Hi, I'm Brandon Nelson, broker and proud owner of Brandon Nelson Partners. I've been a Whatcom County Realtor since 2006.
From the tapering off of "The Bubble" years, into and back out of the recession, and through today's lean-inventory Seller's market I have grown the business and helped an increasing number of clients every single year - a fact I'm extremely proud of and grateful for. Prior to becoming a Realtor I was a licensed home inspector, completing over 700 inspections here in the Pacific Northwest. That education and experience is invaluable for both our firm and our clients. And before that I worked as a journeyman carpenter and licensed general contractor. You could say I've been "all about houses" since I was 20 years old.
I live in the Silver Beach neighborhood of Bellingham with my wife Heather and our kids Hayden and Jazzy. We're an athletic family, with ocean kayak racing being our main sport, and both Heather and I taking a "serious amateur" approach. I've achieved a Guinness World Record (24-hour distance), overall victory in the Ski to Sea 2016, and several other still-standing records in ultra marathon races in the US and Canada. Heather has been 'Top Gun Female' paddler in the Ski to Sea more times than I can count, and is - as of this writing - ranked #14 woman racer in the world. We make sure to get our share of week-long sea kayak camping trips or backpacking in the mountains with the kids every summer, too.
Our lifestyle, and the ongoing success of our firm, is due in large part to the amazing Realtors I'm honored to work with - the Partners. They make getting to "work" every morning an absolute joy. And based on our track record of 80% repeat and referral business, you can bet our clients feel the same way. Let's connect and talk real estate, or about the 'NW Way of Life.' I'd love to meet you!
