Our Culture

A Group of Specialists. THAT is what we are building here at NextHome. We want the type of agent who is a leader in our industry. An agent that has the desire to utilize cutting- edge technology to better service their clients and grow their business. An agent that is ethical, caring, compassionate, and professional.

Together our agents will collaborate, learn from each other, empower each other, and give back to the community we call home, while having a lot of fun. Our group will come to be known as the premier real estate firm in all of Columbia. We invite you to discover if NextHome Specialists could be your #NextHome.

Our Broker

Thomas has been in the real estate industry since 2004. Most recently he was the Broker In Charge of his own independent firm, and closed 36 transactions in its first year. Having worked for several of the biggest brokerages in Columbia, he has seen what the other firms are offering their agents.

“As a rather successful agent, I feel like I have a great understanding of what an agent needs to grow their business, be profitable, and be relevant in today’s real estate market. NextHome offers it all. If you are ready to make your final switch, give me a call.”

-Thomas Shumpert, Broker, NextHome Specialists

Our Office

Tiny cubicles and stuffy offices are a thing of the past. Our goal is to offer the latest technology that will allow you to work away from the office and maximize your time growing your business the absolute best way: by increasing face time with your clients.

Our agents can access client information, create new listings, craft buyer offers, and much more at any time, from any place. When you DO need a conference room, or want to come in and collaborate with your fellow agents, join us at our BEAUTIFUL office space, located in the HEART OF THE VISTA.

Our Benefits

Savings

Our better commission splits, with commission caps, along with superior computer systems, lower royalty and service fees, vendor selections, and other services are all designed to substantially drive down the costs for agents to pursue their careers.

No Desk Fees

Because we are hybrid brokerage, you don’t have to contribute to maintain an expensive office, whether it is used or not. If you find yourself needing a place to work or meet clients, you are always welcome to stop by our office located at 1010 Gervais Street in The Heart of  The Vista.

No Sign Up Fees

You do not have to pay us to join our firm.

No Floor Time

Aside from referrals, in many cases, buyers and sellers find their prospective agents online. That is where you should be to greet them. Our programs assure your strong presence online.

Integrated Technology

Achieved through custom in-house development and partnerships with creative product developers from around the country. Our technology, advertising, marketing, training and integrated E systems are all part of the package. Experience a comprehensive platform and full set of services all in one place. Leverage technology and maximize efficiency through easy-to-use systems.

Support

On-demand, web based and live training on our programs and services. Communicate directly with a live NextHome corporate support staff person that is focused on responding promptly and accurately to your questions. Or, ask your broker!

Training

Knowledge is power and essential to your success. Stay ahead of new technologies, consumer trends, transactional shifts and more through progressive products and training provided by NextHome.

Leads

The majority of leads are generated straight from your Marketing and Featured Listings program, so these leads are free and exclusively yours. We are about providing quality leads, not quantity or time- consuming leads.

Free Business Cards

When you join us, we provide you with your first order of company business cards.

Inside NextHome

An inside look at the NextHome difference. We share how our model is all-inclusive, and show you the products, services, tools, technology and more that will give you the edge to grow local marketshare.

Our Fees

We ARE a company that seeks to grow each agents personal business with an unprecedented set of tools, that are free to every NextHome agent. Because NextHome was designed to be ultra sleek and ultra efficient, we are able to offer the best commission splits, and lowest commission caps in the industry.

We are NOT offering a tiny monthly fee in hopes of having hundreds of agents, who may/or may not grow their business. We are NOT a brokerage that has huge commission splits, but leaves an agent wondering what they are paying for.
