About Ray Nelson

Hi, I’m Ray! I’m a REALTOR in Fredericksburg VA.  I’ve been in real estate since 2005, and prior to that spent 10 years in insurance and mortgage loan origination.   I specialize in buyer agency, foreclosures, land sales and commercial sales.  Happily married with a 5 year old son, I pursue other interests like drumming , Freemasonry and autism advocacy and education. I spend a great deal of time helping my son learn to grow and thrive, as he has autism. 

With my history in sales, I can talk about myself all day. However, I feel that it is more important for my clients that I listen to them.  What are your needs? What tailored approach should we take to help you find your dream home? What special features will help your home sell quickly? To that end,  feel free to email me with any questions, or post them up as a comment on my blog.
