NextHome PaperTown opens in Clyde, North Carolina

Teresa Bailey & Jeremy Colclasure

Pleasanton, CA — April 28, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome PaperTown, based in Clyde, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 29th office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise and the 563rd NextHome office opened nationally.

Located just 20 minutes from Asheville, NextHome PaperTown will serve clients across Haywood, Jackson, Madison, and Buncombe county. 

The brokerage is owned by Teresa Bailey and Jeremy Colclasure – a husband and wife team who are building their business on a foundation of compassionate service. 

Teresa obtained her real estate license in 2018. She started her career with two nationally recognized franchises, benefitting from great mentorship and guidance. Most recently, Teresa sold with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Heritage in Canton, North Carolina. 

During her first year in business, Teresa’s hard work created $1 million in sales volume. Last year, she sold more than $7 million in a market where the average home price hovers around $225,000. As she considers her career, Teresa is most proud of the people she helps. 

“Most of my sales are in the under $175,000 range because I tend to work with a lot of people with low credit scores or who are first-time homebuyers,” Teresa said. “I enjoy helping people achieve homeownership when they thought it might never be possible for them.” 

Teresa’s business also includes her experience with commercial sales and vast experience in the area of mountain luxury homes.

From the beginning, Teresa’s goal was to build her own business. After talking with other REALTORS®, she discovered NextHome and knew it was the right fit for her. As a new NextHome broker, Teresa hopes to create a business built on service and compassion for those in her hometown. 

“I do this to help people,” Teresa said. “I was born and raised in Haywood County and I want people who live there to be happy. My goal is to help people realize that they can own their own homes.”

Though Teresa has spent her years in real estate refining many valuable skills, her greatest strength is an ability to love and nurture those around her. This talent has been refined through her 23 years of experience as a foster parent. In that time, Teresa and Jeremy have provided a temporary home for more than 300 children. Teresa and Jeremy are the proud parents of Dustin, Skyler, Chandi, Samuel, Jack, and twins Gabby & Jasmine. Additionally, they are Gigi and Poppy to Sawyer, Bryson, Everlee, Lainey and several foster grandchildren. Teresa and Jeremy would like to invite you to join their big family by being part of NextHome PaperTown!

Please join us in congratulating Teresa and Jeremy on the opening of NextHome PaperTown in Clyde, North Carolina!

NextHome Announces new North Carolina office

NextHome Announces new North Carolina office

Jamie Sherrill

Pleasanton, CA — March 4, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Advantage, based in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 28th office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise and the 548th NextHome office opened nationally.

NextHome Advantage will serve a myriad of real estate needs across the Charlotte, Lake Norman, and Catawba Valley markets. The brokerage is owned by Jamie Sherrill, a native to Sherrills Ford who has vast experience in all aspects of real estate. 

Jamie has deep connections to her MLS area, with her ancestor, Adam Sherrill, fording the Catawba River from east to west in 1747 and founding the town. Many descendants still live in the picturesque community. 

Jamie obtained her real estate license in 2003 and has enjoyed a wide-ranging career in the industry ever since. Her 10-year career with a local independent gave her experience in commercial properties, residential real estate, brokerage administration, and marketing.

In 2006, Jamie became a provisional broker. When the company opened its commercial division, Jamie became the brokerage’s commercial division manager. 

In 2013, she began working with another local commercial builder where she built her bookkeeping and backend management skills while keeping her real estate license active. Jamie eventually became a marketing manager for another builder before joining Mooresville Realty in 2015. 

As her career continued to evolve, Jamie knew that she needed to take the natural next step: owning her own brokerage. 

“When you’ve had the career that I’ve had, you’ve worked in every seat and seen which ones are right for you,” Jamie said. “I know that I am really good at the front end, at managing and selling. Having NextHome already set up most of my back-end operations will enable me to do what I do best, all with the backing of industry-leading resources.”

Jamie discovered the NextHome difference two years ago when she needed a realtor in a different market to help a client. 

“I called Michelle Morris (of NextHome Integrity First) in Fayetteville to see if she could help this client, and I remember being so impressed with her on the phone,” Jamie said. “I began following her on social media and was also impressed with her marketing.”

When Jamie started thinking seriously about opening her own franchise, she gave Michelle a call. It wasn’t long before Jamie knew everything she needed to know about the franchise. 

