PRESS RELEASE | eXp Realty Named 2021 Inman Innovator Brokerage of the Year
Recognition for eXp Realty’s unique approach to real estate brokering continues to be recognized as eXp was just named the 2021 Inman Innovator of the Year for a Brokerage during the annual Inman Connect conference being held in Las Vegas.
BELLINGHAM, Wash., Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — eXp World Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPI), the holding company for eXp Realty®, Virbela and SUCCESS® Enterprises, today announced that eXp Realty was named the 2021 Inman Innovator Brokerage of the Year during the annual Inman Connect conference being held in Las Vegas.
Since 1998, the Inman Innovator Awards have honored companies, individuals and new technology that increases productivity, efficiency and transparency for consumers and real estate professionals alike.
“Technology matched with an agent-centric focus is what sets eXp Realty apart,” said Glenn Sanford, Founder, Chairman and CEO of eXp World Holdings. “We are pleased to be recognized for the value we bring to the real estate industry by offering innovative real estate solutions for consumers as well as creative pathways to reward our hard-working agents.”
eXp’s revolutionary technology of conducting real estate in the cloud has been transforming real estate since the company launched in 2009, and it has continued to advance its virtual brokerage design. In July 2021, Seth Siegler, Vice President, Technology Innovation & Real Estate established the eXp Innovation Hub, a collaborative environment to create services and capabilities that make a difference in the day-to-day life of eXp real estate agents.
To keep real estate agents at the center of technology initiatives, the eXp Innovation Hub gathers agent and customer insights through virtual and in-person meetings, such as the eXp Agent Advisory Council, which was created to ensure that the “voice of the agent” is represented. Then, the eXp Innovation Hub ideates and validates concepts, rapidly prototypes, runs beta tests, assesses commercial viability and makes decisions about when and how to launch projects.
eXp continues to develop innovative solutions to make agents’ time more scalable, businesses more predictable and transactions less stressful for everyone in the homebuying journey. As announced earlier this year, eXp launched a new joint venture (“JV”) with Kind Lending to establish SUCCESS® Lending, a new residential lending platform. eXp’s iBuyer platform, “ExpressOffers,” differentiates from other iBuyer programs by making agents a key part of the process. Each of these businesses are enhancing real estate experiences for both consumers and agents.
