I have had three contacts in the last couple of weeks where friends in the industry have reached out to find competent title abstractors and examiners. In one case it was searches for cell towers in Michigan, in another an expert witness for a complicated title indexing issue, and the third for a company that can’t find experienced, competent people for complex searches. They were looking at sending a team of “professionals” all over the country for those difficult searches that require serious expertise. Why is it that we are all fighting for $25 searches for the simple ones, when others, willing to pay can’t find experienced people. Think about that. Maybe we need to change our focus.
