Nicole is passionate about property and estate planning having worked in the property industry and for various private clients for over 10 years.

She works closely with her developer clients to secure suitable properties, conduct due diligence and assist with all aspects of the transaction or development through to completion.  Nicole is intimately familiar with issues that are specific to both geographic area and the Property industry, from undermining and subsidence, heritage, unexploded ordinances and other developer issues.

With a wealth of experience in business succession, property and related issues, Nicole is able to advise clients on estate planning to ensure effective strategies are in place so their loved ones are protected.

“Every transaction should consider the longer-term goals which include strategic planning for the next generation. Ensuring your assets benefit the right persons and you don't leave any headaches behind for your loved ones is the best legacy you can leave.”
