How can you recognize a green Stewart office?
You can tell when you're standing in a green recognized Stewart office. You'll see a lot less paper than you do in a standard title office. People won't be drinking from foam cups, and the recycling bins are easy to find. Green recognized Stewart offices are just different than what people are used to. In our program, our offices can be recognized as a level 1, 2 or 3 office. The higher the number, the greener the location. At the highest level, 3, the office can deliver a completely paperless transaction, from contract to close. Below you can see just a few of the requirements to meet each of the recognition levels.
