Nik prides himself on the fact that most of his business is based on referrals. Loan officers, real estate agents, appraisers, bankers and other financial professionals trust Nik to solve issues and negotiate deals for their clients and friends. Because Nik has been a real estate agent and a mortgage loan officer, it’s rare to come across a complexity in a real estate transaction that he hasn’t already seen and resolved. Nik has personally conducted over one thousand closings in his career and he continues to actively represent community banks, regional mortgage lenders, and national lenders with the same excitement and passion as when he conducted his first closing.
