Elgin, IL, June 03, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Gary Jacklin, broker/owner of RE/MAX Action, 1550 Maple Ave., Lisle, Ill., understands just how important technology is in today's residential real estate business. He has made the use of technology a critical part of his mission statement, which all the agents in his office embrace. As a result of their commitment and expertise, the office recently received the Technology Award from the RE/MAX Northern Illinois real estate network.
The award goes to the RE/MAX Northern Illinois brokerage that uses technology most efficiently to maximize both agent and office productivity, and RE/MAX Action was honored for having the top Web presence among more than 100 offices in the network.
Last year, RE/MAX Action ranked first in the RE/MAX Northern Illinois region for unique website visitors and leads captured. The office also has been paperless since September of 2010 -- an environmental benefit as a well as a technological one -- and it provides ongoing advanced technology training to each of its agents.
Jacklin and the agents working in his office have also embraced the new CirclePix virtual tour technology adopted by the regional RE/MAX network. It allows home buyers to take virtual tours of listed properties whenever and wherever they have internet access, giving them the chance to see key interior areas of each property. Jacklin believes so strongly in the value of this particular innovation that he has provided his agents with their own CirclePix accounts free of charge.
