NextHome Featured in Forbes

We’re ending the week with a bang over here at NextHome as our very own Chief Strategy Officer, Keith Robinson, was featured in Forbes’ ‘Seven Signs Your Local Real Estate Marketing Is Starting To Heat Up.’ The story touches on how vital it is to understand what a real estate market is trending toward, as it better positions both buyers and sellers for negotiations.

In the article, Keith speaks on the importance of inventory size when evaluating the market, while others address overpriced properties, development pace and days on market.

In case you missed it, check out Keith’s quote below:

Inventory Size

“Inventory is the strongest local indicator, in my opinion. That, crunched against the number of properties going pending each week, will give you a clear idea if the supply side of the equation is headed down or up. And that is massively correlative to the market direction. Secondarily, I also look at local job creation numbers. That is the demand side of the equation and can also impact the market.”

At NextHome, we’re all about real estate made modern. Interested in learning more about how we’re heating up the real estate market and leaving a lasting impact on the industry and our communities? Visit our homepage or contact us here!

Sylvia and Adam Myers

Pleasanton, CA — August 23, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome 180º Realty. The brokerage represents the fourth office location opened in the state of Georgia for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by husband and wife team, Sylvia and Adam Myers. Sylvia will be the broker of record and handling all day-to-day sales and agent leadership duties, while Adam will serve as the Operations Manager for the brokerage.

Based in Warner Robins, NextHome 180º Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, veteran and military relocation, and land deals for the cities of Warner Robins, Perry, Bonaire, Macon, Kathleen, Centerville, and the remainder of Houston, Bibb and Peach Counties.

The city of Warner Robins is located 90 minutes southeast of Downtown Atlanta and is home to approximately 70,000 residents. The city features Robins Air Force Base, which is the largest logistics Air Force Base in the southeast United States.

Sylvia is a graduate of Middle Georgia State University and holds degrees in both Business Management and Information Technology.

Licensed since 1997, Sylvia has been a longtime top-producing REALTOR® in Georgia. She worked for 3 years as a RE/MAX agent. In her first full year in real estate, she sold nearly $3 million in volume where the average sales price was $120,000 at the time.

In 2000, she opened Hometown Realty, where she was the broker/owner of the business. After building up a successful brokerage, she sold the company a few years later and moved to EXIT Realty where she served as the sales manager for the brokerage.

Sylvia met Adam in 2004 and the couple married in 2014. Adam is also a graduate of Middle Georgia State University and holds a degree in Psychology and Public Service. With Adam’s background and education, he is excited about leading the operations for the brokerage and helping agents be as productive as possible.

He is also the owner/operator of 180 Home Construction, which will provide inventory for the brokerage. Managing 20 to 30 rehab construction projects a year, Adam’s vast experience in construction will be a huge asset to the brokerage.

When Sylvia and Adam started the discussion of going out on their own, they had already kept an eye on the NextHome franchise for some time.

“I can say that I’ve been stalking NextHome for some time now,” said Sylvia with a laugh. “I loved the branding and saw how it resonates with the younger generation of home buyers and sellers.”

NextHome 180º Realty will be a community resource to not only help people buy and sell homes but offer information on the entire process. The agents will provide valuable education that will make their clients feel knowledgeable about the entire home buying and/or selling process.

Sylvia and Adam are committed to helping their community. They have participated in several Habitat for Humanity home builds and are very active within their church.

When not selling real estate, the two of them are very involved in the world of gaming. They are prominent online players of World of Warcraft and enjoy the online interaction with players from around the globe.

Sylvia is also an author and has a children’s book scheduled to be released in fall of 2018.

Please join us in congratulating Sylvia, Adam and the rest of the team at NextHome 180º Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Warner Robins, GA!

10 Reasons to Rekey Your Home

10 Reasons to Rekey Your Home

Whether you’re a new homeowner or have lived in your house for a while, your keys represent ownership of the property as well as security for your loved ones and your possessions. Being handed the keys to a new home is a big moment that signals the completion of your real estate transaction. Putting those keys into the lock and turning the knob for the first time as the owner is a great feeling. Or, at least it should be.

