Yes model it with quad mesh and then smooth it with Catmull Clark, it is quite easy, it is the way of doing in 3ds max and other low poly modelling that the use mesh smothening.
So make a rough shape with NURBS then use that to make some quad mesh on it.

Or transform the rough shape to quad mesh via a mesher, the best for free
