Real estate transactions go high-tech
RE/MAX Preferred Associates last week introduced its new state-of-the-art transaction network, “dotLoop,” designed to eliminate paper and speed real estate transactions among buyers, sellers, agents, appraisers and banks—regardless of location, according to a company spokesperson. Broker/owners John Mangas and Kathy Kuyoth hosted associates, guests and media in the roll out of this new technology.

The system allows clients to purchase local property with all of the modifications that accompany a real estate transaction without faxing or over-nighting documents – all from a mobile device. All of the information from the first step to completion is available through the online dotLoop transaction network.

The Toledo Board of Realtors has endorsed this platform as the standard for electronic real estate documents in this area. A standard platform for the market enables all realtors to work together efficiently and economically.


At the clubs
The Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce is raising funds for its annual Independence Day Celebration. The cost of fireworks has been increasing steadily by five percent per year so to keep the same quality show the chamber is selling patriotic stars for $1, $5, or $10 at local businesses during the month of June.

Purchasers can write their name on the star to show their support. All funds collected will go towards the 2013 fireworks show. Everyone who purchases a $10 star will have their name entered into a drawing for VIP seating during the fireworks. You can also make direct donations to the chamber office at 161 W. Water Street in Oak Harbor or call 419-898-0479.
