Michael Valdes joined eXp Realty with over 25 years of experience in global real estate and finance. Valdes was the senior vice president of Global Servicing for all Realogy Corporation brands (Sotheby’s International Realty, Corcoran ERA, Coldwell Banker, Century 21, Better Homes & Gardens.) Clearly eXp is looking to “move forward” throughout the world with the expertise and global network Valdes brings to the table.

Offerpad just announced the launch of its customer-driven Real Estate Solutions Center. Customers share the details of their current home, upload recent photos and schedule virtual tours from anywhere. Offerpad then evaluates the home on its data-driven platform and then present the owner with a cash offer plus additional selling options including selling the home immediately to Offerpad or partnering with Offerpad to list the home. Company founder and CEO Brian Bair said, “For those looking to sell…or list their home…I am confident that with our extensive real estate experience and one-of-a-kind renovations division, Offerpad’s solutions cannot be duplicated.”

Redfin, after restarting its home-buying business in earlier May, is expanding its mortgage lending operations in Arizona, Delaware and New Hampshire. With the addition of these three states, Redfin Mortgage is now offering both fixed and adjustable rate conforming mortgages in twenty states plus the District of Columbia.

Redfin Mortgage is, according to the company, featuring “no lender fees and offers competitive rates, fast pre-approvals and on-time closings.” Additionally, offers a 30-day closing guarantee or an extra $1,000 credit towards closing costs to the buyer and fully remote digital closing capabilities except in Delaware due to local regulations.
