3 Ways Technology Is Changing the Way Real Estate Agents Work, Downers Grove, Illinois

Since a simple home search will return a long list of available properties in your area, many wonder whether modern technology hurts or helps real estate agents. However, the advent of searchable listings, online forms, and convenient texting facilitates professional transactions. Here are three ways technology is changing the way real estate agents work. 

How Technology Helps Realtors

1. Improving Visibility 

With the help of email and the internet, real estate agents have a broader reach with their targeted markets. In addition to showing online photos of homes, agents can even schedule online showings or show aerial images of neighborhoods, making it easier to reach interested parties. Information about homes will also be listed in a variety of forums and websites, helping other agents to learn about listings their clients have an interest in. 

2. Simplifying Paperwork 

Gone are the days of havingreal estate to meet your real estate agent at the office to take care of necessary paperwork. With online document signing and cell phones, agents may quickly talk with their clients about offers, have forms signed, and move forward with negotiations. 

3. Creating More Time

Since finding or selling the right home and completing the necessary paperwork is much faster, agents have more time and flexibility to take care of serious negotiations. They can sit down with other brokers, talk about the details of the deal, and wait for responses—without disrupting client timelines. 


With technology changing almost every aspect of the home sales and acquisition process, it has never been a better time to consider a career in real estate. EXIT Strategy Realty is the fastest real estate brokerage in the upper midwest, largely in part because of the excellent perks it offers to its agents. With over 40 offices throughout WI, SD MN ND and IA and hundreds more across the country, EXIT Realty provides kickbacks for real estate agents who refer other agents, along with retirement and beneficiary residuals. Learn more about this company by visiting their website, or by giving them a call at (651) 505-3570.
