gary grew up exploring the streets and phenomenal architecture that make up New York City.
Nicole’s father, an entrepreneur who showcased his luxury window treatments and interior design shop within Manhattan’s premier Decoration and Design Building in Midtown, not only showed her the ropes of managing a business, but inspired Nicole to appreciate the culture, beauty and design within the spectacular city that was a short train ride away from her childhood home on Long Island in Woodbury.
Nicole’s childhood memories are of visiting some of Manhattan’s premier residential buildings; 15 Central Park West, AOL Time Warner Building, The Sherry Netherland, The Dakota, and countless others that made up her father’s portfolio of clients. Developing a deep appreciation for the aesthetics of prewar and modern architecture while learning the importance of catering to clients’ concerns and desires, ultimately led her to a career in luxury real estate.
Keller Williams New York City’s culture of continuing education, agent-centric atmosphere and profitable business model was the perfect platform on which to build her experience, education and an impressive client base that includes some of Manhattan’s most notable visionaries, architects, celebrities and world-renown clients.
Nicole’s experience includes working in interior design sales and managing large-scale projects. Her reputation for creative design concepts, lead generation and excellent customer service/client relations has resulted in her being recognized as a top sales professional and serving as a key speaker at large sales conferences in Manhattan.
Nicole’s arsenal of experience, education and talent includes a B.A. Degree in Business Management (with a minor in Interior Design) from Arizona State University’s internationally-recognized W.P. Carey School of Business. During her Junior year, she had the enviable opportunity to study at the prestigious Scuela Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy where she immersed herself in the culture, traveling throughout Europe and studying the interiors and exteriors of some the world’s most architecturally significant and beautiful homes and buildings.
Accustomed to juggling many responsibilities, Nicole’s clients know that she’s always just a phone call away. Her relentless energy, positive attitude and knowing the nuts and bolts of this non-stop industry make her one of KW NYC’s most valuable team members.
Nicole’s Motto: My clients are the reason for my success! I make sure I am accessible to them 24/7. I’ve had the good fortune to parlay my experiences into doing what I love to do -- live in the best city in the world and find people their dream home. New York has some of the most beautiful architecture in the world and being able to show my customers the value and beauty of these residences is inspiring.
Nicole credits her father as her mentor as he showed her that hard work and learning business “from the ground up” results in an impeccable work ethic, financial success and most importantly, living a life with purpose.
A fitness enthusiast, Nicole spends her downtime in the gym, snow skiing and biking. One of favorite pastimes is spending time with family and friends, exploring Manhattan’s parks, art museums and people watching.
Nicole lives on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
