Nancy Chu
Keller Williams NJ Metro Group
About Nancy

Nancy is a Partner in ChuBaldwinHomes at Keller Williams NJ Metro Group – Essex County’s #1 brokerage office again in 2018 -- and has been a real estate professional since 2005. A consistent top producer in Northern NJ, she is skillful in a wide range of deal-making - from 1-bedroom condos to luxury homes to investment properties. While based in Essex County, she is intrepid by nature and has developed a regionally-based business by selling in Essex, Bergen, Union, Morris, and Passaic Counties and beyond…in Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, and Somerset, too. “My primary goal is to explore the towns of Northern NJ, and to hone my expertise in all these areas. I think that real estate, like the rest of the world, is becoming more global, and so I feel that I must expand my approach both my world-view and my areas of business. My job is to listen closely to my client’s need, and because I have a wide knowledge base of the area, I have a better chance of helping them find the neighborhood they want to be in faster. There is nothing more satisfying than putting a family in the perfect home.” Nancy, who is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, cultivated a love for real estate when she helped her parents find their perfect home in Tennessee at age 16, and has not been able to stop following the real estate market since, owning a number of co-ops and condos in New York City, seven homes in Essex County as a serial renovator, leading to her present home in Livingston, and recently building a vacation getaway in upstate New York. Prior to real estate, Nancy spent 7 years in the Department of Ophthalmology at New York University School of Medicine. In addition, as a stage director, her work has been seen at The Public Theatre, Long Wharf Theatre, The Lucille Lortel Foundation, Columbia University, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Second Stage Theatre, and The Culture Project, to name a few. She is a member of several prestigious institutions, such as The Womens Project Productions and the Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab. She continues to direct occasionally with what little spare time she has left, as well as hanging out with her lovely husband, Raf Ricci, also a Realtor, and fabulous 14-year-old son, Declan. Nancy knows that her own fascination with real estate and her strong professional background translates perfectly into helping her clients find their dream homes.

During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area.
