My mom was a Commissioned Public Notary and had been from the start of her career as Real Estate Broker. When she added Insurance and Loan Doc signing to her list of services, her Public Notary signings increased. One year, she decided not to renew her commission and had regretted it. So, I felt that I should just hold onto my commission because of her regret. But, in reality, since my move to the Santa Cruz Mountains, a change of location, I found that the Public Notary service is not in as great a demand as in Marin and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. As of April, 2014 I retired as Public Notary.
