With a background in theater as well as teaching, Nancy Jarrell has a knack for understanding people. Eight years of coaching high school students in performance art have given her a unique perspective in sensing the needs and wants of her real estate clients.
As a Charlotte Area native, Nancy attended UNCC for her undergraduate degree in Theater Education. After moving to New Jersey in her twenties, she earned a Master’s degree in Theater at Rowan University.
After returning to NC, Nancy was encouraged by a friend who always told her that her love of people would fair well with real estate. That encouragement led Nancy to obtain her real estate license in July of 2018.
Jarrell started her career with Loretta Realty which is a small firm in Mint Hill. Working with them from July 2018 until December 2019, she saw an opportunity and moved over in January 2020 to the DW Realty Team in Matthews.
Reflecting, Jarrell notes, “I have been an individual agent my entire career so far…no teams.”
Nancy’s independence has served her well. She was nominated as MLS Rookie of the Year in 2019 and that same year received the Top Producer Award with Loretta Realty. Within DW Realty, Nancy has earned Top Producer for the Month in July 2020 and December 2020, Million Dollar Producer Award in September 2020 (having over one million in sales in one month), and Gold Level Transaction Volume for 2020. Her career volume over the last three years is approximately $18,746,049. Last year’s volume was approximately $7,498,250.
Nancy attributes her perseverance as the key to her success. She notes, “The week before I started real estate classes, my world turned upside down when something devastating happened in my marriage, which led to a separation and then eventually divorce. Starting real estate gave me something positive to focus on… something to look forward to each day.”
Jarrell adds, “As I started my career, I was living with family members and had nothing to my name other than my clothes and my vehicle. I left everything else behind. It was even more critical for me to succeed in real estate because everything was literally riding on it. However, I did not doubt that it would take off because I know I am in charge of my destiny—what you put in is what you get out. And I am not afraid to push up my sleeves and get to work! Since that difficult time in my life, I have bought a house and completely furnished it…all thanks to real estate! Becoming a REALTOR® has been a lifesaver for me.”
Nancy is incredibly passionate about using her grit and determination to help others. “The one thing I am passionate about at all times is PEOPLE,” she emphasizes. “I love people—any and all types! People fuel my fire for life, and I love getting to know all of my clients as we go on their real estate journey…be it selling or buying.”
A recent compliment from one of her clients hit home for Jarrell: “One of my clients recently gave me a compliment that made my heart smile. She said, ‘I told my husband he would love you…you just make people feel so comfortable. I feel like I have known you for years even though it has only been a couple of months.'”
Jarrell notes that her love of helping others led her to choose teaching as her first profession. “Being able to help people with one of the biggest things in their life is so rewarding to me,” she explains. “When I start working with new clients, I feel like I am on a top-secret mission, and the fate of the world rests in my hands! I don’t want to stop until we have found the perfect home or buyer!”
Talented and witty, Jarrell uses her background in theatre to delve into many diverse roles to fulfill her current sales goal of closing 50 transactions per year.
In her spare time, Nancy loves to spend time with her dachshund, Noodles, and help any organizations that support fur babies! As well, she loves keeping up with clients who have become friends. With COVID restrictions lifting, Jarrell also looks forward to picking back up her adult tap-dancing classes.
