I’m a World Traveler who loves people, holistic modalities, Languages, Culture and food.. Lot’s of food! I love cooking with herbs, I love spicy foods and alternate almost monthly between Vegetarian, Raw Vegan, Pescatarian and Carnivore… oy vey!
I have two grown children whom I adore and Three grand-kids that I am relishing and trying to be the COOLEST “Gla-ma” as long as possible.
I’m a bit of geek while also having moments of Brilliance (did I just say that?) Ok, a lot of a geek, especially in Universal Consciousness and How we are all CONNECTED Energetically on the planet…Content Creator, Writer, humanitarian and oh, my friends often call me a cross between “Einstein and I Love Lucy!”
I tried to do my hair like Farah Fauwcett back in the day. So now you know which generation I came from.
Anyway, as I was saying, I am a Realtor, a Nursing Facilitator, Retreat Leader, implementation coach, author, entrepreneur …
No, I am not ADD. Just MULTI-PASSIONATE, excited and enthusiastic about possibilities.
Over the years, I grew up and was educated partly in college and partly through the road of tough knocks like group homes and foster care, received a Nursing degree, Became a Realtor-Owner and lived in many countries studying with CIPS (International Property Specialists) Healers and health practitioners all while learning multiple languages. I resonate with people on a deep level all around the globe and find myself even thinking and dreaming in other languages often.. and while it is unlikely that I will ever go to The North Pole, I figure I’m culturally diverse enough to find my way no matter where I land~
Growing up, I enjoyed learning new languages, meeting new people, studying healing and health modalities from several different angles depending on the country I was in – it taught me how the same facts can be viewed from such diverging perspectives.
I wish Divergent existed back then. I would have been the cool kid, instead of the one sticking out.
For gainful employment in the corporate world, I held roles in Nursing and owned my own Real Estate company; Mortgage Loan Officer and High level Sales, Time Shares, Nursing Case Management, Director of Nursing, Infusion Nursing, and Hospice Nursing amongst others.
I love to Educate myself and create stuff, especially using technology, stuff that helps others get their dreams to fruition and love working with people even more.
It helps explain my stints as a Retreat Leader, Dance teacher, wanna-be Chef, Time Share presenter and Activist at times.
My personal favourite? It’s got to be cutting through the haze, creating an actionable plan, throwing some EXPERIENCE at it, and going to town making it a reality – fast.
You see, when you move as often as I have, you develop certain skills: you learn to come up to speed super quick, whether it’s blending into the new environment, figuring out local language basics or navigating new roads in search of the perfect “new foods”
I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to explore, experience and Understand on VERY deep levels the human condition we all face… and to have the ability to “cut through” the noise and help you get the immediate solutions you want.
Now, if they could just hurry up with the “World Peace” where we can all Embody BEING the change on the planet.
Unlike Complete World Peace, your Real Estate Needs don’t have to wait. A solid, actionable strategy and fast implementation are two of the key pillars of how I work.
I have spent the last 20+ years working my way up to being in the TOP 1% of designations worldwide for realtors! What does this mean? Well, simply put, it means EXPERIENCE! So, here are some fancy- Smancy letters that literally took me years to obtain and what they mean. (Blushing a bit )
Niki King, Broker
CRS (Certified Residential Property Specialist) only 4% of realtors have attained this. WHY? Because it takes successful close of transactions! This is the cream of the crop so to speak. One of the criteria is that you must have sold over $75 Million dollars of properties within a five year time period! Whew, that was quite the ride I tell you..trust me, I have seen pretty much every creative deal you can think of. lol
CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist). The CIPS Designation is the only designation of its kind in the real estate community. It’s synonymous with advanced expertise, a global perspective and distinct understanding of international real estate buyers. CIPS Agents and Brokers are aligned with the best in the business; an influential network of international real estate professionals. Less than 1% or Realtors Worldwide have this. WHY? Well, because it means you work all over the world, with many cultures, currencies and are very well travelled.
TRC (Transnational Referral Certification) is awarded by the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations (ICREA) 1% of Realtors have this designation as well. Why? well, think of it, “how many Realtors do you know doing business all around the globe?” TRC brokers are well-prepared to provide quality service to buyers with international real estate interests. The certification is paramount in generation of international leads, especially for Realtors® working in second home and resort markets as well as foreign Investors. Earning the TRC goes hand-in-hand with earning the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS).
CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist). Recognized as the mark of accomplishment in luxury real estate markets around the world, the Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designation assures affluent homebuyers and real estate investors that the agents who have earned it have the knowledge, experience, competence, and confidence they require.
