Real estate brokerage eXp Realty appointed Leo Pareja as its chief strategy officer on Monday. Pareja, a two-decade veteran in the industry, will develop strategies to grow eXp’s competitive edge and its agent value proposition as a part of his new role.
Pareja started at eXp as the president of its Realty Affiliated Services, supervising its products and services like mortgage, title, escrow and lead-generation. During his tenure, he and his team launched Revenos, eXp’s new buyer and seller referral division. He also headed the strengthening of eXp Solutions.
“Leo is a true visionary who has already left a tangible mark on our agent community with new initiatives like Revenos, which has reimagined referrals and lead-generation for eXp Realty,” said Glenn Sanford, founder, chairman and CEO of eXp World Holdings. “I am confident that in his new role, Leo will expand eXp Realty’s competitive advantage with new and groundbreaking initiatives.”
Prior to eXp, Pareja was the co-founder and chief strategy officer at MLS technology vendor Remine, later acquired by MLS Technology Holdings, LLC. He also co-founded real estate financing company Washington Capital Partners in 2012.
He started his career as a real estate broker at Keller Williams Realty, Inc. where his team, the Leo Pareja Team, ranked as the top Keller Williams team globally in 2010. According to his LinkedIn, his team at KW closed 4,000 transactions totaling 750 million in sales volume in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C.
He is continuing his role as the co-founder of Pareja Family Foundation, which aims to empower women and minorities without a college degree and help them get jobs in technology and government IT sectors.
Pareja also featured in RealTrends’ The Thousand report as a top real estate agent on the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals’ (NAHREP) top 250 list. In 2011, he was recognized in Realtor Magazine in the 30 under 30 agent category.
