About Nicole Brende

Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty Circle of Excellence & Hall of Fame member Nicole Brende was born into a real estate family in Santa Monica, CA. Raised in Las Vegas, Nicole she got to Texas as fast as she could and earned a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Nicole grew up in a real-estate oriented family. Her father develops award winning master-planned communities in Houston and her mother and other family members practice real estate in Nevada, California, and Idaho. "I grew up touring properties and job sites," says Nicole. "I knew one day I would be helping clients with their real estate needs and I could not wait. In fact, it's in my blood."

Prior to her career in residential real estate, Nicole was a professional on-camera television host and producer for 10 years. Her programs included “Hot On! Homes” for KPRC Local 2, “Designing America” on HDNet, and “Designing Texas,” all of which kept her in contact with various facets of real estate. “I really enjoyed showcasing the beautiful homes and educating buyers about the current inventory as well as the quality of the builders we featured,” says Nicole. She was also a live television news reporter /producer and a former co-founder/publisher of one of Houston’s first online society magazines. As a Realtor, Nicole uses her media and marketing skills to get “top dollar” for her sellers.

Nicole attributes her success to dedication to her clients, a deep love of real estate, and, most importantly, building strong relationships that result in repeat sales and client referrals to family and friends. She believes that one of the best aspects of residential real estate sales is the lifestyle she is able to present to so many individuals and families, and the personal satisfaction she receives from helping them to make a major change in their lives. According to Nicole, “a home is the one place we get to personalize and make our very own and finding the right neighborhood matters.”

An excellent listener and communicator, Nicole is always accessible to her clients. She understands marketing, knows how to deliver and follow through, and stays current with the Houston real estate market. Nicole often finds homes for her buyers that are not yet on the market, and she is an excellent resource for homeowners who are considering a sale. She is also certified to work with relocation buyers, a specialized skill much in demand in a fast-moving city like Houston.

Nicole is proud to support her community. She serves on numerous charitable host committees and stays active with the SMU Houston alumni chapter, Alpha Chi Omega sorority, and DAR Lady Washington Chapter. Nicole is a guest writer for local publications and writes her own blog, the "Trende Brende Report". When not working, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband & family, traveling, and attending the Houston Symphony, Theater Under the Stars, charity events, and completing creative projects around the house.

RELATIONSHIP: Nicole worked together on a real estate transaction
Jan. 10th, 2022

I recently worked with Nicole on a real estate transaction as the lender for her buyer. She was excellent to work with! She represented her buyer very well in a quick closing, and was quick to communicate. We were able to close this transaction in 7 business days! Highly recommend working with Nicole.
