About Zwiren Title Agency, Inc.
Zwiren Title Agency, INC. (ZTA) is a full-service title and settlement agency founded by Paula Zwiren. Our staff works as a fully engaged team, each member bringing a vast amount of experience, expertise and professional integrity. Our intentions are transparent allowing us to bring honesty to all our transactions. We have respect and appreciation for everyone and all parts of the process.
What Does a Title Company Do?
Think of a title company as the final stop on the road to a real estate or financing settlement. Prior to settlement, the title company will research the ownership history of the property to determine what is required to reach the parties goals. At the settlement table, the title company collects and distributes funds from the transaction, facilitates the transfer of ownership of the property, and binds title insurance. We have fiduciary responsibilities to all parties in a transaction and may only proceed forward when all parties come to an agreement.
Applying risk analysis, knowledge of the laws and a thorough read of the research on the property, we set up requirements to issue a policy and exceptions affecting the property. We work through them with the customer and structure our requirements and exceptions to offer insurance that suits the customer's transaction objectives.
Please Be Advised: Zwiren Title Agency, Inc. is in the real estate business only.
We do not sponsor Starbucks car wraps, private shoppers at Walmart or any other activity or entity. Please be careful. Many fraudsters try to impersonate title companies. The only people who receive checks in the mail from us are those involved in our real estate transactions. The persons impersonating title companies are trying to obtain funds and sensitive personal data.
