Real Estate by Design
Nancy’s marketing strategy is represented by the tagline that sums up her philosophy—Real Estate By Design; a creative approach to real estate. Nancy’s ten-plus years of experience in residential design with her firm, Powers Design, in addition to her twenty-plus years experience in renovation, restoration and new construction uniquely qualifies her as a guide to both buyers and sellers. Buyers benefit from Nancy’s ability to assess the value of new construction, as well as, vintage homes, properties in need of total restoration, or simple resale—all within the context of location and an ever fluctuating real estate market. Sellers benefit from Nancy’s design-based approach in numerous ways: she is able to point out design or remodel potential to prospective buyers so that they can visualize themselves in the home; compelling staging for both showings and photographs (two very different objectives); and a rolodex of phenomenal service referrals for home upkeep, care, and cleaning.
The Devil is in the Details
A business graduate and marketer by training, Nancy’s ability to quickly compile and analyze real estate market data and other relevant market information ensures that her clients always have the best information to make their property decisions. More importantly, Nancy is able to utilize this market information and turn the data into results. Her clients benefit from a consultative approach, tailored to their needs—from pricing and marketing to timelines and communication. Negotiating contracts clearly and strategically is of paramount importance and Nancy’s clients benefit from her abilities as a skilled and persuasive communicator. She is an avid adaptor of new media for real estate applications while continually evaluating traditional media. Sellers benefit from Nancy’s ability to market their properties on Facebook, YouTube, national real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia and property specific websites created for each of Nancy’s listings. A wide variety of print publications geared to Chicago’s north suburbs are also utilized. Nancy’s market research background also leads her to the forefront of search engine optimization techniques so that once a seller’s property is listed on the web, it is prominently highlighted within searches. Buyers can be anywhere; it’s important that your home is too.
Loving North Shore Family Life
Nancy fell in love with the North Shore as a college student while visiting a classmate in Winnetka. She moved to Chicago two years after graduating from Miami University and has lived on the North Shore for 26 years. Along with her husband, Jim, Nancy has raised three daughters here and has greatly enjoyed her time volunteering at their schools—from pre-school to New Trier. Nancy is an enthusiastic dance devotee beginning with her daughter’s involvement in the Evanston Dance Ensemble and is passionate about all things dance in Chicago—The Joffrey, Hubbard Street and Chicago River North dance companies are perennial favorites. Nancy’s favorite leisure activities revolve around discovering new interior design blogs, skiing in Colorado, cooking with her daughters and spending time in Martha’s Vineyard and Beaufort, SC with her family.
