Why you should consider eXp Realty

Have you ever looked into the eXp Realty opportunity? It took me more than 12 months to make the move from the first time I was introduced to it. I had been in the real estate sales industry in Edmonton for more 33 years at the time, and had been with Re/Max for over 30 years.

Well I can tell you that it was the best decision I have ever made. I only wished I had made the decision a year earlier. Please take the few minutes to watch this short video tell me what you think.

Don’t make the mistake that many realtors make and think we are just a recruiting or a multi-level marketing company.  We are agent success obsessed. We want to provide you the tools and technology for you to succeed.

Welcome to eXp Realty, the largest residential brokerage by geography in North America with tens of thousands of agents across the entire US plus Canada. We're one of the fastest growing real estate brokerage firms and are happy to share our story. eXp Realty is agent success obsessed. As a full service brokerage, we work every day to help our agents be successful as they work with clients to help make their dreams come true.


eXp Realty's revolutionary virtual office business model does away with the added cost of a traditional brick and mortar brokerage. This means no desk fees, no franchise fees, and no royalty fees. You'll keep 80 to 100% of your commissions and enjoy a low company cap.


Wow. If I was meeting an agent for the first time and wanted to tell them about eXp, it's a completely different model than anything else out there. I love it as an eXperienced agent because I have access to so much stuff online. I don't have to drive to an office anymore. There's just a lot more tools available than most traditional brokerages.


eXp Realty has been recognized for its innovative cloud platform. Just as many services such as video, retail stores and taxis have given away to companies like Netflix, Amazon, and Uber, eXp Realty has grown quickly, understanding that today's real estate agent doesn't need to be weighed down with the eXpense of brick and mortar location.


I think part of the whole eXperience of being with eXp is sort of having a willingness to try things that might improve your business, right? Not being afraid to go and look at what the next best tool is, what the next best product is, not being afraid to embrace new technologies. I mean, the fact that we operate and live and work and relate to each other in the way that we do and that we've done it that way for so long I think has been a galvanizing force for every single agent, every single staff member, every single broker in the company. And so I think the key thing really is to get into the world and get to know people.


The growth of eXp Realty has been remarkable. Founded in 2009 by real estate agent and visionary Glenn Sanford, eXp World Holdings became a publicly traded company in 2013. In 2015, with 650 agents, eXp Realty launched its agent equity program and icon agent award and just two years later have eXpanded into 47 states and two provinces with more than 6,500 agents. In 2018, eXp World Holdings proudly joined the NASDAQ stock exchange, and today, we have tens of thousands of agents, continue to expand internationally and have been recognized for the efforts of our agents and our culture.


I think one of the best things for me in terms of core values is it provides alignment for our staff as well as our agent community. Think of it as we're all kind of pulling the oars the same way. It helps us decide if we're all a fit for each other. It allows us to be diverse while still having a fit and kind of common goals and a common way to talk to each other.


eXp Realty is taking collaboration to the next level through its one-of-a-kind cloud office environment. Say goodbye to office commutes and waiting for support. In eXp World, agents, brokers and eXp Realty staff work together at any time or any place in realtime. Agents enjoy dedicated brokerage support in areas including onboarding, team services, accounting and payment processing. But even more than that, eXp World provides an opportunity for agents to connect and help each other. And through eXp University, we offer more than 40 hours of live training each week. eXp World also makes international collaboration that much easier as agents can easily reach out across the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.


Where else do you get to create an avatar, log into a cloud platform and go to a meeting with other agents from all over the world? I mean, it's pretty phenomenal, and it's super easy to use.


eXp also has a vibrant community of agents and staff engaging 24/7 on Workplace by Facebook. eXp Realty provides updates each day to make sure our agents are in the know and agents share valuable feedback with the company and each other. eXp Enterprise is our proprietary technology that gives agents autonomy and visibility into metrics and business intelligence that's crucial to their needs. Agents can easily review commission and cap status, get realtime performance reports and stay up-to-date on their company equity awards.


Using TransactionDESK, agents manage their transactions from beginning to close, totally paperless, with the ability to sign documents digitally. eXp also provides powerful lead generation and CRM tools at no additional cost. And when it comes to marketing and branding, we provide hundreds of templates and videos to help you market and brand your business in the flexible way that makes sense for your market and needs.


So with agent branding, we can have the best of both worlds. Some people don't want to be the forefront of what they're doing. They want the comfort of having a strong brand with a national brokerage, with the largest area coverage of any other brokerage in the country, and that gives them the confidence to put themselves in front of their clients.


Other folks have been in the business long enough and have individual branding that they want to be the forefront, and I love that we support both of those. We are as agent-centric as any company that I've ever seen, and so when an agent has matured enough in the business that they realize that people do business with them because of them and not the brand, they're fully supported in that here at eXp.


Production matters at eXp. We're proud to be recognized as a top-ranked residential real estate brokerage. Agents join eXp Realty because we're an agent-obsessed, full service international brokerage with an innovative business model, technology and commitment to our core values. Being agent-obsessed also means making sure our agents can prosper in today's fast-moving world. Simply put, there are no desk fees, no royalty fees and no franchise fees.


The fees we do have are tied to our core value of sustainability and making sure our agents have the ability to grow with a company with a longterm vision. Best of all, agents can become shareholders with eXp World Holdings in multiple ways. With our sustainable equity plan, agents earn awarded shares on their first transaction, shares when they cap and shares when an agent they sponsor closes their first transaction. Our ICON Agent Award program provides stock for certain production and cultural goals and agents have the opportunity to enroll in an Agent Equity Program.


So the importance of being a productive agent at eXp would be that we're rewarded beyond what we just collect in our commissions and our fees, and that's something that's different. There's not any other company that I'm aware of that does that. And so yeah, again, that's one of those things that this opportunity with eXp is different and there's never been an offer like this to realtors that I've ever been aware of in almost 30 years.


There's one more important way agents benefit for being part of eXp Realty. Through our revenue share plan, our agents receive revenue-sharing income from the sales activity of productive agents they sponsor into the company. Agents are based on the adjusted gross commission income from the sales transactions closed by personally sponsored agents and productive agents in their overall group. The adjusted gross income is calculated each month, so eXp Realty pays out 50% to its agents and the company retains 50%.


Why does eXp Realty provide both a way for agents to become shareholders and receive revenue through our one-of-a-kind revenue share plan? Whether you are just starting out in real estate or see retirement ahead, the opportunity to receive income in multiple ways is just one more thing that makes eXp Realty special.


If was meeting an agent that was learning about eXp for the first time, I would tell them, "This is as close as you're going to get to owning your own business while still having all of the support and assistance of a team and a brokerage."


eXp Realty, through our business model, technology, training, core values, and so much more, is revolutionizing the real estate industry. Call me today or apply today online at http://sergebourgoin.exprealty.careers/
