teresa newWhen it comes to the title business, you can never underestimate the importance of knowledge and experience. Here at Melrose Title Company, we have high standards for our team. This is why we’ve assembled a group of unique individuals who are the best of the best in their fields. And one of those team members who is truly the backbone of our entire operation is Teresa Glass.

Teresa, a closing agent, was recently promoted to the role of Commercial Manager. She has been with Melrose since its inception in 2014. She calls Maryville, TN home, but says she was an Air Force brat who lived all over the United States.

Teresa has been involved in the title business in one way or another for the past 17 years. She started on the lending side, and has been a loan processor, as well as corporate administrator to the owner of a mortgage company. She has previous experience working for title companies,  insurance companies, and a real estate company. Having been a residential and commercial processor and closer on the title side, she refers to herself as “kind of a jack of all trades.”

Teresa says her favorite thing about her job at Melrose Titleis that she loves a good challenge. Because we handle some fairly complex commercial transactions in our office, she finds that very satisfying. She also notes that we have a fabulous team here, likening it to a well oiled machine. She says that’s rare in this business, and she ought to know. She also says it’s great to work with an exceptional team.

As a learner by nature, Teresa also says she enjoys learning new things from her colleagues and has soaked up many meaningful life lessons from them along the way. In her free time, she enjoys working on classic cars with her husband and she also raises Boxers. Her favorite thing to do on a Saturday in Knoxville is to get out and explore the area with her husband. They have a great attitude and love to explore our area, never knowing exactly where they’ll end up or what they’ll find along the way. We think Teresa’s love of adventure and always being up for a challenge makes her an invaluable member of our team. We can’t imagine Melrose Title without her!
