Currently, the Notarize platform is built so all notarizations are serviced by notaries who are on-staff with us. All notaries on our platform are employed by Notarize and they work from our offices in Texas and Virginia. By having the notaries be our direct employees, we can staff them 24/7/365 and ensure quality training and compliance checks. This also allows us to deliver a quality level of service to our business customers without them having to worry about the overhead and logistical concerns like E&O insurance. Our notaries are all certified by the National Notary Association.
In the future, we’ll likely open the platform for independent notaries to use the platform, but we aren't quite there yet.
If you are a notary in Virginia or Texas, and are interested in working for Notarize, you can learn more about our open roles here: notarize.com/careers.
I want to use the Notarize software to service my own clients
Below are a handful of the common questions from people who want to use the Notarize software to service their own clients.
I work at a title company or law firm. Can our own closers / notaries use the Notarize platform to do online closings themselves?
The short is: not yet. As of early 2020, all title documents are notarized by our on-staff notaries.
In November 2019, we announced a partnership with Florida Agency Network, to open our platform and empower title agents to perform their own online closings. Our product team is actively building this functionality because we receive this question from title agents often! After an initial beta period with Florida Agency Network, Notarize will open the platform to existing title agency customers. In the meantime, title agents join our platform and Notarize notaries complete online closings for our customers.
However, thousands of title agents use our platform and leverage our on-staff notaries to do online closings. This is possible even if your state doesn't have an active RON bill. This post explain how it works.
If you’d like to use Notarize for your own real estate closings, talk with our sales team so you can get started. We’ll first release the functionality for title agents to execute their own closings to our existing customers before the general public. Request a call with our sales team here.
I have my own notary / mobile notary business. Can I use the Notarize platform for my own notarizations?
As of now, the Notarize platform is built for our in-house notaries to complete notarizations and service our customers. If you’d like to get on the list to be notified when we open the platform to independent notaries, you can sign up here: notarize.com/notaries.
I’m a notary and I’m interested in working for Notarize.
Great! As mentioned earlier in this post, we hire notaries to work in our physical offices in Texas and Virginia. Open positions are listed here: notarize.com/careers.
