Editor’s note: In celebration of Black History Month, we are featuring eXp Realty agents who are sharing their stories of service, values and commitments.
The desire to help families achieve their American Dream of homeownership was strong for Jemimah Chuks.
“My business services are available to all cultures, all people, because I believe in diversity and equality. The biggest thrill for me is watching the excitement on the faces of my clients as they explore these beautiful homes, and watching the joy as they sign their closing documents to receive their keys,’’ she said.
That passion for helping people is certainly working. In the three years since Jemimah launched her real estate business, she has blazed a trail in Delaware.
But it was her move to eXp Realty that pushed her sales into the stratosphere.
“This is my 10th month with eXp Realty and I tripled my sales, capped in one month, and became an ICON Agent within 3 months. I am also a certified mentor and certified in the Affinity program,’’ Jemimah said.
Jemimah is not exaggerating. Her business has exploded 300% in volume since joining eXp, skyrocketing from $11.5 million to $34 million. She’s making deals selling to first-time homebuyers and handling new construction and land. She’s also helping investors in Sussex, Kent and Newcastle counties.
“I got better at lead conversion and have been able to build my business on auto referrals with the help of the great technology systems provided by eXp,’’ Jemimah said.
Her story is another example of how eXp’s technology, community and mentoring has made a major difference in the way real estate agents can maximize their business and network.
