I’m excited to be joining a company and team that shares the same vision and passion that I do. Together, our industry outreach initiatives at eXp will allow me to reach out to agents and brokers in a more supportive yet personal and interactive way. They also provide me the resources and tools needed to continue providing support training, education and tools that help ensure growth and success for industry professionals. I’ve found the place that I’m honored to now call home.”

“Our company has always maintained a commitment to professional development for our agent-owners, one that is geared towards implementation, as part of building and owning their own businesses within eXp Realty. Nobody embodies that commitment more, or can better help us fulfill it, than Brad. We’re very excited to provide a home for Brad so that those who have come to benefit from, rely upon, and enjoy his classes, whether affiliated with eXp Realty or not, can continue to do so across the industry.” said President, Jason Gesing.

Glenn Sanford, Founder and CEO of eXp Realty shared, “After getting to know Brad over the last 7+ years in the real estate industry, we’ve enjoyed having him in the cloud-office to facilitate conversations with top agents and brokers from around the country and across different brands. We have been continually looking for opportunities to collaborate with Brad ever since he visited our first cloud-office environment shortly after our launch in 2009. The timing for Brad coming on board couldn’t be better. He represents the type of individual and talent that we want to invest in on behalf of our agents, brokers and staff. Brad brings to the table a passion for helping agents, facilitating conversations and collaboration regardless of company affiliation which is in true alignment with our Industry Innovation and Outreach efforts.”
