Janis Okerlund began her career in the real estate industry in 1991 performing national title operations. Janis became a leader in the management and underwriting of complex subdivision and commercial development transactions. Seven years later, and after receiving a J.D. from Western State University, College of Law, Janis joined Fidelity National Title where she continued to expand her national underwriting experience.
After years of managing and underwriting complex subdivision and commercial transactions I am successfully translating my technical expertise to the direct benefit of my clients.
At Fidelity National Title, Janis served as a senior commercial title officer and underwriter, and was instrumental in the growth of the National Commercial Services Division into one of the most profitable specialized divisions in the FNF family. However, her entrepreneurial spirit and drive for continued growth fueled her departure from FNT - whereby she soon became the owner of a Southern California based underwritten title agency. During this time, Janis acquired a coffee company and a sports bar. Later, Janis developed a passion for great wine and she now bottles Napa Valley wines under her own label.
In 2012, Janis left her partnership and returned home – back to Fidelity National Title where she focuses on business development. Janis’ technical expertise and availability enables her to work very well with real estate attorneys and principals transacting national business.
