NextHome Dana Trahern Realty opens in Southwest Kansas

NextHome Dana Trahern Realty opens in Southwest Kansas

Dana Trahern

Pleasanton, CA — July 22, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Dana Trahern Realty, based in Ulysses, Kansas. 

The brokerage represents the 508th office to join the NextHome franchise out of 518 active office locations across the country.

Located in the family-friendly southwest corner of Kansas, the brokerage will serve clients in Ulysses, Hugoton, Johnson City, and Satanta.

Under the leadership of Ulysses-native Dana Trahern, the brokerage will offer clients an unparalleled real estate experience. 

“I’m a people person who loves making each experience smooth and stress-free for my clients,” Dana said. 

Dana has been a professional REALTOR® since 2018. Prior to real estate, Dana taught 5th grade for 10 years. She also helped run the family business, Riley Ford, which remained a pillar of the Ulysses community for more than 40 years. 

Just two short years after becoming a licensed REALTOR®, Dana’s exceptional sales numbers and work ethic helped her achieve her broker’s license. In a town of about 6,000 people, she was able to reach 50 transactions in the space of two years. 

As Dana’s reputation for excellence grew, she began thinking about opening her own brokerage. As she was mulling over the benefits of franchising versus going independent, Dana reached out to a friend who suggested NextHome. 

“I loved the professionalism and look of it,” Dana said. “I reached out to Charis (Moreno, NextHome’s VP of Sales) and wondered if NextHome would fit with my existing work ethic and culture. Immediately I was hooked. Once I really dug into it, NextHome had this great business model set up. All I needed to do was plug my work ethic in and keep going. The more I looked into it, NextHome just got better and better.”

Today, Dana is using NextHome’s tools, technology and marketing to provide exceptional service to Ulysses-area clients. 

“I’m not the agent who will stick a sign in your yard then wait for someone to call me,” Dana said. “I have a great marketing plan that is now backed by industry-leading advertising. I have always worked extremely hard for my clients and will continue that level of service, now with NextHome’s support.”

When she isn’t helping clients, Dana enjoys spending time with her husband, Stacy, and her two children Chase (21) and Hailey (18). She enjoys traveling or unplugging with a good day’s work on the family farm. 

Please join us in congratulating Dana on the opening of NextHome Dana Trahern Realty in Ulysses, Kansas!

NextHome Real Estate Perfection opens in Lakewood Ranch, Florida

NextHome Real Estate Perfection opens in Lakewood Ranch, Florida

Pleasanton, CA — July 16, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Real Estate Perfection, based in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. The brokerage represents the 497th office to join the NextHome franchise out of 519 active office locations across the country.

NextHome Real Estate Perfection will serve clients across Manatee County, with a focus on residential buyers and sellers in the Lakewood Ranch area. 

The brokerage is owned by the husband-and-wife team of Greg and Kassandra Simony. Greg has been a licensed real estate agent since 2002 and Kassandra has held her real estate sales license since 2019. 

Together, Greg and Kassandra have been successful entrepreneurs, owning several successful businesses throughout the years. However, real estate called to them as a business that could make a real impact on the lives of others in their community. 

“We were excited to provide a real estate experience where clients could be listened to and receive service that was truly tailored to what they want and need – not simply what is convenient for the agent,” Greg said. 

When they discovered NextHome, Greg and Kassandra knew they had found a franchise that could help them accomplish their goals. 

“The technology, the marketing, the tools, everything was great,” Kassandra said. “And the affordability factor of starting with NextHome gave us the flexibility to invest money the way we needed to.”

Today, Greg and Kassandra are offering clients across Manatee County prompt and professional service, backed by NextHome’s suite of industry-leading technology. 

“We genuinely believe that if you are going to do something, you need to do it right,” Kassandra said. “That means we answer the phone, we provide unparalleled service, and we are really responsive to our clients.”

Outside the office, Greg enjoys giving back to his community through various nonprofit organizations. He is a dedicated athlete who helps disabled individuals participate in triathlons through using a slew of adaptive gear he has accumulated over the years. 

Greg and Kassandra are the parents of one daughter, Marie (11), who is an accomplished competitive swimmer. 

Please join us in congratulating Greg and Kassandra on the opening of NextHome Real Estate Perfection in Lakewood Ranch, Florida!