For many new and current homeowners, however, keys may be a source of unease, either because of valid reasons to rekey their home or questions about whether they should.

You might consider rekeying your home if:

  1. You’ve just purchased your home or are a current homeowner and aren’t sure how many key copies may be floating around (or who has them)
  2. You’ve lost track of how many key copies have been made and who’s in possession of them
  3. You’ve been the victim of a crime and had personal belongings taken, such as keys, your identification, your purse or wallet
  4. You’ve misplaced or lost your keys, wallet, purse, or backpack
  5. You’ve had a relationship status change
  6. A family member or friend has lost their copy of your key
  7. You’ve changed roommates or home service providers (such as a house keeper, babysitter, dog walker, etc.) who had a key copy or access to your keys
  8. You need or want to have identical keys that work for multiple keyholes
  9. You want to make sure that your home does not have a universal lock or keyhole that can be opened with a master key
  10. You’d like for a contractor to examine the lock cylinder for damage or wear during the rekey process

Tom Miesen

Pleasanton, CA — August 21, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Bayside Realty. The brokerage represents the 45th office location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker Tom Miesen and his wife, Lynette. Tom will be the broker of record and in charge of all day-to-day operations. They will be joined on the leadership team by business partners Ann Marie Kurz and Terry Adkins.

Based in Freeport, NextHome Bayside Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Freeport, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and the surrounding areas of Walton and Okaloosa Counties.

Freeport is located in the “panhandle” section of the state of Florida and is approximately two hours west of Tallahassee.

Licensed since 1979, Tom has been a longtime top-producing REALTOR® in Northwest Florida. Since 2005, he has been selling an average of $8 million annually. He had ownership in a local nationally franchised office for nearly 12 years before connecting with another group of high-producing and talented REALTORS®.

“I connected with Dana and Eric Topel who are based out of Niceville, Florida,” said Tom. “Eric was exploring a new franchise at the same time I was looking for a new way of doing business. I wanted a change in the culture and wanted a franchise that would bring a lot of value to our agents.”

“I love leading others and want to make sure any brokerage I’m affiliated with have productive and competent agents,” he added. “I was fortunate to connect with the Topels and we launched our NextHome brokerage in 2016.”

After two years under the NextHome system, Tom saw the benefits of what NextHome could do for agents and brokers alike. In Spring 2018, Tom and Lynette felt it was the right time to go out on their own.

“NextHome Bayside Realty is one of the only nationally franchised brokerages in the city of Freeport,” said Tom. “It’s the tools and systems we will be able to offer our clients that is a big differentiator than some of our competitors.”

Tom gives back to the real estate community as well. He is serving his second year as a Director for Florida REALTORS®. He also is the 2018 Treasurer for the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS® (ECAR). Tom is currently running for the 2019 Vice President for ECAR.

Tom and Lynette have been married for 40 years and have four children and three grandchildren. They love to travel and recently took a trip to New Mexico earlier this year.

Please join us in congratulating Tom, Lynette, Ann, Terry, and the rest of the team at NextHome Bayside Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Freeport, FL!

NextHome Premier Homes Realty opens in Humble, Texas

NextHome Premier Homes Realty opens in Humble, Texas

(From left to right) Rita Zarghami, Keyvan Zarghami, and Virgie Green

Pleasanton, CA — August 17, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Premier Homes Realty. The brokerage represents the 20th office location opened in the state of Texas for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker Rita Zarghami. Rita will be the broker of record and in charge of all day-to-day operations. She will be joined on the leadership team by her husband, Keyvan, and Virgie Calligan-Green. Keyvan will serve as the Vice President of Operations for the brokerage, while Virgie will be the Office Manager.

Based in Humble, NextHome Premier Homes Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Humble, Lake Houston, Atascocita, Kingwood, Crosby, Porter, Huffman, North Channel, and the surrounding areas of Northeast Houston.

Humble is located 20 minutes north of Downtown Houston and is home to approximately 20,000 residents.

