Pleasanton, CA— August 3, 2016 — NextHome is proud to announce our latest addition to the franchise, NextHome Realty Marketing. The brokerage represents the third NextHome franchise in the state of Georgia.
Owned and operated by local top-producing REALTOR®, Garrick Ratcliff, the Atlanta-based brokerage will provide residential real estate services to the areas of Cartersville, Acworth, Dalton, Calhoun and the remainder of the greater Atlanta area. He will be joined by the broker of record and 37-year real estate veteran, Beverly Clayton.
Ratcliff started his real estate career as an accountant for a local real estate office in 2005. As the accountant and bookkeeper for the company, he was able to see the financial benefits of being a real estate agent.
Initially discouraged by well-intended real estate friends, Ratcliff pursued his interest in getting his real estate license. In late 2006, he started his real estate career with a Dalton-based franchise brokerage.
“I was fortunate enough to have a very successful first year in real estate,” said Ratcliff. “As someone who always embraced the entrepreneurial spirit, it only made sense for me to build my own company instead of someone else’s.”
Ratcliff opened New Realty Marketing a year later and spent the next decade building an impressive and thriving real estate brokerage.
In early 2016, Ratcliff wanted more structure and systems in his business and looked for a real estate franchise that would help him achieve this for his company.
“Knowing that I wanted to partner with a real estate franchise to help me with my business was the easy part,” recalls Ratcliff. “Finding the right franchise was the challenge. NextHome was the right decision for me with the technology, systems, and simple fee structure.”
Please join us in welcoming Garrick, Beverly, and the rest of the team at NextHome Realty Marketing to the NextHome family!
