Nancy Dearnley

PRESIDENT

Nancy is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in animal sciences.  Her original plan was to attend vet school but after graduation she decided that veterinary medicine was not her calling.  In the mid 1990’s Nancy built her first home when a local builder went out of business and forfeited a lot that her father had developed back to his company.  Armed with only a set of plans and a foundation put in place by the previous builder, Nancy’s father encouraged her to finish the home.  The second house that Nancy built was her personal home that she and her husband, Scott, lived in for 18 years.  It was after building this home that Nancy decided she wanted to make a career out of homebuilding.  In August of 1997, Nancy and her father, Richard H. Youngblood Jr., founded Youngblood Properties LLC and the rest is history. Since then Youngblood Properties has become one of Richmond’s premier custom home builders. Nancy has served on the Board of HBAR (Home Building Association of Richmond) as well the executive committee of the Sales and Marketing Council.  Youngblood Properties is also a member of HBAV (Home Builders Association of Virginia) and NAHB (National Association of Homebuilders).  Nancy is also very active in the community as a volunteer at the Richmond Animal League and Richardson’s Rescue.  Her dedication and hard work has saved the lives of countless Richmond area animals.  Outside of work, Nancy enjoys traveling, boating, shopping, floral design, and spending time with her beloved cats and golden retrievers, Jake and Elwood.