Licensed since 1994, Rita has been a longtime top-producing REALTOR® in the Houston area. After nearly ten years of high-volume sales, Rita opened her own brokerage in 2003 – Red Stone Realty LLC.

Under her leadership, she built the brokerage with talented agents to see annual sales in excess of $25 million. Additionally, Keyvan also opened a mortgage company, 1st Community Mortgage Group, concurrent with the opening of the real estate brokerage. The mortgage company was just as successful with more than $20 million in volume annually.

During the recession in the late 2000’s, Houston and surrounding areas were hit extremely hard. Pivoting to adjust to the market conditions, Rita agreed to take over as the Sales Manager for the local Humble Century 21 brokerage, while still actively producing as a selling REALTOR®. Managing 20 agents, Rita guided the brokerage to a very productive office in the midst of an extremely challenging financial time for the state of Texas.

In 2013, Rita went back to running her own brokerage. Changing the brokerage name to Premier Homes, she grew the company to 1o REALTORS® and a large portfolio of listings. But Rita knew she needed more to provide to her agents.

“At the end of 2017, I was approached by several local franchisees about merging with their companies,” said Rita. “I really didn’t have any interest in doing that. I personally went out to seek what was available out there to provide more value for our agents.”

After doing her own research and sharing the info with Keyvan, the Zarghamis reached out to NextHome and spoke with NextHome’s VP of Sales, Charis Moreno.

“I was really excited about the NextHome franchise and what the company had to offer Premier Homes,” she added. “I continued to research other companies, but all roads led back to NextHome.”

Rita says the NextHome Premier Realty difference stems from the company’s five core values: Spiritual, Family, Business, Financial, and Personal.

“We truly treat our clients as people and not just a sale,” said Rita. “We want to build deep relationships with the families in our community. Our agents are client-focused and hold the highest standards. Ethics and honesty are key to earning the trust of our clients and community.”

When not selling real estate, Rita and Keyvan look forward to spending time with their family. They have three children – daughter Akila, and two sons – Jeremiah and Keyvan Keyanoosh. They also have five grandchildren – Joshua, Jacob, Isabela, Kaiden, and Jackson.

Rita loves to cook for the family, while Keyvan is a Corvette enthusiast and attends as many car shows as possible.

Please join us in congratulating Rita, Keyvan, Virgie, and the rest of the team at NextHome Premier Homes Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Humble, TX!

NextHome Greater Realty is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

NextHome Greater Realty is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

Buz and Linda Berson

Pleasanton, CA — August 15, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Greater Realty. The brokerage represents the 44th office location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Buz and Linda Berson. Buz will serve as the broker of record and supervise agent production. Linda will be in charge of the sales division and training for the brokerage. They will be joined on the leadership team by their son, Bailey Kapci. He will serve as the Director of Operations for NextHome Greater Realty.

Based in Punta Gorda, NextHome Greater Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, and the surrounding areas.

Punta Gorda is located 30 minutes north of Fort Myers and is home to approximately 20,000 residents. The name Punta Gorda translates to “Fat Point” and has been an incorporated city since the mid-1800’s.

A serial entrepreneur, Buz has been running successful businesses for decades. Formerly the owner of the largest outdoor furniture store in the United States, Buz has been involved in real estate since 1980. He spent most of the 1980’s as a commercial real estate developer. In 1986, he started his own residential property development company, Berson Property Developments.

Linda joined as the leasing manager for Berson Property Developments and headed up that entire division.

Opening Berson Properties in the early 1990’s, the Bersons grew the residential real estate brokerage to more than 25 agents with annual sales in excess of $100 million. In 2007, they sold the company to a Century 21 franchisee and relocated their family to the area of Naples, FL.

Never one to rest and retire, Buz began building high-end homes in the Naples area. With square footage exceeding 4,000 feet, these high-end homes were in demand for the residents of Naples. From 2015 to 2017, as fast as Buz built them, Linda sold them equally as fast.

While they were doing very well, the Bersons wanted more to offer to their clientele.

“We wanted to integrate modern technology to what we could offer our clients,” said Buz. “We wanted to have that edge to provide better service to our clients.”

