  • James helped me buy a home

      James has been a delight to work with. He is an outstanding agent all around. He is very professional and yet personable. He fully understands all aspects of real estate and the needs of his clients. I highly recommend James Nellis to anyone who is looking to find an agent who is honest, reliable and dependable.

    • James listed and sold my home

        I cannot say enough good things about James Nellis and the Nellis group in Fairfax, VA. We had a rental property that was destroyed by the last tenants and it took a great deal of work to bring it up to be a marketable house. This group provided us with a great agent and a good deal of handholding as we walked through the process. With their expert advice, we brought this home not only up to a marketable condition, but we got top dollar for the property. We then referred not 1 but 2 close friends to this group for selling their homes and purchasing others. Two more families were very happy with the Nellis group. Again, this office handheld these two new clients through the process. I wish everyone would listen to me when I want to refer others to this group. Thank you to, James, your right-hand girl, Shari, and everyone else in your organization. It starts at the top and you have built a tremendous team of caring folks who genuinely want to help others achieve their goals

      • James helped me buy a home

          I bought my first house with the Nellis Group and James' negotiating skills are unmatched! As an active duty Marine we were time crunched to get into housing as soon as possible. Our first realtor had written 4 contracts for us and all of them were passed over for other buyers. We were referred to James as a top pro and had our first offer he wrote accepted! The best part was we went in under list with closing cost help from the seller. He also had a network of lenders that covered almost our entire VA funding fee. I highly recommend the Nellis Group and send all of my Military brothers and sisters to him for Real Estate assistance.

        • Very impressed by the Nellis Group team. They went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. We brought them onboard after we had to fire a lousy realtor. They immediately got to work and sold our home in a matter of weeks, for much more than we expected. Highly recommended!

        • The Nellis Group are so helpful and knowledgable about real estate. They are quick to respond and trustworthy! My first experience with the Nellis Group was in 2002 when I was living out of state and trying to buy a condo in the northern Virginia area. I had a small window of time before my new job started and the quick turnaround they did was amazing. I also sold and bought from them in 2005 to move into a townhouse and then they helped me find my forever home in 2011. They were awesome!

        • James and Heban provided 5 star service from start to finish. They knew the neighborhood, heard out all our questions and concerned and kept us informed and confident throughout the process. Their team is outstanding. Lisa guided us in staging our house beautifully. Chris is a talented photographer who showed off our condo, our building and our neighborhood to best advantage. Our home sold within days at a price that we were very happy with. We recommend them with enthusiasm.
