Our world is rapidly changing, and across America, people are finding themselves working at home or working in isolation, many for the first time. Fortunately for about half of all professional Realtors – 650,000 throughout North America – Tech Helpline remains ready and available to assist.

Tech Helpline is the real estate industry’s No. 1 tech support firm. Known for its top team of friendly and experienced analysts, agents and brokers can connect to Tech Helpline by phone, email, or online chat.

Challenges of Working Remotely

While many agents may be used to working remotely, others are finding themselves for the first time having to replicate all the capabilities they had at their office inside their homes. Some of the technology that agents may take for granted that is available at the office can create challenges to replicate remotely.

For example, few of us have fax machines today in our homes, yet some vendors or government agencies still rely on a fax. Tech Helpline can walk you through the alternatives available remotely to accomplish the same thing.

Agents who wait until they get to the office to do their printing may now have to print their contracts and flyers at home. Questions immediately arise from what printer do you buy to how do you connect your new printer to Bluetooth and print a document that’s stuck on your phone? Tech Helpline can help.

When agents are working in an office and have a software, computer, or a smartphone glitch, there often seems to be someone they can ask — a tech-savvy agent or admin. Now they can connect with Tech Helpline to get the same trouble-shooting advice directly from an expert who is part of a team that collectively has more than 300+ years of technology experience.
