Years ago I visited RI with a friend whose parents had just relocated to Bristol. I was blown away by the beautiful coastal communities of the area. Seeing the blue Narragansett Bay from virtually everywhere was truly memorable.
Six years and two states later, my husband and I took a leap of faith and landed in the first rental we could find. It was a tiny little cottage in a town called Barrington. When I realized I could see a distant sliver of the bay from an upstairs window, I was sold!
After teaching at the Primrose Hill School, I took time off to begin raising my two children. Eventually, I got back into teaching and spent 6 years at Red Brick School. My family and I have truly benefited from not just the excellent schools but all that RI has to offer.
My passion for helping others, love of all things real estate related and my appreciation and knowledge of The Ocean State has lead me to join Mott & Chace Sotheby's International Realty.
What to expect from me:
My clients can attest that I truly care for their well being and I’m not just trying to close a transaction. I strive to make every client feel like they're my only client.
For my BUYERS, I go the extra mile by reaching out to collegues and home owners to find properties that aren’t on the market yet. I will also manage your daily search to make sure you are one of the first to see a new property, especially when the market is competetive. I have helped an out of state Buyers make an offers on a properties after doing a facetime walkthroughs of the house and the neighborhood. In a competive market we have to be very creative in securing homes for our client!
For my SELLERS, I can help you plan for best "bang for your buck" updates or improvemets that fit your budget. I will guide you through from beginning to end. Through my company, I can offer amazing photography and video options as well as local/global marketing. Through me personally, I will be there to support your best interests throughout the process.
Nina was referred to me by a friend after I had been working with an agent who wasn’t a great fit for me. Faced with a new client who had been looking for a while in a market that was changing rapidly, Nina was up for the challenge. I was already plagued with RE fatigue but Nina was able to reinvigorate my search with enthusiasm, humor, and hard work. Believe me when I say that my home search was neither easy nor short-lived. It’s so hard to find a charming property with character in a sea of identical generic suburban homes. After much perseverance through many open houses and offers in an insane market, we found the perfect house at a good price! Abigal Borden
"Nina is the best. She sold our house pre-market because she knows the neighborhood and has all the connections. Don't bother looking around just go with Nina." - Elizabeth O'Connell
"Nina is a team player who worked diligently with us to both buy and sell two unique homes. Even when thrown a few curve balls Nina remained calm and professional. She is invested in selling homes in the East Bay and loves promoting all that this area has to offer. We are grateful for her expertise and big smile and would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Nina!" - Louise & Tim Burbank
"Nina was warm genuine very enthusiastic about selling my home. She was quick to answer phone calls emails and texts had on hand a list of names of folks who could paint do inspections et cetera. She certainly knew the neighborhood and was very proactive about searching for a new home for me in a particular neighborhood. She has integrity. I felt I could trust her. I certainly hope I do not have to move again anytime soon but if I did, I would use Nina in a heartbeat!" - Alice Cross
"Nina helped my husband and I navigate two complicated real estate transactions in the East Side of Providence, and I highly recommend her to anyone else looking to purchase or sell a home. She's highly personable very responsive and works hard to ensure all of her clients' needs are met. In addition to her top-notch realtor skills, Nina goes the extra distance to keep your chin up when going through the emotional rollercoaster inherent to buying property." - Jess Ewas
"We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to work with Nina when looking for our new home. Her welcoming nature and warm personality were evident from the first time we met. We knew we would be moving to Rhode Island from New Jersey but had no idea which of the areas surrounding Providence would be the best fit. We met Nina by chance at an open house in Barrington last year and then began looking in several different towns for houses to buy but decided to rent for a year first. As our lease came to an end, we knew Nina was still the person who would find us our dream home. And she did! We are very happy in our new home and very grateful that Nina stood by us for a whole year until we were ready to buy. Her patience and diligence made our transition to a new state easy and enjoyable." - Bryan Monzella and James O'Hara
"Nina helped us sell our single-family Barrington home. In short, Nina was FANTASTIC throughout the entire process! She worked closely with us as we made decisions regarding touch-ups to the home staging photographs and pricing. She was thorough and thoughtful every step of the way. We greatly appreciated her dedication to making sure our home sold in a timely fashion. Compared to our previous home selling experiences Nina went above and beyond! In addition to all her hard work and effort in selling our home, Nina was incredibly personable friendly attentive to our concerns generous with her time, and always professional. When we are ready to sell/buy our next home we will definitely be reaching out to Nina to help us once again." - Ana Abrantes and Clifford Lindsay
"Nina was an incredibly wonderful agent! We are first-time homebuyers who had very limited knowledge about real estate. Nina made the experience fun and exciting rather than stressful. She was energetic and patient always willing to work with our difficult schedules and show us all the homes we were interested in. She was always willing to answer questions and would respond to us very fast - through email text or phone call. She was very knowledgeable of the area which made the process even easier and more enjoyable. We couldn't recommend her enough and hope to work with her in the future again." - Rute & Jamie Rothwell
"Words cannot describe how wonderful Nina was in the handling of our home sale and purchase. She assisted us with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home which was so easy and convenient. She was professional reliable thorough and very patient all through the process. She seemed to be immediately available via phone text or email at all moments which helped relieve stress and make the process painless. We give our very highest recommendation for Nina. She is truly a pleasure to work with in every way!" - Alan and Michelle
