"Bud Johnson has been handling closings for my buyers and sellers in Pinellas County, Florida for over thirty years. He is unusually knowledgeable about real estate, titles, and closings, and has an ability to put buyers and sellers at ease. Melisa is one of the best I’ve dealt with. Once I turn a sales contract over to her, I know she will take care of the details and keep me posted on progress. I know my files are in capable hands. I’ve used other title companies from time to time, but I keep coming back to Bud and Melisa when I have a choice."

"As a mortgage banker I work with a plethora of title companies but there is only one I recommend consistently and that is Robin Hodgdon with Wollinka-Wikle Title Insurance Agency. I recommend Wollinka Wikle because they are an attorney based title company who are thorough, accurate and experienced. I recommend Robin because she is very knowledgeable, responsive and is always on point! If you need a title company, use this team once you will never want to use a different title company again."
