NextHome Solid Ground expands into Spokane, Washington

NextHome Solid Ground expands into Spokane, Washington

Janna McRoy

Pleasanton, CA — September 9, 2021 — NextHome is pleased to announce to expansion of NextHome Solid Ground in Spokane, Washington. The brokerage represents the 511th office to join the NextHome franchise out of 532 active office locations across the country.

NextHome Solid Ground (Spokane) builds on the success of the brokerage’s first location in Post Falls, Idaho – just 30 minutes away. 

NextHome Solid Ground is owned by Janna McRoy, a high-producing professional with more than 20 years of experience in the real estate industry. 

Janna opened NextHome Solid Ground in 2018, filling a need for top-tier real estate service in the booming Post Falls/Coeur d’Alene area. In just three years, the Washington-Idaho border town area has become one of the hottest real estate markets in the U.S.

“With the influx of buyers, Idaho prices have increased, which created a need for us to offer our clients broader options to fit their home buying needs,” Janna said. “With the expansion, we also gain the opportunity for our agents to service a neighboring state. We have great agents who are licensed in both states and are looking forward to helping clients find the perfect home.”

In addition to residential properties, NextHome Solid Ground will service rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, and land sales. The brokerage serves a 100-mile radius around Spokane, including the Deer Park and Cheney areas.

“We are thrilled to bring the NextHome Solid Ground culture from North Idaho into Spokane,” Janna said. “Some of our core values include representing every client with exceptional service, consistent efficiency, resourcefulness, and an advanced skill set, through experience. Our clients become our friends, and we are excited to continue to build our relationship-based business.” 

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. In 2018, she opened NextHome Solid Ground, offering her clients a new level of service. 

“It was very easy joining a company who had the same beliefs as I did,” Janna said. “Aligning with NextHome allows our agents to have the competitive edge and a level of marketing and technology not normally seen in our area. 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.” 

When not selling real estate, Janna and her husband Eric love to spend quality time with their 14- year-old son, Ryan. The family enjoys boating and spending time outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

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 Spokane, Washington!

NextHome Ranked the No. 1 Franchise in the Country

Pleasanton, CA — February 11, 2021 — NextHome was recently named No. 1 on Franchise Business Review’s list of the Top Franchises for 2021. This is the 16th annual ranking of the 200 best franchise opportunities as rated by franchise business owners. 

NextHome, Inc. is an independently owned national franchisor with a focus on changing the way consumers work with local agents and shop for real estate online. The NextHome franchise, founded in 2014, has 480+ offices and 4,400+ members across 48 states. The company closes over 29,000 transactions annually worth over $8.2B in volume.

Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings and awards for franchise companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of the top 200 franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises

NextHome was among over 300 franchise brands, representing more than 28,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. NextHome’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. 

“There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees in order to educate potential buyers and help them choose which franchise to invest in. This year’s Franchisee Satisfaction Award winners truly are the best-of-the-best.”

NextHome’s 2021 No. 1 overall ranking follows receiving the No. 3 overall ranking and No. 1 ranking in the real estate category in 2020. 

“Being ranked the No. 1 franchise overall by Franchise Business Review is an incredible achievement, and it’s all thanks to our members and amazing corporate staff,” said James Dwiggins, Chief Executive Officer of NextHome, Inc. “Without their hard work and passion for making a difference in the real estate industry, NextHome wouldn’t be where it is today. Our Humans Over Houses philosophy is fostered in every decision we make as a franchise. Receiving this award confirms we are leading in the right direction for our members and is the reason we love what we do every day.”

In addition to this list, T3 Sixty also names individuals who are recognized as the industry’s up-and-coming leaders on the 2020 Watchlist.

James and Tei have worked alongside one another since 1999. In May of 2014, the two founded NextHome, Inc. with a vision to make a change in the real estate industry. The NextHome difference lies in our consumer-centric branding, innovative technology, and continuous member support. 

As the NextHome franchise continues to grow, so does James’s ranking on the SP200. He was ranked at No. 158 in 2017, No. 105 in 2018, and No. 72 in 2019.

He also shares his knowledge and perspective at numerous conferences and events throughout the country. 

“Since day one, NextHome has been dedicated to maintaining a high-set bar of marketing, technology, and customer service standards,” said James. “However, our success lies with our members who have embraced the NextHome uniqueness, and want to make a difference in the lives of those looking to find their next home. Recognitions like these are not possible without our members.” 