NextHome announces new Northern Idaho brokerage

NextHome announces new Northern Idaho brokerage

Carrie and Shawn Sutton

Pleasanton, CA — July 9, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome 365 Realty, based in Athol, Idaho. 

Located just 30 minutes north of Coeur D’ Alene and an hour east of Spokane, Washington, NextHome 365 Realty is poised to serve the growing northern Idaho area. 

Under the leadership of owners Carrie and Shawn Sutton, NextHome 365 Realty offers expertise in waterfront property, secondary and vacation rental homes, land and acreage, ranches, and all other types of residential real estate. 

Carrie has more than 16 years of high-producing sales experience. Shawn obtained his Idaho sales license in 2007, his Washington sales license in 2019, and his broker’s license in 2021. He is also the owner of Sutton Tile and Marble.

Together, Carrie and Shawn offer unique expertise and people-first service to their clients. 

“Throughout my career, the thing I’m most proud of is the relationships we have built,” Carrie said. “To me, it’s not about a transaction, but about the humans we are able to help and the lives we impact for the better.”

Although Carrie remains laser-focused on the human side of the business, the Suttons sales numbers are also remarkable. Last year, they achieved $17 million in sales volume with 46 transactions. This year, they are primed to exceed that number by 20 additional transactions. 

Their success is built on NextHome’s foundation of putting humans over houses. In 2016, the Suttons became part-owners of a northern Idaho NextHome franchise. In 2019, they stepped away from ownership to focus all their attention on their sales clients. The banner years that followed, and their rededication to the people who mattered most, helped the Suttons know that 2021 was the right time to step back into ownership. 

“There was no doubt in my mind that NextHome was the franchise we wanted to continue to partner with,” Carrie said. “I’ve been with a lot of different companies and by far NextHome’s communication, its support, its back-office systems make every day and every transaction go so smoothly.”

As they launch NextHome 365 Realty, the Suttons hope to position themselves as the company that cares. 

“I want to be a household name, not because we sell real estate but because we care and we are passionate and have the drive to support people,” Carrie said. “As we grow, we are looking for agents who will embrace that caring mentality. It is always humans over houses for us.”

That dedication to service has been a distinguishing trait for the Suttons since they started in real estate. The couple are always helping in their community with various needs on a personal basis. When an unexpected windstorm toppled hundreds of trees in January, the Suttons helped coordinate cleanup efforts. When local businesses open, the Suttons use their thriving social media platforms to give them a boost. And when storms trap locals in snowbound homes, the Suttons find ways to help plow them out. In addition to those personal acts of community service, Carrie also serves on the Coeur D Alene MLS Board of Directors. 

“My vision for NextHome 365 Realty is to continue to offer an outstanding service level to our community,” Carrie said. “Our vision is to continue to give absolutely amazing service not only to our agents but also clients and customers.”

The brokerage is a family affair, which includes Carrie and Shawn’s children. Courtney Lampert is a professional REALTOR® who carries on her mother’s legacy of hard work and dedication to client service, Turner is a professional real estate photographer, and April is a lender at a local bank. 

Please join us in congratulating the Sutton family on the opening of NextHome 365 Realty in Athol, Idaho!

NextHome HomeFront expands to serve military families

NextHome HomeFront expands to serve military families

Crystal Boggs

Pleasanton, CA — July 2, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the expansion of NextHome HomeFront, serving clients at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. This newest addition expands on the success of the original NextHome HomeFront location in Ocean Springs that opened in 2019. 

The brokerage represents the 499th office to join the NextHome franchise out of 517 active office locations across the country.

NextHome HomeFront is owned by Crystal Boggs, a high-producing professional who has a passion for serving military families. 

Of the 15 agents working with NextHome HomeFront, all but two come from military families. The new brokerage is also ideally situated just outside Keesler Air Force Base’s new main gate – a multi-million-dollar upgrade years in the making. 

“My husband retired from the military in 2019, and his service included nine years at Keesler – right after Hurricane Katrina came through,” Crystal said. “We understand the military lifestyle like no one else. We are aiming to be hyper-focused on the needs of military families.”

