Mike Nelson is from a small town in eastern South Dakota called Flandreau, where he loved playing baseball and golf growing up. He since moved to Rapid City after graduating high school to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering / Engineering Management at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Mike enlisted in the South Dakota Air National Guard at 17 as a Jet Engine mechanic for the F-16s. Mike served his 6-year enlistment and made it to the rank of Staff Sergeant. 

What the Air Force and Engineering school has taught Mike is that professionalism, integrity, teamwork, and attention to detail are crucial characteristics that lead to success and the greatest service to those around him. He exemplifies this by going above and beyond every challenge and putting other’s needs before his own. 

When Mike is not in the office, he absolutely loves going snowboarding and hiking with his wife and friends, and the Black Hills offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

“One of the greatest joys in life is helping others and being a source of happiness. Real estate is the perfect way to accomplish that, by educating people of the process leading to some of the most important decisions many people make in their lifetime. I am here to help anybody and everybody who has an excitement and interest regarding buying or selling real estate. It is an exciting world with lots of opportunity for us all to explore.” – Mike

What Our Clients Are Saying

“After speaking to another agent who basically wanted me to do all the legwork in finding the right home for us, Andrea was a wonderful change. She put together a list of homes that fit some or all of the criteria for my needs, and took me to see all the homes on the list. We did this several times, and ended up with our new home! I was so pleased that I sent my daughter and her fiance to Andrea!”
