Once we receive a title request from a lender or a fully signed purchase agreement from the parties or their realtors, we get started on your file.  A title search is performed on the property and information from the parties or their realtors is gathered to get the process under way.  From there it grows to a team effort between the lender, the title company, and the real estate agents. Our technology will keep you informed every step of the way.
