The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a great number of changes in how we work and live our lives. In real estate, it has forced all of us to find new ways to maintain a balance between doing business and protecting the health and safety of our associates and clients.

Remote online notarization (RON) is a great example of a tool that does both. Stewart was the first to use RON in digital closings, and we’re excited about the possibilities now that it’s become legal in Arizona.

Here, I’d like to answer some of the questions we’ve received about RON over the past few years. Hopefully, this will answer some of yours.
