Meet The Curtiss Team


Niki & Dionne

The Curtiss Team has learned the art of teamwork, enabling them to offer their clients the highest level of service possible, seven days a week.

Each member of The Curtiss Team brings unique experiences and background to the partnership. Niki, together with her husband Harry, started in the real estate business in the early 1960's, by purchasing a variety of apartment buildings, residential rentals, and vacation condominiums on the south coast of England. Dionne brings her understanding of diverse cultures and languages; which culminated in her graduation from the University of Bristol, England in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic and Latin American Studies and retaining a fluency in Spanish. 

The Curtiss family relocated from England to California in 1984, and settled in the beautiful Conejo Valley to pursue a lifestyle of sunshine and outdoor activities. When not engaged in selling real estate, they enjoy a variety of interests and hobbies. Niki loves tennis, bridge, dancing and traveling. Dionne enjoys the gym, entertaining and traveling with her husband, Carlo, (who is a commercial real estate consultant), and their two daughters, Gabriella and Isabella.

Niki and Dionne established their family team in 1987. Loving working together and always having lived only a few miles apart in Thousand Oaks, it is very easy to facilitate the teamwork. Because so many of their friends have become clients and vice versa, their business and social lives are intricately intertwined and therefore, it is not only imperative to them that they always deliver the highest level of ethical and honest service, but they desire to do whatever it takes to ensure that their friends and clients get the best service.

The Curtiss Team specializes in the following areas: Calabasas, Agoura, Oak Park, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Simi Valley, Moorpark, Santa Rosa Valley, and Camarillo. While working with a client who desires a location outside of their area of expertise, the team joins forces with a fellow agent who specializes in the client's desired location offering the same level of excellence. Niki and Dionne look forward to welcoming new friends and clients to their network.


Sue Sylvester - Realtor & Team Member

Sue Sylvester immigrated to the United States as a young girl from Zimbabwe, Africa. At the age of eleven she began a career in gymnastics, which lasted for twelve years. Sue was chosen to represent her sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics in the 1980 Olympics in Moscow but due to political reasons, the U.S. decided to boycott the games that year. She was inducted into the Untied States Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 2001.

Sue joined the team in February 2007. She began her career in the Real Estate industry in 1987 and after selling homes in the Conejo Valley for seven years, took some time away to raise her two sons, Justin, who recently served in the United States Army and Jonathan who attends San Jose State University as a business major. Sue and her husband, Jules, have resided in the area for the past 30 years and while travelling the world extensively, still love to call the beautiful Conejo Valley their home. Having always been an advocate for superior customer service, Sue enjoys the challenge of constantly improving the quality of service given to each and every client. Her acute attention to detail and excellent people skills have made her an instant match for the team.


This is the third time The Curtiss Team has provided an invaluable service (two home purchases and one home sale) and each time your advice, professionalism and attention to detail have benefited me in these very important transactions.

Your knowledge of the area was obvious and that was priceless.
