Escrow Assistant (Former Employee), Auburn, CA – January 30, 2014
Pros: being noticed for doing a good job
Cons: need to fit in breaks and lunches
It seems as once 8am struck at opening at Stewart Title to me it was like the stock market went crazy. The phones start ringing, clients came in for signings, emails to respond to, and the list goes on!
This is the action I seem to thrive on. I like all the action that takes place in this type of work.
I refreshed my escrow skills when I was back – more... at Stewart in May of 2013. Co workers were easy to work with. There was no hardest part of the job, you just learn all the time.
The most enjoyable was having recordings and clients come in to pick up checks or keys to their new home, and how excited they are. Not only that the comments they make of how happy they are and how we did a great job!! – less
Alot of attention to detail without compromising on the work flow process along with raising individual standards every day
Loss Mitigation Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TX – September 3, 2013
Pros: time flexibility, friendly and helpful environment
The management does a good job by keeping us motivated and by ensuring that we have all the right set of skills to accomplish our personal and team's goal every day. First I learned to be accurate with my daily tasks and as I was beginning to touch the level of accuracy I was expected to, I started focusing on being time-effective. The hardest part – more... of the job is the most enjoyable. We have trained to be flexible at all times and not adapting a certain procedure and relying on it. The new ideas and effective planning from the top management are delegated to the entire workforce which may be hard for those who find it difficult to stay flexible and adaptive. – less
I worked with Stewart Title while pursing my degree and was offered a full time position upon graduation. I accepted and my responsibilities and duties ranged from customer service, marketing and event coordination and executive assistant to the VP. Wonderful place to work, however the housing crash was the cause of my departure.
Old school way of preparing documents compared to today's technology
Title Loan Processor/Closer (Former Employee), Shalimar, FL – March 10, 2013
Pros: received my notary license which allowed me to start a side business "wedding on the go".
20 to 30 pages of documents hand typed and prepared for realestate closings, was probably one of the most demanding jobs one could have. Not only do you have the buyer and seller, but both realtors and the loan company to all come to agreement on the closing. Handing someone the keys to their new home they just purchased was always the highlight of – more... the day. – less
