Getting your clients to the closing table should be routine business—if only it were that simple. After all, each transaction can introduce unique challenges. Plus, there are many important and overlapping details to manage simultaneously.
For brokers and agents, it makes good business sense to use tools designed to simplify and streamline the process, especially when those tools are specifically developed for real estate professionals and are available at preferred pricing to members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). That’s exactly what you get when you turn to transaction management products offered through the REALTOR Benefits® Program.
DocuSign, NAR’s official and exclusive provider of electronic signature services, offers industry-leading technology and security in an easy-to-use system that can be accessed anywhere, at any time. It’s a great tool for busy agents who are constantly on the go. The top benefits include less time on administration, cost savings by eliminating paper and attracting and retaining top-performing agents.
Matthew Rathbun, EVP with Coldwell Banker Elite, recognized the problems caused by the paper-heavy workflow that used to dominate his brokerage’s nine office locations. “Using DocuSign has made it a lot easier to submit paperwork correctly and on time,” says Rathbun. Many brokerages are finding that DocuSign has revolutionized the way they do business, impressing both clients and agents with the speed and efficiency of the platform’s automated processes.
DocuSign services offered via NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Program include special pricing for:
- DocuSign for REALTORS® eSignature – No matter which payment option you select, you’ll save over non-members and receive unlimited signing/envelopes and exclusive REALTOR®-logo branding.
- DocuSign for Brokers – Created for offices and teams of 10 or more, this version lets you define and optimize the way transactions are managed across your business while empowering agents with true work-from-anywhere mobility.
