LAND TITLE GUARANTEE COMPANY AND NAIOP INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP 

Land Title Guarantee Company, Colorado's largest locally owned and operated title agency, has a long and proud history with NAIOP. A corporate member since 1994, Land Title has been the presenting sponsor of the NAIOP Colorado Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge for over ten years and regularly supports various committees.

In addition to providing support for annual events, Land Title team members are personally involved with NAIOP. Most recently, Luke Davidson was a Board Member from 2014-2019 with Mindy Humphrey taking his place on the Board as of 2020. Both served as NAIOP committee members for the past 10 years.

“Land Title is a long-time supporter of NAIOP and our partnership continues to be extremely mutually beneficial,” said John E. Freyer, Jr., President of Land Title Guarantee Company. “In addition, we are delighted to be involved with the NAIOP Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge again this year, in that it marries students with industry leaders against a real-world backdrop to both challenge, educate and inspire everyone involved. We are happy to see a spotlight on Colorado Springs as a top place to work, live and grow.”

In late May, Land Title committed to sponsor the NAIOP Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge through 2027. NAIOP Colorado's Executive Director Kathie Barstnar shared, "Without the support and dedication of the staff and ownership of Land Title – NAIOP Colorado might not be the organization it is.  We certainly would not have been able to develop the Real Estate Challenge to the premier event it is without the long-standing support of Land Title both of time and treasure.  Additionally, we have worked together to help create good public policy that protects the consumer and advances the commercial real estate industry. We could not have asked for a better partnership."

Founded in 1967, Land Title has more than 50 offices spanning the state with its headquarters in the heart of Cherry Creek North. Land Title is the commercial market share leader in both transactional and dollar volumes across all of Colorado in each of the last 10 years. With more than 600 annual closings over $10M, the Company boasts the largest team of tenured title, closing and sales professionals dedicated to the commercial real estate market. By combining the financial strength and flexibility of the nation’s strongest underwriters with the knowledge of Colorado real estate laws, customs and markets, Land Title seeks to deliver an unsurpassed transactional experience.

The team closed some of the largest, most complex and most recognized transactions in Colorado including Union Station, McGregor Square, Larimer Square, Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, among others.

Further, Land Title is dedicated to Colorado communities. Each year, the Company supports numerous organizations across the state ranging from local food banks, to mental health advocacy groups, to youth athletics and relief for those impacted by wildfires. Leadership starts at the top and the executive team regularly donates their time to professional and civic organizations that promote and support the communities in which we work.

Denver leadership and NAIOP connection
