Nina HatvanyLuxury Property Specialist
With over 28 years of experience in real estate, Nina Hatvany has represented clients in well over $2 billion dollars in sales transactions. Her in-depth knowledge of all aspects of San Francisco real estate is truly unmatched. From 2008 to 2015, Nina has been ranked the top individual agent in the City of San Francisco, and has been recognized in the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 35 sales agents by volume nationwide across all companies for the years 2009-2016, reaching as high as #9 in that time span.
Nina formed the Hatvany Team at Compass with her three adult children, two of whom are attorneys and one a former New York City real estate agent. Together they represent all property types and price-points in San Francisco. In 2017, Nina was once again ranked the top individual agent in the City of San Francisco, and the Hatvany Team was ranked the top team in San Francisco for 2017!
Nina represents both buyers and sellers of luxury houses, condominiums, and apartment buildings. Nina is single-minded in her pursuit of her clients’ desires, whether to sell at the best possible price or to buy the perfect home; she makes it her business to get her clients what they want.
Her interest in real estate sales stems from her 30 years in real estate development, building townhouses in Palo Alto, refurbishing and operating several Bay Area apartment buildings and, most particularly, restoring and rehabilitating many homes in San Francisco itself. Along the way she acquired a contractor’s license.
Prior to real estate, Nina was a Professor at the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University and later the Graduate School of Business at Berkeley, California. She holds an M.A. and Ph.D. from Stanford in Psychology with concentration in the Business School, and is widely recognized as one of the best-trained negotiators in the business.
Nina has resided in San Francisco for thirty-five years with her husband, and her three children had a wonderful experience being raised in the City. Nina is active in the community and is a former member of the Board of Larkin Street Youth Services as well as of International Women’s Forum and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area. She is consistently sought out by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle, among others, for her insight on today's market.
