Guest Post by Margaret Woda: My First Authentisign Transaction Was Very Easy

Authentisign is now offered by my company (Long & Foster, Crofton MD) and MRIS (the regional MLS), so I decided to get off the fence and give it a try last night.  It was so easy!

A rental application had already been accepted by my client, the landlord, so I prepared the lease for signature.  All parties are local, but they have crazy schedules, so it seemed like this might be the perfect opportunity to try out my latest tech “discovery” – digital signature.

Since Authentisign is integrated with the forms program for my company, I simply clicked “initiate e-sign” after the form was complete. (It can also be used with PDF and word documents.)  The instructions were very clear, so I just followed them step by step.  The final step was to send the document to the parties.

By the time I got home from the office, both tenants had already signed, and then I received the final completed lease this morning after the landlord signed.  Now I can print the document or simply save it to a digital file.  Besides the convenience, the best part may be that everyone will have a readable copy that hasn’t been dimmed by several generations of faxing or printing of scanned documents.

Authentisign was easy for everyone, and I encourage anyone else who hasn’t yet used digital signatures in their real estate business to give it a try.

    Ms. Woda, that is a great story to share! Thanks. We're very happy with the rollout because customers like you tell us the "bottom line" benefits and advantages products like this bring to the marketplace. If you have any suggestions, please let us know. We listen very carefully for any improvements to help you earn more every day. John

    How does it compare to Docusign and how much is this yearly. Is there a free trial period?

    • MRIS_Adam says:

      Lavina, the functionality of Authentisign is very similar. Authentisign uses a 5 step wizard to import and deliver documents. The other electronic signature products function slightly differently. The results are exactly the same; signed documents without any travel time! Authentisign is available to MRIS customers for only $69/yr. There is not a trial period, however, at this price everyone should feel comfortable trying it out for a year. Nowadays, $69 is what many real estate professionals spend at the gas pump every time they full up! So, try it out you'll be happy you did.

    We need to know if Authentisign will be incorporated with our ZIPFORM6 that GCAAR provides for members. Do we know that these systems will work together. For independent brokers who do not have internal systems other than ZIP FORM, we need a seemless application that allows us to send docs and receive signatures quickly and easily. Thanks for the great work that you are doing on behalf of Realtors in our area.

      Dick,
      Authentisign is compatible with any forms program that produces pdf and word documents. Just import the document, apply the signature/initial lines, and email it your clients. Authentisign is very easy to use and will save real estate professionals time and money.
