TESTIMONIALS


"As a mortgage loan originator and real estate investor I have dealt with a number of title companies during hundreds of transactions over many years in the business. I use 1st Service Title and Closing whenever possible. They are professional, knowledgeable with a large enough staff to get things done quickly and efficiently in a nice office setting or at my office. Title insurance is available at many places, professionalism is not. I rely on 1st Service Title."
