Cadillac News Women In Business: Katie Frier

 

Katie Frier sought a new challenge when she moved back to Cadillac.

 

She found one when she was hired at Cadillac Title a little more than two years ago. Her previous work in corporate real estate helped make the transition seamless.

 

Title insurance is a highly regulated industry, she says. “There is an extreme amount of research as part of every transaction,” Katie says. “It is a critical part of real estate that many buyers and sellers know very little about.”

 

The most important lesson she has learned on the job is to keep learning.

 

“In an ever-evolving industry, my goal is to stay current on my education and training so that I am able to continue helping people to achieve their dream of home ownership,” Katie says.

 

When she’s not working, she’s busy with her family, whom she describes as her inspiration.

 

“They challenge me on a daily basis and remind me that patience and simplicity are an important part of our lives,” she adds.
Between sporting events, band concerts, house and yard work, Katie enjoys relaxing, an occasional round of golf and walking the White Pine Trail.

 

Advice to young women: “Be engaged at work. Take advantage of the interactions you will have with employees of all levels. Someone just starting their career is likely to change jobs multiple times over the years. Take something with you each time and bring something new to your next employer.”
