Jon Nelson goes up and beyond when it comes to helping one acquire property.  Being out of state Jon was our eyes, ears and legs.  For example when the insurance company asked for pictures of the property Jon volunteered to take the pictures and e-mail them to us, when we asked for measurements of where the refrigerator goes, Jon volunteered his services.  Jon was right on top of the closing.  Followed up on every detail to make sure there were no last minute hitches.  Our experience with Jon Nelson receives nothing but praise.

Jon Nelson was so professional yet down to earth throughout the entire process. We were moving in from out of town so we had many questions that a local buyer would not normally have. He answered them all and spent one long Saturday in March driving me and my wife around and showing us many houses. The best part was he was able to close the deal quickly even though he had to deal with a relocation company. We can’t thank him enough for how well the process went. We would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house.

Jon Nelson is a fantastic broker. After trying without success to sell the house in Monona for almost a year with another broker, I listed it with Jon and he negotiated an offer and sale within 30 days! His experience, creative strategies and professionalism are incomparable. I recommend him highly whether you are considering buying or selling a home in Madison.

My wife and I bought our current house with Jon Nelson and we were very impressed with his honesty and salesmanship. He seemed to know exactly what we were looking for and found us a beautiful home that we enjoy very much. We were so impressed with Jon we asked him to sell our old house. With Jon’s help on how to make our house sell faster, it really made the process very painless. Jon made suggestions on what to do to make it sell quickly. He knows what he’s doing because it sold the day the For Sale sigh went up. AND if sold for the asking price. We can’t thank Jon enough for helping us out buying our new home and selling our old one. My wife and I would highly recommend Jon as a Real Estate Agent.

I want to thank Jon Nelson for selling me such a lovely house.

And you went beyond the call of duty to assist with a financing glitch. You are a great credit to your profession.

We worked with several other realtors in the Madison area without successfully selling our home before we found Jon Nelson. When we interviewed him, we knew we had found a true professional and indeed, he delivered the results wepicture of Molly the Airedale were looking for. His professionalism, marketing expertise, ability to plan and implement an informed strategy, and the value-added services he provides distinguish him from others in his profession. With our backgrounds in quality management and the construction industry, we draw on our professional and personal areas of expertise when we say that Jon Nelson is the best Realtor we have worked with anywhere. Jon devotes his time and attention to the properties he lists, staying in constant communication and providing regular updates. He is proactive in his approach and lays out a mutually agreed plan of action to sell a home. Working with Jon is a delight, not only because of his competence but because of his friendly manner and sense of humor which helps reduce the stress of selling a home. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Jon Nelson did an outstanding job of representing our family in the sale and purchase of our homes.

Jon sold our home and adjacent property for more than we first believed we could have commanded. During the sale of our home, it was not uncommon for us to find Jon answering late night calls, giving sound advice, and bringing the latest offer to our home on a Sunday evening.

We refer to Jon as “the real estate agent that never sleeps” as his work ethic was relentless in his search that led to our current home of our dreams. His mathematical approach of providing a cost analysis for home sales in our neighborhood assured us that we were not overpaying for a new home and that Jon was negotiating the best deal possible.

Most importantly, in a fast paced world of real estate, we found Jon taking time to skillfully play on our piano, coordinating time for our dogs to meet and run in the back yard, setting up lunch while we were considering an offer, taking an interest in our children, and meeting us for a cup coffee prior to our closing.

Jon’s personable style, along with great humor, makes him extremely easy to work with. His patience and understanding with the many emotions involved with buying and selling a home made us comfortable with the process and assured us that we were working with a caring person and professional real estate agent.

Picture of door with starburstLuckily, my good friend and co-worker recommended Jon Nelson to me, as Jon helped her and her husband purchase their first home. One meeting with Jon and I knew this was someone I could work with. After a few more meetings I knew this was also someone I could trust. By that time we were more than business partners, we became friends. I cannot recommend Jon enough for a real estate agent; in fact, you’d really have to be nearly insane not to work with him.

Jon’s knowledge of all aspects of the real estate industry impresses me every time we meet. He understands building construction, interior design, landscaping and banking and of course how real estate works. I came into the home buying realm knowing the basics; Jon taught me so much more along the way. As we toured condos, he pointed out things that I never would have even thought to think about. He also explained the building’s construction and the advantages/disadvantages that came with it. In the process of creating and accepting an offer, he made sure all the things that needed to be changed were in the offer and knowing how the real estate world works, he helped me come up with an offer that ended up being pretty beneficial to me.

I seriously could not have done this entire condo purchasing process without Jon. Well, I suppose physically and mentally I could have but the stress Jon saved me cannot be measured. Not only did he help make the entire process less stressful, we actually had a lot of fun together. If you need a thoughtful agent, especially as a first-time-home buyer I can highly recommend Jon.

Jon Nelson was the ideal real estate agent for my mother Catherine. My mom is in her late eighties and it was becoming apparent that living in her house she and my father owned for over 40 years, raised a family in and loved– was CRS logobecoming a burden not a joy. She loved her neighbors, her location, her church, but the responsibility of the upkeep of the house and all that entails was too much. A close family friend knew and respected Jon and recommended him to my mother. I was reluctant to hire a real estate agent I had never met before and because I lived out of town I had to trust him completely. My mom set up a meeting and Jon impressed me immediately, he had a gentle respectful approach toward my mom and spoke to her as a client; he never looked past her to me. He did realize I was my mother’s advocate and carefully worked with me without dismissing my mother.

Jon was straight forward and diplomatically explained to us what we needed to do in order to sell the house in a timely fashion. He worked alongside us like an expert fishing guide and suggested we complete a home pre-inspection which we did; it turned out to be the best decision we made. It enabled us to fix some problems, such as doing radon mitigation without holding up the sale of the house.

Jon understood the need to sell the house in a short period of time. The house we loved was sold in a timely, relatively painless manner. My mom, sister and I believe we got a fair price in a tough sellers market. My mom is living comfortably in a lovely assisted living facility and not worrying about selling a house. Jon helped us through a tough chapter in our lives with humor, an easy accommodating manner, and gave us peace of mind while working with us from over 100 miles away. We highly recommend Jon Nelson.
