Zac and the entire Nelson Team were wonderful to work with. I can't recommend them highly enough. Zac was very thoughtful and patient and we relied greatly on his knowledge and experience. We followed his strategies which led to us getting multiple offers and he did a great job of negotiating the best possible offer.

Zac Nelson and The Nelson Team come VERY highly recommended! My realtor before Zac was quite competent, but Zac was masterful. Zac is very committed, a highly-skilled communicator and great at explaining real estate rules, processes, the market and real estate dynamics. He has a great depth of expertise that was apparent to me throughout the process. Before I contracted with Zac to sell my condo, I contracted with my friend's sister who is a Realtor to buy it (5 years ago) and the entire process was more stressful than necessary, because while she was a good Realtor, she was not a great Realtor. This time it was totally different. I trusted Zac implicitly which made the process as smooth as it could have been. He is always on top of it and really knows every step of the process in great detail. He's quite perceptive and insightful. I followed his advice throughout and it worked. He also excels at negotiating and helped me get a high offer and high appraisal. In addition, Kathy Nelson lends her gifted staging skills and decades of real estate expertise. This definitely increased the value of my condo. Their support team is simply excellent as well. I wish I could work with more professionals like this in my day job! My fiance and I will definitely use Team Nelson again when we sell his condo. A no-brainer! Less ... More

Zac Nelson helped me through the home buying purchase from Day 1, which was over 8 months ago. He was honest, patient, experienced, knowledgeable, reliable, trustworthy...Zac Nelson and his team at Coldwell Banker truly are second to none. It amazes me how he can keep everything so organized with multiple clients as I am just one drop in a bigger pond. He has referrals all over the industry as he works directly with Cherry Creek Mortgage (great company), home inspections, sewer scopes, radon mitigation, roofing contractors, electricians and plumbers. He and his team follow through, work weekends, they do not miss deadlines; You can't go wrong with Coldwell Banker & Team Nelson. I most definitely would, and already have recommended Zac and his team to friends and family. Less ... More

Zac and his partner Kathy provided excellent service and advice in how to prepare our house, when to put it on the market and dealing with each offer. We highly recommend him when selling your home or looking for a new one.

My wife and I first worked with Zac in 2008 when he helped us purchase our starter home. When we decided that it was time to upgrade, there was no question in our minds as to which realtor we would choose. We always knew that when the day came, we?d be calling Zac. Early on in the process, Zac provided us with an analysis of our neighborhood and an estimated sale price, as well as a list of suggested improvements and the effect they would have on the price. We followed nearly all of Zac?s recommendations. It took some hard work, but it was more than worth it when we accepted an offer that was above our asking price only two days after putting the house up for sale. The process of selling a home can be nerve-wracking, but Zac was a level-headed voice of reason and kept us well-informed and advised throughout the entire process. When the time came to begin searching for our new home, Zac had prepared us very well to make quick, well-informed decisions on each property we considered. With Zac?s help, we found our dream home in less than a week, which seemed like a small miracle given the state of the market at the time. The final weeks leading up to closing were smoother than we could have imagined, and Zac was masterful in communicating and negotiating with all parties involved. Credit is also due to Zac?s realtor partner Kathy, as well as their executive assistant Krista. They form a great team and we really felt like we had a wealth of experience and resources available to us during the entire process. At the closing of the sale of our old home, the buyer?s realtor remarked, in regards to Zac, ?you?re really lucky, this guy is great!? You know you've made a good choice when other realtors are telling you how good yours is, and I couldn?t agree with him more. Not a day has gone buy when my wife and I haven?t talked about how happy we are with the outcome of this experience, and that?s due in large part to Zac?s skill and professionalism. We?re so pleased with our new home that we can?t even imagine selling it, but if we did, we would call Zac in a heartbeat. Less ... More

I can?t say enough great things about Zac Nelson. He went above and beyond to make this a smooth process for me. I was an out of state seller that needed to have work done to my condo before listing it. Zac managed the entire process and did an outstanding job. Once the unit hit the market he had several showings and within the first week we were in contract. To be honest I was blown away by how fantastic of a job he did managing the sell of my property. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a real estate broker in Colorado. Less ... More

Zac helped us purchase our first home! He was amazing to work with. We had no knowledge of the home buying process, and Zac guided us through every step. He was knowledgeable, quick to respond, patient, and fun. He helped us through a multiple offer situation, in which we successfully purchased the house we wanted! In addition, he was great at recommending additional experts (home inspector, carpet cleaner, etc.) - which we used with great results. We have no doubt that we will use Zac as long as we are in the Denver area! Less ... More

Zac was very helpful through our buying process. We were first time home buyers and Zac was always available for any questions we had. My fiancé's mother is a real estate agent in another state and Zac was happy to answer her questions as well, which meant that he went above and beyond his job requirements. We are very appreciative of the time he spent with us and love our new home!

