BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwired - July 15, 2016) - eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI) today announced that it has commenced real estate brokerage operations in the State of New Jersey. The company is now operational in 43 states, Alberta, Canada, and the District of Columbia. In addition, the company is in more than 105 different Multiple Listing Services -- MLS Market areas and has more than 1400 real estate professionals, up from 862 at the beginning of the year.
"I'm excited to have the opportunity to bring eXp Realty to New Jersey," said Jeanne Borgers, the Company's Broker of Record in the state. "Agent-ownership's impact on lives and businesses is profound and represents a sea change in the way in which good professionals are valued and treated as partners with opportunities to learn from and build relationships with fellow shareholders on a daily basis across the country."
Originally from Los Angeles, Borgers has been a member of the northern New Jersey real estate community for more than 12 years and arrived in the state after living in Guam and Saipan where she managed a small radio station for 6 years. During the financial crisis she reinvented her career and became known as the "Short Sale Queen" due to her ability to work through and close highly challenging transactions. Prior to joining eXp, Borgers practiced with Keller Williams NJ Metro Group. In 2014, Borgers and her husband Tom (who was a senior fraud investigator for the president's Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission) co-chaired one of the largest fundraisers for the homeless in New York City.
"We are fortunate to have experienced and talented leadership in place with Jeanne as we enter a highly competitive market and a state where the practice of real estate varies significantly from the north to the south," said eXp Realty CEO, Jason Gesing. We look forward to offering new opportunities to and welcoming entrepreneurial professionals across the state into our community of agent owners," said eXp Realty, CEO, Jason Gesing.
