Being a independent team for over 20 years, I’ve had offers to join major real estate franchises and none of them gave me the freedom to keep my own brand and control my own growth. My business coach of 20+ years came to me and says, “Char, you need to get on board this company.” My business coach is a very wise man, and I listened to the short webinar. Concluding it, I thought, “Why isn’t every agent an eXp agent?” The model is better than every business model out there!
What makes it so great?…
Agents are Owners
At eXp Realty, our family of agents and brokers build their own businesses while establishing a direct ownership interest in our parent company, eXp World Holdings, as a shareholder and partner.
All agents can earn equity awards for various achievements such as closing their first transaction as well as the opportunity to earn back their yearly commission cap in stock.
Revenue sharing vs Profit Sharing
Many big franchise companies have a profit sharing model which grants a share of the profit a brokerage office makes. If that office doesn’t make a profit against their expenses there’s nothing to share.
With Revenue sharing, you get your cut off the top with no expenses factored in on any agents you sponsor into the company. There’s no need to wait to see if your office made profit to find out if you get a profit and most of all, there’s no limit to what you can earn!
Revolutionary Lead Generation Platforms
As part of being an exp agent, you’ll receive access to a powerful CRM and lead generation website called Kunversion. This would normally cost $500 a month, but is given to you as part of your agent technology package.
Cloud-based office and full electronic transactions
Say goodbye to office commutes: Our one-of-a-kind cloud office environment allows agents and brokers to work together at any time or any place. Defy distance. Interact and learn from industry experts and other top professionals. eXp agents build teams, share best practices and enjoy a powerful referral network.
Company Stock Acquisition
Just for joining exp, you’ll get stock in eXp World Holdings. At other milestones, such as first sale, you’ll be given more! Also, you can purchase stock at discounted rates.
Live Weekly Education and Sales Training
Never stop learning with more than 15 hours of live training each week on eXp tools and business best practices. Agent support is only a click away with eXp’s agent services, technology and finance expertise available wherever an agent or team is located.
We’ve had friends that have even asked us whether they should use a real estate agent when buying or selling an Olathe or Kansas City area home. (YES, but seriously -we get asked that a lot!)
Hiring a real estate professional to guide you through the process of buying a home or selling your house can be one of the best decisions you make!
We are there for you to help with paperwork, explaining the process, negotiations, and helping you with pricing (both when making an offer or setting the right price for your home).
One of the top reasons to hire a real estate professional, like the Char MacCallum Real Estate Group agents are our understanding of the Olathe and Kansas City markets and how the conditions in your neighborhood will impact your experience.

You Need a Professional on Your Team When Buying a Home
Many of our own friends in the Olathe and Kansas City areas often ask us whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home or if they should first try to do it on their own. In today’s market: you need an experienced professional! It’s the advice we give family and friends… as well as the truth!
You Need an Expert Guide if You Are Traveling a Dangerous Path
The field of real estate is loaded with land mines; you need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a home that is priced appropriately and is ready for you to move into can be tricky. An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift through the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your “dream home.”
A great agent will also have relationships with mortgage professionals and other experts that you will need in securing your dream home.
You Need a Skilled Negotiator
In today’s market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars. Each step of the way – from the original offer to the possible renegotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal – you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.
Realize that when an agent is negotiating their commission with you, they are negotiating their own salary; the salary that keeps a roof over their family’s head; the salary that puts food on their family’s table. If they are quick to take less when negotiating for themselves and their families, what makes you think they will not act the same way when negotiating for you and your family?
If they were Clark Kent when negotiating with you, they will not turn into Superman when negotiating with the buyer or seller in your deal.
Famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money…not cost you money. Let the Char MacCallum Real Estate Group help you find your dream home at the best possible price!
Are you thinking of buying a home in Olathe or Kansas City? Are you dreading having to walk through strangers’ houses? Are you concerned about getting the paperwork correct? Hiring a professional real estate agent can take away most of the challenges of buying. A great agent is always worth more than the commission they charge, just like a great doctor or great accountant.
You want to deal with one of the best agents in your marketplace. To do this, you must be able to distinguish an average agent from a great one.
Here are the top 4 demands to make of your real estate agent when buying a home: Continue reading ..
