Steve Bogan recommends Rick Bashore


Robert Valdez is my Ticor agent. Robert and his assistant have gone above and beyond exceeding all expectations on many occasions. Having spent 38 years at a title company myself I know how important it is to provide that extra effort in certain situations. I rate Robert, his personal secretary, and their entire staff as perfect 10’s for service.

Allen Buchanan, SIOR recommends Andrea Mittelstaedt

Principal and Shareholder

We enjoyed a relationship with a competitor prior to utilizing Andrea. This was built over many years - and was quite successful. Andrea was consistent in visiting our office and was always friendly, helpful - never pushy - and respectful of our existing title relationship. Circumstances created a need for us to “give Ticor a try”. Andrea and her team were AWESOME! One team member - David Noble - the Ticor Title officer - has guided us through several minefields which produced successful closings. We have now closed five escrows with Andrea and she has become our “go-to”. Give her a try. You won’t be disappointed.
