She co-founded a telecom-munications business in Front Royal, and has worked or lived in Warren, Shenandoah, Page, Fredrick, Fauquier and Loudoun Counties. Jane married Joe Silek in 1996, and following the birth of their son, Jane left the business world and stayed home with her boys.
Back in 1990, Joe Silek co-founded Professional Titles Incorporated
(now Blue Ink Original). In 2011, Jane came onboard as manager. Jane is now a licensed title insurance agent and settlement agent.
In addtion to running Blue Ink, Jane is a volunteer puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and has raised two dogs who are now working guide dogs. If you stop by the office, chances are you’ll be greeted by the current puppy in training.
Jennifer was born and raised in Warren County. She came to Professional Titles Incorporated (now Blue Ink Original) back in 2001 and began working as an Abstractor. Soon after, she became an Assistant Settlement Agent and eventually a Senior Settlement Agent. Jennifer pursued instruction to become an insurance underwriter and is now a licensed Title Insurance Agent, Settlement Agent, and Abstractor. Jennifer is an expert in her field and manages and trains new employees (and Jane) and is the only title insurance agent in the area who does her own local abstracting (title searches).
Newly married, Jennifer and husband Gary enjoy spending family time with their combined four children. They also have a family business,
2 Rent 4 Fun, that provides inflatible bouncy houses, water slides and other fun party supplies.
Elizabeth joined Blue Ink Original in 2016. She brought with her years of experience as a Loan Officer in the mortgage banking industry. Beth and her husband Tom, also in mortgage banking, moved to Front Royal from Southwest Florida in 1998 to forward their respective careers. Following the birth of their first child, Elizabeth left banking to stay home with her and soon thereafter their second daughter was born. Both now teenagers, she decided it was time to re-enter the mortgage world, so she joined the team at Blue Ink Original as a Settlement Agent and is also in training to become an Abstractor.
Beth and her family enjoy the mountains here in Front Royal, but still make trips back to Florida for their beach fix. They have two dogs at home, so Beth is right at home with our Guide-Dog-in-Training here at the office.
