About Nicola L. E.

Born in Montreal, and bilingual, Nicola's passion for construction and historic preservation spurred her to enter real estate and join the best, Douglas Elliman. Having sold over $150 million worth of advertising, marketing and sponsorship services for French and English luxury, home décor and lifestyle clients, she now applies her effective “seek first to understand all the details important to my customer" philosophy to meet her buyers’ and sellers’ real estate needs.

“Successfully selling a listing or finding a fabulous new living space for my clients is a privilege. Excellent service, thorough research, open communication, vetting of product to ensure it's the right fit before I show and seamless execution of details are what I offer to ensure your satisfaction, and close your dream deal."

Nicola's former superiors - now politicians in Canada - said she was “born to” work with people and that she possesses a diplomatic nature of the highest order. Nicola is loyal beyond measure, kind and compassionate and, true to her word – the ideal real estate partner. She loves the hunt and will leave no stone unturned to search to achieve your unique and highly personal real estate needs.

After a lengthy career as an advertising and media management Vice President for Canada's largest communications company who relocated her to New York to launch their U.S. ad sales office, Nicola later founded a boutique firm" Luxury Media Sales" to enhance her offerings to clients.

Currently spending her time between Manhattan and East Hampton, Nicola works with entrepreneurs, creative thinkers, multi generational buyers and individuals in transition who expect total confidentiality from their realtor. Whether you are buying for the first time or selling a prized property, she can help navigate first to market opportunities in both Manhattan and in the hamlets and villages of the Hamptons.

Nicola gained valuable experience serving on her co-op Board in Tribeca heading the Sales and Sublet Committee for a number of years making sales packages a breeze to prepare. In the Hamptons, Nicola's knowledge of zoning, C of O's, surveys, building regulations, rental registries and more serves her clients extremely well.

Personally, she is an accomplished athlete, philanthropist and worldwide traveler. Among her accolades, Nicola is a NASM certified personal trainer, athlete and marathon runner. She is an obstacle course racer who proudly qualified for and ran in the elite heat of 300 women worldwide at the Spartan World Championships in Lake Tahoe. While exploring the world, Nicola trekked the Great Wall of China for a week raising funds for amfAR.
