Subject: I'm So Excited and I Just Can't Hide It!
Good Evening Ms. Harris,
Today, I passed the Title Producer exam and I was so glad to see that four-letter word, "Pass" on the screen as this was not (ouch) my first time taking the test. You mentioned repeatedly, the importance of reading each question carefully; so, I took my time to avoid getting tripped up with the word "Except" in the question that may change the answer. :) One million "Thank Yous" to you for your excellent training and availability. I am very appreciative and look forward to my next steps.

Subject: PASSED TIPIC EXAM
Dear Ms. Harris,
I am excited to inform you that I have successfully passed my Title Exam and want to thank you for everything you have done to help support me throughout this endeavor. I had to have knee surgery several months after my husband had his back surgery. So as you can imagine, it was a challenge; but I made it because through it all I stayed focused and determined to accomplish what we started. I am looking forward to what comes next. Sincerely, Priscilla Romos-Ruffin

Hello Ms. Harris,
I was able to pass my exam on the first go round (Fantastic)! I was so excited when I submitted my exam and the word “PASSED” appeared. But I could not have done it without your help and the help of my fellow classmates. Working with my study group really paid off. We meet twice a week for 2 hours each night. We went over the Trusted Agent Services Handbook from beginning to end. We reviewed all the tests in the handbook in addition to the questions given to us on the last day of class. Studying the Quizlet assignments also helped. **We focused on understanding the concept and not just memorizing the answer.** Going over the definitions also paid off. Knowing the meaning of the words made it easier to understand some of the questions.
You must read the question and sometimes read it twice. There are a lot of questions that contain the word “expect”, so be prepared. Strike through the ones you know are incorrect narrow down the choices then make a decision. Although you can flag a question and go back to it, don’t. Your first answer is always your best answer. Was the test easy no, but following your instructions really paid off.
You totally prepared us for the exam and the suggestion of study groups was a plus. I did not think I needed to be a part of a study group in the beginning, but it really paid off. I highly recommend it.
Ms. Harris thank you again for sharing your knowledge and experience with us. And for always being there when we had questions. Looking forward to attending my CE classes with you. You are a ‘Great Teacher’.

God is great!! I received an 84% on my second attempt! I was in your January class, but when the course ended, I did not study seriously until June. I did a study group but realized that I needed more time to study. In June, I studied passively so when I attempted the TIPIC exam on July 1st, I received a 61%. I was proud of myself because I barely studied. I committed to more preparation in July. I read the course book two times, answered all the Quizlet questions, and did flashcards. The questions were straightforward and easy. Better yet, some of the exam questions were in the course manual. Thank you for your help.

It will answer your questions: "What training do I need?", "What equipment should I purchase?", "How do I become a notary?", "Do I need training as a notary?", "What are the Secretary of State's requirements?", "What are the Maryland Insurance Administration requirements?", "How much money can I make?", and more.

A TIPIC must be commissioned as a Notary Public in Maryland in order to render services independently which may result in the issuance of a title insurance contract. Consequently, a Notary Public must meet the title licensing requirement in order to perform official duties at real estate closings or settlements.
As an independent contractor, the TIPIC is contracted by a "closing agent" to ensure that real estate loan products properly signed by the client, notarized by the notary and returned for processing in a timely manner. As an independent contractor, the TIPIC is also responsible for filing the proper tax forms with IRS.
The Home Loan Process
1. The borrower initiates the loan by contacting the lender and applying for the loan.
2. The lender processes the loan, contacts the closing agent, and funds the loan.
3. The closing agent, an independent third party authorized by the lender, performs the closing duties on the loan and acts as an implementer for the borrowers, often contracting Notary Signing Agents directly or indirectly through a signing service.
