Real Estate Pro with a Heart of Gold

Real Estate Pro with a Heart of Gold

Hard times have a way of making their way into people’s lives. In some cases, these struggles lead individuals to succumb to defeat, while in others, create a fire that pushes them beyond their limits.

Erica Stietenroth, a NextHome real estate agent in Houston, found success despite the curveballs real estate threw in her direction.

It wasn’t always this way for Erica though. Before NextHome, her journey as a new real estate agent was an uphill climb, even more so when the recession abruptly ascended. During this time, Erica struggled to make it through hardships in a market filled with skepticism in purchasing new homes and deals falling through. It took a toll on her business and thus, trickled down into her personal and financial life.

This downturn in her career created a stressful financial situation for her household, which resulted in cutting back on as many resources as possible in an attempt to make ends meet. It was Erica’s ambition and obstinate determination that did not let her see the darkest of these times. It also did not cause her to stray away from the real estate industry.

In 2017, Erica joined the NextHome family after she was recruited by a broker who spotted her immense potential – Robyn Jones with NextHome Real Estate Place. In the same year, she pounded the pavement resulting in 29 closed transactions and was able to salvage her mindset and the direction of her career. This year, Erica has closed 45 transactions and was recognized by the Houston Association of REALTORS® Young Professional Network as one of the Top 20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate.

“The ability to align myself with the right people has been the key to my success,” Erica said. Another key to her business growth? Referrals from former clients and her extensive, nationwide REALTOR® network.

Despite her appetite for success, there is one thing Erica finds equally, if not more, important – her family. Currently residing in the Houston suburb of Katy, Texas, this 39-year-old is wise in knowing money is not everything. Having found balance in her career and personal life, Erica is an individual who overcame losing faith in the industry through persistence and ended up exceeding her own expectations.

We are proud to have Erica as a NextHomie and hope others find inspiration in her unwavering drive and dedication to professionalism.

NextHome Premier Neighborhood Realty expands with new location

NextHome Premier Neighborhood Realty expands with new location

Jon Brumer

Pleasanton, CA — November 20, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Premier Neighborhood Realty – Kissimmee Branch. The brokerage represents the 51st location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The office will be owned and operated by broker, Jon Brumer.

“Opening a second location made a lot of sense for me and our company’s growing need for a Kissimmee location,” said Jon. “Since my office announcement in July, I’ve fallen in love with the brand and wanted to have more NextHome exposure to residents in Osceola County.”

Based out of Kissimmee, this particular NextHome Premier Neighborhood Realty branch location will provide real estate services to buyers and sellers such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, multi-family properties, land deals, condominiums, and new construction homes for the areas of St. Cloud, Kissimmee, Davenport, Clermont, and the remainder of the Orlando Metro Area.

Thirty miles south of Orlando, Kissimmee is home to approximately 60,000 residents and is one of the larger communities in the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metropolitan area.

Before starting his real estate sales career, Jon worked as an appraiser for the Miami-Dade County Tax Assessor’s Office. For more than ten years, Jon evaluated the values for hundreds of properties. This experience has helped him provide some of the most accurate estimates of property values for his real estate clients.

In 2014, Jon moved to Kissimmee and worked as a REALTOR® with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services of America Florida Realty. In 2017, after building his sales business at the brokerage, Jon moved to a local independent company, Property Pros.

Although Jon found success as a REALTOR® working at a brokerage, he wanted to follow his passion of opening his own company. In 2018, he attained his broker’s license and began looking at franchise options for his soon-to-be-opened real estate brokerage.

“I found NextHome through a Google search when I was looking at real estate franchises,” said Jon. “NextHome had everything I was looking for in a franchise – support from the franchisor, top-notch technology, and systems that would be of real value to our clients. NextHome allows me to still run a boutique style brokerage while having the benefits of a big franchise”

“These benefits not only help our clients, but attract talented agents to our brokerage as well,” he added.

Jon believes in giving back to his community and works with underprivileged children via the “Give the Kids The World” program. The organization is similar to a Make-A-Wish program, where volunteers bring the Disney experience to children who are unable to go to Disney World.

When not selling real estate, Jon and his wife of four years, Brittany, love to travel. As members of the Wyndham Timeshare and Hilton Grand Vacations programs, the couple travel throughout the world.

