Having moved between Europe and the United States several times, I can offer you strong relocation experience on the national and international level. I am known for my proactive negotiating and transaction management skills. Prior to starting my career as a real estate professional, I gained over 20 years of marketing & advertising experience leading international campaigns. Having been a marketing manager, I understand the importance of customer service and marketing strategy.  

Staying current in today’s market is very important and that is why I have earned the designations of Real Estate Negotiation Expert, Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource, Accredited Luxury Home Specialist and Relocation Specialist. 

Born and raised in Germany (native speaker), I have lived in New York City and Philadelphia prior to making Tucson my home. I am a huge outdoor enthusiast and have traveled around the world including a trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. I love the Tucson weather; it’s just perfect for those who love the outdoors. The area is rich with culture, with so much to do and see.

If you are interested in making Tucson your home or would like to sell your property, give me a call and let us kick off a successful venture together!

I look forward to providing you with a real estate experience that exceeds your expectations.

"It is our pleasure to recommend Cornelia Nestler for anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home. Cornelia helped us buy our dream house and helped us sell that same house, 5 years later, when we had to relocate due to work. When we started looking for a house 5 years ago, we did not know what we wanted. Cornelia was patient with us and worked with us to help us articulate what it is we were looking for. Her attitude was “Let us figure out what you are looking for, together” as opposed to, “Tell me what you want and I will show you the listings”. That really helped us find our gem of a house. The house was a short sale and needed some finesse during negotiations and Cornelia was up to the challenge. Cornelia’s honest opinions re: value of the house and the work that will be needed really helped us finally get the house at a price point that we were very comfortable with."

"As a Real Estate Investor working with a skilled agent is crucial for the success of my business. I have worked with Cornelia Nestler repeatedly over the past decade and despite having been approached by many other agents always decide to work with her on sales and purchases. Cornelia is a skilled negotiator and has secured properties often at a significant discount to comparable objects. Cornelia is always available and responsive. She will diligently coordinate and attend inspections and guide through the process of requesting adjustments to the contract, be it repairs to be done by the seller or credits for disapproved items. Through the years of working together, we also completed some more complex transactions such as a seller carry-back and a 1031 Exchange. Cornelia was always on top of the situation and had the experts available to advise and support in these proceedings. I am looking forward to my next transactions with Cornelia and can recommend her without hesitation."

"Cornelia helped me almost 10 years ago to purchase an investment townhome in Tucson. I did not hesitate to call her again when I needed to sell it, during a tough year in real estate. Well Cornelia did an amazing job; we got the home sold in 3 days for top price and it closed in 3 weeks. I have referred her several times in the past and she is hard working, dedicated and knowledgeable about Tucson market. Make sure you call her first whether buying or selling."

"Cornelia Nestler helped us to purchase a home a couple of years ago. Because of the great experience and her outstanding work, we chose to work with her again when we had to sell the property due to a job transfer. She gave us excellent advice on what we needed to do to prepare the house for sale to get the highest price possible. She was available around the clock and goes above and beyond of what a typical real estate agent does; making sure that all T’s are crossed, and all I’s are dotted. We trusted her completely and even asked for her advice when we purchased in another state, where she helped us find a local agent and supported us through that purchase as well. Cornelia is very patient and her communication with us was exemplary. We would always choose her again to represent us."
