REX is a well-funded, game-changing real estate technology startup based in Woodland Hills, CA. With the goal of improving the lives of homebuyers and sellers, REX created a digital platform and real estate service that eliminates traditional agent commissions, sells homes faster, and shifts control away from agents over to those who matter most: consumers! REX home-sellers only pay a 2% fee for the entire transaction, and we go around the MLS to target home-buyers directly with sophisticated marketing that we are pioneering in real estate. Over the last year, REX has expanded to Colorado, Texas, Northern California, New York, New Jersey, and Portland from its roots in Southern California. In 2018, the company increased listings by 300% year-on-year, representing homes cumulatively valued at over $1 billion and in the process, saved customers over $12 million in fees they otherwise would have paid traditional brokers.

About The Position:

We're looking for an energetic, customer-first licensed agent with a deep understanding of the DC/VA/MD market to join the REX Sales Team. The ideal candidate will generate excitement about REX services, build strong relationships with prospective customers, and help buyers find their next dream home. The REX Agent will leverage the platform, marketing efforts, and team to show homes, attract buyers and sellers, and manage relationships through to successful closings.

  • Collect seller leads whenever possible during buyer marketing communications with the goal of converting actual and potential buyers into REX sellers
  • Provide expertise on the home buying and selling to the broader REX team suggesting improvements to our marketing and operations
