We believe in a simple formula: Hire top-notch people. Train and support them. And provide all the latest tools and technology.
Our culture is reflective of this philosophy – our branding and marketing is designed for today’s consumer, we encourage collaboration, and celebrate the unique strengths and talents of our agents. Teamwork is promoted, as it is our belief that when we work together we can accomplish so much more!
Cutting-edge technology, support & training, and teamwork mean that NextHome Coastal agents have a better, balanced life. It is just that simple.
In 2007, business partners and friends, Marlene Waterhouse and Tina Hartman opened Short Sale Solutions, providing short sale expertise and services to hundreds of agents, buyers, and sellers.
In 2013, the partners opened their own brokerage. Holding true to their “family first” ethos, Marlene and Tina designed a brokerage that ensures not only professional success through extraordinary client service, but also allows each team member personal balance, development, and growth.
As NextHome Coastal, Tina and Marlene, along with their seasoned team of agents and support staff, are thrilled to serve the booming Orange County area!
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.
No Floor Time
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 agents a strong social media presence to ensure they are found.
AFFORDABLE & FLEXIBLE ALL-INCLUSIVE FEES
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.
Life is on the move and real estate happens everywhere. Transact, market, and execute your business anywhere, anytime. And to make it even easier, our technology, advertising, marketing and training are all integrated … and part of the package. Experience a comprehensive platform and full set of easy–to-use services all in one place.

At NextHome Coastal, fees are kept low. There are no desk fees, no E&O fees, no broker review fees, no website fees, no technology fee.
The franchise fee is flexible and is charged at a low flat per-month charge or on a per transaction basis. You can change the way the fee is paid every six months. Why change plans you ask? One common reason is seasonal. During the slower winter season, our agents can choose the percentage option. Then when the spring market arrives, agents can switch to the flat rate option. And for our brand new agents, the percentage option allows them to build their businesses without the monthly fee until they sell their first home.
It’s great to have options, isn’t it?
