I was in the bank a few days ago, opening up a new business checking account when one of the bank employees looked my check over then, looked up and asked me what do I do as a Notary.
My check that I was depositing is one of three for this week and it was for $150.
The woman mentioned that she’s a Notary Public, too, but she had no idea what I did that would make me $150 compared to the maximum she is allowed to charge.
In Virginia, the highest amount Notaries can charge for each signature (and stamp or seal) is $5.
So, what in the World did I do as a Notary that allowed me to be paid $150 by the lending company that was on my check? What was so special about me?
What I do that is different from the bank employee is called a “Loan Signing Agent”. No, not a real estate agent and I don’t give out bank loans.
What I do is assist Borrowers in properly filling out and signing their documents for loan officers. Additionally, I sign and notarize where I need to.
My appointments have taken me up to two and a half hours before I took a course called the “Loan Signing System” by Mark Wills.
I might sound like a commercial but I’m so serious when I tell you that Mark Wills’ course saved my Notary career!
I really needed the additional stream of income after I got laid off last year, but I have to admit that I was terrified to go in front of a Borrower who is making a large purchase (typically, Borrowers are purchasing homes or land) and have no clue what I was doing. My Dad, who has been a Notary Public for over 20 years had trained me on what the documents were in a purchase loan package. But, he didn’t quite understand what I needed to know for my appointment with the Borrower.
Furthermore, as a loan signing agent, there is real pressure not to make any mistakes which is very easy to do if you don’t know what you’re doing and haven’t had the proper training.
So, needless to say, my first loan signing was a disaster. I was completely lost but I needed the money so I took the appointment and said I was available. I was available but was I ready was the real question and that would have been a resounding, “NO!”
Neverthless, I nervously packed up my briefcase the night prior and headed out for my first loan signing early the next morning.
I was so nervous when I got into that office that I could barely think straight. I vaguely remember being relieved that there were only two people that I had to speak in front of. I know God is most definitely on my side because the real estate agent was one of those people.
From the beginning, the real estate agent asked me if I wanted to go over the documents or should she.
I kind of pushed the paperwork back towards her and I managed to get out, “You can do it. That’s fine wth me.”
I don’t want this blog article to be as long as my first loan signing; but, let me just say that was the most awkward two and a half hours of my entire life. Ok, I’m exaggerating but it was a nightmare.
Once the appointment was completed, I went home knowing that I wasn’t going to go on another loan signing until I’d had some training.
Then, along came Mark. 🙂
I went straight to YouTube to look for any videos that could help me learn how to do perform loan signing appointments better.
Thankfully, Mark Wills, had released some of his videos on YouTube and I remember watching one video after another like a desperate person in the desert who was severely dehydrated and needed water.
I was so hungry for the knowledge that I immediately subscribed to his YouTube channel and purchased his Loan Signing System course later that night.
I actually went through all the videos (it took several hours to go straight through) in one night and took my exam. The course is amazing because you will have access to the videos for life. If you aren’t satisfied with the course, there is a 100% Money Back guarantee.
The course offers an example of an actual loan package with over 100 pages and tons of videos and bonus features to help you be well on your way to becoming the most knowledgeable Loan Signing Agent in America!
And as if all that Mark offered wasn’t enough, Mark was extremely nice, answering all my frantic questions as I went through the course and after I took the exam at the end.
It’s very obvious to me that Mark loves what he does as a Loan Signing Agent and he’s very passionate about it.
And, so am I.
I scheduled a loan signing appointment a couple of days after receiving my Loan Signing System Certification and I was astounded at how much more confident and smart I was about the entire process. The appointment was about 150 pages more than my very first appointment and it took me less time to complete it because I knew what the secret was to successfully getting through a loan signing thanks to Mark’s Loan Signing System.
