Simple Software - Part 2

Imagine...what if Apple were to design real estate software?  OK, that's not going to happen anytime soon.  But in the meantime, we are going to give it a shot.  Simple, simple, simple.  Focus on the really important stuff and forget all the fancy features that require a PHD to operate.  More background...visit our earlier post:  Simple Software?

Version 1.0beta of Go! is now available.  Below are a series of screen shots from the web version.  Click on each thumbnail to see the full screen image.  Click your "back" button to get back to this page.

When you sign a listing or put a buyer under contract, we set up the transaction for you in Go!  If you have a set of checklists that you use already, we can load them for you.  And if there are certain people who do certain tasks for you on each transaction, we will be sure we tag them to their tasks.  It's not rocket science.  And it can be as simple or robust as you choose.

For our common partners...such as the sign guy, the virtual tour company, etc...they will use this system to schedule their work.  And if there is a vendor you use frequently, we can set them up an account so that they can check it for updates and schedules.  If you have an assistant, this is a great way to stay on the same page.  And if you have a lender or attorney you work with frequently, Go! allows you to collaborate online and avoid sending the same attachments to everyone.

And yes, the documents...this is where you will find your documents that you turn into the concierge, or email to  They will be neatly filed on the "documents" tab, waiting for you to review, print, or email them.

Going on vacation?  Are you working with another agent in the office to cover your backlog?  Set them up with temporary access to your Go! account.  They will have everything they need.

Want to show seller exactly what you have been doing to market their home?  Print a report from Go!

Tired of trying to remember all the small tasks that come up when moving towards closing?  Put together your checklist once, and let us load it here for you each time you put a home under contract.

PS.  Look for upcoming posts about the sister iPhone app.
