How NILE Helps Kirk Hawkins Give Excellent Real Estate Service and Results

A day in the life of a typical Los Angeles real estate agent isn’t like what you see on Million Dollar Listing or Selling Sunset. Historically low-interest rates and inventory have created the perfect storm of a seller’s market. Listing agents are inundated with showing requests and offers. Buyers agents are trying their best to compete for their clients in intense bidding wars.

Agents are working around the clock, pounding the pavement, and squeezing every minute out of the day to maximize their time and clients’ efforts while maintaining some semblance of work-life balance.

This is a reality that is all too common for Kirk Hawkins. Hawkins is not only a real estate agent, he’s also a weather anchor at KTLA 5 News in Los Angeles. A news anchor and realtor in a city filled with side hustlers, Hawkins is perfectly located, but not without some difficulties.

Hawkins prioritizes his property clients while juggling weather duties during newscasts. When he needs to write an offer for a buyer or manage a listing for a seller, he needs to make every second count. Hawkins joined the fast-growing team at NILE in 2021 because he felt the cutting-edge real estate platform would help his clients to sell their homes faster and for more money while simultaneously helping him manage his business more efficiently.

“As a dual-careerist, I have to make sure my work is compartmentalized, organized, and as streamlined as possible,” said Hawkins. “I take pride in delivering optimum results to my clients with excellent service, and that is made possible by NILE. I can’t imagine doing real estate without it now that I’ve seen what it can do.”

Co-Founders Khaled Yatim and Tim Helfrey created the NILE platform to be the digital assistant every real estate agent needs.

“One of Kirk’s latest transactions using the NILE platform was a tremendous success,” said Yatim. “It sold for nearly $100,000 over asking price because of our technology and won rave reviews from Kirk’s clients.”

The Secret Sauce to Kirk Hawkins’ Success

Clients of Kirk Hawkins consistently mention his professional knowledge, willingness to be of assistance, partnership-like qualities, and energetic above-and-beyond nature.

“We were so blown away by how much we were able to sell our home for, we bought Kirk a MacBook!” said one happy client, Andrew K. “The amazing NILE technology he uses kept us informed throughout the whole process.”

His positive reviews are a testament to his kind and people-pleasing nature, and his secret weapon is the NILE support system that allows him to put so much personalized energy into each client’s experience.

“Kirk was so knowledgeable and beyond professional in helping me become a first-time homeowner,” said Jennifer Kelly in a Zillow review. “I’m not exaggerating when I say I would’ve given up on the process early on if I didn’t have Kirk by my side.”

Kirk can keep his energy high, and his demeanor calm and excellent, because of his digital real estate assistant, NILE.

“Kirk was the absolute best!!!!,” said a Condo Buyer in a Redfin review this year. “So knowledgeable of both LA and all things real estate! Our house hunting journey was long but Kirk always kept the energy high and positive! Would 100% recommend anyone to work with him!”
