Douglas Plummer, Managing Director
Brief Background: Douglas Plummer has a BA in Economics from Rice University and an MBA from Harvard University. He worked as a management consultant for 10 years, providing strategy and operations consulting services with Renaissance Solutions and later at Ernst and Young’s Strategic Advisory Services Group. Douglas served as LCRA’s in-house Operations Consultant for their Power Division for three years until he co-founded the Midtown Office of Independence Title in 2006. Douglas has grown the Midtown operations from 1 employee to a multimillion dollar company with staff of 17.
Douglas is an active member in his community. In addition to serving on the THA Board, he serves on the Board of Trustees for the Long Center, the Executive Committee for the North University Neighborhood Association, the Co-Chair of the Rice University Real Estate Alumni Group and the Co-Chair of Sparky Park, a pocket park he helped establish in 2007.
Business Philosophy: I believe in karma. Not in the sense that if we misbehave in this life we come back reincarnated as a cricket, but in the sense that the good works we do, and the kindnesses we show to others, usually come back to benefit us in ways that we can never imagine. I believe that the Midtown Office is unique amongst other Title Offices in Austin due to its extensive support of non-profits in the community.
I am happiest when I can use my extensive network to help others. I tend to prioritize building lasting relationships over focusing on short term gain. I think that being ethically rigid and yet operationally flexible with clients creates a client base that respects you and sticks with you over the long haul.Contact
