    Judith ("Judi") Lawrence Hi Ladies in Fairfax County: So one might wonder, why is a notary company located in Pennsylvania writing to people based in Fairfax County? The answer is simple … we want to help any of your Pennsylvania clients. We offer 24/7/365 Notary Services including weekends and holidays. One of the most important ways we can assist you is if you have a client who is vacationing or traveling in Pennsylvania and needs to close on an agreement or a property back in Fairfax County. You would just call Center City Notary at 215-870-3103 and ask us about our “Power Closing”. Our expert notaries will make sure the documents are signed and properly notarized. We will then scan the documents and email them to whomever you designate back in Fairfax County. That will include a Power of Attorney so that a representative can handle the closing. Important to note that the Power of Attorney is specific to the precise closing and cannot be used for anything else. The documents can then be overnighted. This can be done at our location or at a location of your choice. We also handle Apostilles nationwide which you can read about on our website. In addition, please check out our website for other services including, but not limited to, I-9 Verifications, Contracts and Deeds. . Please feel free to message me for further information or just to say hi. Judith
