Meet The Founder

Hi! Thanks for dropping by. I am Herdine Nicholson, a licensed real estate broker in Florida and Jamaica with approximately 18 years real estate experience, several of those years were spent as a US top producer while licensed in the state of Georgia.

I left a career providing Strategic Management, IT Project Management and Business Analysis for the C-Suite of several fortune 100 companies when I welcomed my second daughter 18 years ago to pursue real estate because I believed, at the time, I would have more time with my brand-new baby then return to my career in Tech. Little did I know that real estate would become my passion and the joy of interacting with clients, customers and other real estate professionals would be so fulfilling. It shouldn’t have been a surprise to me because when I was 7 years old, I got a Monopoly board game for Christmas and no one could beat me at that game. To this day its my favorite board game. From that age I learned the value of owning real estate, improving the property and collecting rent.
