About Nicholas

I’ve always wanted to help people make good decisions in life. At an early age I wanted to be a sports agent. I’ve cared about helping people reach their dreams and after I was finally able to call myself a full-time real estate agent, I realized I could still do that. I want to be your friend, but more than that, I want to be your trusted advisor. I can promise to do everything I can to help you go wherever you want to go. I want to go there with you. There are many professions out there to choose from but there aren’t many where working with people and businesses allows me to watch them grow while I grow with them. Let’s build our dreams together!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Iowa City?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Iowa City is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
