Nicholas Co. provides expert counseling and consultation services to individual and corporate clients, including developers, investors, lenders, law firms and governmental agencies. These services include real estate-related litigation support and expert witness consulting and testimony, dispute analysis, broker standard of care, and fiduciary responsibility and identification of potential experts. The Counselors of Real Estate (CRE) define counseling as “providing competent, disinterested and unbiased advice on diversified problems in the broad field of real estate.” This advice is not off-the-cuff, intuitive, gratuitous or impulsive, but rather is arrived at through careful investigation, discussion and deliberation.

Nick Nicholas is a CRE-designated member of The Counselors of Real Estate, the professional consulting affiliate of the National Association of Realtors. The CRE organization was founded in 1953 to establish professional standards for a preeminent group of individuals who provide expert independent real estate advice. CREs are seasoned practitioners whose membership is by invitation only and who are the industry’s most respected source for professional advice on all types of projects and properties.

A CRE brings to each assignment a broad range of experience in the field of real estate, as well as technical competency in more than one real estate specialty. Unlike management, appraisal or brokerage, counseling is not a discipline but a process. While objective in analysis, the CRE directs his efforts toward the client’s best interest through evaluation of options, advocacy of the client’s interests and development and execution of appropriate strategies.
