With Earth Day here, many businesses are making the switch to go green. One eco-conscious real estate firm is taking action. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers, has entered into an exclusive partnership with DotLoop to provide an entirely new paperless transaction experience for their real estate buyers, sellers and agents.

By implementing DotLoop, real estate buyers can view all of their contracts and documents online and see the status of their real estate transaction every step of the way. From negotiations to complete offers with electronic signatures, everything about this partnership streamlines the real estate process and provides a planet friendly alternative to the mounds of paperwork that Realtors and their clients usually have to print to process.

In order to encourage the conversion from paper to virtual contracts, President and CEO Kevin Levent is picking up all of the costs and offering this service for free to every Realtor in the BHGRE Metro Brokers network. In addition, Levent is also providing extensive training opportunities to give Realtors the chance to become familiar with the program.

“When I came up with the full plan for our new transaction system, I looked at a countless number of companies,” said Levent. “DotLoop was the only company that shared my unique vision and was willing to introduce new innovations into their product that will only be available to Metro Brokers agents.”

Unlike any other online document systems available, BHGRE Metro Brokers is heavily integrated in the backend of DotLoop. Documents are instantly shared with their office managers, who can turn around and send it to the accounting department. With this type of backend assistance, transactions will move from contract to closing even faster than before.

In addition, DotLoop allows BHGRE Metro Brokers’ Realtors to share documents and tasks with their clients and other pertinent people to the transaction, all in one place. By eliminating physical documents and moving to a secure online environment, BHGRE Metro Brokers can obtain eSignatures even if clients are at work or on vacation, so that clients don’t have to be inconvenienced.

How it Works

BHGRE Metro Brokers Realtors simply invite their clients and all necessary parties to a ‘loop’ (similar to an online room with online file cabinets) and use collaborative documents needed to complete the transaction – without faxing, scanning, printing or using multiple technologies. On average, DotLoop saves BHGRE Metro Brokers up to 10 hours per transaction; deals are closed 40 percent faster; and the improved communication and clarity results in more deals reaching the closing table.
