Nicholas Palance is an award winning top producing NYC real estate broker, executive, and real estate tech startup founder with extensive experience selling prime real estate all over New York City from Fifth Avenue co-ops, West Village penthouses, expansive SoHo lofts, and Upper West Side condos to Brooklyn Brownstones and Victorians. Nicholas is the Founder & CEO of his real estate tech startup, Stacks, as well as Nicholas Palance Real Estate LLC. Nicholas' reputation for integrity, creative deal structuring, discretion, and carefully listening to his clients is the cornerstone of his success.

During his first year in the business, Nicholas was named Rookie of the Year at Brown Harris Stevens. In 2012, Nicholas won the prestigious "1st Place Deal of the Year Award" by The Real Estate Board of New York for closing the industry's most challenging deal in New York City. Nicholas was selected by Hall Willkie and the Co-Chairmen of Terra Holdings to serve as the firm's youngest Executive Vice President, Managing Director of Sales overseeing sixty seasoned agents in Brown Harris Steven’s thriving Park Slope Brooklyn office. This experience rapidly heightened Nick’s exposure and strengthened his ability in his current role as a top broker in Manhattan and Founder & CEO of Nicholas Palance Real Estate LLC. The majority of Nick’s business comes from repeat clients and referrals. For investors, Nick identifies suitable properties, facilitates the sale, and also keeps their assets rented at top levels.

In late 2018, Nicholas launched two new ventures. First, Nicholas realized his lifelong dream of owning and operating his own NYC-based real estate brokerage. Second, Nicholas personally designed and launched a real estate technology company called 'Stacks - for Agents, by Agents.' Learn more at and

Upon graduating early with high honors at Northeastern University, Nicholas excelled at PricewaterhouseCoopers as an expatriate tax consultant to Wall Street's top investment bankers at Lehman Brothers, Nomura, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Dresdner Kleinwort. Thereafter, Nicholas became, recruited and managed a team of financial analysts within the music industry at EMI. Nicholas' team serviced the accounts of Miles Davis, The Beatles, Norah Jones, and Keith Urban. Nicholas was ultimately promoted to handle the entire Capital Records repertoire and Beatles catalogue. Despite this success, Nicholas decided to follow his entrepreneurial instincts in the family business: real estate.
