A master of real estate with 12 years of experience, Ray Nicolas, a real estate broker at Baird & Warner, aims to give his clients peace of mind as they navigate the stressful transition to homeownership. Specializing in working with first-time buyers, move-up buyers, investors and people looking to relocate, he works tirelessly to find his clients their forever homes.
“My business style is relaxed and easygoing. My main goal is to make sure my clients are engaged and excited about the homebuying and selling process,” he says. “There’s no sugarcoating when it comes to my business. My business is built by trust and straight-up honesty. I offer my years of knowledge and dedication to all my clients.”
With a lifelong interest in real estate, Nicolas decided to begin a career in the industry in 2009. Shaped by a childhood spent moving around, he accumulated a great comprehension of the Chicagoland area. This diverse expertise gives him an edge in the competitive Illinois market.
Nicolas is currently a member of the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors, the Illinois Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. Ever patient and knowledgeable about the real estate market, he gets a majority of his business from referrals, marketing and networking.
Easy to talk to and always impeccably groomed, Nicolas reports that when he isn’t working for his clients, he is working for his community. He enjoys volunteering at local food banks, attending community events and volunteering at his daughter’s school. He’s always looking to broaden his horizons and also likes attending new and exciting activities, and vacationing with his family.
