Nancy Heisel


Hi, I’m Nancy

As a realtor in Northern Virginia, I help my clients get out of the real estate catch-22. What’s the real estate catch-22? Let me explain: Have you ever thought that you’ve outgrown your home or you’re ready to downsize, but you still have your current home to sell first? That’s the real estate catch-22 and for a lot of homeowners, that’s what’s stopping them from going from where they are to where they want to be.

That’s where I come in: I help solve this challenge with proven strategies for making sure you can buy and sell at the same time. I ensure a process with less stress, lower costs and more money in your pocket. Timing is critical during the home buying process so I’ve developed a process which allows my clients to meet all the contract, loan, and personal contingencies perfectly. My personal goal is for you to end up with the perfect next home for the next stage of your life whether it be upsizing or downsizing.



“Nancy sold my Arlington home and helped me purchase a new one in Alexandria. She walked me through the entire process and always provided prompt feedback and communication. I have worked with other realtors and none was as professional as Nancy and constantly kept me in the loop. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone looking in the NOVA area.” Roger P

“Throughout the selling and buying process, Nancy was always available. Not a single question or request went unanswered. Since my loan officer recommended Nancy, they clearly had a good working relationship and this proved extremely helpful when I was purchasing my new home.” Scott M



Why I became an Agent

The reason I became an agent was because I was fed up with lackluster and mediocre service I received over the years when buying and selling homes. The advocates that were supposed to be looking out for me and my best interests were only looking out for their paycheck. I wouldn’t have it! I knew I could do it better by creating a process that helps people reach their goals while paying more attention to what clients really needed. I can’t tell you how many clients have said to me,”Wow, we’ve never had a Realtor that really listened to us!”

“Nancy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was super attentive during both our selling and purchasing process, and assisted us in doing both in a very professional manner. We could not praise her enough for her help and personal touch.” Anthony M.

“Buying a new home should be an exciting and fun time, and a large of that is your realtor. Nancy helped make sure my purchase and sale was exactly that. I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Nancy!” Leslie T.

From start to finish Nancy was fantastic to work with. Nancy began by helping us navigate the process balancing our needs and our wants. We saw multiple homes but when we finally settled on the home that best fit our needs Nancy went from being “good” to being “exceptional”. Her expertise in the negotiation process helped secure our home.” Zach R



When I’m not with clients

When I’m not with clients you’ll either find me in the kitchen testing out a new recipe (yes, I will cook for you if you ask nicely), working in my yard to attract more bees & butterflies or trying out something new - an Improv class, rock climbing, trapeze lessons, creating a push-up challenge for myself.

I’m always looking to improve my mind and body. A few years ago, I decided to do 365 days of pushups (I took the 100 day challenge further). Funny enough, clients noticed the tone of my arms and asked me what I was doing. I told them and they joined me for their own push-up challenge until the day of their closing! I promise I won’t make you do push-ups between going under contract and your settlement, but if you want a challenge partner, I’ll join you every step of the way!



“Nancy helped us sell and buy a new home in the area. She goes above and beyond during the entire process and seems to always be available at a moments notice. Anything from attending inspections, contacting contractors, scheduling or just talking through concerns. She is very knowledgeable of the process and if she doesn’t know somethings, will get an answer for you quickly. She never tries to push you or rush you into anything but provides great knowledge, experience and recommendations. Never once through the process were we concerned. We will definitely reach out again for the next move.” Shaan H.

Our overall experience with Nancy was amazing. As first-time homebuyers it is extremely easy to feel overwhelmed with the process. Nancy’s knowledge, professionalism, and responsiveness to our questions and concerns made our process easy and exciting. Her attention to detail and tremendous care for her clients makes Nancy an absolute pleasure to work with. Nancy was such a huge part in finding our perfect home and we are so thankful for her involvement.” Becca M

“Nancy helped us buy our first home and then, when plans changed, helped us sell it. She is a fantastic person and great to work with, always gave us honest advice, and was quick to answer questions and hash through the details since we were newbies.” Lauren D

I know how overwhelming it can feel to think about buying a new home while having to sell your current home. It would be my honor to see if I can help you. Simply email me and tell me a little bit about your situation.
