Nicola Wakelin
(239) 451-9351

Nicola Wakelin is certainly not afraid of challenge or change. She and her family relocated to Naples, Florida from Seattle, Washington. For over 12 years they visited family in Naples and dreamed about one day making it their permanent home.  

One big draw for Nicola was the opportunity to join her Mother-in-Law, Rae who had built a successful real estate business in Naples since 2003. They have proven to be a formidable team and have been recognized as top producing agents.

Nicola’s greatest satisfaction as a real estate agent is helping her customers realize their dreams. She says, “When we lived in Seattle we dreamed of a new life in paradise where we could enjoy warmth and sunshine year-round. It took some time but we finally figured out how to turn our dream into a reality. Now it is an honor that I get to help other families accomplish this same dream.” 

Nicola has earned her Master Certified Negotiation Expert certification, GRI and ePro designations. She is a new construction specialist with around 50 new home sales.

Nicola’s family includes her husband of over 20 years, Jeff and two children, Natalie and Riley. Nicola likes to stay active. She works out almost every day and also likes to run, hike, read, listen to music, paddle board, spend time with her family, and travel.

Jeff, his wife Nicola and their two kids moved to Naples in 2013. Prior to their move here, the four of them would come to Naples to visit his parents. Jeff’s mom Rae Wakelin has been selling real estate in Naples for over 20 years. When Jeff’s family moved to Naples, Nicola joined Rae and started The Wakelin Team.

Jeff graduated from The University of Massachusetts in 1989. Since then, he has spent over 30 years in sales roles for a variety consumer packaged goods companies like SmithKline Beecham, Unilever & Reckitt Benckiser. Jeff has successfully managed multimillion dollar businesses for those companies. Over the course of his sales career, he found his passion was working with smaller CPG companies to dramatically increasing revenue.

Jeff recently got his Real Estate license and is excited to join The Wakelin Team. What Jeff is most looking forward to is working with and learning from two phenomenal mentors that can help guide him. His sales experience and knowledge of the Naples market will be a huge asset to help make him successful.

Jeff enjoys playing golf and recently joined The Strand, a 27-hole Country Club community in Naples. He will be the golf community expert on the team. He also enjoys rooting for all the Boston sports teams. Nicola and Jeff’s oldest daughter Natalie is a sophomore at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. Their youngest, Riley is a senior at Gulf Coast High School.

Rae Wakelin
(239) 398-0028

For Rae Wakelin, a self-described navy brat, “home” is a particularly poignant concept. She emigrated from the Boston North Shore region to Naples, Florida two decades ago.

“For the first time in my life, I can go into a grocery store and usually see someone I know. I love the weather, and I love my friends. “

What Rae loves most about real estate is, “Meeting people and guiding them through the real estate buying/selling process.”

Rae completed a Certified Negotiation Expert Course 2 years ago and thought it was one of the best real estate courses she had ever participated in. She was so inspired that she became certified in the course as a trainer.

In the community Rae finds time to support the Naples Historical Society, the Naples Zoo, the USO and the Wounded Warriors Project. She enjoys swimming, reading, needlework, travel and rooting for Boston sports teams.

Rae and her husband Fred share their Kensington Golf & Country Club home with their very entertaining cat, the Big Boy.
