Beginning May 10, members of the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) have access to documents via dotloop, a transaction management platform to synchronize documents for agents on the web. All of TAR’s 100,000 members can access dotloop’s services, free of charge, moving forward.
“We are very pleased to offer the 100,000 members of TAR easy access to their forms in dot loop,” Austin Allison, founder and general manager of dot loop, said in a statement. “Home buyers’ expectations have dramatically changed as technology has evolved, and with the technology provided by dotloop, members of TAR will be able to efficiently move their transactions along.”
Dotloop, owned and operated by Zillow Group, is now in almost 100 associations and MLS agreements, allowing a simplified and streamlined service for organizing and safeguarding transaction documents.
Katie Sharp, senior administrative manager of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Texas Realty, says dotloop has enabled her firm to improve communication in the real estate process and saves staff and agents “dozens of hours” each week.
“We are excited to have access to TAR forms directly in the dotloop platform to conduct transactions,” she said. “Getting access to TAR forms is an integral step in this process.”
Dotloop allows TAR’s members to share, sign documents and monitor transactions over the internet. At the end of last year, the company revealed a new privacy guarantee that stated data wouldn’t be used without customers’ permission.
