Built on Relationships
The Nikols Company was built on relationships. Our success correlates directly with that of our investors and borrowers. We service a community of highly influential investors and real estate leaders with a distinctive brand of personal service and market expertise.
In my company’s 30-plus-years, I’ve engaged a wide range of entrepreneurial and institutional partners. In my view, you apply a balance of institutional diligence and entrepreneurial tenacity. Thanks for delivering a great return on what I consider a conservative investment.

We are very pleased with the high level of underwriting to mitigate risk in a difficult economy. Your returns exceeded our expectations. Thank you for being a silver lining in a challenging environment.

Don, your mortgage fund was a great investment. Thanks for taking care of my money…You guys have been great! Everything worked out just as you outlined. I only wish I had $1.5 million to invest with you.

My decision to invest in the Nikols Mortgage Fund, LLC resulted from my investigations into a number of such firms. As a retired CFO of a regional real estate operation I appreciate the scope of experience brought to the table by the Nikols principals. Having known Carrie and Don personally gave me the confidence I needed in the integrity of the management. Character counts. Trust is a critical part of my decision to invest in a private fund.
— Jeff Welles, CPA
My experiences in development, financial and legal aspects of the real estate industry enable me to appreciate the way Carrie and Don Nikols approach an investment opportunity. My decision to invest in the Nikols Mortgage Fund, LLC grew out of my own experiences as a private lender and my confidence in the capabilities and character of The Nikols Company principals.

Your construction loan enabled us to take advantage of a tract-lender REO purchase at pennies on the dollar. Your flexibility to extend the loan terms and include the final phase 3 completed our 19-home community effortlessly. Thank you for taking the time to understand this opportunity and move forward in an environment where almost no one would listen to our story.
— Traci Cline, Principal, Jade Homes, Inc.
Most borrowers focus on loan costs and proceeds as the most significant decision making criteria. Working with Nikols has reinforced that it’s the intangibles that separate good lenders from great lenders through a highly responsive orientation to our ideas for the business and our loan facility. You have allowed us to innovate in ways few competitors can. With Nikols, we have found both a great lender and an outstanding partner.

In my 35 years practicing real estate law, I have represented lenders, borrowers and developers large and small. The cumulative experience in Carrie and Don Nikols makes for a unique and potent team. They are knowledgeable, entrepreneurial and decisive.

When a client brought me the request for 100% of cost financing to purchase and develop the land for a Chili’s restaurant in Barstow, I made one phone-call to The Nikols Company. As a career mortgage banker I knew that there was no institutional capital source for that deal. Nikols’ ability to deal with the changes in the lease negotiation and site engineering specifications resulted in a $2,161,000 closed loan that started as a $1,350,000 loan request.
