Nicholas Palance is a NYRS® and CRE® certified top producer at Douglas Elliman Real Estate with extensive experience selling prime real estate all over New York City from Fifth Avenue co-ops, West Village penthouses, expansive SoHo lofts, and Upper West Side condos to Victorians and Brownstones in Brooklyn. Nicholas’ reputation for integrity, creative deal structuring, discretion, and carefully listening to his clients is the cornerstone of his success.
During his first year in the business, Nicholas was named Brown Harris Stevens Rookie of the Year. In 2012, Nicholas won the prestigious “1st Place Deal of the Year Award” by The Real Estate Board of New York for closing the industry’s most challenging deal in New York City. Nicholas was selected by Hall Willkie and the Co-Chairmen of Terra Holdings to serve as Executive Vice President, Managing Director of Sales overseeing fifty seasoned agents in Brown Harris Steven’s thriving Park Slope Brooklyn office. This experience in 2013 rapidly heightened Nick’s exposure and strengthened his ability in his current role as a top broker in Manhattan. The majority of Nick’s business comes from repeat clients and referrals. For investors, Nick identifies suitable properties, facilitates the sale, and also keeps their assets rented at top levels.
Upon graduating early with high honors at Northeastern University, Nicholas excelled at PricewaterhouseCoopers as an expatriate tax consultant to Wall Street’s top investment bankers at Lehman Brothers, Nomura, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Dresdner Kleinwort. Thereafter, Nicholas became, recruited and managed a team of financial analysts within the music industry at EMI. Nicholas’ team serviced the accounts of Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Norah Jones, and Keith Urban. Nicholas was ultimately promoted to handle the entire Capital Records repertoire and Beatles catalogue. Despite this success, Nicholas decided to follow his entrepreneurial instincts in the family business: real estate.
An avid golfer, skier, and fisherman, Nicholas also devotes free time to the American Cancer Society, Urban Land Institute, Best Buddies New York, National Down Syndrome Society, and the Harwich Conservation Trust on Cape Cod. Nicholas enjoys an active role on the Real Estate Board of New York.
