"My Career as a police officer allowed me to build a foundation of community trust, integrity, commitment, dedication and the desire to help people. For over 20 years I protected homes in communities and now I have the ability to match home buyers and sellers together to make those communities even better. My family is important to me and I understand what makes a house a home.
To be successful in this market you need to understand the surroundings, have exceptional communication and negotiation skills, be resourceful, have a strong network of individuals and most importantly listen and advocate for you, the client. My commitment to you is to work harder than you ever imagined while treating you and your home purchase or sale like it was for my own family.
Whether you are purchasing a home for the first time or you’re a seasoned owner, my goal is to find you a home where you can make forever memories, live your dreams and enjoy life as it passes by day after day."
Grady was amazing and listened to the needs of our family and was patient in guiding us to the home that was right for us. I would recommend him to anyone! [Full review on Zillow]
After nearly 20 years in the military with more moves than I care to remember, Grady is the Real Estate agent I’ve had, bar none! 100% focused on his clients, goes the extra mile to make sure you’re taken care of! [Full review on Zillow]
We truly feel we couldn't have asked for a better agent. From the get go Grady Nelson was responsive, accommodating and flexible with our out of town search. He instantly made us feel like we were his top priority. Anything we needed, Grady was quick to provide or find a resource that could. Purchasing a home in an entirely new state was a big leap for us. Having Grady guide us through the process and give us insightful and honest information was invaluable. Grady's knowledge of the market and the area gave us details and history only a true local would know. Not only is Grady extremely professional, but he is also a joy to be around. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Grady to friends, colleagues or family looking to purchase in the area. He is absolutely top notch. [Full review on Zillow]
I would trust Grady in helping us buy (or sell) a home again in a heartbeat! He operates with high integrity and was always available for us when we needed him most. He paid such close attention to us, it felt like we were his only clients. I was surprised to see that he closed 3 other houses within the same week as ours! He was patient and really listened to our needs. He never pushed us or pressured us to buy any house before we were ready. We area new to the Portland area and he guided us in the nuances of home ownership in the NW. It took us 4 months and dozens of houses to find what we were looking for but Grady was there with us every step of the way. [Full review on Zillow]

Grady is an amazing realtor who offers world-class customer service and knowledge of the Portland suburb market with his hands-on approach. We are an out-of-state family with 3 small children who was looking to relocate to Portland. A thriving downtown, beautiful nature, great schools, and better cost of living attracted us to the area. But this was not an easy task, as we had no prior connection to Portland. But Grady embraced us - introducing us to the various towns, driving us from neighborhood to neighborhood from house to house, and helping us to navigate through school systems and tours in order to select the best neighborhood and home to meet our family's needs. While we were at home in CA, he would check-out and video any potential properties on our behalf. This made our home search go more smoothly. With his help, we were able to finally narrow down the neighborhood that best matched our family's goals (Lake Oswego and West Linn). Grady's former career as a police officer and his board membership in one of the local school districts really gives him an insider's perspective and knowledge of the local towns and schools. Grady is a very likable, easy-going and honest guy; we felt immediately comfortable with him. At the same time, he is a firm negotiator and felt lucky to have him on our side when placing potential offers. We highly recommend Grady to help any family find their dream home in the Portland area! Our family had some unexpected personal changes that precluded us from relocating at this time. Our last 3 months working with Grady was such a positive experience. We will undoubtedly contact Grady again if we continue our Portland home search in the future. Sincerely, Nancy and Eric [Full review on Zillow]
We were so fortunate to work with Grady Nelson in the fast-paced Portland real estate market when buying our home. He has unparalleled local knowledge which enabled us to focus on safer areas with growth potential. He recommended excellent contractors to evaluate potential issues or complete necessary work. In fact, Grady did more than recommend the contractors, he scheduled their time and met with them at the residence since we were out of town. Grady is an excellent communicator, and promptly responded to our calls and emails. He is a strong negotiator on his client's behalf and always kept our best interests in mind. Without reservation, we would contact Grady again should we need realty services. [Full review on Zillow]
Grady is not only an amazing realtor, but an incredible person overall. He helped us find our dream home in an absolutely perfect location. This is our fourth time buying a home and we couldn't have been more impressed with how well it went. We have never had such a smooth experience and we owe it to the knowledge, support and unmatched honesty of Grady and his network. It was obvious from day one that Grady was not out to make a buck. He genuinely desires to help his clients find the perfect home. His background on the local police force gives him a unique advantage over other realtors who may not have as deep familiarity with the area. When it came time to negotiate Grady was instrumental in helping us save big. We would have easily spent much more without him. Thank you Grady!!! [Full review on Zillow]
Grady was fantastic from beginning to end. We were just starting to look at moving to the Portland area and Grady went all in with us. This meant so much to us that even though we weren't sure we were going to move here, he didn't hesitate to give us all the time we desired to look at houses and neighborhoods. He went above and beyond looking at houses for us when we were out of state and not able to look at them ourselves. He did such a great job knowing what we wanted in a house that we bought a house sight unseen and couldn't be happier. We did the entire home buying process from out of state and it couldn't have gone smoother. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure we were happy in our new home well after we closed on the house. [Full review on Zillow]
I can summerize my experience with Grady in 3 words: honest, helpful, awesome. Out of all the agents I delt with Grady was the most professional and caring. I was very picky about my home and he was very patient and helpful. His connections in the area make everything easier. He truly enjoys helping people find the perfect home before and after the sale. This man makes me want to buy more houses. Thanks Grady, you rock! [Full review on Zillow]
