History On Greg Nichols and MFN Realty and God's Service

Real Estate Ministry & Kingdom Principles

As I said in the last installment, Debbie and I have a "tent making" business (real estate) to earn a living, but we see ourselves as teachers and ministers for God as our primary vocation.  When I shared that last entry on this subject a week ago, a few people thought we were opening a new ministry. That is incorrect. What is correct is that we have seen ourselves as ministers in our business for decades and began many practices back then to see God's will done in the lives of people that we encounter. I share this to encourage people to take God into their businesses, professions, jobs, and marketplace. When I left real estate for a while in 2008, I took a graveyard shift job taking care of and watching over alcoholics and drug addicts where I was able to direct my calling and anointing into people there; that became my employment and a ministry for a season. I saw God do some mighty things in that tent making position. 

Point of wisdom here:  Whatever you are doing with your life to earn a living, you have a Great Commission from Christ and loving on, serving, and inspiring people anywhere you are is your main vocation. According to Google, a major synonym for the word vocation is the word, "calling." "Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him." Isaiah 43:7  God has called each one of us, and to say that anything else is your calling may not be accurate. You are His son and daughter and servant anywhere you are, 24/7, and oh the joy this will bring you. Then, you may have to step aside for a few hours or 8 hours and make a few tents. Even at that business or job, the outreach you can have is incredible and you will perform that work in a supernatural ability. 

Greg at a book signing


I started real estate in 1977 as a sales agent. I got around some mentors that were decent and high principled people, and I learned much about customer care and service from the heart. I was not even a saved man at the time. I was saved in 1982. I met Debbie in 1984; we married in 1987. I received a real estate brokers license in 1986. We started our own firm in early 1988 after getting married. That company is still here, MFN Realty. I have a testimony and example for you of what I am talking about. In the 1990's, I sold a house for a man of God, a Pastor. He was relocating to Wyoming from Sacramento. He had secured a house by faith in Wyoming on acreage with a meeting building on the property. Was he ever excited! He was going there to set up a rural, local church. He was now out of funds. This man lived in the supernatural and was an ex-biker and was very close to God. On escrow signing day, I met him at the title company. He was signing away his old house, and then moving on with his family to the new dream the next day, a dream that he was sure was from God. I knew it was too. And it was. The escrow lady told us when we arrived that she had some bad news. The escrow could close, but not without my seller bringing her a check for $3,850  that very day. He stated that he had no money. I knew this to be true. He looked over at me. I said, I don't have any money either. It was true. Debbie and I had 7 kids in the house. We were struggling and this was the only escrow or closing we had. 

What a bad turn of events. His mortgage was higher than expected and he had some old liens. In his sinning days, he incurred things that now came back to bite him. With the sale of his house, because records are searched when you sell a house, there was a reckoning at the escrow table. This guy had a buyer waiting to go on this house. He needed to close it. The U-Haul truck was already in his driveway. Did you ever get the feeling that someone was praying and you were their answer? That is exactly how I felt. The man did not ask me for anything. He did not manipulate me. He just went above my head. He had already been to God in faith that all things would work out. Right then, I knew what I had to do. I called Debbie privately and told her the situation and she agreed with me. So, I instructed the escrow lady to deduct $3850 from my commission. It was the biggest offering I had ever given up to that day. The problem was that my commission was only $4150. I was about to have to take home to my wife, who pays the bills and buys the groceries, a $300 check for 2-3 months’ work. Thank God I have a wife of great faith. Both Debbie and I agreed that we did the right thing, and God showed us right away that He would bring me plenty of income to compensate us with multiplying returns. The client comes first. I had worked that way my whole career and was not changing anything now. 

