As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Top Agent Nicolette Kuebeler of Transaction Realty in Cleveland, Ohio is passionate about helping the most vulnerable in our society with the often-convoluted process of selling a home. She also plays a vital role in assisting her many clients with relocation to assisted living facilities, and is ready, willing and able to shoulder the responsibility for all the myriad details such late-in-life challenges present.
Focusing primarily on listings, Nicolette services clients of all ages, though her passion for assisting seniors has pushed her to the forefront of her profession, and she was recently awarded the Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) President’s Sales Club Pinnacle Award for her overall sales performance. A former manufacturing sales employee, Nicolette obtained her real estate license in 2007. “I didn’t feel like I was helping anyone,” she recalls, “and I didn’t feel like I was making a difference in anyone’s life. Working with seniors became my passion. I knew that I wanted to help families figure out what to do when their home was no longer a safe place to live. Not only did I want to provide resources, such as Assisted Living guidance, but to provide a service that would take the stress out of a very difficult time, finding solutions to making that move more manageable. When I found out there was a designation called the SRES, I decided that would be my niche market, working with seniors and helping families.”
Now with more than a solid decade of experience under her belt, Nicolette has developed a reputation as a Realtor who can be trusted to provide honest, conscientious and dedicated assistance to all of her clients. Selling primarily in Cuyahoga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, Summit and Wayne Counties, Nicolette will assist clients within a one-hour driving radius from her home Cleveland’s suburbs. “Wherever there’s a senior situation or a family that needs help, I’ll drive there,” she says.
Nicolette works hard to protect her clients during all phases of the transaction process, and to that end she eschews traditional marketing techniques such as holding open houses. “The last thing I want is for a house to be broken into. A yard sign is a red flag, it’s an invitation to danger. I don’t think a lot of Realtors focus on safety. Locating buyers through other advertising efforts, such as having a well-defined local social media presence, has served my clients well throughout my career.”
With 90% of her business based on repeat clients and referrals, Nicolette is clearly doing something right. “I do very little advertising,” she explains. “I’m pretty well-known in the community for working with seniors, anywhere from assisted living to home care companies to senior living companies, everyone knows I do this work and they reach out to me and send clients my way. I’ll try to help anyone who reaches out to me, even if they’re looking for a rental I have agents I’ll refer them to.”
When asked what might account for this staggering level of client loyalty, Nicolette responds: “It’s just about being honest, and treating everyone like family. I like to put myself in other’s shoes. Everyone knows I’m going to give them an honest opinion.” Nicolette is also highly proficient with the usually-complex process of estate sales. “I’m a probate expert,” she explains, “and a CPE (Certified Probate Expert), so I work with a lot of attorneys and people who have estates that need to be sold. Those can be tricky.”
When she’s not working, Nicolette enjoys spending time with her husband and their three sons. She also is active in her community, working with a non-profit Cleveland development company and volunteering her time with animal rescue efforts.
“What I like most about my job,” says Nicolette, “is knowing that I’m helping families, and that I have the kind of job I love to do. I go to bed every night and I feel good about having made a difference in someone’s life. That’s an amazing feeling.”
