NextHome Arrowsmith Realty opens in Apopka, Florida

Natalie Arrowsmith

Pleasanton, CA — October 26, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Arrowsmith Realty. The brokerage represents the 47th location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Arrowsmith Realty will be owned and operated by broker and top-producing REALTOR® Natalie Arrowsmith. As a fourth generation Apopkan, Natalie is proud to bring the NextHome franchise to her community. Her father, Bill Arrowsmith, served as the Vice Mayor for the city for decades. Natalie is proud to continue service to the Apopka community for the Arrowsmith family.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single family residential sales, first-time home buyers, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, commercial, second home and vacation home purchases, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Mount Dora, and the rest of Lake, Seminole and Orange Counties.

Located 15 northwest of Downtown Orlando, Apopka is home to approximately 42,000 residents. Considered part of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metropolitan area, Apopka is in the heart of a 2.1 million resident metro area.

Before real estate, Natalie worked for several years at the Florida League of Cities, an organization focused on promoting local self-government. From 1999-2004, Natalie served several roles within the organization, with her primary role as the Policy Holder Relations Manager.

In late 2004, Natalie moved to North Carolina and started her real estate career with Century 21 Real Estate in the city of Waynesville. At that time, many Floridians were purchasing investment properties in North Carolina and Natalie was able to represent many of these investors.

After several very successful years selling in North Carolina, Natalie moved back to Apopka and worked at RE/MAX from 2008 until 2010. During those three years, she grew her business with traditional sales and the addition of foreclosure/short sales to see more than 100 transaction sides closed annually – making her one of the top agents in her area.

In 2010, Natalie opened her own brokerage – Arrowsmith Realty. Knowing the increase in her business and the needs of her clients, she took it upon herself to open a brokerage that would provide the level of service her clients had come to expect. Under Natalie’s leadership, she grew the company to 11 agents.

While not originally looking to franchise her office, Natalie’s desire to always provide world-class service led her to look at NextHome.

“We were a successful boutique brokerage that served our clients well, but I wanted to be able to provide even more,” said Natalie. “Not just for our clients, but for the Arrowsmith Realty agents as well.”

Introduced to NextHome in 2017 by friend and NextHome franchisee, Paige Brewer, Natalie was interested in the company because of the fresh branding and the fun, forward-thinking way of doing business.

“NextHome Arrowsmith Realty will be known as the company where agents will be able to provide the very best in technology, tools and marketing for their clients, wrapped up in a fun environment,” said Natalie. “Our commitment to the community will be a huge part of who we are.”

Natalie gives back to the real estate industry as well. She is the 2018 Secretary for the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association and will serve as Treasurer in 2019. She has been on the Board of Directions for her local association for the past four years.

Through her involvement in the Women’s Council of REALTORS® for the past five years, Natalie has made a real impact on the Florida real estate community. At the national level, she will serve as NAR Director in 2019.

When not selling real estate, Natalie is all about family. She and her fiancée, Mark, are getting married May 2019. Between them, they have four children – sons Cody (28) and Luke (9); and daughters Cassidy (22) and Lily (7). She also has a granddaughter, one-year-old Ava Rose.

Please join us in congratulating Natalie and the rest of the team at NextHome Arrowsmith Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Apopka, FL!

NextHome Brandywine is the Newest NextHome Brokerage

NextHome Brandywine is the Newest NextHome Brokerage

(clockwise from top right) Pete O’Brien, Mike Schmidt, Dan Pizzi and Vince Tallercio

Pleasanton, CA — October 19, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Brandywine. The brokerage represents the eighth location opened in the state of Pennsylvania for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Brandywine will be owned and operated by business partners Dan Pizzi, Mike Schmidt, Pete O’Brien, and Vince Taliercio. Dan will be the managing partner handling the day-to-day operations for the brokerage. Mike will be in charge of all financials and compliance issues. Pete will be responsible for business development and public relations for the company, while Vince will serve as the broker of record.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Downingtown, West Chester, Coatesville, Pottstown and the counties of Delaware, Chester, Bucks, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.

The relationships formed back in 2004 when Dan and Pete worked together in the telecommunications industry at MCI WorldCom. For three years they worked at the company with Dan as a Project Manager and Pete handling sales.

As the market changed with the economic downturn in 2007, Dan pivoted towards home sales with his family’s background in the real estate industry. His cousin owned a Century 21 office, so Dan started selling real estate part time.

