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.

Run Your Own Race

Run Your Own Race

This November marked my 14th year attending the National Association of REALTORS® Conference and Expo. I spent the first 11 as one of the 1,000+ vendors peddling product as REALTORS® go from booth to booth, trick or treating for tchotchkes and the next shiny piece of technology that promises to change their business forever. It is only the last three years I have been on the franchisor side, searching for speakers who inspire and share the latest real estate trends. Attending usually results in lots of lobby meetings, networking with today’s influencers and reminiscing of yesterday’s newsmakers. It’s also interesting to see the many real estate legislators, councils, and state reps debating and lobbying for their own political gain and the protection of those they were elected to serve. While it is an exhausting five days, NAR Annual is guaranteed to be anything but boring!

What I found most fascinating is we, as an industry, seem to be reacting to our fear of people, companies, and technology rather than moving our industry forward. The world around us is changing and evolving at a pace that we are scientifically not able to adapt with. This is a fact. It is said that 65 percent of kindergarteners today will end up in careers that don’t even exist yet. Ten years ago, the title “Social Media Manager” or “Mobile App Developer” would have been an imaginary job. Today, we cannot imagine waking up without checking our notifications or snapping photos for social media or using apps that remind us when to stand up at work, how to get places, how our stocks are doing, and so much more! As a society, we have become dependent on technology to do the simplest things. So why do we as an industry keep circling and repurposing the same topics and fears year after year?

We are all consumers. I would even go as far as saying 10:10 of us could not go one week without internet/WiFi connection. And find me one REALTOR® in our industry who is not happy about the progression of things like email, paperless contracts, UBER, Netflix, iTunes, Alexa, 3D tours, or Amazon. Why do we accept and welcome change and progress in every aspect of our life but fight it in our own industry? As if the buyers and sellers of real estate are not the same?

So while the real estate industry is still sorting out some version of “How do we take our data back? When will Zillow become a brokerage? Are iBuyers the next disruptors? Should we consolidate the MLSs (or remain 690 too many)? Does responding to leads in under 5 minutes result in more business?” and so on… NextHome will celebrate the fact that we are opening an average of almost 3 offices and adding more than 50 NextHomies each week. We will continue to refine our systems to make them better and more competitive. We will continue to expand beyond the boundaries of what everyone says is possible while delivering the very best experience to our franchisees, so they can extend it to their agents who can then extend it to their clients.

What was my greatest takeaway from this year’s NAR Annual? Run your own race, love those running it with you, and do not get lost in the noise. Do not become complacent or stagnant and stop worrying about what your competition is doing. This is a journey with a lot of pit stops and the scenery is changing fast. If you keep pressing forward and moving your business to the next destination, you will open yourself to a world you never knew was possible.

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 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!

NextHome Hive Properties Opens in the San Diego Area

NextHome Hive Properties Opens in the San Diego Area

Jose Frausto (left) and Nichole Quiroz (right)

Pleasanton, CA — November 1, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Hive Properties. The brokerage represents the 60th location opened in the state of California for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Chula Vista, NextHome Hive Properties will be owned by Jose Frausto and will have Nichole Quiroz serve as the Director of Operations for the brokerage. Warren Barrett will be the Broker of Record for the company.

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, vacation home purchases, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Chula Vista, La Jolla, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas, North Park, South Park, Kensington, Point Loma, and the rest of the greater San Diego area.

With more than 14 years in real estate, Jose is no stranger to all phases of property development. An experienced house flipper, he started a holding company, Main Group Holdings LLC, in 2016 in order to acquire properties for rehab and resale.

After meeting Nichole in 2017, Jose found her to be a perfect fit to run the real estate division of Main Group Holdings LLC. At that time, Nichole was working for a hard money lender who was working on funding of a development project Jose was involved in.

“I was so impressed with Nichole’s attention to detail and her straightforward honesty and her ambitious nature,” said Jose. “She says what she is going to do and always delivers on her promises.”

“The opportunity to work with Jose came at a perfect time in my career,” said Nichole. “I have a background in land development for more than ten years, so expanding the real estate division of Jose’s company was something I was very interested in.”

