Robin Mathis, owner and founder of Mathis Title Company, a Fairfax-based title company, was recently interviewed following another quarter of successful business. Robin explains why she credits her business success to her lifelong dedication to teaching and mentoring young attorneys and peers, and the valuable knowledge she has discovered in the process.
Interested in providing personalized real estate settlement services and education to all clients in a relaxed, easy going way, Robin Mathis created Mathis Title Company, a boutique Title Company in Fairfax, Virginia. Mathis Title Company provides a full range of real estate and closing services, as well as legal advice to buyers, sellers, lenders, and real estate agents. As a 34 year member of the bar, Robin has extensive experience in real estate law services, and has performed thousands of closings of all types, including residential, small commercial, buyer side, seller side, estate sales, and trust clients.
Robin credits her success of overseeing her own title company to regularly teaching first time home buyer classes, as well as her over 20 years of mentoring. Robin has always believed in mentoring young attorneys, and she believes she owes that to the profession she has received so much from. Consequently, Robin has been working with the National Business Institute (NBI) for 5 years to provide continued education for legal professionals and peers to succeed. She attempts to teach through NBI at least once a year with courses relating to real estate law, closings, and title insurance. NBI courses are open to attorneys and non-attorneys, such as paralegals, and individuals seeking credits for upholding licensing requirements. Despite running her own business and the amount of preparation time involved to ensure these courses are a success, she still attempts to teach through NBI at least once a year. She anticipates teaching her next course sometime in Spring 2020.
While she enjoys the mentoring aspect, Robin believes it is a learning experience for her as well, since ideas are always exchanged in the process. She finds that her dedication to teaching adds to her overall success as an established attorney.
