Lori Nickels - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I met Lori through a family friend, and I am very grateful that I did.

I was looking for an apartment or condo, on a very limited budget, and with little knowledge of the city. Lori kept in constant communication with me during the process. The most helpful thing was her complete honesty about what was realistic and what I should settle for and what not to settle for. At the same time, she was willing to do whatever it took to find me the right spot. After she found me a place, she followed up to make sure I was happy with it. She is extremely caring and hard working and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Lori helped me and my husband sell our home quickly and was willing to work tirelessly to help the process and transactions move forward and close on our home as quickly as possible.

Her knowledge and experience are beyond measure and I’m so grateful to have had her help through a very difficult situation, as we had to sell quickly due to personal issues of health. I highly recommend Lori for any and all of your real estate needs. Lori is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and very responsive (unlike many agents out there) she truly cares about the people she works with, always responds quickly to any calls, emails, etc., and will go way above and beyond what, in my experience, any other agent would to help you achieve your goals no matter the situation. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you Lori for everything you did for me and my family in selling our home.

Lori has been helping us for the last two years in searching for both rental properties and a possible home to purchase.

She is always very responsive and adaptable. We have changed our minds on several issues during our property searches and Lori is always extremely professional, patient, and kind while working through these recurring changes. We will continue using her and recommending her moving forward.

We love Lori Nickels!

My husband and I met Lori in 2015. We weren’t working directly with a realtor because we didn’t think it was necessary. We were wrong! The Austin housing market is so competitive! Lori took the time to get to know us and our tastes. We had several non-negotiables and Lori didn’t bat an eye at them. Lori worked on our behalf to negotiate a 2-year lease vs. the owner’s desire of a one year lease. Lori is a true professional, always kept in contact with, and worked relentlessly to find us the perfect house. She has put in the effort to cultivate a relationship with us, and she will be without a doubt the one we call when we’re ready to purchase our first home (We will be closing on our first home with Lori at the end of 2017!)

It is hard to express how wonderful it was to have Lori looking out for my daughter in purchasing her first house.

She was professional, caring and really goes the extra mile. Thank you!

Ed Vinette

Lori is a fantastic realtor.

She is genuine, caring and personally invested in her work. She helped us with staging, taking high quality photographs, and selling our home quickly for an excellent price. We really appreciated how available she was throughout the process, and her thoughtful expertise. We feel lucky to have worked with her.

Dana Zenobi

Over the past ten years in Austin, I have utilized the services of a handful of realtors.

My experiences (2 now) with Lori were by far the smoothest and most personal of those. Due to certain circumstances, I needed to find an apartment in a relatively short time-frame and had a very specific set of criteria in mind. Lori was very receptive to my needs and was genuinely concerned with finding a unit that best fit what I wanted. I was constantly supplied with potential candidates and Lori made sure to quickly tailor those based on my feedback. She is dedicated professional, and earnest. I would recommend Lori in a heartbeat to anyone in need of a realtor.

Lori assisted me with selling my home in Southeast Austin.

She did an amazing job with presentation of my home -- including amazing photos, great wording that described all the amenities -- and she held an open house on the first weekend my home was on the market. Because of her dedication, I received multiple offers and sold my home for thousands over asking. If you are looking for someone to assist you with buying or selling a home, please reach out to Lori. She is very kind and will do her best with any of your real estate needs.

After finishing school, I returned to my hometown of Austin in search of a great apartment.

I wasn't sure where to start so I began asking friends and family for a reference. Lori's name popped up so I gave her a call and heard back within the hour. I knew I was in good hands as soon as we had a conversation about what I was looking for, where I wanted to be, and how much I wanted to pay. Lori's cheerful attitude, superb listening skills, and real estate expertise made the apartment search easy and enjoyable. Best of all, I found the perfect place to call my home and feel confident that I made the right choice. I can't thank Lori enough for her guidance and friendship, and look forward to the home search in Austin next year! And I've already referred her to my sister!

My fiancé and I met Lori in April 2015 when she helped us transition to Austin from the Northeast.

We met with several different agents, but ultimately decided to go with Lori because she was responsive, informative, and asked the right questions to understand our specific needs. Lori made it a priority to meet with us whenever we were in town. We landed a South Austin home as a result of Lori suggesting we submit a letter with our offer to separate us from other offers. When there was an issue about the lease start date, she fought for us to keep the lease as originally agreed upon. I cannot thank Lori enough for being so attentive to us and incredibly insightful about the various Austin neighborhoods. We continue to keep in touch with her and look forward to working with her again! (2017 - We just closed on our first home with Lori!)

Michelle Camp

Lori is the best real estate professional I've ever worked with, and I have worked with many.

She is kind, honest, and knows her stuff. My favorite thing about Lori is, not only did she selflessly place me in the best place for me, she checked up and made SURE it was the best place for me after her work was done. I highly recommend Lori in all aspects.

Ed Vinette

Lori helped us find a rental house and if you know how competitive the market is it can be quite challenging.

Lori was just awesome navigating all those challenges. We would highly recommend Lori for all your house hunting needs.

Tammy Lee

We just sold our Austin, Texas condo using Lori Nickels.

We just wanted to say that Lori was a wealth of information and was an absolute joy to work with. She kept us informed throughout and made the entire process for us stress free. I never had such a nice experience in selling or buying a piece of property. You can bet we will be promoting Lori to all our friends and relatives in the area.

Duke and Karen Herrera

My fiancé and I met Lori back in April 2015 when she helped us transition to Austin from the Northeast.

We met with several different agents, but ultimately decided to go with Lori because she was so engaging and asked the right questions to understand our specific wants and needs. Lori was responsive throughout the process and made it a priority to meet with us whenever we were in town (over a two-month period of looking). She communicated clearly and always made sure to connect by phone, email or text to let us know when there were any updates. To make things easier for us out-of-towners, she even drove us around in her car! When we landed on a rental in South Austin, Lori favorably positioned us with the property management company by suggesting we submit a supporting letter to separate us from the other interested parties (great idea!). Then when we got bullied about starting the lease two weeks early or losing out altogether, she fought for us to keep the lease as originally agreed upon. Fast forward a couple of years and Lori helped us buy our first home too! I cannot thank Lori enough for being so attentive to us and incredibly insightful about the various Austin neighborhoods. We continue to keep in touch with Lori and look forward to working with her again!

Lori went well beyond what was expected in helping us look for the perfect house.

Knowledgeable and extremely helpful, Lori is one of the best agents we have had the pleasure of working with.

Lori helped me buy my first home when I moved from Virginia to Austin.

She worked with me months in advance to help me get financing and get to know exactly what I was looking for. She also helped me negotiate with the builders, and even got them to include a new refrigerator! She has lived in Austin for many years and understands the city well. She is also very sweet and a pleasure to work with!