In 2013, Dan and Pete reunited once again at Communications Test Design Inc. The friends worked together for two years before they were caught in another round of downsizing.

“After being part of another round of layoffs, I knew that I was ready to take control of my own destiny and get into real estate full time,” said Dan.

From 2016 to 2018, both Pete and Dan worked at Weichert Real Estate. Working their sphere of influence and using sales skills from their previous career, the partners did very well and were two of the better selling REALTORS® in the area.

After two years of selling as agents at a brokerage, Dan and Pete were ready to go out on their own and open their real estate company.

“We had the opportunity to purchase an existing brokerage, but after exploring all of our options, NextHome was the right fit for our new brokerage,” said Pete.

In 2011, Dan met Vince who was looking to open his own office at that time. They stayed in touch over the years. When it came time to open NextHome Brandywine, Dan reached out to have Vince be the broker of record.

“Vince has the well-rounded knowledge of not only the real estate compliance, but also how to manage a business,” said Dan. “Vince is skilled in multiple ways that will be huge in helping out our company.”

“With Mike, we have a business partner with an attention to detail like no other,” added Dan. “His strength is providing business insight into our brokerage unlike anyone else I know. Just his thought process brings a level that really charts the course for NextHome Brandywine.”

Please join us in congratulating Dan, Pete, Mike, Vince, and the rest of the team at NextHome Brandywine on the opening of their new NextHome office in Downingtown, PA!

NextHome Central Realty Opens an Office in Lake Mary, Florida

NextHome Central Realty Opens an Office in Lake Mary, Florida

Roger Michaels

Pleasanton, CA — October 16, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Central Realty. The brokerage represents the 47th location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Central Realty will be owned and operated by top-producing REALTOR®/Broker Roger Michaels. The brokerage of nine agents will be based out of Lake Mary, which is located 20 minutes north of Orlando.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the areas of Lake Mary, Sanford, Winter Springs, Winter Park, Longwood, Oviedo, and the rest of the Greater Orlando Area.

Roger started real estate in 2012 after years of owning a car dealership with his brother. As part owner of Michael’s Autos, Roger was in charge of all sales and marketing for the dealership. The strong internet marketing and lead generation skills he learned through car sales have been a great advantage for Roger in the real estate marketing world.

In his first year in real estate, Roger sold 25 transactions and his business only got stronger year-over-year.

In 2015, he opened R Michaels Realty and used his online marketing savvy to grow his sales numbers. From 2015 to 2017, Roger grew his business over 25% annually to more than 40 transaction sides.

In 2018, he has built his business to be on pace to close more than 60 transaction sides.

Earlier this year, Roger was looking for a solution that allowed him to grow his boutique brand to one that would attract quality agents to work alongside him.

“I knew there had to be a solution out there for a brokerage like mine,” said Roger. “NextHome was the answer for our brokerage.”

By not having to reinvent the wheel, combining his brokerage strengths with NextHome’s franchise platform has proven to be a great match for everyone involved.

“Having NextHome’s high-level of technology in addition to our brokerage’s strong internet lead generation, I’m really excited about what NextHome Central Realty is poised to do for our community,” said Roger.

When not selling real estate, Roger and his wife of 17 years, Rachele, are raising two boys – Gavin (age 15) and Gabriel (age 12). The family loves to travel and often takes trips to visit the boys’ grandparents in Indiana.

Please join us in congratulating Roger and the rest of the team at NextHome Central Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Lake Mary, FL!

NextHome Grand opens two locations in Colorado

Nathalie Ames (left), Ross Beede, and Eileen Turner (right)

Pleasanton, CA — October 11, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our two newest additions to the franchise, NextHome Grand (Mesa) and NextHome Grand (Grand Junction). The brokerages represent the 10th and 11th locations opened in the state of Colorado for the NextHome franchise.

The two brokerages will be owned and operated by business partners Nathalie Ames, Eileen Turner and Ross Beede. All three partners have been top-producing agents in their markets and will each have specific roles within the company.

Nathalie will be the managing broker for both locations with Ross and Eileen switching off as the managing broker in 2019 and 2020. This strategy will allow each owner to focus on their personal business while the acting managing broker can focus on growing the company and providing guidance for agents at the company.

NextHome Grand’s two locations will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, luxury homes, farm and ranch properties, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers.

The offices will service Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Loma, Mack, Clifton, De Beque, Mesa, Molina, Collbran, Parachute, Rifle, Silt, Glenwood Springs, and the remainder of Mesa County.