Crystal began her real estate sales career in San Antonio in 2016, and when the family moved to Mississippi in 2017, she again became licensed. Crystal went into real estate full time after selling off her very successful party rental business, Biloxi Bounce House, which did more than 1,000 rentals annually. 

She spent most of the first year learning the marketing and prospecting side of real estate, and that dedication to education paid off just a few months into her second year in the business. Within the last three months of 2017, she sold over $1 million in real estate – an incredible number considering the local average home sales price at that time was just under $140,000.

Crystal made the move to a local NextHome franchised office where, in 2018, she sold 24 homes with more than $5 million in total sales volume.

In late 2018, Crystal felt it was the right time to open her own brokerage. As the previous owner of a successful business prior to real estate, her experience and track record gave her the confidence to open NextHome HomeFront.

“NextHome HomeFront is a boutique brokerage company where the agents are treated like family,” said Crystal. “That allows them to connect with the ownership/leadership team and know they are heard and treated with respect.”

In 2019, Crystal was honored with one of the most esteemed awards a military spouse can receive – Armed Forces Insurance Keesler Military Spouse of The Year. She also mentors military spouses to have transferable careers and assists retirees get started in a real estate career. 

Crystal and her husband Bryan have been married for 19 years and are the proud parents of Mecquela (age 17) and Bryanna (15). Mecquela graduated a year early from high school and is joining the Airforce this summer, continuing the family’s military life.

The family enjoys all types of outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, and crabbing. 

Please join us in congratulating Crystal and the rest of the team at NextHome HomeFront on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Biloxi, Mississippi!

Nicole Diamond

Pleasanton, CA — June 25, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Signature Properties, based in Richmond, Virginia.

Nicole obtained her real estate sales license in 1999, in her first year she was named by her brokerage’s Rookie of the Year. Along with the aggressive sales, she developed a reputation for exceptional service.

Throughout her career, Nicole has worked with brokerages both large and small. Eventually though, Nicole knew that she wanted to offer her clients something different. Something that would cement the relations by delivering a service filled with long lasting benefits, Something memorable.  While earning and sustaining their loyalty and trust

“Owning my own franchise would give me the opportunity to do business the way that I wanted, the way that I knew would be best for my clients,” Nicole said.

Today, Nicole is building NextHome Signature Properties with both compassion and cutting-edge technology.

As Nicole continues to build NextHome Signature Properties, she hopes to connect with professional REALTORS® who put the client front and center in all they do.

“Our agents will be people who are aggressive, care about their career, and understand that quality of service is important in building viable relationships with your clients in the community,” said Nicole.

Nicole is excited to extend NextHome’s Humans Over Houses motto to The Doorways, a nonprofit she has been supporting over the past few years, and plans to continually support through NextHome Signature Properties. Based in Richmond, VA, The Doorways provides lodging and support for patients and their loved ones who need to be close to the nearby hospital but not far from the feeling of “home.”  

Outside the office, Nicole enjoys traveling, cooking, and small DIY projects that don’t often turn out exactly as planned.

NextHome People First Realty expands in Brooklyn, New York

NextHome People First Realty expands in Brooklyn, New York

MA Dudley

Pleasanton, CA — June 18, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the expansion of NextHome People First Realty in Brooklyn, New York. This second office builds on the success of NextHome People First Realty’s first location in Charlotte, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 19th office location opened in New York for the NextHome franchise and the 585th NextHome office opened nationally.

The brokerage will serve clients across all five boroughs and in the counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Putnam. 

NextHome People First Realty is owned by Brooklyn native, MA Dudley. 

“We are excited to get things up and running,” Dudley said. “This is the perfect time to get mingling again and help people find the home of their dreams.”

Dudley first obtained his real estate license in 1992 in New York, but began actively buying and selling in 2014. In between those years, his passion for helping and serving people stemmed from serving in the United States Air Force before embarking on a long career in law enforcement. He has held multiple high security clearances while working for local and federal government agencies. Dudley brings his personal code of ethics, honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness to the real estate arena.

After dabbling in rehab properties, Dudley decided to try his hand at sales. 

“To my surprise, I realized that I loved sales,” Dudley said. “I loved the feeling of being able to help people find houses.”

Dudley started focusing on first-time home buyers while continuing to buy and rehab distressed properties in North Carolina. 

As his career evolved, Dudley knew that he wanted the financial flexibility of being his own boss. 

