Technology Should be Easy to Use and Save Time and Money for Tampa Bay Real Estate Agents. Docusign Does all of that and more.by: Brad Jenkins, BA Psy-ABS Licensed Real Estate Agent, Charles Rutenberg Realty Florida’s Most Trusted Real Estate Professional ”TM”
Like it or not, Tampa Bay real estate has become intertwined with technology and it appears they will continue to evolve together for the foreseeable future. I must admit, I am a technology geek. In my Tampa Bay real estate business I have my Ipad2, my Iphone and wireless internet access as well. I am the epitome of the technologically connected real estate agent in the Tampa Bay area. Now that does not mean that I jump at every new gadget or technology that comes along, far from it. It had better be good and more importantly be able to save me time and money.
In my opinion, the service from Docusign meets my criteria for investment in it. Docusign is a browser based document signing service that makes obtaining the signatures of my Tampa Bay, Florida real estate clients who might be in a location other then my presence very easy. The process is simple and it has a very short learning curve. The service accepts most forms of documents including all Microsoft and Adobe PDF products. Docusign can upload files from many sources including a hard drive, Dropbox or other cloud based storage site and on line forms as well.
Another great feature about Docusign is that you can have multiple singers for the same document. These signers can even be in different locations form each other. All they need is an email address to send the documents to and the rest is a piece of cake. I found the interface for the service to be clean and straight forward. I was up and running inside of 15 minutes at the most. I even tested their customer service just to see how responsive they were and I did it during my trial period. Simply put they were awesome. My hold time was under three minutes and the customer service rep was polite and courteous. The rep treated me just like I was a regular paying subscriber not one who was using the trial period.
In the end Docusign made working with my international and out of state real estate clients who purchased property in the Tampa Bay area go much smoother. Gone are the days of sending faxes, printing emails, scanning documents, jammed fax machines, busy signals and all of the other hassles that used to accompany remote transactions. Simple and easy, that is how technology should operate and Docusign is just that. I highly recommend it.
