Brenda Hansen is a Settlement Processor, working in the Tysons Corner office. She started as an abstractor for a North Carolina law firm in 1989 and was hired in 1991 as an abstractor with Commonwealth Land Title in Fairfax. She has worked with settlement companies and law firms in the Fairfax area, in various capacities including abstractor, post closer, processor and after obtaining her title license in 1995, as a title agent. Previously, she worked for 8 years with George Hawkins and Barney Goodman as their title agent and part-time processor and has spent the better part of the last three years on the lender’s side producing loan closing packages. Brenda grew up in Minnesota, but Virginia has been her home since the early 90’s. Rather than battle Minnesota winters she prefers Virginia’s climate to putter in her flower garden, enjoy daily walks with her dog, and spend weekends with her three grandchildren on her daughter’s family farm in Staunton, Virginia.
