HOUSTON (July 27, 2005) - Stewart Title Co. has opened a new operation, Stewart Title of Summit County, with offices in Dillon and Frisco, Colo.
"These towns are convenient to the Breckenridge and Keystone ski areas, in a fast-growing area for second-home sales," said Sandy Capell, Colorado affiliated office group president, Stewart Title Co. "We are increasing our market coverage across the state and knew we wanted to have offices in Summit County."
Margaret Williams, a seven-year veteran of the local title and real estate industry, serves as office manager. A native of New Hampshire, she has lived in Summit County for 15 years.
"I'm really excited about being with Stewart Title," said Williams. "In a second-home market such as this, all of the technology that Stewart Title offers - and that we are using - is what our buyers, sellers and real estate agents are demanding. With buyers and sellers who are located all over the world, we are especially excited about SureClose®, Stewart's online transaction management system.
"The real estate agents and lenders who we have shown SureClose have been very impressed," she added. "This is where real estate closings are headed - onto the Internet."
Stewart Title of Summit County's offices are located in Dillon at 325 Lake Dillon Drive, telephone number (970) 513-4469, and in Frisco at 720 Summit Blvd., telephone number (970) 668-3558.
