|Thomas J. Nelson is your San Diego County CA Real Estate Specialist.|
I suppose real estate was always the career for me. Both my parents and all of my grandparents worked in real estate sales or property management—it was the family business. My maternal grandmother, Frances, was the first to introduce me to that world by bringing me along to deals when she was babysitting me. Her husband, my grandpa Al, was in property management. He taught me about real estate investing as well as light construction work like painting, electrical, and plumbing. I helped them out at their rental properties ever since I was old enough to hold a paintbrush.
For almost thirty years, I owned and operated Nelson-Entertainment, a mobile DJ & event planning company; now retired. It started as just a hobby, but since then, I’ve worked at over 2000 weddings in addition to a multitude of other events. I’m very proud to have built that business from practically nothing, and I learned a lot along the way about running a business and serving people.
Ten years into that career path, I started working with my mother in her real estate business as well. Mom was also a developer, and I watched her use her skills to buy land and build houses. I still remember how impressed I was seeing her find contractors and deal with the red tape of the city. She built a whole community in San Mateo, called Bay Landing.
But above all, I remember seeing the relationships she was building with her clients. These people treated her as more than just their Realtor®. She was their friend. It was those relationships, along with the birth of my son, Wyatt, which inspired me to earn my own sales license. I continued to work as a DJ and in property management while I built my fledgling real estate business.
I would love nothing more than to lend my knowledge and experience toward helping you with your real estate endeavors, but I don’t expect your business simply because of our relationship—I only ask that you take the time to interview me each time you have a real estate need. I would also appreciate your referrals: if you know someone who would appreciate the level of service I provide, please call or text me with their name and phone number. I would be happy to follow up and take great care of them!
Buying or selling real estate is an enormously important transaction, and the representation you receive from your agent can have significant impact on your results. I want to be the agent that’s the right fit for your particular needs, and I promise to work diligently to exceed your expectations.
