Erin is passionate about cultivating value for her clients, and is truly elated when she is able to secure an inheritance for an unknown or missing heir who may have otherwise been left out, but the discoveries that led her down this path initially came as a shock.
After college, Erin’s driving work ethic was first put to the test as a private investigator, but most of her skills were honed while she worked as an investigator and property research analyst for a multi-billion dollar hedge fund, where her job was to research and analyze properties which could become assets for the hedge fund. It was during this work that she first encountered the obstruction that would become her passion: unclaimed estates.
While performing property analysis and research, she frequently came across abandoned properties that couldn’t be purchased because they were part of an estate that had no named heir, or the heir couldn’t be located. This recurring anomaly was quite an obstacle for her analysis, and after encountering unclaimed estates more and more frequently, she decided to dig a bit deeper. Upon discovering how many hundreds of millions of dollars go unclaimed, she was saddened, but also a bit skeptical… how could there be so many unclaimed estates? Why was there nobody to claim these assets?
When she learned about the complexities of the probate system and how difficult it is to navigate, she perceived an extreme injustice that seemed almost ironic to her: unnamed heirs who don’t have the financial resources to pay for legal assistance are commonly unable to legally claim an estate they’re entitled to because of how difficult or time-consuming the legal process is. Erin’s outrage quickly turned into the steadfast determination she’s known for, and that’s when the ideals and values of EstateCo were born.
As CEO, Erin’s primary role is to carefully oversee the successful navigation of each case file to a rewarding conclusion. She is comfortable with complexity, which makes her a natural fit for managing intricate and sometimes convoluted particulars. She says she is thrilled with her work because she gets to use her affinity for research and investigation to help resolve a problem she’s extremely passionate about. She feels nothing is more satisfying than restoring legacies.
