The nearly 90,000 agents affiliated with Re/Max are gaining access to RES.net’s Agent Portal, a communication and a back-office management tool that will allow them to invite contacts into their networks, share tasks and documents, and send messages to their clients and others involved in transactions.
RES.net builds portals designed for different aspects of the real estate business, streamlining processes and integrating communications between servicers, brokers, outsourcers, third-party service providers, homeowners and buyers.
The RES.net online platform was originally developed for default transactions, said Chief Operating Officer and President Todd Mobraten in a statement.
Now, Mobraten said, RES.net is "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."
The RES.net online platform allows agents to reach potential buyers and sellers and handle transactions completely online from any location using a mobile application, he said.
More than 9,000 Re/Max agents already do business with RES.net, said Mike Ryan, Re/Max executive vice president for 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 homebuying and selling customers," Ryan said in a statement.
Re/Max agents will be able to demo the platform at the Re/Max annual R4 Convention, being held Feb. 25-28 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas.
In December, RES.net announced that it was expanding the listings on the RES.net network to include not only real estate owned (REO) properties, but "prelisted" properties. Mobraten said at the time that about half of the network’s 200,000 users were agents, and the rest included mortgage servicers, settlement service companies and valuation groups.