“I loved the community aspect of NextHome,” Jamie said. “The care that goes before everything they do and that family feel. I feel like I know all of the corporate leadership already, and you can tell that everyone loves their job and is truly there to help.”

Jamie hopes to bring that same culture to NextHome Advantage. 

As she grows her business, Jamie’s focus for 2021 is to connect with the community she serves and build lasting relationships under the NextHome Advantage name. 

“Any broker you hire is going to get you onto the MLS and do your basic marketing,” Jamie said. “Our difference is that we are the brokerage that will meet you where you are – who will focus on your unique goals and what you as a buyer or seller needs to happen in this transaction. Then, we will use all the industry-leading resources at our disposal to make your goals happen.”

When she isn’t going the extra mile for her clients, Jamie enjoys spending time on the lake, traveling, and making memories with family and friends. She is the dog mom to a Shih Tzu named Taylor. 

Please join us in congratulating Jamie on the opening of NextHome Advantage in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina!

Laura Flores

Pleasanton, CA — September 17, 2020 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome WNC Realty, based in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 25th office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise and the 512th NextHome office opened nationally.

From this charming mountain town of about 14,500 people, NextHome WNC Realty will serve residential buyers and sellers across Henderson, Buncombe, Polk, Transylvania, and Rutherford counties. 

NextHome WNC Realty is owned by Laura Flores, a seasoned REALTOR® with a wide range of experience. 

Laura was first licensed as a REALTOR® in 2006, and it was an old craftsman bungalow that first piqued Laura’s interest in real estate. 

“Through the process of renovating it, it became a curiosity for me, and I fell in love with the details and history of older homes,” Laura said. 

Originally from California, Laura is licensed in both North Carolina and California and has worked with brokerages large and small throughout her career. As an extremely diversified REALTOR®, Laura has worked with clients seeking starter homes as well as those with high-end luxury in mind. From lots to large tracts, Laura has also sold a lot of land. In addition, Laura was on her brokerage’s commercial team and has enrolled in the CCIM Institute – commercial real estate’s global standard for professional achievement. Currently, Laura is working on her sixth home renovation, with four of those renovations being historical properties.

However, her greatest sense of accomplishment comes from the people she is able to serve.

Hendersonville, North Carolina

“The best part of my job is really the lasting relationships I’ve made over the years with people,” Laura said. “I think that’s meaningful. That’s what gives you purpose.”

Throughout her years in the industry, Laura always wanted to open her own brokerage. Recently, circumstances aligned to make 2020 the perfect year for Laura to achieve that goal. 

“When I found NextHome, I knew I had found something new and fresh that people in Hendersonville will be attracted to,” Laura said.  

In addition, Laura loved that NextHome embraced the values of inclusivity, diversity, and flexibility.

“These things combined created a business model that aligned with what I wanted for myself,” Laura said. 

Today, Laura is offering North Carolina clients a fresh, modern, and professional approach to real estate. 

“I want to offer my clients the best tools available and NextHome provides an opportunity for me to do that,” Laura said. “Now, in addition to access to my work ethic and experience, clients will have access to industry-leading technology.”

In the community, Laura has enjoyed volunteering her time as a commissioner for the Hendersonville Historic Preservation Commission. In this role, she helped ensure that any renovations to historic homes preserve their character and community importance. 

In addition, Laura volunteers with the United Way.

Laura and her husband, Renato, have been married for 25 years. Renato is also a licensed real estate agent who will be joining Laura in sales at NextHome WNC Realty. 

“Renato truly is a people person who has a gift for working with diverse personalities,” Laura said. 

Please join us in congratulating Laura, Renato, and the entire team at NextHome WNC Realty on the opening of their new brokerage in Hendersonville, North Carolina!

NextHome announces new Charlotte area brokerage

NextHome announces new Charlotte area brokerage

Shauna & Ray Graves

Pleasanton, CA — July 8, 2020 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Allegiance, based in Concord, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 24th office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise and the 490th NextHome office opened nationally.

The brokerage will serve residential buyers and sellers in Charlotte, Concord, and the remainder of Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Gaston, Union, Rowan, and Iredell counties. 

NextHome Allegiance is owned by high-producing real estate power couple Ray and Shauna Graves who have over 17 years of combined experience in local real estate. Shauna will take on the role of Broker in Charge and Ray will handle NextHome Allegiance’s business operations.

