Nancy Jenkins Named Realtor of the Year

Realtor of the Year Nancy Jenkins (right) with last year's winner, Kathie Desautels. (NVBR)

What qualities go into making a great real estate agent? Friendliness, professionalism, experience, persistence, knowledge, patience, determination, and chutzpah, just to name a few.

According to members of the Northwestern Vermont Board of REALTORS, Nancy Jenkins has these qualities in abundance. This year, Nancy was named the 2012 NVBR REALTOR of the YEAR!

On May 22, NVBR presented Nancy with the distinguished award, at its annual gala honoring realtors of distinction. Nancy's family and team were there cheering her on.

Nancy has been helping families buy and sell homes in northwestern Vermont since 1980. Over the years, she has made a name for herself as THE source for real estate expertise and marketing in Vermont.

Her bold advertising (popping up on CCTA buses and shopping carts) and customer perks (like the Annual Movie Day and free moving trucks) have earned her a reputation as a trailblazer and a business leader.

As her daughter Alison shared in Nancy's award video,  "Growing up in a real estate household was always fun. People would know Nancy. They'd say, Oh, I saw your mom on the side of a bus. Oh, the shopping cart had your mom. She was always doing things ahead of other people. So it was really standing out."

Her youngest daughter Amanda added, "She can always get a lot done. And that's what she's taught me: You can make anything happen, you can succeed at anything."

NVBR's Realtor of the Year award doesn’t just go to top real estate producers. It goes to agents who have given their hearts to the community through dedicated community service.

Nancy is on the board of the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington and brings her support to many local groups, including Women Helping Battered Women, Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, Go Red for Women, and the United Way of Chittenden County.

"I think Nancy does what she does for the Boys & Girls Club because she is a leader. She is very action oriented," says Mary-Alice McKenzie, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Club of Burlington.

"I think there's something in her soul that reacts against injustice. When she became aware of the number of children in her own community who are struggling with the effects of poverty, she did what caring people do. They look at themselves and say, How can I make this better." 

This year marks the first time that Nancy was recognized by NVBR as REALTOR of the YEAR for her distinguished service as a top-notch estate agent and a passionate community supporter.

Congratulations for this well-deserved award!

Nancy Jenkins Shares Local Analysis on Housing Sales, in Burlington Free Press

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

Did you see Nancy Jenkins in the Burlington Free Press last Saturday, Jan. 21? 

She appeared in a block quote, next to an AP article titled, "Homes sales up, offering hope for housing recovery," by Derek Kravitz. 

She shared local analysis on why the housing market in Chittenden County has not yet reflected the jump in sales that was seen nationally in December. Here's what she had to say:


"We follow the major markets; we always have. We're two to three years behind Boston and New York; that is what I've seen happening all the time. So that's a good sign if they're moving more houses, we'll be following in their trail."

Nancy Jenkins Team Helps Win a Challenge Grant for the Boys & Girls Club!

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

We are very proud to announce that the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington is the recipient of a 2011 Prudential Global Volunteer Day Challenge Grant.

The club will receive a $1,000 grant from The Prudential Foundation, in recognition of its committement to improving the lives of children and families in Burlington. Congratulations to all of the wonderful kids and staff at the club who contribute so much to our community.

The grant comes as the result of a special Dinner & Internet Essentials Night held at the Club, on September 29, 2011, that was organized and led by the Nancy Jenkins Team. Our team had help from an enthusiastic group of volunteers, made up of clients, customers, and vendors.

The Boys & Girls Club of Burlington has served area youth since 1942. Their mission is to inspire and enable community youth to realize their full potential as productive, healthy, responsible and caring citizens. They offer programs for children and teens in grades K-12.

"Entrenched poverty has escalated," says the club, "and we have expanded our services that focus on the basic needs of the children we serve--food, clothing, and adult guidance."

The Nancy Jenkins Team has been a long-standing supporter of the Boys & Girls Club, organizing regular dinners at the club's Kids Cafe and assisting with promoting other club events. Nancy Jenkins serves on its Board of Directors.

Says Nancy, "We really enjoy meeting the kids and working with clients and cusomters during the meals we organize for them a few times each year. Every child is a gift and every child has unique strengths that contribute to our community."

Prudential's Global Volunteer Day is celebrated annually on October 1. It brings together over 30,000 volunteers worldwide participating in more than 800 projects in 11 countries. It is an initiative of The Prudential Foundation, which invests over $25 million annually in grants that support the revitalization of communities and support Prudential employees' community engagement efforts.

Our sincere thanks goes to The Prudential Foundation--and the many people who participated in our Global Volunteer Day event--for their generosity.
