Determined. Encouraging. Informed. These are just a few words clients frequently use to describe Westside agent Nicole Bruni.
Nicole graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a psychology degree before starting an exciting career in management. After five years, she decided she wanted to work more directly with people and transitioned to real estate. Her valuable leadership and strategic skills have helped her become a well-rounded and highly sought-after agent.
She is immensely proud of her profession, as it is something she genuinely loves and looks forward to doing each day. Not only does she get to work with fantastic people, but she gets to help others in the process. For Nicole, being a realtor is a dream come true, and it all began at home.
Nicole has always been close to her family, including her parents and two brothers (one older and one younger). Entrepreneurship runs in her blood, with her father starting a company at only 27 years old and her mother graduating from USC. They instilled in her the value of hard work from a young age as they dedicated themselves to providing for Nicole and her siblings.
They have always challenged her to follow her passions and believe in what she does. Their guidance and influence have led her to become the ambitious, driven realtor she is today, and Nicole is proud to say that her parents are her best friends.
Using the values she learned at home and combining the tenets of responsibility, efficiency, and diligence with her managerial experience, Nicole ushered forth a new era in her life in real estate and hasn’t looked back since.
One of her favorite parts of her job is the educational process that goes into every client interaction. She genuinely loves to teach buyers about the real estate industry, especially as it can be overwhelming and stressful at times. By guiding them through each step with tenderness, reassurance, and persistence, Nicole gets to fulfill her true passion of being a home matchmaker. Seeing someone light up when they find their dream home is unlike any other feeling, and it’s one Nicole loves to chase.
When working with Nicole and her team, clients can anticipate a diverse, well-balanced group of people standing behind them every step of the way. Having people from different backgrounds working together unites differing perspectives and creates a more fulfilling decision-making process. Her team works dutifully to build authentic, long-lasting relationships with builders and clients alike by being effective communicators and upholding a professional and supportive work ethic.
On the weekends, you’ll almost always find Nicole enjoying her unlimited beach access to view the vibrant sunsets and sunrises. She also likes to explore the many hikes meandering through the Westside. Most of her hobbies revolve around active activities like volleyball, camping, cooking, home improvement projects, running, skiing, and snowboarding! Nicole thrives on Santa Monica’s energy. There’s so much to love about the city; from the relaxed, laidback beach lifestyle to the diverse dining scene, there are always fantastic restaurants to visit and new ones opening along the waterfront.
