Integrity All Stars of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties is adding cryptocurrency transactions to its toolkit.
The firm’s real estate team recently completed its certification in deals involving cryptocurrency and NFTs on the blockchain.
“As we start to see cryptocurrencies prevail within the real estate sector, it is essential to stay ahead of the market and be prepared for the shift to best serve our clientele,” Rebecca Rains, broker and owner of Integrity All Stars, said in a news release. “At the beginning of this year, Redfin’s survey reported that 12% of first-time homebuyers utilized cryptocurrency to buy their home. We are predicting this number is only going to continue to increase.”
Each sales executive on the team worked through the cryptocurrency education process offered by Propy, which said Integrity All Stars is the first real estate team in the nation to complete the certification.
The investment in that education is already paying off, Rains said.
“Since completing the certification, our team has already seen a substantial uptick in clients looking to buy and sell real estate via cryptocurrency,” Rains said. “Cryptocurrency and virtual transactions can streamline processes like we’ve never seen before, which is why this is a service we wanted to confidently offer.”
