Birmingham Title Agency is dedicated to serving the needs of residential and commercial clients in the metro Detroit area.

Real estate deals are often complicated, sometimes messy, and always high-stakes. Our work gives security and confidence to everyone involved.

We aim to produce happy buyers, sellers, realtors, lawyers, and lenders. These parties are all our clients, and we are committed to meeting the title and settlement needs of each.

Why Choose Birmingham Title Agency?

Our Speed and Thoroughness

We’re always ready to get the deal closed at a moment’s notice. We pride ourselves on our ability to help our clients close with unparalleled speed, without sacrificing professionalism or thoroughness.

Our Commercial Expertise

Most title agencies send commercial deals to the underwriter, causing additional delay and expense, and most won’t even deal with business asset transfers. We can do it all in-house, because we understand how commercial deals work.

Our 1031 Exchange Company

1031 exchanges provide sellers and buyers with substantial tax benefits. Our in-house exchange company can handle 1031 exchanges from beginning to end as an accommodation to our clients.

Our Legal Background

Real estate transactions, as well as title insurance, ultimately rest on legal foundations. Our executive team has been practicing business law for decades. We have the answers to our clients’ questions about the legal aspects of their deals.

Our Professional Connections

Real estate deals involve a lot more than title insurance. Our partner businesses can make sure you’ve covered all your bases, whether you need a lawyer, real estate agent, or mortgage broker. Oh, and if you need title insurance in the Imlay City area, or downriver – we’ve got that covered too.
