Getting a Notary Commission is simple and we have a successful "Become A
Notary In One Day" Program. It is quick and very inexpensive. All you have to do is
pass a 30-question exam, pass a background check, and pay the State $40. We have
extremely high passing rates.
With a Notary Commission you will be able to give clients better service. You
are not going to get rich charging the maximum $10 per signature, but you will gain
exposure. I recommend agents advertise "free" service to clients and their friends.
One transaction created from notary work would pay all the expenses for an entire
In my opinion, being a Notary and putting the information on your business card
increases credibility, particularly for new or inexperienced licensees.
You can assist fellow associates and State Law allows you to notarize your own
Grantor's and Trustor's documents. If you have a financial interest in a transaction you
can't notarize, but when you are receiving a commission on a transaction, you have an
Having a commission allows you to promote yourself in different ways. You
could advertise free acknowledgements once a month at a Senior Center. You could

Escrow and Title Companies need "loan document signers" to carry refinance
papers. Reverse mortgage companies need notaries with real estate knowledge to carry
documents. Also, asset management companies need traveling notaries. Foreclosure
trustees need people to post sales information on properties and in a public place.
When you hire workers, you could have them take a notary class, be tested and
be fingerprinted. You would know that they are above average in intelligence, when they
pass. Ready to try something new, can work under pressure and they passed an extreme
background check. That is worth the small cost and you have a Notary in your office.
One more thought. You have a bright young offspring going to college or looking
for a job. If they apply for a job, for example, at a college or retail operation, I believe
applicants who stress that they are a notary (tested and fingerprinted) would move to the
front of the line. Starting this year Notary Applicants are checked out by the Department
of Justice and the FBI. Impressive on a job application.
