I've been certified as a signing agent for 2 years, but only just started actively working in the last 6 months or so. I had experience before that, though, notarizing long-distance home sales / purchase for military clients in my area. (When their bank sent them the packet directly and said, "go find a notary," I was the one in the neighborhood to do it for them.)
So, I guess, as with all things, "Good things come to those who wait." Best of luck, Kbeck!
