Our Team

Marlene Benner

Licensed Title Agent

Marlene, the President and Owner of Prominence Title, was born and raised right here in Orlando, FL. She has over 33 years of experience in the Real Estate Industry since 1985 when she began her career as the receptionist for the Orlando Area Board of Realtors. In 1990, she went to work with a top producing RE/MAX Realtor as his Business Coordinator. It was here she learned the art of customer service, client communication and the value in treating other people as you would like to be treated. When the time with her mentor ended, she stayed with the RE/MAX Organization and took her experience to the title and escrow industry. Her employer opened a title company and Marlene served as receptionist/processor and learned all aspects of closings during her 5 years with the title company.

Marlene took the experience she gained over the previous decade and began to build her client base of realtors and mortgage loan officers for whom she soon became their preferred closer. After 2 years, she was approached by a former manager when at the Board of Realtors who asked for her assistance in opening up a new title company for another Real Estate Broker. She did so, and served as the co-manager there until she was sought out by an out-of-state investor who desired to move into the Florida market and opened a new title company. After a very successful first year in 2008, the market crashed, the investors pulled out and she was left unemployed—but not without clients and tenacity.

After some time doing freelance closings for various title companies, she grew tired of not being able to serve her client’s needs like she wanted to. She decided to connect with 2 mortgage loan officers that were her previous clients, and after a few months of planning, Prominence Title was born.

In 2017, after 8 successful years in business, Marlene’s desire to own her own company grew stronger. The timing could not have been more perfect as her business partners had an interest in pursuing their mortgage careers. Marlene bought out their interest and is now the proud owner of Prominence Title.

Outside of her busy schedule, Marlene enjoys spending time with her husband and taking “staycations” while exploring everything Florida has to offer. She’s also an avid NASCAR fan,  enjoys concerts and cruising. She has 2 amazing daughters and 5 grandchildren with whom she enjoys swimming, biking, building Legos, reading and playing games.

I enjoy working with the guys at Prominence Title and Escrow. The reason being that they are good at what they do and that makes my life simpler. They keep my sellers informed about the closing process and my sellers like them and that in turn makes me look even better. They will come to my office or sellers home for the closings which again makes life easier for everybody involved. I think that it is a no brainer to deal with a professional company that facilitates me having an easier life.
