When I joined eXp Realty in 2013, I’ll be honest – I had my doubts about a virtual office. But after my second or third time in eXp World, I was hooked! It was so convenient to pop into the office for a quick meeting with my team or visit the Accounting office to ask a question. I didn’t have to drive across town in rush hour traffic and wait for 20 minutes for a staff member to finish a phone call before they could assist me. I was also able to connect and collaborate with agents all around the country on a daily basis. It’s simply genius!
Fast forward to today and our eXp World is more incredible with 50+ hours of classes each week, private meeting rooms for your team and easy access to all of the key departments from tech support to agent services, accounting, and even your broker. Many of the departments are open for 10-12 hours a day, so after a long day showing homes, you can still pop into the office and get the support you need.

The freedom to build a thriving real estate business from anywhere and on your own time with live end-to-end and cutting-edge customized tools might sound too good to be true. But eXp Realty’s cloud-based eXp World, powerful digital toolkit, Fast Start Series helps even the greenest of agents feel like a real estate mogul, thanks to some of the industry’s most innovative technologies.
The company provides its agents 24/7 access to collaborative tools, training, and a social environment through its 3D, fully immersive cloud-based environment. eXp agents get access to top-tier lead generation software, paperless transaction technology, content marketing tools, and a collaborative private professional community.
This carefully designed cloud-based environment has been specifically created to increase productivity and an agent’s bottom line while also fostering a culture of inclusion, support, collaboration, and mutual success. The company invests so heavily in technology in order to ensure that its agents can spend the bulk of their time doing activities that enhance their business rather than wasting valuable energy and resources on logistical efforts.
Through eXp Realty’s one-of-a-kind virtual campus called eXp World, real estate agents can say goodbye to tedious commutes or waiting until a colleague becomes available to collaborate. With thousands of agents in the United States and Canada, there are always hundreds of agents, brokers or eXp staff online to answer questions or brainstorm ideas.
Every eXp agent creates their own avatar, and when they log on to eXp World via their computer, they can visit a variety of support services, training events or meetings. If an agent needs help with eXp technology, they can walk over to the Tech Support building, take a virtual ticket and then be transported to someone who can help them. In eXp World there is no commute time and someone is always there for live, real-time support.
Through eXp World, an agent also gains access to the company’s educational training that features more than 40 hours of live instruction every week.
“Our virtual reality campus gives agents tremendous access to comprehensive training, networking, brokerage operations, and technical support when, where, and how they need it.”John Tobison, eXp World Holdings’ Chief Information Officer
It’s a resource that’s currently unmatched in the industry. “The experience of working in eXp World is better in important ways when compared to other forms of remote work or online collaboration,” according to Tobison. “Even though you are walking around as an avatar, the sense of community and place makes remote work feel much less isolating.”
It’s surprisingly fun, too. Agents and employees have multiple options when it comes to personalizing their avatar — everything from skin color to seasonal clothing can be customized. They can change their outfits daily if they choose, just like a traditional office worker would.
Even more exciting are the environments participants can choose to interact in. Of course, there are traditional office spaces and a campus with looming skyscrapers and billboards with company announcements. But, when agents want to get away from it all — even virtually — they can take a relaxing walk on the beach, kick the ball around a soccer field or even jump in a powerboat and skim the waves at high speeds.
