Today, information technology and artificial intelligence are changing the way buyers and sellers interact and how they access information.
“However, when potential buyers consider purchasing a property, the value and the importance a knowledgeable local Realtor can provide cannot be overstated,” said Nicole Brende, a Realtor with Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty. Realtors’ market knowledge and personal relationships are priceless. Plus, the details they have cannot be found on the internet. Real estate will always be a people industry, and the internet cannot compete.
Brende has been in real estate for almost a decade and since her real estate licenses say Texas, she assists buyers and sellers around Texas.
“While I have handled transactions as far away as Austin, Clear Lake, Lake Conroe, The Woodlands, Katy and Sugar Land, most of my clients’ transactions range from the Energy Corridor to the Inner Loop. Essentially, I am versatile and keep abreast of market happenings in a wide range of locales. Currently, I have a breathtaking French country estate for sale in Kirbyville, near Beaumont,” Brende said.
Brende hails from California and was raised in Las Vegas. She has called Texas home since 1996 when she attended Southern Methodist University, majoring in journalism.
Prior to real estate, she enjoyed a career as a TV news reporter and producer in East Texas.
She relocated to Houston in 2003 to serve as on-camera host of the TV show, Hot on Homes. This role quickly helped her become intimately acquainted with the greater Houston area.
She comes from a long line of friends and family involved in real estate, so real estate is in her DNA.
Brende has been in the Circle of Excellence at Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty each year, and the Hall of Fame, since becoming a Realtor.
With a background in journalism, news, TV hosting, multimedia sales and marketing positions, she has honed skills in working with diverse personalities and thinking outside the box, which benefits her clients.
Brende is known for being positive and keeping things in perspective. She is a market expert and knows the rules and regulations of the industry, working with integrity, professionalism, and respect with all participants in a transaction.
She is also approachable, available for her clients, a good listener, and a strong communicator.
“I am thrilled to be in Houston with my husband and son, and love what I do, especially with the strong market thanks to our great industries and growing population,” she said.
