Lawrence L., Pleasanton, CA

I found Helen on Yelp and was impressed with the reviews. I needed notary services and decided to call her. She has been extremely accommodating, is very professional and does a wonderful job. She will be my go-to person for notary services.

Kimberly H., Livermore, CA

The nicest and most efficient local notaries in the area. Helen’s so flexible – she’s mobile and has a office in downtown Pleasanton too. We’re dealt with Helen on numerous occasions and its always a pleasure doing business with her. Our “go-to” notary in town !! Highly recommended.

Rick L., Pleasanton, CA

I am a “support-local-businesses” guy and almost never go out shopping extensively for anything once I know that there is a local business that can help me. I had to get some documents notarized. Called up Totally Notary. From the first communication we had, I felt completely assured and convinced that the job would be done professionally. Helen’s alacrity, professionalism and immaculate attention to details is impressive. In fact I have some other documents to be notarized today. Guess where I am going? Totally Notary

Sanjay S., Pleasanton, CA

I found Helen to be kind, patient, and professional when my mother in law recently needed notary services. She explained and guided her through all the paperwork and did not rush her. She will be the “go to” as a local notary for our family moving forward.

Leisa G., Pleasanton, CA

Helen is a rockstar and goes above and beyond. She saved me a lot of grief with the DMV on some forms that needed to be notarized. Thank you!

Chris K., Corona, CA

Early on a Monday morning we needed to get some docs notarized and on their way right away.  A good friend in Real Estate gave me Totally Notary’s number and within the hour Helen was graciously and professionally getting our docs signed and notarized.  Next time we need notary services Helen will get our call.
