Owner & President
Mary Anne began her law firm career in 1990 and obtained her Paralegal degree in 1992. In 1997, she began as a law firm administrator where she reconciled escrow accounts. During that time, she identified a need to provide the real estate industry with a more robust solution for escrow reconciliation.
In 2020, Positively Closed was created with the intent of helping companies with back office support. In light of what the world faced, Mary Anne saw a need in the industry and set out on a mission to close the gap within the Real Estate Industry.
Donna has been in the title industry for over 20 years. She began her career with a small law firm in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She has about 15 years of experience in the resale and refinance areas and 8 years in the REO area of closings. Donna is well versed from pre-closing through post-closing. She moved to Georgia in 2014 to be near family and continued to work for a law firm in an auditing capacity for the REO department.
Donna sadly was laid of during COVID in March 2020 and was blessed to find the position she currently holds as Manager at Positively Closed. She knew from the moment she interviewed with Mary Anne Harris- this is where she wanted to be.
Ashley joined the PC team after starting in the Real Estate industry in 2012 where she worked for a law firm close to downtown Woodstock. Fresh out of college, Smith started out scanning files and doing small clerical tasks at a local law firm, while eventually becoming one of the top pre-closing paralegals. Shortly after COVID hit, she decided it was time for a change of environment. Smith had taken some time off to herself while traveling. After deciding it was time to return to work – Ashley applied for a position at Positively Balanced (PC's sister company). Although Smith originally had her eyes set on a position with PB, we saw a need for her skills and knowledge on the PC side of business.
Smith joins PC with many years of customer service experience and an extensive background in pre-closing and title curative work. She is an excellent problem solver with a can-do attitude that the PC team loves. As PC continues to grow, we are excited to have Ashley aboard and growing as one of the top Paralegal closers.
Brianna began with PC in late August and has been extremely fortunate to join such a positive and client oriented work environment.
She has been in the real estate & title industry for close to 5 years. Brianna began as a data entry specialist and quickly worked her way up to auditing files for compliance, processing commission checks, account reconciliation and preparing financial statements for a large real estate franchise before moving to the title side of real estate transactions. She prides herself on a high level of accuracy and understanding closings from both the brokerage and title side.
In addition to her work at Positively Closed, she is currently a full time student, pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Brianna recently relocated to Georgia, from Michigan, with her fiancé and 7 year old son. She is excited for where this new venture takes us.
