Andrew E. Nelson, Willis Allen Real Estate, San Diego, CALa Jolla, Calif. (February 2018) – Willis Allen Real Estate’s President & CEO, Andrew E. Nelson, has been included in the prestigious San Diego Business Journal’s Book of Lists “500 Most Influential Business Leaders” list for 2018.  The San Diego Business Journal’s lists, which span more than 50 of San Diego’s most important industries, provide rigorously researched data that surpasses other national databases.

“As a subscriber, I’ve used the San Diego Business Journal’s Book of Lists to find and network with other San Diego business owners, and I’m happy to be included in this year’s book,” says Nelson. “Willis Allen is the largest independently owned real estate firm in Southern California, and I couldn’t be prouder to lead this company and the agents, staff and managers that make it so successful.”

Nelson, who grew up in Del Mar and graduated from the University of California, joined Willis Allen as a Realtor in 1977, working for the firm’s namesake. Nelson was named president of the company in 1980 and purchased all of the remaining ownership shares in 1995. Today, Willis Allen boasts six offices and 200 agents who represent an industry best for average sales volume per agent.

Prior to getting into real estate, Nelson served in the U.S. Navy as a flight officer for F-4 Phantoms during the Vietnam conflict. Real estate has always been a passion for Nelson; he still owns the circular home in Mammoth Lakes that he built with the help of friends.