“I wanted to get real value out of the work I was putting in,” Dudley said. “So, I searched ‘real estate franchises’ online, NextHome came up, and the rest was history.”

In the fall of 2020, Dudley opened NextHome People First Realty’s Charlotte, North Carolina office. 

Dudley was thrilled to find a franchise that embraced the same people-first mindset he built his professional reputation on. 

“I really do love people,” Dudley said. “‘Humans over Houses’ is exactly my mindset. I named my brokerage People First Realty for a reason – not only will my clients know that I put people first, but my agents will also know that I truly see them as people too.”

An avid learner, Dudley can often be found in his spare time devouring educational videos. He is also a devoted father to his 17-year-old daughter, Taylor. He is a member of the Real Dads Network, an organization that exists to support fathers and strengthen families. 

Please join us in congratulating Dudley on the opening of NextHome People First Realty in Brooklyn, New York!

NextHome Luxury Realty opens in Lexington, Massachusetts

NextHome Luxury Realty opens in Lexington, Massachusetts

Sandeep Arora

Pleasanton, CA — June 17, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Luxury Realty, based in Lexington, Massachusetts. The brokerage represents the 12th office location opened in Massachusetts for the NextHome franchise and the 584th NextHome office opened nationally.

Centrally located just eight miles outside of Cambridge and 30 minutes northwest of Boston, NextHome Luxury Realty will serve clients across the eastern Massachusetts region. Areas of service include Winchester, Waltham, Woburn, Lincoln, Concord, Bedford, Medford, Malden, and Burlington. 

NextHome Luxury Realty is owned by Sandeep Arora, a real estate professional with a long history of excellence in customer service. 

Prior to real estate sales, Sandeep spent many years in the hospitality industry. He holds a master’s degree in hotel and restaurant management, from Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland which he used to develop a new standard of excellence as both a business owner and franchise trainer. 

Sandeep has a deep understanding of franchising. He has been a national trainer for a coffee company franchise as well as the owner of numerous Quiznos Sandwich franchises. 

However, Sandeep soon found that running many businesses all at once left him little time for family. In 2017, it was the right time for a career change. 

“Real estate has always excited me,” Sandeep said. “In addition to loving new construction and architecture, my skills perfectly fit in a career that thrived on providing hospitality and people-first service. The way we help clients requires a hospitality mindset, and because of those skills, I knew that I could be successful in real estate.”

Sandeep has been successful in real estate from the beginning. In his first year as an agent, he closed 13 transactions and did more than $8 million in sales. 

“It was my true care for my clients that helped build that level of business,” Sandeep said. “I really cared about making sure I was well-versed as an agent so that I could give the buyer and seller the best information. I came into each transaction fully prepared and that differentiated me from some of my competitors who didn’t take it as seriously.” 

Since obtaining his license in 2014, Sandeep has worked with both large national franchised brands and local independent brokerages. However, Sandeep knew that he could be successful on his own, and in 2021, circumstances aligned to make it the right time to open his own franchised brokerage. As Sandeep searched for the right franchise fit, NextHome stood out. 

“What stood out to me was the whole system and how much it offered,” Sandeep said. “What NextHome offers to brokers is unparalleled, the platform, training, and support. In addition to all that, I found the company leaders to be very nice and supportive. This is what you are looking for when you are starting a new venture.”

Today, Sandeep is building a brokerage of quality, committed agents who know that humans come before houses. 

“Our focus is the client, not the commission,” Sandeep said. “If you keep your attention focused on serving people the best you can, the financial success will take care of itself.” 

As NextHome Luxury Realty continues to grow, Sandeep is committed to breaking outside the industry mold. 

“NextHome Luxury Realty will grow with a small group of quality agents who are committed to their clients and offer excellent qualifications,” Sandeep said. “We emphasize quality service over the quantity of agents.”

When he isn’t building his brokerage or helping his clients, Sandeep enjoys exploring the outdoors by hiking, biking, traveling, and playing tennis with his family. He has been married to his wife Shilpi for 19 years and they are the parents of Arnav (15) and Viraaj (8).

Please join us in congratulating Sandeep on the opening of NextHome Luxury Realty in Lexington, Massachusetts!

