Another company was forced to streamline its operations by shutting down 11 real estate offices in less than two years time due to the sad state of the real estate industry. However, there’s a twist to that since the company did so without shedding a single agent. The RE/MAX Dolphin found a way to reduce the overhead costs of maintaining an office while still retaining their agents by resorting to a mobile real estate office.

RE/MAX Dolphin agents are now armed with laptops, Blackberrys and portable printers. And instead of giving out calling cards with their office address, these agents instead rendezvous with their clients in restaurants, homes, coffee shops and even in their workplaces. The face of real estate has changed with the recession and it’s proving advantageous for companies and agents who know how to adjust to crunch time.

RE/MAX Dolphin broker and executive officer Allan Bernardi said the office has become less of a focus thanks to technology which has lessened the need to get the clients into real estate offices. The practice now is to go where your clients are so it means your office goes wherever you are. With the mobile office, their agents are able to stay connected and become more productive.
