Realogy Holdings Corporation Title Examiner - Remote in Jefferson City, Missouri
Title Examiner - Remote
Real Life. Real Details.
What you’ll do:
You’re part detective, part historian, part puzzle-solver. You’re the one who digs deep into records of property being bought or sold to establish ownership and ensure that it is free of any claims that could derail a transaction. As a detective, you probe all the details surrounding a property, including deeds, bankruptcies, tax records, appraisals, judgements and liens. As a historian, you look back into the property’s history – perhaps going back decades – to validate ownership. As a puzzle solver, you put the pieces together in a comprehensive package that verifies the property is insurable and that sales go smoothly.
Who you are:
Detail oriented, focused on dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s every step of the way. No detail is too small.
Intellectually curious, eagerly investigating all aspects of property ownership, not giving up until you get the complete picture; being willing to ask questions when dealing with new or unfamiliar issues.
Trusted expert, clearly communicating with applicable parties to provide status and guide them through the process.
Self-starter, working energetically without close supervision; well-organized and managing your time well to process multiple files simultaneously. Able to meet deadlines; prioritize cases and rearrange your schedule on the fly.
Constant learner, up to the challenge of new situations and embracing change in a rapidly changing industry and office environment.
Patient, the picture of calm under stress, remaining steady when things go wrong and working to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Tracing ownership: Working like a detective to follow the links in a chain of title to ensure that a seller or borrower has a clean title to the property.
Discovering details: Delving into a property like a historian, reviewing and analyzing title abstracts to chronicle the chain of ownership by searching public records to determine insurability, using applicable state specific laws, regulations, codes and standards to make determinations.
Puzzle maker: Compiling details from a multitude of sources and putting them together in a complete package that clears a property’s title for sale
Problem solver: Using your industry knowledge to identify potential issues, such as encumbrances, that need to be cleared before closing; knowing how to fix issues and avoiding unnecessary delays.
Committed partner: Working behind the scenes to arm agents and sellers with the information they need to clear any property issues that could delay a sale.
Clear communicator: Maintaining close contact with all parties throughout the process, informing them of decisions that have been made and questions that need to be addressed.
What you must have:
Education: High school diploma or equivalent.
Certification: Title Producer's license (where applicable per state).
Comprehensive knowledge and understanding of state specific laws, regulations, codes and standards that affect title insurance.
Understanding and working knowledge of a closing disclosure or HUD 1 statement.
One to five years of title abstracting, searching, examining and/or engineering in a production environment.
Individual must be well organized and able to simultaneously handle and track multiple settlement files and priorities.
