About Courtney Nelson


My clients are first-time home buyers, students, builders, retirees, executives, investors, single parents, young professionals, friends and family. I offer exceptional service at every price point. Real estate is one of the best ways to create personal wealth and remains one of the safest investments one can make. Real estate purchases are typically the largest investments individuals will make in their lifetime. Clients deserve a market expert and true advocate on their side. As your agent, I am committed to helping you throughout your real estate ventures with a no pressure, helpful approach. I am passionate about real estate and committed to our mutual success.


I am so proud to be a native of Colorado and to be back living in this amazing state. I left Colorado to attend San Jose State University in California. I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations and enjoyed a variety of adventures before returning to Colorado. I have had the pleasure of working and living in California, Nevada, and Florida. I have worked in public relations in the Silicon Valley and worked as a fire fighter/EMT for the California Department of Fire Protection.

Business ownership has always interested me so real estate was a perfect opportunity for me. I have been a licensed realtor in California and Colorado. I am in my eleventh year in real estate and am so excited to be with PorchLight Real Estate Group. When I am not working I love gardening, cooking, being a wife and mother of two beautiful children and all things fitness! True to being a Colorado native, I am very passionate about the great outdoors and I enjoy fly fishing, camping, and exploring our wonderful state. My professional real estate designations include GRI (Graduate of Real Estate Institute), CHRE (Certified Home Rescue Expert), CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) as well as ILHMS (Institute of Luxury Home Marketing Specialist).


In April 2006, I received the “Rising Star”Agent of the Month Award by Broker Associate Magazine. Additionally, I was featured on HGTV’s nationally televised show “My House is Worth What?” and provided the real estate expert evaluation of a local home here in the Denver Metro Area. My professional recognition also includes Keller Williams Gold Sales Achievement Award for 2007, Bronze Sales Achievement Award for 2008 and Bronze Sales Achievement Award for 2009, PorchLight $10 Million+ Club for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. I was featured in 5280 Magazine as a FIVE STAR Real Estate Agent in 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. This award is given to fewer than 6% of all licensed real estate agents in the Denver area.

  • "I highly recommend Courtney as an extremely capable and caring Real Estate Broker. She is always well prepared, timely and her communications to us throughout the searching, negotiating, buying and closing processes were truly exceptional. We have worked with other brokers previously and Courtney is among the very best. Courtney did great research on market pricing, competitive offers as well as homes to preview. You will be working with a truly top broker in Courtney."
    Wayne Grider

  • "Courtney is a genuine and professional real estate broker. She communicates effectively to clients and other brokers, which decreases the stress associated with a home sale or purchase. She has built relationships that aid in her and her clients success, and she continually goes above and beyond expectations with her ability, her kindness, and the time she spends brokering deals. With Courtney and PorchLight Real Estate, you will get personalized attention fueled with genuine care for your situation and needs. We needed to sell our house quickly to move to a new state and pursue a dream while maintaining our home life with our small children and Courtney made selling our house the least stressful part of the change! I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling. She is truly one of a kind."
    Ramie Hencmann

  • "We are first time homebuyers who had the pleasure of working with Courtney. From her patience with us throughout our seemingly never-ending search, to our communication challenges last minute with the mortgage company, Courtney fought for us and communicated with us as if we were her only customers. We felt so comfortable with Courtney’s knowledge and expertise that we utilized her help in virtually every step of the process. Part of Courtney’s success with us is her genuine caring nature for her customers. We felt she went above and beyond to get to know us, our interests and our needs, which meant she provided us with home ideas that matched our true interests."
    Tara and Dan Butler

  • "This is a letter of recommendation relative to my experience with Courtney Nelson. In July 2010 my sister passed away from a long time illness. I am her executor. She left directions that she wanted to list her home with Courtney Nelson. I discussed the process with Courtney and from the start I knew my sister made the right choice. Courtney explained the options relating to putting my sisters home on the market. Our situation was not ordinary. I live in Illinois and selling a home in Colorado represented potential problems. These problems did not materialize due to Courtney’s diligent help. I came to Colorado in September to supervise the estate sale. In between my obligations I met with Courtney to finalize her appointment and initiate the listing. The house was put up for sale and sold in about three weeks for 95% of our asking price. I am most pleased with Courtney’s work. She is pleasant, competent, helpful and professional in every way. I recommend her highly."
    Ray Barnett

  • "We purchased a condo for our daughter in Lakewood while she is in graduate school at UC Denver. Courtney Nelson was recommended to us by a mutual friend. We can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had. She questioned us as to exactly what we were looking for and she made the entire transaction smooth and seamless, especially since we are out of state. She is very knowledgeable and was a joy to work with. We have purchased quite a bit of real estate over the years but this was by far the easiest. I would highly recommend Courtney and the PorchLight group."
    Margaret M
    Relocation Buyer

  • "Porch Light helped us fulfill our dreams in selling our house. Courtney is an amazing agent. She helped us find our house in littleton area and then sell it about 7 years later. Courtney has studied the housing area in Colorado as we were looking for homes in the denver area she listened to our needs and wants and placed us in a fabulous neighborhood which we would have never looked at if it wasn't for her expertise. Now i just wish she could move to Sonoma to help us here. Thanks Courtney and Porch Light. Porch light is top notch they sit with you every step of the way in selling and buying a home. The had our home in show ready in just weeks. Plus we had 8 inch snow storm. Thank you thank you thank you."
