I like this blog as it is in line with my thoughts.  I do think we need to see the widespread adoption of web video chat and meetings and that is coming on strong.  Once we see that, commercial real estate offices will become smaller and smaller.

  A few weeks ago at the CAR Expo in Anaheim California, there were mentions of real estate offices in china that have about 300 agents in an office no bigger than 20 x 20 space. It would seem very hard to do if every single agent show up to office at the same time. In reality the agent does not have his/her desk space but would reserve the space for a certain time period, say for an hour to do the work or meet the client to finish signing the paperworks and clear up the desk for the next agent.

Are Real Estate Offices turning into Internet Cafes?

  This concept is highly efficient on not only on overhead cost but have agents constantly being out in the field. This mean no more water cooler conversations. No more agents idlely surfing the net or chatting with friends on the computers. The real estate Internet cafes is becoming more common in the Asian countries because of the way the contract is written and less law suits. Many agents have the capabilities to work outside of the office but interesting to see if this type of setting would work in the US.

I owned am executive suite 6+ years ago and saw the trend then....small room, DSL, cel phones AND conference/meeting space.  Some corporate employers required a PBX phone answering which would transfer to tenant's cel phone * I just downsized my real estate office by HALF and L♥VE it!
