Nicole Exposito joined The Hechtman Group in 2022 as an executive assistant to managing partner Jim Hechtman. In this role, Nicole supports Jim with his day-to-day activities, scheduling calls and meetings with clients, and writing and drafting proposals.


A Chicago native, Nicole moved to Thousand Oaks, California to attend California Lutheran University before moving back to Chicago. Prior to joining The Hechtman Group, she worked for real estate agency M & J Wilkow, and The Clare, a senior independent living community.

Now a member of our team, she describes The Hechtman Group as “organized, kind, and chill.” Nicole chose the firm for the positive and collaborative team environment and comradery with her peers.

When she’s not supporting the management team, Nicole enjoys playing with her hamster Dobby, eating Spanish tapas at Café Ba Ba Reeba, or traveling to California to visit friends and enjoy the nice weather.
