Earlier today, eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI), through eXp Realty, announced the latest addition to its Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage® – Darren James of Darren James Real Estate Experts in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In his 15 years operating in the real estate industry, James has earned a number of noteworthy honors, including being named the number one REALTOR® in the Gulf States region for total individual production in both 2014 and 2015. His brokerage has recorded similar success, with the Darren James Real Estate Experts team having been ranked just outside the top 50 in terms of transactions by the Wall Street Journal in 2015.
“The eXp Realty business model is more progressive and agent-centric than any I’ve seen in my 15 years in this business,” James noted in this morning’s news release. “This is a tremendous opportunity, not just for me and for my family, but for all of the agents who have been great and loyal contributors to my success.”
James will be officially introduced to the eXp Realty community during this week’s leadership meeting, which can be viewed on the company’s YouTube channel (http://dtn.fm/mg5PA) on Friday at 11:00 am ET.
eXp Realty has been in a period of rapid growth for much of 2016, and it continues to attract leading real estate professionals from across North America with its aggressive revenue sharing program and collaborative, cloud-based resources. Earlier this month, the company announced that its family of agents and brokers had grown to include more than 1,900 members across 41 markets in the United States and Canada, representing an increase of roughly 120 percent from the beginning of this year. EXPI aims to build on this growth throughout the balance of 2016, expanding beyond 2,200 agents by year end.
“Increasingly, eXp Realty is the destination for top producing teams and for brokerage owners looking to increase profitability, achieve scalable growth across markets, and deliver the opportunity of ownership to their valued agents and team members,” Jason Gesing, chief executive officer of eXp Realty, stated in this morning’s news release. “As a company, we are committed to offering a value proposition that is so strong that it would be professionally irresponsible for an agent to affiliate with any other brokerage.”
The announcement that Darren James and his real estate team have joined the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage® comes on the heels of two similar announcements over the past two weeks. On October 14, the company announced the addition of Miguel Herrera, the top international luxury agent in all of South Texas, to the eXp team. EXPI followed up on this announcement on October 17 when Sacramento’s Brent Gove team, one of the top real estate teams in California, joined the growing brokerage company. The opportunity for agents and brokers to become owners through eXp Realty’s innovative business model is proving enticing for top real estate professionals from a number of markets.
“The eXp Realty business model is the strongest in the industry,” Herrera noted in a recent news release. “This is the future of real estate and I want to be a part of it.”
