Trina Hart Nichols began originating mortgage loans in Missouri in 2003. Since then, she has developed a reputation for competent, conscientious advocacy for homeowners across the state of Missouri and now the great state of California as well. She is consistently in the top 1% of loan officers for the nation’s largest wholesale lender, earning lots of benefits that she can leverage to enable fast, flawless closings for her clients.
In late 2020, Trina set out on her own to launch Nichols & Company with the help of long-time business partner/spouse Mike Nichols in their beloved historic Central West End neighborhood in the city of St. Louis. Today, Mike manages all things that aren’t mortgage origination: the financial, technical, creative, and administrative work that goes on behind the scenes to keep Trina’s team focused and efficient.
In May of 2021, Trina found her right hand and closing coordinator Jacob Mattes. Originally hailing from Chapin, Illinois; Jacob brought his experience from the legal and real estate fields to bear in coordinating all the dates, documents, and stakeholders to create smooth closings and happy clients. Jacob lives in historic Soulard and can often be spotted with office regulars Clark and Kingston the Schnauzers.
My clients, plain and simple, are the secret to my success. Of course it’s important to be able to offer the deep expertise I’ve spent nearly 20 years crafting, but even more impactful to my business are the clients that choose to share me with their friends and loved ones. The word “grateful” just doesn’t seem big enough to describe how I feel every single time that happens.Trina Hart Nichols
