Pleasanton, CA— November 8, 2016 — NextHome is proud to announce the new ownership of our Meridian, Idaho office, NextHome Treasure Valley.
The brokerage will now be owned and operated by business partners Heath Van Patten and Nathan Orchard. The Meridian-based brokerage will continue to serve the real estate needs of the Meridian, Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, and Eagle communities.
Growing up in Arizona, Van Patten always had an interest in real estate. When he relocated to Idaho in 2012, he found it to be the perfect opportunity to begin his real estate career.
Over the past year, Van Patten served as the Head of Business Development for NextHome Treasure Valley. Under his leadership, the company grew quickly as he recruited numerous talented agents.
When the possibility of taking over as owner of the brokerage presented itself, Van Patten felt it was the right time to own a real estate company. Currently the owner of Meridian Adventure Boot Camp, a comprehensive fitness facility, Van Patten already had the understanding of how to run a thriving business.
“As an owner of an already successful business, I was very happy to be able to take over as owner of NextHome Treasure Valley and mix my passion for real estate with my ability to be an entrepreneur,” said Van Patten. “I know that our market has a wonderful opportunity for a unique, fresh, and forward-thinking brand like NextHome.”
Orchard will join Van Patten as co-owner of the brokerage, bringing years of experience in new home sales as an inside sales agent with Hayden Homes, a local new home builder.
In 2014, Van Patten met Orchard when he bought his house from him.
“I was very impressed with Nathan when he helped our family buy our house,” recalled Van Patten. “Our entire experience with him was great and I found him to be a real professional. When it came time to consider a business partner for our brokerage, Nathan was a natural choice. I’m proud to be in business with him.”
“When Heath asked me to be a part of the ownership team for NextHome Treasure Valley, I found it to be a great fit,” said Orchard. “Being in business with Heath is an exciting opportunity and I know we will provide our community with a brokerage that will be a progressive, tech-savvy real estate company that our area has been missing.”
When not selling real estate, Van Patten and Orchard enjoy spending time with their families.
Van Patten and his wife of five years, Kristin, have a daughter named Addison. The Van Patten’s are into biking, hiking, running, and snowshoeing in the winter.
Orchard and his wife, Heather, have three children – Ellie Mae (14 years old), Corey (10), and Ryan (8 months). When not working, the couple can be found at the various sporting events their kids participate in.
Please join us in welcoming Heath, Nathan, and the rest of the team at NextHome Treasure Valley to the NextHome family!
