LOUISVILLE TITLE AGENCY LEADERSHIP
Owner/Attorney at Law
Chris, a Louisville native and University of Kentucky graduate, is the leader of the pack. After leaving a career in banking to pursue his law degree, Chris founded Louisville Title Agency and is proud to have worked alongside an incredible team of employees for more than ten years. His good nature, hard-working staff, and dedication to providing exceptional service have helped Louisville Title Agency to become a leader in the title insurance industry. Outside of work, this husband and father of four likes to kick back with his family, take in a basketball game (Go Cats!), and occasionally bet on the ponies.
Tammy, whose background is in the lending industry, has been with Louisville Title Agency since 2000. She now manages all of the office’s daily operations and works hard to ensure everything is running smoothly. The real estate world is always growing and changing, and Tammy faces each new challenge head-on to keep Louisville Title Agency at the top of their game. An avid horse enthusiast, Tammy spends her weekends rambling down the trails with her horse Charcoal and playing with her grandchildren.

Outside the office, Samantha enjoys spending time with her husband, two young sons, dog and horse. She loves traveling, being outdoors and just started her annual training for the KDF Mini-Marathon!

Sandy Jones – Escrow Officer – (502) 315-1876
Sandy spent more than seventeen years in the real estate industry as a processor before jumping at the chance to become a part of the Louisville Title Agency family. Her current role as an escrow officer has allowed her to continue in an industry she enjoys, while learning a whole new side of the business. Sandy understands that every client is unique and she gets a charge out of coordinating with lenders, brokers, and her own team to meet their needs. In her downtime, she likes to catch dinner and a movie or spend quality time with her son.
Amanda McClain – Title Officer – (502) 315-1659
Never one to back down from a challenge, Amanda will happily step up to the plate on even the most complex cases.

Right now, she spends quite a bit of time shuttling her kids back and forth for their many games and practices, but you’ll probably find her camping at Green River with a good book in her hands during the off-season.

She gets along with everyone and has never met a stranger. Definitely key components in customer service! Sarah loves spending her free time with her kids and grand babies. It’s no surprise with her outgoing personality that she also loves being with her friends when she’s not loving on those grand babies. Sarah, you’re an asset to this office!
