Our 2015 Customer Conference: Discovering Natural Treasures in Amelia Island, Florida.
For more than 300 years, contracts for the sale or lease of land in Ontario have required ink and paper. Beginning July 1, 2015, electronic signatures can now be accepted on digital real estate agreements, deeds and mortgages in Ontario.
This is big news for a thriving real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), where the average price of a detached home just rose over $1.052 million Canadian dollars. However, before you begin emailing contracts, take note from Toronto real estate lawyer Bob Aaron, via thestar.com:
Even though electronic signatures will now be legal in the real estate context, those signatures are only effective if it can be proved that the signatures are reliable for the purpose of identifying the person signing, and the attachment of a signature to the electronic document is also reliable.
Since the law does not define how to determine whether a signature is reliable, it is up to individual real estate agents and lawyers using electronic signatures to satisfy themselves that the legal requirements have been met.
I expect that the use of electronic signature platforms like DocuSign (docusign.com) will become popular among real estate agents and lawyers anxious to jump on the electronic bandwagon.
Constellation has partnered with DocuSign to offer integration between the world’s leading provider in electronic signature management and our new home sales software. Builders using our flagship NEWSTAR Enterprise homebuilder management software along with NEWSTAR Sales save valuable time and organization headaches, and rest assured that their sales contracts are saved securely.
To see NEWSTAR and DocuSign, please request a demonstration. Note that we are also working to integrate DocuSign with our other sales software for homebuilders.
We’re excited about the enhancements and integrations we’ve developed for our software in 2013. Our builders are constantly demanding new functionality to help them manage daily tasks and increase efficiencies. See what new with our software at the Builders’ Show.
Constellation HomeBuilder Systems has integrated DocuSign’s electronic signature solution with its enterprise home building software to help builders reduce risk, achieve greater compliance, accelerate approval processes, and save time and money. DocuSign will provide home builders, contractors and home buyers with the easiest, fastest, most secure way to complete and sign lien waivers, contracts and more—anytime, anywhere—even in-person at a construction site.
DocuSign has currently been integrated with the NEWSTAR Enterprise Builder Management System. Streamline your sales process by allowing customers to sign when and where they choose – and keep all of your documents securely stored in NEWSTAR.
The Constellation development team is currently integrating DocuSign with more of our ERP systems for home builders. If you would like more information, please fill out the form below.
From November 4-6, Constellation HomeBuilder Systems hosted over 200 guests from across the United States and Canada at the gorgeous JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa. The three-day event brought our home building customers together with 25 representatives of the Constellation team, keynote speakers from home building and beyond, as well as Professional Buildermagazine’s BENCHMARK Roundtables guests.
We are excited to see our customers taking time out of their busy schedules and out of their comfort zones to interact with fellow – often competitive – builders. With networking events tied closely to keynote and training sessions, the conference promoted discussion amongst builders, who were ready and eager to learn.
Our cocktail reception kicked off the conference, allowing customers to unwind with a cocktail as they arrived in Arizona. As the night wore on, a little Arizona rain shower kept everyone on their toes.
Dr. Nick Bontis kicked off the conference the next morning, with a lively keynote on the modern stresses of “information bombardment” and how to manage and maximize the data coming at you by the minute. Test your own ability to manage this information on nick’s website. A panel of top builders then discussed operations and how Constellation systems can be used to keep information flowing through the organization.

Lunch – the food at Camelback was incredible – was held alongside a mini “trade show” where builders had the opportunity to demo peripheral software to enhance their existing systems, including land development, custom reporting, digital marketing, and electronic signature applications. The afternoons brought a combination of software training sessions specific to the builder’s ERP system, or complementary keynotes delivered by Charlie Scott of Woodland, O’Brien, and Scott, Michael White of G1440, and Blayne Parrish of Center6.
Day two kicked off with Scott Sedam of TrueNorth on the Lean Building Revolution, and Drew Gallanar of DocuSign discussing how home builders can use electronic signatures to streamline the sales process. Read DocuSign’s press release about integrating with Constellation’s software for home builders.
Software training again filled the afternoon with ideas and strategies, until Denis Leonard closed the conference with the Steps to Performance Excellence which tied into the next day’s events. Professional Builder magazine hosted Constellation builders at the National Housing Quality Awards, then kicked off the BENCHMARK Roundtables on Thursday.
Thank you to all customers who were able to join us in Scottsdale. It was exciting for us to have you all in one place again, networking and sharing ideas. We are looking forward to next year!
We almost forgot: before the Conference kicked off, we hit the links of the Camelback Golf Club with home builders who should shouldn’t quit their day jobs! (Nor should any Constellation golfers.) Here’s a quick video of the Best “Constellation Swingers” Caught on Tape! Vote for your favourite swinger in the comments!
“I want to thank [the Constellation team] for giving us so much time and attention. You all went out of your way to answer our questions and concerns. We are looking forward to building our relationship in the future.”
“Thank you for your time and personal attention during the conference. Your conference was the best I have ever attended, and I felt that the structure truly met our goals as attendees. The networking was great, the seminars were very helpful and the keynote speakers were amazing.”
