Lenders and title agents will leverage Notarize platform to
optimize the closing experience for customers

Notarize, the first digital platform to legally notarize documents
online, and Title Resources, a leading title insurance underwriter
serving independent title agents throughout the United States, today
announced a partnership to expand online notarization for real estate
transactions. Together the companies will enable lenders, independent
title agents and customers to benefit from fully digital online closings
utilizing Notarize platform offerings: Notarize for Mortgage and
Notarize for Title Agents. With this announcement, online closings
through Notarize are now available to nearly 265 million Americans
across 38 states and the District of Columbia, including several new
states such as Michigan, New Mexico and Wisconsin.

"Title Resources is pleased to support Notarize and remote online
notarization efforts in all counties (and states) where we are licensed
that will accept electronically recorded documents," said Scott McCall,
CEO of Title Resources. "Understanding the value technology can bring to
all participants of a real estate transaction, our organization has
prioritized investing in technologies like Notarize that streamline
complex processes and deliver newfound convenience. 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."

Notarize created its real estate platform with Notarize for Mortgage,
the first solution to enable lenders to conduct mortgage closings
entirely online. Recognizing the integral role of the title agent, which
is required to buy or sell a home, Notarize expanded the platform to
include Notarize for Title Agents to enable title agents of all sizes to
serve buyers and sellers online. With access to the platform, Title
Resources agents now have the ability to:

  • Offer an entirely online closing to buyers and sellers. Zero paper.
    Zero travel.
  • Create online closings for things like all cash transactions, when
    only seller documents are needed to be executed online, or trailing
    documents.
  • Walk clients through the closing package online, or have Notarize do
    so.
  • Give the OK to Close, authorizing clients to execute the closing
    package with a Notarize notary.
  • Reduce errors and ensure proper execution, putting an end to missing
    signatures.
  • Save money and provide better service, accelerating every aspect of
    the closing.
  • Eliminate printing, driving and shipping fees.
  • Integrate Title Resources' existing tools with the Notarize Mortgage
    API.

"The Title Resources management team has a deep understanding of the
potential digitized real estate transactions hold," said Adam Pase,
Co-Founder & COO of Notarize. "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."

The Notarize platform is available effective immediately for all
independent agents appointed with Title Resources and for all
transaction types, including purchase, refinance, HELOCs, and all cash
transactions. Title Resources' Agents will be expected to follow agent
guidelines related to Remote Online Notarization transactions to assure
the transaction was closed properly. To learn more or to join the
