“We are excited to enter into the Nevada market with our first office,” said Kurt Carlton, co-founder and president of New Western. “Currently, there are nearly 400,000 properties that are 20 years old or older in the Las Vegas area that could be ideal to modernize or renovate. This provides a significant amount of potential inventory for real estate investors who want to fix and flip.”

Houses are listed on average for 19 days before receiving an offer or multiple offers and usually sell above the asking price,” said Andy Ramirez, general manager of Las Vegas, New Western. “Due to the low property taxes in Nevada, Las Vegas will continue to be a very desirable market for both homeowners, as well as investors looking to own rental properties.”

In 2018, he was promoted to general manager in the Northwest San Antonio office, where the company has facilitated the revitalization of more than $472 million in properties over the last four years.
