|CEO and Founder
Exit Realty Corp. International
Taking a page from the insurance sales industry, where he’d worked, Morris opened Exit Realty Corp. International in Toronto, Canada in September of 1996. By offering sales associates 10 percent residual bonuses from the corporation on the transactions of other associates they bring to the company and mentor this unusual compensation enabled Morris to grow the franchise to over 1,000 offices and more than 30,000 sales associates in less than a decade. Previously Morris had worked at The Permanent, Canada’s third-largest real estate company at the time, and RE/MAX.
