Michigan Notary drove out of state to visit these companies!

This Michigan Notary is obviously very serious about business. His understanding about business is similar to mine. He understood that meeting people face to face improves a business relationship. People are more comfortable doing business with people they interact with regularly, especially if they have seen you in person once or a few times. If you have a choice of doing business with someone you have used before, but didn’t interact much with, and someone who you have seen in person, wouldn’t you feel more comfortable with the one who “personally appeared before you?”

The unusual part is that this Michigan Notary Public Drove from Michigan to Pennsylvania, Virginia, and other states to see these signing companies. I have never heard of anyone driving so far just to see Title companies. People doing business on a larger scale might make long trips, but for this type of business that shows class!

Companies this notary visited include:
LSI, Service link, National Link, National Real Estate, and others.

The Michigan Notary told me that they don’t just hire him because of how personalized his service is, although that adds a great finishing touch. He gets hired because he is also very reliable and experienced at what he does. Documents get signed on time and delivered on time every time. He has signed over 10,000 loans, so he knows the drill.

I just thought I would share this story with you all since it is so endearing and so unusual!

The moral of the story is:
(1) Do quality, punctual work, and…
(2) Be personal. Get to know people. And if they see your pretty face in person, that is a huge plus!

(1) This notary is a people-person. He drove from Michigan to PA & VA to see his Title co. clients!
(2) If people see you in person, they’re more likely to rehire you than if they only know you by phone!

  1. 10,000 signings over ten years would be about 2.7 a day, assuming working 365.25 days a year.

    Of course if he has been at it for 20 years; then he would have to do 2.7 signings every 2 days.

    If he works 5 out of 7 days a week: he is down to 260 work days. For 10 years 10,000/2600 = 3.8 signings per day. For 20 years 10,000/5200 = 1.9 signings per day.

    Assume, on the low side; twenty signatures per signing, and half of them to be notarized per signing = ten notarizations per signing.

    Thus, he claims to have done 100,000+ notarizations. I will agree with you that is “so unusual”.
