Closer and Assistant to Liz

It is said if you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life.  This is how I feel about being a Licensed Title Agent in the State of Florida. It has been my honor and my privilege to meet people I would not have met in my everyday life.  For instance, one of our very own American Astronauts (who was buying a home); a Saudi Prince and his wife (who were selling one of their many homes) and a professional baseball pitcher and his family when they purchased a home in Melbourne Beach. Then the sweet stories that make such wonderful memories: The very young 20-something newly married couple who were buying their first home and had to literally sign every document together, at the same time. Or the first-time homebuyers where the wife had to be overseas on business and despite the time difference, she Face-Timed in so she could be part of this experience with her husband. Priceless experiences that I have been lucky enough to be part of. I have a background in the accounting field, as a legal secretary and then as a paralegal prior to becoming a Florida Licensed Title Agent.  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and am currently working on my Master’s Degree, with the ultimate goal of earning my Doctor of Theology (ThD) degree.  If I am not at work, I am spending time reading and studying, two of the passions in my life.
