We Can Help You.

Ben Carlson, Gilbert, IA

When we started looking for a house we were set on an acreage but had a tight price range, Brandi was on top of showing us anything in our price range she could find and anything we could find. She knew a good amount about every location we looked at including the communities it was around. We loved that she was accessible via email or text message as some times phone calls arent always easy to make. I would without a doubt use Brandi again for buying a house!

No pressure. Very respectful and professional. Recommended selling price from her was pretty much spot on. She listened to us, we listened to her and we had a desirable outcome!

Brandi was very efficient and professional. She was excellent at reassuring us that our house would sell quickly, and she was right. She was easy to contact and returned our phone calls promptly. The information she gave us was always accurate. We really enjoyed working with Brandi and her team. Our closer, Robin Claybaugh, is our hero. She hung in there and resolved the issues with our title.

Pam Thompson, Story City Ia

I had confidence in Brandi. She has a good track record. Brandi is very knowledgeable and efficient. She went above & beyond my expectations. I would recommend Brandi to anyone! The only thing better than Brandi's efficiency is her personality. She is friendly, accessible and easy to work with! I had a good experience!

Brandi has a tremendous amount of knowledge and wealth of experience in the area and takes the time to get to understand her clients needs and wants & puts in the work to truly help you find the right place to suit your needs. I was thoroughly impressed with her dedication and commitment to help me find the place that was right for me.

Dolly Mason, Virginia

I am living out of state so all business and transactions had to be handled by phone and internet. Brandi Nelson met all of my needs in a timely and professional manner. I enjoyed working with Brandi and would highly recommend her. Thank you, Brandi.

Brandi really has her “fingers on the pulse” for Real estate in our area. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Hamilton or Story County.


As a first time home-buyer, I was incredibly nervous about the buying process. I had a limited time frame to find a home, and a limited budget to work with. Brandi was wonderful to work with! After our initial meeting, she was able to summarize what I was looking for in a property, and found great homes for me to view. Brandi's expertise, and knowledge of the market in Ames was invaluable. She's honest, candid and makes a point to respect your time and opinions. The home she helped me find is a perfect fit for my needs. When the time comes to sell my place, she will be my first phone call.


Brandi sold our home and negotiated the close on our new house in less than 60 days. Brandi and her team are results driven and a class act. Brandi was always available for all of my questions and very responsive.


I've purchased five homes in 30 years and Brandi is the best realtor I've worked with. Her knowledge of the real estate market as well as the communities of Central Iowa is a tremendous asset. She takes the time to find out what your real estate needs are and is very easy to work with. Brandi helped me find my perfect retirement acreage. I turned over the negotiations to Brandi and she was able to successfully arrive at the desired price in a minimal amount of time. Bottom line Brandi produces results.

Brandi sold our house and helped us buy a new home for our family. She was incredibly professional and helpful. Brandi has always been very quick to respond to our requests and helped make buying our new home a great experience.


Brandi is a no nonsense realtor/broker. She tells you how it is as she sees it, and she is most likely right on. We had 3 contracts on our house within a couple weeks of listing, and closed within two months of listing. I would use her again in a heart beat.


Brandi is a hard working agent and will do her best to get you the very best of what you want. She works well with others and does a thorough job as she is very up-to-date on all requirements needed to complete her job.


Brandi was always there throughout the process. She made things smooth and easy for an out-of-town buyer. I would highly recommend using her for all your real estate needs.


Brandi did an amazing job selling my home in just 4 days - in January. Brandi and her team made the process seamless, I would highly recommend the Brandi Nelson Real Estate Team!


Nicole was very prompt and courteous. She was very quick to respond to my wife and I when we had questions or concerns. We had a great experience all the way through the process. She was kind enough to bring us pizza the first night in the new home while we were in the process of remodeling day 1!! My wife and I are very grateful for her help.


Very knowledgable! Great response time! Answered all questions and returned messages and calls in a timely manner!!! Hands down the best realtor I've ever had!!!


Thanks to Brandi and her assistance for selling our beautiful home in Hubbard! Best gal to work with, you can't go wrong! Was a large home with several buildings and landscaped yard. Has been in our family for over 100 years, so was important to get the right people that understood it's value.


Brandi was very helpful in the sale of our acreage. She knew that we were on the fence about selling and approached us with the fact that the market was very much in our favor. Brandi sat and listened to what we needed to accomplish with the sale of our acreage and helped make it happen.


We had a great experience working with Brandi Nelson. We found our home on Zillow and arrange a meeting with her right away. She was responsive to everything we asked for. She guided us through the process with regular emails that shared needed information. Her team was efficient, respectful and very professional.

We had our home listed with another realtor for almost 4 months with no showings or interest. Listed our home with Brandi Nelson and home sold within 3 weeks. Brandi was amazing in all aspects. If anyone is looking to sell their home or buy a home I would recommend Brandi Nelson over any other realtor.


Brandi was a great asset to have on our team while we were trying to sell our house. After a slow fall showing, she actively pushed us to get our house ready to show again this spring, knowing the market was hot. We had it listed that week and had two offers the first day it was shown! Brandi was helpful in dealing with the offers and all of the selling process. She really had our backs during a stressful time and it was appreciated. We really liked her ability to get things done and how understanding she was of our needs and schedule. I recommend Brandi Nelson Real Estate Team to everyone! Nicole Krauel helped with the buying side of our transaction. Her patient and approachable personality made our home buying experience better. With this crazy market and my husband's unpredictable schedule, it was nice to have someone that was understanding of our needs and there to show us (way too many) houses as often as we needed. I'd honestly recommend Nicole to anyone searching for a new home!


Nicole found us a house without us ~ We live in Colorado and were only able to visit Iowa once. Nicole found my son a fantastic home !! Without us even being there. She is very knowledgeable and resourceful !! We highly recommend Nicole !!


Nicole is fabulous! So easy to work with and goes above and beyond your expectations! She found us the perfect house! I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

melissa j lammers

Incredible experience, irreplaceable. She fought for us through a difficult FSBO sale. Would recommend her to anyone in need of a house. She was willing to do what ever it took for us to get into our new home. She took the time to get to know us and our family, such a wonderful, personal experience.


I cannot recommend Nicole enough, nor can I imagine working with any other real estate professional. She is absolutely out there to get you what you want and take your interests and dreams to heart. She keeps you in the loop when she's talking to other parties and gives you detailed updates of where you are in the process, whether it's paperwork or negotiations. But what really stuck out is that she treats you like an old friend, not a client. My wife and I were first time home buyers with a VA home loan, and Nicole made sure we understood everything before we signed or committed to anything. She fought for us with difficult sellers and helped us find exactly what we were after. Despite the fact that it's 3 hours of driving for her to get to and from our new home, Nicole came with us to the property every time. I'm sure there are plenty of other great agents out there, but if you don't talk to Nicole then I think you've done yourself a disservice. She's extremely knowledgeable and if she doesn't happen to know the answer to your questions, she'll say "I don't know, but give me a second and I'll find out". Thank you Nicole for all your work!


Nicole was very patient and helpful in our year long search. She was always quick to respond and made the buying/closing process as stress free as possible.

Derek Zerr

Nicole’s attention to detail and her overall customer service is what made this experience amazing! We worked with another realtor in the past and it was a terrible experience. Thanks Nicole for the excellent customer service and getting back to us so fast with all the questions we had! We will forever refer you!