Jose and Nichole say that the NextHome Hive Properties difference is their ability to provide several services a home buyer or home seller would want.

“NextHome Hive Properties is just one division under the Main Group Holdings LLC family of companies,” said Jose. “With companies that handle solar, plumbing, and title just to name a few, we can provide a one stop shop for all of our clients.”

Wanting to provide that edge for Nichole and the real estate division, Jose looked into franchising and found NextHome to be the right fit.

“By aligning with NextHome, we are now able to leverage a nationwide network of real estate professionals,” said Jose.

“We really love the clean and beautiful branding, the forward-focused technology, and the ability to run our local business as we see fit,” added Nichole. “We love having a real estate company where adding value is easy for us to do.”

When not selling real estate, Jose and Nichole each find family to be their real focus.

Jose and his wife, Xilma, have been married 15 years. They have two children – Isabella (age 7) and Aaron (4). Jose says his favorite activity is anything that allows him to spend time with the family. You’ll often find them enjoying most Southern California theme parks, specifically Disneyland.

Nichole and her husband, Alfonso, have also been married 15 years and the couple have two children – Dylan (age 14) and Nora (12). Nichole is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and helps people achieve optimal health through workout and nutrition. She also volunteers time and efforts in helping with breast cancer research.

Please join us in congratulating Jose, Nichole and the rest of the team at NextHome Hive Properties on the opening of their new NextHome office in Chula Vista, CA!

NextHome Solid Ground Opens Brokerage in Idaho

NextHome Solid Ground Opens Brokerage in Idaho

Janna McRoy

Pleasanton, CA — October 23, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Solid Ground. The brokerage represents the sixth location opened in the state of Idaho for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Solid Ground will be owned and operated by designated broker and top-producing REALTOR® Janna McRoy. With over 18 years in the real estate industry, Janna will bring a wealth of experience and guidance to agents at the brokerage.

NextHome Solid Ground 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, sellers, and builders in the cities of Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, Rathdrum, Hayden, Sandpoint, and the remainder of Kootenai County. The brokerage will also specialize in relocation services for out-of-area buyers and sellers.

Janna started her real estate career in 2001 on the mortgage lending side. As a senior loan officer and manager for a national mortgage company, not only was she one of the top loan officers for her company, but Janna was also responsible for hiring and training new loan officers who joined the company.

In 2005, Janna made the switch to the real estate sales side. Her business continued to thrive, and she helped many families through the difficult change of the market and economic downturn.

Selling as many as 52 transactions in a single year, and with demand increasing, she made the conscious decision to shift her focus to providing more quality service to a select number of clients instead of taking on many different clients.

“When my business was growing, I decided to restructure and grow my team in order to provide first-class service to the community I serve,” said Janna. “By doing that, not only were my clients happier, but I was a better agent in representing them.”

In 2015, Janna opened her own brokerage – Solid Ground Real Estate. It was important to tailor her business specifically for her clients using high- level marketing and technology, with a foundation of integrity and personalized service. By owning a brokerage committed to those standards, clients could count on a great experience.

After three very successful years as owner/operator of Solid Ground Real Estate, Janna wanted to add another dimension to her company.

“It was a tough decision for me to franchise but having the NextHome support team to assist in the branding and technology integration was key in choosing NextHome,” said Janna. “There was no need to duplicate efforts. It was very easy aligning with a company who had the same beliefs as I did.”

“Aligning with NextHome allows our agents to have the competitive edge and a level of marketing and technology not normally seen in our area,” she added. “Sellers will have confidence that their home will be marketed aggressively and with the highest quality. My clients will have access to the best tools in the industry.”

Janna says NextHome Solid Ground will be a community-based company with a family-oriented feel. The company’s agents will work together to create a year-round brokerage committed to helping the community not only with real estate needs, but charitable events as well.

When not selling real estate, Janna and her husband, Eric, spend time with their 11-year-old son, Ryan. The family enjoys camping, spending time outdoors and taking in all that Northern Idaho has to offer.

Please join us in congratulating Janna and the rest of the team at NextHome Solid Ground on the opening of their new NextHome office in Post Falls, ID!

