Best Website-Title Agents

A website homepage has the ability to say so much about a business and a brand. Title companies should give the best first impression possible of your company to any potential customers. This award will go to a new website that gives consumers the information they need about the real estate transaction in clear concise language while underscoring the company’s values for the consumer.

2019 Winner
Commerce Title
Commerce Title’s homepage gives consumers the impression that their closing is going to be a smooth celebration. The website’s language reassures consumers that Commerce Title has their closing under control. The website also provides consumers with easy access to title insurance data as well as contact information for every single person in the office.
2018 Winner
Florida Title Insurance Co. (FTIC)
FTIC took an intentional approach to making a mundane product, such as title insurance, fun. The homepage is interactive: The cursor causes the main water photo to “ripple” as you navigate the page. The links, including “Title Insurance for Dummies,” “Who Pays for What,” “70+ Ways to Lose Your Property,” and “Mission Kreplach,” details the company’s values, provide useful consumer information in an entertaining way.

Best Website-Underwriters

In the past, the title insurance industry has focused on selling their services to professional partners, but now consumers are increasingly choosing who they work with throughout the entirety of the real estate transaction. This award highlights a new site created by an underwriter company that showcases the company’s values, their services and provides consumer information and resources to help educate the consumer about title insurance.

2019 Winner
Old Republic Title Insurance Company
Old Republic’s homepage establishes a strong message: “We serve our policyholders with strength, stability and more than a century of experience.” The homeowner section is easy to find and packed with useful information that is broken up into palatable bites.
2018 Winner
Westcor
As the first point of contact many people will have with Westcor, they wanted the website to reflect both company culture and their Number One asset that makes Westcor: their employees. They greatly simplified the design of the site, added new features that make browsing, “contact us” and getting more info on becoming an agent much easier.
