Like politics, all real estate is local. But at the same time, the industry is a global one, and those with the drive and acumen to take on the worldwide market will find their opportunities and perspectives greatly expanded. Enter Michael Valdes, who in just a few short months, has taken the eXp brand to Brazil, Italy, Hong Kong, Colombia, Spain, Israel, Panama and Germany—all without ever stepping foot on a plane thanks to the company’s incredibly powerful technology and communication tools.
Along with leading this exponential growth, Valdes also gave back to his international communities, joining an effort to build 100 new homes in Morelos, Mexico in the wake of a devastating earthquake there. Valdes says it is the ability of the eXp platform to “change agents’ lives” that inspires him everyday to “spread the word of eXp across the globe.”
