eXp World Holdings, Inc., the parent company for eXp Realty and VirBELA, has acquired all the assets of Showcase IDX, the leading real estate search technology company that helps agents market and grow their businesses and online presence.
Showcase IDX’s services include property search for online and mobile platforms, lead generation, state-of-the-art mapping, and CRM tools and integrations. With this acquisition, eXp will be able to strategically focus on creating a consumer portal and continued innovation in the home-search technology space. Showcase IDX will continue the growth of its existing IDX product and business, providing customers ongoing value and improvements over time.
Founded in 2003, Showcase IDX’s customers include thousands of agents from the United States’ most successful brokerages. Showcase IDX will be wholly owned by eXp World Holdings, but its business will remain separate and continue to operate its services for customers. Showcase IDX’s Founder and CEO Scott Lockhart and all staff will remain, moving the company’s Atlanta-based operations to a team suite in VirBELA Open Campus, a free virtual world where anyone can host or attend immersive online events, meetings and classes.
The acquisition aims to expand eXp’s reach by creating a consumer portal for home search, market intelligence and agent marketing. Both companies will remain focused on creating new ways to help people find and buy the home of their dreams with the expertise of a professional real estate agent. This approach puts the home buyer and seller at the heart of the process, guided by innovative cloud-based tools for agents and teams that help provide consistently exceptional experiences at scale.
