5 Things that makes Clarke Title different from other closing companies

  1. Our attorneys and closing agents have accumulated decades of experience in real estate closings.

  2. Clarke Title has an "open door" policy for agents and lenders to ask questions, so we may assist them in preparing for your settlment. We make ourselves available for real estate agents and lenders to contact attorneys after hours, should the need arise, to answer questions and resolve issues.

  3. Attorneys at Clarke Title are consistently requested to provide education services for brokers, agents, and lenders.

  4. We focus on quality. Clarke Title is not a title factory. We do not focus on completing the most number of closings, but rather to complete closings accurately, with the least problems, and minimizing problems after the closing.

  5. We are continuously looking for ways to improve the settlement process, either through process improvements or adopting new technologies that allow us to offer you the best closing experience possible.
