As retirees, my husband and I have set our minds to settle in Nova Scotia coming from Toronto.  We couldn’t be happier when our son recommended Nancy to us as he was also Nancy’s client as a first time buyer.  The moment we met Nancy,  we felt so much at ease right away as she was completely accommodating to our so many inquiries and enthusiasm to buy a house in Halifax.  However, our stay in Halifax were only short-lived due to obligations back in Toronto and we could only stay for a week to do our house-search.  We had to continue our house-search through virtual walk-throughs by Nancy but she did not disappoint us.  We felt like we were there with her physically because of how much she went into detail walking us through houses which we asked her to check.  Her patience, her technical knowledge and professionalism never wavered.  Even at odd times, Nancy always had answers to our questions.  I felt that she thoroughly understood our anxiety and at times panic-stricken moments but she always reminded us not to make rush decisions.  She repeatedly advised us to choose our house that will make us happy all throughout our retirement years.  In just under 3 weeks, we finally found our dream home and all thanks to our vibrant and super-energetic Representative.

We will never hesitate to recommend Nancy to our friends who will look to buying or selling their houses in the future. We are so grateful and proud that we were taken cared of by our Representative and friend.

When a neighbour recommended Nancy, we didn’t hesitate, but gave her a try and she sold our place in three days, after our place being on the market with another agent for one year.
She is a go getter indeed, thank you so much for your service

Nancy Skinner made buying a

Nancy Skinner made buying a house so much easier than I thought it would be. She kept me informed at every step, with everything I needed to know and complete. I loved her detailed task lists!!

In every house we looked at, Nancy picked up on small details which made selecting the right house, a comfortable decision.

As luck would have it; I met Nancy Skinner!

I was driving through one of my favorite parts of the city and spotted my dreamhouse! And it was for sale! As luck would have it; I met Nancy Skinner! Nancy provided a complete game plan to ensure this little “jewel” ended up in my hands.

She laid out a set of documents that explained each step of the purchase process. This included not only my responsibilities, but those of my lender, and lawyer as well. Details like due dates, additional fees, who pays what when etc. were all there. Also contact options for services such as home and water main inspection.

Nancy made herself available at a moments notice! No question was irrelevant or went unanswered. These are the details that really matter to the buyer during this confusing, yet exciting process. I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from Nancy. Together we made this happen!

If you are considering buying or selling a property; I highly recommend you call Nancy. (902-478-4474)

She’s the real deal….…not to mention a super nice person!


I would have no reservations about recommending Nancy!

I have had property for sale in Cape Breton since 2006, and over the years have listed it with different agents without success. I had not asked Nancy, as she was in the City, 3-4 hours away from my property. When I did ask Nancy,in late 2019, she happily took it on and listed 3 of the 4 properties I had. The properties where well presented on line, and they sold within months. Indirectly, the property I had not listed sold as well. I would have no reservations about recommending Nancy.


We highly recommend Nancy to anyone purchasing or selling.

Nancy has been our realtor on three different Real Estate transactions; two sales and one purchase. We have been pleased with her professionalism, integrity and her endless energy. We were pleased with her attention to detail; use of professional photographer, staging, and advertising to make the best possible presentation. She has provided good advise both in purchase and sale. We highly recommend Nancy to anyone purchasing or selling.

Thank you very much for all your assistance and support during our transition from home-owners to apartment dwellers. We appreciate your professionalism, kindness and friendship.

Kristina & Robert

Our family were so very fortunate to have had Nancy Skinner as our Real Estate agent when we decided to transfer from Ontario to Nova Scotia. She helped guide us through every step of the way from connecting us with a reliable ReMax agent within our own province for the purpose of selling our house to familiarizing ourselves here that we could find the right location and perfect home for our family.

