With restrictions on opens and auctions Andrew Kyriacou from Xsell Property is thankful he and his team have had the RESO – real estate sales online – platform up and running for more than six months.
Hear more about how RESO has kept Andrew selling…
Q: How do you use technology and how have you approached the last couple of weeks?
A: I’m one who has always been an advocate of technology. Anything that I can leverage time with I’m a big fan of.
Q: When did you start using RESO and how has that helped you saving time and serving your customers?
A: I’ve been using RESO now for about six months and for me what was critical, it’s not about saving my time and making life easier for us in our procedures but also for the client as well. We want to try and make things as easy as possible for everyone.
Q: How have you found the technology? Is it user-friendly?
A: I’ll give you a recent example. Several weeks ago I was selling a property and one person was actually working in the mines, so you can imagine you’re restricted to the facilities there. So, all you have to do is press the link, the buyer fills in a few details, submit – there you go. You can show those reports to the vendor, so it’s very simple.
Q: With restrictions on opens and auctions, how has RESO made your processes easier?
A: What I’m seeing out there is a lot of buyers struggling in terms of the processes, given what’s happening in the last few weeks. So, for us, because we’ve embraced this technology early, I wouldn’t say business as usual but we’re still able to conduct deals and help out clients as comfortably as possible.
Q: How have you found business? Are people still looking to sell?
A: Just like people need to shop for groceries there’s no exception for real estate. People need to buy and sell all the time due to their specific scenario. So, we’re making life easier by using online platforms like Docusign, Virtual Tours, Facebook Live and RESO.
Q: How does RESO help you streamline your services?
A: What I like about RESO is its user friendly with other platforms. For example, when they’re putting their offer in using the RESO platform, one button and it straight away goes into REI forms and your contract is formulated. It is absolutely a lifesaver.
Q: In the current circumstances, what would business be like without RESO?
A: In the current climate we’re in, if I wasn’t using RESO we would not be productive at all. Remembering we are solution providers to the vendors problem and RESO certainly helps facilitate that.
