Todd Waguespack, a real estate developer in Baton Rouge, is also the managing partner of Level Homes, voted 2016 Fastest Growing Homebuilder by Builders Magazine. Todd’s company has built and closed on thousands of homes throughout Louisiana and North Carolina. With the sale of each home, there is a real estate closing. This is the transaction that hands over the keys to the new residence to their home buyer. If you pay close attention to Level Homes philosophy, as quoted from their website, Todd wants to make the closing more than just a transacton:
“Developing communities and building a wide array of homes ranging in price from $169,900 to $600,000, Level Homes exceeds customer expectations in all phases of the home buying lifecycle, from first time buyers, to those moving up, to empty nesters. The award-winning company employs a knowledgeable and friendly team to assist in the home buying process from beginning to end, instilling a culture with its associates that promotes homebuilding as a high-level customer service industry. From the day customers first walk into a model home or sales center to the day new home buyers receive the keys to their new home, the Level Homes’ team strives to make the experience seamless and enjoyable.”
In striving to make the experience indeed seamless and enjoyable, Todd knew that the closing process needed to be more than just a transaction. It needed to be part of the overall home buying process and it needed to also exceed the customer’s expectations.
This desire to make the closing process a part of the positive experience for the home buyer is what inspired Todd to want to partner in a people oriented title company. He now had 17 years, and hundreds of houses, to study what customers were looking for in a seamless closing experience.
Now he needed an attorney and closing team who could meet the needs. Actually, who wanted the same personal experience for their clients.
When Jacques Waguespack, same last name, no relation, discussed partnering up with Todd for a jointly owned title company….the desired partnership came in to being.
As the other partner in Partners Title, Jacques comes to the table with every bit as much experience with homebuyers and property owners.
Jacques has been a real estate attorney doing closings for 15 years, both in other companies and most recently in his own, Waguespack Title. In addition to handling real estate closings throughout his career, in 2010, Jacques went out on his own with a practice that focuses on all facets of real estate law. Jacques philosophy has always been a boutique approach. If he can handle 100% of a client’s legal needs in their real estate holdings he can keep the client fully informed, ensure clear and proper title to their holdings, and can be a part of creating this completely seamless process to property ownership – the closing process.
As consolidation continues to occur in the Baton Rouge title market, Jacques wanted to grow, but he wanted a different kind of partnership. He wanted to know how he could further differentiate his title company to attract property owners to his boutique approach. Just adding more people and more lawyers would only increase the need to focus on a constantly growing number of transactions.
Partnering with Todd Waguespack did just the opposite. Todd provided 17 years of real life customer research of what makes a positive closing experience for the customer. Together they can create a different kind of title company….a title company focused on the customer experience with the assurance and trust of sound legal services.
The perfect partnership.
