  • Issuing Agent for First American Title Insurance Company, Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company and Stewart Title Guaranty Company
  • Issued in excess of 1.8 Billion of title insurance in 2015


“Now that this transaction is behind us, I wanted to thank your entire team for the extraordinary support and attention given to the complex issues that continued to confront us, delaying the closing for over a year. I shudder to think where we would be today, or if we’d even been able to break escrow, had we not moved the account to your commercial group when we did. What took the other title company months to tell us we had a problem, took your team a mere couple of days to determine. Whereas your competition failed to assist with recommending a resolution, your team derived a clear and concise plan that we were able to implement to reconcile the issue.”

– B. Paul Avesian, Sr.
