Leslie White: Hello! I am a Senior Escrow Officer with CentraLand Title Company, which is a locally owned title company in Bell County. My real estate career has encompassed several facets of the real estate industry, such as working in real estate law, originating mortgages for a local mortgage company and an Escrow Officer/Manager in title, with close to 20 years in the title industry. I truly enjoy working alongside lenders and realtors to deliver a positive closing experience for one of the largest purchases one will make in their lifetime. What I love the most about this business are the relationships built with everyone involved in each transaction and feel that life is about connecting with others, developing those relationships and working together to improve the community that you live and work in.
Annie Griffey: I am a Escrow Officer with 11 years experience in the title industry and strive to make your closing experience the best it can be. One of my favorite quotes by Jay Danzie is "Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, and how you leave others feeling after an experience with you is your trademark". I look forward to building my trademark with all of you in Salado.
Jennifer was raised in Central Texas and has always loved animals. As she found more and more of her free time being spent with dogs, she decided to make her hobby her business. She quit her corporate job in Houston and returned to Salado in 2008 with the idea of opening The Dog Spot. With the help of God, close friends and family she was able to create the shop that exists today. The business has been so successful that The Dog Spot opened their expanded location in 2019. Jennifer is married to her husband John and has two children along with her dogs, Lulu and Belle, and her cat Snax.
