Discover fail-proof methods to complete the notarization of each loan package.   A Loan Signing Agent notarizes loan packages for clients who are purchasing or refinancing homes. In our seminar, you’ll learn simple steps to ensure success with each client. We’ll cover document preparation and effective communication before, during, and after the signing. We’ll also teach you how to usher clients through the process with the awareness of which issues you are allowed to address or which ones you must refer to the lender. Unlike most online loan signing classes that only teach you to recognize documents, our seminar also gives you hands-on, practical experience that is invaluable to new agents.
