'Andare' dares to downsize the real estate office

Intero thinks small with high-tech, low-overhead concept

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

An open floor plan featuring leather sofas, chairs, cafe tables and large central work consoles, within a high-end retail development in California’s Silicon Valley, may sound like an Apple store or coffee shop.

But this no-cubicle floor plan is Intero Real Estate Services Inc.’s new office model, dubbed Andare. The concept is simple: a smaller, technology-rich office to better meet the needs of today’s mobile real estate agents.