Tei’s addition to this year’s Watchlist reaffirms his place among the innovators, dealmakers, and movers-and-shakers who made a noteworthy impact in our industry over the past year. The recognition identifies the dedication Tei maintains as he’s responsible for overseeing corporate operations as well as the creation and implementation of new technologies that give NextHome the edge to stay ahead of the competition.  

“When James and I started NextHome, we never imagined our vision would grow to where we are today,” said Tei. “It all comes back to the people – our hard-working corporate team, our amazing members in the field, and the vendors we hand-select to support them.”

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all NextHome members across the country for making recognitions like this possible. Our company leaders are making a difference in the real estate industry thanks to your ongoing support.

NextHome opens first franchised office in the state of Delaware

NextHome opens first franchised office in the state of Delaware

Bobbi Slagle

Pleasanton, CA — February 7, 2019 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Preferred. The brokerage represents the very first office location opened in the state of Delaware for the NextHome franchise.

The brokerage will be led by broker/owner Bobbi Slagle. She and her administrative team will handle all day-to-day operations for the company.

The team at NextHome Preferred will handle all types of residential property sales such as first-time home buyers, investors, military and veteran services, land, relocation, foreclosures, short sales, and all forms of residential sales of 1-4 units.

Located in central Delaware, the Dover-based NextHome Preferred brokerage is located within a 90-minute drive of most major cities in the region such as Philadelphia, Baltimore and Atlantic City. Dover is the capital of Delaware and is the second largest city in the state, with nearly 40,000 residents.

The brokerage will service various areas throughout Central Delaware including all of Kent County, which encompasses the cities of Dover, Magnolia, Harrington, Milford, Camden, Bowers Beach, Clayton, Farmington, Felton, Smyrna, Hartly, Houston, as well as parts of the bordering counties of New Castle and Sussex.

Dover is home to the Dover International Speedway where various NASCAR events are held yearly. Additionally, the Dover Air Force Base is one of the most heavily used military bases on the Northern East Coast and a large part of the community of Kent County.

A REALTOR® since 2004, Bobbi started her career in Dover with a large nationally franchised office for the first three years. Doing very well, she moved on to the boutique firm, First Class Properties, where she used the company’s innovation and community commitment to further advance her personal business.

In 2009, Bobbi attained her broker’s license and was promoted to be the broker/manager for the 15-agent brokerage from 2011 until 2016. Even though she led the company as the broker and office manager, Bobbi was still able to sell real estate at a high level. From 2007 on, Bobbi has ranked in the top 10% of all REALTORS® in Kent County.

“Leading my colleagues taught me a lot about how to help others achieve their goals by adapting to various personalities and learning how to best communicate with different agents with different needs,” said Bobbi. “I’m most proud of our agents who worked extremely hard and pushed through what was a down market in the early 2010s.”

In January 2016, when the local Brokerage affiliated with a franchise, Bobbi felt the need to make a move to RE/MAX Horizons in Dover to free up some time to focus more on her family and lead a small team. In the two years at the company, Bobbi increased her personal sales to more than 30 transactions a year and grew her property management business, 5 Star Property Management, as well.

“Our 5 Star Realty Group team was doing really well, but I saw an opportunity and a need in our local market for a brokerage that would provide guidance, leadership, accountability and growth for real estate agents.”

After a lot of discussion and research, Bobbi found NextHome by accident.

“I was actually trying to research a different real estate franchise when I stumbled upon NextHome,” she said. “Other companies didn’t make me feel good about what they offered. But after taking some time and looking at NextHome.com, I was very intrigued.”

“Since the moment I was able to speak with the team at NextHome, I’ve been extremely happy with every step along the way since. It’s been very exciting to be aligned with a company with the same consumer focused values at the core of what they do.”

Bobbi loved the clean branding, the standardization of marketing, the high-level technology, and the professionalism the company created and maintained.

Bobbi has spent years perfecting her craft through education and certifications. She has earned accreditations such as Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE), the Military Residential Specialist (MilRES), and the Military Relocation Professional Designation to name just a few.

She has also made a commitment to volunteering in her local real estate board as not only a member of the Board of Directors but she’s served on the Kent County Association of REALTORS® (KCAR) Professional Standards Committee, the Education Committee, the TREND MLS Board of Directors and in 2018, Bobbi was awarded the REALTOR® of the Year.

