Pleasanton, CA— January 10, 2017 — NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the NextHome franchise – NextHome Premier Properties. This represents the 33rd NextHome brokerage in the state of California.
Based out of Folsom, the brokerage will be owned and operated by Corey Rasmussen and will serve the needs of clients in Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Rancho Cordova, Rocklin and the remainder of El Dorado, Sacramento and Placer Counties. To assist with the company’s leadership, Rasmussen will be joined by REALTOR®, Certified Home Staging Professional and Office Manager, Elizabeth Alejo. The brokerage will provide residential, commercial, investment, multi-family, and land property services.
Folsom is home to over 70,000 residents and the largest private employer in the Sacramento area, Intel. Folsom Dam and Folsom Lake provide power, water and recreation to thousands in the Sacramento Valley. Additionally, Folsom State Prison is well known for being the location where music legend, Johnny Cash, performed and recorded one of his most famous albums, “At Folsom Prison” in 1968.
Rasmussen had worked for several years as a correctional officer and wanted to have an another stream of income. He started his real estate career in 2001 when a real estate friend suggested he get his license to make additional money as a part-time opportunity.
“I saw real estate as a way to help people, make a little extra money, and avoid working overtime at the prison,” said Rasmussen with a smile.
In his first year, Rasmussen sold four homes and found himself enjoying working with people to achieve their dreams of owning a home. In his second year, he sold seven homes. At that point, Rasmussen knew he could turn this “part-time” opportunity into a full-time career.
In 2005, Rasmussen opened his own brokerage, Real Estate Premier Concepts, and quickly saw a tremendous amount of success.
Selling 60 transactions annually, Rasmussen and his real estate team have been award-winning sales producers for nearly a decade.
In mid-2016, Rasmussen felt the need to find a real estate franchise that aligned with his recent location change and office remodel.
“We relocated our office to a busy shopping center next door to a popular grocery store with tremendous foot traffic,” said Rasmussen. “With all the improvements we made in the space, we thought it was the perfect time to rebrand our company as well.”
“I love the fresh branding NextHome brings to the table,” adds Rasmussen. “It’s a beautiful design concept that will resonate with the Folsom community and the buyers and sellers of today.”
With the new NextHome affiliation, Rasmussen sees his agents utilizing the tools offered to promote their listings unlike any other brokerage in the area.
“We want our agents to use NextHome’s tools to make our sellers proud that their properties are showcased, rather than just having a home put on the market without proper marketing efforts,” said. Rasmussen. “Sellers deserve great service and marketing and we are ready to provide that for them.”
When not selling real estate, Rasmussen and Alejo, who have been together as a couple for 13 years, enjoy traveling, working out together, and spending quality time with family and friends.
Congratulations to Corey, Elizabeth and their team at NextHome Premier Properties on the opening of their NextHome brokerage!
