Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services Discusses Forward Thinking and Franchise Solutions on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®

PROVIDENCE, RI (November 19, 2015) – Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services, along with Lincoln Abstract and Lincoln franchise, Rhode Island-based providers of a full suite of residential, commercial, and specialized appraisal, title, and closing services/products, will be featured on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® on Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 5:00pm ET on Fox Business Network (as sponsored programming).

For this exclusive story, Kathy Ireland interviewed George K. Demopulos, President and Chief Valuations Officer, Jennifer Johnson, Esq., Executive Vice President, and Mary Howard, Executive Vice President of Sales to discuss the appraisal management and title services landscape along with the development of their revolutionary, first in the nation title and closing company franchise company.

Speaking on the challenges facing the appraisal profession, Demopulos said: “First and foremost, the most important aspect on the appraisal management side is reducing lender risk. In today’s heavily regulated field, it is important for appraisal management companies to be in compliance with all third party requirements as well as government relations. That is important so our clients understand that we are meeting the compliance standards.”

“Maintaining a qualified appraiser panel across the country where our clients know that we are working with the best appraisers in order for them to receive solid real estate values, and therefore be able to lend on their real estate knowing that the values are solid, is also of great importance,” he continued.

Jennifer Johnson, Esq. discussed Lincoln Abstract’s nationwide capabilities along with the industry’s first title and closing franchise business model. Johnson said: “The title and closing franchise model is a game changer for the title industry. It not only allows companies to leverage our national vendor relationships, and for IT infrastructure and compliant operational policies to stay in the game. It also opens the title and closing business to new industry players in a transparent way. All this is an extremely cost-effective business model.”

According to Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® Vice President of Programming, JL Haber: “Appraisals, along with title and closing services, are a very important part of any real estate transaction and in order to be successful, you need reliable companies to assist you. This is where the Lincoln family of companies steps up to the plate.”
