Nick Agostinelli has a long and successful history in the world of sales, and he knows how to deliver for his customers. Since 2014, Nick has sold more than $400 million in real estate, and REAL Trends has ranked him in the top 1 percent of agents nationwide, as advertised in the Wall Street Journal. He is a model real estate agent who prides himself on his ability to consummate and facilitate transactions with extraordinary customer service.
Before coming to Elegran, Nick excelled in high-end luxury vehicle sales, working with a focused client group of professional athletes and their financial advisors, and pairing them with luxury brands such as Porsche, Maybach, and Mercedes-Benz. During that time, Nick was also part of a very successful silent auction committee for University Hospitals and 5 Star Sensation, once again showing that his passion for sales shines through in everything he does. Within 5 months of his real estate career, Nick closed a $30,000/month rental transaction and in February 2014, closed one of the top sales of the year in NYC with a penthouse at 135 East 79th St. for $23.4M. Nick's quick rise to the top of the brokerage community is evidence of his dedication to his career.
Born and raised 30 minutes west of Cleveland, Nick excelled as an all-around athlete, particularly in baseball and track, and he was ranked nationally in the 100-meter dash. He attended college at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio, now Baldwin Wallace University, where he majored in Finance and Accounting. Nick has enjoyed living in different parts of the city, from the Upper West to the Upper East side, and he currently lives with his wife and two kids in Westchester. He frequently takes the time to travel, snowboard, enjoys going to museums and is a devoted University of Michigan fan.
Nick is leaps and bounds one of the best agents I have ever worked with. He was able to rent my apartment in one weekend! I couldn't recommend him higher!David M.
Nick was incredibly knowledgeable and really made the entire house hunting and purchase process truly seamless. My husband and I were very impressed with his high level of professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone!Kate P.
Working with Nick was simply a pleasure. His advice is genuine, his professionalism is immaculate, and his experience and connections will place you far ahead of the curve. I am confident that you will not be disappointed with him. He has gone above and beyond when helping us find our first home and still regularly checks in with us years later. A true professional and just a fantastic person.David R.
I would like to thank you very, very much for your excellent support to me in finding a home in the West Village! Specifically I want to thank you for your flexibility and willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ when it came to the very difficult behavior of the landlord’s representative, which entailed you coming up with some new ways to make the signing and payments happen in time.Jessica J.
Nick is highly competent, trustworthy and knew exactly what I was looking for in a home. He always listened, made himself available and was always responsive. He would offer suggestions when looking for a property but always took my thoughts and views into consideration. I highly recommend him.Linda
Having Nick by our side to help us find our new apartment was incredibly helpful. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and his experience really shows. By first asking us about our requirements and interests, Nick was able to successfully match us up with apartments in our neighborhoods of interest, and help us to really narrow down our search. He was responsive, flexible, understanding, and personable, which made what can often be a stressful time, an overall exciting and enjoyable experience. We will certainly reach out to Nick again for future real estate needs. Thanks Nick!Meagan S. and Damian C.
Nick is very personable and friendly. In the end you can sense that he genuinely cares that you are happy with such a major decision. He has great knowledge of the various neighborhoods throughout this vast city. It is not easy finding an apt. here, but Nick helps minimize the stress by clearly explaining the steps in which to succeed. I will be sure to recommend him to any family or friends in the market.Joseph G.
Nick demonstrated deep market knowledge and was exceptionally helpful in terms of finding apartments that matched our criteria as well as negotiating offers for us. I plan on using Nick for all my real estate needs going forward.Michael H. and Amy P.
Nick, I wanted to thank you .... Yet again...for your over-the-top gift basket...the wine was remarkable as were the goodies that went with it...We were fortunate to find you when we did for a place, even my wife says, is remarkable...thanks for making that possible.Neil
Nick, We can't thank you enough. You have been such a pleasure to work with and have been beyond helpful in our search. I will recommend you to all my friends and family and I am sure our paths will cross again. Thanks again for everything!Keri
We have really appreciated your hard-work, enthusiasm (most NY brokers are extremely jaded), lightening quick responses and willingness to listen and work with us in our search for a larger apartment to accommodate our growing family, and will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone we know in search of an apartment (and we normally don't recommend brokers!). If ever the time came for us to move back into the city, we will definitely give you a ring.Jennifer and Howard
Nick, you are amazing!! I will be referring everyone who even mentions the word they want to move to you! You really made this process much less painful than I thought and I'm very appreciate. Thank you so much!Laura C.
Nick, we love the new apartments and are finally getting settled in. You’re the reason we’re there and can’t thank you enough for your help and timing.Dan and Melissa S.
I first met Nick when looking for new apartments. I was so impressed by his professionalism and knowledge of the market that I decided to hire him to sell my apartment. Nick had it listed within days and had the first offer in 6 days with an accepted offer on the 10th day. His focus and dedication to his clients is clear when you see results like that. The process could not have gone smoother and, with Nick handling it, I had nothing to worry about. In addition to selling my apartment, I also worked with him to find my new apartment. Without giving many specifics, Nick knew what I wanted and found me a new apartment in 2 days. I have recommended him to multiple friends and will continue to do so. I found his work to not only be impressive, but I also found him to be of high integrity; which is sometimes hard to find in the NYC real estate world. Nick only had my best interests in mind when working for me and for that I am extremely grateful! We have since closed on the sale of my apartment and I plan to use Nick in the future for any real estate transactions I might consider. I highly recommend him if you are looking to buy, sell, or rent.Marni M.
Nick was superb in helping me find an apartment in Manhattan. I recently did a bi-coastal move from California to NYC, and Nick made looking for an apartment stress-free. He is very personable and listened to what my needs and wants were for an apartment. He showed me several places and I was able to sign a lease the first day looking. Nick is on time, listens to his clients, and follows up better than any other broker I had spoken to prior to working with him--he is there for his clients. I would definitely recommend Nick when searching for an apartment in NYC. He made the process seamless and easy.Dawn F.
