A Colorado native, Nick knows the landscape as well as anyone. From Colorado Springs to Boulder, he has lived, worked, and attended school for over 30 years across the Colorado Front Range. Nick graduated from the University of Denver with a real estate and finance degree, making him one of only a handful of real estate agents with a 4-year degree in the field. His passion for real estate developed through years of participation in his family-owned real estate portfolio and a love for sharing his passion with others.
Being introduced to real estate through these family-owned second homes in the Front Range and mountains of Colorado plays a large role in Nick's passion for real estate. Owning these properties through some of the best and worst markets in recent history has given Nick the opportunity to experience the advantages and complexities of owning real estate. He draws on these first-hand experiences when making recommendations for his clients in an effort to ensure the best possible long-term experience and investment.
Having a real estate and finance degree has given Nick an excellent understanding of real estate as an investment. However, taking the time to understand what a successful investment means in the eyes of his individual clients is paramount. To some, success is defined as purchasing a place to call home and having an income-tax deduction. To others, building a real estate portfolio as a means of retirement income is the goal. Regardless, Nick has the skills and knowledge to assist his clients in making their venture a success.
Being educated, investment minded, local, and experienced makes Nick a great real estate agent. His empathy and understanding of what it means to be a homeowner; the commitment and the pride, is what makes him great to work with. With his assistance you will not be taking a leap of faith, but will be taking a confident step forward in your financial future.
What some of my clients have to say:
"Nick exceeded our expectations as a realtor. We decided to work with Nick as he was extremely prepared for each of our meetings, was very detailed, had a command of the market we were selling in, and a sales strategy that was based on this knowledge. This led to a sale price far above our goal. We would recommend Nick to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Boulder/Denver area."
"As a first-time homebuyer, the experience of finding and buying a home can seem both exciting and daunting. However, choosing Nick Rota as my realtor was the best decision that I made in this process! Nick was patient, thorough, and really took the time to walk with me through every step of this deal. He is incredibly knowledgeable and honest, which are qualities of utmost importance in the field of real estate. I'm in the process of moving into a home that I absolutely love, and it's all thanks to Nick! If you're looking for a hard-working, rock-star realtor, look no further. Nick is the obvious choice!"
"Working with Nick to buy our home was seamless. He accommodated our needs with our 6-month old baby while showing us homes, he suggested neighborhoods we would have never thought of, and he patiently took the time to show us and make offers on multiple homes until we found the perfect one. We couldn't have done it without him!"
Garett and Danielle
"Nick Rota was a tremendous help in selling our current home and finding a new one. He was completely organized and prepared, from the moment we discussed selling, through the closing of our new home. He was always available and patient with all of our questions, no matter how simple or complex. He truly cared about what was best for our family, instead of looking to close the first deal that came along. He discussed numerous possibilities, and let us be involved in the decision making process, when it came to selling our house. Nick also listened to every critique and concern that we had when looking at a replacement home, in order to find exactly what we wanted. His education and experience made it all easy for us. It was more like we were working with a friend, instead of an agent. If you are ready to sell or find the house of your dreams, give Nick a call!"
Jen and Jared
"I am an Australian (also a U.S. Green Card holder) who lived in Sydney Australia last year and was trying to sell my property in Golden, CO!! On top of the difficulty of selling a house from across the world, my house was wrecked by tenants who broke the lease and moved out without paying; my house was in a total mess!!
I went through several agents in Colorado, most of them were either reluctant or not competent enough to deal with this challenge; some even tried to take advantage in my distress situation. Until someone recommended me the service of Nick at Four Star Realty.
Right from the beginning Nick showed his thorough knowledge of the Colorado housing market; his competency and willingness to help me deal with this stressful situation were evidently clear. Nick took care of the repair project so efficiently that within 2 weeks he was able to find all the contractors needed and finished the repairs for my property with the most affordable prices. He ran the whole show as though he did it for his own home.
His communication is always prompt, honest and caring. I felt I could trust him 100%. Nick even went out of his way on many occasions to help me out because of my difficulty of being so far away. Most importantly he is so agreeable to work with. We were able to agree on a sale price that was considered "too high" by many other realtors at that time. Yet, during the first week on the market we had 2 offers and the house was sold to the 2nd offer at a price very close to asking. The closing took place 29 days later. Nick's helpful services and genuine kindness are very special and rare indeed in the realty business. I was so grateful I found Nick!!"
"I was looking for a Realtor in Denver and asked an old college friend, also a realtor, if he had any recommendations. He referred me to Nick Rota. I couldn't be happier with the results! Nick was patient with my requests and helped me to find the property I wanted in a short amount of time. I mean, I wasn't a very easy client. I was looking for an investment property that I could also live in. I didn't have very specific parameters on how much I could spend but I did have a desired "return" in mind. So, with his finance background, Nick was able to find me a property, in the neighborhood I wanted, that lent me a return of 9%! He communicated with the property owner through the inspection process and got me more than I expected. I have handed his card out to everyone I know because I have full faith in his abilities to help my friends find a home and protect their interests at the same time."
