Pleasanton, CA — December 31, 2017  NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Hale Realty. The brokerage represents the third location opened in Hawaii for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Waikiki on the island of Oahu, the company will be owned and operated by real estate broker and CEO, Jennifer Vinson. Joining her on the leadership team will be the Vice President of the company, Rich Lew.

NextHome Hale Realty will provide real estate services such as single family residential sales, first-time home buyers, multi-family properties, and investment sales to the entire island of Oahu with a focus on Waikiki and Honolulu.

With a population of just under one million residents, the island of Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands. The island is also home to the famous Diamond Head volcanic mountain range.

Originally from New York, Vinson moved to Oahu in 2003 and began her real estate career shortly after.

Starting with Century 21 Real Estate, Vinson steadily built her real estate business through personal relationships with veteran families who were relocating.

In 2008, she pivoted to help homeowners affected by the national recession. Whether it was helping homeowners modify their loan to stay in their home, assisting in short sales, or even helping resell properties for the bank through foreclosure, Vinson was the community resource for all things real estate.

Vinson attained her broker’s license in 2014 with the intention of someday opening her own brokerage. In mid-2017, that opportunity became a reality when she found the NextHome franchise.

“I was an owner and franchisee of a Curves fitness franchise and I understand the value of what a well-run franchise can do for a business,” said Vinson. “With everything NextHome provides the franchisee, there’s no doubt that our agents will be at the forefront of helping our sellers get the best service when listing with us.”

Vinson and Lew are excited about working with each other professionally for the first time. Engaged since March 2017, the couple are looking to grow the NextHome brand and add talented agents to their brokerage.

Vinson and Lew both enjoy traveling, at home and abroad. With Hawaii offering so many local cruises, they take advantage of everything the islands have to offer. Additionally, the couple will be traveling to several destinations in 2018 including Japan and Thailand.

Please join us in congratulating Jennifer, Rich and the rest of the team at NextHome Hale Realty on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Waikiki, HI!

Each office is an independently owned and operated business.

Pleasanton, CA— July 14, 2017 NextHome is proud to announce our latest addition to the franchise, NextHome KU Realty. The brokerage will represent the second NextHome franchise location opened in the state of Hawaii and will be owned and operated by 34-year veteran real estate broker, Keahi Pelayo.

Based out of Honolulu, NextHome KU Realty will provide residential real estate sales services to various areas throughout the island of Oahu including Honolulu, North Shore, Windward, East Oahu, and West Oahu.

The island of Oahu is the third largest island in the state of Hawaii and is home to nearly one million residents.

Originally from Maui, Pelayo started his real estate career in 1983 while living in California. During his ten years selling real estate in California, Pelayo focused on investment properties – particularly representing developers converting apartment complex into condominiums.

Moving back to Hawaii in 1991, he dove right into Oahu real estate after relocating to Honolulu. Quickly building his business, he became a top producing agent in his market. Starting with a local independent brokerage, Pelayo worked there for five years before making the move to RE/Max in 1995.

He originally joined as a top agent, but found an opportunity to be part of the ownership team of the RE/Max brokerage. As the broker for RE/Max Honolulu, Pelayo was able to sell real estate, while leading the office in agent growth and training.

NextHome is proud to announce expansion into the state of Hawaii with the addition of NextHome Pacific Properties.
Owned and operated by Principal Broker Steve Hogin and Vice President Rosie Hogin, NextHome Pacific Properties is dedicated to serving the needs of clients on the islands of Maui, Lāna`i, Moloka`i, and Hawai`i  .

The brokerage has been a staple of the Maui real estate community since 1984. For over 30 years, the office operated as an ERA Franchise office before making the switch to NextHome in January 2015.

With nearly 50 agents, the brokerage is poised for a significant increase in production and visibility in 2015. Over the past 12 months, NextHome Pacific Properties closed more than 120 transactions making it one of the most productive offices in the state of Hawaii.

With the assistance of Broker In Charge and head of the company’s social media Joe Hogin, the company prides itself on being a 100% family-owned business that treats all of its agents like extended members of the Hogin family.

“We believe in treating people with respect and I believe that’s why agents love working at our office,” said Steve Hogin. “It’s a family tradition that we incorporated into our business and I think it’s appreciated by all. We have agents that have been at our brokerage for over 30 years. Treating people fairly and like family is a win-win for everyone.”

After 30 years under the ERA franchise brand, it was NextHome’s forward-thinking and fresh approach to real estate that caught the eye of the Hogin family.