Bobbi and her husband Charles have been married for 15 years. Between the two of them, they have three children – daughters Amber (19 years old) and Madison (15) and son Wesley (18). The family loves to travel and recently took a trip to Costa Rica and Jamaica.

Please join us in congratulating Bobbi and the rest of the team at NextHome Preferred on their new NextHome office in Dover, DE!

NextHome continues expansion in Florida

NextHome continues expansion in Florida

Angel Pabon (left) and Pedro Rivera

Pleasanton, CA — December 29, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome My Way – Longwood Branch. The brokerage represents the 52nd location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

Based in Longwood, the company will be owned and operated by business partners Pedro Rivera and Angel Pabon. The top-producing REALTORS® will each have specific roles within the company. Rivera will serve as the CEO and handle the day-to-day operations for the company, while Pabon will handle transaction supervision as the Broker of Record and work on company growth and talent acquisition.

The brokerage will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, investment, luxury, condos, relocation, land deals, and military/veteran services to the areas of Longwood and the surrounding Orlando Metropolitan Area.

With an already successful NextHome My Way location in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Pabon’s relocation to Florida opened the door for a branch location.

“When we started NextHome My Way in Milwaukee in March 2018, we expected a great result, but never could have expected what actually happened,” said Rivera.

What happened was that the team at NextHome My Way went from selling 71 transactions in 2017 to more than 130 transaction sides in 2018.

Rivera credits the increase in business to the commitment to growth and education by the company’s 11 agents.

“We are fortunate to have agents who are career oriented and committed to being the very best representatives for their clients,” he added.

The business partners met through collaboration in previous business dealings. Even though Pabon has been licensed since 2015 and Rivera since 2016, they have quickly excelled in real estate due to their vast business knowledge from their previous careers.

Rivera has an extensive background in the IT field, specializing in marketing and graphic design. Pabon worked for many years as a promoter and high-level representation for musical artists.

Both men worked at Shorewest Realtors in Wauwatosa, WI. During that time, they both sold a lot of real estate with Pabon selling an incredible 50 transactions in his first year. The high volume of sales earned Pabon the award for Rookie of the Year for the company.

When Rivera joined the brokerage in 2017, he teamed with Pabon, as they built a sales team of four members named “My Team of REALTORS®.”

With a well-rounded team using expert marketing, online advertising and local connections, Pabon and Rivera felt 2018 was the right time to go out on their own and open their own brokerage.

“We wanted to expand and grow,” said Rivera. “The model at the brokerage where we were couldn’t support what we were looking to do, so it made sense for us to go out on our own.”

“We loved the high-level technology NextHome provided us,” added Pabon. “The value we received as brokers far exceeded the cost involved with joining a franchise. We’ve had a very successful 2018 under the NextHome brand and we can’t wait to bring the NextHome My Way branch to the Longwood community.”

When not selling real estate, both men focus on spending time with their families.

Rivera and his fiancé, Jexayra, have four children aged 10 months to 8 years. He enjoys cooking and being a father. Pabon and his wife, Esther, also have four children – ages 10 to 17. Pabon describes himself as an admitted workaholic, but never at the expense of being there for the family.

Please join us in congratulating Pedro, Angel, and the rest of the team at NextHome My Way on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Longwood, FL!

NextHome Arrowsmith Realty opens in Apopka, Florida

NextHome Arrowsmith Realty opens in Apopka, Florida

Natalie Arrowsmith

Pleasanton, CA — October 26, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Arrowsmith Realty. The brokerage represents the 47th location opened in the state of Florida for the NextHome franchise.

NextHome Arrowsmith Realty will be owned and operated by broker and top-producing REALTOR® Natalie Arrowsmith. As a fourth generation Apopkan, Natalie is proud to bring the NextHome franchise to her community. Her father, Bill Arrowsmith, served as the Vice Mayor for the city for decades. Natalie is proud to continue service to the Apopka community for the Arrowsmith family.

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, second home and vacation home purchases, and land sales for buyers and sellers for the cities of Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Mount Dora, and the rest of Lake, Seminole and Orange Counties.

Located 15 northwest of Downtown Orlando, Apopka is home to approximately 42,000 residents. Considered part of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metropolitan area, Apopka is in the heart of a 2.1 million resident metro area.

