About Us

Nest Realty hatched in 2008—and has been reimagining what it means to be a real estate brokerage ever since.

We like to say that we’ve got the soul of a boutique brokerage, the tools and technology of a venture-backed company, and the marketing and design chops of a creative agency.

At our core, the Nest way begins and ends with nurturing people. We take an ethical, professional approach to what we do and how we do it. We genuinely care for our clients and the people and issues that move them. We give honest advice that’s right for them. We build trust by doing what we say we’ll do. And we empower our clients and agents with the tools, technology, and insights they need to make the buying and selling experience easier, better, and actually enjoyable.

We’ve come a long way since we first opened our doors in Charlottesville, Virginia. Hundreds of agents and countless happy clients later, we’re proud of where we started, how we’ve evolved, and where we are now. Most of all, we’re excited to see where we go from here.

Quite simply, there’s no place like Nest.
We all share the same Nest

We welcome all—agents, clients, and community members. We are inclusive and respectful, because open minds lead to big ideas. And it’s just the right thing to do.

Lead with empathy

We work with people, not property. People are unique and so are their goals and dreams. It’s vital that we understand the goals of our clients...and work with them to help them achieve their vision for what success looks like.

Nest is a team sport

At Nest, we always work together for the greater good of our clients and our brand. We share the successes when we win and the heartbreak when we don’t. We support our fellow Nesters in any way that we can. We have personal accountability. And we do it all with humility.

Act like a startup

We must stay nimble and constantly look for ways to improve our services and enhance our brand. The world—and our industry—are continuously evolving and we must keep our eye on the future. Just because something worked in the past doesn’t mean it’s the best solution for tomorrow.

Design matters

Design builds trust. And beautiful, consistent design across all of our channels enhances the Nest brand for everyone. How we design print, digital, and experiences directly impacts our brand, so every Nester is responsible for upholding the high standards of design.

Build exceptional experiences

It’s a cliche, but the purchase or sale of a home is one of the largest decisions one makes. It’s our responsibility to make our clients’ journeys exceptional and memorable. We must go above and beyond to educate them, respond to their needs, and provide them with the highest quality service.
