With over 32 years of experience in real estate, Nina Hatvany has represented clients in well over $4 billion dollars in sales transactions. Her in-depth knowledge of all aspects of San Francisco real estate is truly unmatched.

In 2016, Nina formed Team Hatvany 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; both buyers and sellers of 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 incredible work ethic is complemented by her gracious, even-keeled demeanor and her commitment to exceed expectations in every transaction. Nina’s interest in real estate sales stems from her 30 years in development, building townhouses in Palo Alto, refurbishing and operating apartment buildings and renovating 20+ homes in San Francisco. Along the way, she acquired a contractor’s license. Previously, Nina was a Professor at the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University. She holds an M.A. and Ph.D. from Stanford in Psychology with a Business concentration, and is widely recognized as one of the best-trained negotiators in the business.

She is active in the community and a board member of the San Francisco Housing Accelerator Fund, an organization dedicated to putting together innovative financing for low- and moderate-income housing projects. She is also an Honorary Board member of Larkin Street Youth Services, an organization that serves homeless youth. Nina is consistently sought out by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle, among others, for her insight on today's market.
