Milwaukee’s oldest independent title insurance agent began on July 1, 1949 when William Hoyer opened his own title insurance agency. Kansas City Title Insurance Company was looking for an agent in the growing Milwaukee area, so William sold his Kenosha abstract company to begin a new company in the booming Milwaukee market. Title insurance was a relatively new product that was beginning to replace traditional abstracts – it offered insurance protection from past ownership claims, something that abstracts lacked. William’s oldest son, Nic, joined the business with him and is still a vital part of the company today.
Wisconsin Title Service started with three people and has grown to (at one point) employ about 90 people. There are two additional companies which branched off of the original – Wisconsin Title Closing Services started in 1989 and Midwest Mortgage Credit which was formed in 1995.
Today we celebrate being in business for over 70 years. Innovation and service have become the trademarks of the Wisconsin Title family of companies. Always focused on customer service, Wisconsin Title is a leader in the title, closing and credit business. Our employees are the key ingredient in the success of our companies. At Wisconsin Title Closing and Credit Services we feel our employees are our greatest asset.
