An ability to sign bids and closing documents online will allow Realtors to respond to buyers and sellers in a more timely manner, as the National Association of Realtors (NAR) has announced a business alliance with DocuSign, the leading provider of on-demand electronic signature solutions. The relationship makes DocuSign the official and exclusive provider of ESIGN services for NAR’s 1.2 million members under the REALTOR Benefits Program, and is designed to provide unique offers to NAR members through its new “ESIGN Advantage Promotion for Realtors.”
“This unique value proposition will help Realtors, their clients and customers and the real estate business community use technology to their advantage,” said Bob Goldberg, senior vice president of marketing & business development, commercial services and business specialties for NAR. “We’ve selected DocuSign because they have demonstrated real value to our members and have already established themselves as a market leader in the real estate segment. We are very excited that DocuSign is offering members access to a customized service through the REALTOR Benefits Program.”
Safe and secure, the DocuSign e-signature process is also easy to use and legally compliant, Goldberg said. Rather than driving across town to get a signature or forcing their clients to find a fax machine, real estate professionals can use DocuSign to execute agreements with buyers and sellers electronically, eliminating the old process of printing, faxing, and waiting for the return fax. Realtors can speed up sales transactions, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge.
NAR’s REALTOR Benefits Program offers practical solutions for Realtors on the products and services they use every day. The program includes offerings from nearly 30 companies, in a variety of categories, recognized as leaders in their respective industries.
“Real estate has been one of DocuSign’s fastest-growing markets, and we will continue to deliver innovative valuable solutions that help real estate professionals be more productive and grow their businesses,” said Dave Thorpe, director of business development at DocuSign. “We are excited to make this special offer to the Realtors community and participate in NAR’s REALTOR Benefits Program. We view this endorsement as a testament to the value of DocuSign that America’s largest trade association has selected it as the exclusive e-signature solution under the REALTOR Benefits Program for its 1.2 million members.”
DocuSign will provide special pricing and offers to Realtors through the program and is currently offering a special promotion to Realtors through Dec. 31 to launch the relationship. The DocuSign ESIGN Advantage Promotion includes a special price on a unique version of DocuSign that includes not only all the capabilities of DocuSign for Real Estate Standard Edition, but also custom branding that will enable NAR members to tailor their account for a more personalized client experience, and will work with real estate forms applications including DocuSign’s integration with ZipForm 6.
