BELLINGHAM, Wash., Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — eXp Realty®, the fastest-growing global real estate brokerage in the world and the core subsidiary of eXp World Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPI), today announced plans to expand its real estate operations into the Dominican Republic, Greece and New Zealand in the first quarter of 2022.
This announcement follows successful launches of nine new markets in 2021, including Puerto Rico, Brazil, Italy, Hong Kong, Colombia, Spain, Israel, Panama and Germany. By the end of the first quarter of 2022, eXp Realty expects to have a presence in 21 countries, including its headquarters in the United States.
Throughout the past year, eXp continued to gain global market share. eXp Realty has over 72,000 agents globally and grew revenue by 97% to a record $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2021.
“We’ve continued to expand globally at a steadfast pace,” said Michael Valdes, President of eXp Global. “There continues to be high demand for what eXp brings to the international real estate market. With the addition of the Dominican Republic, Greece and New Zealand, we continue to solidify our strategic footprint across the EMEA, CALA and APAC regions. The Dominican Republic has, in the last three decades, experienced a period of remarkable economic growth, leading all countries in the Caribbean and Latin America region. Greece is a vibrant market with strong economic projections driven by tourism, excellent foreign investment opportunities, and the Greece 2.0 recovery fund. The country is a key component to our growth on the continent, joining the UK, France, Portugal, Italy, Spain and Germany.
“Additionally, New Zealand boasts a property market with extremely high demand and benefits from the close connection to Australia, where eXp already has a strong market presence.”
As part of the expansion into the new markets, eXp will hire experienced leaders in each country to head up local teams who will be responsible for agent operations and services.
