Nicole Wright

Nicole has been in the real estate industry for over 16 years, starting as a receptionist at the age of 19 with a large commercial land developer in Southern California. She quickly worked her way up to managing their 18+ office buildings, county buildings and business centers where she worked closely in the purchasing and selling of the commercial properties. This is where she fell in love with real estate and in 2005 she received her real estate license. In 2006 she decided to make the switch from commercial property management and land development to selling residential real estate.

In 2013 she wanted to be closer to family and relocated to Chico from Southern California with her two beautiful children. They are so happy to call Chico their home! With her background in real estate, experience with contracts, attention to detail and excellent customer service skills, Nicole is excited to help the team get your home sold!

Chelle Ando

DRE# 02147052

Chelle joined the Barroso Real Estate team in October of 2017 after being a stay at home mom for 11 years (arguably the most important and challenging profession of them all!) This new adventure with real estate served as just the sort of challenge, community, and fulfilling interpersonal connection she was craving. Chelle moved to Chico in 2008 as her husband began his career at Enloe Medical Center, and found herself eager for a new chapter and level of experience to build on her foundation of customer service and business communications. Today, Chelle is not only the busy mom of 3 kids, but has found a love for working in the real estate industry. After meeting John and his family amidst their children’s hockey league, Chelle knew this new endeavor with the Barroso Real Estate Team was precisely the family oriented, goal driven community entity she was looking to become a part of. Filled with equal aspects of challenge, excitement, and values which aligned with her own, she found herself extremely fulfilled in this niche of Chico’s local business community. She is in the process of obtaining her license in real estate, and will continue her real estate path on the Barroso Team... where her expectations of learning, acquiring valuable knowledge, and family/ oriented small business workplace settings and friendship continue to fulfill and surpass her expectations. Chelle is a valuable member of our team, and we are so fortunate to have her as a model of work and family balance, inspiring us all to live life - personally and professionally - to the fullest!
