Kicking the Real Estate File Cabinet to the Curb

It's the 21st century and it seems like everything is going digital. Blockbusters became Netflix, record stores became iTunes, postal mail became email, real estate transaction paperwork became... hmm, well I suppose a lot of people aren't sure about that one yet.

Most real estate offices still keep transaction paperwork as hard copies in file cabinets with elaborate and confusing systems that organize the whole process. It's a headache.

That all too familiar file cabinet was invented by Edwin G. Seibels over 100 years ago. At the time, it was hailed as a record-keeping revolution. People couldn't be more excited to get their hands on one of them.

Now ask yourself this: When is the last time anyone looked at their file cabinet with excitement?

The Internet is here and the days of paper are numbered. Guarantee Real Estate's Flex Office has embraced the digital age and taken our real estate transactions online. Here are just a few reasons why...


Going paperless allows us to access our documents anytime, anywhere. No more running to the deep dark file storage basement to grab that old file or running back and forth to the office to manage paperwork. Our agents are always prepared with everything they need.


Our new system has opened up a whole new world of organization. We’re able to easily and precisely track the progress of every transaction we are working on. This means that nothing slips through the cracks, ever.


Having all our documents stored online has meant efficiency and cost savings for everyone. Of course we don't have to worry about all the paper, copying, and storage costs anymore - but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Every trip to the office saved or organizational mess averted means more time for our agents to be with their clients. This means better service and a better experience for everyone.

We couldn't be happier with our paperless workflow at the Flex Office. Leave the file cabinets to the Smithsonian (yes, they do have one of the first).
