In Their Own Words: Brokerages Discuss SkySlope

| Topic: Digital Transaction Management

We get it. When searching for a Digital Transaction Management solution, you’re probably going to find that every potential solution claims to be the best.

And we’ll tell you that we’re the best too. But sometimes it helps to hear it from your peers. So rather than toot our own horn, we’ll let some of our partner brokerages do it for us.

Zephyr Real Estate

Zephyr Real Estate opened its doors in San Francisco in 1978 with the goal of providing exceptional care to every client. The brokerage’s efforts paid off considerably; today, Zephyr Real Estate is the number one property seller in San Francisco (handling 1 in 8 transactions). With six offices in San Francisco and two affiliate brokerages in Sonoma, Zephyr Real Estate is also the fastest growing company in Marin County. The brokerage is number 84 on RISMedia’s Top 1000 Power Broker list and number 87 on Real Trend’s Top 500. Boasting over 300 full-time agents (and some of the top producers in the country), Zephyr provides the highest level of training and support to maintain an unparalleled retention rate. In an effort to offer further support to agents, Zephyr adopted Digital Transaction Management with SkySlope, and they couldn’t be happier.

[SkySlope] was the easiest, best technology rollout that we’ve had to date. Our agents like that it’s easy to use and it requires very little training. We’re in a world where all applications should be talking with one another. We have a proprietary back-end financial system, which actually pulls the data from SkySlope every two hours. So our admins no longer have to do double data entry. It’s been a game-changer.

Pacific Union International

Pacific Union International was founded in 1975 by two California entrepreneurs. Fast-forward forty years, Pacific Union is now the number one independent real estate firm in San Francisco. Not one to rest on its laurels, Pacific Union decided to branch out into the Los Angeles market in early 2018. Three powerhouse brokerages (John Aaroe Group, Partners Trust, and Gibson International), came together under the Pacific Union banner, and now the brokerage is the number one independent market in Los Angeles according to Real Trends. By leading these two major markets, Pacific Union has become the fifth largest brokerage in the US by volume. Today Pacific Union is comprised of 51 offices, 1,700 real estate professionals, and boasts nearly $15 billion in sales last year alone.

What does Pacific Union attribute their unparalleled success to? Teamwork, trust, a love for the landscape, and innovative technology.

[SkySlope] came to each region, set us up, helped us with our checklists, uploaded our agents, whatever we needed. It’s been a win-win for everyone. You couldn’t ask for a better team… It’s a phenomenal partnership.

Alain Pinel Realtors

Alain Pinel Realtors (APR), located in San Francisco, is the sixth largest residential real estate firm in the United States and the largest privately-owned residential real estate company in California based on closed sales volume. Representing more homes worth over $1 million in the United States than any other, APR lists luxury homes to a vast audience of potential buyers and investors in over 50 countries through its global network. Number 6 on RISMedia’s Top 1000 Power Brokers and Number 7 on Real Trends Top 10 Largest Brokerages (by volume), APR attracts some of the best agents in the business (more than 1,400 across more than 30 Northern California offices). Who did APR turn to when they needed to implement a Digital Transaction Management solution? You guessed it: Skyslope.

There are times when agents are doing things in the wee hours of the morning, and I really don’t want to get a phone call. It’s amazing to come in at 7:30, 8:00 in the morning and know they were cared for [by SkySlope] the same way I would’ve cared for them.”

Escrow Administrator Franco Demarco agrees. “Every single time someone has talked to me about SkySlope support, they say it was great, quick and easy.”

While Zephyr, Pacific Union, and Alain Pinel Realtors are some of the country’s leading independent firms, SkySlope also works with industry giants such as eXp, Keller Williams, and Century 21, and smaller brokerages too (our partner Pollock Pine Realty up in the Sierra Nevada mountains has less than five agents).
