Winter Park, FL -- Westcor Land Title Insurance Company, the national independent underwriter, has opened its Western Agency Operations office in Denver, Colorado, to support independent title agencies in states west of the Mississippi. The company offers a full menu of underwriting services to independent agents that can be customized to meet and support individual agency needs, providing services in California, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Nevada and Idaho

“We’re really excited about our new office,” said Mary O’Donnell, Westcor’s president. “We have an experienced staff that brings a wealth of knowledge in the settlement services industry.”

Westcor is a full-service underwriter that prides itself on independence. Its foundation is built to engage independent agencies looking for an alternative to the industry’s established underwriters. Westcor’s purpose is to provide support solutions that promote stability, growth and continued independence. From its base in Denver, the new office offers independent agencies traditional underwriting services with a customized approach. Every agent is treated on an individual basis to assist with local licensing requirements and/or business practices, affording convenience and functionality for their businesses to thrive.

“Our resources and services encourage independent agents to stay independent,” said O’Donnell. “Our unique approach has been well-received. Current western customers express appreciation for our proactive support and believe our culture and mission make a difference.”

Scott Chandler, Vice President and Regional Manager, of Western Agency is an industry veteran. Prior to his post at Westcor, Mr. Chandler spent a number years at United General.

“Our team has provided many years of quality service and value to our customers. We have a solid, dedicated group of professionals ready to provide solutions,” said Chandler. “Our success is measured by our customers’ success. If they do well, we will too.”
