Client development, client management, and product oversight for specialty products offered in the real estate, mortgage finance, and insurance industries.

About

The Specialty Group, Inc. was born out of the ingenuity and success of our affiliate company, Westcor Land Title Insurance Company.

For that reason our pedigree is that of a top five U.S. title insurance underwriter, and the perspective, experience, and financial stability that comes from the discipline of title insurance.  Built upon that important foundation, The Specialty Group, Inc. creates custom products and services that may not fit into the typical mold of insurance or real estate products as we know them, and that is where we can let our creative and consultative minds run wild.  Our team knows, loves, and is passionate about the real estate, insurance, and mortgage lending marketplace, and has a great level of respect for the incredible economic engine that this sector represents, while also representing intensely personal, emotional, and memorable experiences for consumers.  We love what we do and it shows.  The Specialty Group, Inc. encompasses an incredibly varied and diverse suite of people, divisions, products, services, and technologies which serve these markets, and we’re growing every day.
