eXp Cloud: Meet eXp Realty’s Virtual World
In 2016, eXp Realty migrated their entire business to the virBELA platform to form a mega online campus that offers all the benefits of an office with the flexibility of working remotely.
Let’s take a closer look inside eXp Realty’s virtual world and how it’s changing the game for real estate agents.
Addressing the Problems of Working Remotely
Remote work is on the rise across many industries, including real estate. Workers now have fewer reasons to drive to an office to perform the same work they could do at home, or wherever they happen to be.
As a result, workers claim to be more productive (especially with no lengthy commute to work) and enjoy a better work-life balance.
But working virtually isn’t without its issues. For starters, it’s taken away the benefit of being immersed in a company culture that can help your career thrive. You don’t have teammates around you to collaborate with, ask questions, or gain insight and inspiration.
eXp Realty is combatting this problem through its virtual campus. It looks and functions just like an office, except you’re not chained to a desk and you actually want to be there. It’s a central meeting spot for their 16,000+ agents (imagine putting that many people in a real office!) where they can receive training, network, and expand their real estate careers – all in an online environment.
Enter eXp Realty’s Virtual World
No matter where you are in the world, eXp Realty’s virtual world is just a few clicks away. Think of it as a real-life version of The Sims, except the characters are real agents just like you.
First, you’ll create a custom avatar that highlights your personality. Then, you can start exploring the campus in real time. Take a seat in their meeting hall and enjoy the day’s training. Or, head to their information sharing room to talk with real agents and gain industry insight. They also have virtual support centers where you can ask questions or get help.
eXp Realty’s virtual world is hosted by virBELA, a virtual reality company specializing in business training solutions. They’ve created thoughtfully designed rooms intended to increase engagement and participation from its users. Their technology centers on collaboration and productivity, giving users valuable tools to make the most of every moment they spend there.
It’s one of the most unique things ever to happen to remote work, fusing the traditional office with work-at-home capabilities.
Bringing Technology and Innovation to the Real Estate Agent
eXp Realty’s virtual world is just one example of their dedication to technology and innovation. They’ve created a full suite of solutions tailored to the modern real estate agent, including lead generation, paperless sales processes, and CRM, to help you manage every area of your business from one central hub.
