Vikki Bartholomae Joins Side to Help Advance the Interests of Top Agents and Brokers
Bartholomae’s Move from President of eXp Realty to Side’s Chief of Agent Success Aligns with the Future of Real Estate
Side, the only brokerage that uses technology to transform agents and brokers into market-leading companies, today announced that Vikki Bartholomae has joined the company as Chief of Agent Success. Bartholomae, a recognized leader in the real estate industry, previously served as President at eXp Realty, where she helped the company grow from 500 agents to 15,000 agents in three years. At Side, Bartholomae will be responsible for helping top agents be recognized as the leading service provider in their market, by establishing, growing, and developing their own boutique agency. Throughout her career, having also worked as a team leader and agent, Bartholomae has been at the forefront of industry disruption.
“When I first heard about Side and realized that it offers true equity in a way that allows agents to own their own business, and grow that business, without having to operate it, I had to be a part of that. I just had to,” says Bartholomae. “The model, combined with the technology and platform, is truly disruptive. Side is a partner, equally invested in the business, that innovates on behalf of top agents and ensures that they continue to have sustainable growth.”
Bartholomae is also known as a champion of technology, assisting agents behind-the-scenes so that agents can focus on what they do best - providing their clients with the best experience and results. Led by experienced industry professionals and technology innovators, Side develops technology from the ground up to improve agent productivity, compliance, marketing, and client experience. As a result, Side’s platform saves agents an average of 62 days of time per year, and allows them to address the needs of more clients.
“The problem is that the technology in real estate today is designed to get between the agent and the client, and what makes Side revolutionary is that our tech works behind the agent and enables them to do better and more for their client,” Bartholomae is excited to share.
“I am thrilled to have Vikki on board as we expand our partnerships with top agents and further empower them to realize their full potential. Vikki’s record of customer service and rapport with the agent community is unparalleled,” said Side Co-founder and CEO Guy Gal. “We are excited to have Vikki work to advance the interests of Side partner agents towards our common vision and goal.”

The company exclusively partners with the best agents to create, grow, and power their own business, without the cost, time, or risk. Led by experienced industry professionals and technology innovators, the Side team is continuously developing technology that improves productivity, compliance, marketing, and customer experience, all to support their best-in-class partner agents.
