Belonging to a group of the top people in their profession serves as a powerful source of inspiration and community for Jan -- bringing a diverse range of buyers, sellers and developers of residential condominium projects.

With regard to her choice to become an owner and partner in Kentwood City Properties, Jan says, "The Kentwood Companies and Kentwood City Properties offer an atmosphere of true professionalism and dedication to the client.

She has called other of Denver's great neighborhoods home, including Hilltop, Belcaro, Park Hill, Washington Park, and Riverfront Park, the newest neighborhood in LoDo, Denver's historic lower downtown. Jan's interior design of her LoDo loft home has been featured in Colorado Homes & Lifestyles magazine.

Jan has been quoted nationally in the press for her expertise on urban living and serves on the Board of Directors of the Denver Film Society. Her innovative ability with new    project development, along with her expertise in high-end Residential and  Condominium sales have catapulted Jan to the forefront of the Denver Real Estate world.


We had a great experience working with Jan in our home purchase. We were relocating from Minneapolis and wanted to be close to downtown. Jan helped us stay close to the market and even with homes selling quickly we were able to find a perfect fit for our needs. We didn't actually move for a few months after we closed on our house and Jan and Molly were great resources for us and responsive to help us in anyway they could during the long transition. The after purchase service and care really meant a lot to us.

Jan Nelsen recently sold my condo in Capitol Hill. It was my first investment, a modest 2 bedroom 2 bathroom. The condo received new flooring and a fresh coat of paint with Jan's help and her amazing contacts. Professional photos and a little buzz created a serious interest in my little Capitol Hill condo. We had over 40 showings!! The condo was sold in three days with 8 offers! I was elated! It was such a fantastic first selling experience. I am so happy with my choice to use Jan as my realtor. Not only is she personable and profession she is behind you 110 percent! The process was so easy for me since I was selling this property from out of state. Jan took care of everything and she was so knowledgeable! Thank you a million Jan!