The AHS Top 10: Best “Smart Home” Voice-Control Devices

The AHS Top 10: Best “Smart Home” Voice-Control Devices

Wondering what the thermostat is set on, but you really don’t want to get out of bed? Wishing the TV was on in the background while you cook, but you’re already elbow deep in the mixing bowl? Have no fear — voice-controlled home automation devices are here. The selection appears to grow every month; however, here’s our latest list of the top 10 “smart home” voice-controlled devices.

1. Vocca Light

Forget clapping; voice-controlled lights are where it’s at. And they’re easier to obtain than you may think. Vocca is a plug-and-play gadget that works straight from the box. In fact, it’s as easy to set up as it is to change a lightbulb. The best part? It can recognize your voice commands from up to 15 feet away.

2. Ivee Sleek

Speaking of 15 feet away, Ivee Sleek’s microphone can pick up commands from that distance, as well. And we’re not just talking about adjusting the thermostat. Want to create a new playlist? Schedule a ride with Uber? Ivee Sleek can handle it.

3. Jibo

The Jibo goes beyond connecting to your smart devices. Its built-in, high-resolution cameras (that recognize and track faces, might we add) can also capture pictures and enable video calling, too.

4. Athom Homey

Live in a multi-lingual household? You can take advantage of home voice control, too! The Athom Homey’s unique ability to understand commands in several languages makes it stand above the competition.

5. LG Vacuum Cleaner

No, we won’t judge you for talking to your vacuum cleaner. Especially if it’s one that can perform different cleaning patterns, such as spot cleaning those extra dirty areas, with a simple command.

6. Mycroft

Mycroft doesn’t simply lock the doors or switch on the lights. It can actually sync up with your streaming services, such as Netflix, and stream the content right on your Roku or Chromecast.

7. Samsung Smart TV

Tired of looking for the remote? Too lazy to get up and push buttons on the back of the TV? No problem. Samsung’s Smart TV allows you to control it — including apps like Netflix — without lifting a finger.

8. Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat With Voice Control

This device goes beyond the typical learning thermostat — it can actually expand its “command vocabulary” based on interactions with you.

9. Amazon Echo

Alexa is going to become your new best friend. We just know it. Can she play music? Sure. Answer questions and tell you the news and weather? Of course. Control your lights, thermostat, etc.? Easy.

10. Apple Homekit

Of course we couldn’t talk about home voice control without mentioning Siri. After all, she basically pioneered our voice-activated obsession, right? With Homekit, you can control all your smart devices at one time, ensuring a unified home environment. What’s more, you don’t even have to be home to have control. Just ask Siri to handle everything.

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 Closes Biggest Transaction in the Franchise’s History

NextHome Closes Biggest Transaction in the Franchise’s History

Orli Rudolph (left) and DJ Khaled (right)

High-profile artist, producer and social media star, DJ Khaled, added another win to his list of successes with his recently purchased 12,750-square-feet Miami Beach mansion. Represented by one of our NextHomies, the hip-hop icon’s new home is the biggest transaction closed by a member of our franchise.

Listed at $25.9 million, the lavish waterfront property features a total of nine bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms—including a five-bedroom main house, four-bedroom guest house, safe room, outdoor shower, home theater, elevator, and a swimming pool nearly 80 feet long. Khaled was able to scoop up the listing for only $21.8 million.

Our very own Orli Rudolph from the Rudolph & Jerry Team with NextHome Realty Professionals represented Khaled on this deal. Born in South Beach and raised in North Miami Beach, Orli has a keen awareness and unparalleled intuition of Miami’s luxury real estate market.

Orli and her business partner, Matthew Jerry, joined the Ft. Lauderdale-based office in early 2017. Prior to joining NextHome Realty Professionals, the team spent five years building a client base that has resulted in hundreds of happy homeowners and lifelong friendships.

Orli has a strong reputation for professionalism, commitment and has helped numerous clients invest, buy, sell and rent properties.

Please join us in congratulating Orli Rudolph on closing the largest transaction thus far for our NextHome franchise!
