Nest Seekers International Now Attracts the Savviest, Most Sought-After Agents in the World
Challenge: Outdated Hardware in Need of Replacement
Nest Seekers is one of the most famous upscale real estate brands in the world. Their modern, technology-based approach and “I go where the clients go” philosophy, has ranked them one of the most prominent international brokerages.
It’s hard to imagine the days when their hardware was aging and they were struggling to support and retain their agents. They needed to upgrade their equipment and change the way they were operating to avoid losing sales reps to other brokerages offering superior technology. IT Vortex helped them do just that.
With a growth mindset, Nest Seekers decided to invest in a cloud-based infrastructure so they could quickly scale when the need arose. And it did!
Solution: Online, Managed IT Systems Help Agents to Be More Mobile, Productive, and Competitive
With three offices and about 100 agents in place, Nest Seekers engaged IT Vortex to begin moving their business online. Initially, they shifted their in-office physical servers to virtual servers in the hosted cloud. Then they 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. They 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 Seeker 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. ”
