Real estate agency goes paperless for Earth Day

April 22nd, 2014 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Document and Information Capture

A real estate agency in Atlanta has embraced green policies for Earth Day, deploying a paperless strategy and document conversion services to operate cleaner and more environmentally-conscious in the future.

According to, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers invested in a solution that would allow them to facilitate 100 percent digital transactions between clients, buyers, sellers and agents. This will minimize the delay between processes, expediting credit checks, financial transaction and paperwork while helping buyers get into their new homes faster, and sellers move on to their next plan.

The conversion process to digital record keeping and transactions will take time, of course, but with high-quality document management software and a strategy that facilitates training, any firm can help its workers migrate to paperless workflows seamlessly and expedite the ROI of these efforts. Kevin Levent, the president and CEO of the BHGRE Metro Brokers network financed this change himself, to help agents within the company to take the next steps without feeling the pressure of financial responsibility.

Regardless of whether a company plans to go 100 percent paperless or transition certain aspects of operations to digital workflows, investing in the right conversion service to support the move is critical. Without converting past records to digital formats, firms will only be going part way, increasing risk for compliance issues or a breakdown when an agent suddenly has to dig up paper records. Full conversion can take time, but with the help of high-quality document imaging services it can be expedited for swift and successful results.
