  • Dream Town Realty agents will not have access to more than 25 Chicago coworking spaces through Deskpass

Working remotely isn’t new to real estate agents, but the booming trend is opening up a whole new opportunities.

Chicago is home to dozens of coworking spaces to accommodate this crowd, and now Dream Town Realty agents have access to more than 25 of them.

Dream Town Realty is the first brokerage in Chicago to offer its agents access to Deskpass. Deskpass is a membership program that provides users access to coworking spaces throughout the Chicagoland area on daily basis. Through the iPhone or desktop app, users reserve a space at one of the available coworking offices.

River North, Wicker Park, West Loop and Gold Coast spaces are just a handful of the neighborhoods where Dream Town Realty agents can find a space to work. Deskpass also has a few suburban locations in Aurora, LaGrange and Evanston.

Some of the city’s most popular spots — like NextSpace, Level Office and Assemble — are available to agents.

The service serves a bigger purpose than just a place to get some emails sent and documents lined up. It’s a place to network– and it’s a good place to network.

“Our brokers want to spend less time commuting and more time working with their clients,” Dream Town president Yuval Degani said.

“Not only will they now be able to meet them in convenient locations, but Dream Town increases its reach and recognition exponentially throughout Chicago and into the surrounding suburbs.”

Currently, Deskpass is only available in Chicago.

A rising trend and shift in lifestyle

Exceeding beyond meeting new clients in a coffee shop, coworking spaces afford agents the ability to establish a presence with the neighborhood face-to-face. And studies show that more individuals and companies are going to follow this trend.

Huffington Post reported on the trend and its impact on the commercial real estate market in the future, citing a CBRE report that forecasts the traditional office setting to be uncommon by 2030.

Why? People seek a non-redundant lifestyle where they can collaborate with others.
