I get tons of work from Notary Cafe, only second to 123 and the fee is VERY reasonable.

I'd LOVE to know the companies that use them - it's SO EASY to sign up if you have a NC account.

Two new ones I added are: Wise Settlement Services and Archimerc LLC

I received an order a few weeks ago as a result of my free posting at Notary Cafe. On that basis I subscribed to Notary Cafe (1 order pays for the subscription). The very next day I received another order from Notary Cafe.

I signed up with Notary Cafe in January and have not received any calls from their site. when I search notaries in Oregon, their site is not even in the search results.

I have 4 great companies that found me directly on NotaryCafe.com -- well worth the money to be a member in my opinion

Warmly,

I've noticed several of the signing companies I work with have a connection with NotaryCafe--same look and any changes made to one changes the other.

So, I think NotaryCafe is helping SS find me. Hopefully it also raises my search rating too.

I think that notarycafe.com is still a good website to advertise on
but remember this is a website along with others that you need to update your profile every month.

I like the way their website is setup. I spoke to the owner several times and he is very helpful. Unfortunately I have not received any calls from my listing on their site. I can't say that it's paid for itself. I don't think I will renew my listing there any time soon.

I don't agree that the notaries on Notary Cafe are "ranked" based upon the number of closures done. That would be up to the person viewing the data. Instead, it appears as though they are found using the traditional zip code search. Other information may assist a scheduler in finding an active notary. The data provides a percentage based upon how complete the notary profile is (that is mentioned on many sites as important), whether the notary is certified or not (I have no idea what organizations they accept certification from - but the one from 123 is likely more recognized as an achievement than alphabets'), how many title companies or others use the notary (currently have them on a personal list) and yes, how many closures have been completed in the last 3 and last 12 months. What is interesting to me is that there is not much relationship based upon the number of lists that someone is on compared to the closings completed. For instance, one notary may be on only 2 lists but has 30 closed loans in the last year, while another is on 12 lists and has completed only 10. Hopefully, there is more closings being assigned from other sources as I doubt that anyone will get by on 30 per year. Other information is provided as well. I don't see the number of closures completed as a ranking so much as whether the notary is active or not. If they are very active, for a lot of people, and do not have any feedback, I see that as significant.

I don't receive many calls from my listing on Notary Cafe, but I receive enough to warrant maintaining a listing there. Iíve read many times of Notaries that have accomplished 5,500 closings. However, the experience they have may have been limited to one or two companies. When operating in more rural areas, it is important that the notary has a broad range of experience as there are many nuances to the documents that may not be noticed by a notary with limited, one company closings.

I have major heartburn over the scoring of a signing agent based on how many assignments they have completed for the companies listed by any website. Why? Signing agents in urban areas certainly will have more opportunities than those in rural areas. And those with less competition may have more opportunities than those with a very long list of competitors. Finally, a 'low' count of assignments on one website, may not be reflective of actual performance.

IMO, in our community, attempting to analyze and rank signing agents, with blinders on, is paramount to herding cats.

I like this website and have gotten many assignments.

I don't think any company is going to openly rate a loan signer on either notarycafe.com or 123notary. I think this feature is meaningless.

The reason to do the public notary work feature (pay $24.95 per year) is to choose 4 additional zip codes to be included in additional to your office zip code, that is the default zipcode.

I know my office zip code 92507 has very few loan signings available because it includes the University of California and mostly industrial and retail areas.

Notary Cafe has some different features that are interesting. For instance, they yielded to the pressure to allow for comments regarding individual notaries available long before 123 did. But, like 123, very few, if any, actual comments have been made per notary if you search the various "public" areas.

One item that may be useful to those needing notaries is the "scoreboard" connection to the website by various vendors and how many of them have the notary on a "personal list." Another is how many assignments the notary has been provided from the site over the last 12 months - and over the last 3 months - and if any of them warranted a comment. It is easy to see how much work has picked up when you compare the last three months with the entire last year.

Not very many notaries have information provided "publicly." If you arn't public, very few can view anything about you - as information is apparently only open to "the vendors."

I've recieved work from my listing at NotaryCafe too. Good thing since my membership renews are all coming due and since the slowdown, I plan to be pretty picky about who gets my money.

I joined NotaryCafe because one of my regular ss uses their format. I now have several companies working from that site. The logon to pick up docs, do completion reports, etc. is just the greatest thing I have dealt with in this business so far.
