Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.375M in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA.
Drew and his assistant sold our home in a short amount of time for a very respectful number. This was an estate sale, our grandparents' home so it was an emotional time but Drew and Holland made it a fairly smooth process and provided great professional advice and services. The time of year to market and sell a home was not ideal, but they made it happen and got us the best price we could have asked for. We are happy with the price, the marketing, the networking and the overall sale. We are truly grateful for their hard work and expertise and would use and recommend them in the future.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA.
We first worked with Drew in 2005 when he found us a wonderful investment property in North Pacific Beach. We were so impressed with his expertise, diligence and attention to detail that we called him again when we purchased a second property in 2008. Later, when we were sellers, Drew did a wonderful job for us again, selling our property at our asking price in a very challenging market. We have worked with numerous agents over the years and we honestly feel that Drew is the best agent we have worked with. We have referred him to several friends and each one was as impressed and happy as we were. It is such a pleasure working with an agent as hard working as Drew. We heartily recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $1.1M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
Drew Nelson is a first class professional in real estate. He 'listens' to what is is YOU are looking for and doesn't waste time showing you something he knows you wouldn't care for or is entirely out of your price range.
Drew and his associates are honest and upfront. He does what he says he will do and has an immense amount of patience with his clients. He understands a real estate purchase is a huge investment to most of us and truly wants to see his clients be happy with their purchase.
We have recommended Drew to several others looking for real estate in San Diego and we will use him again.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.375M in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
Drew represented our interests in the sale of our home with the highest level of professionalism and the greatest sensitivity to our personal and financial needs. He has a level head, calm demeanor, and a firm but pleasant negotiating style. I especially respect and appreciate his personal integrity, market knowledge and street savvy. He and his team were diligent in promoting the sale of our home, and made the sale and closing of our home a smooth process. He is a great asset to the real estate industry.
Drew and his team were fantastic! We were shown many options and each time we were closer to the house we wanted to live in and call home.
The years of experience Drew has is not only a benefit to him, but also to whomever works with him. There were several occasions we'd walk into a property and Drew would point out 5 things we wouldn't have noticed without him - retaining walls that may cause concern down the road, roofs that had the smallest issue, and important re-sale pro’s and con’s for when we were ready to make our next big move.
I have to admit, we would have spent much more money on properties that weren’t as great of a fit without his help. Drew’s price negotiation and knowledge of the price points in all of the San Diego area were comforting. He understands the numbers and doesn't let the excitement of owning a home cloud judgment during the exciting process.
If you are looking for a home, reach out to Drew and his team at Willis Allen to help you find exactly what you're looking for! We did - and for less than other houses we looked at!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.775M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
Drew knows what he is doing - he has a vast knowledge on the market, is extremely detail oriented, and makes home buying fun experience. He is patient, always available and really takes the time to make sure we understood every detail along the way. To say we recommend him is an understatement - we wouldn't be in our home with any other agent.
Drew has vast expertise in the La Jolla market and is well connected in the community. His understanding of a client's needs in light of the situation made for a very smooth closing process. When issues do arise, Drew is quick to provide solutions and give options to his client. His thoughtfulness and patience make the difference and places him in the top category of all real estate agents. I would recommend Drew to any buyer/seller in the La Jolla / San Diego market.
Drew made our home buying experience a pleasure. Drew's knowledge of the La Jolla and San Diego real estate markets is impressive. In addition, Drew consistently operates with a high level of integrity and honesty. I would highly recommend Drew to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We have worked with many agents over the years and have never been as impressed with any as we are with Drew Nelson. We cannot say enough positive things about Drew. He is an outstanding agent: professional, knowledgeable and personable- someone who works tirelessly on your behalf. Drew is ethical and honest and available when you need him. We highly recommend him.
