About Nicole Plaxen
Director of Sales, Luxury Estates
Nicole developed her real estate skills with one of the world’s most legendary luxury real estate figures: her mentor, Sally Forster Jones. Over the last decade, Nicole, alongside Sally, has played a significant role in taking the SFJ Group to $5 billion+ in sales. She has participated in over 1,500 transactions including stratospheric sales such as the Spelling Manor for $85,000,000 and Minecraft creator Markus Persson’s Trousdale estate for $70,000,000.
Working in this high-profile environment, Nicole has gained priceless experience and exceptional leadership skills, perfected the art of negotiation, and has personally acquired a roster of clients packed with professional athletes and other high net worth individuals from around the globe.
Her confident skill in navigating the most complex transactions, along with her extensive knowledge in real estate contracts, has earned the admiration and trust of her prestigious clientele. Because her highest priority is protecting her buyers and sellers, she treats the full escrow process as a continuous negotiation in which she never stops working for her clients.
Nicole draws on a rare combination of intuition, creativity, and sharp business skills to consistently close deals. Her involvement in thousands of inspections has given her a keen understanding of property conditions, a critical advantage in guiding her clients through the escrow process.
Her love of real estate was born long before she joined the SFJ Group. As a child, she watched in fascination as her mother successfully bought and flipped homes throughout Los Angeles. Ten years later, she began her career as a title rep and later a mortgage account executive. In 2007, she left the mortgage industry to pursue her passion for real estate sales.
