California Members Title Insurance Co. has received its certification from the California Department of Insurance, and will serve credit unions and other lenders in the Golden State. Serving both residential and commercial property needs, the company is a full-service title insurer and settlement organization.
Frank Berriz is president/CEO of the company. Berriz co-founded American Coast Title in Southern California in 1988 and ran the company until 2013, when he sold his interest in it.
