A consummate salesman. Nicholas grew up in northern Westchester and relocated to the North Fork, from Greenwich. CT. over a decade ago at the invitation of a cousin - a local vineyard owner. Having always enjoyed the region - and more specifically Southold Town- for its abundance of natural beauty, quality of life, along with the nascent 'wine culture'- it was an ideal fit for him.
Licensed as a realtor first in the 1980's, Nicholas was active in the Hudson Valley region finding weekend retreats for city residents, mainly in the rural communities of Millbrook, Rhinebeck and historic Poughkeepsie. After September 11th, Nicholas focused his sales career on North Fork real estate working with a 'start-up' agency and then partnering with Joan Bischoff van Heemskerck's Buyers Connections Realty, prior to being selected by Town & Country to come on board. Nich has evolved into one of the most effective brokers on the North Fork, dominating in farms, waterfront properties, commercial investments and the full scope of North Fork opportunities.
