Local businessmen Bill King and Justin Pobst purchased the company and have expanded the locations to include Sikeston, Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff, Jackson and Marble Hill.
The former Lichtenegger Title Company of Jackson, now Regional Title, was also acquired. A merger was completed in June.
Now with five locations, Regional Title serves over 20 counties in Missouri. They have 18 highly trained staff members, as well as four attorneys to provide prompt legal answers when needed.
The Sikeston office, located at 602 Matthews St., opened in July. Marilyn Huffstutler is the manager and has several years of experience in the title business.
She is assisted in the office by Debbie Aters, who is the processor for the location.
"Regional Title strives for customer satisfaction and reliability with 24-72 hour turnaround time in our primary counties," said the owners. "Regional Title is very flexible in scheduling closings and will work to accommodate all the parties to a closing, including buyers, sellers, lenders and realtors."
The office hours from Sikeston's Regional Title are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Regional Title is authorized agents for First American Title Insurance Company, Chicago Title Insurance Company, Security Union Title Insurance Company and Farmers National Title.
