Ep. 2O RON Adoption in Florida with the Fund’s Melissa Murphy


As General Counsel to The Fund, Melissa Murphy helps real estate attorney members in Florida excel at their jobs. In the beginning of 2020, the state of Florida implemented its Remote Online Notarization law, so Title Talks host Amanda Farrell reached out to Melissa to discuss how professionals can best adopt the new technology into their operations. She shares some of the features that real estate attorneys and title agents should be looking for in a RON platform and her hopes for improvements from technology providers.

“People wanted to know how do I get in? How do I sign up with a platform? What's required? They wanted to learn in a great big hurry and, of course, their closing was in two days. The interest though now has definitely changed. There's still an interest in it, but it's kind of leveled out." Melissa Murphy
