Nicole Duran always knew she wanted a career in sales, and since the real estate industry also enabled her to work with people, she jumped in right away. A licensed Realtor since 2009, Nicole loves that real estate is a field where she can always be 100 percent honest and still find success.
Prior to real estate, Nicole spent over 10 years in the service industry. She attended the University of Illinois at Chicago on a full scholarship, where she earned a business degree as well as a spot on the Dean’s List.
Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Nicole moved up north about 10 years ago and has remained there ever since. She works with buyers and sellers throughout the city, with a focus on Logan Square, Bucktown, River North, West Loop and South Loop. As a lifelong resident of Chicago, her experience and knowledge is unmatched by many.
In her limited free time, Nicole loves to travel, bike ride, music, good food, and practice yoga. She also values her time with her friends and family.
Clients are saying:
"Nicole was EXCELLENT!! I started out working with multiple agents and once Nicole and I had our first tour of homes she set the bar high and I wound up working exclusively with her the rest of my home search. I'm active duty Military with odd working hours in Great Lakes, Il and Nicole was able to arrange my tours around my schedule. I definitely recommend Nicole for anyone searching for a home. A great experience."
"We could not have asked for a friendlier, more responsive, and more professional realtor. Nicole made the process of buying a home as seemless as it could possibly be. She answered all our questions promptly and in detail. If for some reason she didn't know the answer, she took the initiative to find it for us. During the inspection process she ment with contractors on our behalf when we couldn't. She also uses technology to her and her clients benefit, making signing all the paper work that much simplier. We closed on our house on Xmas eve and she was there with us for moral support and celebration. I highly reccomend her."
