Check out our Blog:
When you have a great year in real estate, it’s affirming to get that award in front of all your associates, isn’t it? Then you post it on social media to remind your friends and clients that…”oh, yeah…they sell real estate…and they do a good job of it, too!” Affirmation and marketing all rolled into one.
Then what do you do with that award? If you are like us, it goes in a box with all the others eventually…and that box gets put in the attic eventually.
The awards agents receive with EXP Realty involve certificates that are real assets…not just paper recognition. Agents are awarded for several milestones:
*All of these stock awards have a vesting period.
EXP agents have the option to participate in the eXp Stock Purchase Plan (aka “Agent Equity Program”). Agents receive a 10% discount on EXPI stock when they allow eXp to withhold 5% of the commission generated from the agent’s transaction. The stock price and number of shares issued is determined by the closing market value of the last trading day of EXPI stock for the month. There is no vesting period for this stock and agents can opt in or opt out any time.
We think this is an excellent benefit to grow our stock portfolio. Just Google EXPI and check the stock price today…and consider that our first stock purchase in 2015, when we joined the company, was for .60 cents a share! Of course, those days of penny stocks are gone, but to get stock in your company at a 10% discount is always a good value.
We love to log in to our Enterprise dashboard and see which stock awards are vesting next. A few shares here, a few there…they really add up over the years. It is great to get rewarded for doing what we would do every day…help people buy and sell their homes.
These “certificates” are adding to our retirement bottom line, and no longer fill the box in our attic!

If I Could Create A Brokerage Today… The brokerage model hasn’t been adequately challenged since 1906. There is still a semi-adversarial relationship between the broker and the agent competing for a bigger piece of the pie. It’s a very good time to consider a paradigm shift in the broker/agent dynamic. Support for Agents The ideal… Continue Reading
We just celebrated our four year anniversary with eXp Realty Maryland. When I use the word “celebrate”, it’s for good reason. I’ve been in residential real estate sales for almost 27 years, and I can’t say I’ve ever “celebrated” an anniversary. It’s been four years worth celebrating. eXp Realty was a game changer for Karen… Continue Reading

Why Join eXp Realty?
We do things differently, and we offer much more.
At eXp Realty, our family of agents and brokers build their own businesses. They work, attend classes, strategize, collaborate, innovate, enjoy water-cooler chats, build teams, build unity and share experiences inside of our Cloud Office Environment.
Together, we’re leveraging Systems and Tools in order to grow an agent and broker-owned international, publicly-traded company.
eXp Realty agents and brokers are working together to build businesses, build and enhance brands, increase profitability, reduce overhead and risk, and achieve bold career and life goals, all while establishing a direct ownership interest in eXp Realty International Corporation as a shareholder and partner.
Here's a perspective from one of the top agents in the country:
“We live in a world of disruption. Companies like Uber and Airbnb are challenging the status quo of some of the most tried and true industries with their unique platforms. eXp’s “cloud-based” real estate brokerage model brings this disruption to the traditional concept of the Real Estate Brokerage by changing how real estate agents are compensated and supported.When you remove the cost of locally owned offices, regional management, and national corporate overhead from the brokerage model it allows that revenue to flow back to you – the agents that created the revenue in the first place.You are probably perfectly happy with your current company. That’s what we all said before we joined eXp Realty. You owe it to yourself and your family to be open-minded enough to examine this opportunity. Then you can decide what’s best for you – but at least you’ll be informed.”~ Jay
