"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."
