From small town living in Stony Plain, to the Alberta Winter Games, to investor, to CPA, up the Corporate Ladder, and now into the vast world of Residential Real Estate; my lifelong love affair with Curling has reminded me that life’s journey isn’t always one smooth, unobstructed sweep to landing on the button.

When you ask people pertinent questions about where they hope to live, most people break down the City by school zones, proximity to work or a desired lifestyle. Since moving to Edmonton from Stony Plain after high school, I have been navigating the City based on which curling rink my desired location was close to! I put countless hours into training on the ice as well as working hard to put myself through school to earn my Business degree and CPA designation. After University I quickly worked my way up the corporate ladder from Accounting Assistant to Controller. I excelled at my corporate jobs but at the end of the day I didn’t feel as though I was making a real difference in people’s lives and I started to explore other ways to put my talents to good use.

I was exposed to the wonderful world of Real Estate at a young age watching my parents buy, renovate, and flip the homes we lived in. I didn’t always enjoy living in a construction zone and moving every few years, but I learned a lot about how homes were built and renovated. In 2011, I purchased my first property and that’s when my passion for Residential Real Estate really took off. I thought I was prepared for the home buying experience, having watched my parents do it successfully so many times themselves, but I soon discovered that I had a lot to learn. My parents were not so thrilled of my plan to rent a portion of my potential new property as they feared all the things that can go wrong with tenants. My business background and analytical nature, however, gave me the assurance to know that owning a rental property could be a lucrative venture if done wisely and therefore was worth the risk.

Becoming a home owner and landlord myself, really cemented for me the qualities a great Real Estate Agent should possess. I learned as a potential buyer that pushy sales tactics, lack of information and poor responsiveness to my questions, was the opposite of what I needed to be confident in making the largest financial purchase of my life. Learning from these early experiences, combined with years of sweat equity, my initial real estate investment has really paid off and become one of my proudest accomplishments. I love helping other people achieve their real estate goals too, by sharing the important things I’ve learned firsthand, being transparent, and educating people about their options.

When I’m not communicating my Real Estate knowledge to potential clients, I’m most likely at a curling rink, and when I’m not curling, I’m likely spending time with my dog and loved ones. In addition to having a supportive family, I have been blessed by the numerous great coaches who tirelessly volunteered their time and expertise to help me chase my dreams on and off the ice over the years. I look forward to someday paying this forward by coaching future aspiring athletes.

I Liv For: family, curling, and puppy snuggles

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
I’m a big HGTV nerd so I would choose to have dinner with any of the HGTV stars like Bryan Baeumler, Scott McGillivray, or Sarah Richardson.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
If I were so fortunate as to win the lottery I’d buy a few more rental properties so I could live off the passive income and carve out more time for family, curling, and golfing. I’d also love to adopt more rescue dogs since I could spend more time at home.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Edmonton?
Pampa’s Brazilian Steakhouse

If you could shop for free forever at any store, what store would it be?
If I could shop for free at Wayfair I’d have so much fun re-decorating my house with different furniture and accent pieces every few months.

What’s your favorite quote?
“I never lose. I either win or learn” Nelson Mandela

If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you do?
Take a road trip to the mountains with my husband and puppy (well she’s actually seven years old but will always be a puppy in my mind) and enjoy the quiet time together surrounded by the beautiful scenery.

Testimonials


Nicky Kaufman made the whole experience of buying a home personal and pleasant. She ensured my needs were met as a buyer, and that my questions were addressed with accurate and up-to-date information. From the first viewing up to possession day, there was communication to keep me informed on the next steps, timelines and other required stakeholders to loop in. I would highly recommend Nicky as a realtor.

Nicky is a gracious real estate agent who truly understands her client's needs. She goes above and beyond to ensure happiness, even though it took us seeing 30 properties and putting in offers on 4 of them before we finally found our home. She was never pushy, and ensured we understood contract terms in layman's terms. Though she may seem a tad unexperienced, she relies on her mentors to get anything that is needed to help out. We would definitely recommend her to our friends!

I would recommend Nicky because she always puts her clients first. We are first time home buyers and Nicky patiently directed us throughout the process. She was always quick to respond to our questions and we had no problems arranging viewings. She helped us keep our deadlines and reminded us of important contract features. She was honest when looking at homes and wouldn't let us settle just to make the sale. Nicky helped us navigate some strange situations including deck permits and hold backs. We are so grateful for her expertise and advice. Thanks Nicky!
