First American Title helped me often at the courthouse steps for auctions and wholesale properties, I'd say try them. Lexi Hutchings is my girl there if you want a referral, email me through my profile.

Hi Brea -- I think you will find any title company "friendly" to business. Introduce yourself to as many title reps as possible, ask your question, listen, learn and you'll be able to find the right match for you and your clients. Good luck.

I would think most any title company would be investor friendly. In Oklahoma they all are.

WFG National Title Company is one I have personal experience with. Double closings can be easily done, but it's of course contingent on the timing to achieve a marketable title from a cloudy one (from seeing your concern regarding liens, judgments or most other difficult title encumbrances).

Another one is appropriately named  "Investors Title" located in both Santa Ana and Glendale, CA. I have no personal experience with this one.

Most title companies are investor friendly, but there are a few that are just a little bit more geared to investors.

I'm not from California but we use Title Companies and I don't know any that aren't investor friendly.   Looks like you have a few California agents that have given you some options.-Kasey

What does that mean "investory-friendly title companies?" A title company is a title company.

I would think most title companies would be interested in doing investor work. Ours in my area will close anything.

Brea, let me know if you have any questions.  I work mainly with investors.  What do you mean by "investor friendly"?  That could mean many things.  Title companies out here are all regulated in what they can charge, what they can do for you and several of them (at least 4 big ones) are owned by Fidelity National Title, so policies tend to be the same.
