PropertyInfo Corporation, a Stewart company, announced today the successful adoption by Heritage Texas Properties of the Electronic Transaction Solution (HAR-ETS), powered by SureClose, to go paperless.
A recent agreement between PropertyInfo and the Houston Association of REALTORS ® (HAR) customizes the SureClose software for Houston-area real estate professionals. Available only since January, HAR ‘s HAR-ETS has already increased efficiencies for many of the organization’s 24,000 real estate professionals and their clients, and has enabled companies such as Heritage Texas Properties to remove paper from the closing process.
HAR introduced the new platform in late 2011, and made the technology available for its real estate professionals in January 2012. The software offers users access to transaction documents anytime, anywhere through mobile applications for Apple ® and Android ®, bringing efficiencies and convenience to members by eliminating the paper files that can be costly to maintain and time consuming to use.
Heritage Texas Properties, a 13-office, 350-agent operation immediately took advantage of the high-efficiency software to build on its already successful business. With the support of their agents, the company began processing 100 percent of its files on the new platform in February. Heritage Texas staff looks forward to a future which includes easy access and timely management of files.“Heritage Texas Properties is committed to providing our customers with the most efficient and economical solutions available, and HAR’s Electronic Transaction Solution powered by SureClose has enabled us to vastly increase our service levels quickly within the first few months,” said Bill Jones, senior vice president of Heritage Texas Properties. “The 24/7 access to our transaction files, and the convenience of accessing them through mobile devices, have resulted in improved efficiencies that enable us to better serve our customers.” Many of HAR’s members are now taking advantage of the new digital system to improve their own business, and the real estate industry as a whole.
