She earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Texas Tech University and took graduate courses in fine arts from Wichita State University. After completing her studies, Julie moved to Albuquerque and worked as a Courier for a local title insurance company. Over time, she advanced to Escrow Assistant and then Escrow Officer.

Debbie Talley, Escrow Officer, is a title industry veteran and a valued
member of the Old Republic Title escrow team. Last month, she
officially joined our Jefferson branch office in Albuquerque, NM.

An Albuquerque native, Debbie has lived in Albuquerque for nearly
40 years and has been working in the title industry for nearly four
decades as well. She is highly skilled in closing residential real estate
transactions and works tirelessly to ensure the typically stressful
process of buying, selling, or refinancing a home is as seamless as
possible for the customers.

Her goal on all transactions is to uphold clear communication and
ensure the closing is on time and accurate. She takes pride in
having a very strong work ethic and vows to make every transaction personal and genuine to make sure everyone is taken care of throughout the closing process.

In her free time, Debbie enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She has three adult sons and one granddaughter, Sienna, who - not so secretly - is her favorite out of the bunch. During the summer, they all love to spend their weekends camping and boating.
