dotloop Gains Momentum as Collaboration Platform of Choice for Independent Brokerages

Ruhl & Ruhl Realtors, Turpin Real Estate and Jordan Baris, Inc. Join 430+ Independent Brokerages Already Running on dotloop

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2015) - dotloop today announced partnerships with three independent brokerages -- Ruhl & Ruhl Realtors in Iowa and Illinois, as well as Turpin Real Estate and Jordan Baris, Inc. Realtors in New Jersey. These partnerships showcase dotloop as the collaboration platform of choice for independent brokerages, adding to the more than 430 independent firms already using dotloop. The news also follows announcements with Indiana-based F.C. Tucker and Tennessee-based Parks Realty and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World's selection of dotloop as a preferred transaction solution provider through the Solutions Group program.

According to the 2014 National Association of REALTORS® Member Profile, 57 percent of all REALTORS® are affiliated with an independent, non-franchised company. Independent brokerages' unique workflows and staffing structures call for technology that is customizable and market specific.

That's why dotloop's platform allows independent brands to customize the transaction process from start to finish. Additionally, dotloop is dedicated to getting independent brokerages up and running by working side-by-side with each new partner to create a custom onboarding experience that guarantees high adoption rates among agents. For example, over a 60 day period, Turpin Real Estate and Jordan Baris, Inc. reported 81 percent and 88 percent of their agents, respectively, actively using dotloop to get deals done. These companies, alongside hundreds of other independent brokerages, use dotloop to streamline the real estate processes for their agents via its all-in-one collaboration network, as well as provide real-time visibility into transactions for brokers through dotloop BUSINESS and BUSINESS+.
