Notable Transactions

CORE Title Services, LLC was founded by title insurance veterans. We were officers of Fidelity National Title Insurance Company who decided to start their own title insurance agency in order to provide more personal service than a large company can offer. Our priority is to offer first class, personal service to our clients. We at CORE like to consider our office to be an extension of the staff of our client’s office and we want our clients to know that we are here to assist them with any aspect of their real estate transaction that they need. Our CORE concept is to offer a boutique experience that focuses completely on our client’s needs. We founded CORE on the premise of eliminating the corporate philosophy and practices that are prevalent at large title companies and to provide the attentive service our clients expect and deserve.

After decades of managing successful companies such as STG Associates, a direct underwriting operation of Fidelity National Title Insurance Company and North Shore Abstract we know exactly what needs to be done to get your deals closed efficiently and expeditiously. With a specialty in commercial transactions as well as residential transactions, our staff utilizes their vast knowledge as well as the latest technology to get your transactions cleared and closed.

We would like to thank you for all of your business over the years as well as to welcome our new clients. We look forward to a bright future helping you with all of your CORE title needs.
