Brandon Nelson is a passionate and successful realtor. He got an “honorary doctorate in houses” before he ever sold one. By that he meant, in his 20’s he became a journeyman carpenter, building and remodeling houses from foundation to trim. In 2004, Brandon completed the Bellingham Technical College Home Inspector program, and became one of the busiest inspectors around. Over the next 3.5 years, he completed nearly 700 inspections. He wouldn’t trade those crawl-space tours, attic-traverses, plumbing-probes or electrical-evaluations for anything. Today, in every house he shows, preview, or prepare to list, Brandon calls on that inner-inspector knowledge and experience.
Brandon has two beautiful, smart, athletic children, named Hayden and Jazzy. They astound him every single day, and Brandon credits their Mama – his beautiful, smart, athletic wife Heather – for their awesomeness.
Brandon and Heather are also athletes. His main sport since 1992 has been kayaking. He paddled, raced and explored in some of the most remote corners of the earth. Brandon is a 12-year veteran of Bellingham’s own Ski to Sea. And in August, 2013, with the help of his best friends and community, Brandon achieved a long-held dream of breaking the Guinness World Record for endurance paddling. He went 151.87 miles in 24 continuous hours, right in Bellingham on Lake Padden.