We truly can’t say enough about how much we loved working with Nancy. She is professional and yet so very personable and truly treats every client like they are her number one priority. She was always available to answer our questions or concerns and her extensive knowledge, experience and positive guidance helped us to find the perfect home for our family. We will be forever grateful to Nancy and will have the highest recommendations of her services and expertise for anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Donna & Rod

For the past several years, my husband and I had been thinking about buying a home of our own.Unfortunately, we hadn’t gone past the thinking stage. Fortunately for us, we had the pleasure of meeting Nancy Skinner.

From day one, Nancy made us feel comfortable with the entire home-buying process.Her guidance with everything from financing to legal matters, proved to be invaluable. She had proven herself to very knowledgeable and resourceful in all matters involved in purchasing a home.

Nancy would often go out of her way to help us, and often pointed out the pros and cons of the properties we were viewing. Although, we have found her to be very professional, she is also someone who will go that extra mile to provide that personal touch, which is greatly welcomed during the stressful home-buying process.

We highly recommend Ms. Skinner to other potential buyers, and will not hesitate to use her services in the future.

I am writing this letter of reference on behalf of Ms. Nancy Skinner due to exemplary service she provided to my spouse and me with the purchase of our first home. Her patience and her ability to match all of our needs, while still keeping us within the boundaries of our budget, enabled us to find exactly what we were looking for.

We had recently relocated to the province and were trying to balance a new occupation, university registration and purchasing of a new home. Ms. Skinner was instrumental in making this transition run smoothly.

We found Ms. Skinner not only to be very professional, but also made additional efforts to ensure that we were properly guided with our financing and legal matters. After the sale of our home was finalized, we continued to benefit from her resourcefulness when we were experiencing the stress of undertaking extensive renovations.

I highly recommend Ms. Skinner to other potential home buyers and will certainly acquire her services in the future for any other real estate issues we may have.

To Whom This May Concern,

Last spring, my husband and I had the pleasure of having Nancy Skinner act as our agent during the purchase of our new home. After a couple of months of house hunting, we decided to purchase a new construction on Green Village Lane in Dartmouth.

At the time of purchase, building had not yet started. This enabled us to get in on the “ground level” and make changes to our home so that it would suit us. We had lived in the same home for 17 years and had no experience with new construction, only lots of concern and dreams. Nancy was able to expertly and professionally guide us through all these decisions. She provided excellent advice as needed and was always available to us.The availability was key to ensuring that our home buying experience was as stress free as possible. Nancy repeatedly proved herself to be reliable, knowledgeable and very competent in her dealings with other professionals.

My husband and I are very pleased with our new home, however, should we ever decide to purchase another home, there is no doubt  that we would engage Nancy as our agent.

Nicole & John Keirstead

My husband and I have been clients of Nancy Skinner’s since January 2002.  From the very beginning Nancy displayed an incredible knowledge of the real estate market around the metro area in both residential and commercial realms.

As anyone who has built a new home will tell you, there are definitely ups and downs, along with many surprises.  Our experience was no different.  In fact, there were many difficult obstacles and delays we encountered during our home building process.  Even under pressure, Nancy always kept her professionalism in dealing with the situation and provided us with sound advice.

My husband and I are now purchasing income properties and Nancy continues to be an invaluable source of information and help to us.  She is a great real estate agent and we will continue to use her services in the future.

Tim & Elizabeth Manuel

We have had the pleasure of working with Nancy Skinner on both the sale of our house and the building of our new home.

My husband and I met Nancy at an open house for a newly constructed home and were impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of new construction.  When we were ready to start the process of selling our home and choosing a location and builder for our new home we immediately thought of her.

Nancy demonstrated her knowledge, professionalism and most importantly her patience throughout the entire process.  She worked with us every step of the way while we searched locations, builders and finalized plans.  We found her knowledge of the industry and attention to detail an enormous resource.

We were both very impressed with the level of service provided by Nancy and would highly recommend her for both selling and when building a new home.


When Terry & I arrived here in Ketch Harbour we used to walk around the community pointing at various homes trying to figure out what each of us liked.  I remember pointing at the Glebe and saying to Terry “I could live there”.  Then Terry looked up and said I could too.
That was in June…and then we met you!
