In The Mist Of Tragedy George Huntoon Goes Above and Beyond For Others

As Hurricane Harvey swept across lower Texas one eXp Realty agent goes above and beyond the call of duty to save countless lives.  George Huntoon, an agent at eXp Realty, now a local hero, delays the emotion of his own personal losses and goes to work saving other lives.

Insert from Forbes article:

George discovered his client and friend (a single mom with two kids and two dogs) feared for their lives. They called 911 but only got recordings to “stay on the line.” George was anxious about how to help. Is it safe? He (and many others with boats) couldn’t stand idle and watch Houstonians wash away on TV. Like police, firemen, and the deployed Texas National Guard, he set out to save people, knowing it’s a dangerous mission.

THE DREAM IS REAL

Revenue Share caught my interest and it’s the main reason I joined eXp Realty.  It’ brings confirmation to the fact that eXp Realty offers an exit strategy unforeseen in our industry.

Gene Frederick came to eXp just over two years ago.  He operated 6 market centers for Keller Williams.  He closed his market centers because he saw the full potential of what eXp Realty’s Revenue Share Program had to offer.  Gene introduced Rob Flick to eXp just 1 year ago.

Rob Flick has been in retirement for 15 years.  He is the #14th highest paid profit share income earner with Keller Williams.  His annual profit share earned him just over $600,000 per year.   I’ll let his post below speak for itself.  Keep in mind that this income is one for Revenue Share only and does not include any stock received.  eXp Realty offers its agents a stock award for each agent you attract to the company.

Do you think he made a good move?  Rob has been with eXp Realty for 1 year.

Give me a call  or text – we need to talk  864.414.4675 – Confidential

I know there are those who think that there are a few of the “big hitters” who make the money in these types of programs.  Below is a picture of my revenue share earnings for the months of July and August 2017.  Right, nowhere near what Gene and Rob are making, however, I’m making $6,000 per month without selling one home.

What about you – what does your passive income look like?  What is your exit strategy?

It’s Not The Right Time For Everyone!

When asked why agents just can’t see the big picture, Glenn Sanford, Founder and CEO of eXp Realty gave this great analogy for his answer.

Glenn Sanford:

Gene Frederick uses a new housing development as a paradigm. Some people buy before the roads even go in. Some need all the services in place. Some need the first models to be built. Some need most of the development to be in place and some will buy the last units built and there are some who buy once a development has matured and properties are turning over and the schools are well established etc…

Everyone has a different level of discomfort they are willing to deal with relative to brokerage models. I didn’t use Netflix much when they were still only mailing DVD’s in the mail and had a minimal streaming business. Now Blockbuster is out of business. I didn’t order much on Amazon other than the occasional hard to find a book on Amazon in the early days. Now there are very few weeks that go by that I don’t use Amazon.

We are still in the relatively early days of a Cloud-based model that doesn’t have a physical footprint for agents, so most agents still think going to an office is a good idea. Eventually, I think there will be some holdouts however most agents over time IMO will affiliate with a brokerage that doesn’t maintain a physical footprint and the consumer will totally understand as part of the connected economy.

eXp Realty Launches Agent Ownership Initiative

 

Multiple Stock Ownership Opportunities Available to Cloud Brokerage’s Agents

BELLINGHAM, WA – March 25, 2014 – eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCBB: EXPI), the Real Estate Cloud Brokerage, announced today the launch of an Agent Ownership initiative that provides a number of opportunities for agents and brokers to become significant shareholders in the Company.

“The greatest asset that any real estate brokerage possesses is the group of agents and brokers who are a part of it. In our view, those agents and brokers should be owners and beginning today at eXp Realty, they will be,” said eXp Realty President Jason Gesing, during a Special Meeting of the Company inside its Cloud Office on Friday.

The new initiative has multiple components but beginning today and retroactive to January 1, 2014 the Company will issue 100 shares of stock to each agent and broker for their first transaction in 2014. The Company will also issue 1000 shares to any agent who caps in 2014. 1000 shares will also be issued to any agent or broker who attracts another agent into the Company upon the closing of that new agent’s first transaction.

