Lolo Nelson Real Estate Specialist
I was born and raised in a small town quite similar to McCall in many ways. However, my home town is located in the French Alps. I enjoyed a wonderful mountain upbringing with my family, and upon completion of my secondary education I chose to take a “gap year” before attending the University in Chambery, where I was accepted as an Arts, Letters and Languages student. My choice of location for this gap year turned out to be a life-changing decision. I journeyed to beautiful Incline Village on the shore of Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where I held the position of au pair. My Tahoe stay was fateful, as that is where I met my husband, paving the way for my new life in America. I became a US citizen in 2001, and it is one of my most proud accomplishments. I am so grateful for the opportunities this country has given me.
My next career move was working for American Airlines for 10 years as an International/Purser Flight Attendant based in Chicago, Boston and New York. My fluency in French, Italian, and Spanish qualified me for this exciting position, which also allowed me to see my family in France quite often. While I enjoyed the challenges and excitement of my globe-trotting days with the airline, there came a time when my husband and I longed to put down roots in the mountains once again.
As full-time residents of beautiful McCall since 1999, we love living in what is, for us, a perfect community. This truly is an ideal location for year round outdoor enthusiasts! My favorite activities are: skiing, biking, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), tennis, lake surfing, and occasional bad golf! Whatever your interests may be, you will find an outlet for them here.
I began my Real Estate career in the McCall area in 2005, as a sales associate with the Crawford Company. After a year I accepted a full time position on the real estate force with “Whitetail Club, A Club for All Seasons”, where I further honed my sales skills for 5 years. In 2011 I decided to venture into the wider Valley County real estate market, which gives me the flexibility to take advantage of all that McCall has to offer.
My business model is to represent all my clients with the same level of passion, enthusiasm, and professionalism no matter the price point. My attention to detail, and willingness to treat my buyers and sellers like family have created lasting relationships while assisting them in finding their own version of perfection in beautiful Idaho.
