Nicole Causey
Everhome Real Estate
About Nicole

Real estate isn’t about sales, it’s about service, and award-winning agent Nicole Causey delivers it in spades. Her ethics, integrity, accessibility, and communication have made her a sought-after professional whose clients eagerly enlist her services again and again. Canadian-born but Bay Area-raised, Nicole’s family moved to Fremont when she was 10 years old. While earning her B.A. in Business Administration, Nicole worked in retail, and after graduation, she was promoted to Business Account Manager. She excelled in that position until a serendipitous meeting with a friend led to a job interview with a local top-producing agent. The interview turned into a position that taught her the ins-and-outs of prospecting, marketing, and negotiating. It was a fantastic experience that enabled Nicole to personally manage over 200 home sales — and gain quite the real estate education! With her well-honed customer service skills and newly acquired real estate experience, she obtained her license in 2004, and has been a full-time agent ever since. In addition to her professional background, Nicole’s strong work ethic, self-challenging nature, and intrinsic motivation have made her a highly successful agent. That success has earned her recognition as a Pinnacle Agent with the Bay East Association of Realtors® every year since 2011 and the No. 2 spot out of 34,000 agents nationwide at her previous brokerage. To Nicole, the awards are a byproduct of her true passion — enriching her clients’ lives through homeownership. Nicole’s hobbies include traveling, reading, renovations, interior design, wine tasting, and spending time with her family. She also loves animals and has a menagerie, including a dog, two cats, and backyard chickens. She is on the Board of Directors for SAVE, which assists domestic violence victims in the Tri-City area, and she volunteers for Adopt an Angel, which provides holiday gifts for children in protective services and foster care in the East Bay.
