"Luxury in the Details..."

Top Agent Geoffrey Nelson offers a 20-year track record of marketing and selling the San Francisco Peninsula's most unique properties. Year after year, his portfolio "defines the market," showcasing homes of rare provenance, prestigious location, and architectural flair. Geoffrey is one of only two agents to have sold an eight-figure Hillsborough estate in four consecutive years: 2018 ($13,750,000), 2019 ($14,100,000), 2020 ($16,225,000, #1 Hillsborough Sale of the year), 2021 ($11,425,000, $13,100,000) Nelson Luxury Real Estate Group works from Coldwell Banker's historic offices in downtown Burlingame.

Geoffrey's satisfied clientele includes many industry leaders in the fields of private equity, venture capital, biotech, high tech, social media, law, and medicine. The luxury corridor of Hillsborough, Burlingame, and San Mateo represents a perfect match for his client demographics, but as a Peninsula native Geoffrey has achieved results ranging from San Francisco to Atherton, Menlo Park, Woodside, Belmont, and beyond.

His client portfolio includes power players from iconic firms such as Hellman and Friedman, TPG, Sequoia Capital, Meritech Capital, Gilead Sciences, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, NetSuite, Oracle, Ernst and Young, Visa, Kaiser, SRI International, Franklin Templeton, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and many more. In a crowded field of local real estate professionals, these clients continue to choose Geoffrey for his strength of market knowledge, precision valuations, and unrivaled reputation for elegant marketing. He has earned the accolades of his repeat clients by maximizing every detail to their advantage and ultimate success. Licensed since 2001, his curated approach to client services is always expanding and continues to creatively thrive.

"Telling the Story, Creating a Luxury Brand for your Home..." 

Two keys to marketing your home are 1) "Telling the Story..." and 2) Positioning your home as its own luxury brand. Geoffrey commits more marketing attention, resources, and curated premium quality than any other agent. Other agents often attempt to model after our innovations of sophisticated twilight photography, Wine & Cheese events, literary storytelling, metaphoric titles, and cinematic narrations. But it's only our bespoke touch, standing behind the lens, delving into the provenance and strength of each home, and truly "telling the story" that differentiates our clients' success. This is the essence of our curated marketing approach. Think of it as a "farm to table" meal presided by a sommelier, compared to other agents' fast food! And the difference: the best optics in the marketplace, highest price per sq. ft., new neighborhood records established, and lower days on market. 

The real estate market is in perpetual motion whether on the MLS or off the MLS. Accordingly, Geoffrey is always geared to a "time is of the essence" mindset paramount to his clients' success. Another pillar of his service: "luxury in the details," whether it's the finest caliber marketing, or fast-on-his-feet negotiating, it is often the nuances and finesse of your Realtor that can make the biggest difference in the end. Working with Geoffrey will deliver the most in-depth knowledge of every neighborhood, every house, every sale, and the priceless insider network of the top agent community. While many agents define themselves by volume or as "listing clearinghouses," Geoffrey has managed to keep his service on a true boutique level, ensuring personal attention to every detail.

Born in San Mateo and a San Mateo Park resident, Geoffrey maintains well-established connections in the community as a Peninsula native. He enjoys Bay Area culture with his wife and business partner and their family of five children ranging from pre-school to college. And still space for 3 French Bulldogs! Passions and pursuits include local history, classic jazz of the 1940s-1960s, playing jazz guitar, cinema, Giants baseball, architecture, and a glass of French wine.
