Updated Saturday March 28
Effective Monday March 30, we will restrict the closing rooms at all of our locations to our personnel and the signers related to the closing transaction. Realtors®, lenders and visitors will have to remain in our lobby areas while maintaining 6 feet of distance separation at all times. Signers can establish a speakerphone call with Realtors® and lenders from the closing room for questions or assistance. This new measure is to minimize the number of guests in our closing rooms and provider a safer environment for our personnel. We appreciate your cooperation