With a combined experience of more than 40 years in the real estate industry, Ross and Eileen have been a top-producing team since 2015. Working with buyers and sellers in addition to projects such as real estate developments and investment properties, The Turner/Beede Team sold more than 90 transactions in 2017.

A third-generation REALTOR®, Nathalie started her real estate career in 1996 in Chicago, Illinois. For nearly 20 years, Nathalie sold an average of $13 million annually and was one of the top-producing agents in the area. When she relocated to Mesa, Colorado, she picked up right where she left off, selling real estate at a high level. In 2017, Nathalie sold 27 homes to the tune of $11 million in volume.

Nathalie was introduced to NextHome in January 2018 and came to the NextHome Conference held in San Diego, California in March 2018.

“When I went to San Diego and saw NextHome up close and personal, I loved the newer company with a management team open to new ideas with an eye on the future of our industry,” said Nathalie. “I love the idea of partnering not only with business partners who I respect like Eileen and Ross, but with a franchise that has leaders who have real estate knowledge, experience and a stellar reputation.”

When it came time to consider opening a NextHome office, the business partners were no strangers to owning their own companies.

Ross opened his own real estate brokerage, Grand Junction Real Source, in 2001. As the broker/owner of that office, he grew the company to nearly 30 agents. He merged the office with a nationally franchised office in 2008 and stayed on as the manager for the office for the next four years.

Not only is Nathalie a top-producing agent, but she is also the owner of Blink Coffee Company, a success full-service coffee shop, bar and restaurant.

When Eileen and Ross joined Nathalie at NextHome’s corporate office for a week of training classes for new franchisees, they had a similar experience.

“NextHome is a fresh, innovative and progressive company with a corporate staff eager to help our agents,” said Ross. “I really like the energy from the team and I’m excited about what the future holds for NextHome Grand.”

“It’s always been my dream to open and launch a business that I could own and be proud of,” said Eileen. “I know that with our team and our specific strengths, we will be able to really provide a brokerage with excellent service for our communities and also give agents a company they will be proud to work at.”

Please join us in congratulating Nathalie, Eileen, Ross and the rest of the team at NextHome Grand on the opening of their two new NextHome offices in Grand Junction and Mesa, CO!

NextHome Moves is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

NextHome Moves is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

Kerri and Gordon Woodson

Pleasanton, CA — September 28, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Moves. The brokerage represents the eighth location opened in Tennessee for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker and top-selling REALTOR® Kerri Woodson. Kerri will handle all day-to-day operations and will serve as the principal broker for the company. She will be joined on the leadership team by her husband, Gordon. With over 20 years of experience as a contractor, Gordon will bring his knowledge of construction and housing development to the firm. He will also handle all technology support and web development for NextHome Moves.

Based in Clarksville, NextHome Moves will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, multi-family, new construction, land purchase and acquisition, and veteran relocation services in Clarksville, Springfield, Pleasant View, and the remainder of Cheatham, Robertson and Montgomery counties.

Clarksville is the fifth largest city in the state of Tennessee. With a population of just over 150,000, Clarksville is located 40 minutes northwest of Nashville near the Tennessee/Kentucky state border line.

Kerri started her real estate career in 2010 with a local Prudential Realty in Clarksville. Doing well in selling homes for the first three years as a REALTOR®, Kerri made the move to Coldwell Banker Real Estate.

In 2016, Kerri was introduced to the NextHome franchise at about the same time she opened her own real estate brokerage. That year, she opened Millwood Real Estate and focused on creating a company that would help agents bring real value to their clients. Although she stayed in contact with NextHome’s Vice President of Sales, Charis Moreno, Kerri felt right about staying as an independent brokerage at that time.

“Opening my own brokerage was an exciting opportunity, but I also wanted to make sure I continued building on my skills as a broker so I could lead others effectively,” said Kerri. “By focusing on improving as a broker, I felt I could provide insight and guidance to agents who were looking for a place to work where they could excel.”

Gordon’s construction business, Woodson Construction, brought a unique advantage to the company as well. As a contractor who built as many as 15 homes a year, Gordon created inventory for Millwood Real Estate to list and sell. Having this inventory to sell gave the agents at the brokerage a significant advantage with these newly constructed homes available for them to hold open houses and draw in potential buyers.

In 2018, Kerri felt it was time to grow the brokerage and decided to open up discussions again with Charis.

