Katie Stufflebeam was born and raised in Austin, Texas before moving to Waco and joining the firm. Her intelligence, work ethic, and people skills were quickly recognized and Katie was fast-tracked into her current role as Escrow Officer, where she has excelled in mastering the complexities of a challenging industry.

She graduated with honors from the Texas Land Title Association Title School, which motivated her to distinguish herself as a rising star. Her grasp of knowledge of the subject matter, procedural and rate rules, and escrow accounting made her an ideal candidate for advancement. In recognition of her growing skill set, TLTA admitted her to its Alex H. Halff Leadership Academy, which cultivated her initiative and enthusiasm and further groomed her to be a successful title professional and leader in the industry.

Katie subsequently earned the prestigious Certified Escrow Settlement Professional designation from TLTA, which is the highest professional certification available in the title insurance field. This elite certification showcases her vast knowledge across 28 key subject matter areas and establishes Katie as an industry expert. Certification is achieved by meeting eligibility requirements in work experience and education and successfully passing a challenging examination.

Prior to her career in the title business, Katie worked for the YMCA of Austin and Central Texas as a Program Director for many years. Her experience working with people of all ages in that role along with her generous spirit and friendly, kind demeanor unwittingly provided her with the servant heart mentality that drives her to go the extra mile for her many clients.


“Katie’s professionalism, communication skills, and efficiency are just a few reasons I will continue to use Katie and The Law Firm Of Walt Fair, PLLC for my closings.”

“Talk about going above and beyond! I dread it when I have to close files at other title companies. Many times my files are complicated and messy and Katie Hegefeld follows it through all the way to the end.

I’ve closed at every title company in town and I keep coming back to Katie. Everything is handled with efficiency and professionalism. She orders my surveys, my home warranties and works with my schedule to make it happen. And after I sign, my documents are all scanned and emailed to me and the money is wired to the bank. It can’t get any easier!”
— P.P., Investor

The process of originating real estate loans can be quite the endeavor but I can count on Katie to work with me hand-in-hand from Estimate to Closing. She takes the time to provide answers to my questions, keeps me informed of documentation orders, and ensures all paperwork is properly executed before funding. Katie is professional and personable; a winning combination in my book.”
