    Hello, This is a great pleasure that you are reviewing my profile. Much thanks to you. I have three years of experience as a data typist and Data proofreader in the real estate title insurance project. I could key into the current Title information, including Vesting, legal, Mortgages (sub-item, like Assignment, Subordination, Modification), Judgment and Tax, which all should be typed into Microsoft word, after processing the 2nd QA they can paste into the Data Control System. During several documents I handled, 97% accuracy rate with 50 wpm is my performance I have been keeping in. The keying and Qa process are the two important elements in the data entry, therefore if you find a person to type some data or transcription, I am the one you are looking for. Feel free to contract me at anytime. Best Regards, Evita
