Rose Properties, Inc


Sonja R Nicholson, is the broker and owner of Rose Properties, Inc, formerly ReMax Park Avenue, a real estate company in Winter Park, Florida. Sonja started her real estate career in 1982 went from a single broker office to working with a large condo conversio


n company out of Chicago, then returned back to general real estate. In 1994 to 2007, Rose Properties, Inc exclusively represented a new home builder in many communities throughout the central Florida area. Because of the real estate recession, a decision was made to convert back to general real estate.

In 2010, the office moved to Winter Park, Florida off Park Avenue where the focus was on residential, commercial, new home sales and property management in the central Florida area. In the fall of 2013, Sonja purchased a ReMax franchise and transitioned in Dec of 2013 to ReMax Park Avenue keeping Rose Properties, Inc as a referral company. Sonja stated “ I am continuously grateful to the success and to the many professionals who worked with our company, helped a lot of people make educated, confident, real estate decisions and who had a Passion for Real Estate!” ReMax Park Avenue sold in Nov 2015 and Sonja kept Rose Properties, Inc with a few agents moving to Morse Blvd in Winter Park. Recently Sonja has gone back to a single broker office and is still enjoying helping people with their real estate needs.

Sonja and her husband, Tony Nicholson, say they are blessed and believe in giving back and enriching the community. They feel strong about education, medical and spiritual needs. To name a few of philanthropic endeavors are UCF Nicholson School of Communication; UCF Nicholson Field House; Nicholson Center at Florida Hospital, UCF Nicholson Plaza under construction now; Winter Park Memorial Hospital Nicholson Pavilion under construction now; and recently Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC.

“Tony and I are as retired as we will ever be, however, our commitments to making an impact on the lives of others have been a priority” states Sonja. We are so blessed to have our beautiful family close and care not only about our family, but the community our family lives in and our grandchildren are growing up in. We feel giving back is investing in the future of our children, grandchildren and community.
