Ernst Gives Back this Season with PRIA Awards

In the tradition of giving back, Ernst makes awards that will build a stronger industry


ALBANY, NY-December 6, 2016-Ernst Publishing Company, the leading provider of technology and closing cost data for the real estate and home finance industries for the past 27 years, announced that the company has made its 2016 award decisions. Providing awards and scholarships to industry participants is the way the company gives back at the same time it works to build a stronger industry.


This year the company awarded:


Its annual PRIA scholarship to Staci Hoffman, Register of Deeds for Jefferson Co., Wisconsin. The scholarship was made possible by a fund established by Ernst Publishing in recognition of the company's late founder, Carl R. Ernst and gives a hardworking public servant an annual PRIA membership. This is the third year the company has offered scholarships for this purpose.




Its annual Carl R. Ernst Founders Award to Carol Foglesong, assistant controller for Orange County, Florida. Ernst Publishing's founder and founding member of the PRIA board of directors created the PRIA Founders Award to honor an industry member who reflects the association's core values and who has provided proven, unparalleled leadership in addressing specific industry needs and standards.


"As part of our legacy we remain dedicated to PRIA and the core values our founder instilled in those of us who remain to carry on his legacy and the work he began," said Gregory E. Teal, president and chief executive officer of Ernst Publishing. "The Property Records Industry is vitally important to our concept of land ownership, a core value our country was built upon. We are very proud to continue the tradition of sponsoring these important awards. We consider it part of our responsibility to give back to an industry that has given so much to all of us."


Ernst programs will process nearly 250 million real estate transactions in 2016. Since the company was founded 27 years ago, Ernst has processed over 1 billion transactions and unveiled dozens of technologies and products that produce efficiency across the real estate industry. The company earned a patent for its search engine technology and CEO Gregory E. Teal is a Mortgage Banking magazine Tech All-Star. The firm estimates that its patented technology is in use for the vast majority of the nation's new loan originations and refinance transactions.
