Hot Topic: In-Person Electronic Notarization With Brendon Weiss And Amy Moses
This is Jack. Everybody, buckle up your seat belts. Hopefully, this will be an exciting episode. As always, this show is created by mortgage professionals for mortgage professionals, and we are ever so grateful to have you as our audience. Our commitment is to bring you timely information that you can read anytime and anywhere. In our Hot Topic, we have a pre-recorded session with Brendon Weiss, Cofounder of EscrowTab, and Amy Moses, Vice President of Marketing and Communication at EscrowTab.
I’m joining David to discuss a fairly new company called EscrowTab they started. Find out what EscrowTab is bringing to the market that lenders and title agencies haven’t experienced yet. Stay tuned as we near the Hot Topic. I like to take a moment to thank our sponsors, Finastra Fusion Mortgagebot. Experience the power of that fully integrated approach to mortgage lending that simplifies the borrowing experience and streamlines the process for employees. Also, FormFree, Lender Toolkit, and Snapdocs digitize your mortgage closings to offer a better experience for your closing team, settlement partners and borrowers.
There is Total Expert who turns customer insights into actions to increase loyalty and drive growth for bankers, lenders, credit unions, and other financial services firms. David Lykken is in Nashville for Total Expert’s Annual Accelerate ‘22 Conference. The focus of that is going to be the retention of top-performing loan officers. That’s a subject that would be of interest to almost everyone on this show. Also, we wish to thank SimpleNexus and the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, Lenders One, The Mortgage Collaborative, SuccessKit, Knowledge Coop, Mobility MMI, Modex, Mortgage Advisor Tools, and DW Consulting with Debbie Wemyss.
Finally, a special thank you to Adam, Les, Matt, Alice, and Allen for their contributions each week to the show. I’m excited to have back on the microphone a couple of friends, and they’re talking about something very important. It’s all about where we are going as an industry and what is the latest technology that can enable us to move faster in this process of mortgage lending. Joining me is Amy Moses, the Senior Marketing Director, also Brendon Weiss, who is Cofounder of EscrowTab. It’s good to have both of you with us. I appreciate you being here.
Thank you for having us. David. It’s a pleasure to be with you.
Amy, we’ve known each other for a long time. You introduced me to Brendon when you guys were together at MERS. You were so excited about Brendon as a leader of that company. You’ve been working with us, so talk a little bit about that.
Thanks, David. I was at MERS for probably about 6 or 7 years when Brendon came on board as the COO. He was tasked with relaunching the MERS’ eRegistry. That was very exciting for me because of my background in both training and marketing to be able to work on this fun new challenge. At MERS, we didn’t have anything to sell with the MERS’ eRegistry. We had to do a lot of education in the industry to educate everyone about eNotes and eMortgages to get the entire ecosystem on board.
That was a fun challenge that Brendon and I paired up on for several years. When he co-founded EscrowTab and asked me to come over and join him as the vice president of marketing, I was very excited about the opportunity because I knew it was another challenge where we could work together to make a difference in our industry.
What is the vision, Brendon, with your company? What you’re about? I love to get an understanding of that EscrowTab.
It’s great to be here, David. As you mentioned earlier, I was at Intercontinental Exchange and worked at New York Stock Exchange for years, all very heavy technology companies that are moving fully automated processes in microseconds of time. When I had the opportunity to go to MERS and be the Chief Operating Officer there, my boss said, “Go figure out the digital mortgage.” That was an exciting opportunity for me for a lot of different reasons.
MERS was an industry utility at that time gave me the ability to absorb all this great information that is externally members of the MERS, but also the great employees of MERS could teach me all that I needed to learn about the market structure of mortgage and digital mortgage. EscrowTab is the leading IPEN solution. IPEN is In-Person Electronic Notarization. It’s something that the laws have been on the books across the United States for a good amount of time, over fifteen years in most cases.
