Our Three Uniques:


Our closers and examiners are all licensed attorneys. Our team includes real property law specialists who will look at your transaction with a unique perspective that allows us to analyze and problem solve.


Your closing team is assigned when we open your file and will be with you throughout the process as your main points of contact. They will be reviewing contracts and commitments early on to ensure we proactively find solutions to any barriers that may come up throughout the transaction. You can contact any member of your closing team at any time – we are all working for you.


Our core focus at Guaranty Commercial Title is to create rewarding relationships. Our processes are designed with our clients in mind. We strive to develop long term relationships with our clients so that we can anticipate their needs. We also get to know their business model and can look at transactions from their perspective. We pride ourselves on not only having loyal clients, but great friends. When a client needs a favor, they can call on us.


Guaranty Commercial Title is a thriving EOS-run company! We use Traction, a solutions-orientated Operating System to run our business. We’ve aligned our business strategies with Traction which provides us with the ultimate platform to grow and improve. We center our work on what matters most – creating rewarding relationships and our clients’ success. We do so through the proven EOS model, with its focus on traction, issues, people, vision, data, process – and more! Thanks to our EOS facilitator, Sue Hawkes of YESS! who has given us guidance since 2015.
