Margaret Van Herk recommends Bryon Bashore


I highly recommend contacting Bryon Bayshore
for your title needs. He takes service to the next level and never gives up. Through his tenacity we were able to close a transaction that others had rejected. Our transaction was very time sensitive. He was willing to work after hours through the issues and help us find a resolution
quickly. I truly appreciate him going the distance!

Dan Hayes recommends Andrea Mittelstaedt

Home Loan Consultant

Like many people, I'm always reluctant to try a new vendor for an important service - you never know what kind of service you'll get, and face it, change is never easy.

I had several colleagues recommend Andrea and her team for title services, and I decided to give her a try. She and her team do an outstanding job, with a fast turn around, and she always returns my call as soon as possible - and we know how busy title people are these days! I would highly recommend Andrea and her team for your next order.
