EP 51: From Struggling in the First Year to Developing a Luxury RV Resort with Nicole Dufala

Nicole Dufala is a wife, mom, and real estate junkie. She started in the business in 2001 as a real estate appraiser. She obtained her RE license in 2010, struggled through her first year in the business until joining KW in 2011 and began building a team. Nicole’s husband joined her in 2013 to open up the investment division of the team.

From there Nicole and her husband have grown their team to 10, added new construction projects, vacation rentals, flip/holds and are now in the process of developing a waterfront Luxury RV resort. Everyone on their team has been with them for an extended period of time and continue to produce on a higher level than most. Nicole is a mother of 3 boys, married for 21 years to her best friend and business partner. She loves being outdoors and recently completed the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in CA.

On today’s episode, we discuss a lot with Nicole, including:

  • The key to building a powerhouse team
  • How to maximize the appraisal process
  • How to assess the best use of land investments
  • Tips for vacation rentals
  • How to raise kids with an entrepreneurial mindset
