There’s no mystery to Nancy Messina’s successful career in sales. It’s all to do with her boundless energy, her irrepressible passion for real estate and the genuine warmth of an Italian grandmother that is never too far from the surface.
For two decades Nancy has been selling house and land in new developments across Western Sydney for Australia’s biggest development companies, among them Clarendon Homes, Mirvac and Lend Lease.
Nancy’s approach to real estate is different to most, offering a service that is equal part buyer’s agent, sales agent, advocate and adviser. Her experience in the new house and land market, and many years liaising with builders, makes her an invaluable asset on both sides of the housing equation.
Navigating home designs and finance can be difficult for the young and not so young and Nancy sees herself bridging the gap to ensure a good sale on the one hand and a wise purchase on the other.
The west of Sydney is familiar territory to Nancy. Migrating to Australia with her parents in 1956 they settled first in Newtown, before moving to Fairfield where they enjoyed the luxury of a home and backyard with room for chooks and vegetables. From the age of eight she was cooking for the family and caring for her disabled sister while her parents both worked two jobs to carve out a future in their new homeland.
Having worked all her life in many fields and industries, Nancy found her forte in real estate, where her quick mind, understanding of the market and natural warmth were in high demand.
