When it comes to buying property location is everything. When it comes to serving potential property buyers, being a local company is just as important, said John B. Martin, co-owner for Stewart Title of Silverdale and Bainbridge Island.
We are totally committed to making a go of it, Martin said recently from his Levin Road office. The title company opened in June and is run by Martin and his wife Lynn, who is the businesss bookkeeper. She works from an office in their home and raises their three boys ages 13, 11 and 9.
Stewart Title, the nationally known corporate giant, pulled out of Kitsap five years ago.
The new Silverdale office is majority owned by the Martins, but has the backing and name recognition of Stewart Title.
Martin moved to the area about five years ago and oversaw offices in Washington and Alaska. He has been in the title business since 1993.
The Martins moved to Kitsap from Houston after visiting a friend here and currently live on Bainbridge Island.
He called Silverdale a logical place for an office. The Silverdale office is located at 9633 Levin Road Suite 101 and the Bainbridge Island satellite office is located at 330 Madison Ave. South, Suite. 201.
What we have to offer is were extremely flexible, Martin said. Stewart Title has seven full-time employees with two, part-time employees. The offices are open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. but Martin said hell work around his clients schedules.
Were new, were small. Well go where we need to go to sign, Martin said.
We will do everything we can to accommodate what anybody needs. Well bend over backward to try and get things done, he said.