Please join us in congratulating Jon and the rest of the team at NextHome Premier Neighborhood Realty on the opening of their second NextHome office in Kissimmee, FL!

NextHome launches 50th franchised location in Florida

NextHome launches 50th franchised location in Florida

Pleasanton, CA — November 15, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Atlantic Coast. The brokerage represents the 50th location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise. Based in Palm City, NextHome Atlantic Coast will be owned by broker/owner and top-producing REALTOR® Daniel Wade.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, vacation and second homes, relocation, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, luxury purchase and sales for the cities of Palm City, Stuart, Jensen Beach, Hobe Sound, Sewall’s Point, Port St. Lucie, and the rest of Martin County.

Located 30 minutes north of West Palm Beach, Palm City is home to just over 20,000 residents and is part of the Port St. Lucie Metropolitan Area.

Daniel has been in real estate since 2005 when he started with a local real estate brokerage, H&R Properties. Keeping an eye on the economy, Daniel saw the shift in 2006 and positioned himself to adapt to this changing sales market. Providing services such as short sale listings and foreclosure sales, he was able to assist clients in a market when many others were leaving the real estate industry.

In 2006, Daniel moved to Prudential Realty and from 2006 through 2012, he remained one of the top producers in the office.

In September of 2012, Daniel moved to the local RE/MAX office and over the next six years, he was always in the top 25% of the 60+ agent office.

While helping clients, Daniel also wanted to assist other agents who were looking for leadership and guidance in their own business. After mulling the idea of moving into management, Daniel found it a better choice to go out on his own and open a brokerage.

“As I began researching real estate franchise brands, I ended up talking to a local broker who was seriously looking into NextHome,” recalled Daniel. “After hearing the broker was going in a different direction, I jumped at the chance to open my local NextHome brokerage.”

Daniel knows NextHome Atlantic Coast will be an innovative company in the local market.

“I think both agents and clients will find our brokerage to be much more advanced as a real estate resource than they have come to expect locally,” said Daniel.

When not selling real estate, Daniel gives back in a big way. He has involved himself in religious education for years and currently volunteers as a teacher for 5th graders at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. He also serves as an Ambassador for the Palm City Chamber of Commerce.

Daniel and his wife, Marcia, have been together for five years and have a three-year-old son, Marcel.

Please join us in congratulating Daniel and the rest of the team at NextHome Atlantic Coast on the opening of their new NextHome office in Palm City, FL!

NextHome launches a new North Carolina franchisee

NextHome launches a new North Carolina franchisee

Cindy and Dom DePaola

Pleasanton, CA — November 13, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Providence. The brokerage represents the 16th location opened in the state of North Carolina for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Matthews, NextHome Providence will be owned by broker/owner Cindy DePaola and her husband, Dominick. As the Broker in Charge, Cindy will focus on running the day-to-day operations and the sales division, while Dom will handle all back-office operations, accounting, and recruiting new talent for the company.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, townhomes, relocation, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, luxury purchase and sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Matthews, Weddington, Waxhaw, Indian Trail, Monroe, Wingate, Marvin, and the remainder of the greater Charlotte area.

A suburb of Charlotte, the town of Matthews is home to nearly 30,000 residents.

Licensed in real estate since 2007, Cindy started as a REALTOR® in the state of Florida with Premier Group GMAC. When the DePaola family relocated to North Carolina for Dom’s job with Time Warner (now known as Charter), Cindy got her North Carolina real estate license in 2016 and worked for Keller Williams Union County.

Cindy built a very strong individual business, but Dom encouraged her to open their own franchised brokerage. Initially reluctant and not wanting to overextend herself and jeopardize her service level with her clients, Dom showed her NextHome and asked her opinion about what she thought.

“Dom found NextHome in early 2018 and the franchise really wowed me,” said Cindy. “I told him I really loved what the company could offer us if we owned our own franchised location.”

“I should have known better because Dom said to me, ‘I’m glad you like it because I signed an agreement for us as a NextHome franchisee!’” she added with a laugh.

Cindy and Dom really loved the unique branding and how easy the company was to integrate all technology into their existing business.

