I graduated from the U of Illinois College of Law in 1998 and moved to Atlanta the same year. Origin Title opened its doors in 2003. Outside of the office, I mountain bike and play keyboard/piano in a cover band.

Endorsement Letters I've Received

When purchaing a home, we ask the buyers if they want to be joint tenants with survivorship so that their spouse would become the owner of the property if one of them passed away.  Most of the time the answer is yes.  If the couple was previuosly married and have adult children they want to possibly inherit the property, then the couple likely does not want to be joint tenants with survivorship.  With survivorship, the surviver becomes the full owner and the deceased spouse's children receive nothing.  (Assuming the spouses have not adopted each other's children).  It is a little bit of estate planning to decide how a buyer wants to own property with someone else.
