CLIENT-CENTERED: A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO REAL ESTATE

Whether helping people find homes that they love, sell homes that no longer meet their needs, or organize the homes they’re currently in, Nancy Nino is passionate about providing services that enhance her client’s island lifestyles.  

Her primary focus is to understand what her clients want and need at the deepest level. Consequently, her goal is to provide customized, personalized, timely, and compassionate service that helps connect each client with just the right home for them given their vision, their needs, and their season of life. 

T.S. Eliot said, “Home is where one starts from.” The youngest of ten kids, Nancy “started from” a big, cozy, rowdy home that was full of love. Home was a place of great joy for her throughout childhood and beyond…

And isn’t that what the ideal home is? In its highest sense, "home" is a place you want to be!  

 

A FAMILY LEGACY IN REAL ESTATE

Nancy comes from a long line of real estate owners and investors. Her maternal and paternal grandparents were owners and investors in Northern California real estate, a legacy which was passed down to her parents and ultimately her generation where all her siblings are active in the field.  

She has over 20 years experience as an investor in residential and commercial real estate in six different California counties, plus a condo home in Honolulu.

She has personal experience in multiple 1031 exchanges and works regularly with accounting and financial planning professionals to maximize real estate profits and apply sound strategy to my real estate investment approach.

 

THE ROAD TO REAL ESTATE

Born and raised in Northern California, Nancy earned her BA in English from Santa Clara University and MFA in Creative Writing from San Jose State University. She worked for eight years in marketing communications, event management, and project management at my undergraduate alma mater, Santa Clara University.

Working in that fast-paced, ever-changing dynamic of event management, she honed her skills at working well under pressure (think the 1980’s “Dry Idea” commercial… “Never let them see you sweat!)

Simultaneously, her obsession with the details and her ability to manage multiple concurrent projects in that position primed her for the 24/7 life of a dedicated Realtor.  

A life-long learner, she took every opportunity in the university environment to grow her skill sets in marketing, communications, online media, and personal networking, all skills which are highly valuable in the work of a Realtor.

Eager for adventure and the prospect of perpetual warm weather, she moved to Hawaii on January 1, 2008. Within months of arrival, she started a professional organizing business, devoted to help people have less stress, more time, and greater joy through a more organized lifestyle.

For nearly a decade, Nancy and her Aloha Organizers staff have been assisting retirees, families, and busy professionals in their desire for greater organization and peace of mind in their homes and businesses.  

 

THE ROAD TO COLDWELL BANKER PACIFIC PROPERTIES

Nancy's time spent with organizing clients in their personal spaces impressed upon her the concept of “home” as a place that supports and sustains you. To that end, in 2016 she got her real estate license and become a Realtor Associate with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties.

She chose to hang her license with Coldwell Banker for multiple reasons, including the longevity of the firm (founded in 1906), the strength of its infrastructure and national brand, as well as the network of 600+ agents on the island of Oahu alone!

While she's still involved at the management level of Aloha Organizers, her organizing clients are primarily serviced by her capable and dedicated staff so she can focus on the needs of the real estate business.

THE FUN STUFF

Nancy loves hanging out with her friends and hanai parents (Maureen and Dennis), as well as visiting family on the mainland whenever she can. She likes to nerd out on books about real estate, business, God, and wellness, and she loves to hike, play tennis, cook, and laugh excessively.

"Start to finish Nancy is an outstanding Realtor. She is the paragon of professionalism and highly distinguished from her peers. I would recommend her to any of my friends without hesitation. She took the time out of her personal life on nights and weekends to help me find exactly what I was looking for and equipped me with the information I needed to make an educated decision as a buyer. She truly sets the standard for the profession and demonstrates the character that all realtors should strive for. "

"Nancy was truly exceptional...she was quick to do the work, prepared for placing my 2bedroom, 2bath townhouse for sale by "Staging" it so very well...I couldn't readily recognize my unit from the photos when I saw them on the computer! I saw charm and beauty, in and out, the living areas and courtyard!! She had it spruced up very quickly, had an "open house" with two buyers in a very short time. She did the best job for me. She also did the same for a friend who bought a unit through her good services. And my friend's friend from the mainland bought another unit as she helped him by taking care of all the details to his greatest satisfaction. I thought..."Wow"! ...maybe she could do to as fine a job for me... and she really did!!! I liked the fact that she often communicated with me, so it did not feel like it was as "daunting-a-task" that it had seemed to me, because of how she worked gave me an assurance that she could bring the sale to completion! "

"Nancy was relentless in helping us find our house. We worked with her for over a year, most of which was while we lived in Florida. She overcame the distance, the time difference, the obstacles associated with not being able to see properties first hand, the Covid pandemic restrictions, and just about everything else one can imagine. She made countless special trips to properties on our behalf. These included personal video tours that she would send to us via WhatsApp. I cannot count the number of questions that Nancy fielded from us and put the time and research into getting us answers for each of them. Nancy was extremely thorough in the closing process. She found an error in the tax structure that everyone missed except her. Despite being assured by the lender that it was correct she did her due diligence and stood by her position. This saved us as buyers a significant amount in our monthly mortgage. We simply cannot thank Nancy enough for the hard work that knew no limits."

  -Stan and Cathy Tribble, Client

""Nancy was the best realtor I worked with over the years in all my numerous purchases and sales of my properties. The property we bought had a ton of work done recently, so we had numerous inspections, and Nancy was always prompt, first to the property with all the doors unlocked for the various inspectors as well as my wife and I. Through the purchase process, many zoning, code and other problems arose, and Nancy always was on the phone within minutes, trying to find us answers to our various questions. She helped us renegotiate to get a seller credit to cover closing costs, and then helped us again, when the appraisal came in below our offer. We ended up saving a ton of money because of her hard work and are truly grateful for her professionalism and friendship. We still have a group text between my wife, Nancy and I, and are always sharing house projects that we are doing at her request! Nancy is a great realtor, she has my recommendation to any family/friends looking to buy or sell"
