About Nicole Gates

Nicole was raised in Marysville, CA with 7 siblings.  She had aspirations of being an attorney like her father. Never in a million years did she think she'd stumble into the real estate industry, but you can't always predict where or when you'll discover what you're meant to do in life.

Nicole was taught at a young age that if you want something in life, you have to work for it.  So that's what she did.  And she worked hard. 

As the years went by, Nicole worked her way from being an international equestrian coach (a story for another time) to becoming a business coach, specializing in marketing, never wavering in her resolve to become the best version of herself with each career move.

Nicole shifted into the real estate industry in 2018 she fought a highly aggressive form of breast cancer.  While going through cancer treatments, Nicole's father, who is a real estate and probate attorney, encouraged her to jump into real estate, knowing that her knowledge of business and her passion for people made her a perfect fit for the industry.  And he was right! Nicole found that her love for people and ability to offer them the best possible guidance in what can be an otherwise stressful situation was the perfect calling for her. She set out to help clients grow their personal wealth with each real estate transaction while guiding and protecting them from the many pitfalls that could transpire throughout each transaction.

As her career advanced, Nicole found her stride working with residential, commercial, land, and ranch properties in Yuba, Sutter, Colusa, and Butte Counties.  She's an expert in marketing, advertising, communication, and negotiation, all aspects that are highly valued by her clients. 

Nicole lives in Live Oak, CA with her husband, Patrick, who is a United States Air Force Veteran, and 3 of their 5 children, Daniel, Nicholas, and Madelynn, and their two dogs, Emma and Franke.  Their two oldest daughters, Michayla and Megan have grown and started their own amazing lives and families.  In her free time, Nicole enjoys working with horses, horseback riding, camping, completing furniture make-overs, and decorating/staging. 

Nicole aims to provide the highest level of service to her clients and takes deep pride in helping them achieve their real estate goals. 

Need a little guidance with your real estate needs? Reach out to Nicole any time! She would love to hear from you and help you get the information you need to guide you through your real estate transaction.
