Except for a 10-yr period where I had no need to maintain a commission, I have been a notary public since approximately 1976. I started performing mortgage company field services in August 2007. One of my field services customers requested I obtain a notary commission so as to perform mobile notary services for various homeowners who need mortgage re-finance documents notarized. I will travel to perform mobile notary services in Zip Codes 423xx and 424xx. I will also consider other areas on a case-by-case basis, depending on the situation and required services.
