Nelson Brothers: Our goal is to enhance
the lives of students and the elderly


Nelson Brothers was founded in 2007 with the goal of providing brick-and-mortar investment opportunities that can potentially offer a unique balance of stable performance, monthly income, tax efficiency, appreciation and diversification – all from one investment.  The company now manages over $750 million in assets with the acquisition of 35 student housing properties and three assisted living properties across 14 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, Nelson Brothers Property Management Inc. and Nelson Brothers Construction Management, LLC.


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 $750 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.
