North Star Title & Escrow is a full service title agency. We are experienced closing agents for sales and purchases, for both residential and commercial property. We will conduct closings at our office or at a location chosen by you. We are able to close anywhere in the State of Florida.
If you are refinancing your property, whether residential or commercial and your lender is requiring a lender's policy then it is your choice as to the title company. We can handle your refinance located anywhere in the State of Florida. With a copy of your prior owner’s policy we can provide a re-issue rate and save you money at the closing.
We can hold all escrow deposits on sales contracts in connection with a purchase either residential or commercial.
If your client owns property located in Florida and they are out of State, no problem, we are experienced at mail-away closings with no additional cost. If they prefer to still close in an agency office we can also arrange for a courtesy closing somewhere convenient to their location.

North Star Title & Escrow has an experienced short sale deptartment that works with the homeowner and realtors to help facilitate the short sale directly with the lender.

Wow!! What an excellent experience working with you Lois and your team over at Northstar Title. I love your system, I called a few times for updates, it always seemed like your title firm gave me information before I even asked for it, via email. It also seemed like you were my partner instead of just another title company. Thank you for making these transactions so easy and stress free. We would love to continue to use your title services and all its benefits.

Lois and her team have helped me for years. They are all beyond fantastic and eager to help. Especially when those problems happen and they do, Lois always keeps her calm and has a way to figure out the problem so we can continue to closing. I could not recommend her enough.
