Notarize welcomes former Fannie Mae eMortgage head to the team

Notarization = Headache + Hassle. At least, that’s been the notarization reputation to date, thanks to tracking down a local notary, scheduling times and sorting through paperwork, often to find out the notary is no longer available or the document was completed incorrectly.

Eighteen months in, we’re receiving emails and Tweets of “Thank you!”s and “Finally!”s for creating a reliable, online solution. Our favorite: Notarize = The Future!

While we can all relate to our customers' stories here at home, it's extraordinary to think of the time and frustration we're saving people traveling and living abroad. For example, an American in Nigeria connected with Notarize - she would have otherwise needed to travel 10 hours by car to the US Embassy. This story repeats itself constantly.
