Nancy Dorenkott

Start date with RE/MAX Island Properties: 2008

Personal Profile: In the late 1990's, my husband and I sailed to St. Maarten and made it our home. I was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, but had always travelled extensively and studied in Europe as well. Although my business career had focused on sales, marketing and customer service, it was not until I reached St. Maarten that I had the opportunity to venture into the world of real estate. As the wife of a builder, I was not a stranger to real estate and the transition was a natural. At RE/MAX, working with the agents and making sure that they have the support they need for every client is tremendously rewarding.
