2024 Woman of Influence: Charis Moreno

Charis Moreno

Charis Moreno has tremendous experience in the real estate industry, starting out on the portal side with Realtor.com and Trulia before moving into the real estate franchising side with NextHome in 2014. She is deeply knowledgeable on all real estate brands and their business models, and strongly advocates for broker owners to run their own race. To avoid comparing themselves or getting distracted by the next shiny thing, and rather focus on core competencies in order to attract great talent. She has been recognized as a RISMedia Newsmaker again and again, and often speaks at industry events.

Moreno is often the first point of contact for real estate professionals looking into NextHome as a franchising option. As such, she is the gatekeeper to NextHome’s culture. Rather than prospecting or cold calling to find potential franchisees, she focuses on building meaningful connections and attracting those who resonate with the company’s core values and vision. This mutual alignment ensures long-term success and a franchise network focused on collaboration and support. 

As VP of Sales, Moreno is responsible for NextHome’s growth across the country. Her drive and determination have resulted in NextHome being the No. 1 franchise in new offices added as recognized in NAR’s biannual residential franchise report. Comparing 2023 to 2021 data, NextHome added 145 new offices, whereas Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices came in second with 67 new offices and Engel & Volkers came in third with 44 new offices.

Outside of her role at NextHome, Charis is a mother of two and a proud supporter of ForeverFound.org.
