About Bentley Title Company
Bentley Title Company was established by C.M. Bentley and operated by the Bentley family until 1946 when it was acquired by Mr. Virgil McNabb. McNabb owned and operated the business until 1967 when it was acquired by Don and Geraldine Freeman and was operated by Michael Freeman until December 2019 when the business was sold to Alpha Title Guaranty, Inc. headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri. Mr. Freeman continues to provide assistance with surveying and title description issues.
We are the only Title Company in Hickory County with books dating back to the founding of the County. Although we still provide title abstracting, the majority of our business is now title insurance. We are an agent for Alliant National Title Insurance Co. headquartered in Longmont, Colorado, providing both owners and lenders title insurance commitments and policies.
Other services offered by our organization are Real Estate Closing Services, Escrow Services (including 103 1 Exchange and construction disbursing) and Land Survey services (both boundary and Surveyor's Real Property Reports commonly known as 'Mortgage Surveys').
