Fred Tessier has a resume that is constantly evolving. He is a real estate investor and the head of a marketing agency whose clients include Google, MetLife, Nestle and BMW to name a few. So when it came time to add Realtor® to his CV, he decided to join eXp Realty in 2020.

“eXp is truly the disruptor of the real estate business,” said Fred. “The same way that Uber is to the taxi industry, Turo is to the car rental industry, Airbnb is to the hotel industry, streaming is to the music business, and so on, eXp is changing the face of the real estate industry forever, including being ahead of the metaverse with our virtual platforms!”

Fred Tessier says the world revolves around tech, innovation and social and eXp Realty is at the forefront.

And now add “TV star” to Fred’s resume after he led his New Jersey clients to a successful purchase on “NAR’s First-Time Homebuyer Show,” a real estate TV series debuting on Hulu for Season 2 on Episode 3.

“Me and my team (Tessier Property Group) have been making great strides throughout the real estate industry with our great social presence. Then, out of the blue, we got a call from a TV producer for NAR and Hulu (who saw our social media presence) and wanted to feature me on the TV series called ‘First-Time Buyer.’ At first, I thought it was a prank, but they sent their production crew to New Jersey, pitched the episode and I walked them through the whole journey of what took place with my clients. Everything you saw really happened during the purchase journey.”

While Fred is still running his marketing agency, he’s also growing his real estate business by investing in future properties to rent and flip. 

“Being licensed with eXp is the best experience ever! Most brokerages are holding onto the past. But the world revolves around tech, innovation and social and I don’t see how they are keeping up, but eXp Realty is.”

When and why did you join eXp?

“I joined eXp in September of 2020 and I must say that I am having the time of my life! As a New Jersey Realtor®, entrepreneur and real estate investor, eXp provided me with the flexibility, freedom, resources and the network that I needed to run my business efficiently, while also providing great ways to scale. In addition, eXp is tech-focused, digitally driven, and they are the future of real estate. eXp is single-handedly eliminating the brick-and-mortar space for real estate franchises, and the company is truly built for entrepreneurs and business leaders of the future.” 

What makes eXp special to you? 

“eXp is the ONLY real estate brokerage that puts the agents first! As an agent and partner here at eXp, we receive continuous equity/stock within the company, we earn income through a shared-revenue program, we have unlimited resources to build and grow our teams, we have less liability as team leaders and brokers, we have a $16K cap ($8K cap for contractual team members), we have NO franchise fees or any other crazy fees like other brokerages, and finally, we have a global footprint! I honestly could go on and on!”

Is there a significant experience you can share since you joined eXp?

“My bank account won’t stop growing, haha! It’s actually almost scary because it’s happening way too fast! In addition, I also love seeing the growth of my partner agents and how real estate is truly changing their lives. The future is looking very bright for all of us!”

What is one thing about eXp that surprised you?

“At typical real estate brokerages, everyone is very competitive with each other, but at eXp, our agents are very COLLABORATIVE and we’re all here to help each other win and grow!”

What kind of collaboration have you experienced at eXp?

“Whether it be agents in various markets/regions, or leaders within the organization, they are all very collaborative and they are all here to help each other grow. There’s not ever a time that I’ve reached out to someone here and didn’t get a response back within 12 hours or less. We’re a family and it truly shows!”

Best tip to share with other agents:

“Focus less on competitive nature and focus more on collaboration. In addition, stay in your own lane and do not follow the crowd. Find your niche, find what works best for you and grow it to the highest potential. Finally, be consistent, continue to educate yourself in all things real estate, and ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS plan! You won’t go far in life by trying to ‘wing it’. Have a vision, plan for it, strategize it and then execute it!”
