Annie Switalski – I have been in the title insurance industry since 1996. I first began my career with Hummel Title Agency as an escrow agent. In 1999 I left Hummel Title Agency Inc. for a position with Chicago Title Agency in Dublin. I worked as an escrow/closing agent for their main Dublin office before running their satellite office located inside HER Dublin. Finally, in June of 2001 I joined Tammy Besece at The Title Company Ltd. and have been here ever since. I obtained my underwriting license from the Department of Insurance in September of 2001. I handle a wide range of closings from residential to commercial along with all aspects of the closing from beginning to end. I am a current member of Central Ohio Land Title Association.

– I have been in the Banking and title insurance industry since 1985. I began my career working as an installment loan clerk, then becoming a consumer loan processor. Having done that for several years, I began work at National Real Estate, a title company in Pennsylvania, as a pre-closing specialist, working my way up to the closing coordinator position, before accepting a lending position as a mortgage processor. I then took a position at Progressive Bank in Wheeling, WV as their Commercial Loan processor. Having decided where my true interest was, I then took a position at a title agency as an Escrow officer/Closing agent to gain the additional experience I wanted in order to get to the position I am in now. Having worked both sides of a real estate transaction, both the loan and the title side, I feel my experiences have not only contributed to my success but made me see from different perspectives, and in April of 2017, the Steubenville Ohio office opened, with myself as the Branch Manager. I am licensed with the State of Ohio Department of Insurance.
