Get to know Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS

I'm a husband & father and eternal student of life first. Member of Active Rain since 08/04/2008.

Between late 2006 and early 2012 over 8 million Americans lost their jobs and over 411,000 Realtors quit Real Estate. I went to work every day as a Realtor; (except Sundays, those are my family recharge days). Between late 2006 and early 2012 over 6 million Americans lost their homes. I bought 2 homes, one to live in and one to rent to others at a fair market value and never missed a payment. I was and still am your "Winter Patriot", when most agents were behaving as Sunshine Soldiers and Summer Patriots. You can count on me when the going gets tough, I relish the challenge!

I'm a published co-author of The Power of Mentorship For the Business Entrepreneur (co-authored with some of my heroes: Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy & Jim Rohn-to name a few, I've been published in Mobile Beat Magazine, Mission Valley News & Views and a featured guest on San Diego 6 News and KSJO FM, KSAN FM and ESPN AM Radio. I'm a networker & lead generation specialist for my Working By Referral business model.

I'm Residential Investor & Realtor, "I've been selling since 1999 and wholesaling, rehabbing, fix n flipping and buy & holding, property managing for myself & my family since 1982. I Trained with Michael Gerber's E-Myth Academy, Brian Buffini & Company / Providence Systems, Sandler Sales-San Diego, Nouveau Riche University Real Estate Investing-Glendale,AZ, James Smith Companies, The Group-Colorado, Ninja Selling, CRS,  I'm a Winforms (Zipforms) Trainer and e-Pro and I'm studying for my Broker designation now and 3 associate-partners who help me cover my "out-of-areas". (We're The Fab 4) covering all 4 corners of San Diego County! I also have a National Referral Directory in my Active Rain Community and Buffini & Company Realtor Network!

I run a master mind group at Coldwell Banker for Buffini & Co. Peak Producer graduates. I run a biweekly meeting of 40-50 networking entrepreneurs for the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and I've won multiple Bronze & Sterling awards for my sales. I'm most proud of my 8 year-in-a-row % Star status as one of San Diego's Top 5% Realtors; as voted on by my clients for most outstanding customer service.

I enjoy travel, walking our dog on the beach, gardening, golf, history and recharging with my family. Yes, I do hang the "Sorry We're Closed" sign up every Sunday and typically after 6PM weekly! It's a good life!

Areas I serve and have regular sales in: Coastal San Diego, Downtown, Golden Triangle: La Jolla & UCSD/ UTC areas, Del Mar, Encinitas, North Park, Hillcrest, Normal Heights, University Heights, College, Mission Valley, Del Cerro, San Carlos, La Mesa, select areas of El Cajon, Otay Ranch, Eastlake, Otay Ranch, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Old Town, Bay Park-Mission Bay, Pacific Beach (PB), Ocean Beach (OB) and Point Loma.I have specialized skills working with seniors, military and first time buyers. My listing services are customized to fit equity sales or distressed properties.

I refer other agents when outside my scope; I do not over extend myself in that regard as I'm too busy in my areas of expertise anyhow. All other areas would most likely be referred to a local Realtor expert. I'm a founding member of the FAB 4 which is a group of cooperating Realtors that divide the San Diego and Riverside Counties into their areas of expertise and refer all other clients to each other; clients are served by area experts this way!

I enjoy working with a variety of buyers (always have, not trendy) and my six client types tend to be first time buyers, senior citizens, parents buying for their kids (college dorm alternative) and Relocation professionals / retiree's and of course military and investors in distressed properties: short sales, foreclosures, etc.