In 2006, Shauna began her real estate career working with a small boutique brokerage in Charlotte. Seven years later, she joined a nationally recognized franchise where she continued to exceed client expectations and continuously ranked as a top individual agent in the brokerage. While there, she enjoyed teaching newer agents in her office and served on the Leadership Council with the brokerage from 2016 to 2019. After a successful career in Pharmaceutical Sales, Ray obtained his real estate license in 2017 and decided to leave corporate to join Shauna in building Graves Realty Group. Together, the Graves average more than 50 transactions per year and almost $14 million in sales volume annually. With full-time administrative support, Graves Realty Group achieved phenomenal success and earned their brokerage’s triple gold designation in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Ray and Shauna are experts in a wide range of residential transactions including new home sales, estate sales, and short sales. As a licensed General Contractor since 2006, Ray has consulted numerous clients on construction and renovation projects. 

“We provide our clients with another level of value through my general construction experience,” Ray said.  

Shauna specializes in listing homes and consulting homeowners to achieve maximum profits.  The couple enjoys working with investors, first-time home buyers, and assisting those relocating to the area. Ray and Shauna are North Carolina natives and have lived in the Charlotte area for over 20 years.

As born entrepreneurs, the couple has always desired to create a business that would leave a legacy for their family and the community. In early 2020, they decided it was time to search for the right franchise fit.

One day, an article in REALTOR® Magazine caught Ray’s eye.

“Initially, NextHome appealed to me for its simplicity and its very modern branding,” Ray said. “But then I really did a deep dive and researched all I could on the company. That’s when I discovered that NextHome’s culture, marketing, corporate support, and agent tools were aligned with our vision. I started looking at reviews, not only from clients but also from franchise owners. I made phone calls to current owners to get their input and they all said they were truly satisfied and wished they could have joined earlier. I couldn’t find anything that was negative.”

Today, NextHome Allegiance is offering unique value to Concord and Charlotte-area clients through both NextHome’s outstanding marketing and the Graves’s industry experience.

The couple is also passionate about helping other agents achieve success in their careers.  “It is an amazing feeling to be able to positively impact lives,” Shauna said, “and the NextHome platform allows us to offer agents a simplified solution to assist them with building their businesses.” 

Since service to others is at the heart of their mission in life, the couple seeks out ways to serve their local community both personally and through their business. At each client appreciation event, the couple ties in a service component to benefit a local non-profit. In the past, they have worked with Habitat for Humanity, The Salvation Army, Loaves & Fishes, The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, and The Doves Nest, a local shelter that offers transitional housing for women.

Ray and Shauna have been married for 18 years and are the proud parents of two children, Olivia (13) and Noah (12).  Together, the family enjoys biking, traveling, and cuddling with their furry mini Bernedoodle Roskey.

Please join us in congratulating Ray and Shauna on the opening of NextHome Allegiance in Concord, North Carolina!

NextHome announces new North Carolina brokerage

NextHome announces new North Carolina brokerage

Sam Hossink

Pleasanton, CA — May 7, 2020 — NextHome is pleased to announce the newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Solutions Realty, based in Jamestown, North Carolina. The brokerage represents the 23rd office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise and the 468th NextHome office opened nationally.

The brokerage will serve residential and investment buyers and sellers across the Jamestown area including High Point, Greensboro, Oak Ridge, Kernersville, Thomasville, Archdale, and Trinity.

NextHome Solutions Realty is owned by service-minded local Sam Hossink. Sam graduated from High Point University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. She has almost 20 years of industry experience and loves helping homeowners achieve their dreams. 

“The thrill, excitement, and joy of placing keys in the buyer’s hands never gets old,” Sam said. “I absolutely love what I do and, for me, that moment is just the icing on the cake.”

Her attraction to real estate began when she bought her first condo and was thoroughly impressed with her real estate agent’s service.

“She was the most wonderful person and she was really good at educating me throughout the entire process,” Sam recalled. “At the time, I was looking for a career change. I knew I would love to get out and talk to people and help them every day rather than sitting behind a desk.”

The career change turned out to be a great move for Sam. She spent the next 14 years with a mixture of local independents as well as a national franchise before deciding to open her own NextHome brokerage. 

