What is special about eXp Realty Agents?  Why should I hire a broker from eXp Realty when selling or buying my home?


EXP Realty is the fastest growing brokerage in the US and Canada, reaching 6,511 agents (2009 to 12/31/2017) faster than any brokerage before it.  The benefits to its agents and the corporate culture at eXp Realty translate to numerous benefits for the real estate consumer:


  • Brokers at eXp Realty are encouraged to follow their own path - to build a business that suits their personality.  We enjoy considerable freedom that isn't found to such a degree at most other brokerages.  This creates an entrepreneurial spirit among agents, who innovate in ways that provide new services you might not find elsewhere. 


  • The company offers the best training - 25+ hours of original training each week - put on by top real estate coaches, company executives, IT and training staff, and volunteer top agents from around the US and Canada, who have proved to be very generous with their time.  Brad Andersohn, formerly of Zillow, is a top real estate coach who organizes and conducts our training.  This emphasis keeps our agents on top of the latest trends and technology. 


  • EXP Realty attracts a preponderance of top-performing, experienced agents with in depth local market knowledge. 


  • Successful, experienced agents possess great confidence.  They will back you up going into a difficult negotiation or when a dispute arises.  Disputes crop up more often than you would think.  I once had an extended weeks long negotiation over an antique Moroccan door that would cost extra and wasn't included with the house.  But you can't sell a house without a front door, can you? 


  • EXP agents don't stand alone.  Our mentorship program and compensation model build true teams.  Our agents back each other up.  At the typical brick-and-mortar brokerage, every agent is a competitor of every other - even the boss. 


  • Our agents can get technology, contract, or other questions answered quickly - often in minutes.  Our support staff and supervising brokers are readily available via multiple channels besides the usual email and phone: our virtual Cloud Office with staff at the ready, our many private Facebook groups where any question might be posed, team mobile messaging on Voxer or WeChat, and more. 


  • Agents at eXp Realty all belong to the National Association of REALTORS (US) or Canadian Real Estate Association and adhere to a higher level of ethics (NAR Code of Ethics). 


  • The company promotes the concept of "Agent Ownership".  It's a publicly traded company under EXPI - one of few publicly traded, honest, and open brokerages.  A big majority of agents are shareholders.  So you are talking to an owner, when you speak with an eXp Realty agent.  They can get the ear of top management and top brokers, if the occasion calls for it. 


  • If you are a seller, ask agents you interview about their brokerage's "co-marketing" policy.  Do they allow friendly agents at competing brokerages to promote your property and hold extra open houses for the maximum exposure?  Most brokerages desire to control your listing and exclude outside agents.  They view your listing as their own exclusive property.  We have no such policy at eXp Realty.
