Loan Signing Courses Descriptions

These documents were chosen because of either their importance, the amount of confusion and questions they generate, or the frequency that borrowers can't figure out where to sign them. Most other documents in the loan packages will not be discussed because they are either 1. Too difficult to explain properly unless you are the escrow officer or lender working on that particular loan. 2. Self explanatory. Or 3. Not very critical documents. The documents not discussed generally don't generate many questions.

The NEW interactive online workbook contains the following -

The interactive workbook contains:

  • 176 practice questions ( some are multiple choice and some are short answer )
  • 14 essay questions that give immediate feedback.
  • 5 interactive right to cancel drills
  • 2 interactive signature affidavit drills
  • 6 interactive practice loan signings.

Please read below for details about all of the various questions and drills.

Please visit the sample loan signing course at www.123ecourses.com and enter the username "sample" and password "sample". Login, and then visit some of the chapters and especially visit the workbook ( chapter 11 in the sample ). You can try some of the multiple choice, short answer, essay, and real loan doc practice signings to see what a great learning tool our system is to use.

Note: If you purchased an online OR physical version of the course, you will receive an online interactive workbook and a physical course book. Click here for details.

The interactive workbook has 176 multiple and/or short answer questions -
divided into various sections. There is one section for each of the first four chapters of the loan signing course with questions pertinent to each chapter. There are also three practice tests for the certification exam in one section. There are several other sections in the workbook not particular to any particular chapter with more questions.

There are 14 thought provoking essay questions -
with teacher answers available within half a second after you submit your completed essay.

There are 5 right to cancel drills -
each with a very different and challenging scenario. You simply click and drag the right answers from the right of the screen into the blanks on the simulated and virtual right to cancel. The computer will let you know immediately if you made a mistake as soon as you raise your finger from the mouse.

There are 2 signature affidavit drills -
The purpose of these is more to understand how to do the wording in the acknowledgment section of the form. Just click and drag the correct answers.

There are 6 practice loan signings -
Practice 1, and 2 have journal practice which is very important because many new notaries do not know exactly how to fill out their journal in all circumstances. The other ones are practices only for loan documents. You can practice filing them out and putting the initials, signatures, and other information in the right places. Each practice will have a different type of problem or difficulty which you will have to resolve.

This is how the computer gives you immediate feedback and interactive teaching -
After you complete several questions with a multiple choice answer or short answer, you can click on the words "Submit and review" and the computer will immediately tell you what the correct answer was. If it was a short answer, then the computer will show you the short answer that the teacher wrote and you can compare that to what you wrote. If it is the same or almost the same ( making allowances for different styles of verbiage ) then you can consider yourself to have written a correct answer. If there is some substantial difference in the meaning of what you wrote. Then try to remember what you did wrong and try the practice drill again.

On essay questions, you can write your answer of several hundred characters, and then press submit to see what the teacher answer is. If you are close, then you got it right. Otherwise, make a note of what you did wrong and review it periodically.

That's all. Please enjoy your course.

List of testimonials about our loan signing courses.

All of the information in the marketing course and loan signing course was right on the money. I only wish I had followed it verbatim from the day I received the course. That would have saved me months of experimentation and trial and error experience. Jeremy's course is the fast track to begin a loan signing career and getting your cash flow started now!!!
Robert Getter

Good Morning Jeremy
I wanted to drop you a little note just to let you know how wonderful your course is. You have presented things in a concise easy to follow format. It is very well written and gets straight to the basics. it gives you what you need to know, when you need to know it! I found the course so very helpful, much more so than the original loan signing course I took (from a different company). I am now because of your course, feeling much more confident in my abilities as a loan signer.. for this I truly thank you!! Keep up the good work. Again, I cannot express it enough, THANKS for everything!!!
Carmen (from Los Angeles, CA)

I was very impressed with the 123notary.com courses. They were condensed, informative, to the point, and full of extra tips and hints. I feel my money was very well spent, and I recommend the 123 notary courses 100%.
Linda Pritt

Please use me as a reference. I have gotten 75+ jobs and referrals from 123notary.com. I found the course to be very informative. I thought I knew everything until I completed the course.
Janya Carlson - Las Vegas, NV.

Hi Jeremy,
I joined 123notary.com about two weeks ago after talking to you on the phone. I'm a notary in western North Carolina. I got called today to do a signing and the lady said she got my name from you - THANKS!! I am really enjoying the course I bought from you; it has some great information. Have a great day.
Wanda Crawford.

Although I have been doing signings for several months I decided to take the most basic course through 123notary.com which is the 30 minute loan signing course to increase my knowledge of loan papers. Several weeks after I passed the test a signing company interviewed me over the phone to determine what I know about signing documents. This 30 minute loan signing course gave me the basic terms so I could answer the questions with confidence.
Jim Zilinsky

I found this course to be very helpful and very explanatory and if I had any questions, I could call 123notary.com for prompt answers.
Ralph Wedertz

I thought your book was very thorough, informative and accurate, and prepared me well for the certification test.
John Palfrey
Ormond Bend, FL

Note: The 30 minute course is still offered although it is not advertised online anymore due to limited space on the loan signing course page.


Testimonials about the signing company list.

Sorry that we don't have more referrals, we have not sold this list to that many people yet although sales of the list are better than ever this month because many people purchased the list in a combo.

I have found business in various ways, one being Jeremy's list of signing companies that I purchased from your site. That list was very helpful in getting started. You are more than welcome to use this testimonial if you like.
Jim Zilinsky

What do loan signers make?

