REX Real Estate Agent

About REX

REX is a well-funded, game-changing real estate technology startup located 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. Having proven the effectiveness of the REX model in 2015 and grown rapidly in 2016, REX is expanding nationwide in 2017.

As part of our social mission, REX sets aside a portion of all income from selling homes to fund homes for families in dire need. It is our mission to contribute one home for every 40 homes we sell. We’ve started in Sihakouville, Cambodia, where we partnered with World Housing and the Cambodian Children’s Fund to help homeless families get back on their feet.

About The Position

REX is rapidly expanding our presence in Southern California and we’re entering the Orange County, Riverside markets. We're seeking a licensed agent to work with the REX team and our home buyers and sellers in the Orange County, Riverside area. 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. Transactions are managed with support from the REX tech platform and team, which include engineers, marketers, customer support, transaction coordinators, attorneys and a CA licensed broker.  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.

  • Recruit and supervise Associate Agents and Showing Reps – find 2-3 local, part time people to open homes for showings and open houses
  • Comply with REX policy manual and all BRE/legal statutes that mandate what agents will do – including visual inspection of property, ensure disclosures are consistent with what you see, sign necessary documents and disclosures

…all with the goals of delighting REX buyers and sellers while exemplifying the REX brand through every interaction and minimizing risk.
