HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, through its title and closing companies and strategic partners have come together to form a National Title & Closing Network, providing “brick and mortar” title and closing services in all 50 states, the company has announced.
According to the company, the Network provides a single point-of-contact for all title and closing services nationwide but with transactions handled by premier local providers. Members of the network have access to a national technology platform that manages transactions online with a web-based work-flow platform featuring file tracking, file uploads, open orders, closed orders and all the details in between.
“A national network of local providers is quite a different service offering from the large centralized platforms,” said Greg Mason, managing director of Title Services for HomeServices of America. “We believe in the model in which your title work is done by staff familiar with the local property records and the closing is done by professional closers who have knowledge of the transaction documents.”
“This unique network gives the mortgage lending and servicing community what it has always wanted: a national presence with a local touch,” added William Porter, SVP of Sales and Marketing for Texas Pioneer Title and a member of the Title & Closing Network. “Lenders and servicers will have faster turn times and the local expertise they need to navigate through the title and closing process unlike they ever had before.”
The network includes large state and regional title companies and title companies affiliated with six of the top 10 real estate brokerages in the country, including such companies as Realogy, Long & Foster Real Estate Inc., Crye-Leike, Inc., Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, Prudential Fox & Roach, and Windermere Real Estate. The network members have closed over 500,000 transactions in 2010.
