Lela Nichols was fantastic. Her experience and knowledge of the DFW Metroplex allowed me to focus my search into areas that interested me and gave me the neighborhood and area information I desired. The properties she provided gave me a great picture of what was available. Then her contractual skills delivered an accepted contract on the first try in a multiple offer market. I would highly recommend Lela Nichols to anyone relocating to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Lela is amazing! She went out of her way many times to accommodate us, and remained positive and patient through it all. She's such a genuine person with a beautiful heart! You're Appreciated.

My wife and I are both professionals, her a nurse, and I'm a pilot. Recently we realized our dream of building our own home on some land we acquired 45 miles SW of Fort Worth. We engaged Lela Nichols to sell our house in Arlington. From the beginning, Lela set out to put our house out on the market to a targeted group of relocators from outside the DFW area. Her marketing strategies were effective and soon we began to see results in the form of multiple showings. Lela was our second listing agent after a disappointment with another Realtor that wasted the prime selling season from May to August. Lela listed ours starting in August. We had our first serious offer in the last week of September. The real challenge came after the sale and the buyer's agent began to try to change the agreement. Lela and I saw eye to eye on most all the issues that arose, and she guarded our interests like a mother bear guarding her cubs. The result was a deal closed and an extra $500 was put on the table by the buyer for the time and trouble they caused. I highly recommend Mrs. Lela Nichols to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell in this now volatile market. Her knowledge and professionalism proved invaluable during the listing and subsequent contract negotiation. She is a credit to the Realtors' profession.

The complete transaction was handled perfectly.

It was a pleasure to work with Lela. She listened to what we were looking for. She lined up homes that were to our specifications. She was a trooper! We set her all time record of home viewings (22 in a day). She understood that we knew what we were looking for and didn't try to waste our time with maybes. I would recommend her and have already. She is a great asset to your company,

We recently were fortunate to use the services of Lela Nichols to purchase our new home in Arlington. This was the ninth property we have purchased. Of those nine purchases this one ranks near the top at being the easiest and cleanest deal primarily because of Lela. She listened when we described our needs and only showed up properties which matched those needs. All the paperwork was completed meticulously. She was a delight to work with. We would use her services again and highly recommend Lela!

- Carol P.

Lela made our house hunting and home sale an easy experience. She is a joy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. I highly recommend her to all. If we ever decide to move again, Lela will be the first person we call.

- Julie S.

It is our pleasure to nominate you as real estate agent of the year!

- David and Debbie C.

Lela is a very kind person. She has been very patient with me while we were looking for homes. In fact, I enjoyed working with Lela so much that I invited her to my wedding.

- Ray S.

Three words - ABOVE AND BEYOND. Lela Nichols is flat out the best Realtor I've ever worked with. We had some extreme challenges in the process of selling our home (none of which were Lela's fault), and she went completely out of her way to ensure that we could sell our property. I can't say enough good things about her!
