Springdale, AR – On January 2, 2019, WACO Title Launched an industry first Closing Agent Training Program. This program revolutionizes the closing industry by fulfilling a job market shortage of trained Closing Agents, as well as launching a fast-paced training program. During the one-year program, trainees will master a wide range of industry specific topics, including technology training. Upon completion, the trainees will be WACO Closing Agents in markets throughout Arkansas and Missouri. Six new closing agents have been hired in the inaugural class:
Kelsey Mooreland, Bentonville, AR
Elyssa Newsom, Rogers, AR
Audra Shay, Springdale, AR Danielle Diemer, Little Rock, AR
Jordie Flippo, Little Rock, AR Traci Hickey, Springfield, MO
“The need for qualified Closing Agents has always existed in the industry,” said Amanda Brumbelow, Director of Closing Operations, “Traditionally, in most parts of the country, Closing Agents are trained by other associates by performing the daily tasks required to close a transaction. It may take several years for someone to learn the ins and outs of the closing transaction. There are no classes offered at universities or technical schools geared towards the Title and Closing Industry. The Closing Training Program offers recent college graduates an opportunity to fast track their career in this industry. This was a proactive step to ensure that WACO will continue to lead the title industry in Arkansas and Missouri and continue to serve our customers with highly qualified and professional Closing Agents.”
