About Kirsten Nelson

Kirsten has over 10 years of experience in the mortgage industry. He began his tenure on Wall St at the age of 22 where he became the youngest licensed Series 7 & 63 Investment Banker in his firm. At the age of 24 and seeing a tremendous opportunity with interest rates, he co-founded a mortgage company. It transformed into a Lending Tree, top-100 mortgage bank, with over 40+ branches throughout the country. This success has enabled him to grow as a mortgage expert and understand the many facets of the business. He uses his domain expertise to get "tough deals" done, creating a seamless loan application process for his clients along the way. Additionally, Kirsten compliments his mortgage expertise with 7 years of experience in finance and real estate where again, he was a top producer at the #1 real estate company in the financial district of NYC.

With an eye toward sustainability and a passion for positive impact, Kirsten coalesced real estate, finance, and green energy by working as a financial analyst and project manager for a green energy company in NYC. Kirsten facilitated energy efficiency adoption for commercial real estate buildings throughout NYC by enabling sector optimization through the effective use of tax credits.

Ultimately Kirsten loves and takes pride in what he does, whether he is helping people buy their 1st home or save money on a refinance.
