eXp Realty Updates Shareholders on Growth Milestones

Agent and Broker Base Has Increased Over 40% Year-to-Date

BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2015) - eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB: EXPI), the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage™, announced today the success of its growth objectives for 2015 as increasing numbers of top producing professionals join its agent community across multiple and diverse markets.

"We are pleased to report at the mid-year point that we have surpassed our expansion goals and in particular, over the last 60 days, we have enlisted a significant number of agents who qualify as top producer Icon level agents," stated Glenn Sanford, CEO of eXp Realty, adding "The Company's commitment to Agent-Ownership, which has been enhanced in recent months by the release of the Company's 2015 Icon Agent Program, and its Direct Purchase Program whereby agents can elect to set aside a percentage of commission income towards the purchase of Company stock at a discount, have helped propel our agent base by more than 40% year-to-date."

The Company has approximately 650 agents and brokers across 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces after closing 2013 and 2014 with 344 and 467 agents respectively. Recent growth has been bolstered by the expansion in Texas following the Company's announcement on April 23rd that Mr. Gene Frederick, top recruiter in the Keller Williams system in 4 out of the last 10 years, was joining the Company. Keller Williams is regarded by many as the largest real estate brokerage company in the United States.

eXp Realty President, Jason Gesing added "Also contributing to growth is the Company's Making it Rain program, launched in February that delivers high-quality leads to agents and brokers at a significantly reduced cost to those generated and sold by popular third-party syndicators such as REALTOR.com, Market Leader, Zillow and Trulia. Each new entrepreneurial agent who joins the Company validates our position that many of the leading industry professionals possess a strong ownership mentality and a desire to be part of a culture of collaboration among fellow shareholders. We are excited and proud to offer opportunities not otherwise available in the industry and believe it will continue to help the Company build long-term shareholder value."