It’s taken a while for someone to build the technology in a way that would be intuitive for everyone involved. That’s always a challenge for whatever industry you’re in, but you have to get it right, not for lenders and title companies, and title companies are our main focus, but also the notaries that are out in the field and using this technology and meeting with the borrowers. You need to have something that’s going to be super intuitive and a natural product for borrowers and notaries as they sit at a table together and perform that final piece of the transaction.
I love one of the signatures. Amy is all about driving results through engagement and enjoyment. I enjoy the two of you, your relationship, and how you work so well together. It’s one of those great partnerships you see in the industry. We see that you have started anticipating some great results. Let’s start talking about what EscrowTab is about. It’s a fairly new company. What does it do, how did it get started, and what are each of your roles, if you can go into that?
EscrowTab is the leading IPEN solution, which is In-Person Electronic Notarization. That is something that has been around on the books of every state for, in many cases, many years and hasn’t been leveraged because it’s hard to get both the technology and the software side to align with the hardware sign to create something intuitive and useful within the industry. EscrowTab was started around the focus of how we get people moving forward with eClosing but mirroring the exact same process that has been tested over the course of the last 200 years. Obviously, this is a very legal process. People are very used to it, but if we can apply technology to that process, we have a good shot of being successful. That’s what we set out to accomplish.EscrowTab is the leading IPEN solution, which is in-person electronic notarization. Click To Tweet
Amy, what you saw as the opportunity when you heard about it? You have been very instrumental in getting eMortgages up and running at MERS, and you’ve always been a champion of that. What did you see that stood out here to you?
David, it was this unique opportunity to compete in the blue ocean instead of the red ocean.
Expound on that a little bit. I understand the concept, but for those that might not, explain that.
One of my favorite books is the Blue Ocean. There are a lot of companies that are doing the same thing. When there are companies providing the same service or the same product, they’re competing in the red ocean, where it gets bloody because you’re competing for the same customers with the same product or service. I saw this as a blue ocean idea where we are providing something very different to the industry that nobody else was providing.
I knew how excited Brendon was about it. I caught on to that enthusiasm and wanted to provide that blue ocean product because we didn’t see a lot of people working together to bring IPEN to lenders, titles, and notaries. I have spent 20 years of my career on the lender side, 10 years working for a lender, and 10 years working with lenders. It’s exciting, too, now to dive into the title settlement and notary space and see how they can work with lenders to create this change in our industry.
The vision is there. What I love is the concept that you have taken something that we’re all familiar with, the pen and the paper, and you have a new acronym, IPEN. You are bringing the two together. It is going to be intuitive, yet, it’s maintaining the technology component that’s something we have not seen before. Go into that a little bit more, Brendon. What does this experience look when someone’s using IPEN?
The experience is to maintain as much of the existing process as possible. We saw a lot of technology providers going to lenders and expecting lenders to push that technology out to the title and over to the signing agents. What we have taken this new approach with is to take that burden off the shoulders of the lenders themselves and allow them to send docs off wherever those docs might be coming from to the title companies like they do now and let those title unsettlement companies manage the process they do now. The title company will then load documents into both the title docs with the lender docs into EscrowTab.
We run them through our doc preparation functionality, which is about identifying where those signatures and initial locations are and any other fields they want to have included in it and then assigning it to that signing agent. Once assigned to the signing agent, they now have a tablet with the Bluetooth pen that we use specific tablets for that operates the software. That notary signing agent is then able to log into their profile in the morning. They see what loans have been assigned to them, and they’re able to go out into the field, meet with that borrower, and have as much of that document electronically signed as possible.
That includes all the notarized documents. If the lender is set up with MERS to do eNotes, then we create that MISMO Smart Doc eNote for the lender in our system. Once it’s signed, we auto-register it with MERS, and we’ll transfer it to their counterparty for them. It takes that lift off the shoulders of the lenders and allows them to move in the direction they’ve always wanted to do without creating internal committees and going out and procuring a lot of other technology. They can rely on the vendors that they’ve trusted for a long time to do this for them.
