About Kai Real Estate

Kai Real Estate, founded in 2022 by top Berkeley Agent Jodi Nishimura, emerged as a response to the challenges she faced in the industry. Jodi, initially part of a boutique brokerage she cherished, sought an alternative to traditional models after it was acquired. Frustrated with high splits and minimal services, she discovered eXp Realty's agent-friendly approach but missed the local boutique presence. This led to the birth of Kai Real Estate, a community-driven agency that combines agent-friendly splits with the personalized touch of a boutique brokerage. Over the past two years, Jodi and her team have dedicated themselves to serving agents by sharing the systems and technology that propelled her success. The co-founder, Eric Gavidia, brings over 15 years of experience as a professional fundraiser for nonprofits, applying his expertise to create a coaching and mentorship program. Kai Real Estate, a hub for modern agents seeking growth, offers real coaching for real-life success in East Bay's real estate community.

While eXp is a great model, it is missing a key component that Bay Area realtors have come to expect, which is a community of successful agents and a brand that sets us apart. Kai is bridging boutique branding with the amazing benefits of the eXp model, while creating a local top producing eXp agent community.
