Twenty years as a Realtor provides me the confidence to guide you through the real estate services you may require. I handle all transactions with honesty and integrity.

My knowledge and fondness of rural, agricultural and ranch type properties led me to become a Broker/Owner of my own company in Sheridan Wy. I built my own extremely successful company participating directly in the sale of over 10,000 acres of private and state lease lands valued in excess of ten million dollars.

Upon relocating to the Healdsburg area over 17 years ago I continue to handle those types of properties as well as luxury homes, which are often found in the beautiful rural countryside of Sonoma County.

Whether you are considering an investment property, primary home or vacation home my experience will provide you with a rewarding experience. See my referrals on Zillow and Yelp.

Happy Home, Happy People...

I cannot begin to describe the wonderful experience I had with Nancy Neal as the realtor who worked magic to sell my home in Windsor, CA. From day 1, she was engaged and worked round the clock to serve my interests. She even reached out and engaged with a realtor at my new destination and persevered until my needs were met there. All the while, she maintained a sense of honesty and professionalism while being both a counselor and friend. She made what could have been a stressful experience an absolute joy with an above average outcome. Highest praise for this amazing woman!

My property was 1.3 acres and a house built in 1933 on septic and well. There were many issues and Nancy overcame them all. One could say that Nancy is aggressive, but I would say, rather, very interested!. I always felt that I could trust her and that she would protect my interests. I was very satisfied with her service.

As my family and I relocated back into the US, Nancy Neal made us feel like family. Her hospitable demeanor and warmth provided us comfort throughout the stressful period of buying a new home. Not only did she drive us to different locations, but she also gave us great insights into the surrounding towns and communities. In short, she took care to match our young family with an ideal community. She would comment on parks and schools which would be perfect for our two children and for our pets. In addition, she made contacts for us to assist us in getting our house ready. Her communication with us, either through email or phone or through online document signing, was always immediate, professional, and caring. This home-buying experience was definitely enriched because of Nancy's help. She comes highly, highly recommended!
