Proper Title, LLC is celebrating its 10th anniversary

Proper Title, LLC, a full-service title insurance agency serving the residential and commercial real estate industries, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Proper Title launched in 2013 with offices in Northbrook and Libertyville. Since then, the title insurance agency has expanded to 14 closed offices throughout Chicago and northwest Indiana.

In 2015, Proper Title founded the Proper Giving Foundation, a non-profit organization funded by a percentage raised from each residential and commercial transaction. To date, Proper Giving has donated $420,000 to local charities, with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago being the largest beneficiary. Proper Title employees also volunteer at Lurie’s throughout the year and support the hospital’s annual “Move for Kids” walk. Proper Title also sends emails to its attorney clients asking them to nominate their favorite non-profit for a quarterly charity nomination. Proper Title’s Board of Directors reviews the nominees and sends a $2,500 donation to the chosen charity.

The decade-old agency has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of America’s Best Startup Employers, has won the Fidelity Excellence in Action award nine years in a row and has twice been named to Crain’s Chicago Business’s “Best Places to Work” list. Other accolades include being named a Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune in 2022, winning Company of the Year by REjournals in 2022, and receiving the WWG National Title Insurance Company Wow Award in 2021 and 2022.

“Proper Title’s evolution is undoubtedly a result of our strong, experienced and knowledgeable team relationships and making customer service a top priority,” said Cathy Kwak, Chief Operating Officer. “I look forward to seeing where our continued level of excellence takes us over the next 10 years and beyond.”

Founded as the housing market began to recover from the Great Recession, Proper Title identified a growing demand among attorneys, brokers and lenders for concierge-level title insurance and escrow services.

By its fifth year, Proper Title has emerged as the fastest growing title agency in the Midwest. In 2018, the agency added offices in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood and Oak Brook. Offices were added in Orland Park and Park Ridge in 2020, and closing locations in Naperville, Schererville and Valparaiso, both in Indiana, opened in 2021.
