Response to a Changing Market

The Internet has become the most powerful property marketing and advertising medium, and advances in Internet technology and the proliferation to the masses of information and imagery concerning residential properties (which before was exclusively available only to real estate brokers and agents) has created a real estate consumer armed with more knowledge, context and understanding than ever before.

Along with the growing independence it has instilled in the consumer, the utility of the brick and mortar office location is decreasing. As a natural and inevitable consequence, substantial and growing numbers of real estate professionals are exiting traditional brokerage models.

At the same time, the home buying and selling process remains unfamiliar and oftentimes emotional for consumers. As such, they still depend on real estate agents to help navigate the process, give insight into and lend a comparative perspective on properties, provide local market expertise, and negotiate and advocate on their behalf. Because of the magnitude of the buying or selling decision, the size of the asset that underlies that decision, and the emotional responses it frequently triggers, the vast majority of consumers will continue to rely upon agents and brokers for the foreseeable future, no matter how much information they have and whether real estate professionals are in a traditional office setting or not.

eXp Realty sees Opportunity in the Change

The greatest asset of any real estate brokerage is the group of agents and brokers who are a part of it. As such, eXp Realty's strategy is to add value to its agents and brokers and enable them to build their own businesses.

Employing a Cloud Office Environment, eXp Realty agents and brokers work, attend classes, strategize, collaborate, innovate, socialize, build teams, build unity and share experiences across geographic borders in a virtual manner.

As a cloud-based real estate brokerage eXp Realty has embraced and adopted a number of cloud-based technologies in order to grow an international brokerage without the burden of physical bricks and mortar and/or redundant staffing costs.

Through this business model, thousands of eXp Realty consumers leverage the company's Internet marketing and cloud technology and growing network of professional real estate professionals to find, buy or sell homes without ever stepping foot into a traditional real estate office.


The Business Model

eXp Realty has formed a strategic partnership with VirBELA, LLC, which used a $1.7 million grant from the University of California San Diego's Rady School of Management to develop and demonstrate the 3D virtual-reality campus environment utilized by eXp Realty.

VirBELA's virtual 3D immersive learning environments run on both MAC and PC and include voice and text chat systems, professional avatar customization, integrative collaborative web browsing, and a host of other communication, and basic and advanced collaboration features that fulfill the operational needs of eXp Realty's agents and brokers.

eXp Realty has exclusive rights to the VirBELA platform within the real estate industry, as well as an option to exclusive rights within several vertical industries, including mortgage origination, mortgage lending, title and escrow and title insurance.

With the creation of a fully immersive cloud office environment that eliminates the need for a brick and mortar real estate office, eXp Realty can effectively reduce real estate professionals' overhead costs, increase their profits, and enable greater service value to consumers.

The innovative platform works by enabling agents and brokers the opportunity to earn equity in exchange for production and contributions to eXp Realty's growth. This aggressive revenue sharing program pays agents a percentage of the gross commission income earned by fellow professionals they recruit into the company.

In addition, eXp Realty's Stock Compensation Plan and online lead generation program, Making it Rain, further benefit participating real estate professionals and provide eXp Realty additional cash inflows to continue to scale operations both from a talent and technology perspective.

The overarching result of these features is a shared ownership community comprised of a large and growing group of synergistic, collaborative forward-thinking entrepreneurial professionals that successfully meet the needs of today's real estate consumer.



Operational & Financial Growth

Since its launch in October 2009, eXp Realty has experienced rapid growth, with brokerage service now offered in 35 U.S. states and Alberta, Canada.

In February 2016, the company officially welcomed into its family of agent-owners its 1,000th real estate professional, up from just 467 agents at the end of 2014. Following this achievement, the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage claimed a spot among the top 50 real estate brokerages in the United States based on agent count, according to data from RISMEDIA's 2015 PowerBroker 500 Report.

Similarly, eXp Realty generated record financial results during 2015. Following the launch its online lead generation program and stock compensation plan, the company achieved a 71 percent year-over-year increase in net revenues, recording $22.87 million for the year (2015). As it continues to expand its footprint across North America, eXp Realty will look to leverage its unique agent-owned business model to continue attracting driven, entrepreneurial agents and real estate industry leaders while promoting sustainable financial growth.


"Our 2015 performance generated record results for our agent-owners and shareholders in alignment with our internal modeling of the overall cloud-based real estate brokerage model. During 2015 we started to realize certain economies of scale relative to the cloud-based model that we have been building since 2009, enabling us to advance into a more mature operating enterprise. We also satisfied all remaining debts in 2015 and are now able to start building a cash position in the company while also starting new initiatives…"

--- CEO and founder Glenn Sanford

*eXp Realty is successfully growing its geographic footprint and adding agents and brokers faster than the venture-backed firms listed above, and doing so with required minimal capital inputs.

Limited opportunity in the public company arena and no significant growth players outside eXp Realty

  • Realogy Holdings (RLGY)
    Remax Holdings (RMAX)
    Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A)
    ZipRealty - purchased in 2014 by Realogy for $166 million
    • $2.7 billion in residential real estate sales in 2013

eXp Realty's progressive approach is driven by a team of individuals highly specialized in their respective skillsets. With decades of combined experience and leadership, eXp Realty is advancing on its goal of being the first agent-owned, cloud-based, full service, global real estate brokerage company providing 24/7 access to collaborative tools and professional development for managing real estate brokers and agents.



Since early 2002, Glenn Sanford has been actively involved in the online real estate space. In early 2007, Sanford launched BuyerTours Realty, LLC which, using a combination of web and traditional bricks and mortar, grew to three offices and into two states. After the drop off of the market in late 2008, Sanford and his executive team rewrote the entire business model in recognition of the "perfect storm" of lower revenues, fixed or rising overhead costs, and a consumer with more information and access than ever before. eXp Realty, LLC was launched in October 2009 as the first truly cloud-based national real estate brokerage, which meant giving up the traditional bricks and mortar environment and moving to a fully-immersive 3D virtual office environment where agents, brokers and staff collaborate across borders while learning and transacting business from anywhere in the world. In 2013, eXp Realty became a subsidiary of eXp Realty International Corp. Since that time eXp Realty has quickly grown to 31 states throughout the United States and Alberta Canada.

From 2005 to 2007, Sanford ran a large mega-agent team and consulted to Keller Williams International as a member of the Agent Technology Council in the areas of online client acquisition, client conversion and technology. Sanford was also a significant contributor to Keller Williams Internet Lead Generation Masterminds.

Prior to real estate, Sanford was active at the executive level with a number of technology-related companies. In 1998, Sanford founded and served as president for eShippers.com, an online e-commerce and logistics company.



Jason Gesing became president of eXp Realty International Corporation in September 2013. Since that time the company has achieved annual growth at a rate which positions it as one of the fastest growing real estate brokerages in the United States.

As president of eXp Realty, Gesing is actively engaged in driving company growth while working with the rest of the eXp Realty executive team to ensure that systems, processes and infrastructure exist to support expansion. Gesing participates regularly in business model profitability discussions with owners of leading independent brokerages and others demonstrating the company's high-engagement, cloud-based model and its dramatic impact on cost, profitability and the synergies that exist when the agents and brokers of a publicly traded real estate brokerage are also its shareholders.
