To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business and your business in your heart.” This quote sums up the thriving story of Nancy Pieper, who ranks in the top 1% of all DFW realtors. A realtor for nearly a decade, Nancy’s professional journey is an amalgamation of passion and patience.
“If you ask me about the top qualities a realtor needs to have, patience is one of the biggest,” she said. “Also the ability to manage the ups and downs, which are like a roller coaster all day every day.”
The real estate market, like everything else, has a new normal for both buyers and sellers. On the buying side, a realtor probably writes three to five offers for each client to try to nail down a property. On the listing side, they try to navigate through multiple offers to assist their clients in selecting the request that has the best potential of getting closed. From the way offers are structured to the way sellers’ expectations are addressed, the seasoned agent understands how to pivot with the changes. Nancy goes to extra lengths to ensure her clients get the best advice to prepare a solid plan.”
Nancy is enjoying her dream job – the union of her design skills and her business acumen.
“This will be the last job I’ll ever have, and I don’t anticipate ever stopping,” Nancy said with a wink.
Known not only for her warm personality, tough negotiating, and relentless work ethic, her clients always come back. Testimonials prove why she’s on the top:
Although a real estate agent’s career is richly rewarding, the amount of hard work and dedication it demands is unquestionable.
“The biggest myth about real estate is that it’s an easy job. There’s a lot of emotions involved on all sides of the transaction, as we are dealing with what usually is a family’s largest financial asset,” Nancy shared.
She can’t think of a trip or a vacation where she wasn’t working. Whether it’s maneuvering through a transaction, staying updated with the market, or dealing with everything in between, she is motivated to work every day.
“My happy place is to walk in every day to a home that I love. I want my clients to experience that same feeling every time they walk into their home,” she shared.
Nancy stages her clients’ homes as part of her service. She uses items from her “Decor Depot,” as she calls it, and uses the client’s existing items. No matter what the market is, updated and staged always sells faster and for more money.
She is also a proud member of Coldwell Banker Apex, Realtors®, the largest woman-owned Coldwell Banker in the U.S.
“The level of support, training, and encouragement we receive sets them apart by leaps and bounds. Coldwell Banker Apex is without equal,” she commented.
With a loud and clear motto of ‘take care of others, and they will take care of you,’ the Lantana-based realtor believes that a realtor’s success lies in clients’ trust, for them to feel they are a priority, and to know you have their back.
“I love knowing that they trust me, that they keep in touch with me and support me in my business through referrals.”
Nancy moved to Lantana almost two years ago from Flower Mound, where she raised her family for 30 years. She has made it a priority to get to know and be a part of this beautiful community. With over 400 homes sold last year alone, Lantana residents often move within the community itself. That’s special, and luckily there are some great realtors in this very neighborhood – who knows Lantana better than someone who lives IN Lantana?
Feeling a responsibility to give back to the community, Nancy has started working with and volunteering at Denton County Friends of the Family. This organization supports families affected by domestic violence. According to reports, there were 212,885 victims of family violence in 2018 in Texas. And domestic homicides have more than doubled since the pandemic. Nancy started a neighborhood Home Decor swap that resulted in three SUVs
full of donations to staging and decorating their transitional housing. Neighbors gathered to swap items, but the lion’s share ended up donating to the charity. If you are interested in being a part of this fun and growing initiative, follow Nancy on Facebook (Nancy Pieper Real Estate), where she posts all event announcements. The next event will be in October to coincide with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
At the end of the day, what Nancy takes to heart is: “It’s not about the income, but the outcome.”
