BELLINGHAM, WA – February 5, 2016 – eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB: EXPI) today announced that Ryan Hightower, one of the real estate industry’s most prolific lead generators, has joined its brokerage operations in Arizona. Hightower, who brings with him a team of agents, attributes much of his success to the Kunversion Website+IDX+CRM+PPC infrastructure which eXp Realty presently offers to all of its agents at no charge.

“Using Kunversion in combination with social media and other resources, I’ve been able to generate more than 16,000+ leads in the past 24 months and I did it mostly for free,” said Hightower. “On a typical day, I capture anywhere from 50 to 100 leads into my Kunversion database.”

In less than six months, Hightower has grown a team from 0 to 22 agents and to one that closes transactions at a rate of nearly one per day.

“Ryan Hightower is one of the top 5 agents in the country using the Kunversion platform for lead generation. His willingness to teach and share with other agents how he successfully uses the platform is what really sets him apart,” said Kunversion Sales and Marketing Manager, Chris Zach.

Hightower is scheduled to begin teaching his techniques to eXp Realty agents, brokers and guests on Friday at 12 noon EST in the amphitheater on the Company’s Cloud Campus.

“With a national, non-franchise model, I can build my team within eXp and across markets, leveraging leading technologies that I am already a firm believer in and which eXp Realty provides its agents so they can build businesses and achieve mobility, financial freedom and an ownership interest both in fact and spirit. I’m excited to help the company grow nationally and internationally,” said Hightower.

In 2015, Kunversion profiled Hightower’s success in a commercial video that can be viewed at

“We’re excited to have Ryan share the secrets of his success on our Cloud Campus in furtherance of our commitment to providing enhanced and collaborative professional development opportunities for and among fellow agent-owners and peers,” said Brad Andersohn.
