I had never specifically thought of signature security, but recently clients asked if we could do digital signatures for their disclosures that I would upload to MLS.  They were concerned about their "real" signatures being accessible to, well, whomever, for duplication and falsification.  (That ...

HyperLocal blogging is so closely pinned to a community or individual subdivision that it is unlikely you will get 3 calls on a blog overnig...
