As Cove Parkway continues to develop, Transnation Title Insurance Company has moved from Main Street to join the businesses moving to the Cottonwood backway.
Formerly known as Transamerica Title, Transnation moved its escrow and title insurance service to 859 Cove Parkway. It has been in operation in the Verde Valley since the mid-1960s and has offices in Sedona and Cottonwood.
"The Verde Valley has experienced phenomenal growth in the past 10 years, and we believe that will continue," stated Manager Betsy LeTarte. "We had outgrown our previous location at Viotti Village, and our new office should accommodate future growth."
LeTarte, raised in Clarkdale, has been in the escrow business since 1985. Escrow officer Marlene Davenport has worked in the mortgage lending business and has been in the escrow business for five years.
Other officers include Business Development Manager Kitty Bush, who has lived in Yavapai County for 23 years and has worked in the escrow industry in the Verde Valley since 1986, and Escrow Assistant Laura LeLusche. She grew up in Cottonwood and has worked in the real estate industry for three years.
Secretary Diana McLain also grew up in cottonwood and has worked for Transnation since September 2000.
"Our primary sources of business are real estate agents and lenders," LeTarte said. "The buys and/or borrowers that they work with choose a title and escrow company to handle their real estate transactions. We also handle the transactions between ‘for sale by owner’ buyers and sellers."
The main Transnation office is in Prescott.
The Cottonwood office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 634-3500.
