Nancy Pedicord moved from Dayton, Ohio, to Ft. Lauderdale, with her husband, Larry, and two infant daughters, Kimberly and Cindy where they would begin their new lives with Pine Crest School in sunny Florida. Ten years later, their son, Royce, was born. They now are the proud grandparents of five beautiful grandchildren; two grandsons, and three granddaughters.
Nancy began her real estate career in 1981, when she decided to leave her position at Pine Crest School, where her husband was employed as an administrator for 40 years. Gordon Latz and Associates, later known as Prudential Florida Properties was her home base for 23 years, serving for three years as the General Manager. While there, she earned the Legends Award, by achieving over $250,000 in gross commissions for 10 or more years. She also served several terms on the Executive Board of Directors for the Women's Council of Realtors of the Ft Lauderdale Area Board of Realtors. The Ft. Lauderdale Board of Realtors also recognized Nancy's achievements in the community and in her real estate practice by honoring her with membership in the Honor Society. She also received the highest grade in her class of over 200, for the designation of Graduate of the Realtors Institute. Cindy also received recognition from FAR as being the top producing Prudential agent in the state of Florida.
A first in television history, CNBC contacted Nancy to produced a three minute commercial, which was run five times a day on national TV for a three week period. This was the only instance of a network marketing a listed property. A crew from New York flew into town and filmed her listing in Bay Colony, the property of Richard King of King World Productions. This received state wide recognition by FAR as well as national attention by various publications such as New York Times. Bay Colony is a luxury subdivision with private , restricted access. Nancy and Cindy have transacted over 50 % of the sales in this waterfront community.
