"The real estate market is very fast paced and rapidly evolving with newly
available technologies," said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager,

be fast, efficient and economical while maintaining high levels of service
quality. We developed the Real Estate Online Portal to help agents excel,

Sherri Noel, team leader and listing specialist, The Noel Team for Keller
Williams Realty, Inc., has experienced the benefits of using Epson products in
her business. "Our business is hectic and stressful - lots of situations come
up where fires need to be put out immediately. We use technology to respond to
everything and the Epson WorkForce Pro printers work so well. They're durable
and I can always count on them. And with Epson Connect, rather than waiting to
get back to the office, I'm able to print contracts and emailsfrom anywhere -
even my car. I don't have to sit and wait for 100-page contracts to print out.
I can just keep the work flow going and make sure I have enough time for my
customers."
