It’s Time To Stop Playing Small
Any agent can build a small business on their own with very little help from a brokerage. In fact, many brokerages ride on their agents’ personal success without providing much support at all. Don’t be someone else’s cash cow.

Your brokerage and team should be working to get you to your to your goals.

Having achieved quick success in real estate after college, Matt Hartman spent seven years starting a couple of tech companies… only to come back to his first love, real estate.
Based in Orange County, Matt has always been immersed in two worlds: Real estate and technology, which is why eXp Realty “spoke his language.”
“When I look at the eXp model, I knew immediately that it’d be the platform I’d design if I had thought of it,” said Hartman with a laugh. “It’s finally the disruption needed to the brokerage model that would allow independent agents to compete and thrive well into the future.”
What It’s Like to Work With Matt…
Doubled My Business in My First Year
“The training I received from Matt Hartman was training I had never received from other offices. Matt was like a personal coach. He wanted all of his agents to succeed. I doubled my business in my first year. I did what he suggested I do.”
– Missy Book
Self Growth: Life from a Different Perspective
“I never knew I would learn so much about myself or invest so much into my self-growth to become an even more well-rounded person because of this job. Thanks to Matt I’ve grown a lot as a salesperson, and as a human being, and I’m so grateful to him for introducing me to life from a different perspective.”
– Angie Hsieh
A Phone Call Away From the Best Advice
“I joined with Matt and the Cornerstone team about 6 months into my new career and that made all the difference. The support I received was second to none, there always is an agent, broker, or agent partner who is ready to address my concerns and questions. Matt has always been there or just a phone call away to give the best advice.”
– James H Kim
Our Agents Can’t Stop Talking About Cornerstone x eXp
My name is Jimmy Kim with EXP Realty (The Cornerstone Team) and I am writing this testimonial as The Cornerstone Team has changed my life. When I first started real estate back in 2016 , I started off with a smaller company of 3 total agents in the Los Angeles. My biggest struggle I had with them is there was no trainings , no shadowing, no mentors for me to understand the business. I then moved to a bigger company with 150+ agents and learned a lot as there were weekly trainings and updates. The issue I had with this company is that everything needed to be done by us as agents, meaning, I had to be the CEO, the sales person, the assistant, the call center, you name it. I was lucky enough to meet Matt Hartman through my title rep and it has completely changed my life. Going into specifics, Matt has created such an amazing company to take care of the backend work for us as agents. Do you need marketing help? Done. Do you need a design team? Done. Do you need help with any contracts or any deals that you are currently running into any issues? Done. Now, I strictly get to focus on what I love to do, helping the clients and having the backend issues I had handled by our team. Since 2017, Due to the help of Matt and The Cornerstone Team, I was able to 3X my GCI and sustain and grow it here for 3 straight years. I would like to say Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I’ve had my license for a long time now, but it wasn’t until I joined Matt at the Cornerstone Team that I felt like a true Realtor. I didn’t really have any clear plans on how I can grow my business. Since I’ve joined the Cornerstone team I’ve learned all the fundamentals from sales, presentations, negotiations and building relationships. The first time I heard another agent chose to do business with me over other agents that have submitted offers because of how well I presented my buyers was a great feeling. I have to say that is because I have not only a great broker but a great mentor. Everyone on the team is so helpful and wants to see everyone be successful. I can’t thank them enough for all the help they have given me, anywhere from logos, postcards, social media and technical support. Joining this team is one of the best move I’ve made towards my business.
Cornerstone team has been an absolute blessing! Starting a new career past the age of 40 was a scary transition to say the least. I started with First team as a brand new agent and had a very difficult time adjusting to the office culture and new business. I joined with Matt and the Cornerstone team about 6 months into my new career and that made all the difference. The support I received was second to none, there always is an agent, broker or an agent partner who is ready to address my concerns and questions. Matt has always been there or just a phone call away to give the best advice. Having the Cornerstone team in my corner has given me the confidence it took to win listings & work with buyers and give my clients the best possible service. I have interviewed and visited numerous offices in the past and have found them to be lacking. The workplace culture Matt and the Cornerstone team has developed is by far the best that I’ve experienced. We are all very friendly and always willing to help each other out. I’ve asked many questions as a newbie to my fellow agents and I’m proud to say that I’m now able to be that for the new agents. My thought is “The secret sauce” to success in our business is joining the right brokerage and having the support you need. The Cornerstone team is that “right” team!!
My biggest challenge was getting the business. I didn’t have any systems in place. I wasn’t getting repeat business. When I joined The Cornerstone Team I felt like a new agent. The training I received from Matt Hartman was training I had never received from other offices. Matt was like a personal coach. He wanted all of his agents to succeed. I doubled my business in my first year. I did what he suggested I do. Keep in touch with your SOI, Call my past clients, send notes, I learned better sale skills that I never had. My favorite part of being a part of the Cornerstone Team is the support we get. The partners agents, staff, and Matt of course are always there to help with all of our real estate questions and needs.The culture of the office is awesome. Everyone is so kind and willing to share what they are doing. I would and do recommend friends that are Realtors to our office because of the culture and the support we get! I plan on staying with The Cornerstone Team as long as I am doing real estate. Why would I leave?
Before I joined the Cornerstone Team, I switched brokerages almost every year, trying to find the right fit for me. During that time I was a part-time agent trying to make enough money to transition over to being a full-time agent. After 1st few real estate deals, I realized I needed a bit more direction than what the other brokerages were providing. I needed a broker who could help me solidify my understanding of what Real Estate is all about, helping me to learn what a normal work day looked like and to create my own system, instead of what most brokerages did “so and so made this much last week, and so and so had x listings, alright, you can do it too! Go sell homes YAY!!!! I always believed in hard work, but with no direction, I was unsure of how to even put in the work in the Real Estate industry.
Everything I did felt like a waste of time, and I wasn’t seeing any results.
On top of that, one of my biggest fears was to be like a slimy car sales agent. I have pride in my integrity and was determined to keep it. After talking to Matt a few times, I realized that I didn’t have to throw my morals out the window to make a living. I could help people by focusing on what I’m good at… problem solving. I’ve learned a lot at Cornerstone, and I’ve had to face some challenges I didn’t even know existed… Work/Life balance (Although I feel like this is going to be a life long learning process). To me, being in Real Estate is not just about selling and buying homes nor about the big commission you earn, it’s about the relationships we build and the clients’ happiness and relief when we hand them their keys. I never knew I would learn so much about myself or invest so much into my self growth to become an even more well rounded person because of this job.
Thanks to Matt I’ve grown a lot as a salesperson, and as a human being, and I’m so grateful to him for introducing me to life from a different perspective.
What I love most about Cornerstone is the environment we created. We call ourselves the Cornerstone family, and every time I see a coworker I haven’t seen in a while, it’s like seeing an old friend. I LOVE my agent partner, she knows me well enough to give me a push when I need it, give me a hug when I’m down, pick me up when I’m in pieces and encourage me to keep going. Real Estate can be a lonely road, but it doesn’t have to be, not when you have a strong team behind you.
