Real Estate Agent Scott Nelson

LookingGlassRock optim agent fallback

Scott Nelson is a North Carolina native sharing his knowledge of these mountains, whether it be  hiking or housing. He has called Asheville home for the past decade. He worked as a marketing director for a commercial real estate firm for 3 years before transitioning into a broker. Before that he worked in construction and continues to work with local builders today. 

His background in construction comes in handy to help identify problems that may arise for both buyer and seller clients. He offers solutions by connecting clients to a large network of local professionals that he trusts and uses personally. His experience in home building also helps guide investors in finding the project that fits their vision.

Combining his knowledge of the local market trends and creative approach to marketing, Scott will help present your property in the best light to get it seen and sold. His knowledge of home building will help prevent any pitfalls and give a solid understanding of issues that could arise in the future. These attributes allow Scott to give his clients a clear understanding of their investments and what to expect. Scott provides transparency for his clients to help guide them through what can be a stressful process. 

In his spare time, you can find him working on stained glass projects, or taking a hike with his wife, son and dog Arlo aka “The Muppet”. He can recommend some of the tastiest local restaurants but will claim his garden and kitchen provide the best meals around. Scott loves these mountains and all that it provides. He hopes to help others join in the same appreciation that comes with calling these mountains home.

"Scott Nelson is an awesome realtor and a great person too. He went so far above and beyond for us in so many ways and never put any pressure on us as many realtors do. I truly believe that he wants what’s best for his clients more than he cares about a commission. If you want a great realtor, call Scott!"


"We had an awesome home buying experience with Looking Glass Realty and our agent Scott Nelson. Scott's dedication to his clients was evident from day one all the way to closing day. Scott helped us with the loan process every step of the way and constantly negotiated with the selling agent on our behalf. We ended up with a reduced purchase price which is basically unheard of in the current housing market. I highly recommend Scott Nelson for your real estate needs."

-Russ Hamilton

I would STRONGLY recommend Scott to anyone. Looking Glass Realty was a great experience for us."
