North American Title Adds State Manager for Colorado and Utah

October 13, 2020

North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) has added Mary Santos Schoolmeester as state agency manager to oversee agency operations in Colorado and Utah.

Schoolmeester’s deep roots in the Southwest real estate, settlement services and title insurance industries open new opportunities to expand NATIC’s agency network in that area while servicing existing agents. Joining NATIC with more than 20 years of experience in business-to-business roles, she brings a unique blend of customer relationship management, title insurance agency sales, business consulting and recruitment skills to her position.

“Mary knows firsthand how to attract new clients and new talent into a title agency,” said Kevin Fontes, NATIC’s assistant vice president and regional agency manager. “Her previous work with customer relationship management platforms, technology, and recruitment and retention strategies will be an asset for agents looking to grow or enhance their talent programs and customer relations.”

Prior to joining NATIC, Schoolmeester was senior relationship manager at a digital title and escrow company, selling proprietary real estate applications and conducting title insurance training for real estate agents and mortgage lenders in the Denver metropolitan area. Before that, she spent seven years as a senior sales executive and licensed title officer at a title agency in Denver, where she also provided customer service and marketing support to clients. Her title agency experience includes another five years managing client accounts and cultivating new relationships for two Colorado-based title companies.

“My connections in real estate and business community organizations in the Southwest, along with my varied background, puts me in a unique position to be an all-inclusive resource for clients,” Schoolmeester said. “I look forward to applying my skills on the underwriting side of title insurance and sharing with NATIC agents the demonstrated sales, marketing, operations and recruitment strategies I have organized for immediate implementation.”
