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.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in San Mateo County?
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.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in San Mateo County?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in San Mateo County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell 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.
