Stewart Title of Northern New England relocates Portland office and expands services to better serve its customers
A new president with a depth of title and legal experience is leading Stewart Title of Northern New England (STONNE) into a new era with a skilled staff at a new location.
“Our new location in the The Old Port allows us to be centrally located, and with validated parking available in the Fore Street parking garage, our customers don’t have to look for a parking meter or walk far to visit us for closings or other business,” said Kerry Kimball, Esq., president, STONNE.
“Of course, since we are one of the few closing operations to offer remote closings at no additional charge, some of our customers don’t have to venture to our office,” added Kimball. “Whether you are a real estate professional, a lender, a developer, an attorney or a home owner, we have a full lineup of residential, commercial and refinance transaction services for you.”
While he is relatively new as STONNE president, Kimball is not a new face at the STONNE operation or in the title business. After receiving his undergraduate degree at Colgate University, Kimball received his Juris Doctor degree in 1996 and began working for Northeast Land Title as a title attorney. He became president of East Coast Title, and recently became the president of STONNE.
Today, Kimball oversees the seven STONNE offices serving Maine and New Hampshire. He also is the senior underwriter, overseeing all the legal aspects of every closing, including complex commercial transactions.
“We are very proud of the team we have at every level of this company,” said Kimball. “Many of these are people who have worked here at STONNE for years, and are dedicated to both the process and the outcome of each transaction. Our staff is absolutely the best, and we commit to providing what we call ‘magnificent service’ from our initial contact to the final closing and beyond.
“What we offer at Stewart Title is an operation that is locally run, backed by the financial strength and technology expertise of a highly rated parent company,” said Kimball. “When you close with us, you can count on the underwriting strength of Stewart Title.”
To serve the needs of the real estate and mortgage communities, STONNE has seven locations: Auburn, Augusta, Bangor, Brunswick and Portland, Maine; as well as Bedford and Portsmouth, N.H. and a closing office in Nashua. More information about STONNE can be found at http://www.stewartmaine.com.
