Narrative Complete is an automated word processor that is designed for
real estate professionals. Whether you are a real estate appraiser, a real
estate broker, a real estate agent, an assessor, or any other real estate
professional, your product is real estate. The majority of your written
output revolves around real estate. It makes sense to use a word processor
that is designed around real estate. The big guys in word processing have
fantastic products - if graphics or marketing or publishing is your business.
But frankly, they do not help a lot when it comes to automating a real
estate professional's work.
Everyday Word Processing
Narrative Complete has what you need in a word processor, but we have eliminated
those things that just get in the way. Complete font control, headers and
footers, Table of Contents, etc. are included. Graphics, photographs, and
tables can be inserted into the document. Copy and paste from old documents
that you created in your present word processor. A PDF file of the document
with security can be created by Narrative Complete. We could go on for
a long time listing its many features. A few are listed to the right.
Like everything we do, Narrative Complete was written from scratch. It
is self-contained, and like Investment Analyst and Commercial Complete,
Narrative Complete is designed to work the way that you work.
- You do not need MS Word and you do not need to understand "macros".
- You do not need MS Excel and you do not need to understand "links"
or "worksheets" or "spreadsheets" or "connections".
- You do not need to assemble your reports in "sections".
- You do not need a special "PDF driver" to create a PDF file.
- You do not need to connect to the Internet, exposing confidential information.
Automated Narrative Appraisals
Commercial Listing Sheets
Whether you are preparing a simple letter, a full narrative appraisal,
a Summary Report, a prospectus, or a client proposal, you can do it in
Narrative Complete will make your work go more smoothly because it is designed
around your product - real estate. We took many of the powerful real estate
database capabilities of Commercial Complete and the reliable income analysis
power of Investment Analyst and incorporated them into Narrative Complete.
Use your own wording in your reports and other documents. Change it on
the fly when you need to, just like you do now. Design your narrative documents
once and then use them again and again. Just connect a new property record
and/or income analysis to the document and Narrative Complete takes care
of the rest.
Why You Should Consider
Standard word processing tools are designed for everyone. This also means
that they are designed for no one in particular. Narrative Complete is
designed for you, the real estate professional.
For a real estate professional, presentation is everything. Whether you
are a real estate appraiser who is presenting a commercial appraisal report
to a lender or a real estate broker who is presenting a listing proposal
to a potential client, what is put down on paper speaks volumes about you.
That is why you spend so much time getting your documents to look just right.
But real estate professionals also need the ability to insert detailed
property information and reports into their documents easily. It takes
too much time to reinvent the wheel for each assignment or proposal.
Narrative Complete helps in both critical areas - presentation and detail.
It was designed for you.
This is not form filling software or an MS Word Add-in. It is a complete word processing tool with a real estate database and
real estate income analysis capabilities built in. With Narrative Complete
you will be working with documents, just like you do now. You are in complete
control of how they will look, what fonts are used, what text is underlined
and bold-faced. New narratives do not have to be "re-assembled"
section by section. Just load the last narrative that you did that was
similar to your current assignment. Or load one of the "Power Documents"
that we have designed.
The list of features and ease of use alone is enough for you to abandon
your present word processor and form-filling modules. Narrative Complete
can be used for everyday document processing like writing letters, creating
invoices, etc. But Narrative Complete also has a special punch. It is designed
especially for those in real estate related professions. The features that
these professionals use in word processors are placed at their fingertips.
Whether you are a real estate appraiser, a real estate broker or other
real estate professional, the benefits of Narrative Complete are hard to
overstate. Real Estate appraisers can create full narrative appraisal reports
and Summary Reports with ease. Real estate brokers can prepare comprehensive
analyses that are a cut above the competition.
No more loading an old appraisal narrative into your word processor and then cutting and pasting, switching between Excel and Word and back again. Simply attach a new property record and income analysis to your last document.
Narrative Complete will be a welcome addition to your office.
Other Narrative Report Writers Fall Short
There are a few "narrative writing" tools out there. We have
looked at them. They are really form-filling programs connected to other
software products like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access.
Jump from spreadsheet to spreadsheet to fill in a series of blanks and
out comes a cookie-cutter report. Hard to understand and use, limited or
no analysis capability and limited customization options. It looks like
everything, including the kitchen sink, has been thrown in. But using these
products? Go to this spreadsheet for this, go to that spreadsheet for that.
Now you can load MS Word. Did you include all of the separate sections
that you need? Good Luck. It is easier to cut and paste from old documents.
These products cannot compare to what Narrative Complete offers.
One of the major problems in completing an assignment is that the data
needed usually comes in drips and drabs. A real estate agent is on vacation
or you are waiting for a plot plan from the owner. But you cannot wait
until all information is in before starting your analysis and beginning
your narrative. Remember that due date?
If you are using one of those other "narrative writing" tools or a customized document that you have linked to an Excel spreadsheet, you must go back and forth as information comes in. Fill in a part of the form or spreadsheet, then switch back to your narrative and continue writing. This is not necessary if you are using Narrative Complete. When a field in the document is clicked, a window is displayed that permits you to enter or change the value on the fly. Help for each field is also displayed so that you know exactly what information you are inserting in your document. See video.
A subset of Commercial Complete is incorporated into Narrative Complete.
This is a powerful real estate database that can be used for any property
type. Over 200 fields are available. In several of the fields, unlimited
text can be entered so that you can describe various property details completely
- e.g. Description, Area, and Neighboorhood. In addition 9 "notes"
fields are provided so that unlimited notes can be added for future reference. Field names can be customized to suit your particular requirements. For
example, the File Number field can be changed to the File Reference field
or the Tax Map No. field can be changed to the Lot and Block field.
All of these fields can be inserted directly into your Narrative Complete
Please see the Commercial Complete product for more detailed information.
Investment Analyst Basic

in Landscape so that each will easily fit on your page. Just click the
Reports button (See graphic on the left).
The ability to insert calculations, variables and full Analyst reports
will save you much time and effort. But Narrative Complete does more than
this. Your last document can be used as a "Power Document" for
your next report.
Just connect the last report to your current analysis and Narrative Complete
will update all of the numbers and reports. How great is that? No need
to cut, copy and paste for each new report.

A powerful real estate database, based upon the Commercial Complete engine, is incorporated into Narrative Complete. Any Commercial Complete
field or full report can be inserted anywhere in your document. The Property
Description field, the street address, the owner, previous sale price,
photographs, etc. More than 250 fields are available.
Client Information for Each Assignment
Additional Client Fields have been added just for Narrative Complete. Each
Assignment has eight dates so that you track the progress of a job.
Once you connect the property data to a client, Narrative Complete does
the rest. Either start a new document and insert the fields and reports
that are appropriate, or load a document that was created for a previous
assignment and Narrative Complete will update all of the fields in the
document for the current assignment. Values, Reports, etc. all will be
automatically changed to conform to the new property.
Many Company fields are available. Like the other fields mentioned above,
these fields can be inserted anywhere in your document. Fields like the
appraiser or broker name, his title and his certificate number only have
to be entered one time. From then on, just insert them in your documents
