In this installment, we chat with Mallory Claytor, an agent with Nest Realty in Staunton, Virginia.
Nest Realty: Tell us a bit about yourself! What brought you to Staunton?
Mallory Claytor: I am a native of the Augusta County area as I have grown up and lived here my entire life. I love walking outside and seeing the mountains and drinking my coffee.
NR: How did you get into real estate?
MC: I got into real estate because of my mom, Keri Martin. Growing up, I was very interested in the real estate business and asked my mom many questions. I went with her to showings and met new people along the way. As I got older, I thought real estate would be something I could do alongside my mom.
NR: What was your previous career? How has that prepared you for real estate?
MC: Aside from being a Realtor, I am also a teacher for Augusta County Schools. I feel that my teaching career has helped me grow into the person I am today and has helped me with real estate as well. I have good time management skills, communication skills, and the joy to help people with whatever they may need.

MC: I enjoy the modern day enhancements that Nest offers. The technology is user friendly and offers great resources to expand and grow your business.
