Nancy Benvenuto has been a licensed real estate professional since 1990, and spent her first twelve years in the business in commercial and corporate real estate, securing sites and developing over 1,000 restaurants for some of America’s most loved brands including Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Baskin Robbins, Togo’s and Dunkin’ Donuts.
After college and graduate school in the Pacific Northwest, Nancy began her early career in consumer advertising and marketing, which led her to Pepsico in 1991, and ultimately from business development, to real estate development in the restaurant division with Taco Bell.
Nancy grew up in the Chicago area, and after graduate school, found her way California, moving her way up the state from LA to the Peninsula and finally choosing to make her home in Alamo, Christmas of 1991.
In 2003, Nancy shifted her real estate business home to focus on working with buyers and sellers in the San Ramon Valley. Her wealth of knowledge and experience in the fields of marketing, sales and negotiation will serve her clients well in any of their real estate transactions.
Nancy will celebrate five years in active, full time residential real estate this summer and is proud to have closed dozens of escrows and sold millions of dollars worth of real estate. When the market started to shift in the Spring of 2007, Nancy realized she had to change her business strategy at which time she made a move to J. Rockcliff Realtors and put a small team of licensed support people together to help her with transaction coordinating, website marketing efforts and lending support.
This has enabled Nancy’s business to thrive when many real estate agents were forced to leave the industry. 2008 was a good year and she expects 2009 to be even better, simply because Nancy chooses her client’s carefully and her client’s choose her because of her level of energy, sophistication and tenacious negotiating skills.
Nancy looks forward to the opportunity to earn your business and help you achieve your real estate dreams. This is a market of opportunities, let Nancy help you leverage today’s changing real estate market. She loves what she does – and it shows!
