30 years
Greetings from Cowlitz County Title!


Check out our new Escrow Team!  



  You may have noticed some new faces that have joined the Cowlitz County Title team!  Melanie Gywnn (pictured, left) is our new Escrow Assistant and will be teaming with Theresa Byrd, our Escrow Officer/LPO (pictured, right) to ensure your transactions close smoothly!  Theresa will be stepping in to fill Melissa's desk and will continue to take care of her clients as she has for the past years as Melissa's right hand. 



  Melanie has two children, Cody & MacKenzie, and one granddaughter, Marlie.  She and her boyfriend, Phil, also enjoy their two dogs, Reagan and Rudy.  She's lived in Cowlitz County for 33 years, and loves to entertain, travel, can food, fish, and spend time with family and friends.  She's hoping to start learning to play golf soon (so feel free to give her some tips next time you come in!). 


We're excited about this great team!

Documentation:  It Matters!  


wire-bound-pad.jpg There is often so much paperwork involved in a real estate transaction, that it would be easy to forget how important that documentation can be.  Read this article to discover how one agent was saved from a lawsuit by keeping proper documentation.


Happy Birthday to You!

Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." And then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn't know what to do! I'd knock on people's doors and go, "Trick or treat." "No thank you."
