Greetings from Cowlitz Title!
:: Find Us On Facebook
:: Birthdays!
With Spring around the corner, I am already starting to feel the energy and the positive vibe within us all!  And based on the uptick in the purchase mortgage applications in recent weeks, I foresee a fruitful spring and summer for our real estate community. 

With that, we want to be your title company of choice, so remember to select Cowlitz County Title  when writing up your next offer. 

Yours Truly,

Got Investors?


Many Realtors have chosen to spend much of their time marketing and working with investors for an obvious reason:  they typically have cash!   And many times they have property that will be relinquished or purchased in the process, so be sure and discuss their options of doing a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange.  This is a sure way to solidify and relay to your client that you are working for them and are looking out for their best interest!  For more information regarding Tax Deferred Exchanges, visit this website...
