Proper Title LLC
has announced the opening of a new office in Park Ridge, Ill. The firm now offers a total of nine closing locations across Chicago and its suburbs. Proper Title completed a record number of closings in 2019, with residential closings up 24.3 percent .
“2019 was a banner year for Proper Title, and we’re honored to have so many real estate attorneys, brokers and lenders entrusting us with their closings,” said David Zawadzki, vice president of business development for Proper Title. “In response, we are expanding geographically to meet their needs. Although we already have a strong presence in the far northwest suburbs as well as Chicago’s North Side, we wanted to provide a convenient suburban location along the city’s northwest edge. Park Ridge was the ideal spot as it is easily accessible to the O’Hare submarket and the I-90 and I-94 expressways.”
The new office offers 3,500-square feet and five closing rooms to accommodate its stream of residential and commercial closings. This new office is expected to have one of the firm’s highest closing volumes, just behind Proper Title’s Loop and Northbrook locations.
Launched in 2013, Proper Title was recently recognized as one of Chicago’s “Best Places to Work 2019,” an annual ranking of 100 companies compiled by Crain’s Chicago Business, and was a 2019 recipient of the “Excellence in Action” award from Fidelity National Title Group for the fifth year in a row.
“This past year has been an exciting time for Proper Title with the expansion of our Loop office, addition of our St. Charles office, hiring of top-tier professionals, and the awards our firm received,” said David Garside, executive vice president of title and escrow operations for Proper Title. “The incredible increase in transaction volume that we’ve experienced is a direct result of our valued customer relationships, which is founded on delivering excellent service by our seasoned and experienced team.”
