This realty company went above and beyond. I live in Colorado Springs, and they assisted with all aspects of selling my father's property in Summit County. I would recommend them to anyone, especially Tyler.

Debbie and Ned were so gracious and most patient with us on the sale of our home. They eased us through the process, always responsive to our questions. Could not have asked of more from these two. Things happened so quickly and they handled all issues so professionally. Thank you, Nelson Walley.

10 gold stars!!! We had such a wonderful experience working with Nelson Walley Real Estate to sell our home. We really appreciate all that Ned, Debbie, and the entire team at Nelson Walley did for us during the selling process. My wife calls them the "Dream Team." We would highly recommend them for anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado!

We worked with both Ned and Debbie on buying a property in Summit County. They knew the area, the market, and the "insiders" view. We are happy with all aspects of our transaction. We didn't know them prior to this transaction, but we consider them both friends now!

Wow! Totally blown away by all of my interactions with Nelson Walley Real Estate! They are the most personable people and very professional. They know everything about Real Estate in Summit County because they are very experienced and have been residents of Summit County for years. They have a high attention to detail and have a strong work ethic. I would work with them again in a heartbeat!

Ned, Debbie, Ashley and the whole Nelson / Walley team is EXCELLENT! From the first meeting to chat about selling our house, to the fully squared away staging process, to the actual sale - Highly efficient! Fully managed and organized process. We lived in Summit County for 20 years, and we would highly recommend working with this very knowledgeable and professional team.

Ned and Debbie did an excellent job of pricing our home. Helping with interior changes for a quick sale and getting through the sales process. This is the second time I have used Ned and they have done an excellent job each time.

Our recent interactions with her regarding the sale and purchase of residences in Silverthorne exceeded our expectations. We feel Debbie went beyond what was expected in paying attention to our situation outside of what we would have considered normal working hours. She consistently devoted attention to our dealings during her personal time. As a matter of fact, we got to the point of suggesting Debbie go out of town on vacation since those actions seem to generate more activity for us. She responded each time whether it was from Texas, Denver or the hinterlands of Nebraska. Debbie continued to stick by us with a positive attitude during particularly trying times involving the sale of our Ponds townhome. She consistently fought to present the property in its best light while doing everything possible to determine the real intentions of prospective buyers. Debbie continues to go above and beyond by providing service after the sale. We greatly appreciate her abilities, her friendship and everything she has done for us. She is an asset to your organization. We would and have highly recommended her to additional buyers.

So impressed on every level. I’ve been involved in over a dozen realty transactions in my life, and my experience with Debbie tops them all. She is thorough, thoughtful, and does plenty of extra (unnecessary but appreciated) homework on behalf of buyers. Although she didn’t need to, nor was there any expectation, she dug into “what could go wrong” to uncover potential problems with the sale with the spirit of protecting me as a buyer. She also footed the bill on a few expenses that were way above and beyond to make sure this was a solid deal and in my best interest. After the sale, she’s been a wealth of knowledge about the area and local contractors. I’ve never had an agent work so hard on my behalf, especially when the basics were covered so professionally and perfectly. It’s rare to find talent like this in the realty world. I would recommend Debbie without hesitation for any realty transaction.

When we met Realtor, Debbie Nelson up here in summit county we were at an all time low with our Milwaukee property. On our third realtor there, I announced that I hated all realtors when we met. But Debbie, full of love and faith, confidently told us that when the time was right our house would sell and the one we were meant to buy would appear. She was right. Months and months later, with the house on Green Tree just under contract (with our 4th realtor), our slice of heaven came on the market. She tirelessly helped us seal this rare deal and then turned around and sold our condo in 18 hours. Cash offer that closed in 3 weeks. David says that she’s the best realtor ever. I think that she’s a woman who loves her work, family and the place she lives. She’s genuine and real. We are so grateful to have met her and are thrilled to have her and Rick as friends.

We were not new to buying recreational property when we met Ned and his team. In any price range, but especially in the very high-end range, we wanted to be very careful and make the right choice. Ned, Debbie, and the entire office are immaculate professionals. In real estate, especially when buying a home in an unfamiliar market, communication is everything. Every text, phone call, and e-mail were handled with efficiency and promptness and we had some kind of contact with Ned and his team every day. It was a pleasure to work with them. We found our perfect home in only a few months being guided and counseled at every step, never coaxed or nudged. I recommend Ned and his team to any buyer or seller in Summit County.


Wow, what an amazing team to work with! Ned and Debbie have a full service operation that includes excellent staging advice and service, property website development, picture perfect photos, and most importantly they are highly responsive and market experts. We listed our home just a few weeks before Summit County closed down due to COVID-19. During this time Ned and Debbie provided great insight, support, and guidance. They helped us navigate a successful sale even during this challenging time. We can't say enough great things about this team and we look forward to using them to help us find our next vacation home.


We highly recommend Debbie Nelson! We, and multiple friends, have worked with Debbie on various occasions, and each time she has gone above and beyond in providing outstanding customer service. She is very knowledgeable about Summit County and about real estate transactions and their nuances. Buying a home is such a personal, emotional decision and Debbie has a deep commitment to helping you find the perfect place for you to call “home”. This is truly one of the most honest, sincere, and personable individuals we have ever met.

Great team. Versatile, works well with other brokers, they live locally, know the area thoroughly, the local housing market, and current plus upcoming listings, and how to operated the business of being a realtor. Manages E-Contracts and other computer processes really well. Always on top of things, keeping buyers on straight path to successful closing. Ever helpful. And did I say, really good, nice, ethical, friendly people. All of them: Ned, Debbie, Ashley and Tyler. You'll make new friends; and be the better for it.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are so grateful to have a realtor who was looking out for our best interests from the start. We definitely were not your “easiest” customers, but you continued to put our family interest and needs first. And now we have a perfect home for our start in Summit County. Not knowing anyone in the area, we also appreciate your hospitality and help getting connected. We are loving our new community. Thank you for all you have done!
