Ernest began his career in title insurance in 2003 by a stroke of luck after spending 16 years in the semi-conductor (computer chip) industry as a Manufacturing Technician and Production Manager. When he decided to make a career change, there were two specific things that were important to him – the opportunity for continued growth and immediate rewards for key achievements and milestones. Ernest joined Fidelity National Title, serving as Assistant Vice President and Sales Manager, a change that has given him both the opportunity to grow and achieve.
Today, Ernest manages a team of 8 individuals who cover Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia, Santa Fe, Taos, Chavez and Rio Arriba Counties. His depth of experience in the industry along with his past experiences in management have made him invaluable in the development of business to business relationships within the real estate community throughout New Mexico. Ernest leads a motivated team that works together to meet the needs of their customers, providing a consultative approach to service and marketing solutions to grow revenue for their customers.
Ernest was a part of the FNF Presidents club in 2009 and exceeded over one million in sales revenue every year since. He participated in the creation of a “Short Sale” program from 2008-2011 for Albuquerque and surrounding counties, which helped to facilitate smoother short sale transactions for his customers. His specialties include: Training, Strategic Prospecting and Planning, Short Sales, Identifying Alternative Business Sources, Business Planning, Real Estate Market Trending and Marketing.
Ernest was born and raised in Albuquerque, spending many summers in his family’s home town of Santa Rosa. He worked alongside his grandfather who owned various small businesses and he learned the value of a dollar, hard work and integrity. Ernest enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring the mountains and lake sides of beautiful New Mexico, as well as maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
