TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Real Brokerage Inc. (TSX: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced it has launched operations in South Dakota, expanding the company’s presence to 47 states and four Canadian provinces.
Josh Boschee, who serves as Real’s Principal Broker in North Dakota, also will assume responsibility for South Dakota. Real opens for business in South Dakota with the top-producing Christians Team Real Estate. The 16-member team, which is led by Jeff Christians, includes six agents who serve the Rapid City/Spearfish metropolitan area and two agents who are based in Phoenix.
“With relatively affordable housing and access to some of the best trails and lakes for year-round outdoor activities, South Dakota was one of the top 10 movers states in 20221. Real’s expansion into this growing housing market allows our agents to better serve their clients,” Real Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tamir Poleg said. “We are thrilled to be launching our operations in South Dakota with an experienced broker like Josh as well as Jeff and his team, who not only know the market well, but who represent the region’s largest new home builders.”
Boschee said, “It’s exciting to be rounding out Real’s presence in America’s heartland. The company’s tech-powered platform and resources that are tailored to support the success of its agents will resonate in South Dakota, where the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well.”
Ranked as one of the top teams serving the Northern Black Hills, Christians Team Real Estate has sold more than 1,400 homes over the past nine years. The team specializes in new construction, leveraging its relationships with the region’s leading developers to provide its clients with a seamless process that allows a buyer to move into their new home before closing on their old one. In 2022, Christians Team Real Estate sold 238 homes totaling $82 million.
“The move to Real made a lot of sense for our team. By leaning into technology and keeping overhead low, I believe Real is able to offer some of the most competitive compensation in the industry and still offer a robust platform for agents. In addition, through Real’s revenue sharing program, our agents have access to an additional source of income designed to build long-term wealth,” said Christians.
