MRED LogoMidwest Real Estate Data (MRED), the Chicagoland multiple listing service, continues to expand and provide the Chicago area with the cutting edge technology and convenience sought-after by today’s real estate agents and brokers to help close deals more efficiently.

MRED announced that it has integrated the DocuSign eSignature solution into its industry-leading connectMLS™ platform.

DocuSign, the global standard for eSignature, provides a solution that helps agents and brokers complete real estate transactions faster with an easier, more convenient experience for both buyers and sellers.

“At MRED we’ve adopted DocuSign’s award-winning eSignature solution as our standard so Chicago area real estate professionals can close more deals faster,” said Russ Bergeron, CEO of MRED. “DocuSign is convenient and easy to use, accelerating the pace of real estate deals to make home buying and selling a great experience. MRED took it one step further and integrated DocuSign within its connectMLS™ platform to initiate the electronic signature process from within the MLS system, where agents and brokers work every day.”

DocuSign will help MRED to provide members an easy way to complete the last step of closing a transaction: the all important signature. DocuSign helps real estate agents:

  • Gain visibility & control – DocuSign lets real estate agents see who has opened, reviewed, and signed documents, and stores the completed transactions in the cloud for easy access by all signing parties.
  • Enhance the buying and selling experience – DocuSign makes securely signing real estate papers easy, fast, and convenient — anytime, anywhere, on any device.

“DocuSign has deep roots in real estate, having helped agents, buyers, and sellers close millions of transactions faster with the industry standard for eSignature,” said Tom Gonser, chief strategy officer at DocuSign. “We’re proud to partner with MRED to bring the power and convenience of DocuSign eSignature to their members and clients.”Chicagoland real estate professionals interested in DocuSign may visit Real estate professionals throughout the country may visit
