Nicole Ushakoff

Realtor | DRE #01990205

Nicole Ushakoff is a native of the Monterey Peninsula and has been working in the Real Estate industry since 2002. She first started her career in the industry with Stewart Title in Sales and Marketing covering the Salinas Valley, South County as well as the Monterey Peninsula.

After the change in the Real Estate Market in 2006, Nicole decided to fill a much needed niche within the industry and started an independent Transaction Management company geared towards providing contract management and escrow coordination to the local real estate brokerages and agents.

She established the very successful Vista Marketing and Coordination Services in 2006 and due to her strong work ethic, people skills and attention to detail she brought the company from a few agent clients to over 250 agent clients and coordinated over 5000 real estate transactions.

In March of 2015, Nicole decided to sell her company and work as an in-house transaction coordinator for a local real estate team in the area while reinstating her studies to pursue and take her years of experience into the Real Estate Sales side of the business. Nicole became a full-time realtor in April of 2017 and has not looked back.

Nicole earned the ‘2017 Rookie of the Year’ award from Keller Williams Coastal Estates as well as the 2017 Monterey Herald Readers’ Choice Winner for ‘Best New Real Estate Agent in Monterey County.’ In 2018 the Monterey Herald awarded her the Readers’ Choice Winner for ‘First Runner Up Best Realtor-Monterey Peninsula.’

Nicole is married and a mother of three children. She enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering her time with various local community organizations including PacRep Theater in Carmel, where her daughters frequently perform, as well as her son’s baseball leagues and the Crohn’s & Colitis foundation to help with funding for cure research for her son and others who suffer with autoimmune diseases.

Nicole believes the most rewarding part of her job is to help her clients achieve their real estate goals. Whether it's the dreams of home ownership, selling to move closer to family, becoming a first-time investor or finding that perfect vacation home, she guides her clients every step of the way.

"Nicole and staff were great from start to finish and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. It was flawless and effortless experience. Nicole and staff kept us informed as the process progressed per phone calls and follow up emails. All paperwork was signed electronically which may it very convenient with our time.

"If you are looking for a real estate agent in the Monterey County area look no further! My husband and I were first time home buyers, and started the process very slowly and cautiously. We met Nicole about a year and a half before we purchased our home , and she stuck by us the entire time, all along knowing we weren’t really ready when we first started looking. She is patient, not the least bit pushy, knows the ins and outs of basically all real estate in the area; and is personable, kind and honest. She responded to texts, emails, and phone calls within minutes - patiently answering any question, no matter how insignificant it seemed at the time, when we did start the home buying process. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I meet looking to purchase a home in the area!"

"Great realtor! I loved working with Nicole. She is very knowledgeable and professional, which I would expect from any realtor. HOWEVER, she goes above and beyond. Nicole not only helped me during the sale of the house but also months before as I was renovating. She helped me find contractors, and gave valuable feedback regarding renovation choices. She knew what would deliver a good ROI. Nicole was proactive with any issues that arose when the house went on the market. She is VERY patient; answering all my emails, texts, and phone calls promptly. Bonus: Nicole is very friendly and has a great sense of humor."