Michelle Anderson

Pleasanton, CA — June 11, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Zenith, based in Freehold, New Jersey. The brokerage represents the 15th office location opened in New Jersey for the NextHome franchise and the 582nd NextHome office opened nationally.

Located about 45 minutes south of New York City, NextHome Zenith is poised to provide exceptional customer service to clients across Manalapan, Marlboro, Howell, Millstone, Jackson, Freehold, southern Middlesex County and the remainder of Monmouth and Ocean counties. 

NextHome Zenith is owned by Michelle Anderson – an experienced REALTOR® with a passion for offering excellent client experiences. 

Michelle began her career in real estate in 2004, working with a small regional independent brokerage. In 2006, she joined a nationally franchised brand where she excelled for the next 14 years. 

Michelle’s appreciation for her clients helped her become a high producer whose business is entirely referral based. 

“I am a people person,” Michelle said. “When clients work with me, I want them to have a great experience and know that I am there for them every step of the way. I want them to feel that it is OK to have whatever worries they have, big or small, knowing they can ask me about anything, and I will be there to answer.”

In 2020, Michelle discovered the NextHome difference and became an agent with NextHome Force Realty Partners. 

“NextHome was a new, innovative company and I really liked the brand,” Michelle said. “I really loved the company and what it was all about.”

Michelle soon obtained her broker’s license and continued to excel in real estate sales. 

As her career continued to evolve, Michelle knew she wanted to leave a legacy for her children and grandchildren by owning and building her own business. 

Today, Michelle is making that dream come true through NextHome Zenith. Under Michelle’s leadership, the brokerage is all about helping people make the best decisions for themselves and their families. 

“We are going to hold hands through the entire transaction for each of our clients,” Michelle said. “If they need help, someone will be there to help them, even if it’s just the need to cry, laugh, or get frustrated. We have a unique ability to help our clients feel calm.”

NextHome Zenith agents are focused on customer care, providing an emphasis on quality and a great experience. 

“This is not just a transaction,” Michelle said. “It’s the biggest transaction many people will make in their life, so it is important to give our clients the attention they deserve. Moving on from that it’s really about the people that we are working with. We care and we are all in to go above and beyond their expectations. Real estate is really about the person. We care and we are going to go above and beyond their expectations.”

Michelle is a highly credentialed REALTOR® with several NAR designations. She is a graduate of The REALTOR® Institute – a designation given only after hundreds of hours of intensive education. Only four percent of REALTORS® in the U.S. hold the designation. Michelle is also a Certified Residential Specialist, Accredited Staging Professional, and is obtaining her Luxury Designation through NAR. In addition, Michelle has been coached by Buffini & Company for more than 12 years. 

Outside the office, Michelle enjoys showing her clients her appreciation through events, parties, and an annual evening at the local AAA ballpark. 

She is the mother of two children Frank and Lauren, and together with her partner Fabio, Michelle enjoys travel, golf, hiking, spending time at the beach, cooking, fine wine, and relaxing with friends. 

Please join us in congratulating Michelle on the opening of NextHome Zenith in Freehold, New Jersey!

NextHome announces new Massachusetts brokerage

NextHome announces new Massachusetts brokerage

Dave Matthews

Pleasanton, CA — June 10, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Soundings Realty, based in Norfolk, Massachusetts. The brokerage represents the 11th office location opened in Massachusetts for the NextHome franchise and the 581st NextHome office opened nationally.

NextHome Soundings Realty will serve clients across Millis, Medfield, Medway, Franklin, North Attleboro, and the remainder of Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex counties. NextHome Soundings Realty connects with the area’s deep nautical roots, providing a trusted source where buyers and sellers can measure the depth of their local market and get reliable guidance on how to navigate the often-choppy waters of home buying and selling. 

NextHome Soundings Realty is owned by Dave Matthews, an experienced REALTOR® who brings an exceptional leadership and mentoring background to his new brokerage. 

Dave spent many years as a CPA as well as teaching as adjunct faculty at various area colleges. After his employer went out of business, Dave took the opportunity to go into real estate. Dave started his real estate career with Century 21 Commonwealth before opening his own independent brokerage: Soundings Realty. 

Throughout his years in real estate, Dave has developed expertise in investment properties, specifically flipping homes. He has completed several successful flips himself and looks forward to sharing that expertise with clients. 

