That’s why Origin Title and Escrow has developed an online Closing Cost Calculator and ensures all parties are aware and informed of closing file status at all times — so everyone knows about issues that may be holding up the process. You save time, aggravation and surprises.

In Our Clients' Own Words

Beth A.

Mortgage Banker

John Bennett takes such personal interest in my clients. His integrity is incredible, his knowledge is spectacular and his personal touch with the clients at closing is remarkable. He has worked with me on loans to take care of tax liens, judgments, sewer and water rights and other title concerns. He handles these complex title issues with ease.

Jasmine K.

Out of State Client

John Bennett and his team are very professional. Each and every client is considered important, and they go the distance to make closings easier for borrowers. Each title order is processed in a timely manner, and John takes care of our out-of-state orders, which is a great help. I would not take my business anywhere else... as they are the best!

Mark M.

Mortgage Branch Manager

As manager of a mortgage branch, I have referred hundreds of clients to Origin Title in the past two years. John Bennett's staff is second to none and he is always willing to take extra time for a customer's particular level of need. John understands that the lender, agent and attorney are a team focused on the best interests of their mutual clientele. Given the choice, he is my first and only call for closing services.

Faye S., CLTC

Refinance for Couple

We had the pleasure of requesting John as our closing attorney for our refi. He has a great Closing Cost Calculator on his website which quickly showed what our closing costs would be (almost a $500 savings!) Our closing took less than 25 minutes since John had all of the paperwork in good order. John is an expert in his field and I would highly recommend him and Origin Title for your closing, refi or title search.
