Hi, my name is Nick Bastian. I have been licensed to sell real estate in Arizona since 1992. My father sold real estate in the 1970’s and instilled in me the value of real estate as an investment in my future. When I was 20 years old, my brother and I purchased our first home after our father helped us find a nice little place with a VA, no qualifying loan. Anyone remember those loans? It was a great start for two young men in 1988.
The late 80’s and early 90’s was a time when the real estate market was going through some very interesting times. The Savings and Loan crisis was devastating for many people, but it proved to be an excellent opportunity for a young want-to-be real estate hotshot starting to build his own portfolio of properties. By the time I was 30, I had owned more than 25 properties and was a textbook workaholic REALTOR.
Selling real estate can be a tough business. Solving problems, dealing with people from all walks of life, and keeping up with trends, technology, and policy issues is a full time job and success does not come easily. Fortunately, I had a mentor in my father who passed on the entrepreneurial spirit that served him so well in operating several successful businesses of his own. It is that Bastian entrepreneurial spirit, combined with a love of people, and a knack for running my own successful business, that keeps me motivated to work each day helping people reach their real estate goals.
My clients appreciate my honest, straight-forward approach. I am able to see your situation from a variety of angles and offer a professional perspective to help you reach your goals. I am not a “salesman”, but a respected professional who looks to help you complete transactions smoothly and efficiently while looking out for your best interest.
I’m all In: For the first 12 years of my career, I was a textbook workaholic: eating, sleeping, and breathing the real estate business. Those countless hours during my single years helped to build a career where I was able to earn the trust of family, friends and industry professionals alike. I also assisted many of the valley’s largest home builders with hundreds of “contingency sales” to help get their clients’ homes sold quickly, efficiently, and for as much money as possible. Home builders such as Beazer, Centex, Ryland, Pulte, KB Homes and more have trusted me with assisting their contingency management needs in the southeast valley.
Game Changer: At the end of 1998, I met a new client and helped her with several real estate transactions over the next few years. In November 2001, before an Arizona Diamondbacks World Series game, I asked her out on our first date, and in March of 2003, that client turned into Mrs. Lori Bastian. That’s when the real fun began. Three boys later, Lori and I now balance a busy family and business together.
