Docusign For Speed, Ease, And Security

Docusign Electronic SignatureDocuSign is the fastest, most secure way to sign, send, and store documents in the cloud.

Whether we are drafting a real estate contract, sending an addendum, or even preparing an agreement for services, we trust DocuSign, the most widely used eSignature. In fact, Docusign has the highest (and rare) ISO/IEC 27001 certification, meaning they are audited and held to the strictest standards for communications security.

With DocuSign, you can sign anytime, anywhere, on any Internet-enabled device.

How Docusign Works For People Selling A Home And Buying A Home

Another reason that we chose Docusign for all of our real estate contract needs is because it will be simple for our customers to understand.

There are 3 easy steps to signing a document, and our customers will receive them each time by email:

  1. An email is sent with a link to follow (using an internet browser). The first step is to simply select (click) that link.
  2. Simple instructions will show users how to agree to electronic services (free of charge of course), and then these instructions guide our customers smoothly through the signing process. For most contracts, it will take less than two minutes.
  3. The final step is the confirmation, indicating that our customer has completed signing. This step launches emails to both the signer, as well as our office to let us know it's completed.

The best part is there is no printing, no scanning, no faxing, no sending, nothing! Once the customer has e-signed the document, it is available immediately for us to further process.
