About Farmer Notary

I was commissioned as a Notary Public on June 22, 2010. I have lived in Otter Point for more than a decade with my husband, long-time Sooke resident, former Sooke Councillor and Manager of the Sooke Shoppers Drug Mart, Marcus Farmer.
I have a Bachelors of Arts Degree (BA) from the University of Victoria, a Masters Degree in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Victoria, and a Masters of Art in Applied Legal Studies (MAALS) from Simon Fraser University.
Prior to becoming a BC Notary Public, I was a land policy consultant who worked for law firms, right of way firms, telecommunications companies, and various government organizations in both Canada and the US.
What sets my firm apart is the high level of customer service I provide coupled with my extensive knowledge of the region. I understand that many people cannot take time off during the day to execute documents and obtain informed advice; therefore I regularly meet with my clients when it is convenient for them; early in the morning, evenings and weekends.
In my free time I enjoy sports and gardening, and I am an avid bird watcher.
What others say about Farmer Notary

Thank you for all of your work, advice, and expertise. We are extremely happy with your service and knowledge. We would absolutely recommend you to others.

M.M. & R.M., Sooke

We have been very impressed with Shawna Farmer's conscientious thoroughness, in regards to both our recent real estate transaction and our incorporation. She has been professional, knowledgeable, and completely trustworthy throughout. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of a notary. Thanks so much, Shawna!

Erin, for Cast Iron Farm

We recently used Shawna to create a Will, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Documents for both of us. She was very knowledgeable, professional and thorough. She even discovered that our house, which we purchased a year ago, was not titled as we had wanted and fixed it for us. Her fee seemed very reasonable for the amount of work she did. We definitely recommend her.
