Electronic Signatures Explained
Menlo Atherton Realty is an all electronic signature brokerage utilizing the real estate industry standard docusign for realtors e-signature platform. This simple and convenient signature process allows you to sign real estate contracts and documentation from your phone, iPad or computer anywhere in the world.
The e-signature process cascades from signer one to signer two etc. This feature is actually quite useful, let me explain why. Typically there is one spouse who spearheads the documentation process and is first to sign documents. Just like when signing in person, with e-signatures the second signer gets to see an actual copy of the document already signed on each page by the first signer. The e-signature process gives the second signer the comfort and confidence that the first signer has seen and approved each page.
Additionally, it’s often difficult to physically get both signers in the same place at the same time. Using e-signatures buyers can be in different locations anywhere in the world and sign contract docs just as quickly as if they were sitting in the same room. This efficiency and flexibility saves us all a lot of time and effort which is part of what enables us to offer commission rebates.

As you will see, Docusign is partnered with the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors as well as many other real estate associations across the country. Please let us know if you have any questions about the e-signature process.
