Charis Moreno, vice president of sales for NextHome, focuses on growing the brand across the United States, and eventually internationally. In 2020, under Moreno's leadership, NextHome opened its 500th office and added more new franchises during the COVID-19 pandemic than it did during the same period in 2019.
Moreno worked full-time while her two daughters attended school at home via Zoom. She drew upon strength, focus and determination that she did not know she had. Moreno also credited her husband, colleagues and the company's leaders with NextHome's success.
Moreno quotes Admiral William McRaven, U.S. Navy, Retired: "Life is a struggle, and the potential for failure is ever present, but those who live in fear of failure, or hardship or embarrassment, will never achieve their potential. Without pushing your limits, without occasionally sliding down the rope head-first, without daring greatly, you will never know what is truly possible in your life."