When we go to work, we are working for God, not just the client or some earthly boss, for we serve the Lord Christ. (And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24) I helped this man of God get on his way with God and  God saw it. I very well may be reaping on that action for the rest of my life in business or ministry. I know this is speaking to someone who has struggled to realize your identity as a son or daughter to God and your role in the business world as you work to get ahead with your finances. What I am sharing are principles of God that can lead you to financial rest in your life, with all your needs met, as well as seeing your dreams fulfilled. Sometimes, just having your "calling" identity in Him settled in your own heart can lead you on to great exploits, successes, and victories. "But the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits." Daniel 11:32

If you want an edge on other buyers and wish to call us to inquire, feel free. We will not be calling you repeatedly to get you to view homes. You just ask us when you are ready!

We usually always have about 10-15 homes on this vacant list in some of the areas mentioned above and they are "For Sale Now" and they are fixer homes, some minor and some major fixers!

Be One of the First Buyers at the New Listings!

When we set up your notification service, we have you receiving the new listings like these on the first day that they arrive on the market. Then, you can study the information, and do a drive-by if you want, and then, you call us, and we will quickly get you in to view the home with your own private showing. 

There are a few action steps that you can take if you are having trouble finding a home. We are home finding agents here to help you find that dream home.

After a short discussion about what you are looking for in a home,  we can answer your questions and also give you a great lender referral from our list to help you get pre-approved.

Benefits of Marketing Plus for Sellers 107924606

Call Greg at 916-580-7235 


Greg and Deborah Nichols

How do we get you out of one house and in to another? (Contingency) Very carefully. It is doable but many agents do not like to get involved with it. We have a procedure blueprint that we apply and we have done it before many times. Certain procedural steps are set up in your agreement with your buyer and your seller on each end. We enjoy the challenge of making this happen for our clients. Our goal is for you to have a seamless move.

On this blog entry, we are sharing a menu of exactly what we do, in general. Most firms do not have this list of features. That is why, when you hire us, we perform well and get the job done. Please explore the info we have for sellers and buyers.  

Sellers:  Greg here. I got my early training in real estate by listing homes from the expired list routinely, and selling homes that other agents could not sell.  I then took the secret sauce of techniques and procedures and today those are what I follow and we still have the ability to do things that are difficult to do and it creates a very "over the top" service.  More offers mean higher and better offers. 

Buyers:  Through our vast experience, we have some procedures to help. First of all, we call you back quickly. Then, we set you up to get select houses sent to your email to view photos of them the very first day they hit the market and we are ready to help you get into them to see them very fast. Then, we write your offer in such a way to make it quite competitive and we work very well with the seller's agent to make sure your offer gets a fair viewing by the seller.  Then, on finding you a good deal on a nice home, we use expertise on home searches and we can find you what you want. 

Sellers:  "We use Marketing Plus for Sellers." One technique we use is that we broadened our territory where we look for buyers for your home, and it is not just the Sacramento Valley.  We have ways to notify many of the all cash buyers early in the San Francisco Bay area, about your home and that it is listed with us.  This is an actual exposure we give to our own sellers without any extra charge to our sellers. Most agents rely on the MLS service to sell your home. WE do that too, but so, so much more!

Buyers:  We have a home scoring service. No one else does this service because we created/invented it.  After you purchase a home, in the first 24-48 hours and during your due diligence and contingency period, we run a score on the home showing you that score with a breakdown of why it is what it is. Most houses pass OK, so it does not kill deals, but it does give a buyer more confidence. Our score shows things not covered in the whole house inspection, the pest inspection, and the roof inspection. In fact, since those are a given in most escrows, we focus on other more abstract, but no less important things about the home. We charge you nothing for this score process but you can only get it through us. We do not score our own listings, it is a service for buyers only.

Sellers:  One service that we offer to sellers is from an affiliated firm who does fix up,  light remodels, painting, curb side refreshing, patio, kitchen and bathroom makeovers, and they do this before you list, with no charge up front, no credit checks, and no lending fees. They give you a bid, and if you like it, then you list your home with us, and you sell the home and pay for the work at closing from your equity, and your escrow firm pays them for you. This is a great service, and can help you even get more money when you sell. No job is too small. 

