After years of working in a larger, national real estate brokerage, and frustrated by what she felt was a one-size-fits-all approach to client counseling, Nancy Watkinson joined Leaf, Realtors after recognizing the advantages she could give her clients by working at a brokerage with a depth of knowledge and experience in the local area and a reputation for giving client-first real estate advice. Nancy sought an environment where she could cultivate client relationships that addressed individual client needs to give her clients every advantage in their real estate transactions.
Nancy’s listening skills have been honed over nearly 27 years of teaching in Somerset County. Nancy’s sensitivity to the needs of her client buyers in helping a client identify home that best fits their current and future needs is at the heart of Nancy’s approach to counseling buyers. Nancy’s lifetime of experience in Hunterdon/Somerset Counties provides a foundation of local knowledge indispensable to out-of-area buyers relocating to our area. Nancy’s unflagging patience and thoroughness have been assets to her clients.
In counseling sellers, Nancy focuses on helping sellers prepare their homes for sale from before the marketing process begins. From advising clients on the best bang-for-the-buck home improvements to how to declutter to maximize appeal, Nancy’s advice has proved invaluable to her clients in helping them find buyers who would pay top dollar in a short period of time.
Nancy is a member of the Garden State Multiple Listing Service (GSMLS), the National Association of Realtors®, the New Jersey Association of Realtors® (NJAR), the Hunterdon/Somerset Association of Realtors® (HSAR), the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA), and is qualified as a Notary Public in New Jersey.
Born in Union County, Nancy moved to Somerset County as a teenager. She earned a BS in Home Economics Education from The College of Saint Elizabeth. Nancy and her husband bought their first home in Branchburg, started their family, then moved to Readington Township where they have lived for nearly 25 years. Nancy’s interests in antiquing and spending time with her family at the Jersey shore make her a great resource to relocating clients on these activities in New Jersey and she also enjoys baking (we’re thrilled about this talent!) and traveling.
