Greetings From Paradise

Nancy McClary 


Creating Happiness In Paradise  -  One Home At A Time

Since 1973 people have trusted me to handle their real estate needs effectively, honestly and with integrity.

Formerly licensed in New Jersey, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts and now a Florida real estate Associate Broker, Multi-Year Director/Florida Association of REALTORS®, Former President/Local REALTOR® BOARD and MLS Board President; 
Chair/Million Dollar Committee -
Member:                           Professional Development Committee
                                       Grievance Committee;
                                       Chairman Million Dollar Committee

National Designations:       ePro Internet Certified Professional
                                       An Agent At Home With Diversity
                                       Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource

In addition, I work with one of our area's foremost builders - Schaefer Homes, which has just completed a "Green" enviromentally ("Green") friendly model. Having built our home in Connecticut as the General Contractor, from the first pencil sketches on a piece of paper to the final Certificate of Occupancy, I understand the joys and terrors of building a new home and can make the process much easier for you.

I am extremely proud that most of my business comes from referrals of people with whom I have done business - whether buying, selling or building a home; I am ready to meet your every real estate need.  If you know of anyone located out of this area, please ask them to give me a call so I can help them find a REALTOR in their area to guide them through their transaction.

In addition to real estate, I enjoy fishing, needlepoint and cooking; I have 6 wonderful grandchildren and two adorable Shih Tzu's (Cassie/5 and Macie/3). I would love to help you find or build your dream home here in Paradise.

Thank you.

Community Involvement

On Friday the 13th of August, 2004, Hurricane Charley blew through this area leaving a trail of devastation.  Out of that, a group of civic-minded citizens formed TEAM PUNTA GORDA.  I was honored to serve on the Parks and Recreation Committee.  TEAM PUNTA GORDA set a new course for Punta Gorda to improve upon the best of what remained and to grow into a town with great charm, wonderful restaurants, incredible citizens and to set a course for future growth that would protect the beautiful and pristine shoreline of Charlotte Harbor - no high rise buildings here. 

In Connecticut I was a member of the Litchfield County Board of REALTORS, serving for a number of years as the Secretary of the Board of Directors.  I was also appointed to serve on a state-wide committee to seek ways to interface with the local associations of REALTORS and the Connecticut Association of REALTORS.

When we first moved to Punta Gorda, I happily cleaned cages and provided tours of a delightful animal rescue group at the end of our point - PEACE RIVER WILDLIFE CENTER. 

Personal Interests

As a young girl my grandfather used to take me trout fishing in his favorite stream in the mountains of New Hampshire which instilled in me a love of the water and fishing.  Today, I fish from our dock in Punta Gorda Isles (PGI) and catch Snook, Sheepshead, Snapper and yes, even a juvenile Tarpon!!!   Trying to outsmart something you can't see is a real and exciting challenge - like buying or selling a home, condominium or raw land.  Grampa taught me patience and a caring for all living things - great attibutes I try to incorporate in all I do.

In addition, I love to cook - and moving to Florida meant trying a huge assortment of FRESH fruits and vegetables and figuring out how to mix and match to make interesting meals. 

In those quiet moments, another passion is working on needlepoint projects - mostly as gifts for friends.  However, with two precious Shih Tzu's and an even more precious husband of nearly 40 years, free time is at a premium.   So, when there is free time, I grow orchids - YES in our backyard!

And last, but certainly not least, I have 6 wonderful grandchildren and 2 "super" grandchildren - the children of my nephew and his wife - who fill my heart with joy.  I wish the same for you.
