Nicole Markson

Nicole Markson is an Automotive Expert with 20 years experience in the automotive field. She is a graduate of New York University and The National Automobile Dealers Association Dealer Candidate Academy where she earned her certification to operate an automobile dealership. She started out studying Theater and Communications at NYU and studying voice to become a singer. She began working in the family business at the dealership as a means to earn a living while pursuing her musical career. As time went on, she decided to enter into the family business. Working her way through the ranks, she held the positions of Sales Manager, General Manager and Finance Director and specialized in working with credit challenged customers. It was at this juncture, she discovered her passion for helping women secure the right deal to meet their individual life circumstances. She realized women needed a compassionate, transparent, fair approach to the purchasing process and weren’t being taken seriously. With 15 years under her belt, she left the family business to launch Autoempowerment, a company dedicated to changing the purchasing experience women are subjected to at auto dealerships by recognizing women as a major consumer force. Her goal is to help clients create economic stability by taking back financial control of their car deals, their lives and their financial destiny so they are no longer afraid to deal with money matters. By serving as a personal guide through the purchasing/leasing process, women are able to make informed financial choices, and use the experience to build confidence in the rest of their lives. Nicole’s philosophy is that “a deal is not a deal unless it works for you, and everybody’s life circumstance is unique and deserves careful evaluation in order to execute the right purchasing strategy.” Nicole has helped plenty of men along the way and welcomes them as well. Nicole, dedicated to being a leader in her field, created a video educational series dedicated to teaching women and teens strategies for negotiating amazing deals. She is a radio host on “The Autolab” a live call-in automotive talk show in NYC that educates listeners on automotive matters. She has conducted interviews with Consumer Reports, The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), and leading manufacturers. She has written articles for She Buys Cars, TravelingMom.com and has been quoted in Forbes. She has appeared as an Automotive Expert on ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, Nightline, and CNBC’s Closing Bell. Nicole conducts her own educational seminars and is a public speaker. She covers a range of topics on financial education and personal development. She is also a Breast Cancer Survivor and shares her survival story to help newly diagnosed women make informed choices about their treatment …and how to survive, strive and thrive after experiencing an illness. An avid life learner, she loves reading business books, attending business and motivational seminars, working on real estate projects, taking spin classes, recording music, and can be found weighing in at Weight Watchers.
