Hi, I’m Nikki

I’m here to make the world of New York City real estate a lot less frustrating for you. Find out more about me and what I can do for you. 

What My Clients Have to Say

  • Nikki is not just a broker, she is an ally to and advocate for her clients.  When I bought my first home, a co-op in Sutton Place, Nikki guided me through the process, never tiring of my seemingly endless questions. She also helped me negotiate a great price.  Years later, when I took a job across the country, Nikki was the only person I trusted to help me find a tenant.  Nikki once again held my hand through and found me the perfect renter.  I can’t imagine navigating the New York real estate market without having an expert like Nikki by my side.

  • Nikki was a consummate professional. She walked me through every step and every decision. No high pressure tactics; I felt that each decision was my own – assisted by good data and friendly, knowledgeable recommendations. – Seller, 140 East 28th Street

    Alexis Hoag (buyer)
  • It was wonderful having Nikki Thomas as my real estate agent the City. I was looking for an apartment in NYC and needed it ASAP. Her knowledge of the areas, and her guidance was perfect. I would highly recommend her services and would use her again for any real estate purchase or sale in NY. Buying apartments in NYC is a very complicated thing, and she was extremely helpful in managing to get all forms required for my coop. Thank you Nikki!!
