Brittany Newsome

My expertise includes overseeing projects from “cradle to grave,” encompassing land acquisition, construction, permanent debt and out-sale. My experience has also provided me keen understanding of curative, drafting and ALTA Title policies.

What do you focus on?

My expertise lies in title work, including: curative, drafting, and ALTA title policies. Because of my prior experience serving as VP and state underwriting counsel for Chicago Title Insurance Company, I am able to oversee projects from “cradle to grave,” encompassing land acquisition, construction, permanent debt and out-sale. In addition to title work, my legal experience allows me to speak openly with other counsel, to provide the quickest resolutions to problems.

What do you like most about working for TerraPro?

What appeals to me most about working for TPS is the collaborative environment. Everyone on the team is eager to jump in and help one another. We work as a team to accomplish the end goal in unison.

Where do your passions lie in your personal life?

My passion in my personal life is definitely my family. I have been blessed beyond measure with the most wonderful and supportive family. We love to travel and have fun new experiences together. Watching my kids grow and learn is truly a joy I could never put into words. We love living in the South, but could do without the raging humidity and mosquitoes. My husband and I love good food and wine, and we are huge college sports fans—GO HOKIES (unless you ask him and he will say Go Buckeyes).

What motivates you?

I am motivated by results, for sure. It’s a blessing and a curse! I absolutely love to see the fruits of my labor, though. There is such a gratification that comes from being able to see how your hard work has paid off. I am also very motivated by others with similar mindsets and goals. Having a team mindset keeps your accountable and helps to push forward on the harder days. Plus, once you all accomplish a shared goal, it’s way more fun to celebrate with others!

What are your proudest accomplishments?

My proudest accomplishment professionally is getting to do what I love every day. It isn’t easy balancing a career, in an otherwise male-dominated field, with two small children at home. It makes me proud to be able to show my daughter and son that you can follow your professional and personal dreams. I wanted to be an attorney from a very young age, and the only job I wanted more than that was “mom.” I am proud to be able to do both!
