Stewart Expands its Commitment to eClosing Convenience in 12 states
Closings completed in 15 minutes or less in some cases
HOUSTON (February 28, 2018) – Stewart continues to expand its commitment to the real estate services industry in bringing eClosing convenience to market. Since achieving the first fully digital online closing last year, Stewart has further enabled consumers to execute notarized documents via web portals from the convenience of their home, office or even when traveling internationally. Strategic partnerships with more than a half-dozen vendors are already in place to help make this commitment a reality – and Stewart will continue to expand its vendor network in 2018.
Established, strong partnerships and technology integrations uniquely positions Stewart to support digital closings with electronic consumer and notary signatures, as well as remote online notarization of required lender and settlement documents. In more than a dozen states where Stewart has implemented these technologies, consumers can review and acknowledge documents in advance, speeding up the in-office signature process to allow closings to be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
“Stewart prioritizes an exceptional settlement experience and realizes our realtor, lender partners, and consumers expect the same convenience, and efficiency they enjoy in other areas of their lives,” said Chief Information Officer Brad Rable. “We continue to provide innovative tools and a modernized eClosing experience across our network of direct retail operations, agency and lender partners, helping lead their respective local markets with new, more convenient closing options for customers.”
