You did it; you did the education, you passed the tests, and now it’s time to choose your brokerage. As a new real estate agent, choosing a brokerage can be overwhelming – there are so many choices, and each brokerage has their own way of doing things. At eXp Realty, we do things differently compared to other brokerages, and as a result, we often hear the question, is eXp Realty good for new agents? Let’s break it down.
Training for New Real Estate Agents
As a new real estate agent, there’s a big learning curve. Not only are you starting in a new industry, but you’re also starting your own business – there’s a lot to learn! Every week in the cloud brokerage, eXp hosts a variety of different classes, over 50 hours a week, to help you grow and succeed as an agent. These courses are taught by leaders in the industry from all over the world.

Support for New Real Estate Agents
On top of having all the training programs, and access to mentors, you also have support all around you. As a virtual brokerage, we work in the cloud – eXp World. eXp Realty has hundreds of paid employees in the world waiting to help you with whatever you need – everything from tech support to accounting.
We also have Workplace by Meta (Facebook). It’s like Facebook, but for the brokerage. Here you can quickly speak to anyone that you need to talk to. You can message your brokers, you can join different groups – there’s always someone online that could help you.
You also have your eXp Sponsor – this is the person that introduced you to eXp Realty, or the reason why you signed up. Sponsors have no obligation to help you at eXp, so it’s important to choose the right one. Find out what we do for our agents.
Earn More as a New Real Estate Agent
At a traditional brokerage real estate agents get paid by selling homes – commission. At eXp Realty you have an opportunity to earn more for doing the same work. We have 3 income streams at eXp Realty:
Keep more of your commission with no desk fees, franchise fees, or royalty fees. We also have a low company cap – which can come back to you if you become an icon agent.
As an eXp Agent, you have ownership in the company. There are 5 different ways you can earn equity in the company for doing the same work you would be doing at any other brokerage.
Earn passive income from agents that you sponsor into the company. It’s important to understand that the revenue share comes from EXP. So when EXP gets their portion from a transaction, 50% of that will go back to investing in the agents.
The Revenue Share is modelled as a 7 tier system similar to other brokerages – but the key difference is that the we share revenue before expenses, where as others share profit after expenses.
This is totally optional – you have no obligation or requirement to sponsor agents into the company.
With eXp Realty’s training, support, mentorship, and earning potential, it is a great brokerage for new real estates to start and grow their real estate careers. We know it’s overwhelming as a new agent – and we’re here to help. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
