To The Many Borrowers That Have Recently Asked

Question mark house
Yes, this is an easy job.

Yes, I make my own hours. Title companies and borrowers are always happy to work around my schedule, not theirs. I actually choose to be sitting at your kitchen table at 8 p.m. on a Friday.

No, I didn't need to do any marketing to become successful. I just signed up with the National Notary Association and watched the signings roll in.

No, I don't need any computer skills. Documents are rarely sent by e-mail. Lenders always have their loan packages ready several days in advance and almost always overnight the packages in a timely fashion. Appointments never change and docs are never late.

Yes, a six year old computer and dot matrix printer will work just fine in a pinch. No, I don't think a Commodore 64 will work.

Sure, I'd be happy to tell you how to get started doing the same thing in my area. I'll even give you a list of my best clients.

Yes, this is a great time for someone new to get into the business. Never you mind about all those media reports regarding the economy, the housing market, bankruptcies, foreclosures, and the like. They're just being negative.

Any more questions?

Yeah, and guess what I was doing yesterday at 8 p.m. on a Friday. Sitting at someone's kitchen table doing a last minute loan signing. I guess I jinxed myself.
