Consultative Brokerage and CRE Software Customer Portals

On September 23, 1962, TV viewers of all ages journeyed to the futuristic Orbit City. Here, they met one of the most legendary families in TV history, The Jetsons. Viewers were given a glimpse at the charming possibilities of tomorrow, like floating buildings and flying cars, and some groovy inventions that actually exist today, like smartwatches, video chatting, and 3-D printing.

 Though the show only aired for one season, The Jetsons still remains an iconic symbol of our vision of a dreamlike future and the technology that comes along with it.    

Compared to the day we got to “Meet George Jetson,” technology has rapidly advanced and left its impact on our processes and business practices. Take the commercial real estate industry, for example – sure, our buildings don’t float, and we can’t fly to work, but advancements like digital signatures and “smart” buildings have transformed our interactions and business cycles.

Seven Tips for Efficient and Accurate Lease Abstracting

By Meredith Beasley | Lease Abstracting

When was the last time you built a puzzle? It may have been a rainy day or a long vacation, but no matter the occasion, we all start off the same – you open the box and dump the pieces out on the table. From there, we all employ our own building strategy. Some start with the corner pieces and build the frame, while others take the time to sort out all of the pieces by color or pattern. 

Lease abstracting is a lot like a puzzle. You start out with all the pieces – terms, rent schedules, options amendments and assignments – and get to work piecing together the final pretty picture, an organized portfolio. Just like building a puzzle, everyone has their own approach or strategy to abstracting, because leases come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes show up with a missing piece. 

No matter if you’re just learning how to abstract or are a seasoned expert, we wanted to share some of our favorite tips and tricks to get that “picture perfect” lease abstract.

Lead Nurturing with Quarem’s CRE Software

By Meredith Beasley | Lead Nurturing

Swiss Army Knife.

Instant Pot.

Smartphone. 

Three very different things, but they all share the same label: All-in-One. These multitools have very different uses, but they all promise a solution to several different needs. 

The Swiss Army knife takes care of any random challenge under the sun. Need to fillet a fish AND trim some rogue nose hairs? You got it! 

The Instant Pot makes dreams of filling your kitchen with different food prep gadgets a reality by combining them all into one small appliance. 

The debut of the Smartphone gave our shoulders some rest by merging all of those devices that we had to carry around individually. We could finally leave our bulky cameras and CDs at home. 

At the end of the day, all of these tools share the same goals: save time & money and improve processes in a convenient way. 

Have you ever wished there was a handy multi-tool that you could employ to help you nurture leads, manage market data and expand your corporate services? Well, commercial real estate management software is the all-in-one solution for you!
