Title & Escrow Agents

When buyers are purchasing property or a lender is using real estate as collateral for a loan, a title review is performed to ensure that clean, unencumbered title is passed to the new owner. As agents for several top national title insurance companies like Old Republic National Title Insurance Company, Fidelity National Title Insurance Company and WFG National Title Insurance Company, we provide title insurance, where appropriate, to protect our the interest of our clients in the property in the event that unforeseen impediments may affect the ownership of the land.
