Westcor agent closes first remote online notarization transaction under new law in Minnesota.

Maitland, FL, February 7, 2019 — Westcor Land Title Insurance Company announces that its agent, Title One in Minnesota has great success with its first purchase transaction utilizing remote online notarization.

Westcor agent, Title One closed their first remote online purchase transaction in the state of Minnesota. Remote online notarization (RON) became legal in Minnesota on January 1, 2019.

Title One worked with Notarize to be the first title agent to close a purchase transaction with a remote online notary in the state of Minnesota. The remote online technology platform allowed buyers in California to close on their new property in Minnesota quickly and at their convenience.

“We are honored to have worked with our business partners Westcor, Redfin Mortgage, Notarize, and the home buyers to close the first remote online notary transaction in Minnesota! Online closings support Title One’s visionary approach of making the transaction an easy, comfortable and accurate experience for all parties involved. We believe remote online closings are the future. Customers are busy and there is tremendous value in being able to offer them, in partnership with a participating lender, the convenience of closing from anywhere they have an internet connection.”, said Dana Diesch, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Title One.

“The RON technology platform provides Westcor agents and their clients the best experience when closing real estate transactions online.” Said Scott Chandler, Chief Operating Officer, Westcor
