DLLR Lic. #648362-MD

Nikki takes the role of being your real estate resource for life very seriously. She has over 10 years combined experience as a Realtor, real estate investor, and now property manager. Her clients trust her to play a key role in one of the most important areas of life – selling, buying, and investing in real estate.

She helps clients sell, buy and invest in real estate and takes great pride in helping her clients make sound financial decisions based on stats, her knowledge of the local market and her personal experience as an investor. Nikki, along with her two business partners, Rajiv Patel and Carla! Richardson, are proud to launch a new extension of the real estate business – Real Property Management Renowned, where they take on the hassles of property management so owners hold on to profitable investments and don’t miss out on the things and people important to them. Together they are able to offer a one-stop resource for all of your real estate needs. While Nikki’s business partners focus on the financials, analysis, reporting, client services, tenant relations, and maintenance, Nikki is able to use her degree in marketing and communications from American University and ten years’ experience as a licensed Realtor to serve in a marketing, sales, negotiation, and contracts specialist capacity.

When Nikki is not serving her clients, you’ll find her with her husband, Dave, and two boys, Tommy (15) and Chase (11).

Carla rounds out the team as Owner and COO of Real Property Management Renowned. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from her decorated 35-year career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). She retired in 2020 but realized there was a lot more to do.

She was also a member of a highly trained evidence response team for 15 of those years she was with the Bureau.

All these experiences helped her develop advanced managerial and leadership skills, which led her to start two previous businesses– VitalOne Solutions, LLC, a medical and PPE supply company, and Rich Entertainment Professional Group, a music artist agency. As managing partner of RPM Renowned, Carla is focused on operations and is responsible for resident and vendor relations, compliance, business development, and strategic planning for the company.
