Starting in 2018, Spacio is partnering with industry giant Howard Hanna Real Estate Services to revolutionize the age-old practice of open houses. While open house sign-ins have always been done on pen and paper, Howard Hanna intends to modernize that with their new Open 2 Close web and mobile app, powered by Spacio. Replacing paper sign-in sheets, this new app offers a digital solution that will automate every aspect of the open house lead capture and follow up process.

“During my twenties, I spent years working in real estate, hosting open houses every week to build my network”, said Melissa Kwan, Cofounder and CEO of Spacio. “I know a lot about the inefficiencies of paper lead capture and the opportunities that are lost due to simple things we can solve today, like unreadable handwriting. My cofounder and I started Spacio two years ago with a vision to streamline open houses with digital sign-in forms and help agents become more productive, especially when they are spending valuable weekend time away from their families in order to acquire more customers.”

The new app delivered via Open 2 Close will create an elevated experience for open house visitors and Howard Hanna agents. When a visitor enters an open house, agents will be able to make a memorable and professional first impression by offering digital registration, as opposed to other agents who just hand visitors a clipboard and pen to sign in. The app will also be integrated with a number of other solutions offered to Howard Hanna agents in order to provide an end-to-end lead capture, follow up and ongoing lead nurture experience across multiple tools.

“Our partnership with Spacio offers a new way for our agents to engage with clients and provide a better overall experience for open house visitors,” said Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV. “Open 2 Close will help us maximize our open house opportunities by upgrading the way we collect data for the digital age. Our agents can follow-up with every visitor and no one will slip through the cracks.”

“Spacio offers the industry-leading solution for paperless open houses, and we’re excited to offer this to Howard Hanna’s extensive network of agents through the Open 2 Close app,” said Kwan. “We aim to make the transition from paper to digital as seamless as possible by ensuring agents can instantly access Open 2 Close on all their devices via web and mobile app options.”

Nearly half of buyers in the United States consider open houses to be a source of valuable information during their home search. With Open 2 Close, open house visitor information will be captured accurately and privately. Once registered, visitors will be automatically sent additional property information to use at their discrepancy. The digitized registration also gives potential buyers a more professional, inviting and engaging experience overall.
