She will provide high-level support for WFG National Title agents on a variety of transactional issues, including curing title defects. “Lisa is well-known among Florida agents,” said Gene Rebadow, SVP, Florida Agency Manager. “Her appointment represents our commitment to providing deep resources for our agents, who remain our number one focus.”
