Nanette Alcaro, REALTOR®
In 2010, Nanette moved to Charlottesville, charmed by its beauty and the gracious hospitality of its people, and has since lived here with her husband and daughter.
Before that, Nanette had lived in some of the most interesting cities in the United States, namely New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Las Vegas. The process of moving residences over the years has given her personal experiences in renting, buying, renovating and selling properties.
Prior to her life as a stay-home wife, mother and homemaker, Nanette had a 20-year career in the hotel and travel business. She worked as Director of Sales and Marketing in some of the most prestigious luxury hotels in the country, such as The Peninsula NY, Hotel Plaza Athenee NY, and Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles. Working for these hotels required Nanette to travel extensively, both within the country and overseas. Her hotel and travel career enabled her to build an extensive network of friends and colleagues here and abroad. It also trained her to develop a strong skill set in sales and marketing, particularly in the art of presentation, persuasion, and negotiation.
Nanette's interest in real estate comes naturally to her, because of her basic personality as an extrovert. She loves meeting people, engaging with them, and she thrives on building lasting relationships. But more than that is her excitement in bringing her solid sales and marketing skill set to the business. This excitement is further enhanced by Nanett'es own personal experience in supervising ten major home and landscape renovations, from which she learned a great deal of practical and technical aspects of putting together a home and envisioning possibilities. She believes all these are a real asset and will help her help others with their real estate needs.
For fun, Nanette is passionate about cooking. She offers cooking classes occasionally, specializing in Asian cuisine. She also loves gardening and photography, and has spent a great deal of time designing gardens and planting trees and flowers in a farm she very recently lived in. Nanette spends a lot of time with her family and together, they enjoy traveling, exploring and simply discussing issues of the day. They also laugh a lot together!
