Whitney Gilstrap, Escrow Assistant – Idaho Falls, ID

Whitney Gilstrap is an Escrow Assistant for Alliance Title’s Idaho Falls, Idaho branch. She has been a part of the Alliance Title team for 1 year and 2 months. As an Escrow Assistant, Whitney is responsible for coordinating purchase and refinance transactions with real estate agents, lenders, buyers and sellers; funding transactions when they have recorded; clearing title; and inputting figures for Closing Disclosure forms and settlement statements.

What she enjoys the most about her work is that every day is a little bit different. Some days the transactions she handles are smooth and quick while on other days they can come with a few obstacles. Nevertheless, Whitney likes that there is always something new to learn.

Integrity is Whitney’s favorite Alliance Title core value. She said, “I feel it’s important to have integrity not only in the workplace, but in every aspect of your life. If you are honest and hold strong to your morals and standards, you will gain trust and respect from those around you.”

Whitney’s brother Jayden is the person she admires most. Jayden recently left for Basic Training to become an Army Ranger. Whitney especially admires his courage and willingness to sacrifice anything for his family and country.

Outside of the office, Whitney enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities with her husband, such as riding UTVs, camping, fishing and hiking. They also like to relax and watch Netflix or a movie together. Whitney says she loves the “girly side of life” and likes shopping and anything to do with makeup.

Her favorite quote is by Charlie Chaplin:  “A day without laugher is a day wasted.” When asked why this was her favorite quote, Whitney explained, “Because life is too short to be anything but happy! There is nothing like a good laugh that turns your whole day around.”
