SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nina Hatvany, the top individual residential real estate agent in San Francisco, has joined the Pacific Union International family.


Hatvany, who was TRI Coldwell Banker's #1 top producing individual agent for over 20 years, posted over $180 million in residential real estate sales in 2012. She represents both buyers and sellers of luxury homes, condominiums and apartment buildings.

"Pacific Union is honored to have Nina join our firm," said Patrick Barber, President - San Francisco Region. "Nina is an exceptional individual and a stellar real estate professional. Her commitment to her clients' best interests, her unparalleled market knowledge, and her high standards of excellence and integrity match perfectly with Pacific Union's standards of elite performance."

"The international exposure and cachet of Pacific Union's association with Christie's International Real Estate will provide a fabulous showcase for my high-end listings," said Hatvany. "With that in hand, and now that my career is established, I am eager to move into a period of growth and high energy along with my daughter and son, Natalie and Paul. Pacific Union gives us that platform in a warm and supportive environment."

Hatvany has a uniquely deep perspective on the world of real estate, having also spent over 30 years in real estate development. She helmed several condominium and townhouse development projects in Palo Alto, then turned her talents to remodeling and earned a contractor's license. She has refurbished several Bay Area apartment buildings and has restored and rehabilitated numerous homes in San Francisco herself.

Prior to her real estate ventures, 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 a M.A. and Ph.D. from Stanford in psychology and is widely recognized as one of the best-trained negotiators in the business.

Hatvany, who is originally from London, and her husband have lived in San Francisco for thirty years, where they raised three children.