Before real estate, Natalie worked for several years at the Florida League of Cities, an organization focused on promoting local self-government. From 1999-2004, Natalie served several roles within the organization, with her primary role as the Policy Holder Relations Manager.

In late 2004, Natalie moved to North Carolina and started her real estate career with Century 21 Real Estate in the city of Waynesville. At that time, many Floridians were purchasing investment properties in North Carolina and Natalie was able to represent many of these investors.

After several very successful years selling in North Carolina, Natalie moved back to Apopka and worked at RE/MAX from 2008 until 2010. During those three years, she grew her business with traditional sales and the addition of foreclosure/short sales to see more than 100 transaction sides closed annually – making her one of the top agents in her area.

In 2010, Natalie opened her own brokerage – Arrowsmith Realty. Knowing the increase in her business and the needs of her clients, she took it upon herself to open a brokerage that would provide the level of service her clients had come to expect. Under Natalie’s leadership, she grew the company to 11 agents.

While not originally looking to franchise her office, Natalie’s desire to always provide world-class service led her to look at NextHome.

“We were a successful boutique brokerage that served our clients well, but I wanted to be able to provide even more,” said Natalie. “Not just for our clients, but for the Arrowsmith Realty agents as well.”

Introduced to NextHome in 2017 by friend and NextHome franchisee, Paige Brewer, Natalie was interested in the company because of the fresh branding and the fun, forward-thinking way of doing business.

“NextHome Arrowsmith Realty will be known as the company where agents will be able to provide the very best in technology, tools and marketing for their clients, wrapped up in a fun environment,” said Natalie. “Our commitment to the community will be a huge part of who we are.”

Natalie gives back to the real estate industry as well. She is the 2018 Secretary for the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association and will serve as Treasurer in 2019. She has been on the Board of Directions for her local association for the past four years.

Through her involvement in the Women’s Council of REALTORS® for the past five years, Natalie has made a real impact on the Florida real estate community. At the national level, she will serve as NAR Director in 2019.

When not selling real estate, Natalie is all about family. She and her fiancée, Mark, are getting married May 2019. Between them, they have four children – sons Cody (28) and Luke (9); and daughters Cassidy (22) and Lily (7). She also has a granddaughter, one-year-old Ava Rose.

Please join us in congratulating Natalie and the rest of the team at NextHome Arrowsmith Realty on the opening of their new NextHome office in Apopka, FL!

NextHome Grand opens two locations in Colorado

NextHome Grand opens two locations in Colorado

Nathalie Ames (left), Ross Beede, and Eileen Turner (right)

Pleasanton, CA — October 11, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our two newest additions to the franchise, NextHome Grand (Mesa) and NextHome Grand (Grand Junction). The brokerages represent the 10th and 11th locations opened in the state of Colorado for the NextHome franchise.

The two brokerages will be owned and operated by business partners Nathalie Ames, Eileen Turner and Ross Beede. All three partners have been top-producing agents in their markets and will each have specific roles within the company.

Nathalie will be the managing broker for both locations with Ross and Eileen switching off as the managing broker in 2019 and 2020. This strategy will allow each owner to focus on their personal business while the acting managing broker can focus on growing the company and providing guidance for agents at the company.

NextHome Grand’s two locations will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, luxury homes, farm and ranch properties, rehab and resale property listings, investment sales, and land sales for buyers and sellers.

The offices will service Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Loma, Mack, Clifton, De Beque, Mesa, Molina, Collbran, Parachute, Rifle, Silt, Glenwood Springs, and the remainder of Mesa County.

With a combined experience of more than 40 years in the real estate industry, Ross and Eileen have been a top-producing team since 2015. Working with buyers and sellers in addition to projects such as real estate developments and investment properties, The Turner/Beede Team sold more than 90 transactions in 2017.

A third-generation REALTOR®, Nathalie started her real estate career in 1996 in Chicago, Illinois. For nearly 20 years, Nathalie sold an average of $13 million annually and was one of the top-producing agents in the area. When she relocated to Mesa, Colorado, she picked up right where she left off, selling real estate at a high level. In 2017, Nathalie sold 27 homes to the tune of $11 million in volume.

Nathalie was introduced to NextHome in January 2018 and came to the NextHome Conference held in San Diego, California in March 2018.

