Pleasanton, CA— April 18, 2017 —NextHome is proud to announce our newest addition to the franchise, NextHome Capital City Realty. The new brokerage is the first NextHome franchise location to service the Washington, D.C. area.
NextHome Capital City Realty is located in Arlington, Virginia. It will support the communities of the entire District of Columbia metropolitan area – including northern Virginia counties (Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon), and southern Maryland counties (Prince George, Montgomery).
NextHome Capital City Realty will be owned and operated by 14-year real estate veteran, Claudia Bennett. The brokerage will provide sales services for residential, luxury, investment properties, and first-time home buyer opportunities.
Claudia got her start as a local realtor in the DC metropolitan area in 2003, working with buyers and sellers and earning Top Producer status from the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors. She then moved to a corporate position in the investment property division of a leading developer that manages over 2,000 apartments in the DMV area. Her responsibilities included marketing and helping her company acquire multi-family buildings and converting them into market rate rentals.
Most recently, as director of dispositions at a hedge fund, Claudia helped build and manage her department and disposed of over $250 million in underperforming assets. These properties needed to be sold and she collaborated with REALTORS® from across the country to help her sell them off. “During my time as Director in the dispositions division, I gained valuable experience about operations and big picture marketing of homes,” said Bennett. “These skills will serve as the foundation for NextHome Capital City Realty’s philosophy of world-class client care and providing our agents exactly what they will need to be successful.”
Bennett began preparing to open her own brokerage in October 2016. She loved what the NextHome franchise had to offer and knew partnering with the company made the most sense. “With the support of the franchise, NextHome Capital City Realty will be at the forefront of innovation and provide our clients a different level of marketing and service yet to be seen in our community,” said Bennett.
Bennett’s commitment to providing help to other agents expands beyond the borders of a brokerage. She serves as the co-chair of the Fairfax County Board for the Santa Maria Church, where her focus is to create local affordable housing for seniors and help the elderly in her community.
She lives in DC with her husband, Taylor, and her Chihuahua named Savanah. When not selling real estate, Bennett spends time biking and running with Taylor in Rock Creek Park near their home. The couple are self-described “foodies” and love trying new restaurants in the city.
Please join us in welcoming Claudia and the rest of her team at NextHome Capital City Realty for the grand opening of their new NextHome office!
