WHY A ZESTIMATE IS NOT AN ACCURATE WAY TO ESTIMATE YOUR HOME'S VALUE

Zillow's Zestimate is simply an algorithm, that is only as accurate as the data behind it, meaning that it may be outdated or incorrect.

Zestimates should only be used as a broad guideline. It should not, in any way, be considered an appraisal.

A comparable market analysis from a local real estate agent and a professional appraisal of the home are the best ways to learn your home's true value.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Tim and Drew came highly recommended by a few of my close friends. We worked mainly with Tim on this purchase, and we couldn't have had a smoother experience working with him and the rest of the Willis Allen team we were in contact with as we planned our move from SF down to SD. Following our initial conversation, Tim continually checked in and provided market updates in the months leading up to our tour...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Tim and Drew were fantastic to work with throughout our home search. Tim found us a home that had not come to market that fit our needs perfectly. He helped us negotiate the best total package (sale price, due diligence period, and longer-than-standard purchase date) for our needs and then worked aggressively to market and sell our home. After the properties were under contract, he continued to provide h...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I can't say enough about Drew Nelson and his team at Willis Allen - they are incredible and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in La Jolla! Drew helped me navigate a crazy market twice with my condo in La Jolla, and he was as attentive as if my small 1 bedroom were a multi-million dollar mansion. He was thorough, thoughtful, and extremely helpful, always available to answe...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
It was a fantastic experience working with Drew, Tim, and the team. It was a luxury to have such an experienced team to support us in our search and ultimate purchase of a new home. Working with a team that often handles larger, more expensive transactions can be intimidating, but the Nelson Brothers Team made us feel like ours was the most important item they were working on. The level of professionalis...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Tim and Drew are the best Realtors® we’ve ever met in our 40 years of buying and selling a dozen homes. Their professionalism, expertise, integrity, and interpersonal skills are exceptional and are outweighed only by their astounding work ethic. With a smart and savvy strategy, They sold our luxury beach house well over the asking price after 2 days on the market. They then successfully negotiated anothe...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Drew and Tim were incredible throughout the entire process. As first-time home buyers, we leaned heavily on the Nelson brothers for all aspects of the process. From their discerning eye for the market and understanding of what we were looking for, to their innate sense of the market and pricing, to small details along the way during the inspection process, we could not have asked for nor received better ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Drew and Tim were exceptional. We have now bought and sold two houses with Drew and his team and I can tell you there is no more professional, knowledgeable, and "on top of it" real estate team in La Jolla. Drew was answering texts and e-mails at all hours of the day and night, he was incredibly detail-oriented and he helped make the closing process extremely simple. We have referred Drew and Tim to my e...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
As a first-time home buyer in a new market, I was extremely nervous about such a life-changing event. Having Melissa as my agent turned a lifelong dream into reality, as she was someone I could trust with finding exactly what I was looking for, and within my budget. Melissa takes great pride in her work, and she truly demonstrated her ability to listen (which is a very rare attribute these days) I would ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Drew and Tim provide excellent service and advice. They are very knowledgeable about market trends and pricing. They are great advocates and know when to be firm with buyers, and when to concede. We put our home on the market with Drew and Tim, on a Monday, and received a cash offer on Tues - our house went into escrow in one day and sold 30 days later! We couldn't be more satisfied with their services.

— Seller

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
If you are looking for a home in La Jolla there is simply no better team out there! We moved our business over to them after months of very little movement with our previous realtor and couldn't have been happier with the move. They brought incredible levels of insight to the La Jolla market and neighborhoods and now, we are thrilled to finally be moving into our forever home. We are 150% Team Nelson!

Melissa was professional and polite in all situations displaying excellent mannerisms. Her attention to detail and ability to build loyal customers are unquestionable.

I would highly recommend Melissa in the field of real estate sales

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
It was a pleasure for us to work with the Nelson Brothers, knowing we could count on their frank responses to all the different questions and concerns we had—about remodeling, timing, pricing, staging, and negotiating. Selling a family house will always be a fraught experience, but for all that the process couldn’t have gone easier nor the outcome have been more satisfying.