Is it a special tablet, or can I use my iPad? Do they have to go out and acquire another tablet that is specific to you?
It is not specific to us. We use Microsoft Surface Pro as we’re launching into the iOS store. We are using an Apple iPad Pro, but these are devices that could be purchased off the shelf. Of course, we have deep relationships with both Microsoft and Apple, so we’re able to help those signing agents and federal companies get enabled at a better price point, frankly. That is the only thing that is required. As we went to the National Notary Association Conference and met with hundreds of notaries, the fact that a tablet is about $1,000 does not concern them at all because they see all that value they’re getting primarily through not having to race back to the FedEx office and ship everything back to the lender but then their time management.
They know there are often issues in the mortgage industry where, at the last minute, someone realizes that the wrong document was sent or they need an updated package and route that signing agent back to find a place to print off that documentation. Number one, it’s not very secure. Number two, it takes a lot more time. Through EscrowTab, those documents can be updated as the notary is on their way to meet with that borrower. That makes everyone’s life more efficient and preserves their time, which is the most important piece for all of us.
David, I have to add. When we were at that National Notary Association Conference and presented two workshops there, we demoed how the software works and explained IPEN. When some of these features that Brendon mentioned were well discussed, there was cheering and clapping in the room. I’d never seen anything like it. We would discuss the feature, “You made an error right here. You can erase this page,” and cheer. “No rushing to the FedEx,” there’s clapping and screaming. They were so excited about these changes to help build efficiencies in their business. It was all authentic, organic, and so refreshing.
We’re looking at a market where interest rates have risen. We’re looking at locks expiring and time, where people are stressed. I’m thinking about my brother who bought a new home and closed on it. The builder got the house finished literally within five minutes of the lock expiration. They had to go in, and there was a document change. It’s like, “Are you kidding me? Could this get any more stressful?” It’s not going to take out all the stress, but it certainly is going to go a long way to mitigate some of those last-minute changes and all the hassles that go with it. You talk about title companies. I want to talk about driving the process of implementing eMortgages. Why is it that the title company started the most instrumental month? I agree with you but talk about that.
It’s primarily because they obviously have to add their documents and get those documents signed as well, and some of them are notarized in addition to all those lender docs. At some point, there has to be a combination of title and lender documents. For a long time, it’s been most title companies and settlement companies who have overseen that process on behalf of the lender, and they’ve come to master what that process looks like to the extent possible. One thing that a smart warehouse lender told me when I was at MERS was that, “If I mess with their process, they will never move forward. If we can apply technology to that process, it can accelerate.”
That’s what we tried to do here. One other thing I want to mention is that we are having the borrower sign these documents with their handwritten signature just like they would now. The difference is that it’s using the device, and we’re capturing the pressure points and everything else so that those investors know that they’re buying a loan that includes that borrower’s forensically handwritten signature on those documents. That’s belts and suspenders above a typical click-to-sign technology.
I see how EscrowTab is bringing something new to the market, especially for lenders and title companies that they haven’t experienced before. How will you continue to bring value to the industry as this adopts? What’s this vision, and how does it grow, Brendon?
There are a number of different products that we are offering that will be part of our suite of products, but then sometimes it’s also about providing flexibility so that those customers can use other products if they want to. If we talk about the product suite, it’s about having this In-Person Electronic Notarization platform or IPEN that we’re already rolling out and working with title companies on and that they like because borrowers still vote to want to preserve that in-person closing experience. That’s data that the Boston National Title and Solidify have done surveys on. We know that to be the truth.
The next piece of it is there are other documents that are inside an organization that needs to be electronically signed. Having that separate electronic signature platform like DocuSign is the next thing that we’re rolling out. Of course, in cases where either borrower might want it or there are certain documents like seller documents that can be closed and signed through a remote online notarization platform. Adding that piece to our entire suite of offerings is key. Someone might be using our own platform, or they could be connected using someone else’s remote online memorization platform. Providing flexibility and expansion of how things are signed within that organization is what we’re aiming to accomplish.
