Trust, Lifecare, Estate Planning
Real Estate Documents and Closings
Whether it is a single real estate document such as a Deed, or a full set of mortgage documents, I will travel to your location to assist.
As a certified notary signing agent, I can assist with the last stage of the buying or selling process-- the signing and notarization of your purchase or sale documents. You may arrange with your title company to use your own mobile notary.
The title company or law firm typically emails me the file, which I print and bring to the signer for our appointment. If requested, I can scan the executed file, email it back to title via a secure file transfer method, and then ship the file via UPS or FedEx.
If you're signing for a property that is located in one of the five witness states (Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina), the Deed will require that signers have one or two witnesses present at the signing. The title company will tell you if the notary may act as one of the witnesses as well.

Deed of Trust
FHA/VA Loans... and more.

I can assist the attorney with notarizations at their office or travel to your home, hospital, assisted living or rehab facility if you or a family member are homebound or unable to travel. Several assisted living facilities in the Fairfax area have Emerald Mobile Notary Service on their list of preferred notaries.
Please call me 703-577-5484 If you would like to schedule a Power of Attorney signing for yourself or for a relative. This document requires more consideration in advance, and I can provide you with information and help with your questions.

Certificate of Trust
The more common notarized documents that we call "general notary work" are those not usually related to real estate or estate planning.
Just like the other documents though, having a well-trained notary is just as important. Examples of these are the Prenuptial Agreement, Travel Consent Form, or a Lease Agreement.
Travel Consent Form
Religious Exemption Form
"Each and every notary public plays a crucial role in combating identity theft.
They serve as our front line of defense and the public is safer because of the job they do." -Ken Salazar
Your Identification Requirements and Your Notary Appointment
Acceptable Forms of Identification
According to Virginia law, signers must personally appear before the notary and present a government-issued photo identification. The name on your ID must match the printed name on your document. The acceptable forms of identification in Virginia are as follows:
1. United States passport
2. United States passport card
3. Certificate of United States citizenship
4. Certificate of naturalization
5. Foreign passport
6. United States green card with photograph
7. State-issued driver's license
8. State-issued identification card
9. United States military identification card
Coherent and Alert Signer
If you are arranging for a loved one or family member to sign a legal document, that person must be coherent, aware, and be able to communicate with the notary. It is the notary's job to determine that the signer shows an understanding of the document and a willingness to sign. This is for the protection of the individual doing the signing. You can find more information regarding elderly signers in the Frequently Asked Questions page.
When Can you Sign your Documents?
You should fill in all blank spaces in the document before the notary arrives, but please do not inital or sign your documents until you are in the presence of the notary.
If you Have Questions about Your Documents
The notary public can give you general information but is unable to provide legal advice. Since a notary public is not duly trained or certified to practice law, we are unable to provide assistance in prescribing or determining the particular document a customer may need; we cannot select the type of notarization or certificate for a given document; and we cannot prepare a document or give advice on completing a document.
My Notary Work and Goals
I didn't know mobile notary work existed until a few years ago, when I was the signer at my
own refinance appointment, and a skilled notary signing agent handled the closing.
Now, as the owner of Emerald Mobile Notary Service, I'm dedicated to becoming one of the most trusted and skilled notaries in the area. I've taken specialized training in lifecare and estate planning documents and enjoy that work. I find it rewarding to assist people who are elderly or unable to travel, and I have become a regular notary at several healthcare facilities.
As of May 2023, I'm certified to handle real estate closings using IPEN technology, which
is in-person electronic notarization. At an IPEN signing, we use the SurfacePro Tablet and a stylus. This eliminates the need to print out large real estate files. This makes it much more efficient, not only because no paper is used, but errors can now be automatically avoided with the stroke of a button.
Having taken 150+ hours of Notary Stars training (www.notarystars.com) and completed the Notary2Pro Elite program (www.notary2pro.com), I also assist title and escrow clients with real estate closings. It is my aim to provide the buyer or seller with a smooth signing experience. I am confident that with my thorough preparation and attention to detail, I'm giving the signers the most accurate summaries of their real estate documents and getting their questions answered while we're still at the table.
Notary Training and Certifications
The four training programs I've completed below are the most reputable ones there are.
As of 2023, I'm participating in my third year of continuing education with Notary Stars live online training sessions. I am committed to continuing my education for the duration of my commission.
