We're Opening the Notarize Platform, Adding 1,000 Notaries

At Notarize, we’ve seen firsthand how the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is throwing the worlds of real estate and notary into crisis. The sacred notarial process – rooted in face-to-face interaction for hundreds of years – cannot function amidst a life-threatening pandemic. Industries that rely upon notaries are grinding to a halt.

To help solve the challenge of our time, we are opening the Notarize platform to commissioned notaries and title agents to meet the surge in demand for online notarizations.

Notarize Welcomes LogMeIn's Brian Mirek as Vice President of Sales

When we first launched Notarize, we had an incredible amount of inbound interest. From the biggest banks and lenders in the country, to any industry that depends on thousands of notarized documents each year, it seemed that we were discovering a new use case each day. While we couldn't meet those inbound requests at the time, we knew that once we could scale while getting the customer experience right, we would be an entirely different company. Fast forward a few years later, and not only do we have the biggest lenders in the country as customers, including Guaranteed Rate, but thousands of businesses across nearly every industry now run on Notarize.

Now, we're focused on scale. To help us build our go-to-market strategy and accelerate our sales engine, I'm excited to share that Brian Mirek is joining Notarize as our Vice President of Sales.
