Pleasanton, CA — January 15, 2020 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Real Estate Advisors, based in Southlake, Texas. The brokerage represents the 31st office location opened in Texas for the NextHome franchise.
The brokerage will serve clients across the Fort Worth area including Southlake, Dallas, Grapevine, Northlake, Roanoke, Westlake, Justin, Colleyville, Arlington, Irving, and the remainder of Tarrant and Denton counties.
The brokerage is owned by Texas-native Rudy Martinez who has 28 years of real estate experience. NextHome Real Estate Advisors agents are excited to offer their expertise in all types of residential sales. Rudy and his team are especially happy to help first-time home buyers and Texans who are looking to relocate to the perfect forever home.
Rudy began his real estate career in Corpus Christi in 1991. While there, he owned his own independent brokerage - Mitchell Lloyd Properties. After 19 years of building a great reputation around the Gulf of Mexico, Rudy moved to Southlake to be closer to his grandkids.
Building a career in his new home meant getting involved in the area with all it had to offer. Rudy became the president of the Keller Chamber of Commerce and spent his time there bringing businesses together and promoting economic development in his community. He also started teaching with the Texas Real Estate Commission, a job he still enjoys today.
Rudy continued to build his portfolio of satisfied clients by working with several nationally franchised real estate firms.
In 2018, Rudy realized he eventually wanted to own his own franchise or once again open up a small independent brokerage.
“My dream was to open an office that could create and nurture agents who are true professionals and who deeply understand our business and the fiduciary responsibility we have to our clients,” Rudy said. “If I could accomplish that, I knew we could elevate the real estate profession in our area.”
As he started researching options, Rudy reconnected with an agent he mentored years ago during his time at a nationally franchised office.
“That agent had joined NextHome and raved about how great the company was,” Rudy recalled. “I Googled NextHome, researched it, watched the videos posted on the website, and I liked what I heard. The company culture was helping to grow great agents and it resonated with me because that’s the direction I wanted to go.”
Today, NextHome Real Estate Advisors is offering top-tier agents the tools and training they need to thrive in the Dallas/Fort Worth market.
