Professional, Trustworthy and Informative
We were so pleased that the buyer selected Vincent Place Title for our closing. We never had to worry about anything; the team had it covered. At closing, my husband and I were completely confident that everything was being handled accurately, which put us at ease after some bad experiences in past closings at other places. We had heard great things about Mr. Shapiro in the McLean community and we plan on using his law firm and title company in the future.

Unprofessional and Does Not Adhere to the Terms and Conditions of the Contract! Does not respond! Rude!
I don't know what is worse...the slow response time, or often no response, from Mr Shapiro, Naomi and staff, or the lack of concern for the terms and conditions of a contract. Due to this title company, and this title company alone, settlement was delayed 5 days! Unbelievable! They have no problem wasting people's time... they have no problem standing up a party to the transaction. The Buyer selected this company to do settlement for a Maryland real estate transaction. Paragraph 24 of The Maryland Residential Contract of Sale specifically states that the settlement costs and fees are the costs of the Buyer. Buyer and Seller had signed this contract, accepting such a term and condition. Mr Shapiro FAILED and would not remove all of the junk fees from the Sellers side of the transaction despite the Maryland Residential Contract of Sale providing him with direction, that the costs and fees are the costs of the BUYER, NOT THE SELLER. They had hundreds upon hundreds of dollars of fees stacked on the Sellers side of the transaction - Over $650 in bogus fees. I was able to get this down to $250, but still, this was $250 too much. They ordered a notary to visit the Seller for signatures, or so they say they did. The notary was a no-show!!!! The Seller sat waiting for hours for no one to show up! Despite many calls and emails, which they ignored, Mr Shapiro and staff did not tend to this no-show appointment until days after! How rude! Beware if this company has been selected to do settlement. Horrible communication, horrible interpretation of the contract (or none), ridiculous with poor follow up. One star rating is really too much.

Expert hand through the closing process
When I chose who to go to for my first closing, I did not expect how complicated it could potentially be. I had plenty of options, but opted for a trusted local company. Vincent Place Title managed the difficult paperwork and legal discussions with my bank, line of credit, and real estate agent. The attention to detail and hands-on approach made a potentially time consuming process quite rapid. I was always kept in the loop - they proactively addressed issues with all parties. Since then, I've used Vincent multiple times. Highly recommended!
