Ty Warner, of the famous toy empire, once said “Even perfection has room for improvement.” While I would never feel comfortable saying we are perfect, I have a similar respect for the importance of improvement. That is why we are excited to introduce some exciting improvements to the Brevitas platform that add additional efficiency and simplicity to real estate due diligence.
We knew Brevitas was a useful tool because of the way in which it increases transactional efficiency. Members can send confidentiality agreements and communicate with each other at the click of a button. They can meet investors and sellers that exist far outside of their network in ways that they never could have before. The ability to source new business partners and transact with them so quickly is a very powerful tool, but one we knew we could improve. What happens once they connect? They begin sending a flurry of documents back and forth.
So we built a document lockbox. A place on Brevitas where our members could securely interact with each other individually and exchange documents. This virtual deal room holds every real estate due diligence document, enabling you to track every document you have sent in a place far more secure than your mail client. At Brevitas, we aim to assist you along the entire process to save you valuable time… and money.
While adding new and useful features will always be a primary focus for our development team, it is important to me that we are always looking at ways to improve what we have already built. This is a daily exercise and a challenging one as well. Examining the work you have done in the past with a completely fresh perspective is a perplexing challenge and one that I take tackling very seriously. This is why we revamped our listings page for sellers.
The My Listings pages worked well before. Members who were selling assets could scroll through their assets and make changes, but we saw that the functionality could be improved. The My Listings page now better reflects the rest of the platform with an interactive map anchoring the page, the member’s assets listed on the left, and all of their deal flow statistics are located on the right side. The purpose Brevitas serves is to take every challenge that someone selling a real estate asset faces, find the ones that can be eliminated, and eliminate them. This means having an amazing interface that allows you to effortlessly see the status of every asset you are working with and how it’s performing in the marketplace.
Continued improvement of the platform – be it the addition of crucial, new features or improving what we’ve already built – is one of our top priorities. Our goal is, and always has been, improving the process of buying and selling private commercial real estate assets. We aim to continually add efficiency for our members.
