My Story: From Musical Strings to Real Estate Dreams

The Early Years

Hello! I'm Aaron Nelson, and my story begins in the heartwarming community of San Angelo. Since the age of two, this town has been my home, shaping my early childhood and schooling years. Growing up here, I embraced the local culture and values, setting the stage for the chapters that would follow. I've loved watching how San Angelo has changed after all these years. 


My high school years were filled with the energy and excitement of football and track at Central High School, where I learned the value of teamwork and perseverance. But just before graduation, a new passion quietly entered my life: the guitar. Picking up this instrument for the first time opened a door to a world I hadn't known before. It started as a casual interest but quickly grew into something more meaningful. By 2005, this newfound passion led me to join Brushfire as the lead singer and guitarist. Playing music in bars, at weddings, and various local events went beyond just performing; it became a way of connecting with people and sharing stories through melodies. This musical journey not only paid the bills during my college years but also taught me invaluable lessons in dedication and expression. Although I don't have as much time as I used to, you'll still find me on stage often. Brushfire is nearly 20 years old! 

College Years

My educational journey took me to Angelo State University. Here, I completed my undergraduate degree in Finance and Real Estate and quickly returned to pursue an MBA while also running my real estate business. College was a time of growth and exploration, highlighted by a memorable study abroad program that took me through Spain, Italy, Greece, and Bulgaria – an adventure that included experiencing an earthquake!


Starting a Family

2007 marked a turning point in my life when I met Holly, the love of my life. Our journey together has been blessed with the arrival of two wonderful boys: Paxton in 2016 and Asher in 2019. They have brought a new dimension of joy and purpose to our lives. These days, my free time is filled with going to their games and spending as much time with them as I possibly can. 

Opening Brokerage

I embarked on a new professional path, obtaining my real estate license in 2009. This career has been a rewarding journey, filled with challenges and triumphs.  In 2023, after 14 years with Dierschke & Dierschke Realtors, I took a significant step by opening EXIT Realty Advantage. This new venture is more than a business; it's a commitment to fostering a supportive and successful environment for our Realtors. EXIT Realty is a national franchise with offices all across North America.  The establishment of the Aaron Nelson Group ensures that our clients receive unparalleled service and support from a full team structure. In addition to our team, the brokerage is growing and adding new and experienced agents to help further the mission of helping families realize the dream of homeownership.


Passion for Giving Back

Beyond my professional endeavors, I am deeply committed to giving back to the community. One of my aspirations is to create a financial education program for kids and their parents, believing firmly in the power of knowledge and financial literacy. Contributing to the community that has nurtured me is a way of expressing my gratitude and making a positive impact. I volunteer in various organizations as well, such as the San Angelo Elks Lodge. Our brokerage also holds community events often. 


San Angelo isn't just where I live; it's a part of who I am. From strumming guitar strings to helping families find their dream homes, it's where I've built a life of passion and purpose. I'm here to help you find your place in this wonderful community, just like I did.

“Great guy, nice, reasonable, professional”
