Pleasanton, CA — April 8, 2022 — NextHome is proud to announce the opening of NextHome Inspire in Flint, Michigan. The brokerage represents the 571st office to join the NextHome franchise out of 575 active office locations across the country.
Located just over an hour north of Detroit, NextHome Inspire is poised to provide professional service to a region in the midst of revival. NextHome Inspire will serve clients throughout Genesee, Oakland, Shiawassee, Saginaw, Lapeer, and Tuscola counties.
The brokerage is owned by 30-year Michigan real estate industry veteran Adam Abt.
Adam first delved into real estate as an investor before obtaining his sales license in 1992. For the next nine years, Adam worked with a nationally franchised brokerage serving his clients with professionalism and friendliness.
In 2001, Adam obtained his broker’s license and opened his own local independent office alongside two other partners. Under Adam’s leadership, the office eventually grew to four offices throughout the Flint area with 25 agents at any given time.
As the years went by, and the role of technology in real estate expanded, Adam began to realize his business needed to evolve. Adam became acutely aware of what NextHome had to offer when his highest producing agent left his brokerage to join NextHome Keely Realty in Grand Blanc.
“Eventually, I called the owner George Keely and he gave me all the details about NextHome,” Adam said.
The pair had known each other for years, and had developed a mutual respect. When George was ready to step out of ownership and back into full-time sales, Adam purchased the franchise.
Today, with Adam in the ownership role, NextHome Inspire still benefits from George’s expertise as a dedicated sales agent.
“I bounce stuff off him all the time,” Adam said. “He is a great guy, and someone in this industry who knows how to do things right.”
As NextHome Inspire evolves, Adam is excited to fully leverage for his clients and agents all the technology that NextHome offers.
“The seamless way the technology works together was amazing,” Adam said. “As an independent, I would have needed to invest thousands into technology and, even then, I would not have half of what NextHome offers.”
Adam was also attracted to NextHome’s corporate culture and training opportunities.
“Everyone in corporate leadership is actually approachable,” Adam said. “When agents do trainings, they are excited about the people they get to learn from.”
Throughout the years, Adam has been active in serving his local MLS through various roles including Director of the Board, Treasurer, grievance committee member, and special projects committee member.
Outside the office, Adam is an active member of his Masonic Lodge and serves his community through Shiners International on its fundraising and transportation committee.
“When children need a ride to a Shriners Hospital, we organize that all free of charge,” Adam said.
Adam is also an accomplished stained-glass artist, with many pieces in national competitions and shows.
Adam is looking forward to marrying his fiancé in October in Key West. Together, they are the proud parents of a blended family.
Please join us in congratulating Adam on the opening of NextHome Inspire in Flint, Michigan!
