[PRESS RELEASE] CloseSimple Text Messaging: Easily update Realtors, Buyers, Sellers & more during the title closing process.

Bill Svoboda on Aug 6, 2019 11:42:46 AM
CloseSimple makes it easy to send automated Text Message updates to Real Estate Agents and Consumers during the closing process.

"This is a giant step forward for the title industry. If someone can get text message updates from their doctor, dentist or food delivery service, they should also be able to get simple updates from their title company during the closing process.” says Bill Svoboda, co-founder of CloseSimple.

CloseSimple integrates with SoftPro, ResWare, RamQuest, and GreenFolders, so no double-data entry is required, and texts can be automated out of most systems. This allows  employees at title companies to avoid using their personal cell phones to send text updates - instead title and escrow companies can text directly from their landline phone numbers.

[VIDEO] Create a Remarkable Closing Experience // ALTA Webinar

Bill Svoboda on Jul 25, 2019 5:19:27 PM
Over 900 people signed up to hear our co-founder Bill Svoboda, as he was featured on the American Land Title's latest webinar (sponsored by Fidelity), titled "Make Yourself Remarkable: Marketing for Growth Begins with a Great Closing Experience." 

Bill discussed why title companies should stop trying to just compete against the next title company, and instead create a closing process that is "Remarkable" (worth talking about).  In addition to discussing how businesses in other industries are doing this, Bill moderates a conversation with Andi Bolin, President of Celebrity Title in Houston TX, and Brian Cooper, President of Unified Title in Colorado Springs CO.

In this webinar Bill, Andi and Brian discuss:
  • Why your real competition is not the title company down the street - it is Amazon, Netflix, Uber, Zappos, etc.
  • Why your team should book their next meeting at the local Nordstrom.
  • How a lunch from Panera could change EVERYTHING about your closing.
  • The difference between Customer Service and Customer Experience; and what that means for you, your team and your customers.
  • How to effectively "Date" your customers (Real Estate Agents)
  • How to create a dynamic team to offer a superior closing experience; beginning with hiring based on "happy."

[VIDEO] CloseSimple's ALTA Springboard Most Talked About Features.

Bill Svoboda on Mar 26, 2019 4:06:11 PM

It was a blast to see everyone in Memphis, TN, at ALTA Springboard.  The conference flew by, and as we got back to Minneapolis, we realized the same questions and topics of conversation came up over and over ...

- How our Text Messaging works.
- How CloseSimple helps elevate the closing experience for all parties.
- How CloseSimple does not have a Realtor or Consumer Portal (we do not require anyone to log in to see the status of their files).
- How our Emails look and how they are triggered in the Title Production Software.
- What Title Production Software we integrate with. 

So here's a quick video that we made (just over 2 min long) so you can see CloseSimple in action and to answer some of those questions.