Each of these awards will be made as a part of a formal stock compensation plan to be adopted later in the year. The Company also anticipates adopting a voluntary program (technically an “ESOP”) pursuant to which agents and brokers will be allowed voluntarily to contribute a portion of commission dollars and/or revenue sharing dollars to the purchase of Company stock at a discount.

“Our status now as a public company really allows us to build a brokerage that is owned by its agents. We have put together some pretty unique opportunities for all of our agents, as well as for iconic agents in their marketplaces and for brokerage owners,” said Gesing. “We believe that this, in addition to our aggressive gross revenue sharing plan, is just one more way in which our agents can achieve financial independence.”

Recently, the Company incentivized the migration of a 19 agent brokerage firm in Atlanta, Georgia using stock as a leverage point in combination with the value propositions of the Company’s core business model. Since the team in Atlanta joined eXp Realty, the size of the Company’s agent and broker population in the region has doubled and the Company has retained 100% of the agents in the region.

“Through our culture, technology, and collaborative and supportive environment, we can offer to a group of agents what it is that they need to be competitive in the industry today,” said Gesing. “At the same time, we can offer broker owners something of significant value for what they have been able to build, while allowing them to scale their businesses in ways previously not possible. Ultimately, agent ownership speaks to the opportunity to own your career and at eXp we’re interested in attracting real estate professionals who want to take charge of their career and their future and take ownership of both.”

Training Is Important – But You Have To Want It.

One of the things that I really enjoy about being part of eXp is that the support and
training are excellent.  The session with Glenn Sanford on The Magic of
Thinking Big was nothing short of exceptional.

In case you missed it here is the link:
HERE IS THE LINK TO HEAR IT AGAIN

Sometimes I have to laugh at real estate agents. They will jump from one
agency to another searching, and yet have no idea what they are searching
for ! I have seen agents jump for different splits, promises of leads, cheaper
fees etc. What I rarely see is an agent that will jump because they want
better training or support.

Yes, I have heard agents say that they are jumping to an agency that offers
more training, but in reality they rarely participate in the training programs.
I don’t understand that.

The approach to our industry, how we are approached by future clients and
the technology we need to use are changing so quickly that struggling to figure
it out on our own is just too time consuming and frustrating that most of us
just don’t even try to keep up.  Really bad mistake !

I know we all have things to do during the day and can easily make excuses
why attending training is less important than what ever else we have to do.
However, you have to decide if what you are presently doing is more important
than your own personal development.

You are responsible for your own personal development. What eXp offers are
ongoing training programs that you can use to develop yourself in just about
any area of this business as well as personal development to improve our
lives and life styles.

Personal business coach, Pam Ostrowski, high impact training, Scott Enbinder and the unlimited
resources of Glenn Sanford and Brian Culhane – eXp offers you an opportunity to grow.
Why wouldn’t you take advantage of that?

Just my two cents – well maybe a full nickle !

Fill out the form below or  just give me a call  864. 414.4675

To your success – call me if I can help.

This month, eXp Realty is celebrating its third anniversary by welcoming its 28th state broker, Guy Allen, who will head up the eXp office in Washington, DC.

Launched in 2009, eXp Realty is a fast-growing, international real estate brokerage that is using rapid advances in technology to aggressively grow and keep costs of running a brokerage low while most other firms are struggling just to survive in what is thought of as one of the toughest markets in which to operate.

“It’s been awesome to watch eXp become a place where top real estate professionals come together daily to collaborate on solutions to real time industry challenges,” says Brian Culhane, Co-Founder and Chief Cultural Officer of eXp Realty.

A unique combination of innovative technologies, a highly competitive financial split and what is currently the most aggressive revenue share model in the industry resulted in eXp Realty being chosen as one of the most Innovative Brokerages by Inman News in 2011. Founder and CEO, Glenn Sanford was also recognized that year as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the Real Estate Industry by the same publication.

“It’s amazing how starting with the simple concept of keeping costs low and engagement high has resulted in eXp Realty being recognized year after year as one of the industry’s most innovative companies,” says CEO Glenn Sanford.
