Getting to know Nicole
q. How did you arrive at MORE? What path brought you here?
At my last job, I worked in the same office as a local Real Estate school. My employer decided to close down the business, and so since I had always been interested in real estate, taking the pre-licensing classes while I was looking for work seemed like a no-brainer. After having several intense conversations with Andy and Cathy Sentgeorge, it was obvious that these were people I wanted to be in business with. And what a journey it has been!
q. What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?
I have a knack for being an effective communicator and being highly organized in any work setting. And now, as I’ve grown into and fully embraced my role in Operations, I am GREAT at keeping our clients happy throughout the entire home selling and buying process.
q. What do your ideal clients say about you?
My entire career has always been about customer service. I would say that I am able to provide solutions for situations even before they arise. I am very proactive – I’m big on setting expectations and then executing at a high level. Our clients and vendors really appreciate that about me…you can ask them!
q. Who have you worked with in the past? And what have you done for them?
I have worked in retail, manufacturing and government in the past. My most recent position was as a Project Coordinator for a non-profit. In this role, I was the key communication link between our boards and committees and the Network staff. I was also responsible for internal marketing campaigns,social media management and website upkeep.
q. What most excites you about your work & the contribution you can make?
I am most passionate with being able to help people. I thrive in an environment where I can help others. With MORE, our clients really benefit from this passion.
q. What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?
I am most passionate about my animals. My husband and I have three dogs, 13 chickens and one bird. Some how, my animals usually come up in conversations because I love them and I love to talk about them.
q. Where can we find you when you’re not working?
When I am not working, you can usually find me in the garden with my husband or doing a home improvement project together. Matt is an avid gardener and he has shared his passion with me.
q. Where did you grow up and why aren’t you there now?
I grew up in a small town called Uhrichsville, Ohio. In 2012, my mother retired and wanted to move to North Carolina to be closer to my brother. I moved to stay near my family.
q. Any volunteer activities you’re crazy about?
I enjoy volunteering at my church and can honestly say I have not done as much lately as I would like. I am currently looking at getting more involved in the town I live in, Wendell.
q. Any nonprofits you love, & why?
I love Habitat for Humanity. There is nothing cooler that being able to provide someone with a place to call home.
q. How do you want to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as a good wife and mother, a good person who enjoyed helping others and was a lover of animals.
q. Anything else you’d like to tell people about yourself?
I am and will always be a newlywed – I was blessed to marry my best friend and love of my life. We’ve got a little boy that is cute and funny, and is the best thing I’ve ever done.
