Alliant is excited about our newest addition to the Southwest Underwriting team!

Alliant National is pleased to announce the addition of Erica Stoltz as Texas Underwriting Counsel for the Southwest Region! Erica joined Alliant National on March 23rd and she has been working closely with the underwriting team for the last two months learning internal processes and requirements. During this time, she has demonstrated the genuine ability to understand complex underwriting issues and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with title agents. Erica holds an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and went on to graduate from Texas Tech University School of Law. Her experience as a Disaster Relief Attorney for the U.S. Small Business Administration became immediately valuable as the government rolled out the PPP Disaster Relief Loans where she provided immediate, first-hand knowledge to Alliant National on the best way for affected companies to apply for disaster relief funds.

As a title insurance professional, she learned the industry from the ground up serving as a clerk/runner for a law firm, and then she worked in the Title Commitment and Policy Department for a title agency in College Station while at Texas A&M. Following law school and her time at the SBA, she became an Examining Attorney for a large independent agent in Dallas/Fort Worth where she spent many years performing in-house underwriting for both residential and commercial transactions. After a few years out of the industry raising a family, she is back in the game!

We are very excited to have her join the Southwest Underwriting team!

Grab your magnifying glass, good lighting; learn to spot anomalies when verifying ID

But did those fake IDs actually work? Did they fool anyone? Maybe, or maybe not. Today’s fake IDs are fairly sophisticated and look very much like “the real thing.” However, there are still ways to spot a fake ID, whether or not the fake ID is simply false, altered, or even borrowed from another person. It is especially important to check a party’s ID when closing a real estate transaction because identity fraud is a crime that can result in enormous loss.
