Nicole is the best!!! I contacted her several months before we were serious in the market--asking her to just be on the lookout in case a 2 bedroom, 2 bath because available on the beach. She kept in contact with me periodically and when we were ready, she jumped into action. Inventory was low but she found the perfect place and was always available to answer questions as the transaction moved forward. She is honest, super available, and an overall great person that we now think of as a friend. We highly recommend her and First Coast Collective!

What I particularly like about the women in First Coast Collective is that they stay in touch with customers to add continued value to their service. They provide referrals to local businesses vetted by them for services needed by homeowners and send out regular newsletters and magazines to share useful ideas. They've linked up with a woman offering financial services to further their value-added approach. That's great customer service!

Our experience with RE/MAX realtor Sarah Olson was truly a joy! So professional, dependable, trustworthy, and caring - she understood exactly what we were looking for and made sure that the process of purchasing our new home went smoothly and effortlessly as possible. We will highly recommend her to anyone!

Sarah and her team at First Coast Collective are such a pleasure to work with. I've personally sold and purchased a home with Sarah and really appreciate her years of expertise and attention to detail. If you have the pleasure of meeting her team as well, you will see how much they ENJOY helping their clients. Any time I have a real estate question, First Coast Collective is my first call.

I cannot say enough about Sarah Olson and her team at Remax! They were fabulous to work with both on the sale of our Nocatee home and purchase of a our new Nocatee home. They understand the market, are customer service oriented and Have great follow through. As a real estate investor I have worked with many brokers over the years, and can say without hesitation this team is top notch!

We were simply 'exploring the area' and wandered into First Collective to ask if someone was willing to spend an hour to show us 2 gated communities we could not see on our own. Nicole said, ' no issue, i will take you' knowing we had no intention of buying. She immediately, set us up to see 3 gated Nocatee communities.
Nicole and First Coast Collective were professional, knowledgeable, immensely helpful, supportive, held our hand through and past closing. Most importantly, Nicole immediately 'read' my wife and her needs.
When we did begin looking, Nicole didn't 'throw' things at us. She knew what we wanted and only sent us very close 'fits'. One morning, a house popped up that fit closely; she immediately emailed it to us. The listing had 15 showings on day 1 and several offers that evening. We made an offer just from the listing and a virtual tour. Nicole and First Coastal worked until 9:45 at night putting together a 'value' offer (not just price). By 10:00 AM , with their guidance, we won the offer over 3 other bidders and were under contract by 1:00 PM. No other house since has come on market that met our goals.
Nicole and her team led us through financing, inspections, and other matters making the closing process a dream.
Nicole and First Coastal are FIRST Class and your partner all the way.

Nicole was a wonderful advocate and incredibly knowledgeable resource for us as we purchased our first home in the area. She was patient and kind with our little ones when they had to accompany us to showings, and she communicated so well on our behalf with the multiple parties involved in our purchase - from the seller’s agent to the mortgage/loan team - and everyone she interacted with had nothing but glowing words to say about her. Her team is wonderful, and I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for personalized help finding a home or rental.

Sarah is the BEST! . Sometimes selling your home takes creativity and determination. We had a lovely condo but condo’s can have special circumstances. Sarah got it know us and our property. She helped us navigate the emotional and financial implications of a major move and investment. She helped us find the right home for us and the right owner for our beloved ocean front paradise. It was critical to have an agent we could 100%trust. Sarah is that person and her team goes the extra mile. She got top dollar for our sale and helped us be the buyer (in a highly competitive market) for the perfect home for our family. You cannot go wrong with Sarah.

We worked with Sarah Olson and could not have had a better experience She really listens to her clients and makes sure to pick homes that meet their criteria. She is also not pushy and allows you as the client to decide if you are ready to purchase. Very responsive and always there when you have questions I would highly recommend

Home buying made easy. As a first time home buyer, it could have been scary with all of the unknown but Sarah explained everything. She explained all of the steps and made sure I knew what was coming. She was great at alerting me on properties and thorough on researching the property. When viewing, she would point out what was important. When purchasing my home she made sure that I was treated fairly and getting what was best for me.

I'm glad I chose Nicole to help me buy a home recently. She never hesitated to show me more homes and was successful in gathering more information on each home on my short list to help me make an informed decision. Nicole is an excellent real estate professional who is dedicated to her clients, even after closing. Thanks again, Nicole!

Nicole Middlebrook did an amazing job connecting me with a local realtor, and amazing team of professionals to help my first time buying a home come to life.

She vetted realtors for me to find the perfect match, connected me with a top-notch team for pre-approval, loan and insurance too. She helped make this process seamless, from the Behind the scenes work, to setting up an initial virtual appointment to go over steps in the home-buying process and connecting me with a rockstar team to see this through close for me.

I’d highly recommend Nicole and everyone she referred and connected me to through this process to anyone else looking to buy their next home.
