Senior Vice President – Sales
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
A top-producing broker known as much for her expertise as her congeniality, Nancy Tassone has earned a stellar reputation as one of the city’s leading Realtors. She claims over $500 million in closed sales throughout her 15-year career, and is a trusted leader in the luxury market.
Consecutively recognized as a top producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors every year since 2005, her recent accomplishments include pre-selling 80 percent of the homes at No. 9 Walton, a lavish Gold Coast condominium building that will house the city’s most expensive residences. Her philosophy is simple: “I treat people the way I’d want to be treated: with respect, honesty, and above all else, compassion.”
Tassone was raised in the North Shore, and has resided in Chicago for nearly 20 years. Her original plan did not include becoming a real estate agent, but when the opportunity arose, she jumped on it. “I was working at a consulting firm when my husband and I purchased our first home, and I was so fascinated by the process that I helped a friend and her company rent apartments on a part-time basis,” she remembers. “The experience was so fantastic that I got my license, and the rest is history!”
Tassone believes in the importance of a strong work ethic and constant communication. That proves especially critical for the inventory challenges her clients sometimes face. “One of the biggest questions people have is ‘where am I going to live?’ because Chicago is currently such a competitive market,” she explains. “They are often left facing temporary housing as their main option, so they look to me to help solve that issue – I am more than happy to do so.” Regardless of the task ahead of her, Tassone approaches her work the same way she approaches life. “I treat my clients’ financial interests as if they were my own, and I show them the consideration I want others to show me.”
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Tassone resides in West Lakeview, and finds inspiration in both the city’s energy and her family. “My children are my greatest accomplishment,” she says, “and they inspire me to be better.” She is a self- motivated person and has a positive outlook. “Every day brings new challenges and opportunities, but I believe I can create my own success through hard work and a never-give-up attitude!”
