Meet Our Team

Trinity Title of SWFL was formed through a partnership between successful real estate and title professionals. With input from our real estate partners, Trinity has fashioned systems and processes designed to exceed the needs and expectations of the successful real estate agent and their team. Those same systems and the people who employ them also ensure that Trinity's real estate consumers (buyers and sellers) are treated to the most exceptional transactional experience in the marketplace. From day one of the contract through closing, consumers will know what we are doing and what it means to them.

Trinity's mission is simple. We will never leave you wondering. Our years of experience have taught us that real estate is stressful. The deals we manage are often the largest financial transactions of people's lives. They can be complex and unfamiliar. Constant and straightforward communication serves as a remedy (or . . . at least a reliever) to that stress.

Our Staff

Valerie Black
Operations Manager


A lifelong educator and retired principal, Valerie Black made title her 2nd career so that she could be closer to her granddaughter (well . . . sort of). She cut her title teeth during the short sale flood beginning in late 2008. Her outstanding organization and never-give-up work ethic made her an incredibly successful short sale processor.As short sales subsided, she parlayed her skills and experience into becoming an expert in all things title. Since 2010, she has helped to manage a successful southwest Florida title insurance agency with her son, Chris. From the beginning of your deal to its closing, you can count on Valerie to treat you the way you deserve to be treated - exceptionally well.
Chris Black
Manager & Attorney


Chris' first job out of law school was working for a national title company with an office in Naples, Florida. After a year and half with that company, he opened his own title insurance agency in January, 2007 (great time to start a title company!). The title industry allowed Chris to blend his legal training with his entrepreneurial spirit, which appealed to him greatly. As a business owner and title agent, Chris' focus has been on leveraging technology and automation to create a high touch experience for consumers and real estate professionals alike.
Russell Daly


Russell comes to the Trinity team with over 20 years of diverse closing and real estate experience, having sat on every side of the closing table at one time or another over the course of his career. An attorney licensed in both New York and California, hes represented buyers, sellers, homeowners, lenders, title companies, builders and other corporations in all manner of residential and commercial real estate transactions. Before moving to Florida, Russ worked in California for the 2 largest title insurance companies in the country, First American and Fidelity National Title. Always eager to share his experience, he believes that an educated customer will always feel more comfortable and invested in the closing process. His motivating principle has always been to remember that, although he may be at his ten thousandth closing, its probably that buyer's or seller's first, so make their experience a positive and memorable one.