“We interviewed several different real estate franchises,” added Linda. “But only NextHome provided us with the difference we were looking for.”

Bailey will add a new dimension to the brokerage as well. Spending the last 13 years in high-level restaurant management, his leadership and management skills will maintain a standard of customer service for NextHome Greater Realty that will be a real difference in their community.

When not selling real estate, the Bersons enjoy a life of what they describe as “simple abundance.” The married couple of 28 years spend time with their poodle, Rose, and take in all the wonderful amenities Punta Gorda has to offer.

Bailey and his wife, Paris, describe themselves as “foodies” and love exploring new restaurants whenever they travel. As a former restaurant General Manager, Bailey knows and appreciates when a restaurant can deliver beyond expectations.

Please join us in congratulating Buz, Linda, Bailey, and the rest of the team at NextHome Greater Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Punta Gorda, FL!

NextHome Leading Edge is the newest NextHome location

NextHome Leading Edge is the newest NextHome location

Travis Ploman (left) and Bryan Loveland

Pleasanton, CA — August 9, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Leading Edge. Business partners Travis Ploman and Bryan Loveland will be the owners and operators of the brokerage. The company represents the eighth office location opened in the state of Wisconsin for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Leading Edge will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, multi-family, veteran and military buyers, and land deals for all areas of Rothschild, Wausau, Weston, Schofield, Mosinee, and the remainder of Marathon County.

Located approximately 100 miles west of Green Bay, the village of Rothschild has a population of just over 5,000 residents and is located in the heart of Marathon County.

Licensed since 2012, Travis started his career with Coldwell Banker Action Realty in Schofield, Wisconsin. As a solo agent, Travis earned Rookie of the Year honors for the company, selling a house a month for his first year. He steadily built his business over the next four years and had a high of 80 transaction sides closed in 2017.

Bryan joined Coldwell Banker Action Realty in 2017 after 19 years of running his own contracting company, Northern Exteriors LLC.

Travis mentored Bryan through his first year of the business and the two found themselves to be a great team together.

With business booming for Travis, he saw an opportunity to work as a team with Bryan and it sparked their interest of opening their own brokerage.

“Travis is a tech-savvy agent who really understands the needs of his clients,” said Bryan. “I learned a lot from him as my real estate mentor and we get along very well. He’s a great person to be in business with.”

“Bryan is a relatable, honest and trustworthy agent who leaves a positive impression with everyone he comes in contact with,” said Travis.

With Travis’ book of business and Bryan’s management background, they looked at 2018 as the perfect time to start their new company.

“We wanted to open a brokerage but knew we would be looking at a franchise model to help us put together the tools we needed to build on our business,” said Travis. “We heard about NextHome and did research on the company. Including finding out about the company through the first NextHome franchisee in Wisconsin, Randy Lenz.”

“After thorough research, we knew NextHome was the best fit for our brokerage model,” he added.

When not selling real estate, Travis and Bryan enjoy spending time with their families.

Travis has an 18-year-old son, Jordan, and they like to do water activities such as boating and water sports such as wakeboarding, skiing and tubing. Travis also volunteers as the audio/visual tech at Christ Community Church.

Bryan and his wife of 21 years, Vicky, have four children – Benjamin (19), Megan (16), Luke (14), and Katelyn (11). Like Travis, they like doing water sports. Bryan enjoys hunting and fishing as well. For the past eight years, Bryan has coached with the local youth football league.

Please join us in congratulating Travis, Bryan and the rest of the team at NextHome Leading Edge on the opening of their new NextHome office in Rothschild, WI!

NextHome Real Estate Dogs opens in Orange County, California

NextHome Real Estate Dogs opens in Orange County, California

Jerry Salyers

Pleasanton, CA — August 7, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Real Estate Dogs. Thirty-year real estate veteran Jerry Salyers will be the owner and operator for the brokerage. The company represents the 58th office location opened in the state of California for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Real Estate Dogs will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, and investment properties to the areas of Irvine, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, and the remainder of Orange County.

