The QOZ program was an element of the Tax Reform and Jobs Act of 2017.

These gains are essentially trapped in the assets: The owners will not sell the assets because they do not want to pay tax on the gains.

The members of our front office team are the first people you meet when you walk into a Fidelity National Title office, and it’s safe to say that we simply couldn’t function as well without their stellar service. These women — Kristy Tyhurst, Jessica Olivares, Jessyca Hanson, and Lindsey Swanby (who just moved to an admin position) — assist clients, have an answer for every question, and even keep stashes of juice boxes on hand for young visitors. We asked them for the secrets to their detail-oriented success.
We work in an industry where we determine how much we make in a year — it’s not decided by some far-away corporation, and it’s completely within our control thanks to the incentives and commissions that power our work.
