For Nancy Seltzer, “hard work” is not an over-used cliché; it is a way of life.
Nancy was raised in Upstate New York on a dairy farm where work – hard work, tireless work – was the norm. She would rise at 4:00am each morning with her family to begin the daily chores, which included milking the cows, before heading off to school.
In 1981, Nancy moved to Florida, where she eventually raised a family of her own. One of Nancy’s first professional experiences in Florida was managing a real estate office. The owners and associates often encouraged her to become a real estate sales associate. Never one to see herself as a salesperson, Nancy declined. Instead, she obtained a position with the Broward County Public Schools. She began in the school district’s entry-level – and lowest paid – position, “General Clerk.” But, in short time, her supervisors recognized her “can do” attitude, and they continually promoted her. Nancy eventually became the “Curriculum Specialist of Adult Education,” the first person to have held the position without having taught in the classroom. In that capacity, Nancy provided professional development to more than 200 teachers, wrote and managed all federal and state grants for her curriculum area for the school district, and oversaw a staff that supported 32 technical centers, adult schools, and community schools throughout Broward County. Moreover, she achieved this success while raising two children and obtaining two bachelor’s degrees; one in business management and the other in marketing. Little did she know at the time, how valuable her training in marketing and education would be in developing an effective marketing plan for each real estate listing and in assisting every client as they seek to understand the complexities of real estate transactions.
In 2009, Nancy met her current husband. When they decided to marry and began to look for their future home, their realtors kept telling Nancy that she would be an excellent realtor. Nancy was skeptical, as she still did not see herself as a salesperson. However, her soon-to-be-husband encouraged her to give the idea further thought. As Nancy did so, she began to realize that real estate is about much more than sales; it is about tireless work and a conscientious effort to ensure that a client finds the “perfect home.” Nancy was now convinced. And as real estate became Nancy’s passion, all those who had sensed her potential in the profession were proven right.
Clients are often taken by Nancy’s genuine warmth and “bubbly” personality. But Nancy attributes her success to the joy she receives teaching others about the real estate process and helping them fulfill their real estate goals. Nancy takes particular pride in her incomparable customer service, her unwavering professionalism, and her tireless quest to become the very best realtor with whom you have ever engaged.
The work ethic that Nancy developed over the course of innumerable 4:00 a.m. chores has earned her the respect and admiration of real estate professionals throughout the community. Let her show you why.
