Catherine welcomed Nicole Gurries to Catherine Gortner Properties in 2018.  Nicole and Catherine share backgrounds in high technology which bring a wealth of marketing, negotiating, and management experience to serving their real estate clients.  Nicole spent four years at Google, and six years at Facebook in technical recruiting.  She recruited, and was promoted to build out a team to recruit highly sought-after engineers and scientists in the fields of infrastructure, machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence.  Prior to her real estate career, she had 10 years of high-technology experience in negotiating offers, closing strategies, and various aspects of management.

In addition, Nicole and her husband (who runs an electrical contracting company) have bought, sold, and renovated multiple properties. This has given Nicole a keen eye to what features add value to a property, and has also allowed her to build out a network of trusted contractors and sub-contractors that she utilizes in helping her clients.

Because she’s been through it, and has helped others with it, Nicole understands that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience.

Nicole will work relentlessly to help you achieve your real estate goals, while being honest, genuine, and attentive to your needs all along the way.

On a more personal level, Nicole was born in San Jose and for the majority of her life has called it “home.” She is a mom of four little people. She loves being involved with their school and sports activities and spending time with friends and family.  She left her career in tech to spend more time with the people who matter to her most as well as to pursue her passion for real estate and her hobbies.

Nicole’s Mission Statement:

Nicole’s philosophy is simple: clients come first.  She pledges to be in constant communication with her clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process.  She believes that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, she hasn’t done her job right.
