Notarize, a digital notary platform and 2018 HousingWire Tech100 winner, recently announced its integration with Title Resources a subsidiary company of Realogy, to expand online notarization for complete digital real estate transactions.
This partnership expands Notarize's online closing services to nearly 265 million Americans across 38 states and the District of Columbia. The new states include Michigan, New Mexico and Wisconsin, according to the company.
The integration directly embeds Title Resources’ existing tools into Notarize Mortgage API’s, providing lenders, independent title agents and customers access to Notarize for Mortgage and Notarize for Title Agents, the company said in a press release.
“The Title Resources management team has a deep understanding of the potential digitized real estate transactions hold,” said Adam Pase, Notarize co-founder and chief operations officer. “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Title Resources and Realogy to support their portfolio of services aimed at helping people buy and sell homes.”
Notarize’s platforms are available to all independent agents appointed with Title Resources. Agents can digitally walk clients through the closing package, create online closings for cash transactions and offer entirely online closing to buyers and sellers.
“Title Resources is pleased to support Notarize and remote online notarization efforts in all counties where we are licensed that will accept electronically recorded documents,” Title Resources CEO Scott McCall said. “By reducing paper, time and human error, and allowing customers to close anytime, anywhere, on their terms, we are empowering our agents to deliver an exceptional customer experience.”
Earlier this year, Notarize partnered with Westcor Land Title Insurance Company to bring fully digital mortgage closings to 16 states.
