A native of Germany, Nina and her Canadian husband spent almost two decades living in Europe, China, and United States before relocating to Ottawa in 2006 with their three young children. While living abroad, Nina earned her master’s degree in Chinese Studies and served as a business consultant advising clients entering the Chinese marketplace.
With a personal appreciation for how difficult it can be to find the right neighborhood and home, Nina engages her clients with patience, dedication, and honesty. Whether a family is new to the city or moving across town, Nina’s approach is to gain a deep personal appreciation for each client’s unique needs, guiding them to the home that is just right for them. Since becoming an agent in 2009, Nina has built a large and loyal base of clients who appreciate her warmth, enthusiasm, and integrity.
During a stressful move, Nina’s honest and straightforward approach was so appreciated. She quickly determined the best options for me and in a short period of time helped me make a great purchase on a beautiful home that will be an excellent investment over the years. She also connected me to other service providers, which is key when you are moving from a different province. I felt comfortable asking her advice on a range of real estate issues – including the sale of my previous home – and know that I have a realtor I can trust.
Nina Krakowsky has been a remarkable real estate agent. She made finding a house for me and my family a surprisingly easy and enjoyable experience. I could have reached her at any time and also Nina would set up meeting times exactly at the times which suited me best. I found her to be a very organized and overall a kind person. If you are in need of information on houses in Ottawa you can definitely count on Nina to provide you with the best information. All in all, Nina has been a great person to meet and to work with.
We have had the pleasure of working with Nina on two occasions in the past, and both times she exceeded our expectations. She has a great understanding of the local real estate market, but is also very knowledgeable of the local area and proved very helpful in providing us information on schools, community activities, attractions, and reputable contractors. We love the house that Nina helped us find and consider the area that she showed us a hidden gem and a perfect fit for our lifestyle. Having moved from British Columbia and having no prior knowledge of the Ottawa area, we consider ourselves very lucky that Nina was recommended to us.
I worked with Nina as my agent from Tracy Arnett purchasing my first home. Nina was excellent, friendly, and super supportive throughout my search! She was really patient with me, and always gave me an honest opinion which was highly appreciated. She understood exactly what it was I was looking for. I would highly recommend and definitely would love to have her as my agent again!
I was so glad we had the good fortune to find Nina as our real estate agent. I was stressed about finding a house that would suit my three little children while keeping us in the neighbourhood we needed. It had been a long time since I had house-hunted and I was at a loss at how to describe what I thought I wanted. Nina seemed to know instinctively what would work for my family. She saved me time by winnowing out houses that didn't match our needs. She showed me houses that I would never have been able to find on my own, including the one I eventually bought. She has a warm, unflappable manner and a wry wit that made the house-hunting experience both manageable and fun. Her congratulatory telephone call when the seller accepted my offer matched my own level of excitement at finding "my" house. Nina and I worked seamlessly as a team, and that made the house-hunting experience so much less stressful than I had worried it might be. I found my family's dream home!
Nina provided us with high-value insight on a real estate market to which we were essentially brand-new. She helped us find a house and neighbourhood aligned with our tastes and lifestyle, while also meeting specific objectives we had for re-sale potential and investment return. Through her, we accessed a range of attractive properties from which we ultimately made a choice that we are both extremely pleased with. She demonstrated strong industry knowledge and exercised firm and effective negotiating skills on our behalf, and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. Throughout our interactions with Nina, we valued her honesty, transparency, and focus on doing the right thing for us. We unequivocally recommend her to prospective clients looking for a high-performing real-estate professional.
