Is this the possible future of The Main Line Real Estate Office?

We recently visited Charleston, SC and were wandering down King Street when we came across this interesting shop.

Charleston Real estate store

Why is it interesting....check out the sign

Real estate studio

But look inside....

real estate store

pretty cool, several seating areas for customers to look at real estate right there and search the MLS, help on site if needed. also just the decor is soooo coooool!

Real estate studio

This screen had a video advert playing, and another had a video running about all the good things in and around Charleston, restaurants, golf etc.

there was enough screens for several customers to interact and private offices if needed, although it felt as if the spaces were far enough apart to give you the initial privacy for a quiet conversation.

This was one of three offices I believe the company had, the only one they had set up like this and it was on the main street of Charleston. Talking with the agent sitting at the "Concierge" desk she said they had many people come in to explore the cost of real estate in and around Charleston for retirement, or if they were considering selling.

Would this work on the main line outside of Philadelphia, I can think of a couple of places where it will work well West Chester, Bryn Mawr, Wayne or Chestnut Hill for example, downtown Philly on Chestnut or Walnut Street obviously. But what about your areas? Is this the future of real estate? Is this of interest to consumers? Let's hear what you think.

Nick... this is very interesting in deed.  I think this could work in many places... the question would be, would some people aka consumers, shy away, because this set up looks like for high end places. Hence why you had asked if this would work on the Main Line.  I definitely think an operation set up like this would work in that area. I love the concept.  thanks for sharing..

Personally, I loved the store, it felt relaxing, inviting and yes I understand your comment about high end. Talking with the concierge, she said it was aimed at the higher end properties in Charleston, although customers could look for any value property. It is all a matter of how inviting you make the design. If I had an office like this maybe I would not work from home so much.
