When people ask us at NextHome Realty Connection why we franchised with NextHome, a consumer-centric tech-focused company out of Pleasanton, California, you will receive a myriad of answers. One of the most common is that we love how the owners of the five-year-old company don’t just hide in the background, they are present and communicative with all agents in the company, personally providing guidance and tools needed for success or connecting us with influential people with the latest information. With the amount of benefits that an agent and customer of NextHome receives, it is no surprise to see that NextHome was announced in Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.
Landing in the #1897 spot (out of 5,000!), NextHome is a part of a list that achieved “an astounding three-year average growth of 454% and a median rate of 157%.” With a 2018 revenue of $237.7 billion, these independent companies account for 1,216,308 jobs over the last three years.
NextHome CEO commented on Inc.’s recognition, stating,”This recognition is a testament to the hard work of our team to deliver a consumer-centric brand and an innovative technology platform that resonates with agents and brokers. More than that, it speaks to the level of professionalism of our members who are truly the absolute best in the business. We couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments, helping NextHome grow at such a tremendous rate.”
To qualify for Inc.’s list, companies have to be U.S. based, privately held, founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015 (NextHome was founded in 2014), and a for profit company that is independent, meaning not any subsidaries or divisions of other companies as of December 31, 2018. The companies that made the list are ranked according to percentage revenue growth.
We are grateful to be a part of this innovative company, and look forward to what’s next!
