Our company culture speaks to who we are, the type of agent we attract, and how we are perceived by our clients (the consumer of real estate services). We focus on what is really needed to assure agent success: client-centric marketing, comprehensive technologies, automated systems and an inspirational culture. Because, client success is essentially our success.
We work in concert with our agents to create an experience throughout the property buying/selling journey that is unparalleled. We make it easy for you to look good through our comprehensive proprietary platform that puts the latest technology at your fingertips, all in one place. Our multifaceted approach to training and support is designed to make all things easier for today’s busy agent. Our all inclusive business model is affordable and flexible. It is truly a smorgasbord of technology and support. You simply cannot fail.
Matterport generates 403% more inquiries than traditional media.
We have a Matterport 3D camera right in-house! That’s right. Better yet, our agents use it for free. The dollhouse views and true virtual tours keep today’s online consumer engaged longer and generate more inquiries by A LOT! And lets be honest, it makes our agents look good! We require use of the camera (unless a client specifically opts out) to increase local brand awareness and ultimately drive traffic back to our agents.
Drones are an unmatched way to showcase acreages, adjacent landscape, and uniquely manicured properties. Drone photography is available to NextHome Journey agents and encouraged whenever an amazing landscape demands to be seen. After all, it’s all about showing off the property and all it has to offer…inside and out!
24/7 Contract Assistance Hotline
Questions often arrive at the most inopportune times. Bad timing or not, sometimes you just need an answer now. So our broker is available 24/7 for assistance with tricky contract wording, client questions, property emergencies, etc.

WHAT OUR AGENTS ARE SAYING
I joined the NextHome in February…I found my work family! Kelli makes our environment feel like home. She is one of the kindest and most knowledgeable women I know. She is always available if you have questions or concerns. She wants you to succeed. I’m truly grateful for our team. I look forward to my future here.

Their cutting edge technology and design will be sure to not only catch your eyes but everyone else’s too! I cannot image working anywhere else!
- Mandee Lind, REALTOR
I joined NextHome Journey in 2017 after moving to Iowa from out of state. I’ve worked with several brokers in the past and Kelli and the rest of the office are by far the most pleasant group of people I have ever had the privilege of working with. Kelli is always available if I have questions and her judgment and knowledge of real estate is top notch!
- Aubry Larkin, REALTOR
NextHome far exceeded our expectations! We needed to find a home quickly and they helped us do just that by providing us with unlimited time, prompt communication, and fully listening to our needs and wants in a home. Our transition was very smooth and much of that is due to Kelli and her Realtor experience.
- Cori Flatt, Client
I have worked with Kelli close to a year, and I can say that it has been the best working experience that I could possibly want! Not only does she care about the level of work you do, she applies a personal touch that makes you feel like family. You will LOVE coming into work each day. You will get her best, no matter what. I would highly recommend working with Kelli. You will not be disappointed!
- Kordell Lettow, Leasing Agent
We have two fee structures to choose from: a flat, nominal monthly fee or a per transaction fee. We don’t have desk fees. We don’t have office supply fees. We simply don’t have fees.
