Born in the Dominican Republic, Nick came to the United States at the age of 17. Being the eldest of 10 children, Nick knew that he not only needed to support himself, but that he also had to help his mother with the rest of his siblings. He continued with his education in New York and entered into the Real Estate industry in 1978, which is also the year he began dating his wife, Terry. Nick and Terry married in 1980 and continued to achieve the American Dream of homeownership. In 1986, Nick opened Top Service Realty, Inc. in Queens Village and joined the ERA Franchise in 1987.
