Nicole is a die-hard Chicagoan with family roots in the northwest side and surrounding Chicagoland area.
Her passion for real estate started from a childhood spent in the close-knit Portage Park community and progressed as she moved to other rooted and emerging neighborhoods, including Lakeview, Humboldt Park, Bucktown/ Wicker Park and Logan Square. Residing in many different parts of Chicago has helped her develop a deep understanding of local neighborhood culture and the distinct communities that make up the best city in the world.
Nicole's interest in real estate as a profession grew as she worked within Chicago's hot restaurant and bar scene, learning the dynamic association between commercial and residential real estate development and witnessing first hand how quickly a neighborhood can be transformed by new demands. Her experience in the service industry has given her a unique and valuable perspective on social trends and other factors that influence Chicago's fast-paced, ever-changing housing market.
A people person with a causal, unpretentious approach to client relationships, Nicole will embrace your needs like a trusted friend and ensure that you make a smart investment with objective expertise. Her intuitive nature and finger-on-the-pulse knowledge of the current market supply will serve you well in finding the perfect place to call home.
Nicole's specialties include:
Nicole Verlotta was outstanding from start to finish. She helped my wife and I find exactly what we wanted and always helped us with any questions or concerns. She was professional, compassionate, and caring. She went above and beyond and for that we are thankful and very happy with the home we purchased!
Nicole has helped me selling a house and buying a condo!! She was not only knowledgeable and helpful in both instances, but accepted my input when I requested anything! Her knowledge of the market value in both instances and right on and was much appreciated!! I would recommend to anyone needing a realtor!! Bought condo September 2018 and sold house April 2019!
Nicole is professional, honest, kind, hardworking, and effective. She went above and beyond any reasonable expectations a client could have. I'm a relocation client, so I couldn't be present to tour condos when I needed to be. Without any hesitation, Nicole happily went and looked at places for me, provided FaceTime or audio tours, etc. Nicole always had candid and helpful feedback. With her help, we found a beautiful place. Thank you, Nicole. You are a wonderful business partner and, now, a friend.
Nicole just helped us close on our new home and we love it. She was recommended to us from a friend that also had a great experience and couldn't say enough great things about her. Nicole is experienced, knowledgeable and patient. She educated us on the different neighborhoods, selling points and schools. I would recommend Nicole in a heartbeat plus she's fun to hang out with. That can be important since buying or selling a home can take some time.
“Nicole helped us purchase our first home. Nicole is amazing. She is a work horse and will not give up until she has found you the home that is perfect for you! After working with several other brokers, we felt frustrated and lost hope that we would be able to buy a house. Thank goodness we found Nicole! She responds to e-mails and phone calls immediately and kept us informed throughout the entire process. As first time home buyers, we did not know much about the process and she explained things in ways that we could understand and allowed us to make informed decisions. Buying a home is the largest purchase most people will ever make and Nicole's "bed side manner" is extraordinary. She is patient and highly transparent. We are absolutely thrilled with our new home and it would not have been possible without Nicole. Nicole truly cares about her clients and it shows.”
Nicole was incredible! She was so patient and really spent the time to help me find the right place. The reason I have my home is because she added it to one of our showings since she spent the time to understand what I was looking for. She is attentive to detail, and quick to respond. She takes care of you from the start. I have already referred her to other people!
Nicole was extremely helpful and patient in helping us find our ideal home. Once we had our sights on the one we wanted she was extremely thorough with the process of purchase. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She was absolutely wonderful!!
Nicole was AWESOME at helping me find the home of my dreams...and I'm pretty picky with very specific needs. Since I work from home sometimes, and produce music and videos, I needed enough space to create sets and recording rooms if needed, on the fly. So space was a huge issue, considering my very, very limited budget. Since I'm also into architecture and design, I needed to find a beautiful space that could showcase some of my art pieces. Since most of my clients are in the suburbs, I also needed a place to park my car. And, since I have cats, I needed an outdoor space they could enjoy. Space, affordability, aesthetics, parking and a backyard - are you serious!? Not to mention my crazy schedule.... despite my picky needs AND lack of availability, NICOLE MADE IT HAPPEN. She was always there to provide advice...LITERALLY, at any time of day. She knew how much I wanted to customize my space on a budget, so she always had great recommendations of people I could work with. She made the process go smoothly, so much so, that my lender even said that this was the first time she had worked with someone who clearly was on-top-of-things, and who had my best interests in mind. Even after I bought the house, Nicole has stayed in touch to make sure I'm happy with my purchase. She is fun, knowledgeable, hardworking, and nice. Keep in mind I had a seriously low budget, and she still treated me like a VIP - not only do I recommend her, I think anyone who has interacted with her would too. All my friends and even my loan officer witnessed first had how great she is at her job, and only had positive things to say. She has an extensive network of support, and clearly has a passion for her work. There is no other agent like her out there - She is one of a kind and I'm lucky to have worked with her.
As a first time buyer I had no idea about the process & everything that goes into it. Nicole was unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable the entire time explaining everything in a way that made sense to me. We were also able to close for way less than the initial asking price which was just an added bonus. Thank you Nicole!!!
Fantastic!! A++ work. Nicole Verlotta consistently exceeded our expectations. Are young ambitious individual with her finger truly on the pulse ! She was able to sell our home the first day it was listed. Would highly recommend to anyone and continue to use her in the future.
Nicole made my home-selling experience a breeze! She priced it right and was able to sell our house on the first day it was listed! She is friendly, knowledgeable and ambitious and I highly recommend her. She was always available and responsive throughout the whole experience. I will never use anyone else!
Nicole is knowledge and prompt. She is quick to answer any questions and has an excellent understanding of Chicagoland area. She was accommodating for showings and placed an emphasis on my unique needs.
Nicole was a pleasure to work with and made selling my home as calm a process as it could possibly be. I trusted her responsive advice which she gave without pressure and it ended up in a sale in a timeframe we were happy about. I truly felt like she was a realtor with my best interests in mind and not her own. I will recommend her to any friends or family.
She's honest, forth coming, and will always work her hardest to find you exactly what you're looking for! She's super laid back and was always willing to talk and answer all of our questions. Her patience is remarkable, it took us almost 3 years to find a home and we only ever worked with her!

I was very lucky to have found Nicole to help me with my situation. She listened to what I was looking for and had the patience to deal with my changing preferences while I got a better feel for the city and where I thought I might want to be. She made relevant suggestions and stayed in front of the fast moving Chicago rental world. She also helped me through a unique situation that involved me having to back out of one place and find another. She is very professional but personal at the same time. She truly cared about finding me the right place. I would recommend her to anyone.
Nicole did an amazing job. Our home sale was smooth, professional and fast! She understood our needs and delivered. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a new home.
