Thank you to Education Chair Steve Etzel and GLAR Board of Director Member Glynn Mosier for our 7th issue of "Real Estate Pros in the Know" podcast - "Understanding Home Warranties" . The monthly podcasts are cataloged at www.glar.com and distributed to Members for them to use as a resource to educate their clients/contacts on real estate issues. REALTORS® know this community, know the city leaders, know the economic growth, and are EXPERTS about our town(s). We have the MOST accurate real estate information for living in this area. We want to ensure our community is aware.

We additionally have begun a new monthly series called "Eye on Education" . Each month, Education Chair Steve Etzel will take one paragraph of the 1-4 Contract and highlight "need to know; need to be aware of" items. Quick read to ensure our REALTORS properly execute the contract well. Another educational resource from GLAR!

Stacy Stoltz, Stewart Title-Shawn P. Black and Associates
Serving others is at the heart of what Stacy does. It is the common thread running through her long and varied career path: from flight attendant to showroom manager to Special Ed teacher. Taking the time to understand the needs of others, treating them as she would want to be treated and maintaining a poised, professional demeanor - this is Stacy's formula for success in the world.
She was raised in Arkansas and graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and a minor in Marketing. Stacy has been the Business Development Director for Stewart Title- Shawn P. Black and Associates for the past two years. She initially worked for Shawn as an Escrow Assistant, which gave her an in-depth look at title transactions. “As the face for our title company, I’m immersed in marketing, networking, customer relations, advertising, event planning and community involvement, and I love it!" Stacy says. With fine-tuned people skills, she enjoys connecting lenders, mortgage loan officers and REALTORS with the experienced staff of Escrow Officers, so they can provide top-notch service for their clients. Stacy says about her position. “One of the best things about my job is being able to plug into our community and give back through organizations such as GLAR, Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club and various women’s groups.”
Thank you for bringing your "A" game to everything you're involved in, Stacy Stoltz!!
