Jim Nelson embarked on his Real Estate career in 2010 at the bottom of the worst recession since the 1920’s.  People questioned his decision to jump into the epicenter of the economic crash but he knew that if he could carve out a career at the bottom, the rest would take care of itself.

Fueled by his passion for investment real estate and his desire to help people obtain their dream of home ownership, Jim brings renewed vigor to the Coronado and San Diego markets. Whether you are looking for the “forever” home, are a 1st time buyer, or a seasoned real estate investor, Jim’s insights on the macro & micro markets creates winning solutions for his clients.  By leveraging his degree in Psychology from UCSB, his customer service credentials from top Resorts in Park City and San Diego, Jim is able to promote and sell your home or investment in Coronado and beyond.  Well regarded in the community and among his peers, Jim makes up half of the Nelson Riddle Team and is excited to meet you and help you buy or sell today.
