Northwest Title & Escrow Wins Old Republic Title’s 2021 Shining Star Award

HERNDON, Va. — Northwest Title & Escrow (NWTE), a licensed, bonded title insurance agency offering residential and commercial real estate settlements in the Washington, DC metro area, is proud to announce that it has been honored with Old Republic National Title Insurance Company’s (Old Republic Title) 2021 Shining Star Award for Operational Excellence. This is the second consecutive year the company has received the award, demonstrating its exceptionalism in the real estate title and escrow business.

Old Republic Title, an underwriting partner to the business, grants the award to its authorized title agencies demonstrating the highest caliber of operational excellence. To win this award, a title agency is evaluated in six categories — from underwriting and settlement practices to customer complaints.* The company’s exceptional operations was the inspiration for establishing the award in 2020. This year, fewer than nine percent of Old Republic Title’s title agency partners received the award.

Jade Camara, VP of NWTE said, “We’re extremely proud to be a recipient of this prestigious award, especially considering the tremendous volume we have managed over the past few years. We work hard to ensure a smooth, accurate and timely transaction for our residential and commercial customers, and this is reflected in our performance with our underwriters.”

“It was our delight to award Northwest Title & Escrow the 2021 Shining Star Award for operational excellence,” said Kevin Pogoda, Old Republic’s First VP & Virginia State Manager/Northern Division. “They have demonstrated an excellent track record of sound underwriting and settlement practices, escrow management and compliance with our remittance requirements. They are truly a ‘Shining Star,’ setting the brightest example for others to follow.”

NWTE has been in business since 2009 and conducted over 12,000 transactions since inception. The company offers services in its Herndon, Virginia office or in the customer’s preferred off-site location.

*Old Republic National Title Insurance Company based its 2021 Shining Star Award for Operational Excellence on six categories: Underwriting and settlement practices, timeliness of overlimit approvals, escrow reconciliations (if applicable), regularity and age of remittances, claims history and customer complaints.
