Nicky grew up on a farm near Daykin and has spent all her entire life in Southeast Nebraska. As the daughter of a cattle producer and farmer, rural lifestyles and work ethics have been engrained deep in her roots. She began her real estate career in 2000 with Davidson Real Estate in Crete, Nebraska. She obtained her Broker’s license in 2002. Nicky and BJ began doing auctions in the area by starting Zalesky Auction in 2003, while Nicky continued to work for Davidson Real Estate. After a few years, they changed the name to what it is today, Zalesky Realty & Auction, when Loren Davidson retired. Nicky and BJ live with their son Cody on the home place of BJ’s family farm near Wilber.
