We have had the pleasure of working with Title Security for more than 20 years. They have been a key part of the success of our communities by timely and accurately handling our customer’s closing transactions with personal and professional attention. They have a “can do” approach to working for the customer and getting homes closed. Katie Matson is a pleasure to work with, very experienced, and knows how to make things happen, resulting in happy homeowners for JMC Communities. ~Gail Cooper, JMC Communities
Gail Cooper, JMC CommunitiesThe staff at Title Security really made my home buying experience comfortable and painless! As a licensed Title Agent myself, I did not want to use my own company for privacy reasons. Title Security was able to work seamlessly with my real estate agent, the selling agent and my lender. I would highly recommend Title Security to anyone buying a home in Pinellas County.
Heather Miller...Thanks Katie! You are a fine representative of your company, a nice person, and a lovely lady. Your professional, but personal way of handling the closing was awesome, nice, like no other experience. My best wishes to you for continued success!!
...That's because we know you respond so quickly ♥. Timing can make or break a deal... Thank you for making mine happen!
