Pleasanton, CA— April 28, 2017 NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Heroes Choice Realty. The new brokerage is the 26th NextHome franchise location in the state of Florida.

Based out of Crestview, NextHome Heroes Choice Realty will service the local communities of Crestview, Niceville, Fort Walton Beach and Destin.

Owned and operated by real estate broker, Tina Maples, the brokerage will provide sales services for residential, military relocation, first time home buyers, luxury, investment properties & commercial.

Licensed since 2004, Maples started her real estate career after serving in the Air Force at Eglin AFB and over a decade in advertising sales & marketing.

Spending much of her career with the big box brokers, Maples steadily built a phenomenal sales career from past customers and referrals. Her dedication included lots of hard work going above and beyond for her customers. This wasn’t an issue for Maples, as she finds client service to be the most rewarding part of her job.

Her commitment to the industry doesn’t stop with just client service. Maples is an advocate for receiving additional training whenever she can. She holds real estate designations such as Military Relocation Specialist, Florida Military Specialist, Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute (GRI), and Certified Distressed Property Professional. Maples also served on the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS® Commercial Forum.

After seeing incredible growth in her sales career, Maples opened her own independent boutique brokerage, but found herself wanting to grow her company more quickly. She knew that the opportunity of a franchise model could allow her to achieve her goals of company growth.

After doing her research, Maples found NextHome to be exactly what she was looking for.

“With NextHome, I feel like I’m surrounded by people who genuinely care about my success and are willing to share ideas,” said Maples.

“I have always enjoyed real estate, but I equally enjoy mentoring other agents who are willing to put in the hard work to succeed and who are eager to work together as an office. My passion is to keep the business of the ‘REALTOR®’ to be professional, ethical, while implementing those concepts when helping buyers and sellers during their transaction,” added Maples.

Maples will lean on the franchise to provide her agents the technology and support necessary to thrive in today’s challenging real estate market.

“I love everything the franchise is providing,” said Maples. “I was using a few of the programs in my previous brokerage but when I saw that all those and MORE were included in the NextHome franchise, it was a no brainer for me. It gave me back the time I was wasting by always making sure I had the right tools. Now I can concentrate on what’s most important – my client and their buying and selling needs.”

When Maples is not selling real estate, she spends time on her 38-acre home site with her husband of 24 years, Felix. After he retired as a Captain from the Department of Corrections, the couple love to host family and friends for get-togethers at their home.

Their son, Corey, whom worked beside Maples after getting his Real Estate license, but now proudly serves as 3rd generation in the United States Air Force.