Sam’s decision to open her own brokerage was fueled by a desire to help fellow agents find a fair, ethical, and supportive workplace. By opening her own brokerage, Sam knew that she would be able to better manage her cash flow and reinvest it in the best interests of her clients.

Sam turned to YouTube to research franchises and was impressed when she discovered NextHome. 

“NextHome embraces new technology, such as digital transaction management with customizable marketing. They also provide the Mobile Connect app, unlimited access to live and recorded training sessions, and an extraordinary amount of products and services. All of these are so needed in our industry now,” Sam said. “NextHome also stood out for its diversity. I saw leaders of all different backgrounds, nationalities, and genders and that is a real strength in my opinion.”

The franchisor also offered Sam a feeling that she was truly cared about as a person.

“I got the feeling when I decided on NextHome that it is a company that actually cares about people,” Sam said.

Today, Sam is bringing compassionate service and client education to Jamestown-area buyers and sellers. 

“What I enjoy most about being a realtor is helping educate my clients about the selling and buying process, helping families with what is usually their largest investment, and making their dream of homeownership come true,” Sam said. 

In addition to helping clients and area REALTORS®, Sam loves serving those in the military through her brokerage. Through her network of NextHome connections, Sam is helping returning service members find homes, and more than that, places where they can feel a part of a community. 

Sam is the proud mother of a retired Army veteran who is currently serving overseas with the National Guard. She has been married to her business partner and greatest supporter, Randall, for four years. Their blended family includes five children and she is the loving grandmother of three young grandsons. 

Please join us in congratulating Sam and Randall on the opening of NextHome Solutions Realty in Jamestown, North Carolina!

NextHome announces newest brokerage in the Triad Area

NextHome announces newest brokerage in the Triad Area

Doug & Adriane Witcher, Tracy Turner

Pleasanton, CA — November 27, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Realty Partners. The brokerage represents the 19th office location opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Realty Partners is owned by Tracy Turner and Doug Witcher. Adriane Witcher, Doug’s wife, works as a REALTOR®/broker for the office and David Turner, Tracy’s husband, is NextHome Realty Partner’s project manager. 

Based in High Point, NextHome Realty Partners’ agents are looking forward to serving clients across Greensboro, Kernersville, Jamestown, High Point, Winston-Salem, and the remainder of the Triad.

High Point, nestled between Greensboro and Winston-Salem, is known as the “Furniture Capital of the World” and is the home of High Point University and a brand new minor league baseball team, the High Point Rockers. The Triad boasts a veterans hospital, as well as six additional major universities, two more minor league baseball teams and the Greensboro Swarm, a basketball team owned by the Charlotte Hornets.

With 12 agents and growing, NextHome Realty Partners provides expertise in all types of residential real estate including first-time home buying, investment properties, and veteran relocations.

“We want to bring on agents that are like-minded as us and will go the extra mile to take care of their clients,” said Tracy. “We want agents who will be creative and think outside the box to get the job done.”

NextHome Realty Partners can trace its origins to 2009 when Tracy first obtained her real estate license. Prior to that, Tracy was a Director of Sales and Marketing for Sheraton Hotels where she developed an interest in real estate investing. In 2006, she and her husband started a real estate investment company and purchased over 45 foreclosures properties. They would fix up and rehab the properties to sell or rent. 

Tracy initially worked for a small, independent firm, and eventually a larger firm where she sharpened her skills over the next six years. In 2014, she became broker-in-charge of a nationwide real estate firm.

In 2016, Adriane Witcher obtained her real estate license and started working for Tracy.  Adriane, Doug, Tracy, and David had been friends for over 20 years. Tracy had no reservations about hiring Adriane as a new agent because of Adriane’s successful business background. 

Doug and Adriane started a trucking company, Worth Transportation Systems, in 1998. They grew it from one truck and a small warehouse to a multi-million dollar business delivering furniture throughout the United States. They sold the business in 2004 and bought Balance Day Spa in Greensboro, NC. They soon added two more locations in the Triad. They sold the spas in 2010 and became involved in a couple other businesses until they realized real estate was undoubtedly their calling. 

“Doug and I have purchased 11 homes that we have lived in, all in the Triad, during our almost 20 years of marriage,” said Adriane. “We have always enjoyed the home buying, selling, and remodeling process. With our interest in real estate, becoming a REALTOR® seemed like the perfect fit.”  

