Meet our Coeur d’Alene, ID Branch

To understand the magic of Coeur d’Alene, one must visit the eclectic Northern Idaho city. Surrounded by dozens of lakes created from ice-age glaciers, Coeur d’Alene offers a plethora of recreational activities for any season – as well as jaw-dropping sunsets.

Alliance Title’s Coeur d’Alene branch sits across Riverstone Park and is a skip away from Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The CDA branch has an incredible group of professionals who desire to help and go above what is required for their customer base. With a combined work experience of 305 years in the industry, accuracy and a timely nature come naturally to this crew.

Each October, the team hosts an Open House that the community is invited to. With a turnout of 250 guests this past October, the CDA branch was especially appreciative of their guests and clients who participated in games, danced to live music, and ate delicious catered barbeque.

When they aren’t hard at work, each employee finds time to relax and unwind. From Noodling – catching large fish with bare hands – to tight wire walking, attending mosh pits at rock concerts, acing spelling bee contests, and powerlifting, this team includes quite the adventure seekers!

Employee Spotlight – Jan Clemons

The past two years Jan Clemons has been an employee for Alliance Title’s Driggs branch have been a monumental success for the team! As an Escrow Assistant for Driggs, Jan helps direct phone calls, clear title, prepare disbursements, and help Escrow Officers with anything they might need.

Her favorite part of the job comes from the legal aspect; previously working as a Legal Assistant for 20 years, Jan has experience that has proven its worth.

When she’s not working hard in the office, Jan loves spending time with her husband and children. Reading, crafting, or watching baseball and football are some of the few ways she unwinds from the day.

Jan’s favorite quote, “We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third,” from the Parks and Rec character, Leslie Knope, is a wonderful mantra to remind yourself to stay positive. Jan concludes, “I love that T.V. show, and I love Leslie Knope. After working so many years in an office setting, I can relate to it on so many levels!”
