HOUSTON, /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stewart Title Co. has opened a new office, Stewart Title of Spokane, LLC.

"We are excited about the staff we have hired for this new office and our capability to service business in the Spokane area," said Bob Oakland, group president, Stewart Title Co.

"We want to raise the standard of title and escrow service in Spokane County by offering our customers added value that they don't get at any other title company in town," said Carollo.
