The Story of NV Realty Group
A Legacy of Dedication, Commitment, and Hard Work
A Legacy Reborn
NV (Nicklaus Vance) Realty Group was established in 2003 under the leadership of Michael Nicklaus (the youngest son of golf great Jack Nicklaus), his four siblings, and his brother-in-law, Todd Vance. Originally known as Golden Bear Realty, the company began with only four agents in a tiny workspace that looked more like a broom closet than a real estate office.
Since then, it has grown tremendously and currently operates with more than 180 agents in two states: Florida and South Carolina. The corporate office remains in North Palm Beach, Florida, with additional offices in Jupiter, Delray Beach, and Stuart. In South Carolina, NV Realty Group has office locations in historic downtown Charleston and Kiawah-Seabrook Islands.
The Story Continues
Celebrating the company’s 15-year anniversary, Michael and Todd spent a great deal of time reflecting on the past accomplishments and future goals for the company. They envisioned a company that goes well beyond real estate - one that would be viewed as a luxury lifestyle brand. “My father created the Golden Bear brand, and it’s allowed us to build a solid foundation for this business. Yet, we are bigger than one person, and we want our name and company to reflect that. For this reason, our two families of Nicklaus and Vance created NV Realty Group,” says Michael.
The new brand mark focuses less on the name itself and more on the agents who represent it. The company plans to promote its agents individually and propel their business to new heights through innovative technology, personal marketing, and full administrative support.
Honoring the Beloved Golden Bear
As a boutique-style business, NV Realty Group is different from other real estate companies in that it cares more about the success of its clients and the respect of the community than it does corporate profits. In fact, one of the founding pillars of the company is its dedication to impact the local community. Honoring the legacy of the beloved Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus, the company gives a portion of its proceeds annually to the Nicklaus Children’s Health Foundation, a world leader in paediatric care. Additionally, the company consistently supports other children-centered charities including Juvenile Diabetes Association, Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation, Els for Autism, MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, and Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) to name a few. Jack and Barbara Nicklaus have dedicated their lives to helping children’s causes, and NV Realty Group promises to continue that tradition.
“We owe our humble beginnings to my parents and their commitment to family, value, and integrity. Truly, their values set the foundation for our company, and Todd and I aim to continue that legacy through NV Realty Group. As we expand into new markets and opportunities, we promise to provide the best possible representation, one that befits my parent’s expectations of excellence and integrity.”
