With more than 25 years of commercial real estate brokerage experience, Steve Nelson is widely recognized as a leading retail expert in the LA North marketplace. Supported by a national platform, he’s committed to providing growing retailers comprehensive site selection services by finding great locations, strategizing lease negotiations and providing relevant lease comparables that can drive best economics for his clients. Steve works closely with brokerage leaders at CBRE and can assemble a “go to” team of retail colleagues in major cities throughout the country for clients having an appetite to cross state lines.

A large portion of Steve’s focus has been the sales and leasing of adaptive re-use historic buildings and being instrumental in revitalizing Old Pasadena by helping navigate its tenant mix. He represents property owners who typically desire to have trend setting urban retailers in their high-street retail buildings. As an example, Steve brought Anthropologie to South Lake Avenue, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion to the Playhouse District, BJ's Restaurant to the Civic Center, and Urban Outfitters, The Container Store, and Patagonia to Old Pasadena.
