  1. That’s right. The Netflix of real estate is growing like crazy. Once an agent really looks into the model with unbiased eyes, one will realize, that there is nothing better out there. Period.
    In fact, less than two years ago, I was making fun of the model and slammed it with it MLM company, that should not be in real estate.
    Well, today I love rev share paying my mortgage, the humongous amount of collaboration the platform offers being cloud based, the fact that I finally own my brokerage rather than renting from my broker, the great amount of tech tools, which are constantly being added and advanced and the overall state of mind my peers at this awesome company are in. Everyone is giving and sharing and working together from a place of abundance, rather than the holdback the info approach from industry greats, because they fear competition.
    If you don’t believe me, look up an earlier article in this magazine about eXp and you will see how my comments have change once I was open to the idea of a revolutionary model. Cheers and happy selling
