Baird & Warner
Nicole Flores’ No. 1 goal? To make real estate easier for her clients. “Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest moments in a person’s life,” says Flores, a broker associate with Baird & Warner. “I get it and I want to make it as smooth and seamless as possible.”
A wife and mother of four, she knows firsthand that every family’s real estate needs are unique, and nothing makes her happier than helping others find the home that’s perfect for them. “Nicole’s success as an agent isn’t an accident,” says her managing broker Lisa Kon. “She works tirelessly, because she loves what she does. Her clients are among the most loyal I’ve ever seen, because she’s developed a process filled with care and confidence.”
Before becoming a real estate agent, Flores began her career in high school as a bank teller, and then worked her way up the ranks to branch manager and vice president. She found great joy helping people realize their financial goals then. Now she finds even greater joy helping families put down roots.
Flores attributes her success to her approachability and the open communication she brings to every transaction. She recalls expertly guiding a client through several unanticipated price reductions this past year, securing them a full-price offer in the end.
“That was challenging,” says Flores, a Certified Negotiation Expert, noting the client was going through personal challenges at the time. “But I kept a clear head and helped bring my client’s focus back to the market, and I got them the results they wanted and deserved.”
Recognized as a Top Producer in the industry in 2017, Flores represents buyers, sellers and investors in residential and commercial properties in Chicago and the suburbs. She’s also a member of Baird & Warner’s Founders Club, Everyday Edgebrook and the Chicago Association of Realtors’ Top Agent Network.
When she’s not helping Chicagoland clients find their dream home, Flores enjoys taking walks at a local forest preserve with her husband, doing yoga, having family picnics and giving back to her community. She proudly supports the Danny Did Foundation, an organization dedicated to preventing deaths caused by seizures, as well as the New Hope Food Pantry and the Henry Schueler 41 & 9, a nonprofit organization on a mission to conquer the medical challenges of pediatric leukemia.
