Marcus Ortner chooses eXp Realty to lay the groundwork for exponential growth
Abbotsford, British Columbia – August, 22, 2022 – With 700+ homes sold and 16+ years in the industry, it’s no wonder why Marcus Ortner has consistently been within the top 1% of all REALTORS® on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. His recent move to eXp Realty expands his ability to develop more agents and better serve his local community.
Marcus helped create — and co-owned — a boutique brokerage, growing it to 30 agents over the course of eight years. A lack of scalability with the previous model had him looking for a better option, which he found in eXp Realty. “Turning to a cloud-based brokerage,” Marcus says, “seemed like the natural next step and gave me the flexibility to do business my way.” With the brokerage upgrade, Marcus has significantly improved his ability to connect with more agents in a positive manner, providing his valuable leadership, skills development, and business coaching to help them exceed their dreams.
“I first heard about eXp a few years ago through a good friend and previous business partner and mentor,” says Marcus. “When I first met my accountant, around 11 years ago, I was creating a 10-year plan – so I had already been in the business for a few years and was working on how to retire, if I wanted to, by the age of 40. Paying a mentor to be in my corner and to hold me accountable (and for me to hold him accountable for his own plans!) was key in sticking to a solid financial and life plan. It’s what I owe a lot of my success to.”
“We see this a lot in high-performing REALTORS®: they want the flexibility to do business in the way that suits their lifestyle and sales goals without feeling stifled by traditional brokerage structures. I can’t wait to see how Marcus leverages the best of what eXp has to offer.”
Phil Hahn, real estate investor and mentor, applauds Marcus’ vision, foresight, and drive to give back to his industry. “We see this a lot in high-performing REALTORS®: they want the flexibility to do business in the way that suits their lifestyle and sales goals without feeling stifled by traditional brokerage structures. I can’t wait to see how Marcus leverages the best of what eXp has to offer.”
“Instead of settling for the status quo and staying within the confines of yesterday’s agency model, Marcus has opted to keep doing what he does best — teaching agents how to refine their craft for their benefit as well as for their clients,” says Randy Dyck, team leader of eXimus Real Estate Team and Inspiration agent/owner at eXp Realty. “It’s so great to see Marcus actively working on improving the real estate industry of B.C., and that’s something that his entire team will benefit from.”
