Orlando, Fl – With the continued concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19), The Closing Agent has taken proactive measures to ensure its customers can close on their real estate transactions. As the uncertainty of the future level of exposure to the virus may create apprehension for buyers and seller, The Closing Agent offers its clients the option to complete their real estate transaction utilizing Remote Online Notary (RON) services.
Thanks to cutting-edge technology and the innovative minds at The Closing Agent, customers who would otherwise not be able or feel comfortable visiting a closing office to sign crucial documentation are able to accomplish these same tasks remotely. The Closing Agent utilizes a RON platform called Virtual Closing Solutions to facilitate a secure, vetted, end to end video solution.
On January 1, 2020, Florida authorized RON closings and Barry L. Miller, Esq., President & CEO of The Closing Agent, LLC, became the first person approved to conduct online notarizations in Florida and went on to conduct the first RON closing on January 7th, 2020. These advancements in the closing experience have suddenly become even more relevant. “The recent coronavirus outbreak has been alarming to watch,” Mr. Miller said. “While we are hopeful it will soon be brought under control, continuing to provide a quality service to our customers with minimal interruption is a paramount concern. The ability to perform Remote Online Notarized closings has been a game changer for our customers.”
With travel to and from certain countries restricted or suspended, traditional in-person closings may not be possible. “With this technology we are able to offer a complete end-to-end digital experience and are assisting many customers who would otherwise not have the option to complete their closing,” Mr. Miller continued. “At the end of this week for instance we have a seller in China who is unable to travel to the United States for his closing. We’ll be using remote notarization to arrange a power of attorney which will allow the sale to proceed as if the seller were physically present in our Orlando office. We have been very proud of setting the standard for remote closings this year and are here to provide an expert closing service to anyone who may be impacted by COVID-19.”
