I would be glad to provide this Letter of Recommendation. I have always found the work of your company to be of the highest level of accuracy and to be easy to schedule all of my projects, which have been numerous. As the owner of over 2700 acres of land and several of those properties being lake view developments, your team of surveyors have always been up to the task to help move my projects along in a timely manner, not only in the field but just as importantly, with the Township and County Zoning Departments. I certainly would recommend Nelson Surveying Inc to any of my friends or business associates.

JACK A. CARLSON: Spears Carlson & Coleman Washburn, WI

My companies and I have been working with Nelson Surveying Inc (NSI) for over 40 years in Northwestern WI. This includes three generations of Nelsons. I have done legal and development work in MN, WI, FL, AZ, and the USVI over the years. NSI stacks up well in competence with much larger surveying groups that I have worked with. Plus, they know the territory and have good working relationships with local governmental agencies within their working area - which has proven to be a valuable resource. I highly recommend NSI to anyone who is in need of surveying work.
