It's not the title company ... it's the escrow agent that makes the difference, along with the support staff. I have a definite preference, but geographical considerations can make it impractical to use one title company for all transactions. What I generally do is to "rate" those who my buyers worked with in those outlying areas ... and if the transactions were smooth, and the service excellent, I'd use that one for any sales in the area. Since everything is pretty much regulated by the state, it's definitely the people who make the difference.

Trulia,

That is very difficult to answer. Best in what regards? Multiple locations, great service, a cool snack bar in the lobby? Their fees are mostly regulated by the state. The wording in the title insurance is also predefined.

I use different title companies all over Houston, but my title company selections revolve around a great closer and excellent support staff that help walk the transaction to closing. Issues always come up, but a calm crew at the title company can help get any problem taken care of.

Experience counts and a good bed side manner does not hurt with buyers and sellers that are emotionally taxed and more than ready to get the transaction closed!

There are professionals and not so professionals at all companies. I have worked with all title companies and had good and bad experiences with all of them over the years. The good far outweighs the bad in my experience.

That question is as useful as asking who are the best real estate agents. Every area has its own set of specialists, which may not be available anywhere else.
