November 2015 Mortgage Market Share Report

I want to introduce you to three new team members here at John Bethell Title
At the end of October we welcomed Wendy Kitchel as our new Title Counsel. Wendy came to us after fourteen years with the law firm of Foutty & Foutty in Indianapolis where she specialized in representing lenders in mortgage foreclosures. Wendy managed title claims and bankruptcy issues for the firm?s clients as well. Prior to joining Foutty, Wendy was a title attorney for Chicago Title Insurance Company and Royal Title Services. Wendy is a 1993 graduate of the University Of Akron School Of Law and has an undergraduate degree from Indiana University. In addition to her role as our title counsel, Wendy will also help us stay abreast of the ever increasing number of regulatory matters now facing our industry. Wendy?s knowledge and breadth of experience is exactly what we were hoping to find when we began to look for Dan Stewart?s successor.

Earlier this fall we added April Saft to our closing team as a Transaction Coordinator. April has extensive prior experience in the medical administration field.April?s proficiency in balancing schedules, completing forms and working in a fast paced, compliance dominated environment with competing priorities will help her greatly as we teach her the title and closing business. April has already shown us to be a quick learner with a great attitude. I?m sure that you will enjoy working with her.

Two weeks ago Sarah Doering joined our team as a Real Estate Closer. For the last five years Sarah held the position of Service Center Manager for AAA Hoosier Motor Club. Prior to joining AAA, she was an Assistant Branch Manager for Monroe Bank and a Closing Specialist for Meridian Title Corporation. Sarah is also a member of the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Indiana. Several current team members previously worked with Sarah and enthusiastically recommended her to us. Sarah is already working up closings and will be conducting them in the very near future. Sarah further strengthens our capability to fulfill our promise of providing an outstanding experience to you and your clients

We are continuing to seek an additional real estate closer for our team. Once that has been accomplished, I will let you know.
