Hi, my name is Lisa Pryor. I’ve been with Monarch since November of 2015. Two months prior, in September, my husband and I moved to Columbia from East Texas because of his job transfer. Our real estate agent knew I needed a job, so she asked if she could send my résumé to colleagues in her field, and as a result I became a part of the Monarch family.
I was hired to be the receptionist but was promoted to a closing assistant about a year later. In January of 2019, I was promoted to an escrow closer. Monarch has two satellite offices, at South Providence and at Chapel Hill and Forum. When there isn’t a pandemic keeping me at our main office downtown, my office is at the Chapel Hill location. However, I do assist with closings at our downtown office on a regular basis.
I’m a people person, so I find it interesting working with so many different people. It is a challenge sometimes, but being a part of the home buying and selling experience means that I’m an important part of life-changing events. I’ve seen tears of sadness and joy, eager anticipation, relief, and more. One of Monarch Title’s goals is to make sure the experience is positive and as smooth as possible. Based on compliments we regularly receive, I believe we fulfill that goal.
On a personal note, when my husband and I moved from Texas, we left behind our daughter, son, and daughter-in-law, who was expecting our first grandchild. Since then, all of them have moved to Columbia, and we are expecting our second grandson in June. Our daughter works for Boone Hospital and is in nursing school, and our son and daughter-in-law are both teachers for Columbia Public Schools. We all love the area and enjoy taking day trips exploring new sights. Although we will always be Texans at heart, my husband and I have decided to stay in the Columbia area after retirement.
We see Columbia and the surrounding areas growing and are excited to be a part of it. I feel blessed to be working in a business where we cannot only see the growth but be a positive part of it too. I hope when you or someone you know is ready to buy or sell property you will allow Monarch Title to provide you with excellent service that we are known for and take pride in.
