About Martin Kastelein

Providing Professional Notary Public Services to New Westminster and the Lower Mainland


After the 1987 sale of the family insurance business in New Westminster, Martin Kastelein started his notary practice. As a full time BC notary public in New Westminster for 34 years, he specializes in Real Estate Transfers, assisting clients to create a Will, preparing Enduring Power of Attorney documents, Representation Agreements and Advanced Directives. As the first BC Notary to have a website, (launced 1999), Martin is known in the notary and real estate community as a professional who leverages the use of technology to provide premier service to his clients. The practice has also evolved to incorporating the signing documents electronically on office laptops.

In 2019 Martin expanded his team, and in 2020 he decided to change the name of his practice to New West Notary Public to reflect the community he is honoured to serve.

Martin thoroughly enjoys his career. He finds it rewarding to help clients who are buying or selling a home, working on preparing their Wills, or proactively planning for the future with personal planning documents.

Feel free to contact Martin for any notary matter.

Community Involvement

Martin is a New Westminster resident and enjoys walking to his office.

His team has received recognition for the last 6 consecutive years as the Best Notary Public office by readers of The Record.

Although the office name has changed from Martin Kastelein Notary Public to New West Notary Public, he will continue supporting the Ride for Refuge, the annual New West Grand Prix cycling event and a local junior lacrosse player.

When not at his desk, Martin can be found somewhere in BC training for a cycling event, fishing, kayaking or snowboarding. Recently, in the summer of 2019, he participated in a 17 day cycling tour called LEJOG which started at Land’s End at the bottom of England and finished at John O’Groats at the top of Scotland. He also swam in the ocean in the English Channel at the start of the ride and in the North Sea near John O’Groats at the end. Next adventure? Stay tuned!
