With Close Happy® you have access to a variety of closing options at your disposal. No matter which option you choose we will allow you to close when and where you want!
Traditional Real Estate Closing
The classic paper and pen method of closing requires a notary to be present, and can take over an hour. We even allow you to close when and where you want!
Only a portion of the documents are signed electronically. Key documents like promissory notes and security instruments are printed and signed while other closing documents are signed electronically via phone, tablet, or a desktop browser. Notary is required for some documents.
The entire closing process is done digitally. In some cases where allowed, a notary is not required. Not every eClosing necessarily leads to an eMortgage, but they are the only route.
With our centralized processing, we offer our full scope of title services nationally and loan closings throughout 48 states from a centralized location.

Initial Request for Title Insurance
An order for title insurance is opened when the loan officer orders a title. Elevated Title™ will produce the initial response promptly within 15 minutes if we are integrated with you.
A preliminary report can be issued without even identifying the buyer or the terms of the sale. This shows the public record title as it presently exists, and it is only an offer to provide insurance.
On-Site Searching and Examining
Elevated Title™ performs three searches: property, name, and tax searches. From that information, a preliminary report is created. Our on-site title department expedites the process of obtaining hard copies of recorded documents. Imaging helps to expedite searches with the ability to obtain documents online.
The skill and expertise of our title officers and attorneys is the key to providing you with a useful, accurate title report. Once the report is issued, the review begins by making a technical analysis of the documents of record. An interpretive view of all recorded matters is made to evaluate their impact on the title to the property.
Among the questions the examiner asks are: Would any of the recorded matters prevent the buyer from using the property for its intended purpose? Will the lender be in first position? Can antiquated leases be eliminated from the policy per a review of the current leases?
In anticipation of ALTA coverage, a site inspection is ordered. From the inspection report, the initial title product is supplemented to show any encroachments or other off-record matters which could ultimately impact the title.
We Earn Your Respect with our Skills, Service and Solutions
When we identify impediments to closing a transaction, we also offer assistance and solutions. By understanding the sometimes delicate balance of the interests of the parties involved in a transaction and professionally and courteously handling issues as they arise, we can guide a transaction to a successful conclusion.
