About Our Company
In 1971, Lower County Realty Abstract Company was founded by, State Senator Joseph A. Maressa, Sr., Esquire, with the mission of providing accurate and efficient settlement services to the real estate community in the "lower end” of Camden County.
In 1983, upon graduation from college Joseph A. Maressa, Jr., joined the firm and was charged with the task of expanding the products, services and market share of the company with an emphasis toward specialization in the new construction and commercial closing arena. This mission proved to be a successful one and over time the client base grew at a rapid pace. The company quickly developed expertise in new construction and commercial transactions and it wasn't long thereafter that Lower County Realty Abstract transformed itself into a regional player with a broad spectrum of title and settlement services and a diverse stable of clients. As a result, we felt compelled to change our name to one commensurate with our expanded scope of services and geographically diverse client base. It was at this time Lower County Realty Abstract became Title America.
In a continual effort to develop business relationships, while building upon their reputation of accurate, prompt and courteous service, Title America began offering Full Service Real Estate Processing, Post Card Farming Services, Open House Marketing, 1031 Exchange Services, Closing Cost and Hud-1 Analysis, Lot Acquisition Services and 24/7 Transaction Status on the web via the Closing Binder ™. Their unique “bundle of services” caught the attention of various national and regional builders with whom they have forged exclusive relationship in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
