Get to Know Sandy Nelson

You'll want to talk to me when it comes time for buying or selling a home in the greater Olympia area.  I'm truly passionate about real estate, and I know exactly what you want in a Realtor:

You want a professional who is competent in her field, dedicated to your needs and passionate about her work.

You don't just want marketing; you want superior marketing that gives your property  an edge over the other properties listed on the market. 

You want your interests protected with warranties and guarantees.

Everybody offers service; you want exceptional service, where every detail is attended to.

You want a clear understanding of what you can expect.

If you needed an operation, You'd want the best surgeon. If you were sued, you would seek the sharpest attorney; so when it comes to real estate, a major investment, you'll want to turn to me and my team.

Quality doesn't just happen by chance. It's accomplished by high expectations, intelligent planning, tireless effort and skillful execution. 

My   services  are designed to make your needs the focus of my actions.

I practice my profession with the support of two full time Realtor team members, who make up the "Key Group". As a "Key client" you enjoy the benefit of having three professionals with a wide range of expertise and training at your service at all times. Our designations include GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), ASP (Accredited Staging Professional), SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource) and SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist).

If you are, or ever have been in the military, you'll appreciate that I have been affiliated with the US military for over 20 years, and as such, you'll understand how familiar this makes me with relocation issues. I appreciate the service of our military and their family members and want to put myself at their service for all their housing and relocation needs.                                                                           

What else do you get with me? You get a person who believes in giving back to the community. I try to accomplish that by serving on community organization boards and donating to charities close to my heart.

Hi Sandy, Carol & I continue to enjoy working with you. Truly said, you have been most generous with your time, and most diligent in your professionalism, as we have sought to find the right home in the Olympia area. Your due diligence and candid assessments have been much appreciated.
SSG Gilbert Marquez
Sandy was exceptional in ensuring that my home purchase was nothing but positive. Being that this was my first home, she made it surprisingly easy for me in understanding the whole process and ensuring that my needs were fulfilled with the utmost intergrity and professionalism.
Brooke Bell-Allendes
Thank you immensely for steadfastedly supporting us with the sale of our home. I know there were many unforseen twists and turns as you negotiated our home sale, in which you showed patience, integrity and compassion. It was a wonderful experience working with you.
Jennie and Hirsh Diamant
We enjoyed working with Sandy so much! Sandy's professionalism, attention to details, and understanding of the real estate market are all outstanding.
Larry Francis
Sandy's exemplary performance of duty exceeded all standards. her attention to detail and property purchase protocol, including negotiating tactics, enabled us to secure our house at a great price.
Brian and Yvette Jones
We have purchased several homes in the past and experienced a variety of real estate agents, ranging from the poor to the exceptional. Sandy definitely fits into the latter of these two categories. Sandy is a consummate professional - she tirelessly searched for a property for us, and didn't waste our time looking at listings she knew would not interest us. When she did find us that perfect property, she continued to work closely with us, and even attended our closing to ensure we understood the process. When we decide to sell and/or purchase a property in the future, Sandy will be the first call we make.
Susanna Haynie
I flew into town and only had a short week to look for houses. Sandy had the patience to show me pretty much ALL the houses between Dupont, Lacey and Olympia! 50 houses! Need I say more? Never grumpy, never grouchy that, even after a week, I hadn't found a house yet that I liked. On my last day I finally found a home that was suitable for our family. I signed the offer, left town and Sandy did everything else! We did not have to worry at all, and that alone took a huge load off my shoulders. I will recommend her to my friends anytime.
Jay and Prim Jeyasingam
Sandy was instrumental in helping us buy our home. She listened to what we wanted and as a result we were able to narrow our search significantly and find exactly what we were looking for within a week. Sandy's presence throughout the buying process was very reassuring and her advice was always genuine and spot on. We never got the impression that she was "out to sell' but more so that she was there to ensure that we made decisions that were in our best interest. Sandy made the purchase of our first home relatively effortless and quite fun. We have had no qualms in recommending her to our friends and will definitely rely on her real estate expertise in the future.
Jerry and Gina Hobbs
Sandy is so pleasant to work with and has truly become a friend for life. What we love about Sandy is that she's there for you after you find your home, she doesn't just close the sale and forget all about you. She was there on moving day, providing our friends and family with food and drinks, and she's always so thoughtful. We recently celebrated our first year anniversary in our new home and there was Sandy, giving us flowers to celebrate the occasion right along with us. I strongly encourage all of my friends and co-workers to contact Sandy if they're looking for a great real estate professional they can trust. She definitely made our first home buying experience a very pleasant one. We'll always be thankful to her and consider her a friend.
