Start a Career at Abstrax



Eric Lewis

Title Department Manager

Eric started his career at Abstrax, LLC in May of 2012 as a Property Report Specialist.  As the company grew he quickly adapted to changes, was willing to work additional hours, and always made himself available to answer questions and assist other employees.  By December 2012, he was promoted to an Account Representative managing one of the company’s largest accounts, working to streamline communication and work flow to the client.  Based on his success as an Account Representative, Eric was promoted to Assistant Operations Manager, and now balances project based work while also helping to oversee all day to day production.  In addition to being the Assistant Operations Manager, Eric took on further responsibilities as the Training and Quality Control Manager, where he is implementing training programs and offering solutions to staff in order to increase the accuracy and quality of all Abstrax’ products.


Most recently, Eric has been promoted to the Linear Settlement Services team, working hard and moving up within our parent company to become the Supervisor - and later the Manager - of the Title Department.

Elizabeth Barstow

Policy Department Manager

Elizabeth – or Libby, as most people here know her as – began her career with Linear in March 2015 as a Residential Policy Specialist. Throughout her employment with Linear, Libby has worked on Commercial Recording, Residential Recording, and Commercial Policy which has provided her with vast knowledge and experience to excel within the company. Libby's dedication to increasing her industry knowledge, paired with her prior company experiences and motivational skills made her the prime candidate for her previous role of Policy Supervisor. Her continued growth as a leader helped her transition smoothly to the role of Policy Department Manager.

Jennifer Cardona

Director of Cost Assessment

Jennifer took a position as a Land Records Searcher with Abstrax in May of 2010 when the company was still small, but was growing quickly.  Within months of being hired, Jennifer was promoted to Search Department Manager, and led a team of over a dozen searchers.  Abstrax’ growth was steady, and when she returned from maternity leave in February of 2012, Jennifer was managing a department of over 30 searchers.  She was subsequently given the position of Training Manager, where she ensured that Abstrax’ standards of quality were maintained.  In May of 2014, Jennifer was offered a job as a Closer with Abstrax’s parent company, Linear Title & Closing. Jennifer was closing over 100 REO sales per month on behalf of some of the largest banks in North America, and still enjoying working in a fast-paced office environment that continues to offer opportunities for advancement. More recently, Jennie has taken a new role within the Abstrax team as the Director of Cost Assessment.

Michael Madden

REO Pipeline Manager

Michael took a position with Abstrax, LLC in the winter of 2013 as a data entry specialist.  Given his speed, accuracy, and enthusiasm, he quickly became a resource to his coworkers and was identified by management as a candidate for advancement within a few months.  Michael joined Abstrax’ Land Record Search team, which involved an increase in responsibility and expertise, and continued to find similar success in multiple departments.  Subsequently, he was offered a position as an Account Manager for one of Abstrax’ largest clients.  In this position, Michael was able to distinguish himself by increasing efficiency and quality on the company’s highest-volume product. In May of 2014, he was promoted to a position at Linear Title & Closing (Abstrax’ parent company) working with the same client.  Michael now expedites real estate closings and handles escalated issues, which requires use of the skills and in-depth understanding of land records he developed during his tenure at Abstrax.


Most recently, Michael has been promoted to REO Pipeline Manager at Linear. This new role entails a front to back monitoring of all files pending a closing in the pipeline, with escalated emphasis placed on files that have title issues or are otherwise held up by problems that may not fall directly within other departments' purviews. He also monitors and provides data analysis on common holdups, strategizes time and effort-saving practices to increase team efficiency, and directs the closers to specific actions they might take in order to expedite their closings.
