Dear Hiring Manager,

I have seen your job posting for a Real Estate Paralegal on Zip Recruiter and I am sending you my resume which outlines my work experience. Upon starting my work with real property closings I completed a training course at New York University to conduct title closings. In recent years as a title closer with Kensington Vanguard National Land Services I have cleared title by marking up title with omits and exceptions, collected payments for open taxes and lien, ordered endorsements, examining proposed conveyance documents and working closely with the title processors, attorneys and lenders.

I started performing acknowledgment closings as a notary singing agent after the 911 World Trade tragedy. At that time the Federal Reserves lowered the interest rates to stimulate trade and many people were refinancing to lower their rates. Since then I have performed over 2,000 closings for major lenders, title companies, law firms and the Small Business Administration. I am presently taking an Abstracting course with the American Land Title Association and I look forward to expanding my title knowledge. I am adept at managing deadlines and multitasking, detail oriented, organized, and efficient and a proactive team player. My experiences has prepared me to accommodate the expectation of your position of Real Estate Paralegal. I would like to meet with you for a personal interview at your earliest convenience to discuss this opportunity further. I thank you for your consideration and I look forward to meeting with you.

I can be reached at 646-***-**** days or evenings, you can also email at the above email address. Respectfully,

Hakim A. Segars
