Nancy Ackerman brings a refreshing sophistication and a unique merging of talents to the process of buying or selling properties. She's a warm, charismatic, and highly knowledgeable professional whose insights come from her many successes as a Real Estate Tax Consultant, making her exceptional among high-level residential brokers. She also has a genuine understanding of the emotions, priorities, and circumstances that play into any buying or selling decision.
She enjoyed a thriving 25-year career with KPMG LLP, a professional services company, and one of the Big Four accounting firms, where she provided tax advisory services as a Managing Director to real estate, construction, finance, and hospitality clients. Her longevity with the company is a testament to her devotion, serving clients across the globe while transitioning seamlessly between KPMG's Philadelphia, New York, and Chicago offices over her twenty-five-year tenure, all the while retaining her clients' trust and loyalty, regardless of where she was based. Following her rewarding career with KPMG, she turned her focus to personal goals and pursuits closer to her heart. She continued to offer advisory services while building and managing her own real estate portfolio, gaining a wealth of exposure to buying, selling, investing, renovating, and managing properties. She's highly effective at connecting with contractors and designers, as well as the legal, financial, and municipal vendors who play into every real estate transaction.
Real estate sales is a natural next step for her, one that suits her active lifestyle and satisfies her passion for helping people navigate the complexities of an evolving market. It's the perfect merging of her devotion to helping clients meet their financial goals while realizing their lifestyle dreams. Her natural flair for style and beauty complements her expansive knowledge in property valuation. She can help guide your decision fiscally, while helping you see the potential of any property, making her an asset in preparing your home to sell, or helping you visualize your life in the properties she shows you. She's grounded and resourceful, and she thrives under the pressure of high-stakes challenges while bringing a joy and pleasure to the process of buying or selling a property, an unwavering spirit of commitment that makes her ideal for Jameson Sotheby International Realty’s high-profile properties.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting/Business from Muhlenberg College, and a Master of Science degree in Taxation from Fordham University. Nancy elegantly balances a full-time commitment to exceptional client service with her commitment to family. She's a devoted wife to Mark and a loving mother to her son Christopher, a passionate tennis player, who is attending the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. During her free time, she enjoys playing golf and paddle tennis for the Midtown Athletic Club’s paddle team. Nancy lives each day to the fullest, in gratitude for her wonderful family and in memory of her first-born daughter, Rachel. Having lived ten years in the West Loop and now as a resident of Lincoln Park, Nancy moves with the pulse of the Chicago community in her work and life.