Doug soon followed with getting his real estate license and in Spring of 2017, the Turners and the Witchers once again got the entrepreneurial itch. In Fall of that year, they opened their own firm called Turner Witcher Realty. A brick and mortar office soon followed and they quickly grew to six agents.  

The company thrived in its first year, with Doug, Adriane, and Tracy closing over 60 transactions themselves along with dozens more from their agents. 

Their connection to NextHome began not by looking for a franchise to partner with, but because they were looking for a way to improve their logo and have consistency in marketing

“While I was researching logos, I remembered a REALTOR® that I had a deal with earlier this year who worked with NextHome Triad Realty,” Adriane said. “The logo and mascot caught my attention. We were not fans of franchises, but the branding was really good. We were interested, but hesitant. I presented it to Doug and Tracy and it wasn’t long before we were on the phone with NextHome’s vice president of sales Charis Moreno.”

The trio knew they wanted to give their agents and clients the best, most up-to-date technology and tools. They wanted to improve their logo to be sharp and consistent in all advertising and marketing. The search for a logo morphed into an upgrade for their entire business. 

“When I looked at franchises, I always associated them with an old and stuffy feeling,” Doug said. “Then I saw NextHome and it was new and fresh. They offered everything we were looking for while still allowing us to operate our own business. They didn’t impose all the rules and regulations of a typical real estate franchise.”

Adriane found the branding tools to be a significant time saver for a brokerage that was doing it all independently before. 

“Adriane is our in-house tech guru and she was usually the one who was searching the Internet for better and more efficient ways to get things done,” Tracy said. “With NextHome, everything is in one place, right at our fingertips.” 

“There is consistency and comprehensiveness in the branding and marketing. NextHome offers everything we wanted and needed, including things we didn’t even know we needed,” said Adriane. 

Today, NextHome Realty Partners offers that outside-the-box thinking and unparalleled marketing to all of their clients, and it shows. So far in 2019, the brokerage helped clients with more than 100 successful transactions and did $24 million in sales. Tracy, Doug, and Adriane are still selling as successfully as ever. 

Outside of helping clients find their next home, Doug and Adriane enjoy cheering on the Carolina Panthers and Adriane’s alma mater, the UNC Tarheels. They are the proud parents of two children: Hayden (20) and Sofiya (19) whom they adopted from Russia in 2002. 

Tracy has been married to David for 27 years and she is the mother of four, Lauren (24), Brittany (23), and twins Jack and Kristen (14). Lauren is married to the firm’s newest agent, Spencer Harrell, and they are expecting a baby girl in early January. In the summer months, the family enjoys going to Smith Mountain Lake and supporting their kids as they play soccer and golf. 

Please join us in welcoming Tracy, Doug, Adriane, and the rest of the team at NextHome Realty Partners to the NextHome family!

NextHome Turn Key Realty opens in Raleigh

NextHome Turn Key Realty opens in Raleigh

Danielle & Chad Weeks

Pleasanton, CA — November 12th, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Turn Key Realty. The brokerage represents the 20th office opened in North Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Raleigh, NextHome Turn Key Realty is owned by husband and wife team Danielle and Chad Weeks. Danielle has a wealth of experience in relocations, especially for seniors who are looking to downsize, right-size, or relocate to a 55+ or retirement community. Chad is the quintessential analytical businessman and together they deliver superior service for all types of residential real estate. 

Although NextHome Turn Key is based in Raleigh, the team will also serve clients across Durham, Wake Forest, Holly Springs, Morrisville, Apex, Garner, and the remainder of Wake and its 15 surrounding counties. 

In recent years, Danielle has served the sellers of Wake and Durham counties as a top-producing listing specialist. However, prior to real estate, she spent more than a decade managing retirement communities. Part of that job was helping seniors transition from one home to another. 

“I spent time helping seniors through that relocation process from the other side,” Danielle recalled. “It helped me understand the unique and very diverse needs of older generations.”

In 2016, her skills caught the attention of a local real estate broker and she was recruited to a small, boutique firm. Danielle eventually transitioned to a larger, national brokerage where she catapulted her career to regional success. 