“When it came time to offer more to agents at our brokerage, I found NextHome to be the right franchise to partner with, said Kerri. “With the progressive technology platform and the relatable leadership team, we love the support of NextHome. We feel like we are in business with people who want to help us be the very best.”

Kerri describes the NextHome Moves difference as a company with great culture and an atmosphere of learning to be great businessmen and businesswomen. The brokerage will also create and maintain standards and systems that will make the agents successful.

Kerri and Gordon have been married for 25 years and have two children. Their oldest son, Colton (age 18), is attending college in St. Louis, Missouri at Maryville University and is in the MBA program of Sports Business Management. Their youngest son, Brody (age 16), is a high school junior who plays for the school’s football team.

Please join us in congratulating Kerri, Gordon and the rest of the team at NextHome Moves on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Clarksville, TN!

NextHome All American is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

NextHome All American is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

Teresa Saraco Cole

Pleasanton, CA — September 26, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome All American. The brokerage represents the 47th location opened in Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker and second-generation REALTOR® Teresa Saraco Cole. As the CEO/Owner of the company, Teresa will handle all day-to-day operations, as well as all training for the agents. She will be joined on the leadership team by Codie Tennant who will serve as the Agent Relationship Manager. Codie will be responsible for onboarding all agents and will help them with marketing and business development.

Based in DeBary, NextHome All American will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, multi-family, land, new construction, condos, second homes, vacation homes, retiree services, and veteran relocation services in DeBary, Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, DeLand, Orange City, Deltona, Osteen, Sanford, Lake Mary, Longwood, and the remainder of North Orlando Area.

DeBary is a suburb community located 20 miles north of Orlando. Home to nearly 20,000 residents, DeBary is part of the Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach Metropolitan Area.

Teresa started in real estate in 1996 while working for her parents, Joe and Maria Saraco, at their brokerage, Choice Properties Inc. As a 17-year-old, Teresa wrote real estate ads, took photos of properties and delivered MLS books.

Teresa got her real estate license in 2002 and worked as a sales and leasing agent for a local new home builder. As her parents moved the brokerage from an independent to a Century 21 franchisee, Teresa came back in 2002 to manage the brokerage. At 23, she was one of the youngest real estate managers in the area.

In 2006, she moved to the state of Texas for school. In 2009, Teresa started her own massage therapy business.

Three years later, she returned to Florida and opened her own massage therapy clinic – Avalon Massage and Body Works. Running a successful business was very rewarding, but in 2013, she was asked to help the family once again.

“I really enjoyed owning my own company, but the physical demands of massage therapy coupled with the opportunity to keep the family brokerage going meant it was the right time for me to return to real estate,” said Teresa. “My parents have given me so much, I could never repay them. It was important to come back and help them in any way I could.”

Not only did Teresa manage the brokerage, but she sold homes too. Selling more than $4 million dollars annually (in a market with an average sales price of $160,000), Teresa practiced what she preached.

While still managing, as well as moving into active sales, Teresa began her involvement with the Women’s Council of REALTORS®. She first served as the Women’s Council of REALTORS® – Volusia Area President in 2016.

In 2017, she was recognized by the West Volusia Association of REALTORS® as REALTOR® of The Year.

She currently is President of the Women’s Council of REALTORS®– Volusia Area President (for the second time) and 2018 Director for the West Volusia Association of REALTORS®. In 2019, Teresa will serve as the 2019 Treasurer for the Association.

Teresa found NextHome via her connections through Women’s Council of REALTORS®.

“Paige Brewer and Robyn Stahl opened their NextHome office in Daytona Beach and I sat back and watched their progress as a company,” said Teresa. “I saw how they ran their NextHome brokerage and I just couldn’t stop thinking about opening my own NextHome office.”

“I love the fact that at NextHome everything works,” she added. “No broken parts. No empty promises from the franchise. And to have direct access with the corporate team is so unique and different than I had ever experienced in the past. I’m thrilled to be a part of the NextHome family.”

When not selling real estate, Teresa loves spending time with her family. She is married to her husband of three years, Jeremy. Jeremy has two children – his daughter Madison (age 10) and son Carson (age 8).

The family loves kayaking, boating, or any other water activity.

Please join us in congratulating Teresa, Codie and the rest of the team at NextHome All American on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in DeBary, FL!

Frank Vizcarra (left) and Jacob Solis (right)

Pleasanton, CA — September 13, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Liberty. The brokerage represents the 59th location opened in California for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by business partners Frank Vizcarra and Jacob Solis. Frank will handle the operations and serve as the broker of record for the company, while Jacob will handle all financial aspects for the brokerage.

