Perhaps you know Arie Luyendyk Jr. from his days as an IndyCar driver, following in his dad’s famous footsteps. Or maybe you caught him on the Bachelor TV series in which he made headlines for his last-minute change of heart. But now it’s time to know him as an eXp Realty agent who is aligning his star power with another celebrity eXp agent, Tarek El Moussa.
“I joined eXp in September 2021 after a call from Tarek El Moussa,” said Arie. “I had heard about eXp in the past but when I realized how powerful the model was it made me rethink what my current broker (RE/MAX) was offering. I was VERY loyal to my former brokerage but when you really look at what eXp can provide — especially with the revenue-sharing aspect — I had to leave and jump on the opportunity to grow with eXp.”
Arie was inspired to get into the real estate business after watching his father successfully invest. Arie got his license in 2004, while still racing cars, but during the housing market crash of 2007-2008, he went into television for a bit until seriously returning to real estate in 2015.
