- ONE Dream Team completed $60 million in closed sales on 230 units in 2023
- 18 agents, 3 support staff moved to eXp Realty
- Based in Columbus, Indiana while serving Central Indiana and beyond
Indiana’s John and Kimberly Wischmeier always led their ONE Dream team with an agent-first focus. So when the opportunity came to change brokerages, they jumped at the chance to join eXp Realty, which aligned perfectly with their mindset. Plus, kicking unneeded expenses to the curb was a welcome benefit, too.
“The opportunity to be structured both as a brokerage and an agent for success in today’s changing market was a large factor,” said John. “Trimming office expenses and lease agreements to run a lean company that can pivot quickly to meet client and agent needs was of the utmost priority. The future cost savings are immense both as a Realtor and a business owner.”
With that realization, the Wischmeier team moved their 18 agents and three support staff to eXp Realty in December 2023. Last year, their team completed $60 million in closed sales on 230 units while serving clients in and around Columbus, Indiana, Central Indiana and beyond.

Why did you join eXp? Who introduced you?
“The agent-first focus and having real people to match the technology you need to thrive, not just survive in today’s changing market were deciding factors for us joining eXp. We’ve watched eXp for a while, but after seeing several friends and agents make the move successfully from our prior franchisor, it was a no-brainer. This is home.”
How long were you considering the move to eXp?
“This has been an almost 5-year journey. We’ve looked at the company for years, and as opportunities aligned, now was the time to make the change for our family and our real estate professionals. This move is lowering our professional’s monthly out-of-pocket expenses, increasing our market exposure, and doing what we have always sought to do — take better care of the real estate professional so they can take care of their clients.
“We studied the models hard, and eXp was the clear winner when compared to competitors in supporting their real estate professionals and their clients in all aspects. This was the perfect time to transition to move from a Realty ONE Group franchise to eXp.”
What are your impressions of eXp so far?
“Unwavering support, unbeatable people, resources, and dedication to their real estate professionals. We sold our first house in under 24 hours of our transfer, which is unbelievable. We have always believed in an agent-first approach and eXp has shown to match exactly that at every step as we grow together.”
What has surprised you about eXp?
“The revenue opportunities at eXp are phenomenal both for us as a team, and our real estate professionals. eXp truly shares our vision of taking care of real estate professionals and their clients — not just one of them.
“The size of the team at eXp also offers opportunities for agents and clients we cannot offer at another company. Having 90,000+ agents allows eXp to better market properties, and ensure no matter where a client is moving, we can help find a quality agent in that market — not something we could do with a smaller franchisor.”
What types of real estate do you specialize in?
“Our team is ready to support clients in residential, commercial, luxury, investment, and many other transactions. We happily help first-time homeowners through Fortune 500 entities in their real estate needs. We have handled relocation from almost all 50 states and several countries. We are here to support clients no matter where in the world they may look for their dream home.”
