I was called by them yesterday to do a "long distance" signing. They haggled with me over the fee I was asking. I explained my justifications for the fee, on an island, have to take a ferry, the amount of just the travel time, etc. etc. and the girl said, "well, I see on mapquest/google maps you are only "xyz" miles away..." I said "I am sorry but it just is not cost effective for me to go for any less." She continued to say "But.." And finally I just hung up because she wanted to argue with me over the fee! I would rather her just say "ok, let me get back to you" but apparently they have had success with haggling and bargaining and low balling that they are comfortable doing this. Me...personally, I have not patience for this. My fee is fair and if they don't want to hire me...that's fine!! bwe
Did a job for them back on January 3, 2017. Have called and emailed regarding payment (It's now the evening of February 28) and nothing yet. Sorry Avanti, you just made my "never again" list.
I worked for them in February 2017. Still waiting for payment.
They won't even return my calls now.
Received a call for a 7 page Subordination Agreement from X Marks The Spot...I'm not going out for $60 no matter how little the package is. I'm also skeptical after reading the mixed reviews here and b/c they've never called before -- it was a last minute job. pjrager1
My first signing for X Marks the Spot was on 1/26/13. I found Missy really easy to work with and communication was great. I just received the payment for that signing on 2/9/13. I am happy about that and will work with them again. Christina H
April 8, 2013 - My check arrived today for the below closing.
Thanks everybody for your feedback. I just took my first closing for X Marks the Spot for this Sunday morning. Normally I try to not work on Sunday and would be extra angry if I didn't get paid but after reading your feedback, I feel more confident in this company.

I've been doing closings for Missy for several years. I've never had a problem. I wish she had more work to send me during these slow times, I really enjoy working with her. XMS is definitely one of the good ones. kristancrawford
Did my first closing on 12-15-13, everything went well no hand holding and they paid my fee. Received payment on 1-16-14. I will work for this company anytime. [:)]

I've done a dozen jobs for Missy Rowe--at X Marks the Spot--in the last two years. She's great to work with and pays quickly--I've had NO problems with them.
All positive for me. I've completed numerous (maybe 5) jobs for Missy and Zech, and have had no hassles or problems. Missy always responds to calls or emails, so if you didn't get a call or email, you probably called the wrong number.
I give X Marks the Spot two thumbs up.[:D]
I found Missy and Zech Rowe to be professional, knowledgeable, available, and responsible. They are as serious about their business as I am mine and they paid promptly. For the people who have had trouble faxing their W-9 info, could you email attach it instead?

Ilene - Thanks so much - It is nice to hear about the good ones from another notary. With so many companies having problems right now - they should be proud to receive your comments.
Yes, it is and fortunately there are still quite a few good ones hanging on during this bleak time. Too bad they don't cover AZ.
Gregg at Accountable Agents is great to work for, very pleasant and great at paying. They pay the 5th of each month which is fine with me, I know that when I check my mail on the 8th or 9th I no I will have a check in there.

They are an excellent company to work for, and always pay on time. I have done lots of loans for them!
The Accountable Agents are awesome to work with. I worked for Ray as long as eight years ago when he was with The Rose.They have a top notch business with top notch employees. They are one of my core companies to work for and hope to work with them for years to come. novice41
Just did my first signing with them. Wrong address on confirmation sheet (good thing I confirm that during the call), but seemed like a decent business model. Pleasant people, clearly stated expectations, good website, decent rate. KHSTjudi
Great company, always fair and respectful. I never have to ask about fees or terms. They pay Net 30.

This is a fairly new company for me to work with. They always tell me their client demands a no contact from me ahead of signing. They stress that I am NOT to call to confirm appointment. This makes me uncomfortable. Is this normal for them or you? Thank you for your response.
No worries with this company. Very easy to deal with and contact. The "no confirm" is not unusual.
Hello, Can I be activated in the refer a friend program?
quote:Originally posted by jbelmont 123notary has had a referral system for a long time. Not all of our notaries understand how it works. First, you need to be activated, and we can activate your listing upon request. Then, just login to your listing and click where it says, refer-a-friend. Just input the email address and a quick note, and then when that person signs up, you earn points. Points can be cashed in for discounts, free courses, and gift certificates.
Anyone getting business from this company?
I was last year, before they started requiring background checks. I sent them my background check and they still have not responded.
They get your info from Notary Cafe and contact you by phone. I did about 6 signings for them last year. They require faxbacks and charge a little low for everything. They paid right at 60 days each time.
