WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - eXp Realty World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI) announced today that Sally and Stephen Koss, founders of the venerable Landmark brand in Greater Boston have joined eXp Realty, the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage™ after 31 years as franchisees within the RE/MAX system.
"We're extremely grateful for the opportunities that RE/MAX has afforded us over the course of the last three decades," said Sally Koss. "We care very much about the agents who have been a part of our family during that time and recognize that they have had the greatest impact on our success in the industry. We are now able to move away from the bricks and mortar infrastructure. With eXp we have access to ground-breaking real estate technology to better serve our agents and clients. Most importantly though, we are able to thank our agents by providing them with the very same opportunities that we have -- ownership as fellow shareholders able to build organizations within and across markets. While there are other companies in the industry that are publicly held, the driving force behind eXp's public company status is to give direct ownership to its agents and brokers. That's a game-changer for us."
Since 1985 Sally and Stephen Koss have built and developed the Landmark brand, one of the strongest in Southern New England under the RE/MAX umbrella, opening or acquiring numerous offices along the way in the Massachusetts communities of Boston; Stoughton; Sharon; Taunton; Westwood; Milton; Wayland; Wellesley; Bedford; Concord; Acton; Lexington; and, Lincoln.
"When the industry's most credible, most respected and shrewdest brokerage owners look closely at our high-engagement, low overhead, agent-ownership model the choice becomes clear," said eXp Realty CEO, Jason Gesing while at a kick-off event on Monday in Waltham, Massachusetts. "New Englanders are very progressive and also very thorough in their examination of new concepts, new technologies and new opportunities. The decision of Sally and Steve to join eXp Realty, particularly when presented with countless proposals for the next phase of their careers, speaks to the power of the eXp opportunity, but also to the degree to which they view and value their agents as true partners in their success. Since 2009, eXp Realty has been committed to providing agents, teams of agents, and brokerage-owners with the systems, support, culture and community needed to thrive in an evolving industry and in unpredictable economic conditions, allowing professionals to build scalable teams of agents in any of the markets that the company serves without additional capital requirements."
