Barbara Burke has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Vanderbilt University and master’s and doctorate degrees in communications and a law degree from Florida State University. Deciding that was enough school, she joined a law firm in Naples, Florida, representing condominium associations. A year later, she moved to Orlando and began working in the title insurance industry.

She was also general counsel for a large Florida title insurance agency, focusing on residential and developer business. In 2002, she established her own company, consulting for affiliated business arrangements and providing education on title insurance issues through her Real Estate Law Series® company. In 2012, Barbara sold her company and joined First American Title, creating online, webinar, and classroom training programs for employees and agents nationwide.
In January 2019, Barbara returned to independent contractor life to focus on writing fictionalized real estate fraud stories and children’s stories, along with creating her Persuasive Communications training program, all under the www.bbswords.com banner. Barbara currently serves on the Florida Bar Association’s Unlicensed Practice of Law and Title Insurance Committees, in addition to working with the national Property Records Industry Association.
