TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, announced today that it has expanded its presence in the Mid-Atlantic with its launch in West Virginia. With the addition of West Virginia, Real is now operational in 48 states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. and four Canadian provinces.
Since the beginning of 2023, The Real Brokerage has launched in three states, including South Dakota and Delaware, and the Canadian province of Manitoba. Bernard Pudimott will serve as Real’s Principal Broker in West Virginia.
“As we continue to grow The Real Brokerage footprint in the United States, West Virginia is a natural bridge for our current agents serving clients throughout District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. It also will allow us to attract new agents looking for a platform that offers both the best tools and technology to serve clients as well as long-term wealth building opportunities,” Real Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tamir Poleg said.
Ryan Zook and Janet Brinck, Co-founders of Real’s Dwellus Group, which serves Northern Virginia and the D.C. metropolitan area, shared their excitement in bringing The Real Brokerage to West Virginia. In addition to their local market expertise, they will be able to offer home buyers and sellers Real’s technology, which makes the process more efficient.
“We are thrilled that we can now serve buyers, sellers and investors in West Virginia. We’re seeing a lot of people moving west to get more land and value for their dollar. Hiking trails, beautiful mountain vistas and river activities make it a popular destination for second home buyers looking for an easy escape from the city,” Zook said.
In addition to helping more clients achieve their homeownership goals, Brinck said the expansion will allow the state’s nearly 3,000 real estate agents to realize the benefits of Real’s model, which offers stock ownership, revenue-sharing opportunities and some of the highest commission splits in the industry.
“This expansion opens up the door for independent brokerages throughout West Virginia to plug into a model like Real,” Brinck said. “In addition to the Real agents who are already licensed in West Virginia, we are expecting a significant number of agents to come on board.”
The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX) is revolutionizing the residential real estate industry by pairing best-in-class technology with the trusted guidance of the agent-led experience. Real delivers a cloud-based platform to improve efficiencies and empower agents to provide a seamless end-to-end experience for home buyers and sellers.
