Meet The Gang at Empire West Title Agency and Discover What They Do:
Empire West Title Agency – Sedona
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.
Empire West Title Agency – Prescott
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.
