The Great Homes Group
RE/MAX 200 Realty
Abby has lived in Central Florida since 1999. After graduating from Rollins College, where she was a member of the crew team, she began her career as a Realtor® in 2004.
In college, Abby majored in Spanish. She continued her studies in Spain, recognizing a second language would be an invaluable tool no matter what career she eventually chose. Following graduation, Abby vacationed for several months and found unexpected ideas running through her head. A lightbulb moment led her into real estate.
Her first four years, she partnered with a more experienced agent whose advice was invaluable. Working mainly with buyers in a seller’s market, Abby quickly honed her contract negotiating skills. In her first year, Abby was named “Rookie of The Year” by her RE/MAX office.
When her associate moved into the commercial arena in 2008, Nelson split off just as the Orlando market peaked and created her own team.
As the real estate market corrected, she hit the ground running and rather than complain about the bleak conditions, Abby used them to her advantage and developed systems to sell REO (bank-owned) and short sale properties. In unfavorable market conditions, Abby and her team managed to close over 170 transactions in one year. Since then, Abby has been honored with numerous awards from local magazines, RE/MAX, and even featured in The Wall Street Journal.
Her hi-tech marketing strategies, meticulous systems, established team, and client dedication allowed her not only to maintain her business, but also increase it significantly. In today’s demanding marketplace, Abby believes it is impossible to provide adequate service without a TEAM of specialists. Her seven-person team of professionals has roughly sixty combined years of experience in real estate.
“The Great Homes Group” is quickly becoming one of the premier real estate teams in Central Florida, and offers experience, local knowledge, cutting edge technology and effective marketing, as well as 100% dedication and commitment to their growing clientele.
Early in 2012, Abby became a mom. She and her supportive husband, Brian, became the proud parents of Dagny! Then in Feb. 2014, Dagny became a ‘big’ sister to Blake. Taking on this role can be demanding in its own right. Adding this new responsibility while running a successful real estate group and attending to client needs is challenging, but Abby never misses a beat. She makes it look easy. Many of her current clients have been with her since 2004 and have become a wonderful and steady referral source. Her persistence and willingness to do anything necessary and ethical to best represent her client(s) shows in every transaction.