Zac is a great Realtor. He care a great deal about his profession, and more importantly his clients. He is honest, hardworking, and utterly humble, which is an incredible combination when working with a real estate agent. He handled our case through extremely challenging circumstances, and we would recommend him without reservation to friends or family.

Zac helped us find the home of our dreams! He was very helpful, and only showed us houses that were what we were looking for, and because of that we were able to find our home very quickly. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. We will always reccommend him to all of our friends!

Zac was the best. He spent countless hours to assist me in finding the right home. He has great knowledge of the different areas around Denver, which was very helpful since I moved from out of state and had no idea about locations. He answered questions and returned phone calls immediately. He is very honest and trustworthy. He is ethically above reproach. I would highly recommend Zac.and know anyone who uses him and his agency will be very satisfied.

Zac really did a great job for my family. We relocated within a short timeframe and with very little knowledge of the area. He carved a lot of time out of his calendar to help us find the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood - and I have to say that I am very particular! The fact that he was able to keep up with my finicky expectations and with constant professionalism is amazing. I highly recommend Zac Nelson!

We can't say enough positive things about our experience working with Zac. We had a short window of time to find a new home and were dealing with low inventory on top of that. At every step of the process Zac was responsive and listened to our needs. He was able to fully explain our options, whether dealing with multiple bid situations, understanding aspects of the contract, inspection, closing, etc. He definitely had our best interests at heart and we would recommend him to anyone. Great job! Less ... More

Zac was great. This was our first home purchase, and we couldn't have worked better with another realtor. Zac listened to what we wanted, but made appropriate and welcome suggestions. He kept us informed of his own schedule, and made sure his partner Kathy was available when he was out of town for a couple days. He described the process from the outset, and everything was exactly what he said it would be. He even provided lunch for us and the movers on moving day! Zac found us just the house we were looking for, and we couldn't have been happier with the service. I recommend him without reservation, and we will certainly use his services again if and when we need a realtor. Less ... More

I have used Zac to sell and purchase 3 homes in the past couple of years. Zac is very knowledgeable on the local market and all aspects of the realty process. His response time is excellent on all questions that arise through the process. On my new home searches he has taken into account all my wants and needs and finds homes that match. He does not waste time on homes that do not meet my criteria. When selling my other houses Zac is excellent and making recommendations to make my house stand out above the others. He ensures that the house is listed on all possible searches and realtor website. I would recommend Zac to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the greater Denver area. I plan on purchasing another home within a year and would not consider using anyone else. Less ... More

Zac was our selling agent during a recent home sale in Park HIll. He did an outstanding job with competetively pricing our home, and we had a very satisfactory outcome. We appreciated all the "modern marketing" tools he used: priority listing on Zillow, staging consultation, fantastic photography, targeted marketing, and local agent networking. Multiple offers confim that he made our home as appealing as possible to the right group of buyers. The process was very efficient and fairly painless, with only one (minor) hiccup in the contract portion. Less ... More

I highly recommend Zac! He is always professional, personable, and genuinely wants to do the very best for his clients. I have had the opportunity to work with Zac on the buying and selling side of the home search. He is dedicated, honest and provides top notch service! I focused my most recent search in the Highlands neighborhood where Zac has a great understanding not only of the real estate market but also of the pulse of the community. He provides fair and honest advice throughout the entire home buying expereince - from the search to the offer to the terms and condition of the contract. I would highly recommend him to anyone - whether you are a first time home owner or looking for your next new home Zac will provide excellent service! Less ... More

