Before Booking...

Please ask yourself these questions


booking your appointment


Is the Signer Coherent and Aware?

  • Does the individual who will be signing the documents comprehend the contents and implications of the documents?
  • Can the Notary properly identify the individual appearing for notarization?
  • If the Notary cannot answer yes to both of these questions during your appointment, it is their duty to refuse the notarization.

Does the signer have valid identification?

  • The person who is having their signature notarized must have a current (unexpired) form of identification.
  • Valid identification types include:
    • Drivers License or ID card issued by the CA DMV or another state
    • US federal passport or passport card
    • US Military ID
    • Canadian or Mexican drivers license
  • If a valid ID cannot be provided, the signer can prove their identify by Credible Witness, which entails:
    • Two witnesses who know the signer must appear before the Notary at the time of notarization
    • These witnesses must each have valid identification
    • They must not be named in or have a financial interest in the document

What if the signer doesn't have a valid ID?

Here's what to expect!

Loan Signings

Signing loan documents for the sale, purchase, or refinance of a home can be a stressful situation. It's important to be in a comfortable environment with someone who can explain the documents in a way that puts you at ease.

Did you know that you can choose your own notary for real estate signings? If there is a title company involved in your transaction, they will offer to have you sign with them in-office or arrange for a mobile notary to meet you at the location of your choosing.

But how do you know that the notary you are assigned has training and experience with executing loan documents? I have completed over 500 real estate signings in the past 4 years. I am a member of the National Notary Association (NNA) and a Certified Notary Signing Agent through NNA. I am approved to work directly with Fidelity National Title, which means I am already familiar with our local escrow agents. Additionally, I am an Affiliate member of the Humboldt Association of Realtors. I would love to help you or your customers with their real estate transactions.

About Me

As a former librarian, I have always found it rewarding to connect people with the information they are seeking. I am extremely detail-oriented and I pride myself on providing customers with an excellent experience. Being a part of the Humboldt community is really important to me. I am interested in making lasting connections and forming relationships with the people I serve, rather than one-time transactions. I am always happy to answer any questions you have, and to share resources and information even if it doesn’t result in a notary transaction.

Me with my husband, Logan, and our dog, Walter
