The Highland Title + Escrow team is shining our employee spotlight on Lisa C. Goldman. Lisa is a Settlement Agent and Growth Team Coordinator, covering primarily Herndon, Reston, McLean and Fairfax. We enjoy taking the time to share about our title professionals because they are the ones who work hard every day to ensure a favorable settlement experience for everyone involved.
Lisa began her career in the real estate industry as an independent contractor closing real estate transactions for multiple title companies. She met Mike McFarlane, President and CEO of Highland Title + Escrow, in the winter of 2021 and soon found her home at Highland. Mike had confidence and invested in her, and she received her title insurance license after six months as a settlement agent.
A typical day for Lisa includes preparing for upcoming settlements, communicating with Realtors and scouting new opportunities to connect and share Highland with other agents. Lisa loves Highland Title + Escrow’s mission and dedication to client support throughout each office. Lisa said, “Our employees are loyal and create a family atmosphere that makes working at Highland enjoyable….I love going to work every day!”
Lisa’s favorite thing at Highland Title + Escrow is Settlement Day! “Being a part of each client’s joy when buying a home is the most gratifying part of my job. When our clients are happy, I know that Highland went above and beyond to ensure a smooth closing,” Lisa said.
If you want to work in the title industry, Lisa recommends that you have a genuine interest in real estate and enjoy working with people. She feels supported by her coworkers in all aspects of the job, which gives her peace of mind knowing that Highland Title + Escrow is filled with people who care not only about her but also about every client and Realtor who walks through the doors. Finding a company filled with people like the ones she gets to work with at Highland Title + Escrow is beneficial.
When not working with Highland Title + Escrow’s outstanding team of title professionals, Lisa has an artistic side that takes many forms. She enjoys fashioning a beautifully set dinner table, decorating place cards using calligraphy, and making packages look pretty for friends. She is also an avid cyclist and has completed several century bike tours with her husband of 31 years, who is also her best friend.
Above everything else, her most significant accomplishment is being a mother to three wonderful sons, who continue to awe and amaze her with their kindness and talents.
