Ashley Diamond – Pre and Post Closing Department
Ashley was born in Panama City, Florida and I guess you
could say born in to title insurance. Growing up with a mother that worked in
the industry, the profession just became second nature to her. Her first job
was a summer job when she was 16 years old, working along side her mom at Bay
County Land & Abstract Co. Upon graduating from Mosley High School in 1998
she enrolled at Gulf Coast State College f/k/a Gulf Coast Community College
where she majored in Liberal Arts. After two years of school she decided that
perhaps she was just meant to be in the title insurance world after all. She
became a Licensed Title Agent in 2005 and continues to build her knowledge by
regularly attending seminars that keep her informed of the constant changing
business. She has worked in just about every position, from receptionist to
Closing Agent. She currently serves as the title examiner and is responsible
for preparing the title commitment as a pre-closing duty, and she also has a
role in post-closing services by serving as the policy typist.
