Notarize Announces Partnership with FAN as the First in the Country to Use Notarize’s Award-Winning Tools to Perform Their Own Online Closings

November 20, 2019

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 20, 2019--

Notarize, the first company to enable an entirely online mortgage closing process, today announces a new partnership with Florida Agency Network, a conglomerate of independent title agencies, settlement service providers, and innovative technology companies within the State of Florida, to empower its network of title companies and notaries to use the Notarize platform to perform their own fully digital closings.

The partnership was announced on stage in front of 300 attendees at Notarize’s conference, Rewired, in Miami this week.

“Today we couldn’t be more excited to announce that Florida Agency Network will be the first company to leverage what we’ve built at Notarize, and perform their own closings on our platform,” said Notarize Founder and CEO Pat Kinsel. “The real estate industry is ultimately local, and while many title agents love having Notarize handle the closing, we’ve heard that many others want to use our technology to deliver a better closing experience in their market. After four years perfecting our craft, we’re ready to empower these agents on our platform. What the industry has been asking for over the last four years, today, is becoming a reality.”

Aaron Davis, the CEO of Florida Agency Network says that from Day One, he envisioned that the future of working with Notarize would grow to create this partnership.

“We completed the first online closing in the state of Florida in 2018, and have done hundreds with Notarize since,” said Davis. “By being the first partner to work with Notarize on a platform to help our agents use this technology to perform their own closings, we’re changing the title industry, and the way that our agents serve customers. We’ve seen first-hand the impact Notarize has had on the real estate industry, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the next chapter.”

Making the announcement at Rewired, the fastest-growing real estate conference, hundreds witnessed the formation of one of the most groundbreaking partnerships in the title industry. With sponsors that included FormFree, Westcor Land Title Insurance Company, Falcon Capital Advisors, and Adeptive Software, Notarize closes out the year having created a community reimagining the future of real estate.

In the last six weeks alone, Notarize announced a partnership with Dropbox, Ellie Mae, Florida Agency Network, and that it had surpassed eight billion dollars in real estate closings in the last 18 months.

After an initial period with Florida Agency Network, Notarize will open the platform to other interested title companies beginning in 2020. Notarize will also be expanding its newly launched Title Academy to help title agents perform online closings with the same accuracy and success as Notarize’s internal team.
