We have many unique individuals who make up our National Commercial Team here at Title Source. We sat down for a Q&A session with some of the team members who fill these various roles. Let’s get to know more about Commercial Courier Tim Wiercioch.
It’s a research position. I get sent out to do the searching and the digging. I also find and create channels to go through in the future when it comes to recording, pulling court cases, finding judgements and researching how properties change hands. I end up driving 60 to 70 miles per day.
How did you end up in your current role?
I’ve been doing the same type of work for almost 20 years I was originally hired to do deliveries. Eventually I learned how to go about finding information that isn’t on computers – picking up a little here and a little there.
What skills do you need to be successful as a courier?
You need to have tenacity. The information is out there. You just have to find a way to get it. Sometimes you’ll find yourself in a situation where you know how to find the paperwork you need, but you need to communicate how to find it. That’s just something that comes with the experience and making connections.
What parts of the job are challenging?
Every once in a while there’s something new that you haven’t seen. You have to go out and find the right information. In that way, my role is somewhat like a detective. I need to track things down, or track down the people who know where to track it down.
How has the job changed since you started?
Personally, it’s changed in that I’ve just gotten quicker at finding what I need. When I started in this position, I didn’t know where to go, or who to talk to. After all these years of working in the tri-county area, I’ve figured out all the different protocols for finding things. As a rookie, it could take multiple trips.
Is there anything else you’d like to mention, or would like people to know?
Ultimately, my job is about tracking it down. I really do feel like a detective sometimes. It’s satisfying to find something that no one else can find.
Do you have a fun fact or something most people don’t know about you?
I enjoy traveling to other cities to see local sports teams, mainly the Detroit Tigers. I’ve traveled between Los Angeles and New York to see sporting events.
