Initials, abbreviations, acronyms, etc.

Hey, I know its cool to be a part of the "in crowd" and already know all the abbreviations, initials, etc. that are used in these messages but could you fill me in too? Is there a place on this site to get a list of what ESS, NREIS, G/B/U/, n/m, etc. means? Its kind of frustrating trying to read some of these posts. Thanks so much!

None of us know this at first...

...but simple use of the search function usually helps. I'm not kidding... the orange button usually answers a lot of these questions very quickly. That's why it's there.

But... some resources to help you:

n/m: This is a system generated code on a lot of message board. It means "nothing more" or "no message" -- in other words, the entire response is visible in the subject line and there's no need to click on it, because it's an empty message.

GBU: "Good. Bad. Ugly" -- It can also mean, 'God Bless You," but nobody really uses it here in that context. It means the person is asking for details about a particular subject from people who have experience. Around here it usually refers to Title Companies and Signing Services.

NREIS: Now, really... this can be found in a simple Google search. It stands for National Real Estate Information Services. But, for other it means, "No Respect..." -- They're a crappy servicing company with a poor payment record that continues to suck in people to work for them.

ESS: Equifax Settlement services

TC: Title Company

SS: Signing Service

SC: Signing Central

I have compiled and published a fairly comprehensive acronym list that is specific (more or less) to the signing agent. You can view this list at

(Updates, corrections and additions to the list are always welcome.)
