Almost no closing is impossible with Advantage Title, and that’s because of our awesome team members like Becky Ohlinger.
Whether it’s settling on a property here in Maryland or maybe coordinating a closing in Argentina or the Dominican Republic, Becky will find a way to get it done. We already know how hard she works for our clients, so let’s take a few moments to get to know her a little better outside the office.
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
I try to get up at 6:00 every day. I do a few chores and then log in to my computer and answer emails. I don’t drink coffee, I don’t watch the news. I just get up and get moving.
Who is the most famous person you ever met?
I was on a plane from New York to Cleveland. I sat with a bunch of guys heading to a basketball game. We talked for the whole flight. We got off the plane and said our goodbyes. My brother was picking me up from the airport, and he was in shock! He said do you know who that was? That’s Patrick Ewing!!!”
What’s your craziest settlement story?
I had an out-of-country closing in Argentina. It was challenging to get notarized because the embassies are closed during the pandemic. Luckily, Argentina is part of the Hague Convention. We can accept their notaries but they must go to an Apostille, which is like a notary for notaries that verifies everything is valid. I’m working on another one right now in the Dominican Republic.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
The weirdest thing I’ve had and liked is Octopus Sunomono! It’s sushi with cucumbers and rice vinegar.
What is the first thing you are doing when the pandemic is over?
A cruise!! I really want to go to the eastern Caribbean — Grand Turks or Jamaica. I’ve been to the west side and want to visit somewhere new.
