Cincinnati, OH (PressExposure) April 06, 2011 -- South Texas real estate professionals are among the growing number of DotLoop users across the country. With 30 new real estate offices adopting the independent collaborative workspace in two weeks, South Texas agents are committed to simplifying transactions for themselves and their clients.
"DotLoop has immeasurably improved my business, especially by helping make me more efficient. My clients love the convenience, and it's another cog in the machine of my business that allows me to give the type of client-focused service my clients have come to expect," said REALTOR®, Terronald Logan of Austin, Texas.
Many of today's home buyers are technologically proficient with mobile connectivity at their fingertips. With technology transcending every façade of their lives, it's become natural for them to look to the Internet for a home.
DotLoop's collaborative workspace gives agents the necessary platform to connect with home buyers exactly how they want - using the speed and efficiency of the internet with the professional expertise of a real estate agent. With DotLoop's "Version-Now" sharing technology, documents can be adjusted and electronically signed, helping agents and clients complete deals with transparent communication.
Amidst the sprawl of Texas, agents and their clients will reduce, if not eradicate, drive time once needed to acquire signatures. With certain areas of South Texas boasting longer-than-average commute times -- relative to other regions of the U.S. -- the time savings accrued from using DotLoop will improve an agents productivity by allotting more individual attention to clients.
The changing landscape of the home buyer's market indicates an immediate need to incorporate technology solutions into one's business. DotLoop users are taking stance and acting on that need.
In the wake of a struggling real estate market, many agents and brokers are experiencing trouble reaching a generation of reluctant, yet tech-dependent home buyers. A 2010 study by Aberdeen group states, "Fifty-nine percent of high-tech companies indicated that the current economic climate has played a prominent role in the organization's need to improve the effectiveness of sales representatives and enrich the leads in a sales pipeline."
Aberdeen Group goes on to report, "Users of electronic signatures were 50 percent more likely to show improved customer renewal rates, 41 percent more likely to reduce proposal errors and 18 percent more likely to shorten sales cycles." While buying and selling homes is more involved than other commodities, the growing demand for an electronic solution such as DotLoop remains consistent with other industries. The collaborative workspace eliminates the "choke holds" of typical real estate transactions that unnecessarily extenuate the home buying process.
With supporting statistics from credible sources such as the Aberdeen Group indicating the need to move towards a technological solution, real estate professionals can't afford to be reluctant to change. South Texas agents are already discovering that using DotLoop's collaborative workspace meets the demands of their clients, while also making their jobs simpler. DotLoop's expansion continues into Manhattan, Upstate New York, Northern Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee and more during the month of April.
