Chemainus realtor Simmonds moves to Cloud Brokerage

Simmonds has been in the business for two decades

The real estate industry has undergone some dramatic changes in the last few years and local realtors have been searching for alternatives that suit them.

Among the veteran realtors who have embraced new ways of serving the market is Debbie Simmonds who has been in the business for two decades, operating out of Chemainus. Simmonds recently decided to bring her considerable experience, team, and talents to eXp Realty, the Real Estate Cloud Brokerage.

“The conventional real estate model is broken and needs someone to look at the overall process to improve it,” explains Simmonds.

“eXp Realty has uncovered an innovative solution that provides world-class IT and real estate marketing, with a cloud-based structure that allows for lower fees as well as access to thousands of agents and agencies — beyond what’s available on MLS.

“As well, for the first time in my life, I have the ability to participate in a pension plan through eXp’s generous revenue-sharing model. I’m very excited to offer this world-class service to the families and businesses of Chemainus and the Cowichan Valley.”

Simmonds ranks as one of the most successful realtors in the Cowichan Valley over her career. She is a Platinum Club member, Founders Club honouree, the Cowichan Valley’s top market producer, and former managing director for some of Vancouver Island’s busiest RE/MAX locations.

“Debbie’s active involvement in her community has earned her a reputation for generosity, and her personalized, focused customer service and ‘get it done’ approach to real estate has created substantial success for her and her team,” said real estate entrepreneur and eXp Realty shareholder, Phil Hahn.

“With eXp Realty’s advanced resources, combined with Debbie’s extensive experience as a managing broker and her track record as an associate realtor, Debbie and her team will be well equipped to serve the people and businesses throughout the Cowichan Valley. We’re looking forward to her continued success.”

eXp Realty, The Real Estate Cloud Brokerage, is the largest residential real estate brokerage by geography in North America. It is one of the fastest growing real estate brokerage firms in North America with more than 23,000 agents across 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and six Canadian provinces.

The company recently announced expansion into the United Kingdom and Australia.

Simmonds recently opened a new office on Willow Street in downtown Chemainus, next door to the RE/MAX office.
