Ryan Gattermeir brought the idea of joining this ground-breaking brokerage to both of his partners back at the end of 2016 and the decision to make the change was not one that was taken lightly.

In 2008, when three top local agents Ryan Gattermeir, Conda Davidson and Ed Schmidt created Gattermeir Davidson Real Estate, the goal was to create a company that was on the forefront of technology and the latest market trends.

They invested heavily into lead generation tools, online marketing and office systems that few other area companies were utilizing at the time. Over the course of 9 successful years, Gattermeir Davidson has grown to be the largest independent real estate company in the Lake Area with annual sales volume exceeding $100M.

Fast forward to 2017 and, yet again, these same three agents are embarking on a new venture with eXp Realty, the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage®. eXp Realty is one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the U.S., growing in size to 2,401 agents on its platform at the end of 2016 and reaching 3,000 agents as of March 15, 2017. Overall, eXp Realty has seen over 200% growth in agent count over the past 12 months.

At eXp Realty, their family of agents and brokers build their own businesses while establishing a direct ownership interest as a shareholder in the Company’s publicly traded parent, eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI). It is not a franchise, rather a nationwide agent-owned real estate company.

Ryan Gattermeir brought the idea of joining this ground-breaking brokerage to both of his partners back at the end of 2016 and the decision to make the change was not one that was taken lightly.

“Gattermeir Davidson Real Estate is very special to all of us”, said Gattermeir, “We wouldn’t be making the transition if we didn’t firmly believe that eXp Realty represents the future of the real estate brokerage model. The culture of agent ownership and revenue sharing means that each agent has a vested interest in providing our clients with the best customer service and technology to our Buyers and Sellers, combined with the benefits of national marketing exposure and a growing network of other agent-owners.”

Conda Davidson added, “The eXp Realty business model is more progressive and agent-centric than any I’ve seen in my 25 years in this business. This is a tremendous opportunity for us and our agents to be part of a game changing company with huge growth potential!”

eXp Realty, has been recognized as one of the most Innovative Brokerages by industry news publication, INMAN News and continues to gain attention as their market share grows.

“As agents evaluate the eXp model, they will see that it not only offers them an opportunity to earn more income but, more importantly, build a strong financial future by helping other agents to be successful through an aggressive revenue share plan. It’s a win-win for everyone”, stated Ed Schmidt.

eXp Realty CEO, Jason Gesing, recently visited the Lake Area to help kick off this new venture. “We are very excited to have Ryan, Ed, Conda and the rest of the Gattermeir Davidson team onboard,” said Gesing, “Increasingly, eXp Realty is the destination for top producers and broker/owners. We are committed to offering a value proposition that is so strong that it would be professionally irresponsible for an agent to affiliate with any other brokerage.”
