She never once made me feel rushed. Instead, she made it a fun process and kept my spirits up even when it seemed buying a house might be out of my reach. When we finally found "the house," she came up with the perfect amount to bid and walked me through the closing process with enormous patience. I can honestly say you will be in the best possible hands with Nancy. She is a treasure!!
Working with Nancy was as if having a truly concerned, knowledgeable member of the family who only had your best interests at heart. Once she knew what I wanted and relentlessly pursued it for me. She expanded my horizons in regards to what was possible for me and how to get it.
I don't go anywhere without Nancy's business card. Because I love the idea of making someone else's' home buying experience as painless as possible and dreams come true.
Nancy took care of everything, including moral support and cheerleading and keeping my spirits up whenever I panicked. She was always there like a Rock of Gibraltar, just the epitome of wisdom, integrity, street smarts, confidence, and a sense of humor that kept me sane, even when she had me hyperventilating into a brown paper bag I was laughing so hard. I am a completely naive babe in the woods when it comes to real estate, and she held my hand and walked me through every step, and I always felt like I could absolutely trust her. She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.
Nancy Duff is incredibly good at what she does, a master of every aspect of real estate. Her knowledge and experience made a big difference in our being able to get the house we wanted -- and there were competitors. It's not just that she has been at this for decades, but that she loves it and is so insanely good at it.
Nancy Duff is a phenomenal agent. I met many real estate agents when I was getting ready to sell my property. I really didn't feel I needed another and then I met Nancy. I knew she was the right one for the job. I not only got asking price for my house but she was by my side each step of the way and made the process easy, and even fun.
She is a great person and treats you like a truly valued individual, not a means to an end. Working with Nancy was a sheer pleasure and a joy along with a great success.
