Scott and Ann Parsons founded Reliable Land Title Corporation in 1999 on the premise that a title and closing company with a local focus and national caliber expertise would be successful. Bringing their 60 years of collective experience to bear they hired the best and brightest and as a result Reliable employs the most professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff in Florida.
The first transaction to come through the door, which was also the first to close, was a construction loan for the construction of Bill and Jean Yates dream home, Casa de Yates, on East Bay and Tom King Bayou. Sadly Bill is no longer with us but we want you to know that the fact that Bill, who was well known as a stickler on details and procedures, entrusted us with this transaction on their dream home gives us immense satisfaction.
From that auspicious beginning Reliable has grown at the rate of 28.8% year on year. During this growth we’ve added staff and equipment and as we celebrate our 7th anniversary we boast state-of-the-art equipment and facilities including toll free phone lines, multi-line fax, secure data storage, advanced reproduction equipment, secure redundant broadband internet access, state-of-the-art closing and escrow task specific software and the list goes on and on.
Reliable has invested in Navarre by first purchasing 3,600 square feet for closing operations and later an additional 2,800 square feet for administration, closing and classroom facilities. We are currently seeking to purchase our own location in the Pensacola market but given the hurricane created pressures on space we’re taking our time.
We have every intention of expanding into surrounding markets to better serve our customers but we intend to do it right. A title company must have a customer base established but more importantly a skilled, knowledgeable staff from day one. The title business is cyclical and can be rocky. When we open an office it’s a marriage to that community and we’re committed for the long haul, for better or for worse.
The owners and employees of Reliable take pride in the strides we’ve made since opening from a competitive standpoint. But more importantly we’re proud of the growth in knowledge and achievement we’ve accomplished personally as well as on behalf of our communities. We look forward to continuing this growth and achievement into the future.
