Community Spotlight – Ellensburg & Cle Elum, WA

Posted on | October 9, 2018

When most people attempt to describe Washington State, they think of rain and coffee – while both may be true, Eastern Washington delivers much more than just stereotypical illustrations. Two hours from the hustle and bustle of Seattle and from scenic wine country, both Ellensburg and Cle Elum provide opportunities for both the outdoor and city lover.

Establish in 1998 in Kittitas County, AmeriTitle continues to be the #1 title company in the county with the largest and most experienced staff.

Ellensburg is home of Central Washington University – with a growing student population of over 12,000 in 2018. Ellensburg downtown reflects the college lifestyle, with many pub style restaurants and bars with an abundance of coffee stands and taco trucks.

More than just a college town, Ellensburg is nestled right along the Yakima River, which offers both river floats and fishing throughout the summer. Hosting one of the top 15 rodeos in the country, Ellensburg Rodeo is the biggest yearly event held every Labor Day weekend, bringing plenty of visitors to the quaint town – AmeriTitle has been a proud sponsor of the event for the past 20 years.

Although a small town, Ellensburg isn’t afraid to work internationally. The biggest employer outside of the university is the hay industry – which is exported all over the world, particularly a large percent is sent to Japan and China.

Although an even smaller community, Cle Elum is the gateway to all recreation sites in the upper county. Tourists travel to Cle Elum for skiing, camping, hiking, and fishing – or escaping to the destination resort, Suncadia to relax in beautiful vacation homes.

When asked what AmeriTitle loves most about being a part of the local communities, fellow Title Officer, Laura Woodiwiss commented, “Our community is so small and tight knit that I have personal relationships with many realtors and people in the lending industry, It’s great when a friend or someone else I know is buying, selling, or refinancing. This makes many transactions personal to me, which in turn, makes me more invested and attentive.”

AmeriTitle is proud to serve the title and escrow needs of this community. If you’re planning to buy or sell property in the area, please ask your real estate professional to choose AmeriTitle.
