Marcos A. Aguilar
Marcos (Marc) Aguilar is underwriting counsel for Westcor Land Title Insurance Company, the largest independent title insurance underwriter in the United States with no direct operations. Marcos and Westcor share the same philosophy ─ instead of competing with their agents, they believe in supporting them. Since its founding in 1993, the company has remained the only major underwriter committed to providing resources and helping to ensure the success of their clients.
Since joining Westcor four years ago, Marcos has served as primary underwriting counsel for nine states in the Midwest as well as backup counsel for California, Arizona, and Nevada. He holds extensive experience in this area as he spent five years working for another large underwriter as a claims attorney handling cases across two dozen states, and he spent three years in private practice in South Dakota where he became proficient in civil litigation, defense work, family law, real estate transactions, probate, and estate planning, while practicing in state, federal, and tribal court.
Prior to entering the workforce, Marcos attended the University of South Dakota where he majored in communication studies and minored in English. He then went on to enroll in law school at the University of New Mexico School of Law. According to Marcos, his educational background and previous work experience has given him a uniquely diverse perspective enabling him to assist title agents in closing real estate transactions. “What is great about where I work is that I can use the knowledge I’ve gained combined with the progressive philosophy of Westcor to come up with creative solutions and make sound underwriting decisions to be a better partner to our agents,” he says.
