We celebrate your successes, and cheer each other on to nurture a collaborative and professionally rewarding environment.


Introducing The Casan Collection

We believe that luxury, like a lot else in real estate, could do with some redefining and thoughtful innovations that bring in NEXT best practices. Casan covers new ground: created for the top 10 percent of the market as defined by that market.

We recognize that luxury properties live everywhere, not exclusively in big cities or coastal retreats. The Casan Collection is an unparalleled visual identity, advertising, and marketing suite designed to attract a refined set of clientele. Our luxury certified professionals deliver a distinct and exquisite experience for all parties in the transaction.

Our Office

NextHome Strategies:
A Virtual Presence

We operate a virtual office to encourage work-life balance and independence. We know that real estate takes place outside of the traditional brick and mortar offices and more often in the living rooms and at the kitchen tables of our clients. We want agents free to pursue those meetings, keep the schedules that work for their business, and manage their personal lives. Even though we’re virtual, our broker and back office team is always available for in-person meetings with agents, and to pull the team together to support and learn from one another.

Our Broker/Owner

Meet Barbara Douglass-Scherer

Barbara brings a consultative approach to real estate and draws not only on her real estate knowledge and expertise, but her extensive past professional background in real estate development, local government, risk management and human resources. She brings this extensive background to NextHome Strategies to effectively support and partner with our agents.

Barbara became a licensed Realtor® in 2010 and quickly established herself amongst her peers and clients as a knowledgeable, dedicated professional. In early 2018, she earned her Real Estate Broker’s License. Barbara enjoys the collaborative environment of the real estate process, and sees herself as a supporting partner of our agents to help them achieve their goals. Barbara will work with agents to develop a strategy based on their individual needs – one that supports their “why” – to attain the business and career they can enjoy, and be proud of.

Throughout Barbara’s entire professional career, she has dedicated time to pursuing education and learning to ensure she is providing agents the expertise they deserve and believes in supporting agents who want to learn and expand their expertise to grow their business.


We, as an industry, must do better!
NextHome does that!

I have had the pleasure of working at some amazing brokerages – but always felt there had to be a better way. Then I found NextHome! They stand apart in the systems and technology they provide with a single-sign on, a culture and philosphy that align with mine – “humans over houses”, and keeping the agent central to the transaction.


Our Agent Fee Structure is as simple as you can get. We offer two models: a monthly flat rate fee or a gross commission income fee, with the ability to change plans every six months. In either case, there are no surprises. And never any desk, office, E&O, or any other fees. Period.


Leads are generated from a variety of sources that we provide to you, including your personal website Features Listings program, Mobile Connect, Trulia Profile and Reach 150 profile – all with no referral fees. We are about providing quality leads, not quantity or time-consuming leads.


Knowledge is power and essential to agent success. Our agents stay ahead of new technologies, consumer trends, transactional shifts and more through progressive products and training provided by NextHome and hands-on mentoring.


Our agent’s return on investment, along with superior technology, 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.


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!


Because there is no floor! 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.

Meet Luke

Luke is friend, mascot, and brand ambassador of NextHome Inc. He is responsible for being the most loyal companion you’ll ever meet and putting the Frenchie in franchise. He’s orange and bright and widely adopted by NextHomies (and people who steal lawn signs) across the country.

Luke loves real estate as much as we do and is a huge part of our culture. We celebrate his birthday every year on June 15, the day a human named Luke created him at Pentagram. He helps us connect people with their homes, helps connect us with communities across the country and with each other. He warmly reminds us every day that home is where your dog is.
