  • Samah and her team at Mega Title were efficient and professional in
    handling our refinance closing. I had used them in a prior refinance
    and was so impressed with the attention to detail that I came back
    this time again. They are accomodating to your schedule, meet the
    deadlines so they don't waste your time and most of all treat you as
    if you are their most important customer at all times. I couldn't ask
    for better service - they took care of everything. Just had to show
    up and sign.
  • As a real estate attorney, I have dealt with numerous title companies.
  • I recently refinanced my home. Mega Title really made my life much easier.
  • I really appreciated the excellent service and caring attitude during my refinance.
  • I can't express how impressed I am with your customer service!