“My time as a listing consultant taught me to door knock, cold call, and do whatever it took to build relationships with clients,” Danielle said. “I gained great confidence and discovered that I could walk into a house, give a killer presentation, and sell that house quickly.”

Danielle continued to work on two high-producing teams as a listing specialist until she and Chad opened their NextHome brokerage in early August. 

“We wanted to deliver a higher quality experience and have more flexibility for our family,” Chad said of their attraction to NextHome. “Having our own franchise allows us to create the culture we want – where clients can feel valued and not like they are being cranked through an assembly line.”

NextHome had been a re-appearing presence in Danielle and Chad’s lives for many years. A North Carolina NextHome broker had tried to recruit Danielle just six months into her real estate career, and Chad’s best friend worked with another NextHome broker. Then, Danielle and Chad began to consistently see eye-catching orange NextHome signs popping up on properties everywhere they looked. 

“NextHome kept coming back into my life,” Danielle said. “Then I took a good look at the franchise and it was really cool. I like the ability franchises have to take NextHome’s great tools and tailor them to the way we do business and what our clients need.”

The NextHome Turn Key Realty team is now using the franchise’s superior tools to list and sell residential properties. Together, Danielle and Chad are building their business with a known name in Raleigh. 

“NextHome is well respected in our community,” Danielle said. “It’s a recognized and well-respected brand in the marketplace. Plus, combining my consumer-focused way of doing business with NextHome’s humans over houses motto made it a good match.”

When Danielle and Chad aren’t building their business, they enjoy getting together with friends and serving in their church’s ministry. Danielle is also active with many senior-related organizations that tackle all sorts of issues surrounding seniors by identifying problems and working towards solutions. Danielle has been active with Health Affairs Round Table (HART) for several years. 

Chad and Danielle are enjoying seven years of marriage and are the proud parents of Aubree (6) and Haven (3).

Please join us in congratulating Danielle and Chad on the opening of NextHome Turn Key Realty in Raleigh, North Carolina!

Kelly Myers opens NextHome At The Lake in North Carolina

Kelly Myers opens NextHome At The Lake in North Carolina

Phoenisa & Kelly Myers

Pleasanton, CA — July 25, 2016 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome At The Lake. The brokerage represents the 15th office location opened in the state of North Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

Owned and operated by Kelly Myers, he will be joined on the leadership team by Broker In Charge, Dawn McGinn.

Based in Mooresville, NextHome At The Lake will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Lake Norman, Mooresville, Troutman, Davidson, Statesville, Huntersville, and all surrounding areas.

Mooresville is located 30 minutes north of Charlotte and is home to approximately 35,000 residents. It’s well known for being the home of many NASCAR racing teams and their drivers. This has caused the city to be titled “Race City USA.

Kelly has had an extensive career as a business entrepreneur. With successful ventures in restaurant franchises, business investments and real estate portfolio investments, Kelly made the natural progression towards building a real estate brokerage.

Kelly has been around real estate for his entire adult life, as his father has owned various commercial properties and has a portfolio of over 100 rental properties.

Starting his real estate investing in 2000, Kelly has been a successful real estate flipper for more than 18 years. Flipping more than 40 properties, Kelly brings a wealth of experience to NextHome At The Lake. Additionally, he and his real estate construction team have built several custom high-end new construction properties.

In 2017, Kelly was having more and more people he knew asking if he would assist them in buying investment properties. Seeing this as an opportunity, Kelly decided to open his own real estate brokerage.

“I had already taken part in owning a successful sandwich shop franchise, so I knew the value of following a franchise model,” said Kelly. “Within minutes of seeing what NextHome had to offer, I fell in love with the brand and all that it stands for.”

Kelly needed a broker for his brokerage and found Dawn to be the right person for the role. Introduced from a close family friend, Kelly saw Dawn’s 15+ years of real estate experience to be the perfect scenario to have her bring her strong leadership to the company.

NextHome At The Lake has represented quite a few high-profile clients, including one of the most recognized NASCAR drivers in the world, Kurt Busch.

When not selling real estate, Kelly spends time with his family. Kelly and his wife of 12 years, Phoenisa, have two daughters – 10-year-old Phoenix and seven-year-old Piper. The Myers family love spending time out on Lake Norman. Kelly has become synonymous with the lake and is locally known as “Mr. Lake Norman”.