As an independent broker/owner, Dave kept his office small for several years. However, as agents began to express increased interest in working with him, Dave knew it was time to partner with the right franchise. 

“I need to give my agents all the training and tools and marketing they could need to be really successful,” Dave said. “I started thinking about building all of these systems myself as an independent, but quickly realized that NextHome already had these things down to a science. I had seen the marketing around town, and it was love at first sight.”

In addition to the back-office support that NextHome provided, Dave was impressed by the company’s culture. 

“Everyone has such a positive and excited attitude toward the industry and each other,” Dave said of NextHome’s corporate culture. “The enthusiasm is visible from everyone. When you combine that enthusiasm with the company’s technologies and marketing products, NextHome is unparalleled.”

Today, Dave is building NextHome Soundings Realty the same way he built his real estate sales business: by being consistently available and attentive to both agents and clients.   

“I am going to be actively involved with all the agents in my office,” Dave said. “For any agent who is thinking they need a change from their existing brokerage, I would want to listen to what is making an agent unhappy, then point to what this franchise can do with its toolbox to remedy that.”

Outside the office, Dave has built a legacy of serving in his community. He is a member of the Norfolk Lions Club and volunteers his time and expertise in accounting to other nonprofits. Over the past years, the Norfolk Lions Club has sponsored community clean up drives, Christmas tree sale fundraisers, and helped numerous people with home projects – or even moving boxes and furniture into a new house. 

Dave also volunteers his time with his town’s local community theater. 

Dave will be celebrating 29 years of marriage to his wife Gina in September, and he is the father of three adult children: Ian, Rachel, and Justin. 

Please join us in congratulating Dave on the opening of NextHome Soundings Realty in Norfolk, Massachusetts!

Dorothy Loyal & Felecia Saunders

Pleasanton, CA — June 4, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Infinite Real Estate Solutions, based in Columbus, Georgia. The brokerage represents the eighth office location opened in Georgia for the NextHome franchise and the 580th NextHome office opened nationally.

The brokerage will serve all types of residential clients in Muscogee and Harris counties in Georgia, and Russell and Lee counties in Alabama.  

NextHome Infinite Real Estate Solutions is owned by Dorothy Loyal and Felecia Saunders – two dedicated REALTORS® with a heart for helping people with all of their real estate needs.

“We genuinely care about people, and we don’t just say it, we demonstrate it professionally,” Dorothy said. “We love being more than just an agent, but also a friend, showing our clients that we love what we are doing and love helping them to make the most important purchase they are going to make in their lives.”

Dorothy is NextHome Infinite Real Estate Solutions broker of record and Felecia is the brokerage’s agent/owner. 

Dorothy entered real estate in 2007 after serving 23 years in the U.S. Army. After a distinguished career serving in forward operating positions, leading companies of several hundred people, and serving in Iraq, Dorothy pursued her dream of joining the real estate industry. While attending real estate school, she met Felecia and the two remained great friends. 

Dorothy began working with Century 21 Premier Real Estate, where she built a reputation for honest, ethical service. 

Felecia has been working in real estate since 2007 while maintaining a dual career in the insurance industry. Despite working two jobs, Felecia excelled in real estate. In 2020, in the depths of a global pandemic, she was recognized as a member of her brokerage’s Million Dollar Club.

In 2020, Felecia retired from her insurance job to pursue real estate.

“Dorothy and I always thought we would do something together after I retired,” Felecia said. “Real estate has always been a passion for me and NextHome offered the right opportunity at the right time.”

The franchise provided the right mix of technology, tools, branding, support, and company culture. Both Dorothy and Felecia knew that this mix would help them provide unparalleled customer service. 

“Seeing that the company truly stands behind the concept of Humans over Houses was my ‘ah-ha moment’,” Felecia said. 

Today, NextHome Infinite Real Estate Solutions is providing values-driven service, backed by industry-leading technology and marketing. 

When not in the office, Felecia enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, and connecting with new people. She and her husband Russell have been married for 31 years and are the parents of two sons, Bryson and Brandon. 

Dorothy is an avid bowler who also enjoys cheering on her beloved Atlanta Hawks. She has been married for 36 years to Alfred and is mother to three daughters and grandmother to three children.
