Our Story

Although we now serve the Title and Escrow industry, when we got our first client in 2013 (the number one RE/MAX franchise in the world with 1000+ agents) our goal was to help real estate agents communicate with their buyers and sellers during the real estate transaction. A year into that deal, we realized that hardly any of the agents were using the tool as planned, so the owner asked our co-founders, Paul Stine and Bill Svoboda if the "timeline tool" could help his Title company communicate with his real estate agents and consumers during the closing instead.

With his guidance we launched CloseSimple for his title company and shifted our focus to serving the land title industry. Thanks to the vision of that first client, today CloseSimple is the trusted name in real estate communication throughout the closing process, sending tens of thousands of texts and emails a day to help title and escrow companies communicate during the closing process.
