Kat Nichols, co-founder of the Lemon Grove Realty Group, has over 10 years of experience in the real estate market. Graduating from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science degree, Kat obtained her real estate license soon after moving to Houston in 2010 and has been a successful, top-producing Realtor® ever since. Kat is best known for her ability to handle stressful situations with a calm and composed disposition. Her devotion to her clients and their well-being allows her to keep their best interests at the forefront of her mind. She prides herself in her honest approach to real estate and is always looking for ways to improve her level of service.
“Purchasing and selling a home can be a very stressful and emotional experience. My job is to stay calm throughout the process, while also achieving the best results for my clients.” But don’t be fooled by her relaxed nature. Kat is always anticipating the next step and is never one to go into a transaction unprepared. It’s no surprise that Kat has built her business on referrals, something she finds to be the best compliment any one of her clients could possibly give her.
Many of Kat’s first clients have gone from renting their first apartment or home, to purchasing their first home, starting families of their own, selling that first home and purchasing their second home with her help. “One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is following my clients through so many stages of life. I get so much joy out of it.”
Since moving to Houston, Kat married her high school sweetheart, Corben Nichols, and they have since started a family of their own. “My daughters have already taught me so much about life. I feel that I’m a better person and Realtor than I was before - more caring, giving and a better listener. Parenthood has shown me the importance of pouring your time, your love and your energy into others. It is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but also the most rewarding.”
As a seller and buyer, you are dependent on your agent to facilitate and execute a smooth transaction through whatever obstacles you may encounter. No Realtor is the same and it is important to find one who not only possesses the needed skill set, but also the integrity and caring nature to make it a successful transaction. Kat is that Realtor.
When Kat isn’t working, you can find her spending quality time with her family and friends in the Oak Forest/Garden Oaks and Heights areas. Catalina Coffee, the shops on 19th St, Graham Park, and Heights Mercantile are just a few of her favorite local spots. She also enjoys running at Memorial Park and the Buffalo Bayou with her husband, daughters and their two dogs, Delilah and Sandy.
