Nicole Steel

Nicole has a unique background in global commercial real estate and has been a licensed Real Estate Salesperson and Broker since 2002 in New York and Connecticut. Nicole is a dedicated and proactive and professional “Raising the Bar” in the local real estate market. Nicole appreciates that her clients expect more from their Realtor, and she has created a culture where her team truly puts the “Client first, Always.” The team takes pride in providing an unparalleled level of experience, professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail.

Steel Re Partners takes their clients’ goals seriously in selling or buying a property.  The firm’s clients rely on them to guide them through each aspect of the process, from staging to closing and structuring more complex transactions.

Nicole Steel has been working in real estate for over 15 years, with over $2.6 billion of transaction experience. Ms. Steel successfully transitioned into local real estate sales in 2010 following a successful career as a global commercial real estate executive with Newmark Knight Frank and CB Richard Ellis in Investment Sales and Management. In this role, she managed a team of 15 on 5 continents, traveled 75% globally, and advised on the buying and selling of real estate to institutional real estate investors and private wealth investors.  Ms. Steel has assembled multi-million dollar real estate portfolios on behalf of buyers, sold trophy assets and advised on multiple development projects. Ms. Steel’s approach to the local real estate market encompasses the same aspect of professionalism and skills.

Ms. Steel focuses on luxury real estate sales and believes no matter your net worth, real estate is an asset class in a portfolio, and should be examined as such from all perspectives. Nobody likes to spend frivolously, where they won’t see a return or at least have a stable asset over time. Due to her investment sales experience, Ms. Steel has a keen sense of what may provide an opportunistic component.

Nicole Steel has a discerning eye and a high level of taste to recognize luxury, value or help clients envision possibilities. The firm’s clients are intelligent, highly successful, well-traveled, educated and sophisticated and she enjoys working with them.

With a career in public relations and many relationships in the media prior to real estate, Nicole Steel’s expertise and listings have been featured in national and international press, including NBC’s Open House TV, The Financial Times, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as well as many local publications.

Much like many of her clients, Nicole transitioned to Fairfield County via Manhattan following an exhaustive search covering Westchester and Fairfield Counties.  It was then she decided it could be better with one point of contact throughout the search.

She adores her two young boys and her husband, Tyler, whom is a corporate finance executive, having been a CFO for a General Electric Capital business.   She is first generation American of European decent and a EU citizen, as are her children. Real estate is in the family blood, as her brother Alex is a real estate developer in Europe and her family has a long history in real estate investment.

Ms. Steel looks forward to discussing your real estate goals with you.
