Register Pam Hurst Thanks Hamilton County Voters

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I can honestly say that it doesn’t seem like it has been 20 years since I was first elected as your Hamilton County register. I appreciate the opportunity to serve you the next four additional years. 

My favorite part of this job is helping the customer with real property questions and problems. However, I have enjoyed all the administrative challenges and rewards. 

I will give a compliment and a thank you to our staff.  They have been and remain customer service oriented. I can attest that they love helping the customers because of who they are, not necessarily for the reason that I asked them to be a good customer servant. 

The Register’s Office is the custodian of the public record for the documents allowed to be recorded by Tennessee law. Some of those records are deeds, power of attorneys, deeds of trust (mortgages), and subdivision plats etc.

If any Hamilton County citizen needs a deed copy or has a real estate property question, please call our office at 209-6560 or email us at register@hamiltontn.gov. Our website is http://www.hamiltontn.gov/register/. 

I want to say, “Thank you to the voters that elected me and allowed me to serve.”
