Jeanne Nelson, Associate Broker, Thurston Real Estate!
Jeanne Nelson Head Shot1
I have lived in the Vail Valley since 1979. I raised two children in this Valley and taught many more as a preschool teacher at The Learning Tree and a 20-year veteran of the Eagle County School District.

I love Colorado and I take advantage of everything this unique community has to offer, from hiking and skiing to singing with the Vail Community Choral (we are the Dicken’s Carolers you see wandering the village over Christmas).

I want to help you meet your goals; if you are looking to downsize or relocate for retirement, a first time buyer, or a family that needs to upsize, let me help you explore your options.
