Professional Experience

Ken Nelson is an associate in CBRE’s Milwaukee office, specializing in advising clients throughout the Kenosha and Racine area. Ken is very familiar with the area, as that is where he was born and raised. Most of his family still lives there, so he has visited frequently over the years. Ken will use his local market expertise to advise clients on the opportunities and challenges that come with Foxconn. 

Ken has a nose for deals which he showed early on. In his second year in the business he brokered the then-largest deal in Wisconsin history and followed that up with the leading suburban office building. He quickly determines whether a deal is feasible, and avoids wasting anyone’s time on deals that will never work. 

Ken began his real-estate career as a broker with the James T. Barry Co. in Milwaukee after leaving Peat Marwick Mitchell (now KPMG). Later, he moved into development and became the first franchisee of Residence Inns and the second franchisee of Hampton Inns. He has also developed office properties and a high-rise, mixed-use project that included Ritz-Carlton Residences.
