A brief bio:  I started in the business in 1978 in the title department.  I then moved to other departments and learned the different facets of the Title business.  In 1982, I went into escrow and have been in escrow ever since.  I personally close Commercial, Residential, REO and Refi transactions, or any transaction for that matter.

In the Verde Valley, there are many EWT employees; a few main components of our staff are: Tim Muse, Chief Title Officer and Lucy Estrada, Account Manager for the Sedona | Verde Valley area.

A brief bio:  I started in the business in 1984 in the title department, as runner/courier/filing clerk.  I then moved up the ladder to other jobs within the department and learned the different facets of the Title business.  During this time I completed a 6 year stint at the Yavapai County Assessor’s office as a title examiner and also managed its title transfer department.   At this same time, I held an active real estate license.  After returning back to the title business, I kept my license on hold for many years.  During this return, I received my Land Title of Arizona Association certification as Title Examiner.  I also gained experience in developer services as being a Trust Officer and completing state Public Disclosure Reports for new developments to be approved by the state department of real estate.   I briefly left the “title” game and became an escrow officer in 2002 and 2003.  After successfully building my escrow desk, I accepted an opportunity to return to “title” as a Chief Title Officer.   In 2010, Branch Manager was added to my responsibilities, and in 2011 I was given the opportunity to join in on the ground floor of expanding Empire West Title Agency in Northern Arizona.
