- I didn't read that third paragraph, that's a good one Jon. All right, in a real estate transaction there are many reasons why you can encounter turbulence. Today we are going to talk all things Title, with Ken Taylor from Title One. Welcome to the jump. Welcome to the jump seat, man. Welcome to the jump sleet
- Thank you guys for having me I appreciate it.
- Absolutely. It's our first day by the way. I can tell.
- It's my first day, I feel like Homer Simpson.
- I didn't realize Jon was such a poet though.
- He is, holy cow.
- Skills that I didn't know he had.
- Yeah, I think he wrote it at the traffic light right outside here, sitting in the car. Very good, Jon.
- In blood. So Ken, how long have you been in title? What made you get into title? Let's start with just the basics there.
- I've been in Title Insurance for coming up on 14 years now. I've been blessed to be with the same company, Title One the whole time. My, mother actually was, has been in the industry her entire life and got me started and more, the more and more I got to know the industry and move in different departments, found out I really enjoyed it and have stuck with it and gonna make a whole career out of it.
- What do you like about title insurance?
- I like, my favorite part about title insurance is, while in practice all real estate transactions are the same, they're not. The puzzle pieces always are a little bit different. The way to get to a closing table is just a little bit different in every transaction and that uniqueness is kind of what, you know, makes me go everyday. That everything is, nothing is ever the same. Every transaction no matter how on paper it looks like it's gonna be the same, is always different and new challenges every day and that's something that I look forward to everyday. Trying to put the puzzle pieces together, to get everyone to a closing table.
- Yeah, it's one of those unseen functions, you know, we all kind of walk folks through the process, but churning away in the background literally from start to finish and even before start, with pre Title and what have you, that is absolutely such a critical piece of the transaction.
- That's correct yeah, it's a nice search, a nice, like I said, keep putting the puzzle pieces together. It's fun to draw a line from the start to end and, you know, we get to do that on every transaction which is fun.
