Nancy Chu

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.

Victoria Carter
Weichert, Realtors
About Victoria

I have been a resident of New Jersey since 1994 and a professional in the real estate industry since 1998. I am absolutely thrilled that I have not only succeeded but climbed up the ranks of the real estate industry over the course of my career. In 2017, 2016 and 2015, I was the #1 agent for Weichert, Realtors company-wide. Before I made the career change and became a realtor, I worked as a senior corporate executive in Manhattan at Saks Fifth Avenue. This corporate experience is what I credit with honing my skills in negotiating as well as enhancing my already competitive nature. These are the qualities that give me an edge when I negotiate on your behalf. I am a top realtor in northern New Jersey, and I completely understand the strains – both emotionally and financially – that these life-changing transactions can bring. Moving is undoubtedly one of the most stressful events in a person's life, but you can easily relieve yourself of some of the burden as well as the time involved by working with a true professional in the real estate industry. I am not the type of real estate agent who shows you listings or brings buyers through without any degree of personal connections. Instead, I make it my priority to work directly with you and your family in determining the best type of home that will fit your lifestyle and in such, helping to make your dreams come true. I will discuss with you and develop a list of your needs and search for the perfect property that meets these needs. If you are selling your home, you can count on me to be a trustworthy and wise advocate that will guide you through the selling process so you can leave the past behind in pursuit of your future.

We have been the #1 Keller Williams Team in the entire New York Region for 14 years running (We serve the NJ trainline towns of Millburn/Short Hills, Summit, Maplewood, South Orange, Chatham, Madison, New Providence, Livingston, Westfield and surrounding towns) .

Out of the 252 families we helped buy, sell or rent in 2019, 242 were either referrals from past clients or repeat business. We are very proud of this as we know that the best PR is word of mouth from happy clients.
