The Nellis Group

James Nellis - CEO

Growing up in a real estate family gave me a good feel for the integrity involved in working with buyers and sellers. I grew up understanding this is a service industry and our clients needs must come first. I bring to the group fresh insight into how technology can enhance our relationship and business. People are one of my passions and we will leave no stone unturned in order to find the right property.


Nicole Nellis-Cockrell - Lead Listing Agent

I grew up in this industry, and this area, and I enjoy serving people. I obtained my degree in Criminal Justice which has made me aware of the importance of safety in showing and selling homes and openend up my analytical and interpersonal skill set. I will work as a personal shopper for you, and will always keep your goals first. Whether you are buying or selling a home, I will work with your goals in mind.



Jim Nellis - Pricing Specialist / Appraiser 

A U.S. Naval Aviator for 20 years, I joined my wife Vicki in the real estate business in 1988 upon retirement. I'm a real estate broker, and operate a separate property management company to manage homes for clients who have left the Washington, D.C. area. I'm also a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser. I perform the analyses for our buyers and sellers before listing or purchasing a home, and look at the process from the bank/lender standpoint to ensure proper pricing.



Keith Cockrell - Marketing Director

As the marketing director for the Nellis Group, it is my goal to provide you with the best marketing strategy that will get your home sold. I received my Masters in Business Administration, and went on to work in the corporate world for several years before joining the Nellis Group. The skills I learned both in my education and corporate experience gives me a unique perspective on Real Estate, marketing, and the industry.



Christopher Comerford - Marketing Specialist

I have been working as a marketing specialist for eight years in both the beer industry and the real estate industry. I have extensive experience with marketing strategy, graphic design, digital media, and social networking. I have also worked for the ATF with some of the top photographers and digital media specialists in the country. I earned my MBA from George Mason University and graduated with a marketing degree from James Madison University.



Michael Rogers - Real Estate Specialist

I went to high school with James and have been a previous client. I was very impressed with the Nellis Group so I teamed up for charity events for a great cause near and dear to my heart - Brain Cancer. When the opportunity came around for me to join the team I was honored. I love taking on challenges, and this comes out strong in both my work as a Realtor and as I run ultra-marathons. I look forward to helping you find the ideal home.



Meg Winkler - Real Estate Specialist

After starting out as a client and then a personal friend of the Nellis family I learned how exciting the field of Real Estate can be. I graduated with a degree in education and I have taught special education for several years. My previous career has taught me a lot about life and has given me an appreciation for helping clients and the community.