Please join us in congratulating Kelly, Dawn and the rest of the team at NextHome At The Lake on the opening of their new NextHome office in Lake Norman, NC!

The office will be owned and operated by top-producing REALTOR® Mary Ann Wilson.

Mary Ann met her husband, Reid, while working in New York when she interviewed him for a position at her firm.

In 2014, Mary Ann made the choice to get her real estate license and jump into the sales side of the business.

“It was the perfect time for me to become a REALTOR®,” said Mary Ann. “My youngest daughter was old enough for me to put in the time to start my real estate sales career.”

She started at RE/MAX as a key member of a high-producing established real estate team. As someone who lived in a development of 600 homes, Mary Ann tapped into a builder’s purchase of 10 acres to jump start her sales career.

“A national builder, K Hovnanian, purchased this large parcel of land near my home,” said Mary Ann. “I reached out to the regional President of the company and scheduled an appointment to present what we could do to help sell these properties.”

“The company had us be a part of the sales process and we sold two-thirds of the entire development,” she added.

In 2017, Mary Ann left the team to start her own business and it took off, selling more than $7 million in volume in her first year as an individual agent.

Her 2018 is going even better. She is currently on pace to exceed over $10 million in sales volume.

Mary Ann found herself in a position to go out on her own and open her own brokerage. With her business experience and a booming real estate sales business, it made a lot of sense to take this next step.

She found NextHome online in an Inman News article. After speaking with NextHome’s Vice President of Sales, Charis Moreno, Mary Ann knew the franchise was the right fit for her new brokerage.

“With NextHome’s tech platform and tools, it was a perfect addition to my focus of high-level, full-service marketing for each of our listings,” said Mary Ann. “I feel great about what NextHome In The Triangle will be able to offer sellers in our market.”

The Wilsons have been married for 22 years and have two daughters – Rosie (age 20), a junior at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Kerry (age 18) a Communications major at the University of North Carolina, Asheville.

Please join us in congratulating Mary Ann and the rest of the team at NextHome In The Triangle on the opening of their new NextHome office in Cary, NC!

Pleasanton, CA — May 9, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome The Ideal Group. The brokerage represents the 13th location opened in the state of North Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Raleigh, the company will be owned and operated by real estate broker, Mark Anderson. The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, luxury, multi-family properties, and new home sales to the communities of Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Wake Forest, Holly Springs, Fuquay and the remainder of the greater Raleigh metropolitan area.

As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh is home to approximately a half million residents. The city is the second largest in the state behind the city of Charlotte.

Starting real estate in 2006, Mark has begun his career working in auctions with Real Estate Owned (REO) foreclosure properties. Over a period of three years, he worked with bank asset managers and participated in selling off foreclosed homes that were taken back by the bank.

In 2009, Mark moved to a more traditional approach to selling real estate. He moved to a local independent brokerage and sold as a REALTOR®. Over the next five years, Mark not only sold single family residences for sellers and buyers, but also focused on working with hedge funds in acquiring properties for long term hold and rental.

As his business grew to see more than 100 transactions annually, it made a lot of sense to go out on his own and open a brokerage. In 2013, he opened The Ideal Group. From December 2013 to December 2017, The Ideal Group has closed more than 900 transactions to the tune of more than $117 million in sales volume.

In late 2017, Mark made the decision to diversify his business model and become less reliant on hedge fund business. Seeing the need for more tools and services to provide his agents, Mark joined the NextHome franchise.

“I checked with various franchises, but found NextHome to have everything that I wanted in a partnership,” recalls Mark. “NextHome’s VP of Sales Charis Moreno was the deciding factor for me. Her knowledge of what today’s brokerage would need to be successful really impressed me.”

“After coming out to meet the team in California, I texted my wife Wendy ‘This is where we are supposed to be,’” he added.

NextHome The Ideal Group will be focused on having career-oriented REALTORS® who want to provide better service and technology than the competition.

In addition to the sales the brokerage provides, Mark and the team give back to the community they serve. He’s involved in his local church and has participated in local Habitat For Humanity home building events for those in low income areas.

Mark and Wendy have been married for 20 years and have two daughters – Makenzie (age 11) and Ashlyn (7). The Andersons love all outdoor activities including lake swimming and tubing.

Please join us in congratulating Mark and the rest of the team at NextHome The Ideal Group on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Raleigh, NC!
