About Urban Blue Realty
Founder & Designated Broker
In addition to overseeing UBR, Nick founded Blue Sky Homes (nickblue.com), a real-estate firm that since 2009 has developed over 300 single-family projects in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Throughout the course of those new builds and renovations, Nick saw the opportunity to show traditional sellers how they might utilize the techniques of investors and sell their homes faster, and for more money. Recognizing that houses will always sell for more if properly presented to buyers, the $10K RENO program was created on a model of achieving the biggest bang for the buck while keeping the process simple & passive for the seller.
Prior to acquiring his broker’s license, Nick held Series 7 & 66 licenses while working as a financial advisor. He specialized in equity management by helping his clients understand and execute creative investment opportunities, utilizing real estate to achieve their financial goals.
Originally from Marin County in Northern California, Nick came to Arizona in pursuit of a chance to play Major League Baseball via an invitation from the San Diego Padres to attend spring training. While a shoulder injury brought that dream to a halt, the time spent rehabbing in Arizona gave him his first glimpse of the vibrant real-estate market in the Phoenix area.
When not chasing deals, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, competing in Xterra triathlons, helicopter skiing, surfing, traveling to distant lands, and helping his younger brother turn lightning quick double plays …