Cindy says the NextHome Providence difference will be the top-notch marketing NextHome agents will be able to offer their clients.

“The highly visible branding is so different than what is already out there in the real estate space and we definitely stand out versus our competitors,” said Cindy.

When not selling real estate, Cindy and Dom have a passion for volunteering. They volunteer for PTA, as well as local non-profit organizations such as Schools Out Lunch, where backpacks full of food are given out weekly to local families in need.

Dom and Cindy have been married for 18 years and are constantly trying to get their sixteen-year-old son, Dom III, to spend time with his parents.

Please join us in congratulating Cindy, Dom and the rest of the team at NextHome Providence on the opening of their new NextHome office in Matthews, NC!

NextHome Residential Realty opens in Maryland

NextHome Residential Realty opens in Maryland

Joe Holland

Pleasanton, CA — November 9, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Residential Realty. The brokerage represents the second location opened in the state of Maryland for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Ellicott City, NextHome Residential Realty will be owned by top-producing REALTOR® Joe Holland. Leading one of the most productive teams in the area, Joe is making the transition to owning a brokerage while still servicing his clientele.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, townhomes, relocation, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, luxury purchase and sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Ellicott City, Elkridge, Columbia and the counties of Howard, Anne Arundel, and Carroll.

Located 30 minutes west of Baltimore, Ellicott City is home to more than 65,000 residents. Known for its historic district, Ellicott City has the oldest surviving train station in the nation. Built in 1830, the station was the terminus of the original Baltimore & Ohio Railroad line.

Joe comes from a law enforcement background and investigations. He started as a real estate investor in 2000 and over the next eight years, he bought more than 25 homes to fix and flip.

He attained his real estate license in 2003 and worked part time at the local RE/MAX office.

In 2013, after nearly ten years at RE/MAX, Joe moved his very successful business to Keller Williams Realty, where he stepped in as part of a large real estate team. In 2016, Joe went out on his own and built his own team – The Holland Home Team of Keller Williams Integrity.

Joe and his team sold nearly $15 million annually in a market where the average sales price of a home is in the $350,000 range. But even with great sales numbers, Joe knew he wanted to eventually own his own real estate brokerage.

“I was always motivated to open my own brokerage,” said Joe. “I knew it was the right time for me to open a brokerage and offer services to our community other brokerages were not focusing on. I also knew that I wanted to franchise with a company that had the technology in place so I wouldn’t have to build a platform from scratch. NextHome had everything I wanted for my company.”

Joe is proud to share the NextHome Residential Realty difference with residents, as well as local agents looking for a better brokerage to work at.

“Clients can expect one-on-one personalized service complete with top-notch marketing,” said Joe. “Agents can expect a brokerage that will provide all the tools, world-class technology, and personalized business support needed for agents to provide great client service for 2018 and beyond.”

When not selling real estate, Joe volunteers his time with the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. His love for animals has drawn him to giving back and helping in his local community. Joe also enjoys traveling to the tropics, boating and fishing.

Please join us in congratulating Joe and the rest of the team at NextHome Residential Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Ellicott City, MD!

Fadi Toma (left) and Sundus Lewis (right)

Pleasanton, CA — November 5, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Oracle Realty. The brokerage represents the 12th location opened in the state of Michigan for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Warren, NextHome Oracle Realty will be owned by business partners Fadi Toma and Sundus Lewis. Fadi will be the Broker of Record and handle all financials for the company, while Sundus will lead the sales division.

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, luxury purchase and sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Warren, Sterling Heights, Troy, Rochester, Rochester Hills, West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, and the rest of Oakland and Macomb counties.

While based in Warren, the majority of business for NextHome Oracle Realty will be in the city of Troy, which is the center of Oakland County. This area is often known as “Automation Alley” due to the automotive industry and the businesses involved.

Fadi comes from a law background of over 14 years and has been a partner at Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo PC law firm since 2010. He started his real estate brokerage, Oracle Realty, in 2011 after several law clients were looking for real estate representation from someone they had already built trust with.

With a specialization in commercial real estate, business transactions and corporate law, Fadi is uniquely qualified as a broker who can provide expert advice for all agents working at his brokerage.

Before starting her real estate career in 2012, Sundus was a corporate financial analyst. After years in finance, Sundus felt it was the right time to start her own business.

