Three years into his real estate career, Nick Slater has already acquired a great reputation. A sales agent at McGrath Belconnen/Gungahlin, Nick is a registered salesperson in the ACT. While Nick has strong professional credentials, it’s his personal attributes that make Nick so good to work with. Energetic and dynamic, Nick is one of those people with boundless enthusiasm.
Well travelled and multilingual, Nick spent years living overseas prior to settling in the ACT. His time in other countries has made him appreciate Canberra’s attractions, particularly his specialist area, North Canberra. A huge fan of its “vibrancy and the diversity of its community,” Nick gets great satisfaction out of helping members of his community with their property needs. Indeed, when asked to nominate his proudest achievement in real estate Nick says it’s “helping people realise their dreams. I get a real thrill out of helping people.” When assisting clients with property sales, Nick places great emphasis on establishing open lines of communication. Warm and engaging, Nick is known for his ability to build rapport with all his clients. For Nick, “gaining a genuine understanding of my clients’ objectives is the first step in a successful sales campaign.” Nick adds, “I think it’s important that clients are ‘in the loop,’ it enables them to make informed decisions as the sales process unfolds.”
Results oriented, Nick nonetheless has the ability to remain calm throughout a campaign. He comments, “while I’m focused on getting the best possible sales result, I want the journey to be as a pleasant as possible.” Nick’s approach to real estate has proven to be highly successful. Nick boasts an almost perfect list/sell ratio, he sold close to 50 properties in his first eight months as an agent. Characteristically, Nick is proudest of the fact that he’s been able to generate referred business. Nick can also be relied upon to provide outstanding service to buyers. His knowledge of local property means he’s able to provide clients with up-to-the minute advice about new listings. Nick says “I feel privileged to be entrusted with client’s business, and I take my role seriously.”
Nick’s client-first ethos means that he enjoys working within McGrath. He says “McGrath is well known for setting new standards in the industry, especially in relation to client service. McGrath promotes genuine respect for clients, and this aligns perfectly with my own values.”
"I personally want to thank you for all of your efforts in handling the sale of my property. It was an outstanding success and at this stage of my life it was important that the sale be handled smoothly and professionally... and you certainly delivered. Nick, I could not be happier with the result...you smashed it! But aside from that, the amazing level of service I received from you and your team was way above what I had expected. Right from the beginning you stood out from the other agents I had spoken to as I was highly impressed with your motivation and professionalism and I am so glad I chose you to manage the sale. During the process you always kept me updated as to exactly what was happening and were able to provide me with straight forward and practical advice which I really appreciated. Thank you!!I want to let you know that I am available to attest to the quality of your services and would be more than happy to recommend you personally and the entire McGrath team’s professional services to anyone considering making a move."- John Sciberras
"As a buyer of one of Nick’s advertised properties, I was impressed with Nick’s professionalism. He provided very good guidance and promptly responded to all enquiries. Nick’s thorough sales and after sales support was beyond that expected of a seller’s agent. I am happy to recommend Nick to future buyers."- Leon Young
"Nick did a great job selling our home. If you are looking for an agent to actually drive the sale to its final conclusion, rather than simply wait for the sale to happen, then I highly recommend Nick to you. Nick was attuned to the prospective buyers and was able to provide accurate and well-weighted feedback to myself during the selling process. We learnt through Nick's post inspection feedback exactly what price we could expect to achieve. In our case, this was important to us because the market conditions were changing and through Nick’s comments, we were in a better, sharper position to negotiate when the offers were on the table. You'll see Nick is a focused professional, but also has a very approachable aspect to his personality. I am sure prospective buyers felt at ease in asking that extra question, more willing to leave their details for a follow up call and make that connection. We NEEDED the property to sell at a good price for us... and thanks to Nick's great work, it did." - Dale Peters
