About Me

Hi!  I'm Nicole McGregor.  A former Television Journalist.  A current Mommy/wife/decorator/remodeler/Realtor/Household CEO/Party Planner/Cook and DIYer.

This blog is called One Picky Chick... because I feel like we've only got One Life - One opportunity to get it right.  I'm going to try my best... to do the best with it.

I've always been picky.  It started as a young child and has never stopped.

Now, I put that picky to the test when I try to find buyers and sellers the right house, in the right neighborhood for the right price.  But I don't stop there.  My passion has long been turning houses into homes so I also help people decorate and make the right remodeling choices!

As a young woman my personality led me to be a speaker and writer.  I was a television journalist for almost 20 years.  I went to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA as a Communications major.  After graduation, I studied journalism at Stanford.   My first "real job" was at a tiny TV station in Victorville, CA.  I soon moved to an NBC station in Kennewick, WA.  Next up was Spokane, WA (ABC).   After several years there, I traveled back home to Orange County, California.  where I anchored the nightly newscasts for a cable station called the Orange County News Channel (OCN).

Finally, I rounded out my career at the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, AZ on their morning show.   It was also during this time I attended Real Estate School and got my Real Estate License.  After I got married and bought my first house, homes, decorating, DIY and remodeling became my next love.   I currently work for Posh Properties.  In addition, I help people decorate and remodel their homes.  The bug has bitten and it's turned into a passion with a profit!

In 2011, after the birth of my second child, I hung up my microphone for the last time.  I no longer wanted to tell others stories... I wanted to tell my own.  I started this blog as a way to do that.  We all have a story to create.  And we all have just one chance to do it.

People still ask me, "do you miss your former job?"  My answer is simple:  no.  I'd be missing out on so much more if I was still doing that.  So, with this blog I write about what I love.  Parenting, married life, remodeling, houses, party planning, decorating, cocktails, food, kid ideas, some health, some products and a teeny bit of fashion.  I think I may be the luckiest, picky person in the world.

Come with me!  I'm One Picky Chick...
