Help the community by answering this question:


Realtors can certain give you an idea of who the most reputable Title Companies are. Here in Colorado the Department of Regulatory Agencies or DORA keeps track of complaints filed by the public against Title Companies and others. Their website is DORA.COLORAO.GOV. So once you have narrowed it down to a couple of candidates go to the website and see if they hhave had any complaints.

Talk to a Realtor and see who they recommend. Best option is to see who has been in the area for a long time and are well known among the community.

The best recommendation is via a referral from your Selling Realtor. We are constantly working with many of the title companies in Denver and good Realtors will have solid relationships with the larger companies (who have stellar reputations).

BTW, most title companies have similar priced service fees and choosing one which has been in business for more than a few decades is a wise, wise decision. A professional title company will be able to walk Sellers through the process and should be easily accessible to the Buyers as well. (Location, responsiveness etc). Just give a ring to a few different companies and then decide which office feels best to you!

The reliability of the company and time they have been in business are huge. Often, smaller companies can fold.

I would look for the following:
1. Company's reputation. Ask your friends, relatives, realtor if they had good experiences with particular companies. Ask them if a particular escrow officer calls back promptly, explains all the processes in plain English and is knowledgeable and professional.
2. Location of the office. You and the buyer would have to go there for a closing, so it needs to be conveniently located, close to a highway, close to the house, etc.
3. Fees: ask what their fees include, like extended coverage and how much they are. You won't see a big difference here, but there is some.

Hope this helps. If you'd like a recommendation i would be happy to provide one, just let me know.
Thanks and good luck with your sale.

Your agent can help you find a reputable company that has a history of good service, the funds to handle an expensive claim should it arise and offers owner's extended coverage. Some title companies do not offer the extended coverage, but you will probably be asked to provide it in the purchase agreement.

Age and experience of the closer. Your listing agent should know a few good ones that consistently come through and make things happen when perhaps the other party does not have all of their ducks in a row. I know several excellent ones. Where are you located?
