The deed should be notarized in state land is. If you find an attorney in the state who is a notary it can be done efficiently. Power of attorneys can be done in the state you are.

I believe a notary issued by a state only has authority to take acknowledgments within that state. For example, an Ohio notary does not have authority to notarize documents in any state other than Ohio.

A Notary is an official witness who declares that the person signing the document is truly that person and they have verified the signer's identity. Even though the document is drafted in one state, a Notary from any state can witness the signature.
