In the spring of 2018, Vancouver’s Randy Dyck admitted he was a broken agent. Tired, frustrated and questioning his hard work with no future in sight, he took a look at eXp Realty and thought, “this cannot be true.” He spent decades as a broker-owner and a team lead and was frustrated with the challenges of training agents only to see them leave, plus dealing with the risks, liabilities and headaches brokerages bring. eXp was the answer he needed.
“Now I get the best pieces of owning a brokerage and leave the challenging and difficult pieces to eXp corporate,” said Dyck. “On top of that I am not a hyper-local brokerage, so I can contribute to building eXp and my personal wealth and wellbeing anywhere in the world that eXp exists. I now have equity, revenue share and commission sales all wrapped into one amazing brokerage!”
After talking with eXp agent Phil Hahn, Dyck and his Eximus Real Estate Team joined eXp Canada in 2018. “Phil told me, ‘I know your pain. Every team lead goes through this.’”
Dyck grew up on a farm in a small Alberta, Canada town with the majestic Rockies to the west and the sweeping Canadian Prairies to the east. Farming wasn’t his thing, but clothing sales were. And being a black diamond skier located near world-class Whistler Mountain, he managed a sports shop frequented by expert skiers and tennis players.
“I loved sales and the technical aspect of high-end skis and tennis rackets. A guy in the church told me I should be in real estate. I loved sales and helping people getting most of what they wanted. So I got my license and here I am. I can’t say enough for how much it has blessed me and my family.”
