Nina Estate Agents & Lettings Ltd: A legacy of care and expertise 

Established in the heart of Barry, we at Nina Estate Agents and Lettings Ltd pride ourselves on our deep-rooted understanding of the local area and a commitment to exceptional customer service. Our journey began with Nina, the visionary behind this family-run business, whose path to entrepreneurship was paved with diverse experiences and an unwavering passion for connecting with people.

Meet Nina Chivers, Founder of Nina Estate Agents & Letting Ltd

Nina’s story is one of dedication and resilience. Leaving school at 16, she embarked on a professional journey that saw her excel as a shorthand typist and telex operator at Geest Shipping Line. Her administrative prowess led her to a role as a PA for a software provider until she chose to focus on her family, juggling various jobs while raising her children.


Her innate ability to empathize and listen to people’s needs drew her to the world of estate agency. Starting with just a day a week at a local estate agency, Nina’s commitment and passion shone through. She juggled multiple roles, from cleaning jobs to working in a cafe, all while nurturing her growing interest in the property market.


Years of dedication, coupled with her National Estate Agents exams from NAEA, paved the way for Nina to establish her own agency. With a strong foundation built on understanding the emotional aspects of selling and buying properties, Nina and her team strive to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible for their clients.


Nina’s commitment to excellence and compassionate service has seen the business flourish. From a small team of acquaintances to over 10 dedicated staff members, Nina Estate Agents and Lettings Ltd now boasts a successful presence covering the entire Vale. Their approach is deeply rooted in professionalism, utilizing the latest technology like 3D tours, floor plans, and featuring listings on major property portals, social media, and their website.

At Nina Estate Agents and Lettings Ltd, it’s more than just a business; it’s a family. Staff members, some with over a decade of loyalty, bond socially, creating an environment of trust and reliability.
