While searching for our first home, we couldn't have asked for a better REALTOR to suit our needs. Darla was always two steps ahead and ready to help at a moments notice. She invested so much time in us and was committed to finding us our home. Darla treated us like family and was very encouraging during the entire home buying experience. We cannot thank her enough! We definitely recommend Darla and look forward to working with her again in the future. 

Ashley & Tyler, First Time HomeBuyers

As a first-time homebuyer in a new city, I had some worries going into the process.  I wondered which areas were safe, and where I could find the best house at a price point that worked for me.  After speaking with Darla, I realized just how much she knew about the city and its real estate market.  She was kind and patient with me while I focused my criteria, and sent only listings which matched what I was looking for, saving time and undue stress. 

In buying real estate, there are several moving parts involved in the transaction, Darla flawlessly kept everything balanced and moving forward, all the while remaining genuine and transparent throughout the process. I was pleased to work with a professional who was focused on helping me make the best decision.  I will definitely continue investing in real estate with Darla on my team!

Mark D., First Time HomeBuyer

Thank you doesn't begin to express the gratitude we have for Darla's one of a kind service. From the time we met Darla, she made us feel like family. She continued to always go above and beyond. Helping us with two relocations--moving to Tennessee and then out of Tennessee--Darla never wavered in her commitment to making the process as easy on us as she possibly could. On our move out of the area, Darla coordinated repairs needed from the home inspection which were necessary for an expeditious closing. We were already relocated at that time and she GOT R DONE!!!  We are eternally grateful for her being part of our life. Darla exemplifies southern hospitality. She is a true ambassador for it because she is real, quite frankly, as real as it gets.  Thank you, Darla for everything ... but especially for being such a real, genuine southern sweetheart and shrewd REALTOR.

Oh, by the way, Darla knows the real estate business inside and out; she will get your deal done.

Anyone looking for a real estate agent need not look any further than Darla Nickens Hunley. Darla is a real "go-getter", a bundle of energy! She is the epitomy of professionalism. She will take you under her wing like family and won't give up until you are 100% satisfied. Our family had obstacles to overcome in buying our new home and Darla never gave up on us. She was such a blessing in this experience. Her positivity and professional experience saw us through! We are now proud new homeowners and our family couldn't be happier! Whether you are buying or selling, Darla should be your Realtor!!

Tonya & Tracy

I'll be the first to admit ... I'm high maintenance. On top of that, I had to move out of state before my house sold. Darla was amazing! She took extremely good care of me and gave me the end result I was looking for...a SOLD sign in my front yard!!


We will recommend Darla to all of our friends and family for their Real Estate needs. She is dedicated, loyal and a great person all around. We have known Darla for several years and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Tennessee!!! If you need an agent who is committed to you and very knowledgeable, then you need Darla!! Don't wait, call her now.

I met Darla through a marketing call I made in regards to up & coming events at the symphony, immediately she made me feel comfortable & at ease, no pretentious phony behavior from this girl! I thought I'd take a chance & mention that I was interested in buying a home for the first time & we were off & running. The whole experience with Darla was informative & fun at the same time.She makes you feel as if you are dealing with an old friend & indeed in a very short time that is what she becomes to you, only most friends won't work as hard as she has for me. It's in her character makeup to be this way--for everyone she helps.I absolutely tell people about her & will continue to tell my friends & business associates of the wonderful experience I had working with her.


We want to thank you for all of your hard work, patience, and excellent advice given to us when buying our new home in Middle TN.  You always made time for us. Because we had to sell our home in another state, this was not the easiest transaction. Your guidance, suggestions, and hard work made our dream of homeownership a reality! We knew your reputation of an honest, hardworking, real estate agent before we contacted you ... you were all that and so much more! We now consideryou our friend. Again, heartfelt thanks for your dedication to us and we look forward to working with you again.

Dennis and Kara

I chose Darla because within the first 15 minutes of meeting her I could tell she fully understood my situation and highly impressed me with her knowledge and experence. My past experience with realtors had been they appear to care about your needs but once the documenation was signed things seem to fall apart. I was drawn to Darla's positive, outgoing, comforting personality from our first meeting and those qualities I saw in her have only grown stronger while working with her. Darla, has maintained very close contact with me through the listing and attempt to sell my home which gave me comfort in knowing at all times where we were in the process, what it meant and our progression. I will use Darla in the future for all of my real estate needs and will recommend her to anyone I know that is looking for an amazing realtor and all around outstanding person. I have purchased and sold 5 homes in the past and have never been as pleased with a realtor as I have been with Darla. This amazing lady will not only impress you with her professional knowledge, her ability to handle all your real estate needs, she will become a dear friend in the process.


We interviewed a few different, luxury real estate agents and felt very comfortable with Darla Nickens Hunley. We loved the knowledge and professionalism she offered. We listed our home on a Friday and by Sunday, we had our first showing with a great offer shortly thereafter. The For Sale sign hadn´t even hardly been hammered into the ground and our buyers were already planning their home inspection. We know it was Darla's in depth marketing plan that gave us the exposure we needed to find the perfect buyer. I´d recommend Darla Nickens Hunley to anyone looking to sell their home. Darla was so responsive to all of our questions replying to our texts, voicemails and emails even on weekends and nights. Darla is a class act – all around and so glad to call her our friend!