Amy, this has got to be shooting ducks in a barrel when you’re out there selling this because you’re saying you’re getting cheers from an audience. How many people have presented a new product concept to an audience and gotten cheers? This has got to be pretty encouraging to you. What are some of the things that you are seeing as far as the value that it’s bringing?
When we were at the NS3 Conference, we met both with a lot of lenders and with title companies. From both sides, they said to us, “We hear a lot about IPEN lately. What’s up with that? Why are we hearing so much, and why do we need to be paying attention?” I started to hear six months ago, and I did a big search to try to determine who’s talking about IPEN. There wasn’t a lot out there from the lender side, the title side, and the notary side. I saw notaries doing a lot of videos about RON and RON platforms, but not IPEN. It’s fun to see how now people are paying attention to how IPEN can bring them some pretty immediate efficiencies. At the NNA Conference, there was a large contingent of notaries from California saying, “This isn’t legal in California.”
I was like, “RON isn’t legal in California yet, but IPEN is.” You can see the light bulb switch on when you talk to people, and they get it like, “This is how I can start creating efficiencies for my business.” From the notary side, they’re entrepreneurs. They’re looking to save every dime they can for their business and the title side as well. When we had the conversations, I could see the light bulb pop on because they knew it was a differentiator they could offer to their lenders that a lot of other companies aren’t yet offering. It is fun to have those conversations and see the people who get it and want to move forward.
You can hear in the audience that this is unusual. Why is now such a critical time for title companies and lenders to move forward with implementing a closing solution?
I think we see the market dynamics of change dramatically. Everyone is looking for margin. This is definitely an efficient tool for title companies and for notary signing agents. The lenders finally get to be able to accept eNotes and electronically sign packages that are fully QCed coming back to them. Most lenders have a huge staff where they’re rechecking what should have been done completely by the title company already as a second review. When those documents go through our doc tagging functionality and we QC those documents at the end, a lot of that efficiency is gained by the lender as well, not to mention the eNote.
A lot of people now got breathing room. They realize it’s important to be as efficient as they can now. Lastly, now is a great time to build trust in all the people you want to work with for the next peak of mortgages. We know it’s coming back. We’re in a little bit of a lull right now. Everything looks clear that by this time in 2023, things are going to look dramatically different. You want to establish those partnerships at a time when if something were to go wrong, you could correct it and move to the next one. Those are the different things that we hear from title companies and lenders now about why they feel like now is the right time to move forward with some of these initiatives.Build trust in all the people you want to work with for the next peak of mortgages.

I can understand that. Amy, do you want to add anything to that?
David, you had mentioned that we’d known each other for a long time. I was thinking. I believe it was five years ago that you invited Brendon and me to be on the show when we were preparing to host our first eMortgage bootcamp because that would’ve been June 2018. I was thinking about the changes between five years ago and now. There’s a blame game going on a little bit between lender and title, with lenders saying, “Title isn’t ready to move forward with this,” and the title says, “Lenders aren’t ready to move forward.”
There was such a lack of knowledge about what was happening then, and there were a lot of competing priorities. A lot of different compliance issues were coming to the forefront then that lenders, even if they wanted to, were like, “We don’t have time to focus on this. We’re busy with all of these compliance issues.” Now, a lot of that’s past us. As Brendon mentioned, things have slowed down on the production side. There’s the time and more of the understanding. They’re more educated, and they know they have to do it. If we can get the ecosystem to work together instead of playing that blame game, it’s a path to success.
We have a lot of clients that are banks and credit unions. In that space or signature cards, we see these pads where there’s a pen and an iPad that they can write. Are you concerned that some of these other tools could come in and be a competition to you? It sounds like you’re the only one in this game with this technology this time. Can others come in and do the same thing with some of these other technologies being used in other areas?
