In 1996, Elsa Nelson, one of the founders of Nelson Shelton & Associates broke away from the large national real estate organization she helped form and decided she was going to assemble the best team of real estate agents she could possibly find. The 100 handpicked associates were, like Elsa, independent and experienced in their field.
While most real estate firms spend a lot of time and effort into creating independent offices, Nelson Shelton & Associates found advantages to being all under one roof. Because there is only one office, there is only one standard of unity. Rather than different managers with their own interpretations of how to service customers, there is only one voice speaking for the company.
The strength of the company lies in the diverse group of quality, experienced agents that call the brokerage their professional home. Today, the firm has some 300 agents. It is the largest independent real estate company on the Westside of Los Angeles. The average Nelson Shelton & Associate agent has more than 10 years experience in the field. Each agent takes great responsibility to elevate the standard of the profession by adhering to a strict code of ethics. The client comes first – there is no exception.
We don’t want an office at every corner of the city. What we are going to have is a very high quality of service. That’s a throwback to traditional real estate service.Elsa Nelson
