Pleasanton, CA – February 15, 2018- NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome CORE Realty. The brokerage represents the 16th location opened in the state of Texas and the 250th franchised location overall for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Lubbock, the company will be owned and operated by real estate broker Tim Garrett, along with his wife Janet. Tim is the broker of record and will handle the day-to-day operations for the company, while Janet will handle all administrative responsibilities for the brokerage.

NextHome CORE Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, multi-family properties, new construction, luxury, and land sales to the areas of Lubbock, Wolfforth, Idalou, Slaton, and the remainder of Lubbock County.

With a population of nearly 300,000 in the Lubbock metropolitan area, the city of Lubbock is known as the “Hub of the South Plains.” Two little known facts about the area are that more cotton is grown in West Texas than anywhere in the world and that there are more music venues per capita than anywhere in Texas – including Austin.

Licensed since 1984, Tim brings more than three decades of real estate experience to the NextHome franchise. Spending the last 22 years with WestMark Realtors in Lubbock, Tim was minority owner, office manager and in charge of the day-to-day operations of the 85-agent brokerage.

Janet entered real estate in 2012 after a career as a grade school teacher. As Tim’s business grew to the point of needing help, Janet stepped in and provided the assistance needed to retain the high level of service to their clients.

In mid-2017, Tim and Janet felt that it was time to go out on their own and start their real estate company. They began looking and researching about franchises when they came upon the NextHome franchise.

“As we looked into NextHome, we found many of the core beliefs of the franchise aligned with our core beliefs,” recalled Tim. “Once we decided to move forward, we felt the name NextHome CORE Realty was perfect for what we believe in and the company that we became a part of.”

Tim describes their brokerage as having four CORE principles: Trust, Integrity, High-Level Marketing, and Creating Friends and Clients for Life.

In addition to real estate sales, Tim gives back to the real estate industry. With more than 25 years in volunteer REALTOR® leadership, Tim has served as the Chair for every committee at the Lubbock Association of REALTORS® and in 1997, he served as President for the Association.

Tim currently serves on the Executive Committee for the Texas Association of REALTORS® – representing over 120,000 REALTORS®.

Tim and Janet have been married seven years and have a blended family of four children – daughters Tiffany (age 26), Baylee (19), Darcy (16), and one son, Storm (20).

The couple love to travel and Lubbock is a perfect location to accommodate their interest in traveling. The city’s proximity to various destinations in Texas is known for being “halfway to everywhere.”

Please join us in congratulating Tim, Janet and the rest of the team at NextHome CORE Realty on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Lubbock, TX!
