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; she was determined to make her life working inside the dusty deed vaults that are hidden behind those old stone walls and began learning the in’s and out’s of title searching.
Dolores went on to start multiple business both inside and outside of the land title industry. From spending 35 year running a successful abstracting company to spending multiple years as an independent residential and commercial real estate investor, Dolores brings a wealth of leadership knowledge to Cloudstar.
