As a Real Estate agent or Mortgage Lender you build relationships with all kinds of people that can enhance your business. One of the biggest partners you have is your Northern Virginia Title Company. There are a lot of them out there too. They are all competing for the same business trying to stand out in the Title Company sea of Vanilla. Most Realtors that I know and now work with over at Stewart Title have told me that the reason they used the company (before me) is that they wanted someone local who could provide good service and could do mobile settlements. Those are all good things of course, but if you have been on my site much you know that I think of those things as a “job description” and the norm for any Title Company. Before you work with a Title Company and pick them as your teammate in business, OR just going forward you need to ask them a few things. In fact, there are 3 questions you need to ask your Northern Virginia Title Company. The answers may suprise you and make your re-think that relationship.
