Founded more than 125 years ago, Stewart Title provides residential and commercial title and escrow services throughout Central Texas. “Our longevity in the Texas title insurance industry, our dedicated and experienced employees and the wide array of services we offer to our customers set us apart,” says Darian Rausch, sales manager for Stewart Title of Austin.

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re a home buyer, home seller, lender, investor, broker or real estate agent – we never stop working to make the real estate closing an enjoyable experience and back every title insurance policy with leading underwriting expertise,” he says.

A Texas-based company, Stewart Title has deep roots in Central Texas. “Our Austin division currently supports the needs of our customers at our eight locations conveniently located throughout Travis, Williamson and Hays counties,” says Rausch, who oversees the business development team and the sales and marketing activities for Stewart Title of Austin as well as coordinates the REALTOR® continuing education programs for Stewart Title’s Austin and San Antonio divisions.

With every closing, Stewart Title is dedicated to communicating clearly, responding quickly and making the closing a memorable, relationship-based experience. “When it comes to overcoming obstacles in your transactions, our escrow officers are the solution you need,” Rausch says. 

Additionally, Stewart Title’s business development team supports the needs of REALTORS through time-saving tools and educational opportunities. “From our people to our products, Stewart Title is dedicated to providing expert real estate professionals and a full range of closing services, which make the real estate transaction process easier and also help grow your business,” Rausch says. 

Outside of the contract, Stewart Title is dedicated to supporting the business needs of real estate professionals through continuing education classes, market stats, property profiles and other real estate tools, as well as an extensive library of marketing materials for open houses, farming and other prospecting activities. 

“Our app, StewartNow, is an impressive all-in-one app REALTORS and lenders can use to conduct farming research, create a property profile and generate buyer and seller net sheets,” Rausch says. “Also, we are strong advocates for professional development through continuing education. Stewart Title of Austin is excited to launch our Agent Coaching for Excellence (ACE) business coaching program in 2020 and an extensive curriculum of new REALTOR continuing education classes.”

With its long-standing history, expertise and evolving services, Stewart Title has become one of the most recognized and respected title and escrow companies in Texas. “Stewart Title knows Texas real estate,” Rausch says. “We are a Texas-based company that’s been closing real estate transactions for more than 125 years. With deep roots right here in Central Texas, our escrow staff averages over 20 years of experience.”
