Sara Heck has been in charge at Waco Title Co. in Springdale for almost one year.
Heck graduated from the University of Arkansas with a law degree and went to work in the private real estate sector.
She joined Lindsey Management in 2008 and in 2013 moved to Arvest Bank, where she worked in a variety of executive positions such as director of mortgage loan servicing and director of operations of the consumer lending division.
She calls title company work a “people business” and said she focuses on taking care of her team and taking care of her customers. “Real estate and title closings are the subject matter, but the heart of it is with the team,” Heck said.
Heck said title closings are important because they help protect people’s investments in property. “If people are sitting in that closing seat, they are there for a reason,” Heck said. “It may be a joyous occasion, first home, dream home or retirement home, or it could be a hard situation because of a divorce or a death. It is our job to take care of them in that moment.”
