Pleasanton, CA— May 18, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Cutting Edge Realty This is the fourth NextHome office opened in the state of Louisiana.

Based out of Lafayette, the brokerage will be owned and operated by business partners Christie House Theaux and Joy Cobert.

NextHome Cutting Edge Realty is dedicated to serving the needs of clients in Lafayette, Acadiana, Broussard, Youngsville, Carencro, Maurice, Abbeville, Breaux Bridge and the remainder of the Lafayette parish area.

Both Christie and Joy have been licensed since 2011. Building their businesses independently from each other, they decided to partner up in 2018 to start NextHome Cutting Edge Realty.

Christie has been the leader of the House Team and has consistently sold 60+ homes annually. As one of the top real estate teams in the Lafayette area, her dedication to client service has earned her the reputation of a respected leader in the community.

Joy has an impressive resume as well. While selling more than 25 homes yearly, her skills as an instructor have led her to various positions of leadership. As the Productivity Coach at her local Keller Williams, she helped coach more than 40 REALTORS® on all things real estate including prospecting for new business, providing world-class client service, and best practices to retain clientele.

While both women each had successful businesses, they wanted more for themselves and for the local real estate industry.

“I wanted to bring something different to the area,” recalls Christie. “I wanted to showcase how real estate should be done and raise the bar in real estate. After sharing that with Joy, she felt exactly the same.”

As they looked at options for a real estate franchise, they felt one company in particular aligned with the goal of changing the real estate game – NextHome.

“After talking with (NextHome’s VP of Sales) Charis Moreno, we both felt the choice was easy,” added Joy. “NextHome was the natural choice of company to partner with.”

The business partners will lead NextHome Cutting Edge Realty with the intention of providing a high level of marketing not normally seen in their area. By offering a career-oriented environment for local REALTORS®, the brokerage will provide top level coaching and guidance, while holding high professional standards for all listings and buyer representation.

Christie and Joy also volunteer time and efforts for their Lafayette community.

Christie volunteers at Lafayette High School, where she sits on the Board for the school’s Booster Club and football team. Lafayette High School is the largest high school in the state of Louisiana.

Joy leads a children’s ministry group for Our Saints Church in Opelousas, LA. She volunteers her time as both a speaker and personal growth coach for children.

Christie and her husband, Rocky, have three boys – Brett (22), Christian (17) and Ryker (11 months).  Their family are avid water recreationists and love boating and offshore fishing.

Joy and her husband, Roger, have three children – sons Christian (age 16) and Colin (12) and daughter Carleigh (9). The family loves to travel and recently returned from a Florida Disney World vacation.

Please join us in congratulating Christie, Joy and rest of the team at NextHome Cutting Edge Realty for the opening of their brand-new office location in Lafayette, LA!

The brokerage represents the third location in Louisiana for the NextHome franchise. The company will be owned and operated by veteran real estate broker, Will Redondo.

Based in Mandeville, NextHome Northshore will provide real estate services such as single family residential sales, leasing, commercial, and investment properties to the cities of Mandeville, Covington, Madisonville, Slidell, Hammond and the remainder of the St. Tammany Parish.

Located 30 miles north of New Orleans, Mandeville is home to approximately 11,000 residents.

Redondo started his real estate career in 1985 with the local Century 21 Real Estate office in Mandeville. Steadily building his real estate sales business over the next six years, he went off on his own to open a real estate brokerage – American Dream Realty.

Consistently a top producing broker for over 20 years, Redondo has become well known for being a community resource for all things Mandeville. As one of the more well-known experts in the local real estate market, Redondo’s brokerage has sold more than 75 transactions annually.

In 2013, he rebranded his brokerage under the name A Victory Agency – the real estate division of his multi-business corporate entity. A Victory Agency Inc. also features a high producing insurance company under the corporate structure. The insurance division of the corporation is run by his wife of 37 years, Nancy.

In 2017, the brokerage is on pace to close more than 80 transactions, but Redondo felt it was important to provide his agents more technology and services to assist their clients.

“Technology in 2018 is so important in a developing real estate brokerage,” said Redondo. “After seeing how we can serve our clients better, NextHome was the perfect solution for our company to bring cutting-edge technology to our brokerage that has worked hard on being part of the fabric of our community.”

“The NextHome franchise is well ahead of the other real estate franchises,” added Redondo. “What companies are saying they are going to be doing in the future, NextHome is actually doing today.”

When not selling real estate, Redondo spends time with his family. The Redondos have four children and two grandchildren (with two more on the way). They love to travel and recently completed trips to visit New York, Colorado, and California.

Please join us in congratulating Will, Nancy and the rest of the team at NextHome Northshore on the opening of their brand new NextHome office!
