Nick Firios Broker/Owner

Nick Firios was born and raised in Orlando, FL, and has lived in Central Florida for over 50 years. He began his real estate career May 2002 and started his first real estate company, Selah Realty Group in 2006, with a vision to service the Central Florida real estate market, offering sellers and buyers a superior level of professional service with agents that are Realtors and stand by the Realtor's Code of Ethics. In mid-2017, Nick purchased a national franchise, United Real Estate, and officially began operating under the new brokerage name of United Real Estate Preferred.


As Nick transitioned into his new owner/broker role with United Real Estate, his goal has been to emphasize to his agents the importance of offering our customers a superior level of professional service. Customers deserve to receive service with integrity, honesty, efficiency, and agents that continue to improve in their trade through continuing education to offer unsurpassed knowledge of the real estate market and how to transact the various types of deals in that market and use the latest in real estate technology. These attributes allow our customers to make sound decisions regarding their real estate sales and purchases. With each transaction, our focus is to stay the course and follow through and meet our customer's needs. Always expect a returned phone call, text, or email. Please contact us today and allow our team of professional Realtors to help meet your real estate desires.
