Our Title Company

Molly, our title mascot. Rest in peace baby girl!

In 2008, in the midst of the housing crisis, Michele Casale saw an opportunity in the decline of the mortgage market and started Settlement Engine.   It was a bold move that resulted in a company that has grown into a respected title insurance company in a competitive industry. Ms. Casale’s experience as an Executive Producer for film and television served her well in heading up this business.  Her unflagging commitment to integrity, combined with her abilities as a team leader, dealing with chaos, making last minute decisions and hiring an experienced team — all helped her turn Settlement Engine into a creative force respected by its peers.  Creative?  In the title business?  Absolutely! Convincing executives to switch title companies is difficult at best.  Most times it’s easier to stay with an existing title company, even when the service is sloppy, than it is to switch.  Call Settlement Engine.  You’ll get a level of service you never thought possible from day 1.
