Pleasanton, CA — November 20, 2020 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome with Prosperity, based in Coral Springs, Florida. The brokerage represents the 79th office location opened in Florida for the NextHome franchise and the 528th NextHome office opened nationally.
NextHome with Prosperity will serve residential clients throughout Coral Springs, Pembroke Pines, Miami Lakes, Weston, Cooper City, Parkland, and the remainder of Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
The brokerage is owned by the husband and wife team of Denise Parrish-Gonzalez and Giovanni Gonzalez. Denise will assume the role of Managing Broker, with oversight for coaching and sales. Giovanni will lead the company’s recruiting, marketing, and operations.
Together, Denise and Giovanni bring exceptional experience and expertise to the area’s buyers and sellers.
Denise has worked in the real estate industry since 1999, when she began her career as an assistant at Bellina and Associates. Throughout the next several years, Denise received a well-rounded introduction to leadership in the real estate industry. She handled back office operations, showings, open houses, and specialized in mortgage processing.
From 1999 to 2008, Denise focused her career on mortgages. Her experience gave her unique insight that helped launch her real estate sales career in 2008.
After entering full-time sales, Denise was able to focus on providing her clients with exceptional service and the knowledge to help them navigate a sometimes-stressful process.
“I loved that with my mortgage background, I could provide another layer of education for the clients so that they have a well-rounded insight into the process,” Denise said.
Throughout her career, Denise worked for small independents and national franchises in addition to opening her own brokerage.
As owner of Forté Realty Group, Denise was able to build a culture and company where agents were treated with respect.
“It was great to be able to run things in a way that I felt comfortable with and that truly benefited my clients,” Denise said.
As her career continued to evolve, Denise was given the opportunity to purchase a small franchise. She began to look closely at how various other real estate franchises operated, and that’s when she discovered NextHome.
“The marketing initially caught my eye,” Denise said. “Then, the conversation I had with Charis (Moreno, NextHome’s VP of Sales) was great. The way she speaks about NextHome and her whole attitude about the company gave us a good feeling. It was what I was looking for. It is a company that generates profits, yes, but it was more than that it was also a friendship. I felt that company love and camaraderie come through on the phone.”
Denise brought NextHome’s pitch to Giovanni, and the longtime Wall Street banker began to comb through the fine print.
“I read the contracts for both franchises we were considering, and I felt that NextHome offered so much more – and it was more personable,” Giovanni said. “There was a difference. NextHome is built on being very responsive, very attentive, and very personable. We couldn’t be happier.”
Today, Denise and Giovanni are leveraging NextHome’s suite of tools and support to provide exceptional value for both agents and clients.
“NextHome offers a level of support for owners and agents that you just can’t find anywhere else,” Denise said.
Outside of work, Denise and Giovanni enjoy touring the country on their Harley Davidsons. Denise is the mother of a grown son and daughter, and Giovanni has one 13-year-old son.
Please join us in congratulating Denise and Giovanni on the opening of NextHome with Prosperity in Coral Springs, Florida!
