Nic Wilson is not your average real estate broker. He is a trusted advisor and advocate with a long tenure of service in the public sector as well as in his real estate practice. Nic’s client database includes successful business people, attorneys, first-time home buyers, executives, family, and friends—all of whom will attest to his deep knowledge of Oregon real property sales, from small condominiums to multi-million dollar luxury estates and riverfront properties.

A US Army veteran who served in the 82nd Airborne Division for six years with several overseas assignments, Nic also spent 12 years with a local Police Department, earning several accommodations for life saving actions in the line of duty before choosing to pursue a new service-oriented career, this time in real estate. Before pivoting to practicing as an independent agent in the fall of 2021, Nic trained with one of Portland's elite real estate sales teams, participating in the group’s annual sales of over $100 million. Personally, Nic sells an average of 30-40 homes per year and has achieved more than $90 million in sales volume since obtaining his broker’s license in 2017.

Nic serves his clients with the same honesty and integrity that defined his previous tours of duty in the military and law enforcement. His success as a broker comes from his clients’ assurance that—every step of the way—their needs come first. If you are ready to sell, invest, or start your first search as a first-time home buyer, Nic is ready to put his local knowledge and market expertise to work on your behalf.

"Nic Wilson and his team are prompt, knowledgeable and responsive. Spent time on weekends and late evenings to show us houses including prompt arrangements to see houses within hours. I recommend him to everyone. Pavan and Amitha Gona

We worked with Nic Wilson on the Laue Team and can't recommend him enough. He was very responsive, super knowledgeable about everything in the process and helped us sell for more than we thought we could. Personally, just a great human being to work with as well. Erik Bailey

— Erik Bailey

I had a great experience with the Laue Team, especially agent Nic. He was very patient with me as we looked at multiple homes. I seemed to find something wrong with almost everyone and Nic did not pressure me. When I finally found the one, he was quick to help me set myself up for winning the home I wanted. It's a very tough market currently and it really helps to have a team that knows what they are doing. Sherrie Benson

My Wife and I reached out to Nic to help us find a home this summer. Nic, and everyone else with the Laue team, were extremely kind and professional. They were able to help us find homes in our price range to tour. Once we found the house that was right for us, Nic and the team were able to coordinate with our lender as well as schedule the inspection and appraisal. They did a fantastic job handling everything, including the negotiations as well. Nic managed to get us our home for less than list price with the seller covering much of the closing costs. I would highly recommend working with Nic, or anyone with the Laue team. They were all extremely responsive to emails and phone calls and great at their jobs. William Sun

"When my husband and I began looking for homes this year, we connected with Nic at the Laue team. Nic and Mary were kind, responsive, and made every effort to ensure that we were taken care of. From coordinating with our lender, scheduling inspections and the appraisal, and communicating with the seller's realtor and HOA, Nic was very attentive and proactive. We were very happy with the negotiations that were made as well as the end result. Throughout the entire process we felt that communication from Nic and Mary was clear, timely, thorough, and professional; we felt that we knew where we were at in the process throughout. We happily recommend the Laue team to other home buyers." Kurissa Sun

Nic Wilson is irreplaceable as a guide in the home buying and selling process. He’s quick, honest, strategic and gets in the details to make sure you’re covered. He helped our family sell our two year home and buy our forever home. I highly recommend Nic Wilson and the Laue Team. Kevin Hartman

— Kevin Hartman

My wife and I, coming from California, found Nic Wilson fairly randomly while looking at properties unrepresented. It's difficult finding a house coming out of state and Nic went above and beyond to assist us along the way. We ended up using a mortgage broker that he referred us to, Aaron at Capital M, who was also wonderful. Nic helped us identify properties, spoke honestly about the advantages and disadvantages of various locations, and knew his stuff all the way around. He scheduled all of the inspections, handled appointments for contractors, and more. When it came to getting the best deal possible I was very happy with how he represented our needs and the evidence based approach he used to make offers / counter offers. There was trategy involved. It wasn't just asking, then reporting back that the seller had said no and moving on. He also wrangled the seller's agent when my wife and I moved up the timetable to accommodate the movers. Aaron and the team at Capital M we're also stars here. While this is our first purchase in OR we plan to make more and will not hesitate to use Nic again. Matt and Jordan

I highly recommend Nic Wilson with the Laue Team. He went above and beyond in helping us find our home. When negotiations got tense he handled them with professional ease. Nic knows his real estate, and he made buying a home easy for us. He also helped us sell our home, and was committed to doing the work to make sure it sold. His assistant Mary was also very helpful with the timeline and details. Andrea Hartman

"My wife and I worked with Nic Wilson both in selling our temporary townhouse and in finding our family's forever home in Portland. I could not say enough about Nic's help. He listened AND understood what we wanted so we only looked at homes that met our location, layout and budget criteria, which saved us a ton of time and anguish by not looking at homes that didn't fit us. He never pressured us or rushed us but was always ready to jump in when we needed his expertise. Nic was quick yet strategic in his counsel and was irreplaceable during the negotiation process. If you're looking for a home or looking to sell a home in the Portland-metro area, I highly recommend reaching out to Nic Wilson with the Laue Team. Your family and your wallet will be thankful you did." Kevin Hartman

Nic Wilson of the Laue Team was a pleasure to work with. He sold our house in two days, with offers over asking price.

