Nikols applies a balance of institutional diligence and entrepreneurial tenacity. Thanks for delivering a great return on what I consider a conservative investment.

I have known Carrie and Don Nikols for over 30 years and have always known them to be diligent, honest, and hard-working. Over the last five years, my mother, wife and I have all invested in their mortgage fund. Recently one of my partnerships became a borrower, and I saw from the other side how they operate. Carrie and Don have created a niche in the market that nobody else addresses. All three Morgenstern's receive their check every month on time and at returns significantly higher than other management free opportunities I have been able to find. Thank you, Carrie and Don.

We are very pleased with the high level of underwriting to mitigate risk.

Pat Scruggs, Senior Vice President, CBRE (retired)

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.

Scott Pollard, Esq.

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.
