Brentwood, Tenn. - After 16 years of serving primarily Williamson and Davidson counties, Realty Title & Escrow Company., Inc., a real estate title and escrow company, has adopted a new business plan to broaden its services to a larger number of real estate professionals, including builders and developers, in Tennessee, announced President Michael T. Bates.

Realty Title has expanded its operations regionally to include Memphis, growing from one to nine branch offices with over 40 employees and serving 22 Middle Tennessee counties as well as in the Greater Memphis area. Plans include adding four more branch offices by year end, with two of those offices being located in Franklin and Goodlettsville, notes Bates.

The company's growth has prompted a relocation of its headquarters. Realty Title has secured over 3,000 square feet of leased office space in a commercial building currently under construction at 1187 Old Hickory Brentwood.

Realty Title is a real estate title and escrow company that conducts closings for the sale and financing of residential and commercial properties. It is approved to close transactions for most mortgage lenders doing business in Tennessee. Realty Title is the authorized title insurance agent for title underwriters Fidelity National Title, Stewart Title Guaranty and First American Title Insurance Company. Branch offices are currently located in Brentwood, Green Hills, Smyrna, Hendersonville, Mt. Juliet, along with three locations in Memphis (Bartlett, Cordova and East Memphis).

"Since implementing this business plan, Realty Title has experienced significant growth," said Vice President Teresa Beard. "With our branch office expansions, we anticipate further growth in our number of transactions. While we have grown significantly, our goal remains to provide the same quality of service Realty Title has been know for over these past 16 years."
