If you're a person looking for the kind of personalized service and/or responsiveness that existed before our world became so automated, look to La Puerta's Real Estate Qualifying Broker, Nicole Ackerman.

While I embrace technology as a tool to help communicate with clients and market your listings, I still believe in old-fashioned activities such as answering the phone, listening carefully to what my clients are searching for, and then responding to the clients' questions, desires, and specific concerns.

I am New Mexico born and raised. I was exposed to real estate, land development, water systems and Homeowners Associations at a young age. I have been working with my mother and owner of La Puerta Real Estate Services since 2007 and I have been a licensed real estate broker since 2012. I have received an Associate of Applied Arts in both Business and Accounting, with an emphasis on Real Estate. I continue my education in the industry keeping up to date with trends in the current market.

It is my goal to provide a personalized service to my clients, resulting in happy, satisfied clients through closing day and beyond.


Over the past few years Nicole has helped us purchase a house, purchase land, and sell a house. She was excellent in all three situations. She was very patient as we looked at numerous homes before our purchase. She provided advice when needed, but also listened to our input. When selling the house she did background research to answer questions from buyers when we didn't know the answers. During purchase or sale, she does an excellent job of keeping track of the process and keeping you informed. She is very responsive, but not pushy. We strongly recommend Nicole!

Buying a house in today's market seemed extremely difficult and possibly unattainable. Nicole Ackerman was very professional, personable, and easy to work with. The whole process from selling our home (which Nicole was able to do well above our asking price and bringing in a cash buyer) to buying a new home - that met our desires was very stressful and overwhelming. Our criteria for a house were very high. Nicole moved fast as houses were not lasting long on the market. She was able to find the perfect house for us and negotiated the right offer that was accepted by the sellers. Not only was it the right offer, but we were also able to get the home of our dreams at the seller's asking price. Something very difficult to do in the current market. Nicole negotiated hard to make sure things like repairs were completed.

Nicole and her team at La Puerta Real Estate Services are amazing. We would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to sell and or purchase a home, you won't regret it.
