A seasoned veteran in the mortgage field, Nina brings more than 20 years of experience to her clients. With her vast experience in real estate and mortgages, she has the unique ability to understand the expectations and needs of all parties involved in the mortgage financing process.

Nina is known throughout the community for her ability to quickly identify and match each individual's goals with the appropriate loan products and ensure that her clients' needs and expectations are met. Her extensive knowledge and experience are not all she has to bring to the table. Nina's outgoing personality and determination push her to the forefront of the financing industry. She is proud to be closely connected to the Virginia Peninsula Association of Realtors (VPAR) and works to support their involvement with the community.

Nina began her mortgage career with a bang receiving Rookie of the Year in 1993. She has been a consistent Top Producer throughout the years and in 2009 Nina was honored as #1 in her company for VA loan transactions. She has also been honored as a top producer since 2004.

Over the past 20 years Nina has learned to not only focus on one need a customer may have, but all aspects of the mortgage financing process. Whether her client is a first time home buyer (VHDA, VA, FHA), a private wealth customer or Physician, or simply refinancing an existing mortgage, Nina understands the importance of her customers' needs during this significant decision in their life.

Working to continually be involved in the Real Estate community, Nina has served on the VPAR Risk Management Committee for the past 11 years. She is also currently on the Board of Directors for the Peninsula Home Builders Association. She has received numerous prestigious awards including 2003 VPAR's Affiliate of the Year and the 2008 Peninsula Homebuilders Association's Associate of the Year. Nina graduated from Lenoir Rhyne College with a BS in Medical Technology and obtained her MT Certificate from Duke Medical Center. After years of being a medical technologist and starting a family, Nina was drawn to the flexibility and future potential growth of the Real Estate industry and has never looked back.
