Proper Title Promotes Sabrina Bier to Director of Digital Media + EducationMarch 26, 2021
Proper Title, LLC, the Palatine, Ill.-based title insurance agency serving the residential and commercial real estate industries, today announced it has promoted Sabrina Bier to director of digital media + education. In this newly created role, Bier will create strategic networking opportunities for real estate professionals, moderate and facilitate the programming and content for educational seminars, and utilize digital media to collaborate, connect and educate the real estate industry. She will also manage employee education initiatives.
“In her nearly five-year tenure at Proper Title, Sabrina has spearheaded exceptional educational programs for real estate attorneys and brokers that helped them advance in their careers and develop critical industry relationships for continued success,” said Kim O’Donnell, vice president of business development at Proper Title. “But that’s been just part of Sabrina’s magic in connecting people. She has also been able to harness the power of digital communication and social media to benefit not just our clients, but our internal teams, too, which has been a huge game changer for us. Sabrina is definitely an industry leader among her peers.”
Shortly after lockdown in March 2020, Bier created Virtual Real Estate Chat, a Facebook page where she posted video interviews with some of the area’s most well-known brokers. She also moved attorney-led CLE training courses online and began facilitating virtual Q&A forums where attorneys could get the latest industry updates from Proper Title leaders on topics such as Chicago zoning certifications, transfer stamps, curbside closings, operations at the Cook County Recorder Offices, gap insurance and housing market updates among the different municipalities in the Chicagoland area. She also quickly created out-of-the-box virtual networking events for brokers and attorneys to grow their business though professional relationships.
“Proper Title has been on an outstanding growth trajectory in its eight-year history, and I’m proud to have initiated many educational and outreach programs that have positioned us as a reliable, go-to title insurance agency that real estate attorneys and brokers can trust,” said Bier. “I’m excited to undertake a bigger role at Proper Title to help promote our high standards and continue to build our reputation in the industry.”
Bier already has her eyes set on educating Chicago’s real estate community on one of the newest apps for collaboration – Clubhouse, an audio-only platform. Every Tuesday at 8 a.m. Central time, she hosts a room on Clubhouse focused on training real estate brokers on how to use Clubhouse.
“Residential real estate agents adapted to the virtual world quickly,” Bier said. “We’re all Zoomed out, so the audio situation could be the next iteration.”
Bier has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Florida Atlantic University and is a licensed Realtor in Chicago. She has been a speaker, trainer and presenter at weekly Realtor events throughout the Chicagoland area, with audiences surpassing more than 400 attendees. She is also a board member of ProperGiving, the philanthropic arm of Proper Title.
