DotLoop Announces Nationwide Agreement With Keller Williams Realty
80,000 agents go online to increase efficiency and reduce costs
CINCINNATI, Jan. 10, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- DotLoop, the trusted source for sharing and signing documents online, announced an agreement with Keller Williams Realty, the third largest franchise operation in the U.S., to provide its services to 80,000 agents in nearly 700 locations in North America.
The agreement, approved by Keller Williams Associate Leadership Councils, makes the DotLoop platform a central component of the company's eEdge initiative, which will allow agents and clients to access, share, and sign documents at the click of a mouse. The agreement is the largest of its kind in the history of the real estate industry.
DotLoop has developed the only platform for the real estate industry where users add, adjust, approve, and sign documents in one secure, online environment.
The current real estate transaction process can be inefficient and cumbersome. Piles of paperwork are delivered, emailed or faxed and become more complicated with each offer and counter-offer. Both real estate agents and their clients will enjoy the benefits of the DotLoop System:
- Increased efficiency: documents can be sent and signed electronically, saving time and automating certain steps in the transaction process;
- Improved accuracy: in additional to tracking all changes that are made within the documents, all activities are logged and time-stamped to maintain a thorough record;
- Convenience: documents can be accessed online and viewed securely at any time from the comfort of your home, office or mobile phone;
- Reduced costs: fewer copies, less storage space required, and less time spent on administrative functions.
"Keller Williams is determined to stay ahead of the curve to provide the most services and support in the industry to our entire network -- especially in today's real estate climate," said Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty. "This is just the latest demonstration of our commitment to helping our agents accelerate their leadership internationally as well as in their local markets."
DotLoop is an online platform that promotes efficiency for all parties involved in a real estate transaction, including consumers and real estate agents from other brands. Any agent can work with a Keller Williams associate at no cost, which is facilitated through a simple email invite granting access to the DotLoop platform.
"In today's connected world, consumers expect the kind of accessibility and convenience that DotLoop provides," said G. Austin Allison, CEO of DotLoop. "Keller Williams and their associates are committed to delivering only the greatest level of service to their clients; we are proud to be part of this effort."
