Our Story

Lighthouse Title has served its customers since opening its doors in Holland, in 2001. Since our beginnings, the company has grown to be the title company of choice across more than 35 locations between Michigan and Wisconsin. 

The company is the brainchild of three innovative industry veterans, who aspired to bring personalized real estate title and closing services to all parties involved in a transaction. Our unofficial company “mascot,” the Big Red Lighthouse, on the shores of Lake Michigan exemplifies the commitment we offer our customers. With Lighthouse Title, no one navigates their journey alone. We are here for you each and every step of the way.
