Mark is hands down one of the best notaries that we have had the pleasure to do business with! He was easy to comminucate with and always quick to respond. He also was able to work us into his schedule for a last minute same-day signing. Our clients stated he was very efficient and professional. He took care of everything: printing, signing, scanning, and document delivery to FedEx. I highly reccomend Mark for all of your notary needs!

Our experience with Mark went without a hiccup. We started on time. He was patient with us for security screening. Explained what we were seeing and allowed us time to read and review on our own. We received our copies promptly and 30 minutes after our appointment, I''m writing a review. No fuss, no muss!
Thank You!!

Katie Kramer on 05/03/2021 02:41:03 PM

I''m an older person, not good with PCs; but with Mr. Hodgkin''s hints was able to get video and sound working. Mark walked me through every step of the Notary Process with calm and time to help me out. All went just fine. He worked through the escrow office for his fees so I don''t have a detailed accounting, but the Notary web based process was very valuable to me.
Thank you Mr. Mark Hodgkins.

I cannot say enough positive things about Mark. He is always on time to the closings, and keeps us posted on how the closing is going. We highly recommend Mark, and we look forward to continuing to work with him as frequent as possible.

Karla Hampton on 02/01/2018 01:35:01 PM

Mark has on 2 occasions now gone above and beyond for us in our closings with him. Today he uploaded faxbacks that weren''t requested so that things could be expedited for the customer. Recently he went back out to help re-sign when a package was lost on a closing due to title''s error. He''s been a great closer to work with. Highly recommend him.

Theresa Hampton on 10/02/2017 08:04:20 AM

This was a last minute closing and Mark made it happen. Very happy with all the services, attentions and TLC given in this transaction.

Our company has used Mr. Hodgkins on several occasions and have found that he is professional, organized, efficient and very communicative with both our company, the Realtors and the customer on whom he is performing the services of notary. The documents are all signed properly, legibly and he provides excellent service in returning them via overnight mail the same day. We highly recommend him for any mobile closings/notarial services and we will continue to hire his services for all our future closings in the Tampa area.

Beth Blackburn on 01/03/2013 07:04:08 AM

I would absolutely recommend Mark to any company looking for a professional who knows his docs and does not hesitate to ask questions when something doesn't look right with them. Mark caught issues with the docs prior to the appt which later made for a smooth closing. We will definitely use Mark on every signing we have in the area. His knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism are the kind of qualities we look for in a notary.

Debbie Nicoletti on 20/02/2013 02:07:32 PM

I had a closing as Mark was the notary. The deal was very difficult. Mark went above and beyond the call of duty as kept his schedule open to accomodate my buyer and then drove the package to Federal Express to make sure that the deal closed on time. You should be vey proud to have Mark on your team!!

Positive reviews
Please feel free to give any of our notaries a positive review at any time if they did a good job

Neutral reviews
If a notary got the job done but made a small mistake, that counts as a neutral review. Please politely say it like it is.

Negative reviews protects all of its notaries from slander and unfair reviews since a bad review could effect their business.. If you had a bad experience with a notary, please express all pertinent facts clearly and politely in writing giving a clear description as to who all the parties are to the transaction; and what the notary did wrong. Our staff will do a two stage screening process for all negative reviews before posting. Step one - if there is any doubt about the review, we would contact the writer of the negative review by email, phone, or both, to make absolutely sure that the negative information is really true. Step two is to also give the notary a chance to write a rebuttle before deciding whether or not to post a negative review.
