Who we are.

Isabel joined Dickens Mitchener in 1997 and has established herself as a leader in the Charlotte residential real estate market. After twenty-three years in the business, Isabel is still on top of her game.
She grew up in Lake Toxaway, N.C., where her father, John Nichols, developed and sold mountain resort property. Isabel’s brother, John, owns a Charlotte commercial real estate firm, The Nichols Company.
Continuing the family tradition, Isabel married Des Roberts, a founder and principal at the Charlotte commercial real estate firm, Caliber Partners. They have twin daughters - one who attend Charlotte Country Day School and the other attends Myers Park High School.

When she is not helping her clients, Isabel enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing bridge and pickleball, being with her dogs, and vacationing at Debordieu Colony, SC and Lake Toxaway, NC.

Isabel was great to work with on selling our house and finding us a new one that fits our family perfectly. She was always straight forward with the best way to deal with pricing with selling so that our house would attract the most possible buyers. We looked at a lot of houses before we decided on the one that was best for our family. She helped us narrow down the pros and cons of each house we looked at so we could make the most informed decision. In the end we ended up with an amazing house! Thank you Isabel for everything!