"We were lucky to have Nic Wilson of the Laue Team help us sell and buy our home. Knowing I could trust Nic to manage the many details of the buying and selling process made for such a positive experience. His calm and cool approach was very appreciated and made negotiations easier. We are so happy with our move and our new house! We could not have done it without all the help from Nic and his great team. The excellent photos helped boost interest in our home with 8 offers in two days. The Laue Team worked to coordinate closing the sale of one home, and the buying of the new home all on the same business day. Every step we took through the selling and buying process was met with knowledge and ease from the Laue Team. Sending many thanks and 5 star ratings to Nic and Team Laue!" Scott and Beth Hall over asking price. It was reassuring knowing Nic was taking care of all the details and making the process of selling/buying easier. We had a great experience working with Nic and his team! Scott and Beth Hall Hi Nic! Time has flown by, and we are settling into the Stono house. I wanted to say THANKS!!! Thanks for being so helpful, so calm, so quick to take care of things, so prompt with emails/texts, and so knowledgeable about the entire process of selling/buying. I'm still happy and somewhat amazed the whole thing worked out. Beth and Scott Hall

We initially worked with the Laue Team in 2016 when we moved to Portland, OR. This year, 2019, we decided to sell and came back to Rick Brainard and the Laue team and we were totally pleased with the result. Our primary agent was Nic Wilson. Initially we were concerned about their knowledge of the central Portland market, but found their market analysis and strategy was totally on target--more so than that of another realtor we spoke to who works mainly the Portland market. Throughout the process of listing to the sale, communication was ongoing, the marketing strategy was discussed and executed, and the result was terrific. Interesting that during the marketing they hired a professional to draw the house plan with specific measurements. We found the house was bigger than we thought when purchased. Also the professional chosen for the photos was terrific. So we highly recommend the Laue Team at Hasson and Nic Wilson, our main agent. Al Hornish

"Rick Brainard helped me buy my house 4 years ago and he and this time, primarily Nic Wilson,helped me to sell it for a good profit this year. We ended up with 4 good offers , 2 were above asking price. Nic was actively selling it with about 6 open house in 3 months. He is an excellent agent and I will call Rick and Nic in the future and also will refer others". lesleyarle

"The Laue real-estate Company, Hasson Company was very professional from start to finish with the sale of my cousin's estate condo. They had to work with us by e-mail and phone calls while handling a two hour time difference between cities. This firm was recommended by our Attorney in Portland for helping us in selling our property." Thomas McMahon

— Thomas McMahon

"Nic Wilson along with Mary Watts and Debi Laue of the Laue Team are first class real estate professionals. They have the proper infrastructure in place to represent both buyers and sellers in this complicated market. They don't cut corners and they do things the right way which leads to the most efficient results. We look forward to working with Nic and the Laue Team again on our future real estate needs." mhilden1

We recently purchased a home with Nic Wilson and The Laue Team. We will most definitely be using him to sell our other home. We couldn't be more pleased or impressed. His knowledge of real estate in the area, consideration for our needs, and help through the home search and purchase process was phenomenal. He is nice, hard working, professional, thorough, and did not disappoint us at any point during our months-long search. We would recommend anyone looking to purchase or sell a home contact Nic and The Laue Team. Nick and Kristina Johnson

We highly recommend Nic Wilson and the Laue team! Nic went above and beyond for us when selling our home recently, making a very stressful time a lot simpler. He is a great negotiator and was happy to talk us through each step of our difficult sale. My parents and both of my siblings have used Nic when buying and we will definitely use him again in the future! J and c Meakin

You could not ask for better folks to work with when selling or purchasing a home or property. Nic possesses exceptional knowledge and style when gearing up for and timing real estate purchases in the Portland area. They are always accurate and sensitive to both immediate events and long term trends. The word excellent is used to describe perfommance or presentation in the top two percent. In that case, excellent experience! Jane Butler

This was my second time selling a home with the Laue Team. My first experience with Rick Brainard was excellent. My second experience with Nic Wilson was excellent as well, albeit in a different way. Every home sale is different, and Nic distinguished himself by helping us through a more complicated and emotional home-selling process. Nic was incredibly responsive and went above-and-beyond by doing a fair amount of hand-holding and encouraging for us. He helped us weather the emotional storm while maintaining, along with the rest of the Laue Team, exceptional technical expertise and transaction processing. Honestly, I could not have asked for a better realtor. I highly recommend Nic to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Justin Oliver (attorney)

— Justin Oliver

Nic and the Laue Team were great to work with. We used them to purchase a home and then again when we sold that home! We were so thankful for Nic’s attention to every detail. Our house was marketed and sold very quickly as a result. The entire process was seamless! D and L Nielsen

— D and L Nielsen

Awesome! Thank you so much for all your help Nic, and for sticking with it through the end. You did a great job, and you were especially helpful managing everything for us while we’ve been here in Korea (especially all the ups and downs with our “renters”). We are so appreciative, and would not hesitate referring anyone to you in the future. Thanks again! Parkers

It’s about quality over quantity. At Hasson, we take tremendous pride in associating only with agents who epitomize the service, communication and professionalism that our company is known for. The agents and the company are dependent upon each other to achieve the greatest success.

"Nic is wonderful to work with. As first time home buyers and after being discouraged working with 2 other brokers in the Portland area, we were lucky to find Nic.
He was knowledgeable about the area and patient with our never ending questions. We valued his honesty and it felt like our friend was helping us buy a house, holding our best interest at heart.
In the pandemic's competitive market, Nic's excellent negotiation skill was instrumental to win a multiple offer situation with the difficult seller's agent.
My husband and I could not recommend Nic highly enough."
