Our Story

 

 

Start from the beginning

Founder and Owner of Caffeinated Closings Inc., Conner Brown, started his loan signing agent journey as a source of additional income while working as an Aerospace Engineer in San Diego. Along the way, he built many great relationships with local escrow officers, and completed over 1000 signings, before he committed to being a full time loan signing agent.

During this time Conner found various problems with the typical loan signing process. For example; last minute document changes. To be able to accommodate last minute signings and quick revisions without leaving the signers driveway,  Conner innovated his own mobile printing station powered by his car's battery. After offering to share his design with any notary who wanted it, for free, he was reached out to, by Mark Wills, the owner of Loan Signing System, to use his engineering skills to design a mobile office that any notary could assemble. Soon he was training thousands of loan signing agents, nationwide, to assemble the mobile office that he designed, all while growing his business as a signing agent.

Caffeinated Closings is born

With the innovation of the mobile office, his knowledge, and great customer service, Conner became a highly desired notary in the San Diego County area. However, Conner continued to notice a common problem in the industry: out of area notary signings were often the biggest headache for his clients, and he saw a tremendous opportunity for a better product. Because of this, in 2020, he took a leap of faith, and resigned from his full time engineering position to better focus on his client base.

His mission: To build a better a signing service that would be different than any other before, that could solve this roadblock in the industry. A signing service that solves all of his clients problems, instead of creating new ones.

 He always prided himself on an error free signing and topnotch customer experience. After over a year of continued success, Conner decided to take what he learned as a loan signing agent and make an impact across the United States. Caffeinated Closings was born with the goal of giving escrow officers and signers the premium loan signing experience Conner would give, but nationwide.
