eXp Realty Named Among Agent-Owned Brokerage Grows in Atlanta Region by more than 300% in 18 Months
ATLANTA, GA. – March 24, 2015 – eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB: EXPI), the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage, today announced that subsidiary eXp Realty, LLC has been named among the top 150 places to work in Atlanta by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“This is a tremendous honor for me and for each of the agents and brokers who are on our team,” said eXp Realty Georgia Managing Broker, Ian Marshall. “Our initial group of 19 agents joined eXp Realty in October of 2013 and today, less than 18 months later, we’ve extended our family and are approaching 100 agents,” said Marshall. “To be able to provide an opportunity for so many to increase and build their businesses and improve their lives is incredibly rewarding and exciting.”
The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on the feedback of employees or, in the case of eXp Realty, independent contractors. The survey was conducted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and its partner, Workplace Dynamics. More than 1400 companies were nominated or asked to participate and more than 112,000 metro Atlanta employees from 244 area companies participated in the survey.
“Any truly great place to work is, more than anything else, a reflection of great people,” said eXp Realty President, Jason Gesing while attending an event for honorees at the Cobb Center. “From Ian’s leadership to the enthusiasm exhibited by the agents who joined us in Atlanta most recently, this is a very talented, collaborative, and supportive group of entrepreneurial professionals. Our growth in Georgia also illustrates the opportunity for former brokerage owners like Ian to plug into our systems and culture, reduce fixed expenses, achieve greater profitability, and scale in a way that is typically out of reach for brokerage owners,” Gesing said. “It also demonstrates the opportunity for eXp Realty agents to effectively stand in the shoes of brokerage owners by building teams within and across markets, participating in revenue sharing, and establishing an increasing ownership stake in our publicly-traded company – all without the costs or liabilities typically associated with brokerage ownership.”
