eXp Realty Featured in 2013 Swanepoel TRENDS Report; Similarities Drawn with Amazon.com

Global Cloud Brokerage Joins Keller Williams and RE/MAX in Profile of Three Viable Business Models in Real Estate.

Bellingham, WA, February 27, 2013 --(PR.com)-- eXp Realty International, Inc. is honored to be included in the 2013 edition of the Swanepoel TRENDS Report.

Two years ago, Stefan Swanepoel designated eXp Realty as one of six up-and-coming companies to watch. In this year’s report, eXp Realty is profiled as having one of the three models that The Trends Report sees as a viable business model for the future for broker owners.

The 2013 edition of the Swanepoel TRENDS Report suggests in Trend #2 – The Real Estate Office of the Future, that there are three models that show long term promise. They are:

the large market center concept similar to the model Keller Williams has developed
the cafe style brokerage that is boutique and intimate with comparisons to select RE/MAX offices
the less capital-intensive, cloud-based option that eXp Realty has introduced to the global marketplace

The report draws a strong comparison between eXp Realty and Amazon.com and positions the company as poised to grow as the first (and currently only) real estate cloud brokerage. The report identifies the cloud-based model as a powerful new innovation whose time has come — and eXp Realty as the company leading the charge.
