Empowering Washington’s Top Retail Brokerage to Focus on More Important Things

Written By More Vang

If you want to lease commercial real estate, you have to make sure people know it’s available. The first step is displaying the leasing information in a prominent spot on or near the property. The logistics of designing, creating, and managing the installation of leasing signage can be time-consuming to say the least.

Rappaport is one of the largest retail real estate brokerage firms in the Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and Baltimore markets. They were managing this process manually and needed a way to streamline and scale the logistics of leasing signage ordering and installation. For years, their marketing team used a system of spreadsheets and emails to oversee the rapidly revolving door of vacant commercial properties.

“I don’t really know how we managed our signage needs before Banjo. It makes it incredibly easy and efficient for us to order new signs, get them installed quickly and accurately, and not have to worry about the logistical details.”

Vice President, Rappaport

With Banjo, More Vang’s proprietary automation platform,  those cumbersome and outdated logistics tools are a thing of the past.

Real estate property brokers and leasing representatives can now easily customize and order a variety of signage and manage the entire end-to-end process online. Even installation.

They simply select from a catalog of signage options, including in-ground and window signs, customize as needed, and place the order. And they can also arrange a site visit to have measurements taken beforehand.

For in-ground signage, Banjo lets the broker or representative set the installation address and precisely place the sign on a satellite map view of the location. They can even set the viewing angle of the signage for optimal exposure on the property.
