Pleasanton, CA — August 31, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the NextHome franchise – NextHome Living The Northwest – Sandpoint Branch. This will be the third NextHome location opened by the franchisee. NextHome Living The Northwest opened its first location in Post Falls, Idaho in March 2017, and just three months later, they opened their second location in Spokane, Washington.

This branch location of NextHome Living The Northwest will be located in Sandpoint, Idaho. The new office will provide real estate services such as residential sales, investment property sales, land sales, resort properties, and second home sales.

Sandpoint is a destination where many visitors come to ski at one of the nation’s premier ski resorts, Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort.

All three NextHome Living The Northwest locations sit on or near the Washington/Idaho border and will serve the needs of residents in both states. In Washington, the office will cover Spokane, Liberty Lake, Spokane Valley, Cheney, Deer Park, Mead, and Medical Lake. The Idaho brokerages will cover Sandpoint, Hayden, Rathdrum, Spirit Lake, Kellogg, Wallace, Post Falls, and Coeur d’Alene.

The NextHome brokerage will be owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Mike and Sheryl Van Dinter.

Mike will be the Designated Broker for the company and will handle the day-to-day operations, while Sheryl will be in charge of the accounting and financial operations.

The Van Dinters found it the right time to expand when they found great agents to join the brokerage. Top-producing REALTOR® Jake Humble, as well as the successful Davies Team, are just a couple of examples of talented agents that are a part of the NextHome Living The Northwest group.

“Jake has been a great addition to our company,” said Mike. “He brings a wealth of knowledge as a local real estate appraiser and has started his sales career very strongly. He’s already a top producer and has really made his mark in the community.”

“Having the husband/wife team of Tom and Lisa Davies as part of the NextHome brokerage will really put NextHome Living The Northwest on the map,” he added. “Their commitment to exceptional marketing and client service is second to none. Sheryl and I are proud to have them as members of our brokerage.”

As real estate investors for nearly 20 years, the Van Dinters have been involved in both commercial and residential real estate.

Realizing he wanted to be more hands-on with the selling process, Mike attained his real estate license in 2014. By being more involved on the sales side, Mike enjoyed it and saw an opportunity.

“The idea of opening our own brokerage really started in 2016,” recalled Mike. “I had just gotten my real estate broker’s license and found it to be the right time to open our own company.”

Knowing they would need to add technology and tools to set the brokerage apart from other local real estate offices. After researching several real estate franchises, the choice was obvious.

“NextHome stood out from the rest by a mile,” said Mike. “Seeing the orange and how effectively the color scheme worked with yard signage worked so well with listings, in addition to all the incredible technology offered by the company… all of it added up to be the right choice for us.”

Additionally, the company will focus on deep relationships with members of the community.

“At NextHome Living The Northwest, it’s about helping families – not pushing files,” added Sheryl.

When not selling real estate, the Van Dinters focus on family.

Married for 43 years, Mike and Sheryl have two children and six grandchildren. Mike has been flying airplanes for nearly five decades and often flies the family to various vacation destinations. They are also Certified Scuba Divers and enjoy time in the water on their boat.

Please join us in congratulating Mike, Sheryl, and the rest of their team at NextHome Living The Northwest for the opening of their third NextHome office!
