Nolan Finn

Buyers Agent

Nolan is a native of Chicago and has lived in St. Petersburg since 2004. His first career in fundraising for a national non-profit organization resulted in Nolan’s moving to seven cities across the country. These relocation experiences lend to his awareness of the excitement and trepidation that comes with living in different areas.

For the past seven years Nolan has been in advertising sales throughout Pinellas County. He is familiar with the many unique neighborhoods in St. Petersburg. Additionally, his experience in residential redevelopment/flipping homes in the Tampa Bay area gives him insight on how to find the true value of a seller’s home and the best ways to express the quality of that home to potential buyers.

Nolan’s high energy to find his clients the very best properties makes him a valuable member of The Mesimer Team. He understands the importance of keeping the lines of communication open throughout the entire real estate purchasing and selling process and works hard to ensure positive outcomes for his clients.

Nolan is active in community events and lives in the Historic Kenwood neighborhood with his partner John and their Cocker Spaniel Jake.
