Joel Nelson - Team Leader & Listing Specialist

Joel got his first hands-on experience with real estate as a teenager, working for several years on the maintenance crew of a classic 1912 apartment building in Philadelphia. The job taught him early how to work with experts in every trade, and to keep tenants happy with creative problem-solving. In 1989, Nelson moved to Washington, DC to attend American University, where he obtained a degree in psychology. That foundation has been invaluable in daily life as an agent and consultant, as he helps people see their own competing objectives aligning with those of another party for mutual success.

For six years, Joel worked for a national company managing group homes for residents with developmental disabilities. Along the way he married, and he and wife Thonya moved to five different cities for work assignments. They returned to Washington in 1998 when Joel accepted a position with a business and technology consulting firm, and fell in love with Capitol Hill, where they now live with their two children. Once back in DC, they immediately began finding, fixing, and selling historic homes, and in 2001 Joel decided to work full time to help others make good purchase and sale decisions as a licensed agent. In 2006, Joel and a group of like-minded agents founded the first Keller Williams (KW) office in DC - the fastest-growing brokerage in the City.

Joel's varied and hands-on experiences as a counselor, investor, renovator, and marketer have all combined to make him an extraordinary advisor and guide, helping his clients achieve their individual goals in the vibrant neighborhoods of the Nation's Capital region.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $625K in Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.

I purchased my home on Capitol Hill with Joel's help. He was fantastic. He was a great listener on what I was looking for, but he also was savvy enough to show me some things I didn't ask for but ended up wanting. I got a great deal on my house and have been very happy with it ever since.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Near Northeast, Washington, DC.

Joel and his group were terrific. Every aspect of the process was well executed. From pricing, to repairs, to staging and marketing. Our house was under contract in less than a week. I would highly recommend Joel, Derek and Mark to anyone looking to sell their home.
