Nancy Tomback

Sales Associate, REALTOR®



These are the three guiding values of my accomplished 30-year career as a REALTOR®. I have a reputation for providing unparalleled service to my clients, for my extensive expertise in residential real estate, and most importantly for my honesty, professionalism, and integrity. By taking the time to forge personal relationships with my clients, I listen to their needs and understand their goals, and have earned my clients' continued business and referrals. There is nothing more rewarding than my client's satisfaction and the relationships I have gained throughout my career. As you consider the important decision to purchase or sell a home, you can trust that I will make your experience as stress-free as possible and that I will exceed all of your expectations!

I have spent the past 25 years with Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty, being recognized for the President's Club the past two years, and sales in the top 10% throughout most years with multiple prestigious Lyon's Elite and Lyon's Pride awards. My accreditation's as a Certified Residential Specialist and as a member of the Graduate REALTOR® institute gives me a vast array of knowledge in real estate, contracts, negotiations, technology, and ethics. I have also earned the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource certification. I have been a part of the Relocation Department throughout my career and I am certified as a Cartus Broker Network specialist.

A Valley resident since 1980, my extensive knowledge of the vast Phoenix Metropolitan area includes education, childcare, churches, synagogues, the Jewish community, the business community, golf course communities, active adult communities, senior living, cultural events, dining and entertainment and much more. I reside in the Grayhawk community of North Scottsdale for the past 20 years, where I enjoy hiking, pickleball, Book Clubs, cooking, golf, theater, laughing, loving, and pro and college sports!

A Chicago native, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an MBA with Distinction from the University of Phoenix, with a marketing emphasis. I have over 45 years of sales, marketing, and management experience with well-known organizations including Fairchild Publications (now owned by Disney), 3M Company, and I was the first Director of Marketing for the University of Phoenix.

I am most proud of a lifetime of volunteerism and community involvement, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, serving as a Public Relations Specialist and Wish-Granter for terminally ill children, the Sojourner Center, which provides shelter and emotional support for victims of domestic violence, the Foundation for Publication Education, serving Paradise Valley Unified School District and most recently, I am a volunteer for Send Me On Vacation, a non-profit organization started by a childhood friend, providing breast cancer survivors a much-needed vacation to help rejuvenate their body, mind, and spirit after their breast cancer treatment has ended.
