Nancy Alert and Associates Lands Real Estate Deals with DocuSign eSignature Solution

DocuSign eSignature Service Helps Real Estate Pro to Quickly and Securely Close Deals for Globetrotting Clients

SEATTLE and WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 30, 2010 - DocuSign®, the leading provider of on-demand electronic signature solutions, today announced that Nancy Alert and Associates uses DocuSign to accelerate the signing process for real estate documents. DocuSign expedites the average turnaround of real estate documents from days to minutes—even for clients travelling overseas. Metro D.C.-based, Alert also leverages DocuSign's speed and security as a competitive differentiator in a quickly changing real estate market. 

After DocuSigning for the first time, Alert was hooked. Working with a buyer on business in Egypt, Alert was able to electronically send the documents for e-signature. Her client received a DocuSign email notification, quickly adopted a digital signature and signed the documents online in minutes, not days. The offer was the first received and accepted immediately by the seller. Using DocuSign to be the "first to the finish line" has proven successful for Alert and her clients—both locally and abroad giving Alert the competitive advantage of speed—even with overseas clients.

"DocuSign is fast and easy for my clients to use—eliminating faxing headaches and no more worries about safeguarding client information," said Alert. "I tell my clients not to worry. Within minutes, the documents are signed and returned. It's not unusual for me to close a great deal in hours with DocuSign—even on a Saturday night! DocuSign has it all—there's no turning back."

The DocuSign Advantage
After reviewing other e-signature solutions providers, Nancy Alert and Associates continues using DocuSign REALTOR® Edition based on the following key criteria:

  • Ease of Use—DocuSign makes it easy for Alert to send documents for client e-signature, and just as simple for clients to sign electronically from anywhere in the world. This intuitive service closely replicates the traditional signing experience, creating a positive client experience.
  • Compliance and Security—With DocuSign, Nancy Alert and Associates is assured of security as documents are an encrypted PDF. Signers are authenticated and contracts can only be returned only if fully completed, ensuring 100 percent compliance.
  • Real-Time Visibility—DocuSign reveals the signing status of every agreement in real-time: when it was opened, when it was signed, the time the transaction has taken, and which contracts remain to be signed. Alert knows immediately when a real estate document is completed so deals can be transacted faster in a highly competitive market.
  • Workflow Management—DocuSign automates Nancy Alert and Associates business processes. Alert can automatically route documents for approval in t he designated order and provide signed copies to others such as office coordinators, title and lenders. DocuSigned documents are returned only when complete, thereby reducing turnaround time from days to minutes.
