Who needs to be at the closing?

The only person required to be at your closing is you, the buyer OR seller. The buyer and seller will come to the closing at separate times to sign the required documents. So, the only people required to be in the room is you and our team, the closing agent. Others can join you if you’d like such as your spouse or significant other, a family member, friend, or real estate agent. However, keep in mind that confidential documents and negotiation details will be present in the closing. Don’t bring someone if you’d like to keep those private from that individual.

Where do the closings take place?
