Australia was among one of the first countries added during eXp Realty’s international expansion and now its nearest neighbour, New Zealand, has been added as well! New Zealand becomes the 21st country where eXp Realty has brokerage operations. (Read press release here.)
“We are very excited to launch New Zealand as our 21st market, strengthening our position in Asia Pacific by adding to our existing operations in Australia, India and Hong Kong,” said Michael Valdes, President of eXp Global. “New Zealand benefits from close ties to Australia and also boasts a property market with healthy demand, and a culture that is tech-focused and highly adaptive to advances in the market. We are excited to empower agents in New Zealand with our unique model and tools.”
Australia was added as the fourth country to eXp Realty’s locations in December 2019 after Canada in 2012 and the United Kingdom in November 2019. eXp Realty launched in 2009 and its headquarters are in the United States.
Maria Stephens, who has more than 12 years real estate experience as an agent and senior brand manager, will lead operations in New Zealand.
“As a company built by agents, for agents, eXp’s unique value proposition will mark an important evolution for real estate in New Zealand,” says Stephens. “With a highly competitive model, eXp offers the opportunity to be part of a global powerhouse, with innovative tools and training and the freedom to build a team and business.”
Already in 2022, eXp Realty has established new brokerage operations in the Dominican Republic and Greece and recently announced plans to expand to Chile and Dubai. eXp Realty is able to expand rapidly around the globe due to its immersive and agile cloud-based work platform.
