Shelley has been with the company since 1992 and is our corporate Secretary. She has a deep connection with our community, having been a life-long Monroe County resident. Over the years, Shelley has worked both as a closer (commercial and residential) and as a title examiner, meaning that she analyzes title searches and evaluates documents prior to preparing title insurance commitments. Previously a paralegal, Shelley is a licensed Indiana title insurance producer and is active on various committees of the Bloomington Board of REALTORS®. She is the manager of our Downtown Office and her duties include providing quotes for searches, title premiums, and title services fees.

 

 

Heather Teske

Heather is another Monroe County native and is our company Bookkeeper. In addition to balancing the books for TitlePlus!, she also reconciles firm trust accounts, the settlement escrow account, and carries out other important financial duties. Because most title agency audits start with funding and agency accounting matters, she is the focal point for communicating with our title underwriters, who track incoming and outgoing funds, monitor bank account reconciliations, and verify premium remittances. If an eye for detail is critical in the world of accounting (and it is), then Heather ranks right at the top.

 

 

Andrew Eyster

Andrew joined our team in June of 2015. As a licensed Indiana Title Insurance Producer, he has worked previously as a title searcher, title examiner and real estate closer in Monroe County. His years of experience and keen eye for detail make Andrew a valuable part of our team. Andrew is our IT Manager, focusing on maintaining and improving our computer network and technology infrastucture.

 

 

 

Bobbi Jeffries

Bobbi was hired in December of 2015. Bobbi is responsible for opening new title orders and has a veriety of other duties around the office. While she is relatively new to our company, Bobbi has a long history of working with the Bloomington real estate community and we are excited to have her as a member of our staff.

 

 

 

Amber Thomas

Amber grew up in Monroe County and is a licensed Indiana Title Insurance Producer. she currently works to issue all of our final title policies. However, to think that’s her only role misses the point entirely. Amber is an important member of our team who helps in a wide variety of additional areas; from clearing pre-closing requirements to answering questions for our customers. Put another way, Amber is the point person for our company and juggles more responsibilities - and different types of responsibilities - than anyone else.

 

 

Jenny Hudson

Jenny was hired as receptionist in 2003, just in time for the tidal wave of purchases and refinances. Not long after excelling at the front desk, she became a closer, a position she's held ever since. Hailing from Monroe County, her extended family has been involved in real estate for decades. Although most of Jenny's efforts are in the residential sector, she is equally adroit in the commercial arena. For the past several years, Jenny has been the chief closer at our Downtown Office, handling everything – as do all our closers – from high-end cash deals to short sales and everything in between.

 

 

Jamie Walls

Jamie joined our team in the summer of 2015. With years of experience as a licensed real estate closer, Jamie is a familiar face to the Bloomington real estate community. She does a great job of always making our customers feel comfortable and welcome throughout the closing process. While Jamie's focus is in the closing room, she is always willing to help where she is needed. We are thrilled to have her as part of our team!

He brings to us a background in small business innovation and information technology. Chuck helps out in our Closing Department, working to prepare closing documents and cordinate closings.

 

 

Jim Kelley

image 3

Jim is a resident of Greene County and has worked as a title searcher for over 22 years. While Jim has only been working as a title searcher for company since December of 2015, he has quickly made an impact on us all with his strong work ethic and positive attitude. Jim's duties require familiarity with systems and procedures of various county offices, including the Assessor, Auditor, Treasurer, Recorder, and Clerk. Title searching – whether by computer or flipping pages by hand – is a short step away from examining, meaning Jim has learned to digest the meat of the documents he encounters, so he can follow the trail where the documents lead.
