Top Agent Magazine – Nikki Hessami
Since getting her Realtor’s license in 2018, Nikki Hessami has already built a reputation as someone with her finger on the pulse of Toronto, and as an agent who will always put her client’s best interests first. “I never worry about what I’m going to make at the end of a transaction,” Nikki explains. “I put myself in my clients’ shoes and then advise them based on how well a property matches their needs.” It’s the kind of service Nikki valued herself when she moved to Ontario in 2014. Formerly a university instructor of architecture in Iran, Nikki decided to pursue a career that would allow her to combine her enjoyment of beautiful architecture with her passion for helping people, and for the last three years she has been offering a service built on the core values of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance.
That commitment, her hard work, and her deep knowledge of the industry has garnered Nikki an ever increasing number of referral clients as she delivers superior service to the Greater Toronto area with Home Leader Realty. As a pre-construction condo specialist, she has helped buyers from all over the world move to Toronto or to find the right properties for their investment portfolio. “I’m there for my clients every step of the way,” says Nikki. “And I can help them through the process in whatever way they need. I’ve even helped people purchase properties remotely, taking them on showings via video calls.” Last year Nikki closed 12 transactions, and has 18 year-to-date sales in 2021. If the high praise she receives in her clients’ reviews is any indication, those numbers are going to continue climbing every year. One satisfied client summed up her time with Nikki like this: “My experience with Nikki has been nothing short of amazing. She made the process of navigating Toronto’s intimidating real estate market straightforward….Her expertise, professionalism and personable demeanour really sets her apart. I would highly recommend Nikki and plan on utilizing her services in the future.”
Nikki treats clients like they are family, which means protecting them from bad investments as much as helping them find something they like. Her transparency is one of the things that sets her apart from many other agents. “I educate my clients about the market and the process, and I’m very honest in giving my opinion about a property or the terms they are being offered, because my concern is for their profit and not just a closed transaction. People appreciate that, and they will keep coming back to you when you demonstrate that kind of care.” When she’s not working, Nikki likes to hang out with friends and family, meditate, and stay connected with the many people in her sphere through social media. As for the future of her business, she hopes to continue growing her volume by offering the highest-quality service in the industry. Eventually she would like to build a team, sharing her knowledge and methods with new agents in order to help even more people with their homeownership and investment goals.
