For your safety and the safety of your staff, agents and families as we move forward into uncharted territory:

The Wisconsin Department of Insurance approved digital notarization for Wisconsin real property transactions in March.  We immediately got the wheels turning to get everything in place for third party providers approved by the industry to get us set up asap.   We are almost there - hopefully by the week of April 10 we will have the digital signing capability.  Watch for updates on this essential part of the settlement process.

As of now, we are still doing closings face to face.   To follow the most recent federal guidelines, we now require everyone to wear a face mask, which will be provided.  We will send all documents to clients for review prior to closing.  We will use Docusign whenever possible for documents that do NOT require notarization.  This process will expedite execution of all documents at closing, limiting exposure.  If a client is experiencing flu or cold-like symptoms, they will need to reschedule – we will be screening them and ask you to do so as well.   Our doors are locked and will remain so indefinitely. Only direct parties to the transaction can attend and we are allowing only 2 in at a time - NO CHILDREN.    Weather permitting, a Notary will meet the client at their vehicle for signature.  Clients need to call when they arrive so we can give them direction.   We are making arrangements for borrowers to sign with their loan officers and for exchange of documents and funds post-closing.   

That is it for now - More to come in the days ahead.
