Partner of the Month: Elder Resource Group—Senior Transition Specialists, John and Irma Nelson

Former U.S. Marine John Nelson and his wife, Irma, are professional realtors who are dedicated to helping seniors make important transitional decisions. If you or a loved one is looking to sell a home and/or move to assisted living, call the Nelsons at (210)870-7340 for a free consultation.

Even if you’re not a senior but plan on selling your home, The Elder Resource Group can still help you make that transition. John Nelson recently helped our very own Carol Bertsch sell her home. “Getting our home market ready was a challenge,” says Carol, “but John helped us overcome those challenges, and he got it sold.”
