About Nancy

I am a top luxury real estate broker in Phoenix/Paradise Valley/Scottsdale Arizona as well as San Miguel. Prior to that I was active in politics as well as stage and screen. I have been coming to San Miguel for 20 years and find it my nirvana.

Nancy purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Nancy chose San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel captured my heart many years ago and each time return I am re-enchanted by this magical refuge and the fascinating folks who live here.

What makes this apartment unique

I study with the finest artists and enjoy the culture, climate and fine dining in this sophisticated mountain retreat.

Mixed Review

  • 2 of 5

Overall, the apartment was lovely and very comfortable. It was not as close to the downtown areas as we thought it would be. We could walk, but it was farther than we planned for. It was very noisy and we had a difficult time sleeping - crowing roosters and barking dogs were certainly not what we had in mind for a relaxing visit.

Beautiful Studio Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Casita Nancy was the perfect place to stay for my quick getaway to San Miguel. The apartment is impeccably decorated, bright and airy. The location was great as it’s in a quiet neighborhood (besides one rooster), and it's a quick 10 minute walk to the Jardin and even closer to restaurants and shops off Nemesio Diez and Zacateros. I so enjoyed my time there. Thanks Marc & Nancy!

Excellent location, wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property, we liked the location, close enough to walk to the center. The staff were helpful and quick to assist us with whatever we needed. The place was nicely furnished, we enjoyed using the kitchen, it worked great for our breakfasts and lunches. When we arrived there was a delicious snack with wine for us to enjoy. The shower was great, lots of hot water. The bed was comfy. I would recommend bringing ear plugs as there are roosters around. The room did not have black out shades so if you enjoy a dark room for sleeping bring along eye patches as well.

Nice clean accommodations located in a quiet neighborhood apart from the roosters.

We enjoyed coffee and cinnamon buns at Cafe Monet a short walk down the hill and to the left. The park was lovely for a stroll. Be sure to check out the Tuesday market, you will need to take a cab.

Unforgettable experience!

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege to stay four months in this amazing apartment. It is close to downtown and it is easy to get to the main attractions by walking. Both Nancy and Mark were very helpful with suggestions on restaurants and activities. I have to mention, that if I reported an issue, it was resolved rapidly and efficiently.

I also found the staff to be of service if I had any questions. I was very appreciative of Augustina who cleaned meticulously the apartment. Noe, the handyman, had been learning English so it made it easier to communicate since I barely speak Spanish. However, I must mention that all of them are very nice people and you will find out that most people living in San Miguel de Allende (SMA) have a very respectful and jovial personality.

What surprised me the most in living in this beautiful town is that you will sometime hear roosters, music, fireworks, bells of any kinds but this is part of the typical Mexican experience. It is part of the culture and for most people living in SMA, it will be the common experience. The good news, after, a while you do not notice it as much.

I am very grateful for how I was welcomed by Marc and Nancy. They are part of the beautiful memories that I will carry with me for a long time. It is an inspiring and gorgeous place to live in. I loved the light, ceiling height and the view out of the bedroom windows. I was here to reconnect with myself but I found so much more than I expected. I would certainly repeat this experience and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to rent this apartment.

Happy memories

  • 5 of 5

Nancy, thank you for our stay at your studio. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Coming from our previous rental in San Miguel by the Rosewood, it was a pleasure to have a lush, comfortable mattress, luxury linens, and a quality heater. My husband took a picture of me luxuriating on the bed and had it painted into a portrait. It is quite lovely if I say so myself. Happy memories! Your studio is beautifully decorated and charming, and your degree in designs shows. The view of the courtyard and the soothing fountain from the bedroom windows was lovely. Playing with your dogs was an added bonus. Your gardener/handiman takes good care of them, and your housekeeper was pleasant and helpful.

You are a dynamo realtor. We do not think anyone has your work ethic. You showed us lots, and we are delighted with the home we have in San Miguel. Thank you so much again. We look forward to seeing you and your husband again.
