Diamond Title Agency – Panama City Beach Office
Pat entered the title profession in January of 1980. Since beginning her career Pat has been a commitment and policy typist and a title researcher and examiner, which has proven vital in developing her expertise as a real estate closing officer which she is today. She has earned both the Certified Land Searcher and Certified Land Closer designations from the Florida Land Title Association, as well as being a Licensed Title Agent in the State of Florida. On July 1, 1998, feeling that there was a lack of exceptional customer service in the title industry, she opened Diamond Title Agency, Inc. which continues to this day to thrive in a competitive market.
Before entering the world of title insurance, Pat worked at several finance companies such as Atlantic Loan Company and Beneficial finance Company. Her father was retired military, therefore she moved quite often with her family prior to making her home in Bay County. She is active with the Homebuilders Association of Bay County and the Bay County Association of Realtors. She has received the Affiliate of the Year Award from both organizations for her commitment to their professions. She has also received the Bay County Chamber of Commerce Service Award as well as the Small Business of the Month Award. Pat strives to make all closings professional and enjoyable.
Ashley Diamond – Administrative Assistant:
Ashley was born in Panama City, Florida and I guess you could say, born into title insurance. Growing up with a mother that worked in the industry, the profession just became second nature to her. Her first job was summer job when she was 16 yers old, working alongside her mom at Bay County Land & Abstract co. Upon graduating from Mosley High School in 1998, she enrolled at Gulf Coast State College f/k/a Gulf Coast Community College where she majored in Liberal Arts. After two years of school, she decided that perhaps she was just mean to to be in the title insurance world after all. She became a Licensed Title Agent in 2005, and continues to build her knowledge by regularly attending seminars that keep her informed of the constant changing business. She has worked in just about every position, from receptionist to Closing Agent.
