Jill Nelson

Contact Jill


Jill has aligned her personal and business interests where her passions coincide. She’s a licensed real estate agent with professional experience in financial services, oil and gas, commercial real estate investment and residential renovation. This executive-level view brings her to Coton House with a holistic and enthusiastic approach. Most recently, the electrical industry has taken her all over the world, but Houston is where she calls home. From drilling rigs to jobsites, Jill isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and get to work.

“Sometimes the industry chooses you . .. and you start to notice what makes your eyes light up”, Jill said when asked why she joined Coton House (CH). And where can you get a better customer testimonial? Jill has been a personal client of Laurie Coton (CH broker) for 8 years. She believes in the synergistic approach CH blends with real estate, design and remodeling.

As a former global director of marketing, her level of business acumen makes it a natural fit to understand corporate and executive expectations. Working to earn trust, provide superior service and respect clients’ time are qualities Jill considers most important. A Bachelors degree in Business Marketing from Texas A & M University and an MBA in Finance from the University of St. Thomas complete the portfolio of education and experience she offers.

Whether you are looking to invest, find a location for your growing business or a place to call home, you’ll define her work ethic and personal accountability among her greatest strengths.

But don’t let the business side fool you — her quick wit and charm will warm any room. She’s a country girl at heart from Aggieland and loves being outdoors where she has taken up the challenge of golf. She has a soft heart for dogs and after the loss of her 12 year old Lab, “Marley & Me” rescued each other. (Marley is a 6-year old Golden Retriever. )
