Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. Paves the Way

Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. was started in 1991 as a local and regional title and document company that just served their local area. Since then it has grown into one of the nation’s largest and most proficient document providers. It is headquartered in Palm Harbor, Florida and has over 600 employees in three states.


Eight out of the top ten leading national retail mortgage and lending companies choose Nationwide for their primary source of mortgage documents. The key to a successful mortgage document provider is that they can provide the right document nearly all the time and that the documents arrive promptly.


Nationwide has a 99.98% rate of compliance and only a .78% rejection rate. The meaning of these figures is that nearly 100% of the time, the documents arrive on time and they are accurate.


Much of the success of the company’s ongoing relationships with clients is due to the excellent training and quality of the employees who work for Nationwide. New employees receive immediate and in-depth training about what they will be doing and when they graduate onto the floor they are monitored closely by supervisors until they master the level of skills where they work.


Nationwide is a great place to work because employees have lots of input into processes that can make their jobs easier and more efficient. Management listens to the employees when they have suggestions, and it makes for a better environment in the workplace.


Compliance is the metric that measures the satisfaction of the customers, or the mortgage companies and the lenders. If you have ever been involved in a property closing, you know that the proper lien verification and titles releases available to transact business and transfer the property. If there are errors or worse yet, the wrong documents are received, or they are not received at all, the result is a delay.


John Hillman the company CEO says that if you want to have good compliance you have to train for it. Employees have to know what is expected of them, and if you train that way and monitor the results, it gets everyone on board, and the results are just better. Many companies talk about compliance, but results are just not there. It is a constant process, and it works if you work at it.


The future looks bright for Nationwide because the market share that they enjoy just keeps growing, and that is the pattern that the company’s management predicts for the future.

With a specialty in luxury real estate, Town’s brokers will certainly appreciate their new office surroundings and know how best to use them in impressing clients.

Town Residential has been establishing new standards of excellence since the doors first opened, and they just raised the bar for others to follow a little higher.


Town’s methods are really quite simple, and obviously hugely successful. Brokers strive to come in first on sales, rentals, and new developments leaving all competition far behind. No matter if clients are buying, selling or have some new idea in mind, brokers at Town provide the same level of quality service to every deal. Clients know this before they ever walk in the door and are already confident they made the right choice in a real estate firm before the first word is spoken. With the drive, determination and solid business principles that stand behind Town watching what they do now should be interesting.

It is undeniable that advances in technology have impacted every economy throughout the world, and real estate in New York City is no exception. According to an article recently published in the Huffington Post, technology has impacted NYC real estate most noticeably in four distinct ways.

First, money in being funneled into the New York City tech market at an unprecedented rate. Therefore, more tech companies are popping up in the city and need space in which to house their businesses. Nineteen percent of leasing activity in the city from 2014 came from tech companies. Rents in neighborhoods housing a large number of tech companies are at an all-time high as a result of demand. Tech companies are also looking for unique and individual space. With the competition to recruit new talent being so fierce, companies look to create an attractive work environment. These companies are renting unique space and asking landlords to renovate space if it is does not meet their specific needs. Next, the tech industry has revitalized some of New York City’s older neighborhoods. Tech companies are bringing fresh ideas and young people who want to spend money to the neighborhoods in which they lease, resulting in an increase in new and trendy bars, restaurants and shops. Finally, the tech industry has resulted in an influx of bright, educated and talented young people to the city. This demographic wants to find the hot new neighborhoods, transforming these areas as they go about their daily lives.
