Meet Nancy Hyske!

  • Number of Years in Real Estate: 38 years
  • Number of Years with Schaffer: From the beginning- started in the business with my father, Ben Schaffer, back in 1979. Left for a brief period of time, but came back full-time in 1985. Then started Schaffer & Co with Margo in 2003.
  • What do you enjoy about being a REALTOR®: Helping clients find a home that fits their needs is very rewarding and satisfying to me. It is an honor to have repeat business- I have clients who purchased their first homes with me and years later are referring their children to me as well.
  • What do you like about working at Schaffer: All of the agents in our company are fun to be around and we have a great time together! Now that my sister and, recently my daughter, have joined the team, I am excited to see the Schaffer Legacy carry on.
  • What do you love about Lodi: I love that Lodi is family oriented with the Mokelumne River & other activities. We are also centrally located with Lake Tahoe & San Francisco no more than a few hours away.  What started as a small farming community has grown into a great wine region!
  • Best piece of advice you’ve ever received: My dad always said, “Serve the client to the best of your ability and everything else will fall into place.”
  • Favorite quote: “You have to remember lies, but you don’t have to remember the truth.”
