Cloud Based Real Estate Brokerage with Jesse Dau

=================================================Welcome to the Real Estate Revenue Streams Podcast | Episode 3! =================================================Today, I am interviewing one of the most influential real estate agents from the San Diego Bay market. His team comes from 50 agents driving over 100 million dollars/ year in production, Kyle Whissel!➡️ What’re your INITIAL thoughts before joining EXP?➡️ When did he get started with EXP and what led him to join?➡️ How does coming over to EXP impact his business?➡️ How accessible are the brokers in CA compared to after joining EXP?Being an independent broker for 8 years of his early real estate career, Kyle never thought of joining a brokerage since he thought the cons outweigh the pros. From Kyle:The brand is not the brokerage.We are our own independent brand. The brokerage is just a vehicle that we clear our transactions through.With eXp, there’s no need for his agents to live from commission check to commission check. Now, their agents have the ability to build passive income for themselves which was something that he can’t provide his agents before joining eXp.➡️ Tips from Kyle for agents that are still starting out:With the clear cooperation policy going on, you don’t need to take on all that stress, liability,  and those headaches that a broker takes on. Let eXp take all of that and focus on building your team. In Kyle’s case, he started out with a team of 20 members and now his members increased to 50 agents..................and so much more!If you are looking into cloud brokerage as your next move, don’t hesitate to reach out for a confidential consultation! ======WE GOT YOUR BACK! 💯Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn!========Jesse Dau========Real Agent Now GroupBrokered by eXp Realty ========📲 Call/Text Direct:Mobile | 503.475.7078Office  | 541.883.22070📲 Email:  jesse@realagentnow.com👨‍💻 Website: living-inportlandoregon.com
