Niki Forister - Real Estate Agent at Pacific Sotheby's International Realty

Local Expertise. Global Connections.

Growing up in a real estate family laid the foundation for Niki’s career as a Realtor with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty. Her father built custom homes and developed several subdivisions throughout Austin, TX, and North Florida. Her grandfather was inducted into the Home Builders Hall of Fame, elected President of the Texas Association of Builders, and worked for almost 50 years as a homebuilder in Austin, TX. Together, they founded Forister Builders and earned a reputation for building custom homes of superior quality.

Starting at a young age, Niki began to work in her family’s business. She gained valuable experience assisting with floor plan design and planning with architects, leading meetings and selecting materials with interior designers, and helping with all types of remodeling, home staging, and decorating projects. Over the years, she developed a passion for the industry and by the time she was in high school, she earned an award for home design and was nominated as the #1 interior design student. Her commitment to the industry led her to become an interior design apprentice while she continued to work in the family business throughout both high school and college.

Niki attended Pepperdine University and graduated from Florida State University as a Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA and Honors in Psychology. Upon receiving her Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Communications, Niki gained experience working in marketing and also obtained her teaching credential to work as a substitute teacher in San Diego for the North County School Districts.

Her unique background in the real estate industry combined with her experience in marketing, teaching, and design allows her to creatively educate, advise, and guide her clients throughout every stage in each real estate transaction. She understands that buying or selling a home can be an emotionally involved process, so she employs her strong negotiation skills, work ethic, creative thinking, honesty, and eye for detail to ensure her clients overcome any challenges that may arise. Her determination to make each transaction as smooth as possible allows her clients to buy or sell their properties with ease and achieve their goals.

In her leisure time, Niki enjoys running along Sail Bay, playing tennis, traveling, and spending time with her friends and family.
