realtrends game changer 2021

Glenn Sanford is tops on the list, literally. Today, the Founder and CEO of eXp World Holdings is No. 1 on the RealTrends 2021 Game Changers List.

This esteemed position is based on brokerages with the biggest transaction side percentage growth between 2016-2020, based on RealTrends 500 data. What were eXp’s numbers during that time? An incredible increase of 2,418% growth, going from 9,490 sides in 2016 to 238,981 sides in 2020, or a difference of 229,491.

“While my name is on the award, it’s really a tribute to eXp Realty’s agents and brokers who have worked hard to generate record production levels in the past five years to achieve this recognition,” said Sanford. “It’s just another validation of eXp’s exponential success in empowering the new economy through our people, platforms and personal and professional development.”

RealTrends named 14 real estate leaders to its third annual list, which is subjective and based on data RealTrends collects through agents, teams and brokerages across the country.

“In speaking with these leaders, I learned that each brokerage firm grew in different ways, whether through mergers and acquisitions or via organic growth,” said Tracey Velt, managing editor of RealTrends. “But they all had one commonality, great leadership with a clear, focused growth plan.” 

eXp Is Breaking Growth Records Year-over-Year

eXp has been on a torrid pace of agent growth, which also translates into record production levels for the company in terms of volume and transactions. Take a look at eXp’s impressive numbers:

  • No. 1 Top Mover for Transactions — eXp was ranked No. 1 for the largest increase in closed sides from 2019 to 2020, going from 130,627 sides to 238,981, which is an increase of 108,354 sides, or 82%.

  • No. 1 Top 5-Year Mover for Transactions — eXp was ranked by the largest increase in closed transaction sides from 2016 to 2020, going from 9,490 sides in 2016 to 238,981 sides in 2020, or a difference of 229,491, which is an increase of 2,418%
  • No. 2 Top Mover Volume — eXp was ranked No. 2 by sides that had the largest increase in closed sales volume from 2019 to 2020. eXp went from $36,233,976,502 in 2019 to $72,207,936,907, which was an increase of $35,973,960,405, or 99.2%

“Our focus on agent success has attracted agents in record numbers,” said Dave Conord, eXp President of U.S. Growth. “This recognition of Glenn’s model is a validation that eXp Realty is a company where agents come to succeed.  We’re attracting the best in the industry and our collaborative community is changing lives like no other model can.”

“We believe in measuring performance over multiple years, because it’s the truest way to find out who is leading in the brokerage business,” says Velt. “This year’s group of Game Changers led their respective brands and models in growth of closed sides over a five-year period. We believe this is a mark of consistent persistence — how a leader establishes a culture of achievement and gets buy-in from the whole team and then gets it done.”
