Nicholas Santoleri Realtor

Nicholas “Nick” Santoleri

Associate Broker | Realtor

If the most important quality in a prospective home is good bones, then the most important quality in a realtor is the ability to see them. As a former project superintendent, Nick Santoleri understands every facet of both commercial and residential building.  His background in stone masonry and construction led to real estate investing, property management and ultimately, to commercial and residential real estate sales.  

Over the course of his thirty-year career, Nick pursued his continuing education with an emphasis on real estate law.  This, combined with his innate and consummate knowledge of art and design, uniquely qualifies Nick to help potential buyers locate the perfect dwelling, from groundbreaking to ribbon cutting.

Chester County native and longtime Delaware County resident, Nick is intimately familiar with the Delchester area, closing over one hundred transactions in the course of his career.  Additionally, Nick holds an FAA Licensed Commercial Drone Pilot and currently owns three high definition drones. He is a seasoned photographer, a graphic artist and an Award winning fine artist.  As a grandfather of ten with one more on the way, Nick knows better than anyone that his clients are not just buying a home, they’re buying a school district. They’re buying a community. They’re making the single greatest purchase of their lives— the kind of investment that requires a seasoned agent to lead them— an agent like Nick Santoleri, realtor, associate broker, and proud member of the Mike Santoleri Team!    

Our Approach

All calls to our office regarding your property come directly to us (the listing agent), rather than to an agent on floor duty who is not familiar with your home and all of its amenities. 90% of our Sellers and Buyers come to us via referrals from previous clients (average RE/MAX agent is 70%, the average non-RE/MAX agent is 30%)

We are extremely knowledgeable about the Chester & Delaware County areas, as well as the schools, transportation, shopping, entertainment, dining, the neighborhoods & the surrounding communities.

We competently control the custom/personalized marketing programs for each of our listings/sellers. We determine where the property gets advertised and how much we spend. The past three years we have averaged $20,000,000 per year in residential transactions.

Kathleen Wilkin

Real Estate Professional

Kathleen’s career in Real Estate began in 1993. After having relocated seven times in her adult life (!), she figured she was qualified to advise and represent sellers and buyers about the process. Since then, she has worked with hundreds of clients in successfully negotiating the purchase of the home of their dreams, or in obtaining the best possible price and terms for her sellers. With professionalism, attention to detail, superior communication and responsiveness, and a thorough knowledge of the Main Line and western suburbs of Philadelphia, Kathleen values the many relationships and repeat business that real estate has brought. Working almost completely by referral from past clients, Kathleen’s most important observation in dealing with those she represents is to respect the reason behind the purchase or sale.

Kathleen is a member of Suburban West Realtors Association, the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. She has achieved the distinction of being awarded the status of a Philadelphia Five Star Real Estate Agent every year since the inception of that award – something of which she is most proud because the award is made based on client recommendations. She is a graduate of the University of Buffalo, and a former Vice President of Southeast Bank in Florida. When not dedicating her day to buyers and sellers, Kathleen enjoys traveling to Massachusetts to visit her daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren, having brunch with her son and daughter-in-law in West Chester, spending “quality time” with her aging Golden Retriever whose favorite place these days is the vet’s, or relaxing at the Jersey Shore. Having been a “founding member” of the Mike Santoleri team 16 years ago, Kathleen greatly values this long-standing partnership.
