Jeffrey Howell Joins Chicago Title
OCBA member Jeffrey Howell recently joined Chicago Title's Major Accounts Sales Team as Vice President/Associate Counsel. Previously, Howell served as the National Director of Sustainability for Chicago Title’s parent company, FNF, and considers his transition into major accounts sales a natural one. A graduate of Southwestern University School of Law, Howell will concentrate on working with commercial real estate attorneys in Southern California.

“My goal is to go beyond facilitating relationships,” he asserts. “My experience is crucial to my clients’ success because it allows me to be proactive in overcoming obstacles that arise in complex transactions.”

Howell has established himself as a trusted and knowledgeable resource for clients who appreciate his comprehensive understanding of legal, title, and underwriting issues affecting real estate transactions. In addition, his unique background includes knowledge of energy efficient real estate financing and valuation issues, experience as an instructor at UC Irvine, and experience working with joint ventures with multiple start-ups.

Joe Goodman, Senior Vice President and Southern California Operations Manager for Chicago Title’s Major Accounts Division, is thrilled to call Howell a member of his already strong sales force. “Jeffrey brings diverse experience and great technical knowledge to our team. I believe his clients will value his perspective and expertise on title and real estate,” Goodman said.
