NextHome All Pro Realty Opens in Michigan

NextHome All Pro Realty Opens in Michigan Dewayne White launches his new office in Northville, MI Pleasanton, CA — June 20, 2016 — NextHome is proud to announce our latest addition to the franchise, NextHome All Pro Realty. Owned and operated by topproducing real estate broker Dewayne White, the brokerage represents the ninth NextHome location in the state of Michigan.

Dewayne will be joined on the leadership team by Joe Conway, who will serve as Team Leader for the office.

Based in Northville, the brokerage will provide residential real estate services to the areas of Northville, Plymouth, Farmington, Farmington Hills, Ann Arbor, Livonia, Canton, Southfield, and the remainder of Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties.

NextHome All Pro Realty will provide services such as first-time homebuyer representation, investment purchases, and new home builder business.

Located 30 minutes northwest of Detroit, Northville is home to just over 6,000 residents.

Dewayne comes from a unique background. In 2003, he was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Playing seven years in the NFL, Dewayne saw the benefits of investing in real estate early. He began purchasing properties for his real estate portfolio in 2004.

Getting his real estate license while still an NFL player, he assisted several teammates in purchasing properties. When he retired in 2010, he focused his attention to new construction development and real estate sales.

“I had a goal to create a real estate company where we create income to help fund other businesses,” said Dewayne. “When I started DW Development in 2013, we were able to build quality custom homes throughout the Detroit suburbs.”

In 2017, Dewayne found NextHome through a familiar connection – an existing NextHome franchisee.

“Brad Sandberg and Jeff Scott (owners of NextHome Edge) help me with my property management,” said Dewayne. “I looked into the NextHome franchise and loved what I saw. With the flexibility of the franchise fee structure and the tools offered, I knew the company would be a good fit for my brokerage.”

Dewayne met Joe back in 2013. In 2018, he asked Joe to join the brokerage as the person who would help grow the company with talented agents.

“Knowing Joe and his skill set of running a brokerage and organizing a successful company, he’s a great person to be in business with,” said Dewayne.

“I was running a team for an independent brokerage when Dewayne and I began talking about NextHome,” said Joe. “I loved his vision on how he wanted to grow his brokerage. I did research about NextHome and liked what I saw. It was a great opportunity to work together.”

Dewayne says the NextHome All Pro Realty difference for the brokerage will be to provide agents a small-town atmosphere with high levels of technology and systems.

When not selling real estate, Dewayne spends time with his family. He and his wife of 13 years, Melissa, have four children – daughters Makena (age 16), Maya (13) and Malia (7) and son Luke (9). He has plenty of activities he does with the kids, but really likes the time spent together playing video games.

Joe has a daughter, Ava (16) and enjoys cycling and gardening. The two of them also donate time “life remodeling,” where they help clean up blight around their community.

Please join us in congratulating Dewayne, Joe and the rest of the team at NextHome All Pro Realty on their brand new NextHome office!

Pleasanton, CA— May 18, 2018 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Cutting Edge Realty This is the fourth NextHome office opened in the state of Louisiana.

Based out of Lafayette, the brokerage will be owned and operated by business partners Christie House Theaux and Joy Cobert.

NextHome Cutting Edge Realty is dedicated to serving the needs of clients in Lafayette, Acadiana, Broussard, Youngsville, Carencro, Maurice, Abbeville, Breaux Bridge and the remainder of the Lafayette parish area.

Both Christie and Joy have been licensed since 2011. Building their businesses independently from each other, they decided to partner up in 2018 to start NextHome Cutting Edge Realty.

Christie has been the leader of the House Team and has consistently sold 60+ homes annually. As one of the top real estate teams in the Lafayette area, her dedication to client service has earned her the reputation of a respected leader in the community.

Joy has an impressive resume as well. While selling more than 25 homes yearly, her skills as an instructor have led her to various positions of leadership. As the Productivity Coach at her local Keller Williams, she helped coach more than 40 REALTORS® on all things real estate including prospecting for new business, providing world-class client service, and best practices to retain clientele.

While both women each had successful businesses, they wanted more for themselves and for the local real estate industry.

“I wanted to bring something different to the area,” recalls Christie. “I wanted to showcase how real estate should be done and raise the bar in real estate. After sharing that with Joy, she felt exactly the same.”

As they looked at options for a real estate franchise, they felt one company in particular aligned with the goal of changing the real estate game – NextHome.

“After talking with (NextHome’s VP of Sales) Charis Moreno, we both felt the choice was easy,” added Joy. “NextHome was the natural choice of company to partner with.”

The business partners will lead NextHome Cutting Edge Realty with the intention of providing a high level of marketing not normally seen in their area. By offering a career-oriented environment for local REALTORS®, the brokerage will provide top level coaching and guidance, while holding high professional standards for all listings and buyer representation.

Christie and Joy also volunteer time and efforts for their Lafayette community.

Christie volunteers at Lafayette High School, where she sits on the Board for the school’s Booster Club and football team. Lafayette High School is the largest high school in the state of Louisiana.

Joy leads a children’s ministry group for Our Saints Church in Opelousas, LA. She volunteers her time as both a speaker and personal growth coach for children.

Christie and her husband, Rocky, have three boys – Brett (22), Christian (17) and Ryker (11 months).  Their family are avid water recreationists and love boating and offshore fishing.

Joy and her husband, Roger, have three children – sons Christian (age 16) and Colin (12) and daughter Carleigh (9). The family loves to travel and recently returned from a Florida Disney World vacation.
