Our Services

1st Advantage makes buying, selling, or refinancing a fast and easy process.

1st Advantage Settlement Services handles every aspect of real estate closings.


Your home is your most valuable asset, and you want to avoid surprises. We work with your real estate agent and lender to make the process efficient and seamless.


We can assist with commercial and investment transactions, including single and multi-unit residential, office, retail, industrial and agricultural.


You should arrange and close on your financing before you begin construction. Lenders generally require the priority of their loan and the release of any previous liens.

Title Searches

A title search is an important part of the settlement process.  It involves detailed research to determine if there are any liens, mortgages, assessments, or anything else that might affect the title to the property.

Title Insurance

To protect yourself against unforseen circumstances, such as errors, omissions, forgery, or undisclosed heirs, title insurance will provide you with the ultimate protection.  Learn more about title insurance here.

Document Preparation

A real estate transaction involves a good deal of paperwork. We handle everything, including the review of legal documents, analysis of lender requirements and instructions, and preparation of all closing documents.

Legal Services

Our team includes a licensed real estate attorney in-house that is available to handle any issues that might arise.  We can assist with contract negotiation, draft documents, and represent you at settlement.

Private Transactions

Even if you are buying or selling without a real estate agent, you will likely need professional help. We can draft the agreement of sale, prepare the closing documents, and coordinate the entire transaction.

1031 Exchanges

A 1031 Exchange allows an investor to sell a property and reinvest the proceeds in a new property. If done correctly, this will allow the deferment of capital gains taxes. Our team can help you understand the technicalities and minimize your tax liability.

When you work with 1st Advantage Settlement Services, our team will guide you through the entire settlement process, take care of all the details, and be there to help you every step of the way.

Are one or more parties outside of the local area? We can arrange for a local witness closer almost anywhere.

If you are an ongoing client, such as a loan officer, real estate agent, or investor, you will have the peace of mind of working with the same team member for every transaction.
