Orange Coast Title Company
Orange Coast Title Company
Builder Services Division

The Builder Services/Commercial Division was founded by Rich Macaluso in 1979. Starting with a few Southern California Builders, this department has grown over 38 years to processing thousands of transactions throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and Utah.

The Builder Services/Commercial Division’s clientele has not only grown in size but also in its diversity. The department has an expertise in all types of title work such as residential subdivisions, commercial projects, investment properties and government contract work.

Some specialized services are available through this department:

Land and Investment Hotlines
Tools for marketing land and investment properties of all kinds, including hotels, commercial buildings and apartments. Brokers, landowners, and investment property owners submit a brief description of the property that they are selling. This created a publically searchable database of commercial and investment properties.

DRE Processing
Certain subdivision projects in the State of California must be filed with the Department of Real Estate before the homebuilder can sell his houses or units. Orange Coast Title provides the processing of this filing free-of-charge (when we are insuring the project). Our DRE Coordinator is Donna Lawler, who has 44 years of experience. Donna has handled all types of subdivision projects and provides unparalled service to her clients. Donna may be reached at (909) 987-5433. Builder Services main FAX number (800) 700-9037.

The success of Orange Coast Title and our Builder Services/Commercial Division is in its true commitment to service. We recognize that each client has unique needs and we customize our service to meet those needs. Structuring this division under one management team means that all clients have easy access to quick management decisions on title issues. This "corporate relationship" results in clients getting consistent service, even when doing business in multiple counties or states. Orange Coast Title has been successful largely due to our ability to close tough transactions and forge long-lasting client relationships.
