NextHome Your Way

The real estate industry is going through a major and much needed change. The development of online tools and technology has shaken the ground underneath it and left agents and brokerages frantic for business and trying to find the right direction.
NextHome Your Way, was born out of the need in the industry to refocus and remember who is supposed to be in the center of the transaction- You, the client. Our core value is Humans Over Houses. From our signs that market your home and its features (and not a Realtor) to making sure that every one of our agents is well trained and working with the best vendors available. We meet each client, understand their specific needs and together, craft a personalized plan that is right for you. Through transparency, education and advocacy, our purpose is to support you to make informed decisions while simplifying a complicated process and reducing the stress involved in a transaction.
