About The Nancy Johnson Group

After many years of being an individual top producing agent, it was clear to Nancy Johnson it was time to expand. The challenge for her was finding competent people that had her same drive, enthusiasm, loyalty customer service, and drive for satisfaction that Nancy needed to make sure her clients were happy and well taken care of.

After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a major in Marketing and minor in Real Estate, Nancy’s daughter Alex, joined the team as an assistant. She has since evolved to become one the brightest and most adept young realtors in the metroplex. In addition to assisting Nancy with styling homes, she has her own client base that is expanding each year. In January of 2017, Nancy also added realtor Amy Malooley, who has been in the industry since 2006. Amy brings to the group extensive knowledge of the market, devotion to customer service, and an exuberant personality. Amy is delighted to work alongside Nancy, an industry juggernaut she has admired for quite some time.

Nancy also discovered that in order to effectively manage her high volume, while still providing “hands on” customer service, she needed help, so she brought two assistants on board. Megan Marrin joined the group in February of 2015, and came from a background in teaching. She is organized, attentive to detail, and diligent about responding to clients’ needs. Nancy’s other assistant, Samantha Clum joined the group in August 2019 as a marketing specialist. Samantha brings to the team a superb eye for detail, dedicated work ethic and great sense of teamwork. Last, but definitely not least, Judie Heitzman works with Nancy as a home stager and stylist. With Judie’s degree in Interior Design, she and Nancy collaborate on styling and staging in order to display the home in its best light, helping to minimize days on market and maximize sales price.

Together, these six strong and fun-loving women make up The Nancy Johnson Group. Not only is this group consistently #1 in East Dallas, we are also consistently among in the top 5 in Dallas. We have successfully mastered maintaining a personal level of service, while we continue to grow. While much of the group’s business is from prior clients, we also steadily add new business, because of our vast knowledge of the market, contract expertise, negotiating, staging, styling, and most importantly, the clients that become our new friends.

  • About Amy

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Amy’s clients L-O-V-E her. No doubt the Indianapolis native’s friendly, easy-going manner is a big part of her charm. She admits, “I’m really outgoing and love meeting new people. I can have a conversation with anyone.” But her clients’ fondness is just as likely rooted in her knowledge of the market, talent for getting into homes before they’re even listed, and absolute devotion to customer service.

After graduating with a marketing and advertising degree from Bradley University, a small liberal arts university in Peoria, Illinois, Amy found herself entering the job market just as the advertising industry crashed. Plan B meant she would work for Nordstrom until she could find a “real job.” It wasn’t long, though, before she caught the attention of Nordstrom executives and was promoted to manager. She quickly moved up through the ranks with stints in Indianapolis, Houston, and Dallas.

“When you’re a manager at Nordstrom, they let you run your own business,” she says. “It gave me a really good foundation for real estate because Nordstrom has such a commitment to exceptional customer service.” Still, retail wasn’t Amy’s passion, so she earned her real estate license in 2006, and has been devoted to what she considers her true professional calling ever since.

“There’s a lot of joy and satisfaction when you’re helping someone find a new home, a place that’s perfect for them,” Amy admits. “As they get to know me, they come to trust me and value my experience and advice. It’s an honor because, in most cases, they’re making one of their largest purchases ever.”

Bonding in a car while exploring a city has its advantages. Amy says she becomes friends with nearly all of her clients and sees them long after the ink has dried on buyer and seller contracts. “We go for drinks or brunch. I’m very involved with them beyond our real estate connection—which I love.  Many of their children even call me “Aunt Amy.”  

As a self-professed interior design enthusiast with a keen eye, Amy also offers valuable guidance to help sellers distinguish their properties in Dallas’ very competitive real estate market. “Every time I take a listing, I have a full meeting with the seller to talk about staging their home using their current furnishings, or bringing in other items, if needed.” she says. “Over the years, I found that simplicity is key when it comes to attracting buyers.”

Now part of the esteemed Nancy Johnson Group since January 2017, Amy is delighted to work alongside an industry juggernaut she has admired for quite some time. “As the number one agent in Dallas, Nancy is incredible,” Amy adds. “She has so many hip pocket listings and manages to get houses under contract before the general public even knows they’re on the market. Being part of her organization definitely gives me an advantage over many other agents.”

When she isn’t working, Amy enjoys checking out new restaurants and hot spots around Dallas with one of her many clients or friends. You’re also likely to spot her running in her Lakewood neighborhood with her three dogs.  As often as she can, Amy absolutely loves traveling both internationally and within the states. Living up to her life mantra “work hard, play hard”, Amy is having fun doing both.

You can connect with Amy at 214-773-5570 or amalooley@daveperrymiller.com.
