Lessons from Local Leaders:

Leigh Hewartson

Can you believe our guest this week started her journey in the title industry at just 16, working at the courthouse in Montgomery County, Maryland? Join us as we walk down memory lane with Leigh, exploring the highs and lows of running a business, navigating the “shade” in the industry, and her pivotal role with the American Land Title Association (ALTA). Our guest’s insights into the intricacies of the title industry prove to be a fascinating and enlightening conversation that you won’t want to miss.

Switching gears, we delve into the mortgage industry, a challenging field that our guest navigated with tenacity. She shares riveting anecdotes from her early days of closing loans, including an emotional experience with an elderly couple. Our guest also sheds light on how the market has evolved over the years, particularly with the advent of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). You’ll gain new perspectives on the trials and triumphs that come with this industry.

Finally, we transition into a more personal narrative. Leigh opens up about her battle with thyroid cancer and how it transformed her life, making her retreat from traditional networking. She also shares her unique use of video content as a valuable networking tool. We also dive deep into the housing market—its challenges for young people, and the joy found in Highland cows photography. We wrap up with a look at the importance of setting and achieving future goals for family businesses. This episode is a heartening journey through resilience, change, and the power of perseverance. You’re in for a rollercoaster of emotions, knowledge, and inspiration – enjoy the ride!
