  • About Me

    Hi there! Thank you for visiting my web page -- I am so glad you’re here. My name is Laena Drake, a title professional serving clients within my role at Old Republic Title. As you visit, I’m excited to share with you a few resources, including an informative video library, links to helpful websites, and useful documents to download and share.

    I made my debut into the title world by accepting a typist position I applied for out of the newspaper in 1997, not knowing what title insurance even was. Over the next two decades, I developed those initial skills to learn the intricate processes involved within each title transaction. Each one unique, each one new, each one exciting. This excitement fueled a drive to establish & run my own title company, supported by a team of true professionals for 9 years of my career.

    Leading this title company, I was blessed to attend the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program that not only shifted my overall personal perspective, but also my vision for upward professional movement. This program encapsulated the importance of thinking big picture and making a difference -- a difference I was eager to continue throughout title work.

    I am very grateful to have joined the Old Republic Title family in 2019. I am a believer that there are no accidents and everything really does happen for a reason. Old Republic is a perfect example of just that. With my newfound perspective and vision and my manager's support, I created one of a kind systems & processes to bridge the gap between consumers, their Real Estate Agents, Mortgage Loan Officers and Title Companies. Elevating the title experience by creating a more personable, more memorable experience.

    Once the systems and processes were running like a well oiled machine (thank you to the amazing professionals of TeamVELO), this created this drive to expand the vision. To make a difference through title on a larger scale, which brought me to my new role as Business Development, Director of Education and Team Leader for TeamVELO.

    “I won’t just have a job; I’ll have a calling. I’ll challenge myself every day. When I get knocked down, I’ll get back up. I may not be the smartest person in the room, but I’ll strive to be the grittiest.”
    Angela Duckworth - Grit

    I feel that my new role is a “calling,” truly. I am passionate about helping people connect with their best selves and discover their why, creating a more successful life specifically in the Real Estate industry. 

    I am excited to share my life and business experiences, along with my creativity to empower clients and friends to grow, expand and connect with who they authentically are, and to step into the gifts they are meant to be sharing!

    I have enjoyed working with Laena over the years, with my real estate clients and personal home purchases. Laena is a joy to work with and answers every question with kindness and professionalism. Leana has created efficient systems that track the title process and she's extremely responsive along the way. I know my clients will be well served, whether they are first time home buyers or seasoned purchasers. There is no one else I'd rather work with than Laena and TeamVelo!

    I've lost count of how many times I've worked with Laena over the years, what I do remember are the exceptional experiences every time I met with her! It's a huge sigh of relief having someone with Laena's expertise and strong communication skills guiding you through the final stages of the loan process and home buying experience. I always feel very comfortable knowing I'm making an informed decision, in huge part because of the transparency Laena provides. I won't work with anyone else!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Laena on many transactions over the years. She is kind, professional, very knowledgeable, and an absolute joy to be around. Her calm energy guides the closing process and makes you and your clients feel right at home. She answers all questions with poise and her team of professionals are an excellent support as well! We couldn’t do what we do without Laena and TeamVelo and would recommend them to anyone! Thanks for all you do for us!

    Working within the real estate industry, Laena Drake is one of the most professional individuals I have met in my career and also one of the most genuine. The level of client care that Laena provides throughout a real estate transaction is nothing short of excellent. From the initial introduction to the closing table, Laena is there every step of the way. It's an exciting process for people and Laena celebrates that energy with her clients! I will always feel trust in referring clients her way.
