Pleasanton, CA — October 17, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce the expansion of NextHome Freitas Realty Group. Lead by owner Livia Freitas Monteforte, the new office in Falmouth, Massachusetts will serve clients across Cape Cod. NextHome Freitas Realty Group’s expansion represents the sixth office opened in Massachusetts for the franchise.
“As we grow, we want people to know that we will be present where our buyers and sellers are,” Livia said. “We want anyone in the Cape Cod area to know that we are a luxury, boutique real estate firm that makes real estate fun and modern. More than that, we are able to supply people with the help they need wherever they are on The Cape.”
The new office is located in historic downtown Falmouth, a stunning area peppered with picturesque storefronts where locals and vacationers meander throughout all four seasons.
“We are pretty excited to be able to expand our location to another major hub,” Livia said.
NextHome Freitas Realty Group will provide residential real estate sales services to the entire Cape Cod area including Falmouth, Barnstable, Woods Hole, Chatham, Bourne, Brewster, Sandwich, Mashpee, Yarmouth, Dennis, and the remainder of the Cape Cod area – commonly known as “The Cape”.
Livia opened the doors to her first Mashpee-based NextHome brokerage in October 2015. Since then, her team has grown to 18 agents (and counting) whose superior service has made NextHome Freitas Realty Group a well-known name in Cape Cod real estate.
“We offer a really fresh take on real estate and we know that Cape Cod homeowners (and future homeowners) are going to be happy with what we bring to the table,” Livia said.
Licensed since 1999, Livia began her sales career at Kinlin Grover Real Estate, a regional boutique brokerage. As a self-starter, she was able to quickly and efficiently set herself apart from the rest of the local real estate community by focusing on the customer service experience.
In 2003, Livia made the move to a franchised brokerage in order to start building a team to assist with her growing business. While she continued building her business, she was forced to purchase many of the tools and systems she needed to streamline her team’s work. Realizing a strong need to improve the way real estate was conducted on Cape Cod, Livia decided it was time for a change.
Instead of looking for a new company to affiliate with, Livia knew she could create the superior standards she expected out of a brokerage by opening her own company – and that’s exactly what she did.
In 2005, she opened Freitas Realty Group. Her passion for creating a brokerage that featured tech-savvy agents who were passionate about helping people with their real estate purchase or sale of their home was infused into the business. Agents loved the atmosphere, and Livia and her husband James grew the brokerage to 11 agents. Known in the community as “executive agents,” her team provided first-class service coupled with a high level of technology and transaction management to make the transaction as smooth as possible.
“I wanted to be the client-centric real estate brokerage that was the breath of fresh air our community was missing,” Livia said.
From 2011 to 2015, Livia never let up on driving the leads to the brokerage. This resulted in an incredible 30% increase in their company’s closed sales business for four consecutive years. In 2015, her brokerage exceeded $20,000,000 in sales volume – a huge indicator of the local community’s trust in her boutique firm.
Livia continued to stay at the forefront of new and innovative real estate technology, but often found herself vetting and spending countless hours making sure the products were the best for her agents.
“I was days away from signing with a familiar national brand when I randomly Googled ‘Luxury Real Estate Franchise’,” recalled Livia. “That’s when I found NextHome. The company provides the brokers of today with the tools necessary to get out of the weeds and back to focusing on the customers.”
“From the moment I connected with Livia, I could sense her passion for real estate and helping people buy or sell a home,” said NextHome’s Vice President of Sales, Charis Moreno. “As a mother, I could relate to Livia on many different levels including how she handles her responsibilities as a business owner and her two daughters. The partnership with NextHome allows them to focus on their business growth and recruitment of new talent, while the NextHome franchise joins forces with one of the top brokerages in one of the most prestigious markets in the United States.”
When not selling real estate, Livia and James enjoy spending time with their two daughters, Dolce and Capri.
Please join us in congratulating Livia, James, and their team at NextHome Freitas Realty Group on their ever-expanding success!
