The first word that comes to mind when I think about Nancy is loyal! A steadfast Realtor who over the years was very patient and friendly as we took our time... 8 years to find the perfect place we could call our Sonoma home. It was really remarkable to see how Nancy paid such close attention to what we were looking for. She knew exactly what we wanted and continued to search diligently for the perfect dwelling for us. When we finally landed on our new home, she stood by our side with answers to all of our questions and she continues to be there for us as we transition into our dream home. Nancy is a wonderful person who will enthusiastically help out in any way possible. We are so happy and appreciative that our paths have crossed.

We are so fortunate to have met Nancy 10 years ago. Since then, she has helped us navigate through 4 real estate transactions. Nancy brings many strengths to the table. Great Negotiator: She has an uncanny ability to sniff out things the seller has not explicitly said to get our offers accepted! Thorough: From researching zoning at PRMD to dealing with utilities, Nancy understands and communicates what needs to be done and when it must happen. Sparkly Personality: Ever the optimist, her enthusiasm is infectious! Great Follow-Up: Nancy responds quickly to any hiccup that might arise, and is incredibly responsive! We recommend her unequivocally, and have already done so to many of our friends and customers!

Being new to the area, I wanted to work with a Realtor who I could trust. Someone who was established and experienced enough to know the ins and outs of neighborhoods, traffic patterns, and where I could find value for the effort I planned to put in my remodel. I've bought properties before, but this time I was on my own. Nancy provided all I had hoped for and more. She is an incredible listener and a very positive, hardworking person. She was as johnny-on-the-spot helping me and all involved stay informed through my somewhat challenging escrow. I respect Nancy's abilities, enjoyed her humor and determination, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Sonoma.
One of the keys to Nancy’s success lies in her willingness to truly listen to her client’s interests and criteria, thus providing the basis for a focused home search. Her extensive knowledge and history of the real estate market (from vineyard to downtown residential properties) provided great insight to local conditions, which proved invaluable in making informed purchasing decisions. Her enthusiasm and boundless energy was vital to our search efforts and her sharp negotiating skills resulted in our successful home purchase in a competitive marketplace. We highly recommend Nancy Gillespie to prospective home buyers in Sonoma County.

We actually ran into Nancy at an open house while were visiting Sonoma in February. We advised her we were looking for a home in the area and she was astute enough to realise we were serious.She quickly arranged for a meeting at her office in Sonoma and spent time with us understanding what we were looking for in a home. She arranged a visit to a home that was a bit out of our price range, but was clearly somehing that checked all the boxes for what we were seeking. By a combination of tenacity on her part and us finding a home we really fell in love with she worked hard to bring the sellers and us to an agreement we both could accept at the end of May. She also facilited the many pre-close inspections that needed to get done. We are extremely happy with our new home and to Nancy for keeping the fire buring even when at times the deal seemed like it would never get done.
After deciding that Sonoma was the perfect town for our vacation home, we were in need of a seasoned realtor to help us with all of the details of a home purchase complicated by the fact we were from out of state. Through a friend’s referral, we contacted Nancy and were immediately impressed with her knowledge of the neighborhoods and market conditions. Nancy helped us successfully negotiate our purchase and kept the deal on track to close as scheduled. Her communication skills eliminated any issues and concerns we had in dealing electronically. Even after the transaction closed, Nancy helped in our absence with contractors we hired to make some alterations. Nancy went the extra mile to welcome us into this wonderful community and made sure that we will enjoy our new home.
