Nest Seekers International Now Attracts the Savviest, Most Sought-After Agents in the World with cloud-based services for real estate.
Challenge: Replacing Outdated Hardware
Nest Seekers is one of the most prominent upscale real estate brands in the world. Their modern, technology-based approach and “I go where the clients go” philosophy ranks them as a leading international brokerage.
It’s hard to imagine when they were struggling to support and retain their agents due to aging hardware. Nest Seekers needed to upgrade their equipment and change their operation to avoid losing sales reps to other brokerages offering superior technology. IT Vortex helped them do just that with cloud-based services for real estate.
With a growth mindset, Nest Seekers invested in a cloud-based infrastructure to quickly scale when they needed to.
Solution: Online, Managed IT Systems Help Agents Be More Mobile, Productive, and Competitive
With 3 offices and about 100 agents, IT Vortex began moving Nest Seekers’ business online. Initially, ITV shifted their in-office physical servers to virtual servers in the hosted cloud. They then added virtual desktops and a unified communication system.
Reliable systems connecting all locations allowed the company to scale efficiently, growing to 25 offices and 1000+ team members in 10 years. Nest Seekers minimized hardware, software, and IT costs and significantly improved security – all while moving into global markets with the ability to continue expanding.

“They took care of literally everything, from the moment we opened up this office, to set up all the computers, all the servers, all the virtual desktops, the TVs, everything right up to today. They’re available 24 hours a day.”
Ryan Serhant, top Nest Seekers agent and reality television star states, “One of the big things that we use is the Virtual Desktop System. Everything that is on our computers at the office is also on our computers and phones anywhere in the world. They enable us to move and do business at the speed that we need to, without having any setbacks.”
“Our business is a 24/7 Business. When we have clients who need something and they need it at midnight and a deal is riding on it, there’s no ‘Oh, I’ll get back to you in the morning when we get into the office’. It’s now. Without IT Vortex, we would not be able to survive. ”
