President's Message:

Value

We started Title West with the idea that we could do it better. We knew we could bring greater value to the consumer by providing an unrivaled product while maintaining fast and efficient delivery and the highest level of service. We built a title company on a solid foundation of knowledge, experience and energy. We accomplished this by bringing in some of the top people from the escrow and title fields with many years of experience and teaming them with aggressive, fresh, smart young people with new ideas. It is our goal that every customer leaves Title West with the confidence that they have received the finest product and service a title company can offer at a fair and reasonable price. In other words, they receive value.

Integrity and Honesty

We are committed to competing in this industry and growing this company while at the same time always maintaining the highest level of honesty, integrity and ethics. We know these are values you naturally expect from a title company, and no one has higher expectations and standards than those we set for ourselves. There may be less expensive and easier ways to run a title company than the way we do it, but this would involve cutting corners and compromising quality. We have invested untold dollars in automation, training and facilities in an effort to make this company unlike any other. We are title and escrow professionals and not just a creation of slick marketing.

Innovation

The role of the title company is to provide a safe, effective and efficient means to facilitate the transfer of title to real property and the securing of the loans which fund this process. In today's world of technological marvels and advancements, the old methods are just not good enough anymore. Title West is a recognized leader in the industry in the areas of land title records automation and electronic commerce. We have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in computer hardware and software in an effort to provide our customers with all of the advantages and efficiencies available thorough this technology.

Personal Satisfaction

It has always been our overriding goal to establish long term relationships with everyone we deal with. We do this by letting everyone know that we strive to be the best at what we love to do and we have fun doing it. When you have this kind of positive attitude you provide the kind of quality and service the customer deserves.
