Conyers, GA – Rockdale County Clerk of Courts Ruth A. Wilson is proud to announce that her Real Estate Indexing Team is now 100 percent certified by the State of Georgia as experts in real estate indexing standards. Clerk Wilson’s team achieved their respective honors by passing the State of Georgia Indexing Certification Exam. The exam is a professional development opportunity the Clerk of Courts Office offers to employees in its Real Estate Division and is integral to providing superior service to citizens in Rockdale County.
“The citizens of Rockdale County deserve the assurance that elected officials are making every effort to serve public interests by improving operational efficiency and integrity,” Clerk Wilson said. “This is no small accomplishment for Rockdale” she continued.
Out of Georgia’s 159 counties, there are a total of 41 certified indexers within just 18 Superior Court Clerks’ Offices.
“The Georgia Superior Court Clerks Cooperative Authority (GSCCCA) developed indexing standards for the State of Georgia to assure that real property records across all 159 Georgia counties can be indexed with accuracy, uniformity and consistency,” GSCCCA Project Manager Phil Kobierowski said.
The certifications add another layer of professionalism in the quality of service in the Clerk’s Office. In addition, the certifications are a great benefit to title searchers and citizens who depend on the accuracy of real property records. Karen Benton, a local title examiner stated “I have a high level of comfort in the indexing. This is valuable in a field where there is no room for error.” She has come to appreciate the “spectacular” service offered by the Clerk’s Office.
Members of the fully certified Real Estate Indexing Team include veteran Deputy II employees Janet Williams, Linda Moss, Teri Jones and Chief Deputy for Real Estate and Operations Mary Burgess, who shepherded the team to this achievement. This team adds value every day on behalf of the public while demonstrating the highest professional standards and exemplary customer service.