Commissioned vs. Certified. What do these words mean? Let me first clear up some semantics that causes confusion.
You become "Commissioned" as a notary public by your state. Being a commissioned notary is a government made distinction and office. Being "Commissioned" as a notary is mandatory to do any notary or loan signing work.
Being "Certified" as a loan signer is optional, and is not recognized by any state government. Certification is done through various notary web sites such as 123notary.com. 123notary.com Certification is a huge plus and is recognized by most (but not all) companies that use notaries.

To be a loan signer, you must first become a notary. Only your state government can give you a notary commission. You don't need to be certified as a loan signer, although you must be "Commissioned" (that is the correct term by the way) as a notary public. Being a certified loan signer is a big plus because it means that you have studied the subject and passed a test. Many of the notary web sites have their own certification process and it is upsetting to many notaries to have to be re-certified so many times.

Which certification is better?
If you are on 123notary.com, then the 123notary.com certification is the best. If you are on NASA, then their's is the best, etc. Get certified by whomever you advertise with. If you are on five sites, then it is wise to be certified by all five even though there is a cost. If you are serious about the business, these small fees and expenditures of your time will seem insignificant in the long run.

What do loan signers make?
Loan signers generally make between $50 and $150 per signing. Occasionally, people make $40 or $45, or above $150, but it is rare. The majority of signing companies pay $50 per signing. Many pay $60 and $75 too, but not as many as the ones who pay $50. Title, escrow, and lenders often have a more flexible budget to pay notaries. Many will pay a sliding scale, or $75 to $150.

How does the amount companies pay vary?
The amount companies pay depends on them and not so much on the notary. Some companies have a fixed amount they pay, and no amount of bargaining will change their point of view. Others bargain, and some only pay top dollar like $125 per signing or $150. To get top dollar from companies and keep them as clients, you should be one of the best service providers, otherwise, the top paying clients won't keep you for long or even use you in the first place. Most high paying jobs are gotten from internet advertising. There is a much greater supply of low paying jobs which can be gotten from the notary calling companies.

What can I expect to make as a beginner?
Beginners typically get mostly $50 jobs with some higher paying ones thrown in too.
A beginner can expect to make $3000 to $4000 the second, third month (if they are full time) while they are gaining experience and contacts. After that, if the notary is serious about the business, they can make $4000 and up. It will require a commitment of 6 days per week whenever the clients need they notary (night or day).

What do the top paid notaries do to get top pay?
Here is what the top paid notaries do to make good money. If a notary makes many stops in a day and is an efficient worker and scheduler, they can make $300 in a day. All it takes is 6 jobs. To get lots of jobs every day, a notary must be access able by phone all the time and be ready all the time to work. The more the notary says yes, the more people will want to use them (assuming the quality of the notary's work is good). You will need to always have your schedule with you and be ready to book appointments when you are driving, sleeping, swimming, etc. You have to always be ready to schedule things. It is unsafe to write when you are driving, so pull over to write down the appointment time.

Tip, when you are driving, bring a handheld tape recorder to take the borrower information so you don't have to pull over when you are in a hurry. When you arrive at your destination, you can replay the tape, and write down the information in your schedule book.

As with any other business, appointments get made, and broken all the time. You have to be a non-stop scheduling machine to make serious money in this business. Good schedulers can make $600 in a good day doing loan signing.

Another technique for getting high pay.
Another technique notaries use is to only work for higher pay. This allows them to take less jobs and still make good money. More experienced notaries can get away with charging more because they have a good client base. Sometimes higher pay will require them to go farther. This technique is good for people who want to do the minimum amount of scheduling and billing. The marketing course (which is sold separately AND as a chapter of all of the loan signing courses goes into detail about how to get top paying jobs.

What are the best ways to get business?
The best way to get business is to advertise heavily on internet notary directories like 123notary.com and other ones too. Another way to get business is to get a list(s) of signing companies and cold call them. Get on their databases, and pester them for work every so often. 123notary.com sells a list of 50+ signing companies that has helped many beginners to get a jump start to making around $4000 per month.

I hope this answers everybody's questions about how much notaries make.

Teacher Evaluation of the Workbook. - Not sold separately.

This evaluation is very important. If you are doing your work wrong, I will catch you and teach you how to do it correctly. Many notaries do their journal entries completely wrong. You can lose your commission if you get caught by the authorities keeping your journal incorrectly or incompletely. Many notaries fill out acknowledgment forms in ways that can ruin a loan. I will catch your mistake before you ruin a real loan and lose a good client.

I will spend about 45 minutes writing point by point notes about whatever you did incorrectly. Notes will be typed and in a point by point style (numbered).

Here is an example:

1. The journal entry #2 is incorrect because it did not contain the correct name of the document (which is the deed of trust) and did not specify if it was an acknowledged signature or a Jurat

2. Journal entry #4 is missing a thumbprint which is required by CA law on all Deeds for real estate.

3. On practice #3, the initials should be ABC, not AC because the signer is signing with his middle initial included.

This evaluation will be done by correspondence through the mail (not by phone). Simply mail your completed work in to me and I will mail it back when I am done with my review of it. I usually only need two to three days before I send it back.

Completed evaluations will be sent by mail two or three days after I receive your completed workbook.

The evaluations are not sold separately. They are only available in combo #3.

If you have any questions, please call 888-838-1458.