Zac helped me purchase my first home near Barnum Park in the summer of 2012. He was extremely patient with me during the whole process, even educating me a bit more than usual, as I am in the financial industry. His knowledge of the Denver metro was of especial help as I am a transplant from Illinois. One thing I thank Zac for to this day was his convincing me to buy the home I did. We had seen probably seen 15+ homes, all of which lacked something or other I was looking for. He always reassured me that no home was going to be my dream home per say, but that there was one out there that would meet my top requirements of proximity to downtown, location in each neighborhood, etc. Those reassurances definitely helped me stay confident in my decisions. I have recommended Zac and will continue to do so as my experience with him was definitely a good one. Less ... More

As a first time homebuyer I was a little intimidated by the prospect of finding and purchasing a home. Zac took his time and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. We had many unusual requests which Zac graciously met. He exceeded our expectations every time. He made every appointment, met every deadline, and responded to every inquiry. It felt as though he was invested in us and our needs as much as we were. He got to know us and helped find the perfect home based on our personalities, lifestyle, and future plans instead of trying to sell us on any particular house. He will be the first person we call if it ever comes time to sell or buy again. Less ... More

I met Zac quite by accident at an open house several months before we actually put our house on the market - and in turn bought a new house. Zac has an instantly likeable personality and immediately gives you a sense of energy that he's passionate about the real estate industry. I ended up bouncing all sorts of questions off Zac and asked if I could contact him in the future. Shortly thereafter, we decided to put our house on the market and begin searching for a new home. We reached out to Zac and never regretted our descision. Zac and his team arrived in force to get the old house sold. In fact, it went under contract within 3 days and slightly above asking price (just before the current "boom" got going). The entire process was smooth and really quite effortless. The buying process turned out to be more of a challenge. The housing boom started to pick up steam and we ended up attempting offers on 4 or 5 houses over a period of a few months. We were frustrated, but Zac was not. Throughout the process, Zac always remained optimistic and ever-diligent in helping us find a home. I seriously don't know how he maintained his willingness to work with us, considering we called him day and night with questions, requests for information, cold feet, and ideas on how to beat out other bidders. Sometimes we were outbid. Sometimes we backed out. Zac always told us the right house was coming along. We are now settled in our new home and can ambitiously recommend Zac Nelson and his team to other sellers and buyers. Zac continues to keep tabs on us and make sure we're happy in our new place. We give him high marks for professionalism, integrity, patience, energy, and continuing follow-up to this day! Less ... More

My fiancé and I were looking to buy our first house, and at the time I was still living in Portland. Zac was incredibly knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods of the city, as well pointing out pros/cons with houses based on what we were looking for. Being first time home buyers, he was great about pointing out things that we hadn?t even thought of. He was great about taking my fiancé to a lot of houses in a variety of neighborhoods that we were interested in, and once we picked one went out of his way to let my fiancé come multiple times to take photos and videos so that I felt confident in our decision. He always responded to emails and phone calls quickly, and patiently stayed on the phone with us to walk through the process and help us wade through inspection findings. I will always recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home, and if we're ever up to go through the process again, we will turn to him. Less ... More

Zac helped me purchase my beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath 1068 SF Condo near downtown Denver. Zac was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. He listened well to what I was looking for and had a great selection of homes to show me. I could have been happy with several of them, but the one I bought was the perfect fit for me. I run a green business in the construction industry and it was important to have sustainable design features at home including solar panels, recycling, energy efficient light fixtures, water saving plumbing fixtures, and much more. Zac was extremely knowledgeable, and helped guide me through the buying process. I've recommended him to many others. Less ... More

Zac helped my family sell a home in Denver. He was very patient and accomidating with us. He kept us abreast of all possible leads and was very thorough in following-up. We successfully sold our home in Denver. At the same time, Zac helped us purchase a home in Louisville, CO. He was again very patient as we looked around for quite a long time in Boulder County. I cannot even remember the total number of homes he took us to see until we found the one that was right for us. Any new homes that fit our criteria, Zac was on top of, asking us if we were interested in viewing said home. Zac, and his team, were very personable to us, as well as other agents and buyers/sellers. He was honest enough to give his opinion on a home if he thought it wasn't right for us and was not interested in a quick sale/purchase for his own benefit. Without a hesitation we would recommend, and have, Zac to future buyers and sellers. Less ... More
