Notary of the Month
Notary Direct is proud to announce our "Notary of the Month" for the month of March, 2017.
This program recognizes Notaries for their performance, dedication, and outstanding display of professionalism. Each month a Notary will be selected as the recipient of this award. This person will be featured on our website, advertised on our social media pages and receive a personalized Notary Acts Journal.
This month, we are proud to recognize Robert Wolper.
I live in Colorado with my wife of 40+ years. We have two grown children and three grandchildren. I enjoy hiking, biking, playing harmonica (ok, trying to play the harmonica), spending time with my family, and beach vacations.
What made you decide to become a Notary Public and how long have you been doing it for?
My wife is in the mortgage business and suggested I might enjoy doing real estate closings. My first signing for Notary Direct was February, 2016.
If you had to guess, about how many signings have you done?
In all I've done about 300 signings in a little over 13 months.
In your opinion, what is the most important trait that one must possess to be a successful notary?
If I had to pick just one, I'd say attention to detail. Promptness; professionalism, patience, courteousness, and friendliness are important as well.
What has been your favorite customer service moment/interaction while at the signing table?
My most bizarre signing was in a hair salon with a masseuse who used her massage bed as a signing table. We had to pass a clipboard back and forth to sign the papers. My favorite customer service interactions are when signers express their appreciation for making the process go smoothly and efficiently. It's very gratifying.
Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for new or aspiring Notaries?
I was able to observe a number of signings before doing my own for the first time. Doing that and practicing my scripts in front of my wife was extremely beneficial in helping build confidence (another very important trait).

Why Notary Direct?
Notary Direct was the first signing company to hire me and they've been great to work with ever since. Everyone has been helpful and supportive. Getting to know several folks in the FL and CA offices has been an added bonus. Thanks Notary Direct for your business and for honoring me as Notary of the Month!
