JPAR Leaders Among the 2020 Swanepoel Power 200

JP & Associates REALTORS® (JPAR) Founder and CEO of Vesuvius Holdings, JP Piccinini, and JPAR and Vesuvius Holdings President, Geoff Lewis, were recently honored as among the 2020 Swanepoel Power 200.

Published annually by T3 Sixty, the publishers of the Real Estate Almanac, the list features the most powerful leaders in the residential real estate brokerage industry that have made an impact on the industry over the past year.

The 2020 edition of the list sees Piccinini in the 92nd spot for having founded the company in 2011 and the remarkable growth it has seen since, with 1,500 agents currently doing nearly $2.7 billion in annual sales while operating an agent flat-fee model.

Lewis, who became Vesuvius Holdings president in 2019, is at rank 159 in the list, in which he was cited for his role in overseeing the 46 JPAR offices across many states such as Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, and the Carolinas. The publication also cited Lewis’ previous work in RE/MAX for 13 years, having served as its president as well.

In choosing the people who comprise the 2020 list, Stefan Swanepoel, editor in chief of the Swanepoel Power 200, remarked, “Power is not a popularity contest. It is not based on a single statistic such as headcount, office count or revenue…The SP200 is based on a great deal of research. Our team analyzes hundreds of bios, annual reports and transactional and sales volume data. We send hundreds of requests for additional information, personally verifying announcements, stats, and actions that took place over the past year.”

The Swanepoel Power 200 is considered to be the most meaningful and accurate reflection of power and influence in the residential real estate brokerage industry.

JP & Associates REALTORS® has built a company that focuses on putting agents first. Opening in 2011, JPAR is taking the real estate industry by storm and earning accolades such as Top 10 Hottest Franchise (according to Inc.), a three-time Inc. 5000 honoree (2019: #1004), and the Fastest-Growing 100% Commission Brokerage and Franchise in the USA (according to Real Trends 500). Since offering franchise services in 2018, JPAR has expanded to 11 states in addition to the brokerage in Texas.

JPAR operates multiple offices across Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, is expanding nationwide, and offers franchising opportunities for entrepreneurial real estate professionals.

JPAR Gives Agents Cut of New Mortgage Venture

JPAR Gives Agents Cut of New Mortgage Venture

JP & Associates REALTORS® (JPAR) announced a joint mortgage venture with fintech startup Avenu and its IntroLend platform.

Introlend is an app that allows the consumer to receive mortgage offers from their different sources, including a wholesale lender that works with the company. JPAR is creating its own limited liability corporation to launch its own branded platform, where agents can buy into owning a piece of the platform.

Agents make money off of the success of the company because they become owners. This means they won’t be violating the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), according to Geoff Lewis, the president of Vesuvius Holdings, the parent company of JPAR. Agents won’t be directly steering a consumer to a specific lender in exchange for a kickback fee. They are presenting the consumer with mortgage offers from three different lenders and can even recommend lenders they have a previous relationship with for inclusion in the app.

“They’re not directly receiving dividends based on the deals they actually refer to the mortgage entity,” Lewis said. “If they have a lender they like working with, a loan officer that’s their favorite, they can invite that loan officer to participate in IntroLend.”

Participation is currently available to JPAR agents in Texas on the corporate and franchise side, but the company is working on getting licensed in more states.

Participation is open to agents that have been with JPAR for at least one year. Each unit is priced at $500 and escalates based on the length of time with JPAR. If you’ve been with JPAR for one year, you can buy-in at up to $1000, 2 years-$5000, three years-$10,000, and four years-$20,000. These levels are the maximum that can be invested.

The venture is expected to scale quickly and provide a nice return for agents.

“One of the things that we’ve said all along is that we’re a next-generation brokerage,” Lewis said. “We’re innovative, cutting edge and agent-centric with our 100 percent commission, transaction fee model.”

The launch of IntroLend is another service in addition to iBuyer, an amazing tech platform, and the agent healthcare offerings and will allow JPAR to continue the massive growth it is seeing in the space.
“This is just another innovation that shows we’re focused on being agent-centric and we believe this will be very important in recruiting and retaining agents,” Lewis added.

Allowing agents to buy into ownership of the mortgage company is the thing that makes this program unique from other IntroLend platform partners.
