Video Biography

Top Agent Fort Greene Office 2017
Top Agent Boerum Hill Office 2016

Born in Jamaica, West Indies, Wilford Nelson has been creative minded from childhood. As one of three boys, he was known as the artist in the family. Besides being the creative one, he was the oldest and that came with responsibility. Talented throughout high school, he was accepted to The Cooper Union for the advancement of Science and Art, on full scholarship.

After graduating from The Cooper Union, Wilford worked at KCSA, a marketing and PR firm, for two years before opening his own design studio. A small boutique firm, he managed four full-time employees and served as the Art Director/Head of Creative. He handled the day to day operations and served clients such as Warner Bros., MCA Records, The National Urban League, John Wiley and Son, and many more. Along with the ability to manage a team, his leadership qualities and passion for helping people are relentless. He has the ability to evaluate and weigh the pros and cons of any situation, not to mention the mindset to make the best in everything, universally needed in real estate. He has the vision and the ability to convey how a property can be transformed into someone's dream, whether residential or commercial.

After ten years, closing his office in 2007, he was offered a design manager's position at Black Enterprise, a magazine/media firm. It proved to be an amazing place to land because he got a chance to work in so many different mediums. Two TV shows, the website, print magazine, and three national events yearly were only a few of his many responsibilities. He got a chance to experience the production of every aspect of the company, and much to his delight, he had a hand in everything. Wilford also came up with creative taglines and branding that would be carried throughout all the promotions related to the events.

In Wilford's spare time, he can be found all over the five boroughs coaching his daughter's middle school basketball team. This year they won their first all-city championship in the school's history, evidence that Wilford Nelson can lead a team both on and off the court.
