Regional Sales Manager, Brooke Solomon sat down with us to share some insight about her position here at Res/Title. Graduate from the University of Hartford, Brooke has over 16 years of sales experience in the mortgage industry and is motivated to spread the word about Res/Title.
“I get to tell everyone how great we are!” Brooke said, “Every company does things a little bit differently with different needs so we like to accommodate.”
Brooke was offered the position by owner Jim Paolino to build up business in the state of Pennsylvania. In addition to her original role, Brooke now also handles Maryland and New Jersey as well.
“Res is a great company and I felt that even before I worked for them.” Brooke explained that during her previous position at Wells Fargo she worked closely with Res/Title. “It was reassuring when I took the position here- my observation about the environment was correct!”
On an average day, Brooke spends her time on the road meeting new Loan Officers or going to closings and in her free time, Brooke enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, Brielle.
Brielle is the reason for this month’s “End of the Month for a Cause” where we will be raising money for the Congenital Heart Foundation. Brielle was born with two major heart defects: Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR) and an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), preventing her veins from correctly bringing oxygenated blood to her heart. When children have TAPVR they most likely have an ASD which creates a hole in their heart.
At 5 days old, Brielle underwent open heart surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to repair both defects. Brielle had two more procedures at nine months and two-and-a-half years old when doctors were able to successfully put a device in her heart that closed the hole via a catheterization.
“We are lucky to be so close to one of the best children’s hospital in the county,” said Brooke, “We feel that we are extremely lucky with Brielle’s case it could have been so much worse. She has proven almost all the odds the doctors gave us wrong.”
The Children’s Heart Foundation co-sponsors a Congenital Heart Walk which Brooke and her family participates in every year. It raises money for research and honors the millions of people who have been impacted by the disease. Since 2010, CHW has raised more than $10 million in total.
“Most people don’t realize that 1 in a 100 babies are born every year with a congenital heart defect. It is the most common cause of infant death due to birth defects,” explained Brooke.
Brielle is currently an active six and a half year old that will compete in her first ice skating competition in March. Every two years Brielle is scheduled for an Echo and EKG to make sure the blood flow and pressures are doing well and to make sure the veins aren’t thinning; she shouldn’t need any more surgeries.
We are happy to have Brooke as a part of the Res/Title team for the past 6 years and through her hard work has grown Pennsylvania into one of Res/Title’s highest revenue states. Keep up the good work Brooke!
In honor of Brielle, on February 23rd Res/Title encouraged our staff to wear red and for every participant we will be making a donation to the organization. Here are a few of our pictures:
