aligns with your needs. Look online for review sites that provide accurate breakdowns of the top
providers and their features, allowing you a clear overview of what each one has to offer. Once
you have narrowed down your search to a handful of options, visit their websites and really dive
into what it is that makes them unique and perfect for your transactions. You’ll know for sure
which provider you want to partner with once you demo their platform and get a feel for how the
interface works and how it will help speed up your time-consuming deal.

to approach your deal and your advisors with a general idea of what you expect the price to look
like so that you aren’t blindsided or uncomfortable working with a providers during an already
arduous deal.
