Pleasanton, CA — January 10, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome First Source. The brokerage represents the 21st office location opened in the state of Texas for the NextHome franchise.
The company will be led by broker/owner Debbie Grigg and she will handle all day-to-day operations for the company.
Located less than 15 miles from Downtown Houston, the Pasadena-based brokerage will focus on helping clients throughout the southeast side of greater Houston area. Cities include Pasadena, La Porte, Baytown, Deer Park, Seabrook, Clear Lake, Alvin, Manvel, Pearland, Galveston, and League City.
NextHome First Source will handle all types of residential property sales such as first-time home buyers, move up buyers, investors, condos and townhouses, ranches and land, luxury, vacation properties, and all forms of residential sales of 1-4 units.
Licensed since 1991, Debbie has experience in both real estate sales and in lending. She started her career in Deer Park, TX and worked for a local independent brokerage until 1993.
Debbie moved in 1993 to RE/MAX when they opened the franchise’s 100th brokerage in the state of Texas. When Debbie came on board, she was the first agent in the new brokerage and grew a strong book of business. Through her very caring approach with clients, Debbie built strong relationships with those in the community and created an earned trust where referrals became commonplace for her.
In 2013, Debbie moved to a boutique brokerage where she continued serving her clients, selling more than 20 properties annually.
In mid-2018, Debbie knew it was time to go out on her own.
“I was helping out around the office and working with different agents,” said Debbie. “With the time I was putting in assisting others, I was basically helping out like an office manager. I really enjoy helping people in their career, so I knew it was time to look into opening my own company.”
When Debbie discovered NextHome, she really liked what the company was doing.
“I found a lot of the tools and systems that NextHome had to be items of value I was already using in my business,” she said. “I did research for about two months and the marketing that NextHome provides is second to none. I’m proud to affiliate my brokerage with NextHome.”
As the leader for NextHome First Source, Debbie has proven her commitment to raising the standard in real estate in her community.
She has been a real estate educator for nearly a decade. Debbie taught courses for two different licensing schools and was an instructor at Alvin Community College for real estate classes.
“I love to teach and help people improve in real estate,” said Debbie. “By helping others be better in real estate, it raises the bar for all and helps our industry overall.”
She also spends a lot of time volunteering locally. For parts of the past five years, Debbie has volunteered for several organizations such as the Women of the Moose Lodge (The Fraternal Order of the Moose), which helps the local women’s shelter, nursing homes, and those who are homeless.
Debbie and her husband, Doug, have been married for six years. They share a loving home with Doug’s 17-year-old son, Garrett.
Please join us in congratulating Debbie and the rest of the team at NextHome First Source on their brand new NextHome office location in Pasadena, TX!
