Bryan and Cheri Guentner, owners of RE/MAX Platinum Realty, have opened Platinum Title, LLC. The new title company is located adjacent to the RE/MAX Platinum Realty Osprey office at 410 S. Tamiami Trail, Osprey, Florida 34229.
Longtime Sarasota resident Victoria "Vicky" Butler, former owner of Southwest Florida Title, has been named Manager of the new firm, which will serve RE/MAX Platinum Realty's more than 50 real estate agents and their customers in the Sarasota, St. Armands, Lakewood Ranch, Osprey and Venice offices, as well as other clients.
"We opened a title company because we wanted to make sure our agents and customers would be well taken care of with on-time, accurate closings," said Bryan Guentner. "We looked around for a long time for someone who could serve as manager, but we didn't find the right combination of skills until we met Vicky. It had to be someone we could trust 100 percent, not only to handle all the aspects of a closing, but who had experience running a title business. Vicky was the perfect fit."
Butler has more than 20 years of experience in the title insurance industry, including 13 years as the owner of her own Sarasota title firm. She is a Florida licensed title agent, a Florida notary, and a member of the Florida Land Title Association (FLTA). A past Women's Council of Realtors "Affiliate of the Year" for the Sarasota chapter, she graduated from Sarasota High School and attended Manatee Community College (now State College of Florida). She lives in Sarasota with her husband, Dave Butler, a retired Venice High School football coach.
"I was thinking about coming back to the title industry when the real estate market started to rebound," said Butler. "Bryan and Cheri Guentner's commitment to customer service matches my own core values. Their ability to leverage the latest technology and provide corporate support contributed to my comfort level and my decision to join their team."
