Technology Offering

Technology Support

Real Estate is a relationship business. It's all about people.  In today's world, there are many ways to connect with people and create those relationships needed to help you secure more business.  We embrace the synergy between real estate and technology, and offer our Agents training and support to navigate through and learn about the ever changing technical tools used in the real estate industry.

Our Information Services Department consists of Full-Time "Tech Gurus", dedicated to supporting our sales associates, as well as company equipment maintenance.   Have a question on your personal laptop or PC?  Unsure which mobile phone to purchase?  Many agents have no background in technology and are frequently misinformed or even taken advantage of when asking salespeople for help.  We offer technical support five days a week!

All of our offices house the latest, greatest, state-of the art machinery including color copies, high-speed scanners, computers and binding equipment, and our Technicians ensure you never have to worry about our machines going down!  Each of our offices are wireless, and our Technicians will set your laptop up to all of our printers.  Our philosophy is to handle all the details so you can concentrate on what you do best - real estate!

Social Media and Technology Training

Whether you consider yourself "Tech-Saavy" or "Technically Challenged", Star Real Estate helps our Agents with as much or as little as you need.  Our weekly training classes cover everything from the basics such as Zipforms, MS Publisher and Word, Facebook for Realtors 101, etc., on up to more advanced classes like Blogging, Twitter, Advanced Tempo, YouTube and video campaigns. Our trainings are done in person, not an on-line tuturial, so you get hands-on, usable direction at your speed, and you always have someone you can go to with questions.

Technology should be a tool to allow you to become more efficent, while getting better results for your efforts.

Websites

Amongst the major advantages we offer our Realtors, is the commitment to providing you access to the latest technology tools at the lowest possible cost. In this market, an IDX website, E-mail Marketing tools, and a robust CRM system are a must! We employ the best possible technology available to Agents today.

 

In addition to a 100% web-based CRM, Website and Marketing solution, we provide A comprehensive marketing program, including print and electronic marketing and business development materials, designed to facilitate the sale of real estate and the growth of your business.