Sellers:   One of our systems we use makes us very effective with luxury homes and the extra oomph and exposure it takes to get the upper end homes sold and the sellers down the road with a check in their hand. 

Buyers:  We have special circumstance homes where you can get a good deal from a seller who must sell. The homes are fairly nice. Some are vacant, some are "as is," some are probate sales, and some are Trustee sales.  

Sellers and Buyers:  We have references and a few of them are at this link< To speak with me, give me a call and we can discuss what's on your mind, answer any questions you have, and if it seems appropriate to both of us, we can set a time for me to come by and see your home.

Business/Ministry Concept and 

Innovations:  Go to PDF!


I am the broker and owner of  MFN Realty in Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin and other parts of Placer & El Dorado Counties. I have listed and sold hundreds of homes over the years that other agents could not sell. I developed a set of processes for listings on getting them sold quickly and seamlessly and for top dollar. I also developed a home scoring system for buyers when in escrow that gives them an extra layer of protection.

I have made some brief videos on my processes in real estate, selling or buying a home and why you should consider us if listing or buying a home.

I am a Christian, a patriot, I am honest, and caring and I pray for my clients.

Quality 3-4 Bedroom 2 Bath Attractive Homes in Roseville & Sacramento CA, 107924606

from Greg Nichols, MFN Realty 

DRE  #00632894


Buyer Programs - Locating Homes for Buyers

You can access my home search website below to insert your parameters.

My name is Greg Nichols, and my real estate specialty is researching the best homes in the suburbs of Sacramento & Roseville or Rocklin, listed by my firm and all the other firms too. Every day, I search all the new listings in these areas which were entered into the Multiple Listing Service the previous day.  I review the listings and note the nicest ones and usually come up with a hotlist of the 6-7 best listings, those having the largest lots, the largest house square footages, and the 4 bedroom 2 or 3 bath homes with 2-3 car garages.

Home searches can be frustrating for buyers and there are questions that buyers have that need to be addressed. The following information may help. 

Possible Down Payment Helps

If you are down payment challenged and need assistance with funds, we have programs and techniques to get you help. One way to go is to negotiate you a credit by the seller of all or part of your closing costs, which we do all the time, and another way is to find you a program (providing you qualify for it) that gets you down payment assistance of your FHA loan down payment. 

Payment and Interest Rate Buydowns

If you are payment and interest rate conscious and are concerned about that, we potentially can set up by negotiation with the seller a credit that gets you a 2-1 Buydown obtaining you a lower fixed loan rate for the first 2 years. This can give you a welcome payment savings monthly or may extend your qualifications a little bit, or at least you might want to raise your own price range once you see how much you can save on the monthly.  

Hotlists of Homes

If you are looking for a 3 or 4 bedroom, 2-3 car garage home on a decent sized lot and at a decent sized square footage of living space, in a specific area, get in touch with me now. We can set up an instant delivery in your email inbox of these types of homes in the area that you are looking. This service costs you nothing, as my firm is paid by the seller. The notifications of new properties will be automatic, so then, all you have to do is call us for a private showing. Our service does not cost you a penny!  We also never hound you to go look at homes or to buy a specific house, it will be you calling us instead of us calling you, most of the time. 


Be One of the First Buyers at the New Listings!

When we set up your notification service, we have you receiving the new listings on the first day that they arrive on the market. Then, you can study the information, and do a drive-by if you want, and then, you call us, and we will quickly get you in to view the home with your own private showing. 

There are a few action steps that you can take if you are having trouble finding a home. We are home finding agents here to help you find that dream home.  

Action Step 1:  Get pre-approved. To  make offers on homes in this era, you must be pre-approved by a mortgage lender. We can refer you one when you follow the next action step.

Action Step 2:  Call us today at 916-580-7235  
After a short discussion about what you are looking for in a home,  we can answer your questions and also give a great lender from our list to help you get pre-approved. 

Action Step 3:  There is no further action except to watch properties roll in to your email inbox from us the first day they go on the market.
