am a native of Jamaica and migrated to the US in 1989 , after graduating high school and earning a two-year College diploma in Accounting . My first and only job in Jamaica was at the country ’ s largest financial institution , National Commercial Bank . Like most immigrants , I wore many different hats , from Nurse ’ s Aide , Legal Clerk , Secretary , Book-Keeper , and working for two different TV Stations simultaneously . To say the struggles were real during those times is an understatement . I changed my clothes in the elevators from a Legal Secretary outfit to something more suited for a Nurse ’ s Aide . I fell asleep on buses until the driver had to wake me up to get off the bus every morning for almost four months . Thankfully , times were different , and trafficking and kidnapping were not so popular .
My career in the title industry started at Ensure Title Corp . in Pembroke Pines , Florida as a receptionist , where I quickly went on to learn the duties of the processors and closers . I opened my first Title Company , Trinity Title & Escrow Company , in Hollywood , Florida , in 1995 , and 10 years later relocated to Orlando , where Alpha Reliable Title was born .
The growth in business has been amazing , and God ’ s blessings have poured out on me in so many ways . With over 32 years of knowledge and experience in the Title Insurance Industry , my staff and I pride ourselves on providing clients with the service they deserve . Being passionate about what I do keeps my office one step ahead , always ensuring that I stay up-to-date with all new tools available so that I can ensure that we are equipped to handle so many new challenges in the industry today .
The road to success was never easy , as I faced many obstacles , but I always knew that I could triumph over my trials once my faith was not shaken . I always hope to be a light to someone who is not as strong , and I am always pouring into my staff and clients to let them know that having a positive attitude and being committed will always pay off . This dedication has also earned my office the 2020 National Award from American Land Title Association ( ALTA ) in the category “ We Deliver ”.
Why Every Homeowner needs Owner ’ s Title Insurance ? Owner ’ s Title Insurance protects your investments , for some people it is their largest investment . It provides the peace of mind that Homeowner ’ s Insurance and warranties cannot provide , because it protects your property rights , for as long as you own the home . It allows the homeowner the peace of mind knowing that they are protected from inheriting possible legal problems
What happens if there is a problem with someone ’ s Title after closing ? If the Owner purchased an Owner ’ s Policy , then the Title Professional will resolve the problem , and if necessary , pay the cost of legal counsel to defend the title claim . It is all about being diligent in protecting our client ’ s piece of the American Dream .
Is Title Insurance renewed annually like Homeowner ’ s Insurance ? No – Owner ’ s Title Insurance is a one-time fee that ’ s very low relative to the value it provides . It typically costs 0.5 % of the home ’ s purchase price . Therefore , even if buying vacant land , we highly suggest that title insurance is placed . n
