Pleasanton, CA — February 5, 2021 — NextHome is thrilled to announce that their entire leadership team has been selected as RISMedia 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers — a dynamic group of key influencers making headlines as a result of their newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry, and their efforts to positively affect the consumers and communities they serve.
RISMedia, the leader in U.S. real estate news and information services, announced its nearly 300, 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers on Feb. 1, in both an online directory on RISMedia.com and in the February issue of its flagship publication, Real Estate magazine.
RISMedia’s 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers were nominated in 2020 by RISMedia readers and editors and are showcased in the following categories: Influencers, Trailblazers, Futurists, Achievers, Crusaders, Inspirations, Luminaries, and Trendsetters. NextHome’s entire senior management team has been recognized in five of the different categories.
Chief Executive Officer James Dwiggins was named a Trailblazer, a category described as “The Agents of Change.” James leads the innovative and forward-focused vision of the franchise. With a passion for understanding the areas where the industry is lacking, and a dedication to closing those gaps, he has elevated the luxury real estate experience that NextHome offers.
Chief Operating Officer Tei Baishiki was named a Trendsetter, a category for “The Creative Thinkers.” In his position, Tei plays a large role in interacting with each and every department in the company. Because of his commitment to a high standard of thoroughly vetting and testing their products and services, there is an over 70 percent adoption rate of the NextHome toolkit by members — staggeringly high above other franchises in the industry.
Vice President of Sales Charis Moreno was named a Futurist, dubbed as “The Forward Thinkers.” Her role focuses on growing the brand across the United States, and eventually internationally. In 2020, under Moreno’s leadership, NextHome opened its 500th office and added more new franchises during the COVID-19 pandemic than it did during the same period in 2019.
Vice President Imran Poladi was named as an Inspiration, known as “The Big-Hearted and Brave.” Imran oversees all training and business development for the company’s more than 500 franchised offices nationwide. He has educated thousands of agents and brokers across the globe, sharing his experiences to inspire business success.
Chief Strategy Officer Keith Robinson was named an Influencer, a group for “The Thought Leaders.” Keith is responsible for developing and overseeing the implementation of key strategic business relationships, further adding to the growth of the company’s national expansion.
“Every year, we’re amazed by the incredible ingenuity and success of members in the real estate community, ranging from the glass ceilings being shattered by industry leaders, to the creativity and innovation being implemented at a record pace, and all the way to the wonderful charitable work being accomplished across the nation,” said John Featherston, CEO, president and publisher of RISMedia. “This year, more than ever, we are proud to recognize the hard work, dedication and determination of real estate’s finest professionals — the 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers — who went above and beyond in 2020 even amid a turbulent time for the industry, and the world, facing the challenges head-on and without fear. Help us in celebrating their hard-earned recognition.”
