Pleasanton, CA — July 16, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome NWA Pro Realty. The new brokerage represents the second NextHome franchised office opened in the state of Arkansas.

NextHome NWA Pro Realty will be led by broker/owner Chance Schubert who will handle all day-to-day aspects of the company including mentoring, training, and brokerage growth. He will be joined on the leadership team by his business partner, Patrick Kuhlman. Partick will serve as the Team Leader of their real estate sales team. Having known each other for more than 12 years, Chance and Patrick have made a dynamic team and have been top-producing REALTORS® for several years.

Additionally, Mary Taylor will hold the role of “Chief Everything Officer” and will handle all financials and compliance issues for the office. 

Based out of Bentonville, the agents of NextHome NWA Pro Realty will service all real estate needs in Northwest Arkansas including Rogers, Centerton, Bella Vista, Springdale, and Fayetteville. 

The brokerage will help residents in the local communities with various real estate services such as first-time homebuyers, investors, military veterans, commercial, condos, new construction, and all forms of seller representation.

Bentonville is home to more than 50,000 residents and is known for being the birthplace of Walmart in 1962. It’s located 3.5 hours northwest of Little Rock and is the ninth-largest city in the state.

Before real estate, both Chance and Patrick came from a background in the hospitality industry. Chance was introduced to real estate and got his license in 2012 after helping Patrick’s mother look at homes she wanted to buy. The agent that was helping Patrick’s mother noticed Chance’s keen eye towards real estate and suggested that he look into becoming a REALTOR®.

“After working for a while in the hotel industry, my introduction to real estate as a career came at a welcome time,” said Chance. “Patrick and I were in hospitality and both of us were getting burned out. I made the leap into real estate in 2012, and Patrick joined a year later.”

Chance started with a local franchised brokerage, and in just his second year, he sold more than $3 million in volume – quite a feat considering the average sales price was $140,000 at the time. 

After Patrick joined the real estate world and formed a team with Chance in 2013, he brought a completely different niche to the team. By adding new construction builders and foreclosure investors to the mix, he expanded their business to new heights.

In 2014, the team did more than $10 million in volume and has continued growing year-over-year.

In 2018, the six-member team sold more than 130 transactions to the tune of $28.5 million in volume, making them one of the top selling teams in the entire Northwest Arkansas area. 

In mid-2018, Chance and Patrick started looking at their expenses and investments of their real estate business and realized they were basically running a small brokerage within their brokerage. 

“The way we were running our team was like running our own real estate company,” recalled Chance. “At that point, we started looking at opening our own brokerage, and that’s when we found NextHome.” 

“There are 113 real estate offices in our county,” said Patrick. “We needed to stand out with our marketing, brand consistency, and making a real impact in what we could offer our clients. As NextHome NWA Pro Realty, we have definitely achieved that.”

Chance says what makes NextHome NWA Pro Realty different is the consistency of service, the level of professionalism that a client will receive, and that all demographics will be treated fairly and with respect.

“Whether you are buying a $20,000 lot or a million-dollar mansion, our team is ready to serve the needs of our clients and treat them with the respect and professionalism they deserve,” said Chance. 

Please join us in congratulating Chance, Patrick, Mary, and the rest of the team at NextHome NWA Pro Realty on the opening of their brand new NextHome brokerage in Bentonville, AR!
