“Professional – Results oriented – Proficient – Efficient. My experience with Seaver Title Agency can most simply be described in those words. As a fellow real estate attorney, I appreciate most the proficiency and expertise that Seaver’s extensive legal team offers, especially Phil Seaver, with his broad base of knowledge on land title issues. Dave Barris, attorney in the Bloomfield Hills office, does not miss a beat and is most helpful in resolution of most any issue that presents itself. I truly do not think I could find this service elsewhere. Closings are convenient with offices pretty much anywhere that we do business within Macomb and Oakland counties. I try as much as possible to steer our deals to Seaver, and in any large transaction, insist on it.”
