Clear Title, Escrow & Settlements, Inc. go out of their way to make sure you are satified. Bill Tribus will close loans after hours, weekends, holidays, in your home and even in the McDonalds parking lot. Bill explains the closing documents to my customers in a way that educates them, but also makes them smile, and they leave the closing feeling special. I would put Bill and his staff up against any other settlement company in our area and Clear title would clearly be the best.

My husband and I have had several closings on our house – we bought it, refinanced into a 30-year loan; when things got tough we refinanced again when we had to put on an addition, and refinanced for hopefully the last time in August of 2010. We had the pleasure of Bill Tribus of Clear Title, Escrow & Settlements handling our closing this last time.
I have to admit that there was nothing wrong with our first three closings, but the fact is that we enjoyed our closing with Bill far more than the others – and it wasn’t because we were saving money this time instead of taking out more. Bill went over everything in a way that made it clear that he understood exactly what each document said, and I hate “legalese”. I like things simple and entertaining. Bill provided that. He was completely professional, but at the same time he had a dry wit that came out in his explanations. He made us smile and even laugh, even though it was 6:00 at night and I don’t think a single one of us had eaten dinner.
Simply put, Bill Tribus was wonderful. Bill, Kevin and I thank you very much for your patience, good humor and professionalism.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my respect and gratitude to Clear Title and Escrow. Clear Title & Escrow is owned and operated by William (Bill) & Vickie Tribus. I have known Bill and Vickie for the last 10 years. I started working with Bill when he was employed by another title company in Northern Virginia.
I appreciate the whole staff at Clear Title and Escrow. Their work ethic and eye for detail has far surpassed any company I have ever used. I have been in the mortgage industry for 25 years. I have worked with many different companies during that time. Bill and his staff will go to any location and close a loan at any hour.
I would like to tell you about a recent transaction that I had. The client was a repeat client and due to work schedule we had to close at his home. He lives in Bloomery, WV. It was an hour drive from Front Royal. This home is located in a very remote location of West Virginia. The home is located on a one lane winding icy road with no sign of life. Mr. Tribus and I closed the loan at 4:00pm in a snow storm. The client was very happy and of course I was too. Tell me how many title companies would do that for anyone? I have had loans closed on weekends or 9:00pm in the evening. They are 100% customer driven.
I highly recommend Clear Title and Escrow. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call. I would be more than happy to speak with you on their behalf.

4. Kim Johnson – Mortgage Loan Officer,
I would highly recommend using Clear Title and Escrow for your loan closings. I have closed several loans with them and have encountered the highest level of professionalism and competence. They are always willing to go above and beyond the normal course of business. For example I had a client who was leaving town for two weeks and needed their loan to close that day. The loan package didn’t get to Clear Title and Escrow until almost 5:00pm. The closer agreed to drive to the client’s home and close the loan. The clients were very pleased that we were able to do this for them. It has been a pleasure working with a company who works just as hard to get a loan closed as I do.

5. Beth Medved Waller – Sales Associate
I would like to express my appreciation Clear Title and Escrow for their role in helping me close over 5.5 million to date in 2008. I first used Clear Title last year after a Weichert colleague in addition to a respected local lender mentioned their satisfaction with the company. At my first closing with Bill, I learned more about the lending and settlement process than I had learned in any previous settlement in my 6 years in the business. I have been amazed by the professionalism, timeliness, communication and thoroughness I have benefited from since choosing Clear Title to handle my settlements. The entire staff is always friendly and eager to go above and beyond to meet my client’s needs, and is willing to accommodate any situation I pose. From after hour closings to quick closings to hand-holding with first-time buyers to “thinking outside of the box” to solve problems that arise, I am always confident that my clients are in wonderful hands with Bill and the staff of Clear Title.
I’d be happy to answer any questions you have regarding my experiences with the company and can be contacted at the above numbers and email at any time.

The closing went great. Deal was super. I really liked dealing with Tim (CTES Agent)—he came to the house at our convenience. Answered all questions with patience and smarts. I recommend this kind of closing over the RGS kind. I’m telling my other re-fi pals about Clear Title.
7. Bret Hrbek
Bill and his staff have closed several loans for me and my family. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are efficient yet take the time to make sure you understand the documents that you are signing. I trust Clear Title and wouldn’t use anyone else.
8. Michelle Napier, Senior Loan Officer
Clear Title and Escrow is great to work with! The staff is knowledgeable, respectful and great to do business with. The settlement agents are accommodating and very professional. I highly recommend Bill, Kevin and the whole staff of Clear Title for your next real estate transaction.

I always appreciate the opportunity to work with Bill and the crew at Clear Title. They are excellent at what they do, always prepared, knowledgeable, thorough, and communicate well. That is why I have even referred family and friends to use the services of Clear Title for closings. Thank you.
