Attorney Nicole Marucci is the Chief of Operations at FGTE and is committed to optimizing procedures and processes to make the settlement process a seamless experience for everyone. Prior to joining FGTE, Nicole established and managed the Prince William County branch office of a large title company, increasing revenue by over $3 million in the first year.
Nicole also previously managed the Lake Ridge branch of another title company, where she oversaw the settlement processing and post closing teams and developed and implemented a new attorney training program.
Nicole has been in the Prince William County real estate industry since graduating from Michigan State University College of Law and being admitted to the Virginia State Bar in 2014. She has served on the boards of the county’s REALTOR® Association and of the Women’s Council of REALTORS®.
At FGTE, Nicole “likes that we’re smaller than the massive title companies and can focus on making the experience better on an individual basis.” She appreciates the “incredible rapport” the company has with realtors and enjoys being in the tight-knit community of Prince William County.
Day 3 Instructor
Meet your instructor, Seth Hurlbert! All Seth’s life he has been taking things apart, figuring out what was wrong, repairing it, and putting it back together. He used to work on everything from small equipment like lubrication injectors and pumps, to air compressors that were larger than a truck. He has done repairs both in his own home and for other people since he was a teenager. So when he needed a change in career, home inspecting seemed like a great fit.
He likes doing inspections because he is always meeting new people and learning new things. Even after 15 years in the business he’s seeing new and interesting things all the time! The best part of being an inspector is helping his clients really understand the home they are investing in. Sometimes it’s pristine, and sometimes it’s not, but at least they know what they are getting into. He enjoys talking with his clients and explaining not only what is found at the inspection, but also how their new home works. He feels that he is really helping his clients and that his work is important and appreciated.
