Press Release – For Immediate Release
Top Calgary Real Estate Team Popowich & Company Aligns with “Amazon of Real Estate” eXp Realty
Calgary, AB Canada – February 19, 2021
Jonathan Popowich, Associate Broker and REALTOR® has held the top position in RE/MAX iRealty Innovations for eight consecutive years. In 2015 Jonathan started his team, Popowich & Company which quickly soared through the ranks to be recognized as one of the top teams with RE/MAX Western Canada and one of the highest volume teams in Calgary, selling over $100,000,000 of real estate in 2020.
“At the end of the day, we want to build a business where every client feels like they are our only client.” The real estate industry in highly competitive, with nearly 6000 licensed Real Estate Associates in Calgary competing for approximately 16000 transactions annually. Popowich believes the key to their success is to deliver an elevated experience to home buyers and sellers while offering concierge type service, exceptional marketing and leveraging technology to their clients benefit.
That’s why Popowich & Company has just announced their departure from RE/MAX to what some consider to be ‘the Amazon of Real Estate,’ eXp Realty. Founded and Chaired by an original Albertan, Glenn Sanford, eXp World Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPI) is a holding company for a number of companies, most notably Virbela, Showcase IDX and eXp Realty. First and foremost, eXp Realty is a full service real estate company that also provides 24/7 access to tools, training, and networking through a 3D fully immersive cloud office environment. eXp Realty has been growing at an incredible rate, now with a presence in all fifty states and last month it opened in the ninth Canadian province.
“Through the pandemic we have seen an explosive growth in utilization of technology, and the world is becoming a smaller place.” said Popowich. “Being able to see how our clients can benefit both now and in the future with a company like this made the decision to align ourselves with eXp World Holdings Inc. a no-brainer.” eXp Realty has exceeded 43,000 agents globally which represents a 60% year-over-year growth, and 2000 of these agents are in Canada, with nearly 350 now in Alberta.
Earlier this month, Taylor Carmichael wrote an article for the Motley Fool suggesting who the Amazon of real estate might be in the online space. He points out while the more commonly known online giants like Zillow, Redfin, and OpenDoor Technologies have been competing in this space for some time, eXp World Holdings Inc. has dramatically outperformed them in terms of revenue growth rates with a completely different business model. Perhaps this is why Popowich and his team of experts, along with many of the Nation’s other top teams are making the move from conventional brokerages to eXp Realty.
