Director of Title Insurance Operations
Forty years ago, at the age of just twenty-three years, old Dolores Dios entered the world of Title Searching. As the daughter of a Superior Court Judge she was in and out of the courthouses her whole life; but now she was approaching those old stone buildings in an entirely different way; with two young boys at home she was determined to make her life working inside the dusty deed vaults that are hidden behind those old stone walls.
Through her experiences she knew that to be the best she had to learn from the best. Emil Resciniti was an old fashioned lawyer, he not only knew how to search, but he searched each and every one of his own titles. Armed with just a # 2 pencil and a yellow legal pad Dolores began learning the skills of the industry from Mr. Resciniti. In 1976 photocopiers were still not in common use, but this didn’t slow Dolores down one bit; once Dolores was confident and doing well in Essex County, she went off to learn how to search in other counties. She wanted to master all of the indices of all of the vaults. Before Dolores ventured off to the other counties she learned how to use a protractor. She had a strict teacher who demanded perfection, and Dolores did not disappoint him, nor did she disappoint her ever-growing client base.
After all those years, Dolores brings her industry knowledge of the legal and title industries, and her business acumen, to Cloudstar.
