Stephanie R. Carter

AVP, Branch Manager, Sr. National Commercial Escrow Officer GCTA Tempe / Chandler Branch
I have been in the title industry for 16 years. I started in Elk Grove Village, Illinois in 2002, moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2003, landing in Phoenix, Arizona in 2016. I managed the Direct Commercial Services Unit for Fidelity National Title Group for 13 years in Tennessee.
We conducted commercial transactions, locally and nationwide with local and major accounts.
My role was to coordinate and find solutions to completing the transactions with all parties, from internal employees/underwriters to the external parties.

Each employee had to search, prepare commitments, closing statements, proforma’s, survey reads to finalize with the policy. This gives you a vast experience in the entire transaction; from clearing title, to the types of endorsements needed, issues the majors customers would have, creating new easements or removing easements and insuring what was needed even before the commitment was issued.

I came to Arizona in 2016, where I became the Branch Manager of the Commercial & Investors Unit. Moving to Arizona, (an escrow state) I have found that knowing the entire transaction is unique to the industry but I feel it is essential in completing each transaction successfully.

I have learned each state’s nuances during all phases of the process, from refi’s to purchases to leaseholds/leasehold buy backs to new construction. This experience, also gives you the ability to deal with any party, from the customers, to the real estate brokers, to the loan processors, to the loan officers, to attorneys representing the parties. Having the ability to speak with each party insures the transaction runs smoothly and keeps the process moving forward. I like to build relationships with each party so we do our best to insure each individual feels they have had a successful closing.
