Your step-by-step guide to working with us:

Step 1

Initial Comprehensive Review of Your Project Scope

Our team engages with you, often onsite, to understand your project’s specific challenges and opportunities.

Step 2

Single Point of Contact

We assign and maintain a single-point responsibility for every client. Our single point of contact relationship management focus, combined with the leading technology systems we incorporate, has proven to streamline commercial property transaction processes.

Step 3

Personalized Connection to World-Class Underwriters

We are an independent policy-issuing agent of First American/Fidelity Title Insurance Company, and you can rest assured that our expertise is only bolstered by the strength of an underwriter with over a century of industry experience in the DMV region.

Step 4

Streamline the Closing Process through Our Secure Portal

Our digital platform utilizes multifactor authentication, encryption technology, and state-of-the-art wire transfer verification. We also offer complete transparency and increased efficiency by providing you 24/7 access to critical information on any device. Manage multiple transactions in one place, have convenient access to closing process status, and know what tasks remain until final settlement.

Step 5

Coordinated Closing Dates

We consult with you and each of your buyers to schedule a day, time, and location for the signing of final closing documents. We have four convenient office locations available. Alternatively, if approved by their lender, we can conduct the final settlement via remote notary, or at their property. This flexibility results in less stressful closings and happier homebuyers.

Step 6

Record and Store all Documents

As legally required, certain key closing documents are recorded in the public land records of the county and/or city where the property is located. We also electronically store all closing documents on a secure server in the cloud, to afford you hassle-free access to your records as may become necessary in the future.
