My favourite thing to do in Niagara…
Riding my bike along the Niagara River Parkway, walking my dogs on the pathways along the lakeside, and wrapping up any summer day entertaining good friends with an outdoor dinner in my backyard.
My favourite vacation was…
A long-awaited anniversary trip with my husband to the beautiful island of Kauai. Every moment was breathtaking, whether we were cycling past breaching whales on the Oceanside path, or zip-lining through the tropical forest.
The accomplishment I am most proud of is:
Together with my husband, raising four wonderful children, who are kind and compassionate. Watching them grow into responsible and very hard- working adults continues to be incredibly rewarding.
One day I would like to…
Have a house full of grandchildren to spoil!
Aside from real estate, I am passionate about…
Playing as much tennis as I possibly can, as well as raising and rescuing Golden Retrievers.
I was raised in real estate family, with both my parents working in commercial and residential real estate. So, needless to say, at a very young age, my sisters and I were helping run the office, taking calls, delivering flyers, and even helping flip houses!
My passion for everything to do with real estate has been ongoing, through learning the ropes of buying, selling, and investing, within the family business. However, I also spent over twenty years as an educator, teaching everything from English to Science to Special Education, to Middle and Senior School students. I believe that my versatility, in those roles, makes me very well suited to meeting the needs of each and every client in the real estate business. As no two student’s needs are the same, the same can be said for clients, and I am committed to recognizing client’s individual needs, and going to great lengths to listen, understand, and fulfill their wishes.
Something that really sets me apart, is that I am not actually from this area. I was raised and educated in Toronto, and lived in York Region for many years. And then one summer day something magical happened on a beautiful Niagara bike ride with my husband. We were ‘tourists’ visiting from the city for the weekend, and we could not get over the beauty of the area; everything from the light, the smells, the peaceful aura of the vineyards and the Niagara River, and the refreshingly friendly feel of a small town. So, that very day, we happened upon a pink ‘for sale’ sign and took down the name of the local real estate broker. The journey to move our family to our dream home in our dream location had begun!
Fast forward several years, and I now have a trunk full of my own PINK signs, waiting to make my client’s dreams come true!
Nicole is an attentive, friendly, and professional realtor. She supported my husband and I in the sale of my father's house when he had to go to a long-term facility. She is compassionate, patient, and knowledgeable. She is very familiar with the real estate market and knew exactly how much to set the price of the house. She even got us more than what we expected. We were so happy with her work, that we hired her to also help us purchase a condo. She took the time to listen to our needs and found us the perfect place. Nicole called us the day after we moved in, and a few weeks after to see how we were. We would definitely recommend Nicole for your real estate experience.

Nicole helped us buy a house and an investment property in the last year. She's very professional, supportive, and helpful. Always available to answer any questions and concerns. She's very knowledgeable and patient while guiding you through the process of buying the house. We will definitely go back to her to buy/sell property in the future.

Mike and I were extremely happy with the real estate support we received from Nicole with our recent purchase in the Niagara area. Nicole was patient with us as we really didn't know what kind of home we were looking for, but she listened attentively to our suggestions and readily found us properties to investigate until we found our retirement nest! I would not hesitate to recommend Nicole if you are looking for real estate support. She is knowledgeable, professional, empathetic and most definitely personable. Thank you, Nicole for all of your support, we are so happy with our new home!

In the adventure of buying a new home, especially in a new city, it is advantageous to have a knowledgeable guide. When they are personable and patient as well, the journey is eased. Such a person is Nicole Marsh-Burke who let us explore the varied offerings of St. Catharines, while helping us to narrow our search to a very desirable destination. We highly recommend Nicole.
-Tony Hanik and Veronica Clarke-Hanik
Nicole was of great assistance during the sale of our home. She was thorough and came armed with facts and data We felt supported and informed through the entire process. We were glad that we chose Nicole Marsh-Burke.
- Mr. Preston
My fiancé and I were first time home buyers when we met Nicole and her team, and they were absolutely amazing. Nicole was always available, no matter what time of day, and it was simply incredible how she joined us on the emotional journey of buying our dream home. We absolutely felt that we had a friend in our corner who had our best interests at heart, which was huge for us because we were coming into this with zero real estate knowledge. Nicole and her team all took the time to explain every step fully and made the process so easy. We would absolutely recommend Nicole.
