After a career in fine art in San Francisco and New York City working for some of the most prestigious contemporary art galleries in the world, Nicollette Eason Trottier and her husband returned home to Pacific Grove to raise their family. Real estate was a natural career shift for Nicollette, a fifth-generation resident of the Monterey Peninsula. As an agent, she offers her clients the same uncompromising ethical standards, open communication, and exceptional customer service that she was known for in the art world.
Nicollette is a thoughtful yet fierce advocate who works with everyone from first-time buyers and military families to seasoned homeowners and retirees. Her expertise in Monterey County real estate, combined with up-to-date market knowledge, ensures that every client can win, whether their goal is to enjoy the Central Coast in the home of their dreams or to sell at top-dollar. A Master of Arts in Modern and Contemporary Art and the Market from Christie’s New York has informed Nicollette’s discerning eye, and her bachelor’s degree in marketing gives her the ability to present her clients’ properties in their best light. Her impeccable organizational skills and meticulous attention to detail round out her professional package and make the process seamless.
Outside of real estate, Nicollette’s passion is making art accessible through arts education, architectural restoration, and supporting emerging artists. She also serves on the board of the Monterey State Historic Park Association (MSHPA). At home, Nicollette enjoys collecting art, working in her garden, and cooking. She loves to explore the natural beauty of the Peninsula with her architect husband, their young son, and their faithful terrier.
