Glenn Sanford

Founder and CEO, eXp Realty
Glenn Sanford

Since early 2002, Glenn has been actively involved in the online real estate space. In early 2007, he launched BuyerTours Realty, which combined virutal and bricks and mortar offices. After the drop off of the market in late 2008, Glenn and his executive team went back and rewrote the entire business model in recognition of the “perfect storm” of lower revenues, fixed or rising overhead costs, and a consumer with more information and access than ever before.

eXp Realty LLC was launched in October 2009 as the first truly cloud-based national real estate brokerage, which meant giving up the traditional bricks and mortar environment and moving to a fully-immersive 3-D virtual office environment where agents, brokers and staff collaborate across borders while learning and transacting business from anywhere in the world. Since that time, eXp Realty has quickly grown to 25 states throughout the United States and is in the process of expanding internationally.

In 2011, eXp Realty was nominated by Inman News as a 2011 Innovator Awards Finalist in the Innovative Brokerage category and was also among the small number of brokerages profiled in the 2011 Swanepoel Trends Report.

From 2005 to 2007, Glenn ran a large mega-agent team and consulted to Keller Williams International as a member of the Agent Technology Council in the areas of online client acquisition, client conversion and technology. Glenn was also a significant contributor to Keller Williams Internet Lead Generation Masterminds.

Prior to real estate, Glenn was active at the executive level with a number of technology-related companies. In 1998, Glenn founded eShippers.com, an online e-commerce and logistics company which was subsequently sold to a public company where he continued to work as president through September 2001.
