Pleasanton, CA — September 16, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce Kimberly Trigg as the new owner of NextHome Pro Realty, based in Salina, Kansas. NextHome Pro Realty’s prior Owner, Owen Freiburger, will remain with the company as the Broker. 

NextHome Pro Realty will continue to serve all types of residential clients across Salina and its surrounding communities. 

Under Kimberly’s leadership, NextHome Pro Realty will provide exceptional service for a region that is catching homebuyer’s attention. Salina has a thriving community atmosphere fueled by festivals, local dining, and its own regional airport. Salina also sits at the intersection of two major interstates, making it the heart of the region. The area’s 47,000-plus population works in manufacturing, aerospace, and academia. Kansas State University, Kansas Wesleyan University, and The University of Kansas each have schools in the area. 

“It is a town that is all dressed up with nowhere to go,” Kimberly said with a laugh. “From single individuals to big families, Salina has something for everyone.”

As owner, Kimberly plans to improve the brokerage’s ability to serve a diverse array of clients, from Spanish-speaking locals to those who speak Asian languages. 

As she steps into ownership at NextHome Pro Realty, Kimberly’s life experiences give her an unparalleled degree of compassion for her clients. 

Once in Kansas, Kimberly rebuilt her life from the ground up. After spending time in a homeless shelter, Kimberly was able to put herself through a bachelor’s degree program at Kansas State University in Family Studies and Human Services. Her dedication to helping others improve their lives extended into real estate and she obtained her sales license in 2016. 

“I’ve lost a lot of things, and I’ve had many things taken from me, but when you get an education, they can never take that away. I hope I can pass that lesson on to my own children,” Kimberly said.

While pursuing her studies, Kimberly met Owen Freiburger, who became her mentor. She began working as his assistant at a local brokerage, then began working as an agent when Owen opened NextHome Pro Realty. 

Since that time, Kimberly’s career has blossomed because of her compassion for her clients. 

“I am so passionate about helping people purchase homes they never thought they would be able to,” Kimberly said. “I came here homeless and it took us 10 years to become homeowners. That experience of buying my own home is something I will treasure and I hope I can give that same great experience to NextHome Pro Realty clients.”

Over the years, Kimberly has become immersed in volunteer and advocacy work for Salina-area housing organizations. She is a board member of the Community Housing Development Organization and is the Vice Chair of the Salina Housing Authority Board. Kimberly is an active advocate with the RESULTS organization. Her proudest accomplishment with that organization was successfully lobbying the federal government to protect SNAP benefits and Earned Income Tax Credits for Americans. Kimberly participates in the Kansas Hispanic and Latino American Affairs Commission and is also a supporter of the United Way. 

“NextHome has been so supportive in my journey of just being an agent,” Kimberly said. “As we have moved forward with this transfer, everyone has been so kind and supportive – and with NextHome it is very sincere and genuine. That makes this emotional for me. I am so thrilled to be the new owner of NextHome Pro Realty.”

Please join us in congratulating Kimberly on her incredible accomplishments and on her new ownership of NextHome Pro Realty!
