I just received a signing from Tamios. The pay seems good but the web site is not user friendly. Has anyone worked for this company? Anything at all would be helpful
Timios Title has been around a long time and recently were bought by some Chinese outfit, but they pay well when they have to. They send offers on a ‘take it or leave it’ basis & do not allow counter-offers. Sooo, you ignore 1st cheap offer & wait 'til they meet what you require & hope you get lucky with later/higher ones.
I’ve completed several signing for Timios and as @Arichter stated, they do not usually negotiate pricing. The signings I have completed for them are usually 173 pages, one set for the signing and one set to be left with the borrower.
the pay for me in California was better then Coast2Coast so I’ll take it
Over the years, I’ve completed Signing Orders for Timios. You’ll need to negotiate to achieve a fair rate of remuneration.
Regarding payment turnaround time, typically it’s been 4 weeks (sometimes 6 weeks), which is outside the parameters of my business model for receipt of payment.
There is a plethora of additional info on Timios within these threads (see url below) & would be great knowledge to gain vicariously: Search results for 'timios' - Notary Cafe Forums
Thank you for that additional information, I will definitely check that out myself.
Definitely check them out, don’t hold your breath, and don’t put all your eggs in their basket. Do connect with others.
Timios in California usually offers $90 a loan packet which requires two copies, no scan backs and has numerous notarizations required. Now with Corona they are amenable to paying higher rates. I wait until I get a personal email and then reply with my rate. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t. I justify by saying my base rate is X, there is Y required for Jumbo packages or Trust signings and I charge Z for traveling over 20 miles. I have always been paid for my work with them but owing to how large their packets are, I do one or two a week for them at my rate.
I have been working with TImios for two years now. They pay well, and on time, it’s hard to get them on the phone when you have an issue. But other than that it’s decent pay for decent work. I have fulfilled MANY jobs with them on the regular.
Thank you all for the insight.
I think their pay is low so I don’t do signings for them. $90 is all I ever see them offer. Least I take is $125. My area coverage is a far distance because I live in the foothills hills. No residential driving at all.
I have done a ton of signings for Timios and, yes, to many of the comments to timely payments and amount. As far as the platform goes I find it very good once I got used to it. I might point out is to be sure, if you have to Fax back docs, do not close out the signing before you do so. The platform will not accept them if it is closed. That is the only glitch I have had with them.
Liars and cheats. Find business elsewhere.
so at $90 they are higher the Coast2Coast which is the one that I seem to be getting plus they are local
can you explain what you mean by liars and cheats? what happened?
Hi, I’ve had nothing but good experience with Timios.
They are a good company, well organized, docs on time and I can’t remember ever having to scan the docs. However, they do pay on the low side and use a take-it-or-leave-it approach. Just put them in your basket of signing providers and use them to your advantage. If I have not had a signing in several days or my afternoon is open after an early signing and Timios comes along I will happily use them as a filler, not my bread and butter.
This is true of most, not all, signing companies. They can be stellar in some ways and fall short in others. Play them for their strengths like a sports team manager.
@kenmig47 - same here, I have never had to scan the docs for Timios, only drop them with provided shipping label. And agreed, they do pay on the low side with not much/no negotiation in the pay. I am like you, I use them as “filler”.
then haven’t asked to scan them back but I do anyway because it usually late in the day and then send them off the next day
