SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The mortgage division of HomeStreet Bank successfully completed their first, fully digital closing on October 13, becoming one of the first banks in the country to do so. Using the digital signing solution and Remote Online Notarization (RON) capabilities from Snapdocs, HomeStreet provides customers a highly efficient and convenient path to home ownership.
“We're excited to partner with HomeStreet Bank, a lender already synonymous with providing exceptional service, to help them become one of the nation’s first mortgage lenders providing a fully digital closing experience for their borrowers,” said Vishal Rana, Vice President of Customer Success at Snapdocs.
Rana added, “With Snapdocs’ eClosing technology, HomeStreet Bank offers their borrowers the ability to close on their home quickly and without errors--from anywhere in the world. The benefits of a RON closing extend beyond ease-of-use: borrowers take comfort that Snapdocs industry-backed RON standards ensure a high level of security that’s superior to its ink-on-paper alternative,” he said.
Universal demand for RON is increasing as it rids the barrier of pen and paper along with physical presence to complete the signing process historically required to obtain a notarized document.
“We’re driven at HomeStreet to enrich the lives of our customers by providing services and solutions that make their lives easier,” said Mark K. Mason, President, CEO and Chairman of HomeStreet Bank. “A fully digital closing option for our mortgage customers helps streamline the process of home buying and puts time back on their calendars,” he added.
“We’re proud to be trailblazers in the industry while bringing advanced technology to today’s banking platforms,” Mason said.
