Nancy Hicks - GRI, CRS

Principal Broker with Oregon First



I was born in Spokane , Washington. I moved to Portland when I was 22 months old. I have lived in the Portland Metro area ever since, except for two years. Working with an agent who knows the area can be vital to the success of your transaction.  35+ years of proven performance can help produce the results you are looking for.


I take a unique, very personal approach to real estate. Dedication to solving problems motivates me to go the extra mile. I listen to what you want. If superior representation with a caring touch is what you expect when buying or selling real estate, you can count on me to be a professional that always seeks to exceed your expectations.


I believe that a good relationship is achieved by establishing trust and mutual respect. My honest and straight forward approach and effective methods have established my credibility in the market place and can be a valuable resource to you. I believe that if you receive proper information, you can overcome problems and make good decisions.

I attend ongoing classes on real estate law, real estate finance and real estate practices. I am affiliated with Oregon First because of its excellent reputation and commitment to high standards and ethics.


I hope to have a long term relationship with clients by doing the best job possible for buyers and sellers. My business is built on referrals. I care that you are 100% pleased with my efforts.
