Nicole Slade

Buyers Agent

Nicole Slade is a Buyers Agent at Empower Wealth, with over 16 years’ industry experience, both personally and professionally.

Nicole’s curiosity for real estate started at University, where she was a student of Economics and Finance. Her passion only grew and Nicole took the plunge in 1999 and bought her first property, a unit in a small character block in Cammeray, on Sydney’s lower north shore. This proved to be the first of many personal purchases.

Professionally, Nicole holds a number of qualifications, including: a Bachelor of Economics (UNSW), a Graduate Diploma in Human Resources (Deakin) and a Certificate IV in Property Services (REINSW).

Nicole’s career has traversed two professions (real estate and human resources), with her experience gained across multiple sectors: media, financial services, telecommunications and data technology. Nicole believes there is a strong synergy between human resources and real estate – both being ‘people’ businesses. She is outcome focused with great intuition, relationship building and negotiation skills.

Nicole has the good fortune to have lived and worked in a number of Australia’s major economic and lifestyle cities including: Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne. This gives her great insight into the intricacies of various markets. Additionally, Nicole has successfully invested in real estate in each of these locations – making her a true ‘borderless investor’.

Prior to joining Empower Wealth Nicole lived and worked as a Buyers Agent in Brisbane and in her spare time ‘added value’ to a couple of her investment properties in Brisbane through renovation, another passion of Nicole’s.

Nicole now calls Melbourne home and loves the lifestyle, character and food culture associated with this great city. She draws on her interstate and own property investment experience to help others achieve their lifestyle and retirement outcomes through bricks and mortar.

Thanks Nicole for a great process and outcome. Your attention to our needs was superb. We felt totally engaged and part of the process from the outset. Thanks very much.

Nicole was the fourth buyers agent I have engaged over the last 10 years and definitely the best! After reviewing my brief to purchase in Melbourne, Nicole was able to source properties that met my criteria while exhibiting in depth knowledge of the different type of properties in each of the locations that we considered and eventually shortlisted.  I especially love the way Nicole approaches her craft including the way she presents properties under consideration in an email format that is clear, concise and very informative. I would then converse with her over the pros and cons of each property in a process of elimination before arriving at my preferred property. Prior to auction we also discussed the price we expected the property to sell for and the maximum price we agreed to pay without any regrets. I then used Nicole’s auction skills and she was able to purchase my property $1 above the next highest bidder which was much appreciated. I was also impressed with the set up post auction and in the lead up to settlement. Nicole and Mitch ensured that there was a clear line of communication between my mortgage broker, conveyancer and Empower Wealth so that important aspects ranging from the deposit, building insurance, lending and conveyancing was never overlooked. Finally Nicole was able to recommend a great property management team that conducted the pre-settlement inspection with a checklist to ensure things were in order prior to settlement as well as vetting a list of potential tenants and providing me with feedback on them. I highly recommend Nicole as she is not only a great buyers agent but has a warm and friendly personality which made me very relaxed when conversing with her. I intend to use Empower Wealth for my next purchase and I will insist on having Nicole source my next investment property.

Nicole and the team at Empower Wealth were a pleasure to deal with and made the research and buying process such an easy and seem less experience. She was very knowledgeable, well researched and on auction day was a gun! I would highly recommend Nicole and the team at empower wealth and would gladly use their buyers agent services again!. Thanks for all the hard work!

We recently engaged Nicole Slade as our Buyer’s Agent. Nicole managed to purchase an investment property in Melbourne on our behalf and the whole transaction could not have gone smoother. Initially, we were a little apprehensive to purchase a property interstate, but as soon as we spoke to Nicole we felt confident that she was the BA for us. Nicole kept us well informed at all times, we were given updates regularly. The properties were thoroughly inspected, providing us with photos/videos and ample information and statistics making our decision an easy one. As well as this Nicole is well respected by the local real estate agents. We cannot thank Nicole enough. We are very happy and confident with our purchase and would definitely use Nicole’s expertise again.

Nicole was exceptional in working with us to buy our first investment property. The process was made simple and stress free. I would recommend Empower Wealth to anyone else looking to buy a property. An exceptional service.
