Statement of Information
BASU opened for business as “On Call Notary Service” in 1994 in Marin County by Eric and Allison Stone to provide convenient mobile notary services at an affordable price. Based on the demanding work and family schedules of many people living in the Bay Area of Northern California and the support of local Title & Mortgage Companies, On Call Notary Service expanded their operations by establishing a loan document accommodation signing service (Bay Area Sign-Ups) in 1996. In 1999, Bay Area Sign-Ups became a statewide loan document signing company. Currently, BASU services all of California & Nevada along with the major Metro areas of Arizona.
In 2008, Bay Area Sign-Ups the statewide accommodation signing service went through a brand change to become: BASU Your Signing Partner. This branding change coincided with a new domain name for BASU’s website: BASUnow.com
Operating from our primary office in Southern California BASU utilizes a contracted team of nearly 500 Notary Closing agents, covered by a $1,000,000 insurance policy.
General Manager Pete Moreno has nearly 50 years experience with BASU and as a corporate trainer and Senior Executive with Fortune 500 corporations such as JCPenney, Macy’s etc. Peter trained at The Pacific Institute directly with the Founder, Lou Tice. Pete heads up all BASU operations, having retired from his corporate position and joining BASU in 1998.
Statement of Compliance

“I wanted to take a moment to let you know how stellar I think you are.
All the after hours whackiness, crazy customers and situations, and always, ALWAYS, the job gets done. I know I can count on you folks to track down me, the docs, the answers, the clients, etc. Any situations that have arisen are resolved.
I appreciate your diligence, work ethic and sense of ownership on each and every file. I could not imagine doing my job without you.
Please know that you are appreciated and referred, often, when I’m asked who I use for signings.
Thank you so much for being there for me!”
—Gratefully Yours, Laurie from Santa Rosa
“I really like working with these guys, last night their Notary helped save a closing completely. She noticed a reference to a pre-payment addendum but there wasn’t one in the package so she called BASU, they reached out to me, I got hold of the mortgage broker and sure enough, the lender had completely missed an addendum and a rider. I emailed to her at the signing, she helped my client print them- and she still somehow found a Fedex to get the docs out after 7pm!
They often remind me why I’m glad to work with them, thanks Pete.”
—Chad from Walnut Creek
“They seem to have a Notary even in cities I’ve never heard of!”
—James from Fresno
“Boy do they take the ‘Signing Partner’ thing seriously! I’ve never worked with a Notary service that was so ‘hands-on’. They get to know exactly how I like to handle things and do it my way. My office mate operates differently than I do but they adjust and make us both happy. I love the attention to detail.”
—J.B. from Los Angeles
“I wanted to take a few minutes today to tell you how much I appreciated how your staff handled Friday’s last-minute “emergency” signings.
I received a double set of documents for 5 buyers; three in Marin and 2 in San Mateo. Everyone had to sign that day (of course) and none of them could come to my office in San Francisco.
I called BASU and within 10 minutes Pete in your office had a Notary set for Marin. That same Notary then took the docs to San Mateo. At 8am this morning the Notary handed me the completed docs. If that’s not “curb service” I don’t know what is!
Your staff went above and beyond, making ME a star in the realtor’s eyes.
Thank you again for reminding me why I love working with you.”
—Betty from San Francisco
“I am writing to tell you of a great customer service tool available that you may not be aware of.
Perhaps you are in need of a document signing service in your area. If so, then at least let me recommend Pete Moreno of BASU to you. I find him to be reliable, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you would like to reach him his number is 415-479-2629.
You may want to pass the word and the enclosed flyer along to your staff.”
—Jay, Branch Manager in San Francisco
“I would like to share my experience with BASU. Please pass on to all the managers (statewide) what excellent service Eric at BASU has provided for us. Last Wednesday, we had forgotten to set up a signing for our borrowers in Hollywood. At 11 am our broker called to see if everything was all set up for noon. I freaked out but then called Pete and he speed dialed 3 different notaries at once – he had all of his staff calling notaries in LA and within 10 minutes he had someone heading to our signup. It was incredible for him to be able to set up something in LA within the hour. He saved me!!! He is an escrow godsend! I have worked with them for 12 years now – through the refinance crazes – and through 4 different offices that I worked within three Title companies. He has always come through for me but this was truly awesome. He truly saved me from client retribution.
Eric shared with me that he has 350 notaries statewide and has notaries in certain area of Nevada and Arizona available. He knows each and every one personally and feels he is an extension of our employees. I feel he has gone above and beyond. Please give him a try anytime at 415-479-2629.”
