RES.NET, a provider of software applications connecting real estate professionals and consumers and RE/MAX, a leading global real estate franchisor, will provide RE/MAX agents direct access to RES.NET’s online platform. This technology enables agents to transform how they manage transactions and streamlines the entire process. It also allows them to communicate more effectively with all involved parties; consumers, other agents, third party vendors, and title and closing companies. Agents will receive technology demonstrations and learn more about the benefits at the RE/MAX annual R4 Convention to be held Feb. 25 – 28 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Hotel.
RES.NET’s Agent Portal, which is both a communication and a back office management tool, enables RE/MAX agents to invite contacts into their networks, share tasks and documents and send real time messages to their customers and other parties involved in the transaction. The platform allows agents to provide buyers and sellers full transparency in the process, dramatically improving productivity and accountability. In addition to expediting the transaction, the RES.NET platform helps agents meet consumers’ desire for convenience by letting them complete tasks online and even sign documents electronically. Agents can also post offer submission links to the MLS, which drives all offers to the platform, as well as provides exposure to grow their business opportunities.
“We developed the platform initially to aid in the efficiency and compliance of default transactions,” said Todd Mobraten, COO and president of RES.NET. “However, we are proud to work with RE/MAX in introducing this technology to agents managing any type of property. Consumers have adapted to using technology in every aspect of their lives, and the real estate industry must also evolve. Now, agents can reach potential buyers and sellers, and handle transactions completely online and from any location using a mobile application. The comprehensive solutions offered by RES.NET and RE/MAX complement each other – RE/MAX cultivates agents’ skills and business operations while RES.NET provides the advanced tools that make agents technologically-savvy and help them meet consumers’ expectations. Together, we are able to deliver the best service and experience possible to both real estate professionals and consumers.”
“More than 9,000 RE/MAX agents already do business with RES.NET, and they’ve come to rely upon the quality and dependability of the technology,” said Mike Ryan, RE/MAX executive vice president, Global Communications and Branding. “We’re sure that many more of our agents will soon discover the efficiency of the RES.NET platform and use it to assist their home buying and selling customers.”
With nearly 90,000 sales associates in more than 85 countries and celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, RE/MAX is committed to providing brokers and agents the tools, support and training necessary to excel. RE/MAX is built on a foundation of premier customer service and a track record of delivering strong results.
Patti Truman, a RE/MAX agent in Naples, Fla. said, “As a real estate agent for almost 20 years and a user of RES.NET since the company’s inception, I know I could not live without this system. By housing all details of our business in one central location, the platform saves a considerable amount of time by letting me easily identify tasks that must be done in a timely manner. RES.NET is incredibly easy to navigate and a system that I know can benefit all agents.”
RES.NET, initially established in 2003 as a subsidiary of USRES, provides an array of portals designed for different aspects of the real estate industry and integrates servicers, brokers, outsourcers, third-party service providers, homeowners and buyers. Through specialized portals, RES.NET users can each access the same system to optimize communication and streamline processes. The portals deliver a customized, automated workflow and centralize data and documentation to create a continuous audit trail. For more information about RES.NET, visit its website at www.res.net.
