About Us

Shop for title services, save on closing costs

We are a title company that's known for our top-notch customer service as well as the creative ways in which we have implemented technology to streamline the closing process and lower closing costs.

The biggest benefit of our efforts is that our customers typically enjoy a huge closing costs savings when they choose us over the less tech-savvy companies or those companies who maintain referral relationships that inevitably pass their referral costs down to their customers.

We specialize setting the bar other title companies aspire to reach. Whether it's doing something simple like posting our rates publicly online or something a bit more complex like developing a first-of-its-kind real estate app that can determine exactly how much it will cost to buy or sell a home, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our business and the experience of our customers.

The Washington Post, Washington Business Journal, National Public Radio, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, Inman News, Title Report, Washington Times, Bankrate.com and many more have featured Federal Title.

Established in 1996

Independently owned and operated, fully licensed and full service, Federal Title & Escrow Company began doing business on a desk company founder Todd Ewing made from a piece of wood stretched across a couple of sawhorses.

Today the company's main office is located in the District's Friendship Heights neighborhood and employs a staff of 16. A second location began operating on the 14th Street Corridor in the fall of 2015.

Reliable, on-time closings

We are a privately owned title company that does not participate in Affiliated Business Arrangements or Marketing Services Agreements, which means less expense is passed on to consumers. Let us assist with your next real estate purchase or refinance.
