Michigan Title Agency "Leading Edge" Celebrating Renewed Home Ownership Market On Its First Birthday

Michigan Title Insurance Company Closes its First Anniversary with Hundreds of Successful Real Estate Closings

After first opening its doors only a year ago, a Michigan title agency Leading Edge formed by veteran mortgage professionals has been busy processing more than a hundred transactions a month for a wide variety of clients, from bankers to those who prefer to sell their own property without paying high commissions.

Leading Edge Title, based in Farmington, specializes in title work for banks, lenders, homeowners, licensed Realtors and other real estate professionals, including attorneys.

It is the first new title insurance company to be approved to conduct title insurance business in Michigan in years by leading national underwriter First American Title Insurance Company.

Professionals with more than 50 years of industry experience manage the company, leading it to its first anniversary with a succession of satisfied clients. "Our wide range of experience means we know what is needed to make every transaction a successful one," co-owner Mark Heppard said.

Leading Edge Title co-founder Kara Gresser said the company was formed to provide title insurance services specially tailored to meet the different needs of every type of client.

Their affiliation with both the American Land Title Association and Michigan Land Title Association allows the company to provide current and continuing education to its staff regarding all issues facing the real estate industry. "You can always count on receiving expert service from one of our trained professionals," Heppard said.

Michigan has been leading the national housing recovery, as evidenced by the success of Leading Edge Title's inaugural year.

This past spring Michigan's average home price rose by 11.3 percent. That represented the fifth highest increase in the nation behind California, at 15.6 percent; Nevada, with 14.8 percent; Hawaii, 14.1 percent; and Oregon, which saw an 11.18 percent rise.

The title company specializes in providing fast commitments and flexible closing times with low closing fees to make every phase of a real estate transaction run as smoothly and swiftly as possible. The agency specializes in title work for home sales, refinances, and handles mortgage refinancing. It provides special services in all areas, focusing on Realtor business as well as for-sale-by-owner transactions. They also provide commercial title insurance services.

Their services are specifically tailored to meet the needs of every client, especially owners who want to put their own property on the market. The title company provides an owner with a complete package of all the necessary forms, information and services to help them complete the sale of their home.