The city of Irvine is a master-planned community developed by the private real estate development company, The Irvine Company. They started building in the 1960’s and by 1971, the community was formally incorporated as a city. Irvine has a population of just over 260,000 residents.

Licensed since the 1980’s, Jerry has done it all in the real estate industry. From owning a mortgage company to working for a new home builder to providing a development company consulting work for apartment and condo conversions, Jerry has seen most anything in real estate.

Since 2016, Jerry has owned and operated Salyers Home Design & Staging, a staging consulting business. Staging over 30 properties a year, Salyers Home Design & Staging mainly helps new home builders set their new homes to make buyers fall in love with the floor plans and layouts.

Over the past two years, Jerry had expanded his business to not only serve new home builders, but REALTORS® in the area as well. Realizing some agents could improve on the marketing of their listings, Jerry saw an opportunity he would like to be a part of.

“I’ve worked with agents marketing homes and business prospecting for some time now,” said Jerry. “I see what they could be doing better and how a brokerage with support to help these agents could really do well in our local market.”

Jerry first found NextHome like many brokers do – via REALTOR® Magazine and the Franchise Comparison Report. After further research, he contacted NextHome’s VP of Sales, Charis Moreno, and found her leadership approach and non-pressure attitude to be a refreshing difference in a world of pushy salespeople.

Although Jerry found NextHome to be the right fit for his brokerage, he was not always a fan of franchises.

“Previous to partnering with NextHome, I found franchises to block creativity of the business,” said Jerry. “But after researching NextHome and seeing the focus on great looking marketing as well as the completeness of the brokerage services, I think the franchise is unique to real estate.”

“NextHome has done what I would have done if I started my own franchise,” he added with a laugh.

Born and raised in Southern California, Jerry is a father to three daughters in their thirties – Katherine, Lauren and Stephanie. He enjoys golfing and going to sporting events, especially football. He describes himself as a huge Denver Broncos fan. Jerry is also an accomplished screenwriter and poet and has several projects in development.

Please join us in congratulating Jerry and the rest of the team at NextHome Real Estate Dogs on the opening of their new NextHome office in Irvine, CA!

NextHome City Realty opens second location in Michigan

NextHome City Realty opens second location in Michigan

Paul Mychalowych

Pleasanton, CA — August 3, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome City Realty – Detroit Branch. This is the second location for owner, Paul Mychalowych. The brokerage represents the tenth office location opened in the state of Michigan for the NextHome franchise.

As a 14-year real estate veteran, Mychalowych is one of the top-producing REALTORS® in the area. He will also serve as the broker-of-record for the company.

NextHome City Realty – Detroit Branch will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, luxury, short sales, probate sales, and land deals for all areas of Wayne County including the Grosse Pointe Markets as well as every city up the Woodward Corridor to NextHome City Realty’s Birmingham Location.

With a population of just over 4.3 million residents, the city of Detroit is the largest in the state of Michigan. In 2018, Detroit’s economy has seen a huge boost as many of the neighborhoods affected by the 2008 recession are now beginning to stabilize. With a 30% increase in average sales price in the past 12 months, and a successful launch in March 2018 of his first location in Birmingham, MI, Mychalowych felt it was the right time to expand his business into a second location.

“In the last five years, we have seen an influx of Millennial buyers coming into the downtown Detroit area,” said Mychalowych. “There has been a significant boost in housing developments and investments coming from all over the world.”

“With our unique collaborative work environment, we want to be a part of this community as the real estate resource as it continues its growth as one of the fastest growing cities in the nation,” he added. “With offices spanning from Detroit all the way up to Birmingham we can service all the growing communities in between. We have extensive knowledge of these markets and can hopefully help contribute to Detroit’s resurgence, which in turn will filter out into the surrounding areas.”

Before Mychalowych began his real estate career, he spent years as an electrical engineer. As the owner of Advanced Systems & Designs Inc., Mychalowych led a large staff of software and hardware engineers, and a nationwide sales organization including a global network of distributors. He sold the business in 2012.

In 2009, after years as a top-producing REALTOR®, Mychalowych decided to open his own brokerage, Birmingham Realty LLC, in downtown Birmingham.  As the broker of a successful office, Mychalowych did not rest on his laurels.

