SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2014) - McGuire Real Estate, an integral part of San Francisco bay area real estate since 1919, has chosen Closing Time (closingti.me) to deliver the best experience to their buyers by helping them manage the dozens of tasks and deliverables of the home buying process. Buyers who work with a McGuire agent will be invited to a personalized, customized plan toward closing that takes into account their specific property transaction and financial situation.
"It's no surprise that San Francisco's longest standing brokerage is consistently one of the first to adopt technologies to deliver a better experience to their buyers," commented Jonathan Aizen, founder and chief executive of Amitree, the makers of Closing Time. "McGuire's is now going a step further in providing Closing Time to guide their buyers through the most stressful part of the home buying process."
When buyers with a McGuire agent are invited to Closing Time, they'll get a custom plan that itemizes tasks like scheduling inspections, getting their financial documents in order, and getting homeowners insurance. Buyers can also answer questions and provide more information to Closing Time to make their plan more accurate and helpful.
"We've always been on the cutting edge of technology to make the buying and selling process easier and more accountable, having been the first in the bay area to offer full online transaction management company-wide," said Alex Buehlmann, Chief Operating Officer at McGuire. "We see integrating with Closing Time now as the next step in delivering impeccable customer service to our buyers."
Closing Time, which recently launched nationwide, generates tasks and deliverables for buyers based on the specific processes and customs for each state, as well as the buyer's personal situation and finances. McGuire has customized the experience even further for their buyers, baking its nearly 100 years of experience in the San Francisco market into the product.
