Nancy Warriner joins us with more than a decade of real estate experience in Florida and North Carolina. A native of Panama City in Florida’s panhandle, Nancy chose real estate following years of success in management with the Limited Brands. She led her store to record setting accomplishments in volume and profitability using a needs-based approach to sales.
“I am happiest when I am solving problems. I like to circle around an issue until I can work out a resolution that benefits everyone involved. Creating a winning strategy is so rewarding,” Nancy tells us.
When she started her family, she decided to take a time away from work to raise two daughters. As they approached school age, Nancy chose to change gears and test her sales and management skills in the real estate industry. In the sleepy gulf town of Apalachicola, she joined a firm that specialized in selling historic homes and land. “I really enjoyed working with the buyers in this market who wanted to renovate and restore. They often needed help beyond their initial purchase. I found myself taking on project management for out-of-town clients and it suited me well.”
After relocating to Charlotte a few years later she joined a firm in the Lake Norman area working alongside the owner. “He had a robust business and my role was to keep his work flowing smoothly. As an experienced Realtor I was able to step in at any point in a transaction to expedite the process. The fast pace helped me learn the ins and outs of real estate law in North Carolina quickly.”
Family in Cashiers brought Nancy to the Plateau many times over the years and she dreamed of living in the mountains of Western North Carolina. “At heart, I have always been a small-town girl. But until my daughters were old enough to be on their own, I didn’t feel free to make the move. During a recent visit my brother and his wife introduced me to Mark and Grace Battle. The Battles were looking to grow Old Cashiers Realty and encouraged me to join their firm. I met Ken Fernandez and Mike Blaylock during a later visit and knew it was the right move at the right time.”
Nancy is also the owner of Mountain Goat, a home maintenance company that now specializes in caring for fine homes in the Highlands – Cashiers Plateau. She resides in High Hampton, conveniently right around the corner from our offices. We’re happy to receive daily reports of the progress on the multi-million-dollar renovation of this historic hotel, golf course, resort, and club. The project is spearheaded by Benchmark Resorts & Hotels® and Daniel Communities and promises to transform this iconic and almost century year-old facility.
Like all of us at Old Cashiers Realty, Nancy sees a bright future in real estate on the Plateau and has already grown comfortable with our trademark casually elegant lifestyle in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
