Having a Realtor who is working “for you” & is familiar with and has access to the current inventory that’s on the market, mortgage lender requirements, contract knowledge and inspections is key! The internet is a good tool & starting point for consumers to explore the market. Yet we all know that not all of the information online is accurate or up-to-date.
She enjoys taking the time to go over the buying and selling process with her clients, since this is often the largest and most important investment decision they’ll ever make.
I look forward to working “for you” when buying or selling real estate.

Needing a change, she decided to take sales to a different level and sell houses. This was another opportunity to work with people, which she enjoys, to find them the perfect home. Gwen has also recently become a Provisional Appraiser, which is intertwined with Real Estate.
She is proud to represent The Washington Agency as an agent.
In that difficult housing environment, she sold her first home using creativity to make the deal work for both parties. Since her first sale, Nancy has been unstoppable. Today, 85 to 90 percent of her loyal clients are either repeat or referral business.
Prior to embarking on a successful real estate career, Nancy’s professional background was diverse and in her own words “a bit quirky.” Her resume includes parts manager for her family’s lawnmower/snow blower business, waitress in Rockefeller Center NYC, tenant organizer, receptionist in a major New York City law firm, and supervisor in charge of rehabbing more than 60 apartments in the South Bronx. With each and every position, Nancy viewed the job as an opportunity to learn, hone her people skills, and develop her customer service talents. This approach has paid-off, giving her the work ethic, ingenuity and interpersonal skills to be a successful real estate agent.
In addition to her GRI, Nancy holds a bachelor’s degree in English. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa with cum laude honors from the City University of New York. Nancy also brings her energy and commitment to the local community. Her leadership abilities have been recognized by her peers in the Real Estate industry: she has been chosen Chairperson of the Grievance Committee of Litchfield County Board of Realtors as well as having been a candidate for the prestigious Realtor of the Year Award. She volunteers in her town for the Inland Wetlands and Watercourse Commission and was a founding member of Friends of Torrington Education. She volunteers for Friendly Hands Food Bank, a non-profit organization that provides services to the working poor (individuals who are low income but do not qualify for government assistance). She volunteers in a mentoring program for a young at-risk girls in the foster care system. She is also a volunteer for the Birth to Graduation program, helping young parents raise successful children. On the personal side, Nancy enjoys watercolor painting, graphite drawing, gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, hiking, cooking and baking. She is one of six children and today is proud of her son and daughter as well as her many nieces and nephews. Nancy credits her organizational skills to her mother Marge Schroeder and her people proficiencies to her father Walt (Tweet) Schroeder. She concludes that both of her parents ingrained in her the importance of honesty and treating people fairly.
Before joining the Washington Agency, she was a service dog trainer with the Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities, as well as a camp counselor for their summer education program. She has a love for music that she always takes with her and always tries to be the one to put a smile on someone’s face. Rachelle hopes to use her experience and knowledge in the sales and service industry to help her clients with their real estate needs.
Prior to joining our team, she held a myriad of managerial positions through which she was able to cultivate the valuable skills of multitasking and diplomatic conflict resolution in stressful situations. She is thoughtful when working with sellers of real estate as to suggestions to show the property in the best light to maximize its sales potential. Working with buyers, she is committed to understanding her client’s wish list, needs, and other various factors in order to find the right property.
She is a fan of animals regardless of size or type, and can be found in her free time, landscaping, enjoying the beauty of Litchfield county, or attending cultural events related to anything from the belle epoch.