Kristine and Kevin

Thank you for making this possible! We gained MAJOR & IMMEDIATE exposure on our listing with your marketing plan. We sold our house within 1 month - in a very questionable market. No question - we´d do it all again with Darla in a heartbeat! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Angela and David D.

Dear Darla Nickens,

Hi. Well the dust is starting to settle and we’re still unpacking, but we had to take the time out to drop you a line to say thank you! If it weren’t for you, we would not be writing to you from our own home. Thank you! You were the only real estate agent who took us seriously when we wanted to buy a home. Not only that, but you listened to what we wanted and didn’t wait; you went right to work finding us not one, but many that fit our requirements. You showed us the ones we wanted to see and then sat back and left the decision up to us. No pressure. It was great! It took a lot less time than we had anticipated.

Darla:  Thanks so much for all your help on my home search. You were very receptive to my needs and budget, I know the new condo will be perfect for me. Although I’ve always dreamed of owning my own home, I wasn’t sure it would ever be possible and it is!  What a wonderful feeling.

Thanks again, and you can definitely count on my referral -- if anybody asks me, your name and contact information will always be given!

Joyce A.

Darla:  I want to formally thank-you for helping market my client’s property in Hendersonville, TN. It was a lucky day when I was given your name as a referral.

Your enthusiasm and diligence in handling this matter were beyond the call of duty and your professionalism was exemplary. I have been practicing real estate for 30+ years and there are few occasions when a client has received the quality of service which you provided.

Thank-you for all your efforts and I certainly look forward to working together again soon! Moreover, I will have no qualms whatsoever in recommending any clients I have in your area to use you when the occasion arises. Best of luck for many years of success.

To Whom It May Concern,

The service and personal attention we received from Darla Nickens Hunley, was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! She is truly the best and has assembled a high-calibre team. Darla's knowledge of the local market and her key contacts in the community helped us in our search for the perfect, dream home. After patiently going through listings and explaining tax details with us, Darla made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for our new one!

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Darla Nickens Hunley to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through this tedious process.

Darla helped us buy and sell our first home. Professional, personable, honest, accessible, efficient, and steps ahead, helping us stay proactive in our first time through the process. Her experience, expertise, marketing savvy saved us a tremendous amount of time and trouble in what can be a somewhat chaotic, stressful process. As a busy professional, this was key in choosing her twice as my agent. She is a true advocate for her clients who will go the extra mile for them. What's more? She was like family in such an important time of our lives. I would recommend her to anyone needing help with real estate in the area.

I have worked with Darla (and her mother - Darla is a second-generation real-estate professional). She knows her business. She has the contemporary tools to get the job done. She has contacts! She is responsive! I HIGHLY recommend Darla to anyone who needs a real-estate professional!

Mark F.

Darla is from this area in Nashville, and stays in tune with the local real estate trends and available properties. Her heart is for helping people find the right house to become a home. She's very knowledgeable regarding the behind the scenes details of buying and selling a home and makes the experience as "stress free" as possible during what CAN be a very stressful time. We have bought and sold 2 properties with Darla and she has been able to show us so many properties, walk us and talk us through multiple scenerios and help us understand each step of the process so it's completely clear what to expect. She went above and beyond on several occasions during one of our moves to help me remove some items that were left behind by a previous owner in one of the homes. She even helped with organizing the movers as I was out of town on moving day! That was AFTER the sale was complete so she clearly didn't have to do that!! She is a dedicated business woman who would move heaven and earth to help her clients without pressuring anyone into a decision. I highly recommend Darla if you are thinking of listing your home for sale, or buying a home for you and your family in the Nashville area. She is the consummate professional among her peers, with incredible communication and negotiation skills and responds in a reasonably timely manner and gives EVERY client her undivided attention.

Carolyn W.

We are so lucky to have met Darla. She is the absolute best. We have used Darla Nickens for the selling/buying of 3 different homes now and wouldn't consider using anyone else. She is so thorough, and caring and very patient.

Scott W.

Darla is a great agent and is extremely knowledgeable of the middle Tennessee area. Will definitely continue working with her on all future endeavors!

Evan H.

Darla is a fantastic agent. So fantastic in fact that I utilized her services to both buy and sell my home. She is personable, professional and charismatic. What amazed me most about Darla was her keen ability to make things happen. She was able to quickly find me a perfect home in a very competitive market. When I was forced to move out of state two years later for my job, she sold my home (at the asking price) in a day! The equity was great but nothing compared to the personalized experience that she was able to create for me each time I worked with her. Darla is also extremely well networked. Every time I had a need she had a way to produce a solution through her vast network of industry professionals. I cannot say enough about how pleased I was with her level of commitment to her craft and my wellbeing. I would recommend Darla to anyone seeking a truly great agent.

Andy A.

Darla is trustworthy, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped me find my dream home in a very competitive market. She also sold my other home with a full price offer and closed on it within a week. She always answers the phone and will go above and beyond to make sure you are aware of what is happening during your transaction. I would never work with anyone else. If you are looking for a home in the Nashville area, call Darla.
