Comments I liked on the Blog August 2018

Filed under: Social Media — admin @ 10:48 am

Some of the comments we get on our blog are really interesting, and learning tools for myself and the rest of us. Here are a few that I liked and/or found fascinating.

Here are comments I liked. With all the grief Carmen and I go through, it is nice that people appreciate the good things we do.

General Response
“Always good friend no. Like the humor it keeps me alert”

General Response
“I love your articles…you put such a funny twist on stuff. Makes me laugh!!”

General Response
“Good review Jeremy, keep these coming, these are helpful tools to keep us sharp. Thank you.”

General Response
“Notaries are careless and sloppy. Over the last 10 years I’ve assisted about 30 second signers on documents, usually refinances. I believe just one or two were error free… either a mistake by the notary, or missing a mistake by the signer accounted for the others. Frequently two or more errors refinanced.Lenders are even worse.”

General Response
“Indeed. 123notary is a refreshing site for sure. I love it!!!! And – I definitely love your (Ken Edelstein) comments and notarial instructions–thank you! And I do appreciate Jeremy holding notaries to a higher standard. I was at a signing not long ago as a Witness. An attorney conducted the signing and did NOT swear the Borrowers in and did not do a Journal entry though he acted as the Notary. I was agape and aghast.

I do think the readers should stay away from red vans and northern Massachusetts back roads where there are lurking slippery seals in an oil spill due to offshore drilling that Harvey Weinstein undoubtedly caused and the Buddhist nuns condoned. The café that Jeremy described is most likely haunted by notaries who do not listen, do not care, do not swear people in, do not keep a Journal, and who rarely pick up their phones unless it is Harvey calling them, and, generally, who ain’t right and ain’t gonna get right. There are most certainly better roads and cafes in Gwinnett County, Georgia, where you are apt to find Your Favorite Mobile Notary enjoying a cuppa and studying Professor Closen’s new book. /Penny ”

The way you treat Jeremy might be the same way you treat title. Response

“I hope 123notary staff realize how thankful this notary is for all that you do! Hope to never be perceived as rude or ungrateful….so wanted to publicly acknowledge this job generating venue.”

Notary Public 101 Vocabulary Response

Notary Public 101 — Basic Notary Vocabulary


“Good info Jeremy! You even made it interesting with the random additional information! I”m curious, could one of those be on the test as well??”

Letter to Donald Trump response.
http://blog.123notary.com/?p=19908
“I agree wholeheartedly with the case Larry has stated above. Over-regulation does not make an industry better, it cripples it. That why President Trump has rescinded so many hundreds of regulations ion so many areas. It no longer takes 19 years to get approval to build a road, for example. All the regulations in California need to stay right there and not infect the Great State of Florida. How much of the qualifiers are really in the interests of the notary industry, the notaries or in the interests of those trying to regulate.”

My best 100 days and Carmen’s worst Reply

“Seems to be plenty of business if you seek it out. Most notaries do not treat their business as a business.”

My best test questions are from Carmen, but… response
http://blog.123notary.com/?p=19676
“Quite frankly, I too have had the testing call. The problem is not your questions. The problem is most of your questions are state specific with the calls being made between 5pm and 9pm. Personally I don’t want to answer a pop quiz when I have been closing loans all day and am trying to fix supper or relax or even heading out the door for an evening loan closing. You surprise most people when you call because a subscription service like yours should not be “vetting” their notaries. So most people at least for the first few seconds are trying to wrap their head around why you are calling. We pay for this service and do not wish to be harassed then berated on a public forum if we dont answer your questions within a few seconds.

My advice to you? Calm down, assist notaries with their education vs. a pop quiz. Help with marketing solutions. Provide tips with a state law or one of your questions/ideas. I realize that there are many notaries that need more education, and there are a lot of really great notaries out there as well. If you require a measurement of their ability, then lobby for a signing agent state license vs. a certificate similar to a title agent or mortgage broker.

And please, please, please quit putting down the very people that keep you in business!”

Some of you people have a few screws loose response

“Jeremy, I too don’t want to get on your bad side and totally respect your standards that notaries need to study and keep up to date.

However, in the trenches things are much different than being asked questions over the phone at a time you are not mentally prepared for. When I am going to a signing and before ( even at the time of making the appointment) I begin reshearsing, thinking, and planning for the possible events of the signing. I have more the one form of employment, so it takes me a moment or two to get in my Notary frame of mind. Honestly, answering question after question over the phone is not a full measure of the quality of a notaries knowledge or expertise. That said, you provide a valuable service to all and I applaud you. I know my phone call to test is coming, I only hope its in the am and you don’t mind my long pauses to think! jk”
