Joel Nelson | Team Leader, Listing Specialist joel@joelnelsongroup.com

Joel started as a teenager in real estate on the property management crew of a classic 1912 apartment building in Philadelphia, learning to work with experts across every trade, and to keep owners and tenants happy with creative problemsolving. After obtaining his degree from American University in Washington DC, Joel worked across the country managing group homes for residents with disabilities, followed by a 3-year engagement as a business process consultant. Upon returning to Washington, Joel and his wife Thonya fell in love with Capitol Hill, where they still live with their two children and adopted dog and cat. Since 2001, Joel has been fully focused on finding, fixing, and selling historic homes as a Realtor on behalf of his clients and as an investor and lover of old houses and new designs. In 2006, Joel and a group of like-minded entrepreneurial agents founded the first Keller Williams (KW) office in DC — now 400 agents strong and growing. Joel’s varied and hands-on experiences as a counselor, investor, renovator, and marketer have all combined to make him a truly extraordinary advisor and guide, helping his clients achieve their individual goals in the vibrant neighborhood fabric of the Nation’s Capital.
