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.

Brad Gill
NextHome Lifestyles
About Brad

What better way to describe yourself than words from a previous client...this testimonial was written by a client I assisted recently with the sale of their home. "Brad did a fabulous job for me in preparing the house, pricing, and marketing. We had 160 groups come thru the open houses held over 2 weekends and we got multiple offers ending in getting 12 percent over the asking price - the house sold in 9 days!!!! All along Brad was precise in his knowledge and execution. If it was possible to give more than 5-star rating in all of the categories - I would have given him that rating. One of the best and nicest professionals I have had the pleasure to do business with!!!" ------------------ "I am a husband, father of three, techie, apple-user, perfectionist, motivator, educator and of course, real estate enthusiast…I envision my profession as a Realtor® as a great privilege, earned through building trust, overcoming challenges and exceeding expectations.

And in order to be effective and provide the highest level of service, Brad has learned to be a great listener, a strong negotiator, a problem solver, and quick to embrace new technologies that assist in streamlining the transaction process. That’s why so many clients choose Brad as their Realtor®, as well as why he is often viewed as a top agent within his service area within Silicon Valley. Brad grew up in Almaden Valley, a suburban community within San Jose, and as a Bay Area native possesses a vast knowledge of Santa Clara County. He is a second-generation Realtor®, following in his father's footsteps after graduating from Cal Poly SLO in 2003 with an economics degree, and is now the CEO and managing broker of NextHome Lifestyles, the real estate brokerage that he and his father started in 2018. He also currently operates his real estate sales practice by leading a team of top-tier real estate professionals focused on providing an innovative and creative approach to facilitating the purchase and sale of real estate while ensuring his clients receive the highest level of customer care and satisfaction. Whether you’re interested in selling a home or looking to make a purchase, you can expect to have a measurable advantage over the competition by working with Brad and his team.

Brad further describes his services as “concierge-style,” providing a full-service business model, which for home sellers translates into the scheduling and oversight of all pre-listing activities (repairs, renovations, staging, cleaning, etc) as well as all the marketing services (photography, videography, floor plans, website development, etc). For homebuyers, Brad & his team will preview properties, review seller inspections & disclosures, research sales comparables & provide updates on local market conditions, plus much more.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Newark?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Newark?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Newark is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
