Business Model and Earning Opportunities

Equity Opportunities

eXp Agent Shareholder Hub

We’ve redesigned the traditional brokerage to create a company where agents can become shareholders at eXp Realty. We offer every agent the unique opportunity to become a shareholder in their own company, and celebrate the company’s financial success. All agents can earn equity awards for various achievements such as closing their first transaction or enrolling to be paid a small percentage of their earned commissions in stock at a discounted rate.
