At the heart of every successful real estate deal is a great agent. Finding a home, making an investment, or planning to develop in New York City brings with it challenges overcome with patience, focus, and drive. In a place that moves at the speed of light, to-do lists grow like weeds, and big city demands overwhelm. “If you’re looking for the next great deal, your most invaluable tool is having someone on the inside.”
Connected, personable, and knowledgeable, Nicole Winthrop brings over 10 years of experience working in research and administration, customer service, and sales. In an industry where networking and building relationships are key, Nicole’s resourcefulness and vision, willingness to take initiative, and ability to collaborate, have worked to consolidate ambitious goals, leading to successful deals throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.
“When someone comes to me and says, I’m looking for a place to live, or I’m looking to make an investment, my inner go-getter comes to life. I immediately take to the streets. I say hello, because the next great deal is not on the computer. It is with the people you meet, the connections you make, the knowledge you build. One door slams, another opens, and suddenly you’re on the inside. A great real estate agent is that someone on the inside.”
With an approach rooted in cultivating face-to-face relationships and customizing transactions to her client’s needs, Nicole has been distinguished as a top producing agent in 2012 and 2013, having ushered in deals with new developments, like Related’s MiMa in Clinton and UDR’s 808 Columbus Ave on the Upper West Side, as well as collaborating with numerous agents on exclusive listings. Her name and business acumen are recognized by some of the city’s most reputable landlords and management companies, having closed deals stretching from FiDi to Manhattan’s beloved Upper West and East sides, as well as in Williamsburg, Prospect Heights, Hamilton Heights, and Harlem.
Nicole is a proud member and supporter of REBNY, the Harlem Business Alliance, and the NYC Small Business Association, and has received training in marketing and sales at NYU. She is a firm believer in doing things the right way and values respect, excellence, mindfulness, and enthusiasm, all of which are evidenced in her strong work ethic. A New Yorker for over 5 years, Nicole has lived in many parts of the city and now calls Harlem home.
