Gary’s Assistant

Samsung

Grace Westlund began her career in the Real Estate Industry in 1975 in the title industry, and in 1978, became an Escrow Officer with TICOR Title Company in Santa Rosa.  In 1981 she relocated to Sacramento working with Transamerica Title as an escrow officer in their secondary financing division, the largest of Transamerica’s Escrow divisions at that time, closing in excess of 15 transactions per day.  In 1983 Grace returned to Sonoma County working as a vice president and branch manager for Northwestern Title Company.  Grace was strategically placed in under-performing branch offices to manage their return to productivity and profitability.  She also established a mobile home division, and authored a Mobile Home Guide for Real Estate Agents.  Grace  was further successful in obtaining several large and lucrative new-home subdivision accounts for the company.

In 1991, due to her husband’s job transfer, Grace and her family relocated to Southern California.  There, she was the office manager of a large real estate firm of 75 agents.  In 1993 she took charge of the company’s escrow division as a DOC certified manager.

Grace decided to venture out on her own in 1996 and started Westland Support Services.  The company rapidly expanded to become a very successful independent transaction coordination company, the largest in Southern California at that time, coordinating an average of over 130 transactions per month for more than 20 real estate firms.  When the real estate market took a sharp decline, Grace and her husband decided to return home to Northern California.  Grace changed the direction of her company and provided on-line and on-site training for transaction coordinators, together with custom set-up of transaction coordination systems for real estate companies.  She later added a successful mobile loan signing service.

Grace began working with Gary in 2011.  Today, they make a dynamic team, working together to take all transactions to a smooth and successful close.
