About Robert Nichols My name is Robert Nichols and I am a father, husband and workout enthusiast with a passion for real estate. I was Born and raised in Boston Massachusetts. As a kid my family faced many struggles and it wasn’t easy for us, but my father made many sacrifices to keep us safe and provide for my sister and I. My parents got divorced when I was 8 and my sister was just 5 years old. My father became a single Dad raising two young children on his own. To make matters even more complicated, a recession hit in the early 90’s and he was laid off from his job just as he entered into single fatherhood. By age 9 I knew all about the economy was and how it worked. I was a child living through the financial struggles of a recession and coping with abandonment. But the story doesn’t end there.
One thing I know for sure, is that in life those who succeed are able to persevere through adversity. While my Dad was thrown into a major crises due to circumstances beyond his control, he didn’t abandoned us. Instead, he had the poise to quickly reach out to his large family (he is one of 11 children, I have 4 kids and folks think I’m crazy). One of my uncles who owned several rental properties took us in and my grandparents allowed my sister and I to spend the summer with them in Cape Cod. This allowed my father to focus on getting back on his feet and gave him time to figure things out. He was able to do side work to make ends meat until he landed a full time job. 4 years after the divorce he remarried, and while it wasn’t an easy journey, he was able to put my sister and I through college even though he didn’t graduate from college himself. He told me at a young age that he was going to make sure my sister and I went to school and he made it happen. I am forever grateful for his courage, character, integrity and love for us. Close
