This Week at Notarize Episode #9: Why You Should Care About MISMO's Standards on Remote Online Notarization

Last week was a special episode of "This Week at Notarize" where we talked about our partnership with Guaranteed Rate: one of the largest lenders in the country. If you missed the news, you can read coverage on TechCrunch, The Title Report, Inman, HousingWire or the National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

Yeah, it was a big day.

While it's tough to match last week's announcement, this week we're back with a new episode of the show. Recently, the Mortgage Industry Standard Maintenance Organization (MISMO) published a new set of industry standards around remote online notarization. This is important for a few reasons, but the biggest, is there is now standards and guidance for the entire real estate finance industry around using remote online notarization for executing digital mortgages. Or, in simpler terms: best practices for helping people close on their homes online.

This Week at Notarize Episode #6: Why We Decided to put on a Real Estate Conference

Have you ever been to an event you loved? That really made the price tag worth it? Every company thinks about events, whether they're putting one on themselves or building a schedule of conferences to send their employees to. That's why I was excited to interview Courtney Margossian, who runs events here at Notarize.

In the newest episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize – we talk about our conference, Rewired, and why we decided to put on a one-day event on the future of real estate.

This Week at Notarize Episode #5: Defining Culture in Your Company

We're back with a new episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize! This week we're talking about culture. So much of the success of any company comes down to how connected employees are to each other, and the mission they're rallied around. What many companies get wrong, is they believe that culture is a fixed idea, and what you have some semblance of it, that it never changes.

That's why I was excited to interview Jasmeet Arora and Kevin Fanning, who are both heavily active in helping us define our culture here at Notarize.

We're back with a new episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize. This week, we're talking about open source technology. The truth is, Notarize wouldn't be around from a technology standpoint if we didn't take advantage of open source projects in the community. They've helped our product reach millions of people safely and securely. 

That's why I was excited to interview Eric Butler, who just recently published an open source project here at Notarize, and is part of the engineering team. This episode is all about being a part of a community that makes software, and technology more broadly, better for the world.
