Escrow Officer, Jennifer Upton, works out of Alliance’s Coeur d’Alene, Idaho branch and has been with the company for 9 years and 7 months. As an Escrow Officer, Jennifer is responsible for compiling final numbers and details for the final leg of a real estate transaction. She also conducts client and customer signings as well as coordinates the loan funding and recording of documents in a timely and professional manner.
What she enjoys most about what she does is making sellers, buyers, and borrowers happy and comfortable with their transaction. Jennifer said, “Nothing is better than having a customer that remembers you and seeks you out to close for them again 2, 4, 6, or even 8 years later.”
Teamwork is Jennifer’s favorite Alliance core value. She said, “I am so grateful to work with the amazing staff we have in Coeur d’Alene. There is not one employee that would not jump in for another and help at a moment’s notice. We are truly a large family.”
Jennifer’s husband of 22 years is the person she admires the most. Not only does he inspire her, but she said that his perseverance, encouragement, and understanding nature make her want to strive to do her very best each and every day. He makes Jennifer laugh at the drop of a hat, and he is her rock.
Outside of the office, Jennifer enjoys her weekends with her family having barbeques, camping, and playing cards. Because she grew up in Silverton, Oregon, Jennifer loves taking trips there to visit their families and spend time on the Oregon Coast. By far, though, Jennifer’s kids are her greatest interest. She explained, “I love going to their sporting events, taking them shopping, and watching how they are maturing into amazing young adults.”
Her favorite quote is by Zig Ziglar: “The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love, and loyalty.”
