Urban Realty Group Joins eXp Realty in Alberta, Canada

Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage Welcomes 26 Professionals Into Its Growing Network

BELLINGHAM, WA and CALGARY, AB -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/14 -- eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB: EXPI), the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage, announced today that Willie Ip, one of the Founding Partners of Urban Realty Group out of Alberta, Canada has joined the company, along with 26 agents from the Urban Brokerage and the Calgary metropolitan region. The company has appointed Ip its Managing Broker in the Province of Alberta.

"The opportunity to launch and grow the eXp Realty brand in Alberta represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and my partners," said Ip, who has also served as Urban's broker of record from that firm's earliest stages. "Our agents are some of the most talented and entrepreneurial professionals in the industry in this region, and the decision to join eXp provides each of them with the opportunity to grow and scale their own businesses, leveraging eXp Realty's systems and technologies, and also allows them to become part of a culture that places a premium on collaboration, sharing across borders, and developing an ownership stake -- not just in their careers but also in eXp Realty the company. With this decision, we're really empowering each of our agents to step into the shoes of a broker owner without having to sacrifice their own commitment to excellent client service in their sales."

As a cloud-based, full-service real estate brokerage company, eXp Realty provides 24/7 access to collaborative tools, training and socialization for real estate brokers and agents through its 3-D, fully-immersive, cloud office environment, while reducing their overhead, increasing their profits, and providing greater service value to consumers.

As a publicly-traded company, eXp also uniquely offers agents and brokers the opportunity to earn equity awards for production and contributions to company growth. The company also features an aggressive revenue sharing program that pays to agents a percentage of gross commission income earned by fellow professionals who they attract into the Company.

"We want to welcome each of the agents and brokers joining us in Calgary into our growing family of real estate professionals," said eXp President Jason Gesing. "Since 2009, eXp Realty has been committed to providing agents, teams of agents, and brokerage-owners with the systems, support, culture and infrastructure needed to thrive in unpredictable economic conditions and to build scalable teams of agents in any of the markets the company serves without additional capital requirements."
