Revenue Share.

How Revenue Share Works

Some brokerages offer profit sharing to agents who sponsor agents into the brokerage. eXp offers revenue sharing which is based on commissions earned from selling real estate, not limited by the profitability of any particular market center. This makes a HUGE difference in the size of your revenue share check.


eXp pays you 3.5% of the commission earned by any agent
you personally sponsor into the company from the
company’s portion (up to $2,800 per year).


Agents also earn residual income from producing agents
sponsored into their overall group. For example, if you personally
sponsor 5 producing agents into the company, and they sponsor
their own producing agents, you can earn up to $3,200 annually
for each of those other agents, which represents up to 4% of the
gross commission, with no limits up to 7 levels deep.

eXp Stock.

eXp Realty is a publicly traded company (Symbol EXPI). and is listed with the NASDAQ. Stocks go up. Stocks go down. No guarantees or promises of performance are made here. But how much stock you getting with your current brokerage??

Agents can earn or purchase shares in several ways:

AT NO COST (“Awarded Shares”):
$200 in stock awarded for the first transaction of your anniversary year
$400 in stock to any agent or broker who caps (pays a full $16,000 over the year to eXp)
$400 in stock for each agent you sponsor into the company upon that agent’s FIRST closing.

There is a 3 year vesting period before awarded (vs. purchased) shares “vest” or belong to the agent. This encourages stability by giving agents an incentive to stay with eXp in order to benefit from the Equity Awards program.

AT REDUCED COST (“Purchased Shares”):
Agents may elect to have 5% of each commission (after splits and fees) invested in shares of the company at a 10% discount to Fair Market Value. In doing so, you are effectively “dollar cost averaging” by buying when the stock is at different prices. This helps you avoid buying a lot of shares at an all-time high for example.

Top agents who meet certain production goals, are influencers in the real estate community, and attend the two major eXp events of the year can earn the icon designation whereby their entire $16,000 cap is given back to them in the form of shares of the company. In this case, 25% of the shares vest immediately, and the other 75% vest in the usual 3 year time period.

Mentorship Program.

Experienced agents may choose to become certified as mentors, giving a helping hand to new agents in the company. New agents are required to use the mentor program for their first few transactions and give 10% of their commission on those deals to their mentor. This provides an excellent opportunity for agents to leverage their experience to help others while also receiving compensation.

How to Choose a Sponsor at eXp?

One of my favorite things about working at eXp is the revenue sharing. You get a little piece of what eXp gets paid. This creates an environment where all of the agents work their hardest to prove that they’re adding value to the company, and it encourages a culture of giving back.

I love this.
