Nicknamed “The Cherry City,” Salem, Oregon is home to a rich history and is nestled just an hour’s drive south of Portland. The capital of Oregon is located in the center of the Willamette Valley, and is the third largest city in the state after Portland and Eugene.
Just a short walk from the Willamette River, sits AmeriTitle’s Salem branch. AmeriTitle’s entire Willamette Valley operation includes: Silverton, Albany, Lebanon, Corvallis, and just recently opened in September, South Salem.
AmeriTitle’s Salem branch is extremely active in their community. Back in 2007, they created a four-night, live-band karaoke competition they called, “AmeriTitle Idol.” After becoming a Salem staple, the branch erected a stage on Church Street in front of the office for a one-night AmeriTitle Idol All-Star event in 2013. The All-Star Event raised close to $27,000, and the AmeriTitle Idol overall has raised $103,000 and counting!
The Big LeBocce is the branch’s inaugural bocce tournament that has been held since 2012. After adding Silverton as a venue, a 16-team tournament has grown to 64 teams! Each team makes a donation as their entry fee, and each plays for the local non-profit of their choice. This incredibly fun and lively charity event has raised over $53,000 to date.
Administrative Assistant, Cindy Peck, explains AmeriTitle’s love for joining the local community: “we love the sense of belonging. Our community is still small enough that each personal effort is felt. Combine that with a company that encourages and supports volunteerism – a home run!”
Bart Cedillo, Escrow Officer to the branch, illustrates further the love the branch has for the industry and the clients they serve: “I love the camaraderie we have with each other and our clients. Not only do we serve such a wide variety of wonderful people, but we are also presented with varying ways to serve them. It keeps it all exciting.”
AmeriTitle is proud to serve the title and escrow needs of this community. If you’re planning to buy or sell property in this area, please ask your real estate professional to choose AmeriTitle.
