Our History

North American Land Transfer

NALT LogoIn 2002 after more than 16 years in the title insurance business and the birth of our daughter Olivia, I was ready to be a stay at home Mom.  However, after 14 months, I realized I missed my work and decided to work part-time, from home, with an occasional visit to the office which I had been affiliated with for more than nine years.

In 2003 Dave decided to leave consulting and put an end to his out of town travel.  With my title background and Dave's experience in operations and technology, we jumped at the chance to become entrepreneurs.  Late in 2003, North American Land Transfer was born, initially operating out of our home. 

Our "office" thrived.  Less than a year later the two of us were closing over 50 transactions per month.  It was time to move.  We found the perfect space and set up shop in our first "real" office.  We built a solid business with a reputation for excellent service and attention to detail, but we felt something was missing. 

In early 2008 we started talking about change.  At first it was a discussion on simply changing our name, then it grew into a vision of changing our company's identity and how we fit into our community.  We started to work on plans for Community First Abstract.

Community First Abstract

Community First AbstractFast forward to 2009 when "NALT" began operating as Community First Abstract.  

As always, Independent:  Also important to us is transparency in the real estate process  We do not currently and have never had an alliance with any real estate or lending entity.  Why is this important?  We earn your business. Consumers like us because of our independence and the comfort of knowing that we are looking out for their best interests.  When professionals refer us to their clients, it is because there is no question that the transaction will be smooth and efficient and every detail attended to. And both consumers and professionals like the fact that they can speak directly with the business owner when engaging us in a title insurance transaction.
