GLENDALE, California, October 28, 2015 – A new, California-based title insurance company has been launched, serving credit unions, mortgage bankers, and institutional lenders throughout southern California and the entire state.
California Members Title Insurance Company, an independent company owned by California Credit Union, has received its certification from the California Department of Insurance. Serving both residential and commercial property needs, the company is a full service title insurer and settlement organization.
California Members Title Insurance is headed by President and CEO Frank Berriz, a four-decade veteran of the title insurance business. He worked in the title industry for several years before co-founding American Coast Title in southern California in 1988 and running the company until 2013, when he sold his interest in it.
“Our mission is to provide superior service at competitive rates, and deliver the ultimate in customer satisfaction. Being locally based, we can be more responsive in addition to providing excellent settlement services and protection for our clients,” Berriz said.
Berriz emphasized that California Members Title Insurance can help credit unions, mortgage lenders, and institutional lenders enhance their relationships with members and customers through providing top-tier service.
“We see ourselves as an ally of the lending community, able to give their members and customers the levels of care, attention, and service that they deserve and are accustomed to. Our senior management has great familiarity with credit unions’ and lenders’ processes, and we are committed to serving them.”
While most title insurance companies outsource many of their functions, California Members Title Insurance will do everything locally, Berriz pointed out. “For any of our credit union, mortgage banker, and institutional lender clients, they will be dealing with us right here in California, not talking with someone in an offshore call center,” he said.
