Member of Excellence
Nancy was born and raised in Norfolk. While earning a BS in Finance/Real Estate and a BA in Theater Arts/Dance from Old Dominion University, she was offered an internship from her Real Estate Appraisal professor. In the summer of 1992, she accepted the internship and began her career in Commercial Real Estate Appraisal. She started working full-time as an appraiser in 1994 and in 1998 began working for Peter S. Eckert & Company. In 2007, she earned her MAI designation with the Appraisal Institute and in 2008 her SRA designation. At the time, she was one of only 45 women in the country under the age of 40 to have earned the MAI designation. Nancy attributes her success in Real Estate
Appraisal to her mentor and friend Mr. Peter Eckert, CRE, MAI.
Nancy now enjoys working with Mike Berry and Larry Colorito at Valbridge Property Advisors, a national real estate appraisal firm (formerly known as Axial Advisory Group) with offices in Chesapeake, Williamsburg and Richmond. Nancy’s appraisal expertise is diverse ranging from apartments to shopping centers to industrial buildings. In the last few years, her primary focus has been Condemnation Appraisal. She has enjoyed working on both sides of the spectrum, for the condemning authority as well as for the property owners, and has testified as an expert witness in a number of cases.
Along with her dedication to the Commercial Real Estate Women of Hampton Roads, she is an active member of the Hampton Roads Association Commercial Real Estate and Virginia Beach Town Center Kiwanis. Nancy resides in Norfolk and enjoys spending every spare moment with her husband Wesley and her three precious children Lauren, Weston and Frannie.
Congratulations, Nancy! Your hard work and dedication are greatly appreciated!