From a competitive standpoint with other vendors, IP is always a great thing to have, and that’s something that we have. More importantly, we have figured out a way to harness this user experience that is so akin to what they’re doing now to the good pieces of what they’re doing now that we feel we have a much bigger lead. Some of those other tools you mentioned are trying to capture the borrower’s signature once and then place it in other places throughout the document. That is not a forensically verifiable signature. That is someone who has agreed to sign something electronically.
That’s legal, but if you go into any courtroom in the United States, you are only going in with that audit trail at that point. For us, we’ve had forensic analysts review documents that half the signatures are signed on EscrowTab, and half are signed with ink. Scan that in because that’s what’s usually going to the courtroom. Those forensic analysts can’t tell the difference. That’s because we’re capturing pressure points and everything else like you would with your normal ink signature. We feel that in terms of meshing the software with the hardware, we have a product that is so unique and so much easier to advance that the adoption takes on a life of its own.
Communicating that out, which Amy has been doing a fantastic job of, is where we are in our life cycle. Even regional title companies working more closely with the realtors are communicating to their realtor base and saying, “I have something that can provide a better experience for you. It’s an efficiency tool for that title company.” They see those cost savings of around $175 loan inside those title companies, and it’s material business.
That’s significant. Is this going to start accelerating the whole eClosing thing? Is this the missing link you think might increase the speed from glacial adoption speeds to more rapid adoption speeds?
We think it will be one of those accelerators. We’re not naive enough to think that we’ll be the only person in the market offering any platform. From an IPEN solution, we do feel like we are going to be the winner in this area. A lot of that has to do with the whole team at EscrowTab, from our developers to our customer support to our marketing communications. It takes everyone to make it work that way.
We focus on making sure that every customer we sign up for has an excellent user experience but also a customer support experience. When that signing agent is at the table, there is not much room for error. You need to make sure that if anything happens, we are right there to help them out and provide that support. Those are all the pieces that make us believe we can continue to be the leading IPEN solution in the industry.
It’s very exciting to see this technology come to market and the vision that you have. I want to encourage our audience to get ahold of you. How can they do so?
They can go to EscrowTab.com. We released a new website so they can visit that and review our resources out there. If they would like to request a demo from us, there’s a form they can fill out for lenders entitled to request a demo. It’s a notary that happens to be listening. There’s also a form that they can complete so that they can sign up to start the process of becoming an EscrowTab-enabled notary signing agent. They can contact Brendon or me directly at [email protected] and [email protected].
I want to add David with Brendon talking about it takes the team. It’s fun to work together and see the reactions of lender titles and notaries. We met with a lender at NS3, and she loved that forensically verifiable signature. She didn’t start cheering and clapping, but she was almost there in a meeting. She’s like, “Let me get that down.” I want to be able to tell her executive team exactly what it was because it was something new that she had never seen before. It’s fun to see the reactions of people and how excited they’re getting about this.
Brendon, with your leadership style, I’ve watched you at MERS. I’ve now watched you here, and you do attract good people. It’s great to have great technology, but as you said, it’s the people behind it that make that happen. What has been the key to your success in attracting the right people other than who you are?
Honestly, David, I have always had this mentality that if you trust the people that you’ve hired, hiring great people from the start is key to it, but then you trust them to do their job and to fulfill their tasks and be innovative in how they go about thinking of new ways to do the job, that empowers them to be successful. Amy is an example of how we have worked together for a long time.
When we got her into the right position at MERS running marketing and communications, she literally changed the industry. There was no communication out there at that time about eNotes and eMortgages. If you give people the power to do what they do great, they are always going to be happy, working hard, and motivated to wake up in the morning and support the company. That’s what I’ve always tried to do. Now that’s what we try to do throughout EscrowTab.If you give people the power to do what they do great, they are always going to be happy. They will always be working hard and motivated to wake up and support the company. Click To Tweet
Congratulations on getting an evangelist like Amy on board, Brendon. I’m excited about what you’re doing and launching. Amy, I love what you’re saying, which is, “Driving results through engagement and enjoyment.” When you have that, and you’re doing something exciting, you guys create that. I’m encouraging our audience to reach out to you. Who should we be mostly driving towards you, and what?
