How to Sign an Apartment Lease Quickly

A big challenge for real estate brokers in the leasing industry is coordinating the signing of a lease by both the lessor and lessee. Sometimes a broker may need to schedule a time for everyone to come in and sign the document. Often times there is a lot of signing and faxing involved by all parties. It is truly an operational ordeal.

Luxury Living Chicago strived to improve the efficiency of this portion of our leasing process. We realized with today’s technology, there should be no reason we couldn’t find a way to automate a lease signing.

We researched the best in class e-signature automation tools, and DocuSign quickly rose to the top of our list. This web-based application allows Luxury Living Chicago to upload our own unique, customized leases and send them to the tenant via e-mail. The tenant can sign the lease from their desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone.

DocuSign integrates seamlessly with all of our applications including Dropbox and Google.  These integrations have allowed us to continue to grow our business, while improving efficiency within our leasing process.

Most importantly, DocuSign is safe and secure. It’s the only eSignature provider on the market with the International ISO 27001 certification and SSAE 16 compliance. This means signatures are legally binding and will hold-up in court.

Recently, DocuSign announced a partnership with Madison Hildebrand of the popular Bravo TV Show, Million Dollar Listing LA. If Madison is using this on his million dollar deals, we know the product must be good!
