KKNW’s Newest Star

A house is made of materials like wood, brick, concrete and siding. Alone, these structures are cold, but purposeful. Once occupied by people, the house metamorphoses into a home.

It is this view of real estate that led the host of The 425 Show with Nicole Mangina to enter the world of property sales.

“Whenever I work with a client to buy or sell real estate, I consider it to be a huge honor. Our homes are the back-drop of our lives. Being a part of that transition, and being able to guide clients through the process, means a lot to me,” said Nicole.

Nicole took her passion for local real estate and built a radio show that promotes the area in which she loves to live. The 425 Show with Nicole Mangina airs Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Alternative Talk 1150.

Nicole grew up as the daughter of a man who made the Air Force his career. Over the years, the family had to relocate many times throughout the United States and Europe. She saw the experience as wonderful opportunity to experience so many places and cultures growing up. Then she moved to the Puget Sound region in 1989, and quickly adopted the Eastside as her “forever” home.

“I still love to travel, but honestly can’t imagine living anywhere else. I built this radio show to demystify the Eastside and show you why it’s such a great place to live,” she said.

The 425 Show with Nicole Mangina was developed to help answer listener questions about real estate and what makes living in the 425 area code so much fun. She says real estate is about more than just bedrooms and baths, and the Northwest is a great example of this assertion.

“The whole premise of the show is that it’s the people, places, events and businesses that make this such a great place to live. Each week we strive to highlight one of them, so that whether you are new to the area or looking for something new to do, you can find it through the show,” she said.

Nicole’s Real Estate practice began in 1996 with Windermere Real Estate. She says she is dedicated to providing her clients with the very best service possible and she understands that they invest in her each time they seek her out to help them with a real estate transaction. To keep current, Nicole continually invests in in her education. So much so that she is now a licensed Real Estate Continuing Education Instructor in the state of Washington.

“I really serve more as a consultant than a traditional salesperson when it comes to real estate. My focus when working with a client is that they have all of the information necessary to make the right decision for them. It’s all about empowering clients, versus just trying to convince them,” Nicole said.

After years of working with clients and touring hundreds of properties, one might think Nicole would tire of the grind, but on the contrary, in both her profession and on her radio show, she keeps an upbeat and positive approach each day.

“People always ask me if it is fun to look at houses all day. I always respond that yes, actually, it is.”

Find out how fun and educational listening to The 425 Show with Nicole Mangina can be by tuning in every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.
