3. Set the stage for excellence.

These are steps that make every meeting better!

Atmosphere is everything. Let’s take all the steps to prepare the ideal signing scenario! This will strengthen and add protection to your transaction! 

Create the ideal signing space. Tables and relaxed atmospheres help ensure nothing get’s messy or missed altogether.  (Signing a 100 pages between 3 people in a rush on a tv tray get’s tricky!) 

The Golden Rule all around. It’s important to us to do great work for you! We’re all on the same team with the same mission. We want to see your transaction fulfilled. When we work together, both signers and notaries are empowered to make give their best energy to great work.

If we make a mistake.  As much as we prepare, every transaction is unique and different. If there is an initial or signature is missed, we’ll come back for it at no cost. Thank you for your kind understanding!


4. Let's Catch any processing errors before we begin.

You’ve made it this far! Thank you! We appreciate your thoughtfulness!

It is very common that we find crucial details are incorrect within the documents at the signing table. Now is a great time to check for any typos within your document. If you can catch these items now, way to go! You’ll have full confidence in your paperwork when we meet. 

Common typographical errors:

  • Everyone’s name spelled correctly within the document and beneath the signature lines?
  • How about other important identifying information ( Property address, terms, etc.)
Common document conditions for processing:

“Sign your signature exactly as your name appears on the document” is common for deeds and/or loan documents. Be prepared for unique signing conditions like these at the appointment. This is very common and often a hard condition of your bank or county recorder for the processing of your transaction. Check in with your receiving agency to learn about any specific details they’re looking for when processing your docs. We’ll be mindful too!
