G Suite for Realtors
G Suite has become the go-to option for millions of businesses, but how can it help realtors to close deals? In addition to getting organized, staying in touch, working while on the move (essential for realtors), and having instant access to information and collaboration; Google’s Recommended for G Suite program also offers Docusign, maps, and other integrated apps that realtors will find essential in every aspect of their daily business
Docusign for G Suite
One of the biggest advantages is G Suite’s integration with Docusign, which can help to get documents signed faster and deals closed with ease, and with much less wasted time and travel.
Realtors can simply send an email to get documents signed by sellers, buyers, and other relevant parties. The people who receive those documents can easily sign them online without the need for a scanner, printer, paper, envelope, or mailing. The best part is that it is all secure, so you know your documents are in safe hands and far from prying eyes.
World Class Properties case study
Chris Lopez, Broker at World Class Properties shared his experiences with the integration in a blog post for Docusign:
“Once I started using DocuSign for Google, I was blown away by the experience. I no longer have to save a document, sign it on DocuSign, bring it back to my Gmail and then send it off anymore. The process of using DocuSign for Google is seamless. Every agreement and important document goes through my Gmail, and now I can access all of the DocuSign’s features directly from each email. I finish signing documents and they are automatically sent back to clients. All my completed documents are in my Google Drive and DocuSign accounts so I can access them whenever I need them.”
Lopez saves 8 hours per week by using Docusign. That is a lot of time to get the rest of his other work done or take a long lunch!

Google My Maps

If you leave the program set to on, those maps can be displayed on your public site for clients and potential clients to view.
