KATIE HEGEFELD, ESCROW OFFICER
“We have used this firm’s services for over 15 years and find them to be a very valuable vendor relationship for our bank. Walt Fair’s knowledge of real estate law, combined with his life-long experience in working with title insurance underwriters, ensures that we won’t have any surprises along the way when getting transactions closed for our customers.”
“My wife and I have been clients of the Walt Fair law firm for 30+ years we have always been treated with respect and taken care of promptly. I have always trusted Walt and his associates to document our business endeavors. I highly recommend this firm.”
“Great people. They made everything easy and explained everything step-by-step.”
“We don’t seek out vendors. We seek out strategic partners – those who strive to treat us the way that we treat our customers. Walt Fair and his entire crew are the best partners. They work alongside us to help meet our customers’ needs. They are always willing to work smarter, longer and harder to accomplish the impossible. And, they serve as a great resource to all of our lending staff.”
“Walt Fair's title office is the best in town! They go above and beyond to make sure the closing process goes as smoothly as possible. Their customer service is wonderful and they are great at communicating every step of the way. There is no problem they cannot tackle and Walt is extremely knowledgeable!”
“I’ve worked with Walt and his staff for 15 years and have always received prompt and professional service. Whether it’s working through a title issue, preparing loan documents or getting Walt’s professional opinion about a complex real estate transaction, Walt is my “go to”.”
“As a real estate investor, there are few things in my process as important as a solid team at my title company. Walt has the perfect balance in his office of detail-oriented escrow officers, solid communicating escrow assistants, and, when you need it, the legal expertise to get the hard deals done.”
