Nicole Van Parys’ path to real estate was an international affair. Originally from Belgium, Nicole’s exposure to the industry came early, as her grandfather and mother made strategic development investments across burgeoning sectors of her home country. Nicole launched her own real estate career in 1990, moving to the U.S. and establishing herself as a consummate professional with a knack for the luxury market. Now, Nicole spearheads her work as a licensed partner of Engel & Völkers’ high-end imprint and has continued to uphold her reputation as a full-service professional with a master’s expertise. What’s more, she has earned a coveted Top 3 position for Engel & Völkers’ international brand, setting her apart as an industry leader for luxury properties.
Today, Nicole is based in Westlake Village. Her service regions include California’s finest neighborhoods among Westlake Village, Lake Sherwood, Malibu, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles & beyond. Of course, Engel & Völkers’ presence extends beyond the Southern California region and specializes in partnerships with high-prestige properties and clientele, including exclusive estates and upscale country clubs throughout the region. Thus far, Nicole has managed to elicit approximately 50% of her business through repeat and referral clientele—a testament to her staying power and the memorable transactional experiences she cultivates. Nicole cites above-and-beyond service, a dynamic team, and concierge-style care as the primary drivers of her success. “As a team, we are super user-friendly,” she explains. “We do what it takes and we go beyond the call of duty. Our service is second to none. We are an amazingly service-oriented group of professionals and we make it our priority to anticipate needs before they arise. We’re connectors and we offer concierge service on our team, so people trust us and come to us for whatever they need.” Nicole also underscores Engel & Völkers’ worldwide platform as a key factor in her accomplishments. “Wherever there is luxury real estate, we are there,” she says. “Our friends and clients see us all over the world and feel part of that big team. We’re a trusted brand and people feel very comfortable working with us for whatever they need. We’re a very connected branch of offices.
When it comes to listing properties, Nicole leaves no stone unturned. Leveraging Engel & Völkers’ global platform, all properties are showcased in their finest light using professional photography, high-end touches, and an immersive listing presentation. From there, worldwide exposure and responsive communication ensure that prospective buyers are curated successfully and in short order. “We have very eager clientele who appreciate efficiency,” Nicole says. “Our listings are high-end and our clientele are high-end. They want the job done right away and done efficiently. That’s how we work.”
To give back to the communities they call home, Nicole and her team support worthy causes, such as the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. The Engels & Völkers brand is also a major supporter of Santa Barbara’s polo scene and invites their clientele to spectacular events that often fundraise for charitable organizations. In her remaining free hours beyond the office, Nicole most enjoys time spent with loved ones, international travel, and visits to the scenic California coastline.
As for the road ahead, Nicole’s trajectory confidently continues upward. As the Engel & Völkers brand continues to expand across the globe, particularly in California, Nicole will oversee the opening of three additional offices in the months to come. She is also expanding her service areas, diversifying her network, & further maximizing her professional value and insight for clients.
Now, with nearly three decades of hands-on experience and an ambitious outlook on the path ahead, Nicole Van Parys considers what she has come to value most about her career in real estate: the people she has met along the way. “I really love and enjoy working with my clients,” she reflects. “I love my branch and my staff—we’re a very positive and energetic group. Every single day in this business is different, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to do what I love to do.”