We consider our three engagement points, our lenders, title companies and signing agents. Of those three people, lenders need to know what we’re up to. We have several bank clients who close all their mortgages in-house. They’re using EscrowTab in their branches to make sure that they’re getting that fully QC package back. Title companies are where that core service provider is because they’re the ones typically merging all those documents together.
The mobile signing agents are the ones that are EscrowTab-enabled in order to meet with the borrower and perform those closings. Those are the three key pieces for us. The lender’s reaction has been fantastic because once they realize, “I can move forward with this, and I don’t have to go become the closing expert. I don’t have to manage the closing or any piece of this closing anymore. I can have something that I can drop my documents into and let my title agent partners run with it.”
It’s very exciting. Have you been able to get any statistics on the cost-saving potential of using IPEN?
We have some savings from the notary side. It saves them about $45 per closing both in hard costs and in their time. That’s one thing we had a lot of conversations about this past week was the value of their time if they’re not spending time printing 1 or 2 copies of documents. If they’re not driving to the FedEx, that’s a lot of time they can save either doing other closings or spending more time with their family or whatever it is. What we found out is a lot of the notaries are very community minded and give back to their communities in a lot of ways, so they can spend their time doing that. It’s $45 per closing for the notaries, and then on the title and lender side, we’ve seen those stats as well.
Some of those regional title agencies are seen as much as $175 per file, a 75% reduction in time reduction in slipping the package because that’s immediately being dropped back into their system. They’re able to pull those documents down and then deliver them back to the lender. With so many lenders wanting to decrease their term times and get them over to Fanny, Freddy, Indu, or a Ginnie Mae pool, those are key figures for them to be able to make sure that the loan gets funded immediately and then they’re in a position where they can turn around and sell that loan in the secondary markets. With eNote, be able to take advantage of that warehouse line efficiency.
I can see so many places where money could be saved as a result of it. That’s good. Thank you so much for both being here and sharing this exciting new technology and service. I encourage everyone to get ahold of you. This could make a real difference in someone’s business’s success or failure. If you’re competing against someone who has this and someone who doesn’t, especially when it comes to those last-minute changes, this is a game-changer. It’s very exciting.
Thank you for having us, David. We believe it’s a game-changer. I’m thinking we should get you an IPEN t-shirt. Brendon and I should have worn ours. We did this during our session. You talk about having fun. We had t-shirts where I was the I, Brendon was the P, somebody else was an E, and somebody else was an N, so that spelled out IPEN to reinforce that. People had fun with that. We need to get you one that says IPEN.
I always love getting some swag from folks that are on the show. I welcome that very much.
Thank you, David. To your point about having fun, everyone knows that they’re going to have fun if they’re on the David Lykken Show. We both had fun as well. Thank you for your time.
It’s an honor. I’m excited about your success, and we’ll be having you back. Thank you.
Allen mentioned something earlier about the re-verification solution that Freddie Mac is bringing to the marketplace. I want to mention to our audience that it is going to be next week’s Hot Topic segment with Christy Moss from FormFree and Christina Randolph from Freddie Mac. I was a part of that discussion, and I’ll tell our audience to mark that date on your calendar. This is an excellent Hot Topic section and will be something you want to read to help streamline what is a time-consuming step at the end of the origination process right before closing.
That’s a can’t-miss. Again, I’d like to mention our sponsors, Finastra Fusion Mortgagebot Solution, FormFree, Lender Toolkit, Snapdocs, Total Expert, SimpleNexus, the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, Lenders One, the Mortgage Collaborative, SuccessKit, Knowledge Coop, Mobility MMI, Modex, Mortgage Advisory Tools, and DW Consulting with Debbie Wemyss.
