Every agent at eXp Realty has a split of 80/20 until the cap is met.

Is there a commission cap?

Agent Benefits

How is eXp Realty different from other brokerages?

Traditional real estate brokerages generally follow the same setup: Agents and staff work out of a brick-and-mortar office, commission structures are established and then agents are pretty much on their own. But eXp Realty takes a hugely different approach.

Are there really no brick and mortar offices?

We have the corporate headquarters in Bellingham, Washington, and a few brick and mortar offices in states that require a physical office. Other than that, eXp agents and brokers work from their home offices, remote office space or Regus Coworking Center. As a company, this saves a tremendous amount of money and eXp is able to share the savings with their agents through lower costs and the revenue sharing program. commission cap each year. Reduced caps are available for teams at eXp.

What if I need a physical office or meeting room on occasion?

eXp has it covered. Every agent receives a free membership to the Regus Business Lounges (a co-working center) so you can go in and work in between appointments or reserve a conference room for you and your clients. There are over 3,000 Regus co-working offices in the US, so there should be at least one that’s convenient for you!

How do a pick my sponsor at eXp?

Your sponsor is the person that introduced you to eXp Realty. If you spoke with multiple people before deciding to join eXp, you should name the sponsor that was the “procuring cause” or in other words, helped you say YES! to the brokerage. Also, you want to have a sponsor that is going to help you navigate the brokerage tools and technology and can guide you in the growth of your business — even if they are in another state!

If I’m returning to eXp, can a pick another sponsor?

If you leave the company for at least six months, you can select a different sponsor upon your return to eXp Realty.

If I need help with something, who do I call?

Here at eXp Realty, we have a unique way of making sure that agents have an abundance of resources when you need assistance. Your broker, sponsor and/or mentor can answer many of your questions, but you can also pop into the virtual office and visit the accounting department, technology team, and more. The virtual office is open about 10 to 12 hours a day so it’s super convenient for agents. You can also visit eXp Workplace and chat with your brokers, transaction team, accounting, stock services, and more.
