REALTOR OF THE WEEK Calderon focuses on new construction, condos

March 18, 2019

Real estate has been one of the primary ways to generate wealth throughout history.

“And I think that Houston’s condominium market is in a particularly advantageous position to continue this trend, since the local condo market is still in its relatively early stages compared to the more mature bi-coastal markets,” said Nicole Calderon, a Realtor with Sudhoff Companies.

Currently, Calderon is focusing most of her real estate efforts on The Mondrian at the Museums.

“It’s a beautiful Bauhaus-inspired mid-rise in the heart of the Museum District. However, I work in other areas like the Heights, River Oaks and Montrose, but at the moment The Mondrian is my main focus, which is my expertise — new construction luxury condos,” Calderon said.

The Museum District is the epicenter of culture in Houston, and it also offers a true neighborhood experience within a walkable distance to Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo, the municipal golf club, and numerous great eateries/cafes, and more.

“This is a great time to purchase homes, especially with the Innovation District underway. The area is slated for enormous growth, making now an ideal time to purchase in the area,” Calderon said.

The 9.4-acre Innovation District, owned by Rice Management Co., is close to Metrorail, seven colleges and universities, Texas Medical Center and the Museum District.

Calderon grew up overseas, between Canada and Denmark, with a few years in the U.S. in between, before settling in Houston a couple of decades ago. She has been a Realtor for over 15 years.

Calderon’s past careers include finance and print media.

“I believe a lot of my discipline and attention to detail can be traced back to my time spent in the financial arena. I also learned some invaluable people skills while working in print media,” Calderon said.

Calderon is known for being detail-oriented, a good listener and a critical thinker when it comes to the negotiation table. Furthermore, she is always 100 percent dedicated to her clients, and her customer service does not end at the closing table.

“Real estate to me does not feel like a job. I love what I do and love helping my clients,” Calderon said.
