Stressed, Overworked & Under-appreciated in Title & Escrow?

Do you feel stressed, overworked & under-appreciated by realtors & lenders during the closing process?

I know how you feel … I was too!

Hi there, I’m Ali.


During my 13 years in the title industry, I averaged 80 to 100 files per month (myself!). So I was a bit stressed out.

Just kidding…

I was INCREDIBLY stressed. All of the time!

If you work in title or escrow, you probably know exactly how I felt.

For 13 years, I would go to work … come home … have my laptop open while cooking dinner … put my kids to bed… then work on my laptop in bed with a glass of wine next to me.

My husband would insist that I close the laptop and enjoy my evening.

If you’re in the title and escrow industry, you know as well as I do that I couldn’t do that.

... I couldn’t just leave my work at work and have a life outside of the office.

I am going to let you in on a little secret that will save you a lot of time. If you use automated and templated emails and text messages to send updates to your realtors, lenders, and consumers, you can save an hour or more in busy work each day.

I’m not kidding.

Think about how much time you spend doing the same thing over and over and over again?

Also, think about what questions realtors, consumers, and lenders ALWAYS ask.

What if you could answer those questions before they even ask them (or better yet, before they even think to ask them!)?

Years ago, when I was still a title agent, I started using CloseSimple and it helped to give me my life back. CloseSimple’s proactive automated text message and email updates saved me time and allowed me to leave my work at work, to go home to my family, and to enjoy my life. What a concept, right?!

With my new free time after work, I was able to spend more time with my husband and 2 daughters. And today, our family also includes 2 dogs and 2 ducks. Yep, I’m a proud duck mom!

To be honest, I would love to live on a farm with a bunch of animals, but only if I could live there without having to do any farm work. A 2-occupant duck coop is enough for right now.

Although I felt overworked, stressed, and under-appreciated for much of the 13 years that I was a title agent, CloseSimple helped by automating my most redundant tasks.

Now that I am part of the CloseSimple team, I work with title companies to set up their automation packages. I LOVE my job at CloseSimple. The best part of my job is that I get to work with title companies, using my title knowledge in a different way by providing companies with something that I know will help them. I know that they are going to love the tools we provide that will make their jobs easier.

On the topic of favorites, one of my favorite CloseSimple clients is a company we just launched with this month. The boss was so excited to use CloseSimple software that he kept emailing his staff to tell them how much time CloseSimple would save all of them! The implementation process was smooth as well (taking only 14 days), which the title company loved.

Yup, you read that right.

14 days!

When was the last time you had a software launch that took only 14 days? I thought that was pretty impressive too, and I like knowing that the work my team and I are doing will help them reach their goals.

When I’m not helping title companies save time by automating redundant tasks, I like to read, cook, and break out in song for no reason other than I love music and singing. Most of the time, if I hear a song I like, I will belt out the lyrics. I probably won’t be able to tell you the title of the song or who sings it, but I will know every word.

I also like to travel. My family -- including my parents, my sister and her family, and my husband and kids -- go on a trip every year. We especially enjoy hiking along the north shore of Lake Superior. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family.

I’m sure you also have interests and hobbies that you’d love to indulge in. Maybe you also have ducks that you’re raising in your backyard. Or maybe you just want to enjoy a glass of wine, preferably one that pairs better with relaxation than with work emails.

You’re probably thinking, Yes, I would love to have time to enjoy my life, but I have too much work to do.

I get it.

Remember, I’ve been there.

For 13 years that was my entire life.

I understand that you have piles of work to complete and tons of emails to send to realtors, answering their many questions.

So here’s my pro tip: Let CloseSimple do the hard work for you by sending out automated text message and email updates so you don’t have to. Answer the questions from the realtor, consumer, and lender before they even ask them (or even think to ask them).

One of our clients recently told us about how a realtor told them that they ask 75% fewer questions of that title company during the closing than the other title company they also closed with. Our initial thought when we hear something like this is “that’s great!” and our second thought is “well, now you gotta get ALL of that realtor’s closings!”


What would a 75% reduction in the number of phone calls and emails mean to your productivity and work-life balance?
