So, who is Nancy Stewart, the red headed Associate Broker with Realty 1 of New Mexico? She is a transplanted Mid-Westerner who came here via Ohio, Wisconsin, California, Minnesota, Wisconsin again, Texas, Illinois, Texas again, California again and finally New Mexico! Whew! Quite a trek, though it didn't happen over night.
While Nancy relocated from California to New Mexico in 1998 she didn't began her career in real estate until 2009. Nancy's career up until 2007 began in public health and moved into higher education as a Dean of Nursing & Allied Health and as an Associate Vice President of Educational Services educating and creating opportunities for students to pursue programs and earn degrees that led to positions in many industries. Her background in science, management, research, working with licensing regulations and enjoying teaching have served her well in real estate. She always considers herself to be an educator who also happens to be a realtor/associate broker. She sees her role as educating and helping people become informed so they are well prepared to navigate the complicated work involved in today's real estate marketplace. She wears her educator hats daily as she teaches, informs, explains, researches, facilitates understanding, provides support and ultimately celebrates with her clients at the end of the real estate process. She does all of this wrapped in great customer service and continually strives to be her clients' perfect 10!
Nancy is a full service/full time broker with a real passion for real estate. She enjoys meeting with her clients in person to understand the uniqueness of their needs and preferences and their understanding of the steps involved in buying and selling. She takes a personal interest in every client and wants them to remember her for the outstanding service she provided.
Nancy was always been intrigued with real estate. Her sister and brother-in-law have had their own brokerage for decades. When she retired from higher education in 2007 she knew she wanted to become involved in real estate. She joined a group of women entrepreneurs who formed a real estate investing consortia that focused on investing and rehabbing property. She spent time with a mentor learning how to rehab property in San Antonio, TX. This experience prompted Nancy to get her broker's license as no one in the consortia had a license. When the consortia broke up Nancy decided to join a brokerage in Albuquerque. She initially joined The Vaughn Company which proved to be a mistake as the owner was arrested/indicted for carrying out a Ponzi scam that lead to the company's chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Nancy joined Coldwell Banker Legacy in 2010 and moved to R1 of New Mexico in December 2014. R1 is known as the future of real estate and is now the largest real estate brokerage in the State of New Mexico. R1 and Nancy both believe in treating clients like family and friends for life.
What does Nancy like to do when she is not helping people buy or sell real estate? Since moving to New Mexico almost 20 years ago she has become a lover of Native American culture and art. She frequents art events in New Mexico and Arizona and wouldn't miss the annual Indian Market in Santa Fe each August. She has collected many pieces of art, pottery and jewelry from artists that she has developed friendships with over the years. She appreciates the culture, spectacular landscape, sunsets and green chile and understands why New Mexico is called The Land of Enchantment!
