Meet Trailblazer Nicole Les

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Les.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Nicole. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Home always meant more to me than just a place to live in. I sensed early that I can use my surroundings to make me feel different and help me through situations that are more challenging by organizing and changing my space.

I fell in love with so many houses and often felt the need to move to a different space so I can renovate and change it until I am done and I would move on to another one. I had the pleasure to change my home 17 times so far and even that it is a stressful process I love to do it over and over again.

Back in Germany where I grew up, I worked as a banker for over 14 years which wasn’t my dream job but I am thankful for the experience to work with clients every day. Communication and a sensitive connection with my clients are very important to me and its the key to working together in this business to get a great outcome. Doesn’t matter if this is the Seller, Realtor, Contractor or all together as a team.

Moving to this country gave my passion for houses a purpose. I ‘had never heard about this job “Stager” before, as we didn’t have this in Germany back then. Even now, it’s not that as popular as it is here in the US.

When we put our first house on the market in North Reading, we had a hard time selling it as the market was not a seller’s market about 10 years ago.

I rearranged our house often to find the best setup to get the offer we wanted and in this way, I found
out that Home Staging is an actual service. With moving so often, I have looked at hundreds of houses over the past years and I got the bigger picture of how homes are presented and what impact it has on
the potential buyer. There is always something beautiful about a house but you need to be able to see it. It’s not about making a house pretty – it’s about enhancing what’s already there and can be actually very simple.

I loved the idea to help see the beauty of a space and most important to feel the space as buying a home is an emotional decision – if we connect to it we “feel” it’s the right home for us.

I added Feng Shui, space clearing and intuition to design/style houses and started Heart Creates Home 6 years ago.

Homes are my passion and I enjoy every single home and the connection with my clients and I am thankful for them being open to this as I know, it’s not always easy to let a stranger into your personal space and change things around.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I will say this: Life is a journey and I am thankful for the situations I could learn and grow from. 🙂 From time to time, you need a different perspective and it’s amazing how many new ideas you can get. I am in the process of adding a new service that will concentrate more on the homeowner who doesn’t move but needs more balance in life.

We’d love to hear more about Heart Creates Home.
We create environments that are designed to feel lived in, warm and modern – captures the imagination of today’s home buyer.

We make sure a house shows great but also feels that way and work with energy and the fundamentals of Feng Shui. Many clients tell us after their home was staged and an offer accepted, they had second thoughts on leaving because they really felt the change in energy! We create appeal by maximizing the strengths of your property and minimizing any weaknesses so buyers can fall in love with the home.

Do you recommend any apps, books or podcasts that have been helpful to you?
