MR. CLAUDE RÉMY
Occupation: Real estate developer
Location: Lakewood, WA
The strong stoic patriarch of the family, Claude Rémy has only met a few of Nicole's previous boyfriends and is looking forward to getting a good look at his daughter's suitors. He was born in Haiti before departing for the United States with his two younger brothers to join his parents when he was just 10 years old. Claude grew up in Brooklyn and later met his wife, Claire, in college at Washington University in St. Louis.
With a desire to go into international business and affairs, he majored in French and minored in Spanish, spending a year abroad in France and a semester in Spain. After marrying Claire, Claude opened a real estate and commercial financing consulting firm and even partnered with a local Korean real estate company to assist foreign companies seeking real estate in Seoul while Claire served in the military there. Over the last 20 years, Claude has engaged in the acquisition and development of apartments, townhomes and single family residences as a principal for his own accounts.
As for relaxation and fun, he enjoys the theater, traveling, walking, boating, and spending time with his children and extended family. Nicole is the light of his life and he could not be more proud of the woman she has grown into. Claude wants to help his daughter find a genuine family man with a good heart.
