Michele Harris is a Title Officer at AmeriTitle’s Salem, OR office and has been with the company and in the industry since 1994. She is responsible for researching titles to ensure the property is free of anything that may adversely affect the sale or buyer’s rights to a property during a real estate transaction. Michele’s favorite aspect of her role is always learning something new!
When asked what brought her to to the world of title and escrow, Michele explains, “After college I worked as a substitute teacher and it made me decide I did not want that career! I went to a temp agency and was set up for an interview to work in the Title Plant at American Pacific Title and Escrow, which later became AmeriTitle.”
AmeriTitle Salem Title Manager Candice Gibbons believes Michele is an invaluable asset to the team, elaborating, “She has a wealth of knowledge and is always willing to pass on that knowledge to her less experienced teammates.”
Candice also appreciates her focus, attention to detail, positive customer service oriented attitude and that Michele concentrates on the more difficult commercial transactions because she loves a challenge and doesn’t shy away from the more involved and time-consuming projects.
Outside of the office, Michele enjoys spending time with her family and juggling all the extracurricular activities her children are involved in. Her favorite cuisine is Italian with spaghetti being her favorite dish and the The Old Spaghetti Factory on the Portland waterfront is her favorite restaurant. She’s a lifelong Portland Trail Blazer fan and roots for any team her kids are on.
