Nellie Downes has enjoyed success as a Licensed Real Estate Professional since 2005 but fell in love with buying property years before obtaining her real estate license. Nellie purchased her first home at age 23 and hasn’t stopped. She has experience buying foreclosures, gut renovation, and selling beautifully renovated homes. Through her personal real estate experiences she gained insight and knowledge which have proven invaluable to her real estate clients.

Excelling in real estate, as evidenced by a stellar track record of sales and quality service, is Nellie’s passion. Whether you are a buyer or seller, when you choose Nellie as your agent you are guaranteed a thorough assessment of your needs and an informative consultation on the process of real estate. Nellie educates her clients on current market conditions and the different neighborhoods in The Villages®. By sharing her vast knowledge of real estate, Nellie ensures her informed clients will be confident in their real estate decisions.

Nellie considers herself a partner more than a Licensed Real Estate Professional. She enjoys facilitating smooth transactions with all parties involved and making herself available to answer questions and discuss options during what can often be a stressful undertaking. Nellie believes, “When you buy, sell, or lease a home, you deserve nothing less than a friend with a genuine concern for your best interests and a unique appreciation of the goals you are seeking to achieve.”

As a native of Long Valley, NJ and ten years as a resident of NYC, Nellie moved to Florida’s Friendliest Hometown when she was awarded the opportunity to work for Properties of The Villages®. Her background in banking, cosmetology, and management contributes to her excellence in business and customer service. During her down time Nellie enjoys horseback riding, Mahjong, theater, her book club, and spending time with her two grandchildren. Nellie is deeply grateful to live and work in a community with so many caring individuals and helping you make your retirement dreams come true is just a bonus!
