Michael Valdes joined eXp Realty as executive vice president, international expansion, in May 2020, and he advanced to president of eXp Global in September 2020. He led a team that expanded eXp Realty operations to 17 international locations, all without ever getting on a plane. As the only Latino president of a publicly traded real estate company in the U.S., Valdes is an inspiring, encouraging leader who is well respected for his integrity and for his ability to build community. Valdes has successfully introduced the eXp brand to thousands of people across the globe.
Valdes is also the executive chair of ONE eXp, eXp Realty’s diversity, equity, belonging and inclusion initiative, a group of more than 5,280 eXp Realty agents and staff who are working to build eXp Realty into the most diverse, equitable and inclusive real estate brokerage in the world.
What is one habit that has made a crucial-difference in your success?
The one habit I learned early on is that everything is infinite, and the only thing which is finite is time, and one must use it wisely.
