People become notaries public every day, but few choose to take their career to the next level by becoming a notary signing agent (NSA). With additional training, notaries can get certified to execute loan documents for mortgage companies, title companies, banks, and more. An NSA is a trained and certified professional that handles the notarization of documents in the real estate industry. NSAs serve as the critical final link between the banks and the borrower in completing loans. They are hired directly by title companies and signing services as independent contractors to ensure that real estate documents are executed properly by the borrower and notarized, and returned for processing. Notaries make a considerable amount of income from this line of work, in addition to general notary work. Getting certified as a signing agent is a great way to increase income potential either part-time or full-time.
