Nancy Duff

RE# 00370805

Nancy Duff was named "The Goddess of Real Estate in Berkeley California" by the New York Times in 2005, and the agents and clients who have worked with her over her 40+ year career know why.

She has been a real estate broker since 1977, giving her vast experience in all types of real estate transactions. Throughout her storied career clients have found her to be an immense source of knowledge and support. She has a master's degree in sociology from San Francisco State University and is also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). The combination of skills often proves quite helpful during stressful transactions. 

Nancy’s experience covers residential, commercial, industrial, vacant land, business opportunities and development. She helped to pioneer the live/work concept in the east bay. Westside Place, an award winning live/work project in Berkeley, was developed by Planet Properties in partnership with Panoramic Interests. Nancy is a member of the Bridge Association of Realtors®, and has served as a member of the city of Berkeley's Zoning Adjustments Board.

Sellers, buyers and developers alike can look to Nancy as one of the best agents in the Bay Area. Come and meet the Goddess.

Our Mission

The mission of Planet Properties is to provide the knowledge, foresight, diligence and support our clients need to succeed in their real estate transactions. Whether buying or selling, residential or commercial, we will strive for the best possible outcome for you.

We Strive To:

  • Remove barriers to ownership by demystifying the process. For most people the world of real estate can be a confusing mess of jargon, forms, and laws. We value transparency and will make sure our clients are always fully informed.
  • Demonstrate integrity worthy of our client’s trust. We maintain strong relationships throughout the industry which help us broker the best deals. We do that by always putting our client’s interests first and treating all parties involved fairly.
  • Provide a human touch that sets our service apart. Internet brokerages promote their software as a replacement for skills and experience. While we use the latest technology we provide the personal service and understanding that algorithms simply cannot replace.

How We Serve:

Working with Planet Properties means having our full support from start to finish. Our service is personal, thorough, and consistent. Whatever your real estate goals we are the brokerage to help you see them through.

Buyers (especially first time buyers), we will help you through the process of finding just what you want. We can provide referrals to the best loan brokers, inspectors, insurance agents, and other real estate professionals necessary to complete your transaction. We will work hard to get you your dream home and will include a free one year home warranty to get you started in your new home.

Sellers, call us for a free evaluation of your property. We can provide you with the most up to date sales of comparable properties. We offer expertise in staging and preparing the property for listing. Then we will set ourselves to marketing your property; our goal is to make the listing as visible as possible to any interested buyers. In addition to posting on the Multiple Listing Service we can also build an individual website that will speak to our target audience. At your discretion we can also use social media to share this site and get the attention of buyers far and wide. And of course we will hold your property open weekly for brokers and the public.