“After looking at several different business options, I found real estate to be the most interesting and a career where I could help many people through home ownership,” said Sundus.

From 2012 to 2018, Sundus worked at Keller Williams Realty in Troy. Successfully increasing her sales volume year over year, she closed 32 transaction sides in 2017.

Fadi and Sundus met each other via a real estate transaction. Sundus had a client who was looking for commercial legal representation and she turned to Fadi for help.

“I was so impressed with the way Sundus represented her client and how detail-oriented she was,” said Fadi. “Add in her go-getter mentality and her unbelievable work ethic and you have someone who I am proud to be in business with.”

“Fadi is incredibly knowledgeable when it came to all things real estate and I knew that being in business with him would be a huge benefit for me and my clients,” added Sundus. “I’m excited to see what NextHome Oracle Realty can do in our community.”

Sundus was the one who found the NextHome franchise. She found the technology, the branding, the professional image, and being fully cloud-based – all wrapped up with the forward-thinking leadership of the company – to be exactly what she wanted in a franchise affiliation.

While they are dedicated professionals, Fadi and Sundus find family to be their real motivation to succeed.

Fadi and his wife of nine years, Mariam, have three children – Jacob (age 7), Joelle (4) and one-year-old John.

Sundus and her husband, Walden, have been married 17 years. The couple has three children – Kenzie (age 16), Louie (14), and Kaylie (12).

Please join us in congratulating Fadi, Sundus and the rest of the team at NextHome Oracle Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Warren, MI!

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!

Tom Miesen
Tom Miesen

Pleasanton, CA — August 21, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Bayside Realty. The brokerage represents the 45th office location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker Tom Miesen and his wife, Lynette. Tom will be the broker of record and in charge of all day-to-day operations. They will be joined on the leadership team by business partners Ann Marie Kurz and Terry Adkins.

Based in Freeport, NextHome Bayside Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Freeport, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and the surrounding areas of Walton and Okaloosa Counties.

Freeport is located in the “panhandle” section of the state of Florida and is approximately two hours west of Tallahassee.

Licensed since 1979, Tom has been a longtime top-producing REALTOR® in Northwest Florida. Since 2005, he has been selling an average of $8 million annually. He had ownership in a local nationally franchised office for nearly 12 years before connecting with another group of high-producing and talented REALTORS®.

“I connected with Dana and Eric Topel who are based out of Niceville, Florida,” said Tom. “Eric was exploring a new franchise at the same time I was looking for a new way of doing business. I wanted a change in the culture and wanted a franchise that would bring a lot of value to our agents.”

“I love leading others and want to make sure any brokerage I’m affiliated with have productive and competent agents,” he added. “I was fortunate to connect with the Topels and we launched our NextHome brokerage in 2016.”

After two years under the NextHome system, Tom saw the benefits of what NextHome could do for agents and brokers alike. In Spring 2018, Tom and Lynette felt it was the right time to go out on their own.

“NextHome Bayside Realty is one of the only nationally franchised brokerages in the city of Freeport,” said Tom. “It’s the tools and systems we will be able to offer our clients that is a big differentiator than some of our competitors.”

Tom gives back to the real estate community as well. He is serving his second year as a Director for Florida REALTORS®. He also is the 2018 Treasurer for the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS® (ECAR). Tom is currently running for the 2019 Vice President for ECAR.

Tom and Lynette have been married for 40 years and have four children and three grandchildren. They love to travel and recently took a trip to New Mexico earlier this year.

Please join us in congratulating Tom, Lynette, Ann, Terry, and the rest of the team at NextHome Bayside Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Freeport, FL!

NextHome Greater Realty is the newest addition to the NextHome franchise

Buz and Linda Berson

Pleasanton, CA — August 15, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Greater Realty. The brokerage represents the 44th office location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

The company will be owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Buz and Linda Berson. Buz will serve as the broker of record and supervise agent production. Linda will be in charge of the sales division and training for the brokerage. They will be joined on the leadership team by their son, Bailey Kapci. He will serve as the Director of Operations for NextHome Greater Realty.

Based in Punta Gorda, NextHome Greater Realty will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, second homes, investment, luxury, and land deals for the areas of Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, and the surrounding areas.

