After years of working in real estate, closing hundreds of deals and winning multiple national sales awards, Andrew and Brittany Geotes realized there was a need for a different kind of real estate brokerage on the Gulf Coast. A brokerage that offered agents the training, tools and proven methods to provide their clients top tier service. One that understood the importance of being extremely selective when choosing agents to represent their brand.
In January of 2019 Andrew and Brittany opened NextHome Simplicity in the city of Long Beach, MS for one reason – to make the real estate buying and selling experience better and simpler. Their completely remodeled 2,300 square foot office boasts some of the coolest, cutting edge amenities in modern office space including a dedicated video room, sound proof “phone booth”, open concept and paperless filing system.
NextHome Inc. is the fastest growing real estate franchiser in America and has been jokingly called “ a technology company with a real estate license”. The company’s impressive “tech toolbox” as well as it’s culture which subscribes to a “people over numbers” philosophy is exactly why Andrew and Brittany chose NextHome to partner with in opening their brokerage. With the real estate industry becoming more and more tech oriented, Andrew and Brittany knew partnering with a national franchise would offer huge branding and technological benefits to agents and their clients.
NextHome spared no expense when selecting companies to partner with in the development of their technology platform or in hiring a company to help develop their branding. The unique, modern signage NextHome offers was developed by Pentagram the same company who developed the branding for Apple, Tiffany’s and Gucci to name a few. You can’t miss Luke, our mascot, the adorable orange French bulldog. Luke is NextHome’s “apple”, everyone loves him and the modern appeal the NextHome branding offers.
When working with a NextHome Simplicity agent, buyers and sellers can feel confident that they are working with a true real estate professional. NextHome Simplicity only hires full time agents to work within the brokerage. If an agent does not have previous experience, they will be placed within a mentor system with a top producing real estate professional to ensure that all clients are working with a full time experienced Realtor.
Andrew and Brittany look forward to the positive impact that a fresh, modern real estate company will have, not only on the community of Long Beach, but on the greater Gulf Coast as well. The mission to drive a positive change in the local industry is at the forefront of Simplicity’s goals.
