Stewart Title Guaranty Company
Amanda Magee left a career in lending to join Stewart Title, one of the world’s leading title insurers, 13 years ago. As the director of business development for Western Canada, she has been instrumental in not only growing business in the region but also educating legal and real estate professionals about the insurance issues facing them and their clients.
“When we started offering title insurance, not a lot of people knew what it was or how it could be used to facilitate closing a deal,” Magee says. ”Now, 20 years later, our Canadian clients have come to rely on our expertise in the industry and the coverage our policies provide.”
Title insurance has become an issue for real estate agents who find themselves involved in unique or challenging transactions, many involving title or survey defects. Magee says Stewart Title is able to step in and provide guidance when these situations arise.
“We excel at working creatively to come up with underwriting solutions to assist in getting those deals done, big or small,” Magee says.
