The vision for Nestiny was born out of a passion for helping people buy and sell homes in an easier and more logical way. Our mission is to revolutionize the real estate industry by offering a new, modern way to guide a home buyer through the home buying journey from start to finish.
We are the buyer’s champion
Nestiny accomplishes this by providing a free and simple web-based experience to guide buyers through a personalized educational process to self-discover their readiness to buy a home. We help buyers choose a real estate agent to work with them to find their next home. Our Concierge services can also help them find other trusted professionals if needed to make their home buying journey remarkable.
Jody Clower, Founder and CEO
Jody is Nestiny's founder and fearless leader. As a licensed Realtor on the real estate frontlines, she experienced firsthand all the frustrating inefficiencies of the home buying process for both buyers and agents. She witnessed her clients and peers struggling with the same unnecessary challenges every single day- wasting valuable time and money. After watching that turmoil and noticing that there was no one-stop destination available to solve this mounting problem - she decided to build a smarter solution to help everyone make home buying more simple, easy and fun.
She believes the key is online education at the buyer's pace and convenience. This empowers buyers by sharing accurate expert advice and exclusive new tools so they can discover their personal readiness to buy a home. Nestiny helps a homebuyer avoid costly mistakes to save money and time and realize their dream of homeownership in a fun, educational environment. Jody brings unwavering leadership, vision, and over 20 years of strong expertise in the tech and consumer service industries, while providing the team with dynamic enthusiasm and product strategy direction. In her free time, she likes to exercise her creativity by writing songs, making hand-stitched jewelry, trying new recipes and cuddling her cute puppies Nola and Evie.