Based in Victorville, NextHome Liberty will provide real estate services such as single family residential sales, first-time home buyers, short sales, foreclosures, multi-family, luxury, military, and relocation services in Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley, Oak Hills, Phelan, Rancho Cucamonga, and the remainder of San Bernardino County.

Frank and Jacob met each other while working at RealtyOne Real Estate in 2016. Jacob (licensed since 2010) and Frank (licensed in 2014) were both high-producing individual agents when they happened to work on the same real estate deal together.

Seeing what a great partnership they could be, Jacob joined Frank’s team in April 2017.

“With us working together and closing over 50 transactions a year, we thought it might be worth finding out more about just opening our own company,” said Frank.

Looking at the REALTOR® Magazine Franchise Ranking Report, they saw NextHome among the fastest growing companies in real estate. After talking with the NextHome sales team, they knew the franchise was the perfect partner.

“We want to continue providing first-class service for all of our clients,” said Jacob. “NextHome provides the national level support that matches our commitment to our client-focused business model.”

When not selling real estate, Jacob and Frank are all about two things: Family and Los Angeles Lakers basketball.

Frank and his girlfriend, Christina, have a blended family of two children – their seven-year-old son Mason and four-year-old daughter Miley.

Jacob and his wife, Lisa, have three daughters – eight-year-old Kori, six-year-old Abby, and two-year-old Maggie.

Please join us in congratulating Frank, Jacob and the rest of the team at NextHome Liberty on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Victorville, CA!

NextHome Findly Estates opens second office location

NextHome Findly Estates opens second office location

Dennis Findly and Karah Sullivan
Dennis Findly and Karah Sullivan

Pleasanton, CA — September 12, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Findly Estates – Murrieta Branch. The brokerage represents the 58th location opened in California for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by longtime real estate broker, Dennis Findly. Joining him on the leadership team as Office Manager will be his daughter, Karah Sullivan. The father/daughter team have been working together in real estate for the past nine years.

Based in Murrieta, NextHome Findly Estates will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, land sales, multi family, short sales, foreclosures, commercial, luxury, new construction, and property management throughout the Temecula Valley.

This location represents Findly’s second office opening. He opened his first NextHome brokerage in December 2017.

“Everything fell into place this year and it was perfect timing for NextHome Findly Estates to expand into Temecula Valley,” said Findly.

Starting his real estate career in 1990, Findly steadily built his business under the Prudential brand for more than 15 years. As a top-producing agent in Riverside County, he created a team to support his increased year-over-year sales.

Findly went out on his own in 2006 and opened his brokerage – America’s Alternative Realty. Under Findly’s leadership, the brokerage expanded to nearly 40 agents.

In 2008, the recession changed the entire real estate market in Riverside County. Aware of the changes coming, Findly modified his real estate model and focused on foreclosures and short sales.

In working with REO companies and banks with foreclosure portfolios, Findly expanded his real estate reach to service listings in the neighboring state of Nevada. Over the course of four years, America’s Alternative Realty sold more than 600 Nevada homes.

“There were so many properties going into foreclosure in 2008 and 2009, our company wanted to be the resource for the banks on their REO properties,” said Findly. “While covering Nevada was an ambitious undertaking, my team and I were able to successfully handle business in both states.”

As an independent broker, Findly wanted to stay cutting edge with technology and service for his clients. After researching his options, Findly came across the NextHome brand and saw what the franchise could bring to his brokerage.

“I looked at just about every franchise model and no one had everything I was looking for except NextHome,” recalled Findly. “Since adopting NextHome, our agents are more excited than ever for the tools that better serve their clients. All the training, webinars, tech… all of it has me excited about the future of NextHome Findly Estates.”

When not selling real estate, the father of three is a lifelong musician. Whether it’s writing music, playing instruments, or singing, Findly’s passion for music spans over 30 years.

Please join us in congratulating Dennis, Karah and the rest of the team at NextHome Findly Estates on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Murrieta, CA!

NextHome Specialists Continues Regional Expansion

NextHome Specialists Continues Regional Expansion

Thomas Shumpert

Pleasanton, CA — September 11, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Specialists – Mount Pleasant Branch. The brokerage represents the eighth office location opened in the state of South Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

The brokerage will be led by owner/operator and broker of record Thomas Shumpert. He will be joined on the leadership team by REALTOR® Market Manager, Kendall Koste. This will be Thomas’ fourth office opening in the past two years. Other NextHome Specialists offices are located in Columbia, Chapin, and Lexington.

