The Lake Forest, Calif.-based firm’s technology will now allow real estate brokers to create customized checklists to oversee all business activities they perform. Overall, this enhancement creates greater transparency and communication for a broker with their agents and customers.
Through RES.NET, brokers can establish checklists for each transaction type and create lists for agents based on their specific role as a traditional resale, listing or short sale agent. After a broker’s initial checklist is built, agents can specify their property type and role in RES.NET’s Agent Portal, which then automatically configures a checklist based on the broker’s requirements.
RES.NET’s Agent Portal is one of the company’s six platforms that connects all participants of a real estate transaction, including banks, servicers, brokers, agents, vendors and consumers.
“The checklist gives us the back-office support we need and ensures we always have the appropriate documents on hand for compliance and auditing purposes,” said Art Acosta, broker owner of Chino, Calif.-based ERA Regency Realtors.
Any responsibility, from completing disclosure documents to performing walk-throughs to marketing tasks, can be included on a checklist. This provides brokers with complete oversight to their daily activities, due dates, status updates, documents and important data.
Brokers can also designate specific triggers within a checklist to guarantee required steps are completed on time.
“We have worked closely with brokers to identify their business needs and determine how we can use technology to optimize and streamline transactions,” said Todd Mobraten, chief operating officer and president at RES.NET.
“Brokers largely needed a complete back-office management solution, and now RES.NET’s checklists and transparent system ensure they have ultimate control of their businesses.”
