eXp Realty Policy Highlights

Our policies are clear: 

  • Any Agent whose conduct, actions or performance violates or conflicts with eXp’s P&Ps, eXp’s core values, code of ethics, or any other eXp policy, may be released from eXp immediately and without warning. 
  • It is the commitment of eXp to ensure the brokerage is free from negative, aggressive and inappropriate behaviors, and that the environment is aimed at providing an atmosphere upholding our core values. All Agents and employees of eXp have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. 
  • All complaints of negative and inappropriate behaviors will be taken seriously and followed through to resolution. Agents or employees of eXp who file complaints will not be victimized for reporting others for their inappropriate behavior. 
  • Agents who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® are required to be in good standing with their respective state licensure requirements and maintain their mandatory ethics training

When three female real estate agents who use our services first approached our leadership team to describe horrific details of sexual assault by another independent real estate agent, to which leadership was previously completely unaware, we immediately investigated, separated from our contractual relationship with the alleged abuser, and worked to accommodate the real estate agents’ requests, which included moving them to different teams within our organization. eXp immediately terminated our contract with the alleged abuser based on the allegations. The allegations presented serious, credible, and extreme violations of the policies, values, and mission of the company and its leadership. The claims in this case stem from alleged assaults by independent real estate agents who were never eXp employees—which we handled with speed, seriousness, and deep respect as soon as the accusers brought it to our attention, in line with our values and with the law. eXp’s investigation into new claims led to eXp taking corrective action against another male agent.  

eXp hopes and trusts the court will give a full and fair hearing to the plaintiffs as they pursue claims against the individuals who allegedly assaulted them. However, the claims against eXp and its leadership have no basis in fact or law, and to which eXp vehemently denies. eXp has asked the court to dismiss these claims and is prepared to present and defend its position if necessary.

Separately, an eXp agent notified the company about another agent who had been allegedly assaulted in May 2023. The alleged assaulter was not an eXp agent or employee and the assault did not occur at the eXp event location. eXp took immediate action, flying the agent’s family in to be with her, covering her expenses, and banning the alleged assaulter from any eXp event.

We are now learning of new allegations of alleged assaults that were brought forth by another female agent and have begun an investigation into the claims.

The experiences these women shared are abhorrent and unacceptable. We have no tolerance for this behavior, and in each case we took swift and appropriate action to provide support and protection.
