I am Nicolas Lindman R(B), but you can call me "Cola". I have been a Realtor for 17 years and have had a Broker's designation for the the last 12. I was born on the North Shore of Oahu, and raised mostly on Kauai. I obtained a Bachelor's degree in International Business from HPU (Hawaii Pacific University), where I also met my wife of 17 years. I also spent a few years living in France and am fluent in French which comes in handy.
My experience and intimate local knowledge are very valuable in finding the right fit for my clients. I have represented first time buyers, friends, family, CEO's, and celebrities. I have sold properties from the least expensive home in the neighborhood, to beachfront villas and sprawling estates. I very much enjoy the opportunity to work with and represent such a wide variety of clientele. It brings me great satisfaction to assist in realizing your goals.
I enjoy spending time with my family: my wife, daughter and son, and Sammie (the dog). I am also an avid surfer and soccer player, coach, and fan. Other favorite activities include: golfing, hiking, eating, cruising with friends and traveling.
I look forward to hearing from you.
We got to know Cola over many years of visiting Kauai. When we were in a position to finally buy our dream home, we decided “Cola is our Man”. Cola took careful consideration to find a home that fit our family’s needs. He guided us through the search, negotiation, and escrow process with with great skill and expertise. Cola’s experience, knowledge, and network of other professionals and vendors have proven extremely valuable to this day. Cola proved to be, and continues to be a very reliable representative and friend, with our best interest at heart.
In October 2008 we became aware that the Dolphin House on Hanalei Bay was on the market. Some year earlier I had met Cola Lindman of Country Brokers and asked him to keep a look out for us as we were determined to find a home on Hanalei Bay. The timing was challenging as it was the height of the financial crisis. With the help of Cola we made an offer which, after one counter offer, was accepted by the owners. Escrow was quick and we closed in about 4 weeks.
As a result of the positive experience with Cola and Country Brokers, we later appointed them our property and rental agents, which they have faithfully and professionally fulfilled for over 10 years. Cola would have our unconditional recommendation for anyone looking to buy or rent a house in Kauai.
