Pleasanton, CA — August 12, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the expansion of NextHome CNY Realty with a new brokerage office in North Syracuse, New York. NextHome CNY Realty (N. Syracuse) builds on the success of its flagship office in Fayetteville, New York. 

The brokerage represents the 487th office to join the NextHome franchise out of 523 active office locations across the country

NextHome CNY Realty (N. Syracuse) will serve the residential and commercial real estate needs of clients in the Syracuse area and surrounding suburbs encompassing five counties including Onondaga, Cayuga, Oneida, Oswego, and Madison.

Both NextHome CNY Realty brokerage locations are owned by Samantha Dougherty, a high-producing REALTOR® with a history of successful team building. Since opening NextHome CNY Realty in April 2020, the brokerage has already broken into the top 12 in area sales.   

This expansion is driven not only by phenomenal sales demand, but more importantly by the expertise and energy of The Tarry Team – a high-performing group of three professional REALTORS® who are obsessed with excellent client experiences. Team leader, Tom Tarry, brings unbounded energy to every transaction while Jodi Tarry (a buyer’s agent) offers clients a steady, calming presence no matter how complex the transaction. Kelly Soccocio rounds out the team as a buyer’s agent. 

“We are thrilled to have The Tarry Team launching our NorthSyracuse office,” Samantha said. “The drive and passion they have and the high goals they set for themselves are incredible to see. The Tarry Team sets high expectations, and they are not afraid of the hard work required to achieve them.”

In June alone, The Tarry Team closed 19 transactions and they are on track to achieve more than $12 million in annual sales volume – in an area where the median home price hovers around $150,000. 

Their achievements become more impressive when considering that 2020 was their first year as all full-time REALTORS®. 

“We are fanatical about reaching our client’s goals,” Tom said. “We also expect the client to have a very different experience with us. We deliver what we say we are going to. Our approach is intelligent, with great marketing plans, and we are passionate about our clients. In partnership with NextHome, we can take this legacy to the next level.”

“In addition to the access they get to our expertise, clients can also expect us to use all of NextHome’s industry-leading tools at our fingertips to market their home and provide them with excellent service,” Samantha said.

Although she was licensed in 2004 in New Jersey, Samantha began selling full-time in the Syracuse area in 2012.

It was in 2015 during her time on a top-producing team that Samantha discovered her passion for helping other agents reach new career heights. 

In 2017, Samantha created The Dougherty Home Team at Keller Williams where she had the opportunity to truly let her mentoring abilities shine. By 2019, the team was four-agents strong and had become one of the top 20 highest producing teams in the area.

Samantha used this momentum to open NextHome CNY Realty in 2020 and has been thrilled with how things have gone since then. 

“As we expand, NextHome CNY Realty (N. Syracuse) will offer the same amazing service and tools that I strive to provide at our Fayetteville location,” Samantha said. “As we mentor and train agents, we now have an extension of that same great philosophy and fun office culture in the N. Syracuse area. Tom, Jodi, and the entire Tarry Team are passionate about client service, and they completely embrace NextHome’s philosophy of putting Humans Over Houses, and they will extend that service to that community as well.”

Please join us in congratulating Samantha, and The Tarry Team on the opening of NextHome CNY Realty’s North Syracuse, New York office!
