From The CEO: Title, Escrow Industries Facing Shortage Of Qualified SIgning Agents

Tom-Heymann-Web.jpgThis week an important fact came to light: The title and escrow industries are facing a serious shortage of qualified Notary Signing Agents, and they are actively seeking the help of NNA certified Notaries. I learned this at the Mortgage Bankers Association’s annual Conference in Chicago, where I had traveled to represent Notaries everywhere and learn about the future of the real estate industry.

The NNA was the only Notary organization at this Conference, and our booth was a popular stopping point for title and escrow executives to report the NSA shortage, and to seek our assistance in finding a solution. Top industry leaders reported that sales and lending activity is on a serious upswing across the country, even though credit remains tight due to new government regulations.

You’ll hear much more about my conversations in the coming weeks, but the bottom line is the NNA’s nationwide community of Notaries needs to help fill this void. If you’re interested in training to be an NSA, visit our web site for more details.

Tom Heymann, President & CEO

Not too surprised, they don't pay enough! You shouldn't at all be surprised, it's as clear as day from out on the field why this is no longer lucrative. The greedy people at the top don't want to pay what our services are worth. The potential liability is also too great for anyone to assume when they're not paid enough per signing.
