Guided by her entrepreneurial mindset and independent spirit, Nikki Kofkin is tireless in her pursuit of excellence. As a real estate broker for @properties Christie’s International Real Estate with over five years of experience, Kofkin serves buyers, sellers, investors and renters within Chicagoland. Earning her license when she was 22 years old, Kofkin realized the extent of her interest in real estate during her senior year of college when discovering Bigger Pockets, a real estate website geared towards building passive income with rental properties and flipping homes. “I would browse forums and articles for hours absorbing information like a sponge; it became my passion,” she shares.
A native of Glenview, Kofkin attended the New Trier school system and completed her undergraduate degree in journalism at Indiana University, where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. “The connections I made in high school and college and the network I built in the Midwest are the primary sources of my business,” she says.
With 102 5-star reviews on @properties, 50 of which are published on Zillow, Kofkin upholds a customer-service model built on responsiveness, individualized attention, efficiency and empathy. “My desire to develop intimate connections has played an instrumental role in growing my business,” says Kofkin. “I don’t just strive to be successful — I am determined to provide an enjoyable and comfortable experience for my clients, no matter their needs and goals.”
In 2021, Kofkin successfully managed and advised 46 transactions while renovating her newly purchased three-unit building in Lincoln Square, which she partially rented out upon completion and also resides.
Kofkin recently adopted her dog, Honey, through the foster program with One Tail At a Time, and in her off time enjoys salsa dancing, playing ultimate frisbee, traveling and exploring the city’s comedy and music scenes.
