|As do we all, and yes you are correct, I rarely get offers below my fee as they are blocked. The ones that come close I try and get them to where I am at, and usually, they will not get back, so no loss, and not my regular clienteleanyway, so I rarely engage. Why try and get an $85.00 closing up past the $125 mark? It's not like we are short of notaries in FL They won't take it, and unless I see Vendor Pay on SD, I don't bother, as I do not take that risk with anyone new. There are plenty of newbies FL notaries who do $85.00 closings with scans, no scans, who will wait 3 months to get paid, so it's beating a dead horse. If they want quality, they don't make those ridiculous offers to me.|
I have my clientele and it's not doing $85.00 loans from big box, or others at that price. I am not out to gain new mediocre clients who I have to dicker like at a yard sale or flea market to get that closing. Stupidness is that we encourage people to do this, which trains these companies to start lower offers. No other business does this. Next time you need an electrician or plumber, try it and see how that works for you, but it works for notaries because we always tell them to counter and play those games. Just me and how I operate.
