Our people define our Quality
Josh has been working for Quality Title Group for the last couple of years, handling everything from contract entry to post closing, policies, and is currently training to become a closer.

Leigh comes from a family line of real estate developers. However, she can never resist an opportunity to be different, so instead of choosing a real estate career after high school, she graduated from the University of Memphis with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and had a successful career as a cardiac nurse for six years in both the hospital and clinic environment. In 2016, Quality Title Group, LLC was born, and she came to “temporarily” work for the family business while shopping nursing jobs. That temporary work has now turned into a life time career as a closer and closing agent for Quality Title Group. She is able to use the compassion and people skills she learned from her nursing career to provide excellent customer service to her lenders, agents, buyers, and sellers- she has a lot of heart for her clients and makes every effort to assist in a smooth closing process. Not only is she extremely charismatic, but she has studied intently under her father, the closing attorney of Quality Title Group, for the last 4 years and has built a wealth of knowledge about the industry. In addition to Real Estate, Leigh is an avid horseback rider, painter, trumpet player, singer, song-writer, world-traveler, nature lover and work-out enthusiast.
