Smart real estate in Austin, Texas. A top-10 agent in the largest office in Austin, KW faculty, Agent Leadership Council, GRI, EcoBroker.
Led by Julie Nelson, The Nelson Project is a team of 4 real estate professionals with Keller Williams Realty serving Austin, Texas buyers and sellers. We concentrate on "smart" real estate ... smart buying strategies, smart offers, smart pricing and just simply an attentive and intelligent focus on the market, its intricacies, its changes and the evolving real estate needs of our friends and clients. A former business analyst, Julie is in her 10th year in real estate and is consistently a top performer and a faculty member in the largest real estate office in Austin (actually the largest office in the country). We take a tech-savvy approach to marketing your property with out-of-the-box mindset. In addition to an Austin focus, Julie owns property (and kayaks) in Port Aransas on the Texas coast and muses about semi-retiring to the beach. As with any real estate issue or in the midst of making significant investment decisions, please consult with your Realtor of choice. Of course, we would be honored to assist you with your real estate needs.
Areas of Expertise
We specialize in residential metropolitan Austin. 70% of our business is core Austin (if you can get to downtown within 15 minutes, that's "core" ... it's an expanded version of "central"). Whether single family, condo, townhome, emerging markets or investments, we are well-versed and experienced. We are homeowners, experienced investors and coastal Texas investment property owners. We can talk at length about east Austin, central Austin, south Austin, Crestview, Northwest Hills, Manor, downtown, tacos and margaritas.
We are tech-savvy and bring that to the table for our clients. Is your agent promoting one link for your home? How about 8-12? Check out www.8601Appalachian.com as an example of our marketing ... bringing resources directly to prospective buyers.
"We have recently sold our home and wanted to pass on the name of our wonderful realtor in case you or someone you know is thinking of buying or selling... Please consider working with Julie Nelson of Keller Williams. We cannot say enough good things about Julie. When we decided to begin the process of selling our home, we interviewed other agents and never felt quite comfortable with them. Julie instantly impressed us with her knowledge and appreciation of Central Austin, her straight forward approach to the selling process, and her endless patience in answering our numerous questions. In addition, she is intelligent, friendly, extremely competent and detail-oriented. In short, just the kind of person you want on your side during the potentially stressful time of buying or selling a home. Please pass on her name to one and all!" - Liz & Steve
"Julie was personable and technically savvy. She listened and sent us listings that were below our highest price range, which I appreciated. Other agents seemed to push us into higher prices. We feel we paid a good price and found a great agent!" - A. Gentle
"While most realtors are trying to be #1, Julie Nelson remembers to put her clients in first place. Not only is she very professional, but she is also a joy to work with. When I wanted to buy, she got me in the right location at the right price. And when I was ready to sell, she sold it within a week!" - A. Reichert
"Julie Nelson is an excellent realtor. She advocates on behalf of her clients and truly understands the market. She has a real talent in presenting all the information in a positive, factual manner that is easy to absorb. She creates a partnership with her clients that goes beyond the real estate transaction, she is a resource for her clients, before and after the sale." - S. Acevedo / J. Osimo
"Very easy-going and extremely savvy in her field, Julie was an absolute joy to work with. She always seemed one step ahead in the process, which was an enormous help for us as first time buyers. Not only did we have a wonderful ally in the most important decision we've ever made, but we also gained a friend. She'll be the first call we make when we decide to buy again." - S. Birkenmayer / W. Sklar
"Oh yeah, don't worry about us as clients. You will forever be our agent. We think you're an awesome person and an industry badass! I recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks again!" - E. O'Brian
Julie helped me to buy and sell my house. She is simply the best at what she does and knows how to make things happen -- so thorough, so on the ball, so effective. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again if the need arose." - N. Lesch
"Eric is about to go to the final walkthrough with my realtor, Julie Nelson. She just saved me $3000 yesterday. She rocks." - E. Lancaster
