Nick Askew – President / Owner
As President and owner of Pacesetter, Nick has provided strategy, stewardship, marketing and sales for a multitude of developers resulting in thousands of new homes for home buyers. As Pacesetter celebrates its 25th year specializing in strategic project marketing and consultation for land assembly, to Architects Packages, to producing our Pacebook™ and Critical Pace™ marketing plans, Nick oversees all aspects of his practice.
Nick’s distinctive and unparalleled real estate development methodology and practices like the PS Pacebook™ and Critical Pace ™ marketing and sales plan, has set the company apart from others. Nick provides a level of clarity that mitigates risks and offers confidence for our clients, as well as other industry consultants, as he leads the assembled team throughout every stage of our client’s project.
“I take personal pride and ownership of every project I work on, and I am especially proud of the relationships we have formed over the years with our clients.” “In our business, personal relationships are ultimately what matters most and will drive the best results.”
Nick’s internal leadership and industry knowledge has shaped the Pacesetter team. “I hire good people to do the job and then trust them to do the job,” he says. “Pacesetter is only successful because of the great team in front of me. I prefer to lead from behind, allowing our team to excel in all areas of service we offer, but when it comes to accountability to the client, it’s all on me and that’s how I like it.”
Nick has resided on the North Shore all his life, and as the communities around him expanded, Nick’s perspective, intuition and knowledge have grown proportionately.
