One of the top brokers at the firm in terms of sales, Nelson has steered the trades of approximately 300 properties with a total value of more than $2.5 billion. Notable sales have included 435 10th Avenue, 30 West 21st Street, 200 East 11th Street, 625 Broadway and 100 Vandam Street. Notable clients have included the archdiocese of New York, Bank of America, the Bromley Companies, the Related Companies, Zeckendorf Development and Toll Brothers.

A Bethesda, MD native, Nelson earned an English degree from Colgate and now lives in Connecticut.
