EXP Sponsor: Your Guide To Picking the Best in 2024

We will walk you through the process of picking the best eXp sponsor and give you some tips on how to make the process easier.

If you are looking to join eXp Realty, then you first need to pick an eXp sponsor. This may seem daunting at first, but it is really not as difficult as it seems. However, it is one of the most important decision you’ll make at eXp Realty. This will impact your entire experience with the company. We go through the process of picking the best eXp sponsor, while giving you some tips to make your decision easier.

What is an eXp Sponsor and Why Do I Need to Pick One to Join eXp Realty?

Every agent that joins eXp has to be sponsored by an agent who is already with eXp Realty. Before you can finish signing the eXp Realty ICA (Independent Contractor Agreement) and application, you must pick the person who has “most influenced your decision to join eXp”.

Picking the best eXp Sponsor is so important, because your sponsor is imperative to your success with eXp Realty. Additionally, the value he or she brings will be a great impact on your real estate career. Once you choose your eXp Sponsor, you cannot change. You must leave the company for 6 months, and return naming a new eXp Sponsor.

No professional recruiting

eXp Realty is an unique brokerage model because they do not pay for a professional recruiting team, unlike most traditional brokerages. Instead, the founder of eXp Realty, Glenn Sanford, is a visionary. He left the recruiting and growth side of the brokerage to their agents through an opportunity called Revenue Share.

What is Revenue Share?

Revenue Share is a completely optional program, but it is available to each eXp agent, on day one. If you wish to grow a Revenue Share organization, eXp Realty shares with the agents a percentage of the eXp side of the 20% commission split (eXp Realty has an 80/20 split). Nothing is paid to the eXp Sponsor out of your side of the 80% commission split. For a full explanation of how Revenue Share works, see the video below.

How Revenue Share works at eXp Realty.

The benefit for you is that your eXp Sponsor is incentivize to help you grow your real estate business. Furthermore, if there are no sales, then there is no revenue share for the eXp Sponsor. The eXp Sponsor does not gain a referral fee for bringing on numerous agents. They have to be successful as well as a leader if they wish to enjoy the benefits of revenue share. The eXp Sponsor acts as your partner and another mentor for your real estate business.

How Do I Go About Finding and Picking the Best eXp Sponsor?

The best eXp Sponsor can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know anyone who is currently at eXp Realty. How do you know you are picking the best eXp Sponsor for your real estate business?

Your eXp Sponsor as it reads in the ICA is someone “who is the most influential individual in your decision to join eXp Realty”. That is all that is “required” of your sponsor. Yet, with over 83,000 agents, the best eXp Sponsor that also provides additional value, would be the most beneficial for you. Here are some questions that will help you decide which eXp Sponsor is ready to be your partner or which one just wants to collect a revenue share check:

  • What training and support does your potential eXp Sponsor and your Sponsor’s organization offer you? Does it go above and beyond what is already offered to every eXp agent in the eXp World?
  • Is your potential eXp Sponsor’s values align with how you would like to run and build your real estate business?
  • Does your potential eXp Sponsor have a system in place to run a successful team. Furthermore, are they duplicatable for your own business?
  • Does your potential eXp Sponsor believe in eXp’s Core Values?
  • Does your potential eXp Sponsor give you the systems and trainings to either focus on production, revenue share or both?
  • How will your eXp Sponsor help you get started?
  • Is your potential eXp Sponsor willing to invest more time into your success, rather than their own?
  • Ask your potential eXp Sponsor what their personal success when it comes to revenue share.

Keep in mind these important points:

  • Your potential eXp Sponsor is NOT always going to be the first agent that you talk to about eXp.
  • Your potential eXp Sponsor should NOT be a random agent found online who you never spoken with. It is ok to find an agent online, but meet with them over a virtual meeting. Importantly, get to know them first to see if they are a right fit as your business partner.
  • Your potential eXp Sponsor does NOT need to be friend or family member who is currently with eXp. Sometimes these people are not always going to be the best business partners for your real estate business.
  • Your potential eXp Sponsor does NOT need to be a local agent in your area.

The best eXp Sponsor that offers the most collaborative culture is one of the key indicators that you will be successful at eXp Realty.

Every eXp agent has access to 7 tiers of sponsors above them from their Sponsoring Organization. This is great for additional support and mentorship.

Your Sponsoring Organization: Untapped Potential Partners 7 Tiers Above

Most agents are aware of the 7 tiers below in your revenue organization and the benefits. However, what most agents don’t talk about is the power of your 6 partners above your eXp Sponsor.

You have immediate access to the 7 levels of eXp Sponsors, which means you have 7 times the support. Your eXp Sponsoring Organization will also have additional tools and resources that are available to you as well. It is powerful because while your eXp Sponsor is a great resource, its like gaining 6 additional eXp Sponsors. They all bring their unique value skillsets and systems to your real estate business. What’s more, it helps you to plug in instantly and hit the ground running from day one.