“When I went to San Diego and saw NextHome up close and personal, I loved the newer company with a management team open to new ideas with an eye on the future of our industry,” said Nathalie. “I love the idea of partnering not only with business partners who I respect like Eileen and Ross, but with a franchise that has leaders who have real estate knowledge, experience and a stellar reputation.”

When it came time to consider opening a NextHome office, the business partners were no strangers to owning their own companies.

Ross opened his own real estate brokerage, Grand Junction Real Source, in 2001. As the broker/owner of that office, he grew the company to nearly 30 agents. He merged the office with a nationally franchised office in 2008 and stayed on as the manager for the office for the next four years.

Not only is Nathalie a top-producing agent, but she is also the owner of Blink Coffee Company, a success full-service coffee shop, bar and restaurant.

When Eileen and Ross joined Nathalie at NextHome’s corporate office for a week of training classes for new franchisees, they had a similar experience.

“NextHome is a fresh, innovative and progressive company with a corporate staff eager to help our agents,” said Ross. “I really like the energy from the team and I’m excited about what the future holds for NextHome Grand.”

“It’s always been my dream to open and launch a business that I could own and be proud of,” said Eileen. “I know that with our team and our specific strengths, we will be able to really provide a brokerage with excellent service for our communities and also give agents a company they will be proud to work at.”

Please join us in congratulating Nathalie, Eileen, Ross and the rest of the team at NextHome Grand on the opening of their two new NextHome offices in Grand Junction and Mesa, CO!

The company will be owned and operated by real estate broker and top-selling REALTOR® Kerri Woodson. Kerri will handle all day-to-day operations and will serve as the principal broker for the company. She will be joined on the leadership team by her husband, Gordon. With over 20 years of experience as a contractor, Gordon will bring his knowledge of construction and housing development to the firm. He will also handle all technology support and web development for NextHome Moves.

Based in Clarksville, NextHome Moves will provide real estate services such as single-family residential sales, first-time home buyers, multi-family, new construction, land purchase and acquisition, and veteran relocation services in Clarksville, Springfield, Pleasant View, and the remainder of Cheatham, Robertson and Montgomery counties.

Clarksville is the fifth largest city in the state of Tennessee. With a population of just over 150,000, Clarksville is located 40 minutes northwest of Nashville near the Tennessee/Kentucky state border line.

Kerri started her real estate career in 2010 with a local Prudential Realty in Clarksville. Doing well in selling homes for the first three years as a REALTOR®, Kerri made the move to Coldwell Banker Real Estate.

In 2016, Kerri was introduced to the NextHome franchise at about the same time she opened her own real estate brokerage. That year, she opened Millwood Real Estate and focused on creating a company that would help agents bring real value to their clients. Although she stayed in contact with NextHome’s Vice President of Sales, Charis Moreno, Kerri felt right about staying as an independent brokerage at that time.

“Opening my own brokerage was an exciting opportunity, but I also wanted to make sure I continued building on my skills as a broker so I could lead others effectively,” said Kerri. “By focusing on improving as a broker, I felt I could provide insight and guidance to agents who were looking for a place to work where they could excel.”

Gordon’s construction business, Woodson Construction, brought a unique advantage to the company as well. As a contractor who built as many as 15 homes a year, Gordon created inventory for Millwood Real Estate to list and sell. Having this inventory to sell gave the agents at the brokerage a significant advantage with these newly constructed homes available for them to hold open houses and draw in potential buyers.

In 2018, Kerri felt it was time to grow the brokerage and decided to open up discussions again with Charis.

“When it came time to offer more to agents at our brokerage, I found NextHome to be the right franchise to partner with, said Kerri. “With the progressive technology platform and the relatable leadership team, we love the support of NextHome. We feel like we are in business with people who want to help us be the very best.”

Kerri describes the NextHome Moves difference as a company with great culture and an atmosphere of learning to be great businessmen and businesswomen. The brokerage will also create and maintain standards and systems that will make the agents successful.

Kerri and Gordon have been married for 25 years and have two children. Their oldest son, Colton (age 18), is attending college in St. Louis, Missouri at Maryville University and is in the MBA program of Sports Business Management. Their youngest son, Brody (age 16), is a high school junior who plays for the school’s football team.

Please join us in congratulating Kerri, Gordon and the rest of the team at NextHome Moves on the opening of their brand new NextHome office in Clarksville, TN!
