About Us


Since its inception in 2007, Nelson Brothers has acquired and managed over $240 million in assets through the acquisition of 19 student housing properties and 3 assisted living properties across 9 states. Nelson Brothers focuses on targeted growth opportunities and value-added investments for its clients through capital improvements, cost efficiency, and revenue maximization. Its entities include Nelson Brothers Professional Real Estate LLC, and Nelson Brothers Property Management Inc.


Our strategy is to focus on assets that cater to growing demands—in particular, niche industries such as assisted living or collegiate housing—that we believe to be stable and less correlated to market fluctuations. Further, both target demographics—college students and the elderly—are desirable demographics.


Patrick and Brian Nelson, principals of the firm, have been involved in the underwriting, syndication and acquisition of over 40 properties totaling more than $500 million, including major rehabilitation and ground up development on student housing properties. Their portfolio includes student housing properties ranging in values of $3 million to $44 million nationwide.
