Streamlining Real Estate Transactions with Jointly: The Jorgenson Group Success Story
We had a conversation with Aislyn Williams, Director of Operations, The Jorgenson Group, about why they chose Jointly and how it’s impacted the business.
In the fast-paced and dynamic world of real estate, having efficient and reliable tools is essential for success. The Jorgenson Group, a prominent real estate team based in Austin, Texas, recognized the need for a comprehensive deal management solution to streamline their operations and enhance their agents' productivity. They found their perfect partner in Jointly.
Jointly is a modern software platform for residential real estate professionals to manage deals, disclosures, and agreements. It uses intelligent workflows and data to speed the process while ensuring compliance. Jointly is fundamentally different from its competitors because it is built around the data, not the document.
Before adopting Jointly, the Jorgenson Group faced various challenges with their previous transaction management system. They originally tried to stick with the incumbent platform, and also looked at other platforms. But, each had its own issues—like data privacy concerns, contracts restarting with each new team member addition, and lack of customization options. Additionally, the team struggled with limited support and cumbersome processes that hindered their productivity.
So, though they wanted to leave, for a time they stayed the course. "So we were sticking with Dotloop." Williams says. "We did try DocuSign for a hot second and the only reason was because our market center said, we will no longer be accepting paperwork submission, starting on this date."
But they still weren't happy with it, so they kept their eyes open. And then along came Jointly, which was still a start up when they starting talking. As Jointly matured, it looked like it might be the answer.
In their pursuit of a more user-friendly, collaborative, and efficient system, the Jorgenson Group decided to explore Jointly as a potential solution. They were initially hesitant about trying yet another platform, but after meeting with the Jointly team and experiencing their dedication to understanding and addressing their unique needs, they were eager to give it a shot.
Jointly's implementation and onboarding process exceeded their expectations. The Jointly team worked closely with the Jorgenson Group to understand their workflows, preferences, and challenges. They were receptive to feedback and quickly implemented requested changes, making the transition to Jointly smooth and hassle-free.
The broader team did have some resistance early on, of course, having been through multiple platforms already. But Williams says the team was won over by the product. "Here was something new but I can say some of the most hesitant people over a year ago are our biggest advocates now. It's so easy to use it. It takes you almost no time at all."
