Jill Branyan
Jill BranyanDirector of Business Development

Jill was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She received a bachelor of science from Bowling Green State University. After graduating from BGSU, Jill began working in Atlanta, Georgia at (NCC)National Cable Communications in Marketing & Advertising.

She spent the next ten years traveling with her husband who was a Major League Baseball Player. Spending time in over 12 large cities, they raised their children from the road to be together as a family. Making home away from home a better place was easy, because you get to be together as a family. Jill was a part of several MLB Wives Organizations, which play an important role in community outreach efforts with their commitment to many charitable causes.

When deciding where to raise their children, they chose Nashville as their home base.

They began investing in real estate and have fallen in love with the city. After all those years living on the road, Nashville is wonderful place to come in from the road and experience the city’s kindness & beauty. They love the schools, parks and most of all the people.

As Marketing Director for Smart Title, Jill gets to plan wonderful events, bring in new business, and maintain current business relationships. Jill loves working together with the wonderful team at Smart Title to ensure successful closings each and every day. Providing the best care to Smart Title clients is one of Jill’s favorite things about her job. Many times she is the client’s first point of contact. To quote Jill, “It is so rewarding get to know our agents and loan officers because each one of them brings a uniqueness to our business on a different way. Oh and what I like best about my job, it’s pretty social!”
