OUR HISTORY

ABOUT US

OUR STORY

We’ve served the title industry since 1988, so rest assured we know the importance of everything you do.

Our experiences continued to reveal the need in this business for high value, reliable labor resources to execute the deep skill tasks required to make title happen. This realization lead to the development and introduction of the Title Production Workforce, by far the most impactful offering we’ve ever brought to market.

Our history and experience has shaped us, but we’re most excited by what we’re doing now and preparing for the future, your future specifically.

So what is the
Title Production Workforce
anyway?

So what is the Title Production Workforce™ anyway?

We’re glad you asked. The short answer is it’s so important to us that we trademarked it.

The longer answer is the Title Production Workforce ™ is the core of how D. Bello provides services to its clients. It is the sum of all parts: Shadowing your operation, organizing your steps, designing workflows, creating checklists and guides, training and monitoring the quality of over 500 team members that will execute and produce the work our customers require. All this becomes the catalyst of an innovative approach to title production processing.

Start to finish, end to end. This is the Title Production Workforce ™.

Our CEO Jeffrey Bates on the Title Production Workforce™:

"We fill the holes in your office staffing and add to the capacity of your team. Our client’s employees perform less ‘busy’ work, generate more output and increase their value. Everybody wins. We make your staff more productive, and because our people understand title from Day One, can take things off your team’s plate in short order."
