Land Title and Escrow Company was founded April 3, 1940, with 25 original shareholders, many of whom were involved in the local farming community. Currently, approximately 65% of our stockholders are heirs of those original 25. In fact, each stockholder can trace his/her history at some time to someone who lived in or worked in either Skagit or Island counties.
Originally called Mount Vernon Abstract & Title Co., Inc., we had one office in Mount Vernon with a title plant for both Skagit and Island counties. We took the name of Land Title and Escrow Company in 1958 when we physically opened an office in Oak Harbor and separated the title plants with Skagit County’s plant located in Mount Vernon and Island County’s plant located in Oak Harbor. Today, we serve our customers from 5 locations – Burlington, Anacortes, Oak Harbor, Freeland and Stanwood/Camano Island.
We are proud of the heritage Land Title and Escrow Company has in the communities we serve. “Local people serving local people.”
