Nancy Pedicord moved from Dayton, Ohio to Ft. Lauderdale in 1957 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 years or more. She also served several terms on the executive board of directors for the Womens Council of Realtors of the Ft. Lauderdale Area Board of Realtors. The Ft. Lauderdale Board also recognized Nancy's achievements by awarding her with membership in the Honor Society.
A first in television history, CNBC contacted Nancy and produced a 3 minute commercial, ran it five times a day 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 the property. This received state wide recognition by FAR as well as national attention by various publications such as New York Times.
In 2004, Nancy made the difficult decision to leave Prudential, along with her daughter and partner, Cindy, to join the Balistreri Family.
Nancy has also been a very active volunteer in serving the charities of our community. She has served on the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society and Henderson Mental Health Clinic. She is the founding President of Cystic Fibrosis Gold Coast Guild in 1989, where she is still serving as a current board member. Nancy is past President of Henderson Mental Health Auxiliary having served three terms, and is past President of The 1000+ Club of ACS. For her achievements in serving the community as a dedicated volunteer, Nancy was honored by 1000+ Club of the American Cancer Society as a "Woman of the Year" in 1991, the most highly coveted honor in Broward County. And again, she was honored in 2004, by The Symphony of the Americas, as a "Woman of Style and Substance".
Nancy is a broker associate and a graduate of the Realtors Institute, GRI., and she loves her work!
