Paperless Real Estate Is The New Norm At Taft Street Realty
Here at Taft Street Realty we've gone (almost) completely paperless! Eliminating paper in our brokerage has been a natural progression, as our lives professionally and personally have transitioned to the digital realm. Admittedly we haven't gone completely paperless - yet! But we'd wager that we're one of the most paperless real estate brokerages in Ulster County NY! Taft Street Realty is reducing and eliminating the use of paper for a number of reasons: efficiency, lowering costs, and to benefit the environment. Here are the steps Taft Street has taken to eliminate the unnecessary use of paper in Hudson Valley real estate!
Docusign - Where would we be without Docusign? We certainly remember the days of driving around trying to obtain signatures from clients - and we don't miss them one bit! Though some clients may still be resistant to signing documents digitally, when we explain the benefits they see the light! It is secure and efficient - with digital copies stored and distributed to all parties concerned. Best of all - it saves paper, resources, energy, and (perhaps most valuable and important) time!
Trusfax - The perfect compliment to Docusign! Remember the joys of faxing? Staring at the fax machine, calling back and forth, "Did you send it yet?", finally receiving a grainy, dark, and smudged copy of a copy, of a copy... Trustfax eliminates these hassles and eliminates the paper! Both Trustfax and Docusign save documents as PDFs. When Taft Street Realty sends a fax, we simply e-mail the PDF to Trustfax with the recipient's fax number, and it is sent for us - no paper involved!
Cloud Storage - No real estate brokerage would be complete without the enormous file cabinets full of old documents right? Wrong! Taft Street Realty has been experimenting with different cloud storage services in order to safely and securely store our files so that they are easily accessible and always there when we need them! Cloud storage gets rid of the paper (and those darn file cabinets!)
No paper? No problem! - OK we admit we still keep some paper files around the office and we may even have a file cabinet or two. But in 2013 one of the goals of Taft Street Realty is to become completely paperless! We've found that the more we digitize, the more time we have for our clients! Many buyers and sellers are saying we are one of the most responsive brokerages out there. We stay light on our feet and often times respond to home inquiries within minutes! Going paperless has allowed Taft Street to provide better service overall. Buyers searching for Ulster County NY real estate appreciate our quick and friendly service! Going completely paperless is the future of real estate!