Punta Gorda is located 30 minutes north of Fort Myers and is home to approximately 20,000 residents. The name Punta Gorda translates to “Fat Point” and has been an incorporated city since the mid-1800’s.

A serial entrepreneur, Buz has been running successful businesses for decades. Formerly the owner of the largest outdoor furniture store in the United States, Buz has been involved in real estate since 1980. He spent most of the 1980’s as a commercial real estate developer. In 1986, he started his own residential property development company, Berson Property Developments.

Linda joined as the leasing manager for Berson Property Developments and headed up that entire division.

Opening Berson Properties in the early 1990’s, the Bersons grew the residential real estate brokerage to more than 25 agents with annual sales in excess of $100 million. In 2007, they sold the company to a Century 21 franchisee and relocated their family to the area of Naples, FL.

Never one to rest and retire, Buz began building high-end homes in the Naples area. With square footage exceeding 4,000 feet, these high-end homes were in demand for the residents of Naples. From 2015 to 2017, as fast as Buz built them, Linda sold them equally as fast.

While they were doing very well, the Bersons wanted more to offer to their clientele.

“We wanted to integrate modern technology to what we could offer our clients,” said Buz. “We wanted to have that edge to provide better service to our clients.”

“We interviewed several different real estate franchises,” added Linda. “But only NextHome provided us with the difference we were looking for.”

Bailey will add a new dimension to the brokerage as well. Spending the last 13 years in high-level restaurant management, his leadership and management skills will maintain a standard of customer service for NextHome Greater Realty that will be a real difference in their community.

When not selling real estate, the Bersons enjoy a life of what they describe as “simple abundance.” The married couple of 28 years spend time with their poodle, Rose, and take in all the wonderful amenities Punta Gorda has to offer.

Bailey and his wife, Paris, describe themselves as “foodies” and love exploring new restaurants whenever they travel. As a former restaurant General Manager, Bailey knows and appreciates when a restaurant can deliver beyond expectations.

Please join us in congratulating Buz, Linda, Bailey, and the rest of the team at NextHome Greater Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Punta Gorda, FL!

NextHome Expands in Wisconsin with New Franchisee

NextHome Expands in Wisconsin with New Franchisee

Rochelle Gamauf
Rochelle Gamauf

Pleasanton, CA— February 21, 2017 NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the NextHome franchise – NextHome Lake Country. This represents the 4th NextHome office location in the state of Wisconsin.

Based out of Waukesha, the NextHome Lake Country will be owned and operated by real estate broker, Rochelle Gamauf, and will provide real estate services such as residential sales, land sales, luxury home sales, investment property sales and purchases for first time homebuyers.

The company will serve the residents of Waukesha, Delafield, Brookfield, Pewaukee and the remainder of Waukesha County.

The city of Waukesha is located 30 minutes west of Milwaukee and is home to over 70,000 residents.

Licensed since 2008, Gamauf designed her real estate business to combine innovative real estate marketing and traditional relationship building. This mixture created a world-class client service model which excelled her business to over 35 closed transactions annually.

While she knew she wanted to one day open her own brokerage, it wasn’t until mid-2016 when Gamauf seriously began the process.

“I’ve always wanted to own my own real estate company,” said Gamauf. “I truly have a passion for real estate and I wanted to work alongside other REALTORS® who felt the same.”

Gamauf needed a franchise that would back her with resources THAT would provide the tools and technology to better serve clients.

“I found out about NextHome on Inman News,” recalls Gamauf. “I evaluate things differently than most. I look for a reason to say no. The more I researched about NextHome, I couldn’t find any reason why the company wasn’t a great fit for my new brokerage.”

“I love how NextHome Lake Country provides our agents all the technology that would normally cost a fortune to piece together,” she added. “We can now give them top-of-the-line technology in an affordable format. I’m very happy with my decision to join NextHome.”

When not selling real estate, Gamauf spends time with her husband, Jim, and their three children – Justin (20 years old), Kyle (17), and Megan (15). The Gamuafs take in all that Wisconsin has to offer such as boating on the lake and enjoying the outdoors.

Please join us in welcoming Rochelle and the rest of her team at NextHome Lake Country for the opening of their brand new NextHome brokerage!