In 2017, in addition to running a brokerage of associates, Mychalowych closed 64 transactions in excess of $18 million and the brokerage had $26 million in sales volume.

Mychalowych had many reasons behind his decision to partner with NextHome.

“I wanted to provide more value to our agents with better branding, additional technology, technology leveraged training, and tools that would help them save time and make more money,” said Mychalowych.

In addition, “it just made good business sense to not reinvent the wheel and create all this stuff on my own.”

As he was researching franchise options, he was specifically looking for a company that provided a plug and play option that was affordable, yet provided a lot of value.

“NextHome City Realty will bring the features of an office of tomorrow to today’s buyers and sellers,” said Mychalowych. “We have a consumer-centric brand and I value a commitment to education for both our clients and our agents.”

Mychalowych said NextHome City Realty is just the beginning of the expansion of his office footprint. “I see us growing throughout the Detroit area very soon,” added Mychalowych.

When not selling real estate, Mychalowych focuses on family. The Mychalowych’s have been married for 27 years and have two children – daughters Madison (age 18) and Brooklyn (15). The family enjoys spending time relaxing at their lakefront home and in Northern Michigan.

Please join us in congratulating Paul and the rest of the team at NextHome City Realty on the opening of their second new NextHome office in Downtown Detroit, MI!

NextHome Real Estate Executives opens in West Palm Beach

NextHome Real Estate Executives opens in West Palm Beach

Pleasanton, CA — August 2, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Real Estate Executives. The brokerage represents the 43rd office location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

Owned and operated by veteran top-producing REALTOR® James Madalone, NextHome Real Estate Executives will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment properties, luxury homes and estates, vacation homes, second homes, ocean front properties, relocation, commercial properties, new construction townhouses, condos, and land deals for the cities of West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Manalapan, Boynton Beach, Jupiter, Wellington. Boca Raton, Hollywood Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the counties of St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, and Broward. James will continue to be licensed in New Jersey.

The city of West Palm Beach is located 70 miles north of Miami and is home to just over 100,000 residents. Considered part of the Miami metro area, surrounding areas have a total population of approximately 5.5 million people.
With over three decades in the real estate industry, James has seen his share of success. He started his career in 1988 in Central New Jersey at a small independent office.

James has always been one of the top REALTORS® in the area. He has averaged a sale a week for more than 30 years – consistently ranking him in the top 1% of agents in the entire state of New Jersey.

James credits his success to his consistent commitment to education and taking as many training courses as he could. Attending conferences by Les Brown, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie, and many other sales and personal development coaches.

“I remember starting my career with a $10 roll of dimes and a beeper,” said James with a laugh. “No computers and a book of listings four inches thick. Making those phone calls from telephone booths to where I am today, it has been quite an amazing journey.”

Like many Northeastern residents, James and his wife also owned a property in Florida. As he moves into the broker/owner phase of his career, James and his wife, Christine, felt it was best to make the move to Florida full time to focus on NextHome Real Estate Executives.

Christine holds a degree in digital marketing and will be responsible for promoting the office. She is also a licensed home stager and REALTOR®.

James’ commitment to helping others is far reaching.

“I’ve been fortunate to have had success in real estate due to hard work and guidance of others,” said James. “I want to make myself available to help as many people in our industry. Being a part of the NextHome franchise connects me with all types of agents from around the country and I’d love to be a resource for any NextHome agent who would like some help or guidance.”

In addition to being a top-producing REALTOR®, James has traveled the country as a motivational speaker and has taught and presented for thousands of people around the world. With talks encompassing real estate, personal development, and various other topics, he brings an unmatched enthusiasm that cannot be ignored.

“Every time I interact with James, I always end the conversation with a smile on my face,” said NextHome’s Vice President of Sales, Charis Moreno. “James has been a wonderful addition to our company and I love the positive energy he brings to NextHome.”

Please join us in congratulating James and the rest of the team at NextHome Real Estate Executives on the opening of their new NextHome office in West Palm Beach, FL!
