Pleasanton, CA — September 11, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Specialists – Mount Pleasant Branch. The brokerage represents the eighth office location opened in the state of South Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

The brokerage will be led by owner/operator and broker of record Thomas Shumpert. He will be joined on the leadership team by REALTOR® Market Manager, Kendall Koste. This will be Thomas’ fourth office opening in the past two years. Other NextHome Specialists offices are located in Columbia, Chapin, and Lexington.

The brokerage will provide services such as first-time home buyer representation, investor purchases, multi-family purchases and sales, land representation, condominium purchases, senior housing needs, and new construction.

The Mount Pleasant brokerage will provide residential real estate services to the areas of Mount Pleasant, Summerville, James Island, Johns Island, and the remainder of the Greater Charleston Area.

In 2016, Shumpert opened his first NextHome franchised brokerage in Columbia, SC. After an impressive year in the Columbia location, he felt it was time to expand his territory to accommodate the growth of the business. In September of 2017, he opened his second office location in Lexington and began expansion. Just one month later, he opened the Chapin branch with business partner Terri Scheper.

With the increase in business referrals to the Mount Pleasant area, Thomas felt it was the right time to expand with a new location.

“I’m thrilled to be in business with someone like Kendall,” said Thomas. “As a top producer in the Charleston market, and coming from one of the largest brokerages in the area, having Kendall on our team has me confident our NextHome Specialists office will be very successful, very soon.”

Now in four locations, NextHome Specialists has over 30 talented agents spread throughout the region.

Please join us in congratulating Thomas, Kendall and the team at NextHome Specialists on their fourth NextHome office location!