The brokerage will provide services such as first-time home buyer representation, investor purchases, multi-family purchases and sales, land representation, condominium purchases, senior housing needs, and new construction.

The Mount Pleasant brokerage will provide residential real estate services to the areas of Mount Pleasant, Summerville, James Island, Johns Island, and the remainder of the Greater Charleston Area.

In 2016, Shumpert opened his first NextHome franchised brokerage in Columbia, SC. After an impressive year in the Columbia location, he felt it was time to expand his territory to accommodate the growth of the business. In September of 2017, he opened his second office location in Lexington and began expansion. Just one month later, he opened the Chapin branch with business partner Terri Scheper.

With the increase in business referrals to the Mount Pleasant area, Thomas felt it was the right time to expand with a new location.

“I’m thrilled to be in business with someone like Kendall,” said Thomas. “As a top producer in the Charleston market, and coming from one of the largest brokerages in the area, having Kendall on our team has me confident our NextHome Specialists office will be very successful, very soon.”

Now in four locations, NextHome Specialists has over 30 talented agents spread throughout the region.

Please join us in congratulating Thomas, Kendall and the team at NextHome Specialists on their fourth NextHome office location!

NextHome New Beginnings Opens in Nashville, TN

NextHome New Beginnings Opens in Nashville, TN

Annette Stithem

Pleasanton, CA — September 7, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome New Beginnings. The brokerage represents the seventh office location opened in the state of Tennessee for the NextHome franchise.

The brokerage will be led by owner/operator and broker of record Annette Stithem. She will handle all day-to-day operations and provide agent support for the brokerage. NextHome New Beginnings will handle transactions in the Greater Nashville Area.

The brokerage will provide services such as first-time home buyer representation, investor purchases, multi-family purchases and sales, land representation, condominium purchases, senior housing needs, and new construction.

Annette started her real estate career in 1997. Working on several development projects while living in Camdenton, Missouri, she helped with licensing and permits for developments such as the Lake of the Ozarks Old Kinderhook Resort and the surrounding community.

In 2000, Annette relocated to Kansas City, Kansas and started selling real estate for J.D. Reece Company (now known as Reece & Nichols, A Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate). Licensed in both Missouri and Kansas, Annette’s strong sales had her rise to the top 5% of agents in her office of 150+ agents. In 2006, Annette also worked as a real estate business coach through the legendary real estate trainer and author, Darryl Davis.

For more than a decade, she continued top level sales until she relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 2013 to be closer to her son, Byron.

Loving the city, Annette knew she would want to put roots down in Nashville. She started with a local real estate company as the lead recruiter. Over the course of four years, Annette was instrumental in bringing over 350 agents to the brokerage.

In early 2018, Annette still enjoyed working alongside talented agents, but felt it was time to start and lead her own company instead of someone else’s.

Before finding NextHome, Annette knew first-hand how many brokerages struggled with the challenge of bringing technology and value to agents. By starting her new brokerage as a NextHome franchisee, she knew she found the cost-effective way to adapt to today’s customer and agent needs.

“At NextHome New Beginnings, we want to focus on respecting our client’s needs,” said Annette. “We do this by providing our agents the very best in training, technology and tools, marketing pieces, and holding high standards. Our agents will be passionate about helping the community and have a sense of purpose in working with buyers and sellers throughout the Nashville area.”

In keeping up with the ideals of community involvement, Annette intends to staff her brokerage with talented individuals who just need an opportunity to shine.

“I intend to staff NextHome New Beginnings with Individuals with Autism who need a chance to shine in a work role,” said Annette. “My son-in-law teaches special needs and I volunteered in one of the camps. I found it to be so rewarding and the attendees of the camp really touched my heart. It’s become a passion of mine to help provide opportunities and NextHome New Beginnings will be a brokerage full of opportunities.”

When not selling real estate, Annette spends as much time as possible with her family. She has two children. Her daughter Katy is a bone marrow transplant nurse. Katy’s husband, Brandon, works with Individuals with Special Needs.

Her son, Byron, is the owner of a sake brewery in Nashville. He has a seven-year-old son, Booker.

Please join us in congratulating Annette and the rest of the team at NextHome New Beginnings on the opening of her new NextHome office in Nashville, TN!
