Land Title Guaratee Co.
Tell us about your business:
Land Title Guarantee Company is a Colorado-owned and operated company. We opened our doors March 1, 1967 with five employees. We now have more than 50 offices across Colorado and employ more than 500 people. The local Grand Junction branch employs 15 of those people.
How has the title industry changed since you got started in the business?
The title insurance industry, much like the rest of the real estate community, has become increasingly more regulated over the years. Providing consumers information and protection has been the driving force behind most of that change.
What exactly is the role of a title company?
Title companies provide insurance to the party purchasing a property and the lender providing the loan. Most times the choice of which title company to use falls on the Realtor, lender or builder to decide as they work with title companies on a more regular basis than the average consumer.
What should consumers look for in a good title company?
Not every title company is created equal. Like car or home insurance companies, consumers should look for financially stable companies that are the most knowledgeable in the industry. They are protecting your biggest investment… your home.
What would you say are Land Title’s strengths?
Local. Stable. Professional. Resourceful. Collaborative. Throughout our 45-year history, these characteristics have been fundamental to providing the best title and closing services. We continue to invest time, money and resources to ensure our company can guarantee these characteristics to every customer.
• Local products and services mean a lot to people. We have produced and serviced all of our title and closing products and services here in the state of Colorado.
• Local does not mean small. We respect that our customers entrust us with their businesses, their relationships, and often the largest investment of their lives. So we invest in people, resources, and technologies that ensure the protection and privacy of the funds, information and data shared with us. We want our customers to take comfort in the financial stability of Land Title and our underwriters.
• Stability does not mean big. We work hard every day to maintain a small company culture that includes being technologically progressive; maintaining a thorough understanding of the markets and business segments we serve; and nurturing an experienced team of knowledgeable title, closing, and support professionals.
