As of 2021, we have stopped requesting Zillow reviews from our clients. Zillow became a competing broker in 2020, completely double crossing the real estate community and breaking their original promise to "only be a non-compete-resource" to our industry. They provide misleading market-value info, mine your info and our clients information too; they even attempt to solicit our clients; we are no longer cooperating with Zillow and their questionable business morality.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in San Diego, CA.
I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Thomas for over the last 12 years. I initially met him through a colleague at work and was immediately impressed by his level of professionalism, customer service, and in-depth knowledge regarding the housing market.
I leaned on Thomas heavily in 2008 (during the market crash) as I set out to achieve the goal of being a homeowner for the first time. During our initial meetings, he took the time to listen attentively to ensure he understood what type of home I wanted. He made me provide him with a list of my "must have's" vs " I'm flexible on this" along with the style of home I preferred and then we began to search for the home of my dreams! It was not an easy task because I had visualized exactly what I wanted and we both were persistent on making sure we found a home that was very similar to what I had imagined.
Throughout the entire emotional process, Thomas was on time for all appointments, provided an immediate response when I contacted him, discussed various strategies when putting in an offer, and also challenged my thinking a little bit when needed (which is my personal favorite characteristic). I learned very quickly that I can trust Thomas wholeheartedly.
After many tours, he finally found me the house of my dreams for a very low price (2 story / 4 bed / 2.5 bath / 1800 sq ft = $350K). It was even better than I had visualized! Once I walked in I told Thomas, "This is it! Make sure I get this house please!" With multiple offers on the table, I got the house of my dreams thanks to Thomas.
His customer service is second-to-none and he does an excellent job representing his clients.
Thomas recently (2 months ago) help me sell my home (during COVID) and I was still amazed at his knowledge and ability to make sure we received an offer above my asking price. He also made sure all parties followed our strict COVID procedures when touring. I had an offer of my dreams by the second week!
We are now in the process of finding my next dream home and I look forward to us going through the process again together. I've always said that Thomas is a key person in my life that helps my real estate dreams come true. He's not just my realtor...he is a life-long family friend. Without hesitation or reservation,
I highly recommend Thomas as a realtor. He's so awesome that he is my friend's realtor as well. Within my friend network, three of us have Thomas as our realtor and to me...that says it all. He also very strict as it relates to confidentiality. Meaning, my friends did not know I was selling my house until I told them, which is another example of his high level of integrity.
Thank you so much Thomas for all you've done for my family and I and I look forward to continuing business together for many, many years to come.

Sold a Condo home in 2020 in San Diego, CA.
San Diego County, has great negotiation skills, educates his clients and adds extra personal touches to the home-selling process.
These include in-person meetings to align on expectations as well as reliable status updates once a property has been put on the market. His friendly demeanor and competent staff make the selling process feel so stress-free. Thomas helped us sell our condo in record time for top market dollar! We highly recommend working with Thomas and will in the future if we have real estate needs again.

Bought and sold a Condo home in 2019 in Imperial Beach, CA.
This is the third time Thomas J Nelson has been my realtor and each time he has done an outstanding job! In 2011, Thomas helped me purchase my first home in San Diego. This was a time when buying a home in San Diego was extremely difficult (this was a short sale). In 2018, I once again requested his services as my realtor and he sold my house at above asking price; and just last month, he helped me purchase a new home.
Thomas is extremely knowledgeable with VA loans and he is all about "taking care of veterans." He is well connected in the San Diego area and will help you with everything related to selling or buying a house. During this last transaction, Thomas went above and beyond to make sure I got my dream home. After so many years having him on my team, he has become more than a realtor and I consider him a close friend. I highly recommend Thomas J Nelson as your realtor whether you are selling or buying a home.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2018 in San Diego, CA.
We very much appreciated Thomas, both professionally and personally, throughout our real estate transaction and beyond. He made sure we had all our ducks in a row before we started bidding on properties as we were cash buyers (hence expedited closing). As a result, when we began the bidding process, everything went smoothly and we were in a position to respond quickly and with all of our documentation in hand. Thomas' up front preparation was very instrumental in getting our complete bid packages in promptly. For a brief moment we had a hiccup along the way and Thomas was calm and resourceful, which was invaluable! Thomas gives other RE agents a high bar to match his commitment, professionalism and caring. My husband and I have been so very impressed with Thomas' level of service, honesty and attitude before, during and after our condo purchase! When we are in a position to buy again, Thomas will most certainly be our realtor.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Thomas through an SD Chamber Veterans Business Alliance Group that he lea
ds. He is a true professional in the fact that he is always looking for ways to help others. Whether this means helping them to find the home that is right for them, looking for ways to connect quality individuals through networking, or building genuine long-lasting relationships in the SD community. Thomas is your guy if you are looking to establish great community contacts within San Diego.
I had an excellent experience with Thomas; he is professional, knowledgeable, and beyond helpful! Being in the military I travel/deploy frequently and he was always able to assist even while I was thousands of miles away and continues to assist even after I have closed on my property. I have no complaints about Thomas' service or working with him what so ever. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the San Diego area!
Thank you once again for helping me with my real estate needs. As you know, I'm extremely busy in my law practice, and I truly appreciated being able to count on you to shoulder the weight of listing my home, handling the details and handling the craziness of the multiple offers and escrow. It made it easier at work knowing you had the house details covered.
I was please with the work you did for me, our third transaction, and plan to use your services in the future when I decide to buy again. I would certainly recommend you to my friends and family.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated your time showing me properties in San Diego. I would refer you anytime! San Diego just was not right for me financially as a single person.
I want to thank you again for all your time and effort and if you ever happen to come to Fort Worth, I would love to cook a meal for you and Ailina.
