Don Joseph, the owner and executive director of sales at Barrister Title, has created a company that thrives on being extraordinary. “Title companies can be looked at as dull, boring or drab,” he explains. “At Barrister Title, we like to celebrate a closing. We take pride in having a great environment and happy staff that make the final leg of the home buying process a pleasure to experience.”
Working with the best and brightest attorneys, residential and commercial lenders, and real estate professionals within Illinois and Indiana, Joseph also coaches his clients, guiding them through expanding their businesses and training their teams. “I think of myself as a cruise director,” he says. “Helping people find a way to enjoy what they do for others, keep their sparkle and get over any fears or hesitations.”
For more than two decades, Joseph has made a name for himself as an attentive, empathetic and energetic professional. As a board member of The River North Business Association, he uses the networking events to help connect people and show them that the rise of social media has not replaced the need for face-to-face business networking events, in fact it has only increased their importance.
Joseph values his amazing team, realizing that they are the face of the company at the closing, the team’s motto, “Service Sets Us Apart,” is proven with every transaction, and many former clients have turned into lifelong friends. ”My goal is to see the people I team with become extraordinarily successful, and I enjoy working to get them there.”
